    1. Now You Can Drive the ‘Flying Car’

    If you want to risk your life, the founder of Moller International, the developer of Skycar, is giving you the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the “flying car” for a mere $15,000. The Skycar has been in the works for decades, but it needs one last boost to get off the ground (ha ha). The company is hoping for $958,000 in funding and claims to have partners who will match contribution amounts. In theory, the car will be driven on the road and take off and land vertically. Do you dare?

  2. Yeah, No Thanks Freaky Ice Cream Glows in the Dark Lick Me I'm Delicious

    2. Freaky Ice Cream Glows in the Dark

    Attention science fiction fans: a British inventor just debuted glow-in-the-dark ice cream, and it looks pretty wild. The Lick Me I’m Delicious Ice Cream (yes, seriously) is created using synthesized luminescence protein from jellyfish so that when you lick it, the ice cream literally radiates. But there’s a catch: just one scoop of the trendy new ice cream costs $220. For a slightly cheaper option, you can try the gin and tonic sorbet, but it only glows when placed under a UV light.

    3. Gator Spotted at Chicago Airport

    Allie, a three-year-old American alligator, was seen leisurely chilling under an escalator at Chicago O’Hare airport by a traveler. Police were able to get the two-foot gator into a box using a broom and transferred her to the Chicago Herpetological Society. A spokesman said that Allie “needs time to recover” after the incident since she was likely just “dumped” there. Because conditions in Chicago aren’t exactly suitable for an alligator, Allie’s health is at risk. Poor thing!

    4. Meet the Greediest Walnut Thieves

    Stealing walnuts from farmers isn’t a new crime, but never has it been so aggressive. Thieves snuck onto farm property in Escalon, California, during late hours and boxed up three large containers filled with more than 140,000 pounds of walnuts—that’s $400,000 worth. The sheriff's department is on the search for the culprits, but has no suspects at this point. “Bottom line, we are going to have to do more in terms of, one, capturing these folks and—two—more importantly, prosecuting them too,” Bruce Blodgett of the San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation said.

    5. 805 Nudists Go Skinny Dipping

    In an attempt to break the Guinness world record for most skinny-dippers in the same place, 805 nudists headed to Haulover Beach and rushed into the water. As you might expect, there were thousands of spectators. The president of the South Florida Free Beaches Association, Richard Mason, described the water as “choppy and windy,” but overall “it was a successful event.” The conditions made it challenging for the swimmers to stay in the same area, but if the attempt is counted, they could be the new recordholders.

    6. Say Bye to Corgis … Forever!

    This can’t be real. This can’t be real. Corgis, as in the most popular dog breed in Internet land, are in danger of becoming endangered. The cute pups are poised to be on the “vulnerable native breed” list, AFP reports. Who’s to blame? French bulldogs, that’s who. The rise in popularity of smaller foreign breeds have added to the Corgi decline.

    7. Woman Grows ‘Stache for Movember

    This is going to be an interesting 5 o’clock shadow. Sarah O’Neill is proudly growing out a mustache for the month of November to bring attention to polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition she was diagnosed with in 2006 that causes excess facial hair growth in women. O’Neill says she is “making a stand” by raising money for her Movember charity campaign. “I’ve spent a lot of time trying to make my face socially acceptable,” she said. “A lot of painful hours trying to get rid of the hairs, only for them to grow back days later and start it all over again.” We’d like to see a curly one!

    8. Bizarre Disease Melting Starfish

    A disease scientists are calling “spooky” is dismembering a record number of starfish and then melting their tissue until the sea creatures are turned into slime. It’s called “star wasting disease” and has never spread as widely as it is now along the West Coast. In one tide pool in Santa Cruz, California, 90 to 95 percent of the starfish community has been wiped out. Marine biologists and ecologists are launching an investigation this week in an attempt to identify the source of the outbreak.

    9. Deadly Spiders Hatch from Bananas

    A British family had to flee their house for three days after they saw “venomous” spiders begin to hatch out of a bunch of bananas as they were eating them. Consi Taylor only realized what the “funny looking spots” were mid-way through a Colombian Fairtrade banana, saying “I was so scared I started crying.” The family was sent to a hotel after a warning from a pest control firm that the arachnids could be deadly Brazilian Wandering Spiders. Sainsbury’s, the British supermarket chain that sold the fruit, paid $1,600 in fumigation, dry cleaning, and hotel stay bills.
