Dr. Doom! I don't know if he finished his doctorate, after that terrible accident that left him scarred.
Dr. Frankenstein does have a MD or PhD, I think. He may be trusted with your life, since he can restore life to your dead body. On the other hand, he may put someone else's brain into it . . .

I am overwhelmed. I would not have been so gracious for the first gift as this boy, who apparently must glue his shoes to repair them as a normal part of his life. It makes you want to start a Kickstarter for him to raise a scholarship or something.

Article linked by Dave Barry says: "He said that he had captured the hornet with a butterfly net and held it with tweezers while he removed its sting and poison sacs."
I find this to be very unlikely. At least in bees, removal of stinger and poison sacs inevitably results in the bee's death (Bee stingers are barbed and cannot be pulled out of flesh, and so they are left behind by bees after stinging, killing the bee and leaving pumping venom glands and stinger in the victim). There is widespread skepticism at Twitter, where the pictures are posted. Most viewers believe the insect to be dead.

I was once thinking about deer antler velvet. Deer will shed velvet from their antlers by rubbing them on tree branches. If this 'volunteer velvet' is collected from the wild, would it be considered a meatlike product acceptable to vegans? (Its content of growth hormones and supposed effects on strength and wound healing are issues not addressed by this question)

Just out of college, I had a job netting salmon at Bonneville Dam. One guy sat on top of a ladder watching the fish pass through the fish ladder. He had a button to press that would direct salmon into a chute that ended in a 6' x 6' tub. The rest of us would dip net the fish into a small dumpster filled with water and a fish anesthetic. The fish were knocked out, and then transferred to a tank truck of water. When the tank was full of fish, the truck would drive to a fish hatchery where the fish would 'ripen' before their eggs and milt were harvested. The whole process was probably quite stressful for the fish. I imagine this is a nicer alternative.

Kinda like this puppy in the anime Silver Spoon, season 2. They have a bamboo container with a coin slot so people will contribute toward the puppy's upkeep.

India has a comprehensive national ID card now. On its introduction, a massive effort was made to record fingerprints and retinal scans of every person. Some people, particularly children under 10, the elderly and laborers in certain work areas, were particularly difficult to record. Some laborers had worn their fingerprints off to the point that the machines could not distinguish them (If they allowed the skin on their fingers to grow back, the fingerprints would have been restored).

Maybe they started reckoning their age in months while they were babies, and never stopped? 532 months is 44 years and change. It may be a count of menses, which would add another 12 years or so, depending on nutrition. This could make some of the lower ages, in the 200 range, still in the 30s.

"The thinking is that either taxes will cover the maintenance costs, or the city will keep growing and generate enough future cash flow to cover the obligations."
This is the definition of a pyramid scheme. Things should not depend on a constant rate of growth.

I cannot adequately express with mere words how disgusting these 'foods' are, and I am not even viewing the video in full-screen mode. Excuse me while I engage in some interpretive dance . . .

OK. Get it? That stuff looked gross!
