Tatt's amazing! Man has dolphin tattooed on his stump
A MAN who lost an arm in a freak accident has had his stump transformed by a tattoo artist into the head of a DOLPHIN.
Heine Braeck, 33, hated his stump, caused by a childhood accident on a train track.
The Norwegian realised the shape of his stump was identical to a dolphin's head.
So he asked Bulgarian artist Valio Ska to turn the stump into a 3D tattoo, with amazing results.
Valio spent over three hours on the meticulous ink job.
Heine said: "When I was 13 I tried to take a shortcut across the top of a stationary train which started moving.
"I lost my balance and grabbed hold of the wire that powers the train and got fried.
"The first thing I saw after surgery was how much my arm was shaped like a dolphin's head. READ MORE HERE

Proven: The More Poop a Chimp Throws, the Smarter it Is
It turns out chimps at the zoo insist on repeatedly hurling their feces at me because they're geniuses and not just because it's hilarious. Seriously. Scientists studied chimp throwing and developed the following axiom: The frequency and accuracy with which a chimpanzee throws objects—INCLUDING POOP—is directly correlated to its intelligence. It's good for society, too.
How did we learn this incredible piece of knowledge? Researchers at the National Primate Research Center spent an inordinate amount of time watching chimps throw all orders of things at each other. They compared data about how often and accurately monkeys hurl stuff to brain scans of the animals. Low and behold the best, most frequent throwers also exhibited increased activity in the motor cortex, and more connections in the areas of the brain which in humans are responsible for speech. In other words these chimps are more intelligent, but not book smart, jungle smart. READ MORE HERE
Bondage Couple's Wooded Fantasy Crashed By Cops
DECEMBER 1--After meeting on a fetish/bondage web site several months ago, two Georgia residents decided to fulfill their mutual desire of having sex in the woods. So the pair--both of whom were stepping out on their respective spouses--met up last week to “live out their fantasy,” according to a sheriff’s report.
The woman, 44, toted a gym bag with paddles, belts, and other bondage “toys.” The man, 64, drove his Nissan Altima to a spot on Ernest Elder Road in Barrow County, where the couple then entered a wooded area. About 100 yards off the road, the nature lovers began engaging in some consensual sexual activity.
But the Monday afternoon encounter between Wayne and Deborah did not have a fantasy ending.
A 19-year-old man who was walking home from the store spotted the locked Nissan and became suspicious, since it was “weird” to see an unoccupied vehicle parked off the roadway. While standing near the car, the man heard “a woman moaning and then screaming in pain.” A Barrow County Sheriff’s Office deputy was quickly summoned. READ THE STORY HERE
