Daily Record: Whisky And Guiness
Its been 20 years since The Goonies was released. Here's a guide to what the cast are doing now. Unfortunately Sloth died back in 1989.
As funny as it sounds, until today I always thought that 'Sloth' (or the man who played him) actually looked like that. I guess it was one of the first films that I saw that had a man made up like that and assumed that it must have been real. [via]
A man who was run over by a train has to have his left hand transplanted on to his right arm in order for it to be saved. Unfortunately this means that the tendons that control the fingers are reversed so that his thumb tendon no longer controls his thumb but controls his little finger. The video shows him trying to make use of his new hand. [via]
A Welsh artist who once turned a pub crawl into art is looking to create the world's largest sculpture made from fag butts. Here's what he posted on AWV.
As the world of the smoker and the cigarette is being outlawed and removed from public place society. The overall effect in the far future might lead to smoking dying out all together and cigarettes and fag butts to be rare priceless objects. This sculpture I want to make as a monument of the fag butt in today's society.
If you want to help make this sculpture feel free to send the artist your used cigarette butts. The address is

Late yesterday and today I have been swamped with hits from people searching for Brooke Greenberg. You may remember me posting about Brooke, the girl frozen in time, back in May. For some reason the news seems to latch on to this story from time to time and yesterday NBC ran the story on it's Dateline programme. You can watch the show here.
"Each month features a beautiful image, but in every picture is a nice picturesque pile of dog poop. Professionally photographed, these pictures are almost breath taking, and yet totally disgusting at the same time. Packed with fun facts and stories about dog poop, this calendar is an ingenious gag gift for both the dog lover and the dog hater!"
I can remember seeing reading about this man in FHM a few years ago. Apparently he caught the flesh-eating disease, necrotising fasciitis whilst out in his garden. Doctor's gave him the option of having his nose and eyes removed or dying. A tough call. He was given a prosthesis which did make him look relatively normal. [via]
