Musician’s violin starts plucking itself – what he found was way worse than a ghost playing it

| blog, L&B World, Weird | January 18, 2016

It was a dark, dark night – but the strings started to make a sound… (Getty file image)

Late one night, a musician heard his violin start to play all by itself.

As he lay in the dark, he summoned the courage to get up and see what was making the ‘soft sound, certainly audible and unmistakeable’ as his violin strings, wondering if it could be a ghostly spirit or a poltergeist moving the strings.

Picking up his camera, he moved quickly to snap a photograph of the instrument, hoping to capture any creature or apparition on film.

He managed.

This is the Thing he discovered…

Has the Mars Rover Curiosity captured a gorilla and tiny camel co-existing on the red planet?

That’s the question being asked by space watchers after an image surfaced from Mars appearing to show just that.

Having said that, it could actually be a normal-sized camel and a massive gorilla.

Or alternatively, and this theory’s been around since 2012, there’s a huge bear. What’s new about the picture is that nobody had noticed the camel-like figure before. Until now.

Instead of drifting away as peacefully as possible at a clinic in Switzerland, you could blast yourself into oblivion riding this ‘euthanasia rollercoaster’, which aims to deliver a lethal dose of G-Force.

Julijonas claims that his design would allow people to end their lives with ‘euphoria and pleasure’.

What actually happens if you hold your pee in for way too long?

Your kidneys probably won't burst... probably
Your kidneys probably won’t burst… probably

We’ve all been there – when you really need to go, but you have to hold it in for whatever reason.

It’s deeply unpleasant, and involves a lot of foot-tapping, leg-crossing, unattractive dancing around.

But what happens if you hold it in for too long?

Years of regularly holding your pee in can increase your risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and a condition where your bladder can’t fully empty, known as urinary retention.

Maths can be a bit dull – but it can also be really, really fun a lot of the time too.

There’s a spooky but amazing trick that’s doing the rounds, where you can work out your age from just your shoe size.
