  2. BUT HOW?! Permit Granted for Invisible Skyscraper GDS Architects

    2. Permit Granted for Invisible Skyscraper

    But if it's invisible, what's the point? South Korea is getting the world's first invisible skyscraper and the third-highest observation deck in the world, according to a press release. Architects leading the project on the Tower Infinity were granted a permit to get started on the 1,476-foot-tall building. The crystalized construction will include a water park, movie theaters, and restaurants. How does it appear invisible? Basically, a LED façade system and serious cameras will create the outlines of the tower. Cool stuff.

    3. ‘Random Guy’ Caught Living in Basement

    Students thought they were renting a typical house off campus at Ohio State University—you know, one without a surprise roommate—but they were so very wrong. At first, the students thought it was just a ghost rattling around in the basement, according to a campus newspaper, but all the creepy sounds and alarms they heard were actually another student who had set up camp in a utility closet. "It's funny now, but it potentially could have been extremely dangerous given that some random guy had a key to our house and was just living in our house without anyone knowing," legal house resident Brett Mugglin said. Uh, yeah.

    4. NASA: $18K for 70 Days in Bed

    Want to lounge in bed for 70 straight days, get paid $18,000, and score bragging rights that you helped astronauts go to Mars? NASA has announced a search for volunteers who can spend the 70 days doing whatever they'd like, as long as they remain in bed, heads tilted down at a six-degree angle. The study is seeking to identify the effects of microgravity on humans, and will simulate the duration of the spaceflight needed to bring astronauts to Mars in a few years time. "Couch potatoes is not an accurate description of what we are looking for," NASA's news chief says. "Subjects need to be very healthy.”

  5. PROCEED WITH CAUTION Sweden: It’s ‘OK’ to Masturbate in Public JENS KOEHLER

    5. Sweden: It’s ‘OK’ to Masturbate in Public

    Didn’t “target a specific person,” or just horrible aim? A Swedish man charged with sexual assault for masturbating on a beach in Stockholm was acquitted after a court ruled the act was not “directed towards one or more people.” The 65-year-old Swede was caught with his pants down, touching himself near the water’s edge in June. Thanks to this monumental ruling, Swedes can pleasure themselves in public so long as they’re somewhat discreet about it. “With that we can conclude that it is okay to masturbate on the beach,” the prosecutor declared. But don’t get too carried away on the shores of Stockholm: “disorderly conduct” charges may still apply.

    6. Burglars Steal ‘Spartacus’ DVD Set

    Certainly not one of your more typical burglaries. Two teenage suspects in New Mexico have been accused of breaking into a mobile home and ransacking the place for "multiple DVDs relating to Midget Pornography," as well as taking a Spartacus DVD set, a microwave oven, and a small table before burning the place down. A grand jury indicted 18-year-old Sergio Seanez on four felonies: arson, residential burglary, breaking and entering, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor for his role in the crime.

    7. Swastika Drawn on Cat With Marker

    A 1-year-old cat was returned to its owners after being brutally attacked in New Zealand. After petting the cat, one of the owners realized the feline had been partially shaved on his back, forehead, and legs. His whiskers were removed and a Nazi symbol was drawn on his skin in black marker. “It had obviously just happened. I just cried. It’s so horrible. I just couldn’t believe it,” the owner said. To make matters worse, the cat lost its tail when it was just two months old in a freak accident. "Now he is tailless, whiskerless, and has shaved spots."

    8. Skin Tattoo Can Read Your Heat Flow

    Coolest temporary tattoo ever! A team of researchers from the U.S., China, and Singapore has introduced a mesh patch that can monitor body temperatures. What else can it do, you ask? The thin device, which is applied with a type of glue (no, not Elmer's), can detect “clinically relevant information about cardiovascular health, cognitive state, malignancy, and many other important aspects of human physiology.” It isn't on the market yet, but soon enough.

    9. Beanie Babies Creator Evaded Taxes

    Hopefully H. Ty Warner kept the tags on all his Beanie Babies, because he's going to needs $53 million fast. The creator of the tiny-animal empire that ruled the ’90s has been accused of federal tax evasion. Apparently, as billionaires are wont to do, he had a secret offshore bank account and did not report the money he made from it to the IRS. Though a lawyer for the 69-year-old has issued a statement saying that Warner plans to plead guilty and pay the $53 million fine, there is still a chance that he could go to jail. A federal-tax-evasion conviction could mean up to five years in prison.

    10. ‘Selfies’ May Be Banned From Marathon

    “Selfies” aren't just annoying, they’re causing real harm, too. Those in charge of the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon are debating banning cellphones during the next race after people were injured trying to take pictures of themselves while running. Runners at the finish line of this year's race were reportedly bleeding and had been bruised, according to the bank's chief executive, Benjamin Hung Pi-cheng. “What we are trying to do is to encourage people not to do that. It not only endangers themselves but endangers a lot of people running behind them,” Hung said.
