An 80-year-old western Pennsylvania man has been charged with using his lawn tractor to fling rocks and debris at neighbors and police in three separate incidents since June.

The Beaver County Times reports Martin drove his lawn tractor toward three neighbors after using the vehicle to pull a bush out of the ground in a property line dispute on June 21.

Because as Buzzfeed as shown, apparently lists equal eyeballs, so even though I have a predisposition against lists, in this small context it’s warranted.
Believe me, the only way I can comfortably walk you through the stuff you see in Afghanistan that’s completely separate from the war – the stuff that both soldiers, native Afghans and Pakistani-trained Taliban fighters have to deal with – is to list one-by-one, the creepy crawly things that make up everyday life in the country America has been at war with for the last 12 years.
In the interest of full disclosure and honesty, not all of these things actually crawled into my bunk in Afghanistan. Over half of them did though. But I’m not going to say which ones.

This morning I woke up with this response to my response to Dan Abrams tweet about George Zimmerman dating again after his wife filed for divorce.
@jaykirell Hush, liberal. You would feel scared if Trayvon Martin moved next door to you in comparison to George Zimmerman.

I didn’t think anything of it. I figured, okay, crazy racist lady. Big deal. Then I looked up her profile and who was on her followers list:
I was like, wait, a US congressman follows this crazy lady?
Authorities say an immigrant suspected of entering the country illegally attempted to make his journey in an unusual but hot place — a shipment of red chiles.

Sleep is very ancient from an evolutionary perspective. The most primitive organism that is confirmed to have sleep-like activity (lethargus) is the nematode c. elegans.

A bizarre-looking web structure has been found in the Peruvian Amazon, and apparently nobody knows what it is, not even scientists.
The strange formation resembles a tiny spire surrounded by a webby picket fence and is about 2 centimeters (0.8 inches) wide. Georgia Tech graduate student Troy Alexander first spotted one of these on the underside of a tarp near the Tambopata Research Center in the Peruvian Amazon. At first he thought it might have been an aborted moth cocoon, he wrote on Reddit. But then he found several more, all of which looked quite similar.
