10 People Who Have Faked Their Own Deaths

While it's not something most people will ever have to resort to, there are a few legitamate reasons to fake your own death. Of course, if you do it because you think you're wanted for a crime, it might be a good idea to check that you are actually wanted first:

Bennie Wint thought he was a wanted man, so he went. On the eve of his marriage to Patricia Hollingsworth in 1989, he went for a swim, and never came back. He was presumed drowned, and his fiance, his ex-wife, and his four-year-old son mourned for him. Twenty years later, he was pulled over for not having a light bulb on his license plate, and he couldn't help but confess his sins. He told the police he had slipped away and “had never looked back” because he thought he was wanted on drug charges...It turns out, he wasn't wanted on drug charges after all, so the whole affair was for naught.

Let that be a lesson to all of you who think you're wanted for a crime. Also, if you're going to fake your death, don't go to your funeral...that's just asking for trouble. Read nine more stories of faked deaths at Oddee.

How 13 Video Games Got Their Names

Did you know Pac Man was originally called Puck Man because "puck" sounds sort of like the Japanese equivalent of "nom?" So how did it end up as "Pac?"

The name of the game, Pakkuman, was inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeia, “paku-paku,” which describes the sound of eating, similar to the English word “chomp.” As the game was brought to market, the title morphed into Puck Man.

But when Puck Man made his way to North America there was concern that the arcade cabinets would be vandalized by making the P into an F to spell something entirely different. A compromise was reached and the game became known as Pac-Man instead. Thanks to the American marketing machine, the name Pac-Man was eventually adopted for the game all over the world.

Find out the story behind 12 other game names from Mental Floss.

Why Are Dalmatians Linked to Firefighters?

These days any fire stations that actually have dalmatians just keep them around for the sake of appearances, but if you've ever wondered why they chose the spotted dogs in the first place, there's actually a good reason:

In the 1800s, fire engines were horse-driven carriages. Unfortunately, horses and much of the other equipment found in a fire station were a prime target for thieves...Eventually the solution became clear: a watchdog...Horses are not solitary animals...Left alone too long, they grow restless and neurotic. Dalmatians, it was discovered, more than any other breed of dog, formed an amazingly close bond with horses once they were introduced. They also became quite protective and possessive of their equine friends, so it became impossible for anyone to try to spirit away a horse under cover of the night.

Find out more about the bond over at Mental Floss.

9 Pet Races You Might Want to Host Yourself

Forget heading to the track to catch the horses, instead, grab your pets and some fellow pet owners and throw your own races right at home. Need a little inspiration? Here are a few great pet races:

Dachshunds

(Video Link)

This is one of the biggest pet racing sports around, in part because it’s sponsored by a major corporation: Wienerschnitzel. While smaller wiener races take place around the nation throughout the year, the biggest event, by far, is the annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals in California.

Chihuahuas

(Video Link)

Here’s another pet race with a big company behind it –the National Chihuahua Races, which are sponsored by PetCo. Unfortunately, it seems the company stopped sponsoring the event after the fifth annual competition, which was back in 2009. Sorry all you Chihuahua owners, I guess you’ll have to just organize and participate in your own city-wide races instead.

Hamsters

(Video Link)

While most small pet races involve putting the animals right on the track and letting them run wild, hamster racing more closely resembles NASCAR as the hamsters are actually put inside wheels that push along little tiny racecars. While not all of the races involve the cars –some just use balls, but the cars really do bring up the cute level drastically.

Oddly, while hamster racing is generally just a fun pet racing contest, it actually became a real gambling sport in England after a severe foot and mouth disease outbreak led to the cancellation of most horse races in 2001.

If you’re looking to get in on the action, PetCo hosts small, biannual hamster races in most of their stores, but if you’re planning to bet your paycheck, you’ll have to do it with your friends on the sly.
