The plan was to s!@# bricks — gold bricks.
Paul Moran hatched a scheme to get rich quick by turning his own feces into gold, according to authorities in Northern Ireland. But like King Midas himself, Moran might have flushed his life down the drain in pursuit of his golden dreams.
Moran’s attempts at alchemy crossed the line into arson when he set his apartment on fire after placing his feces on an electric heater. Read More:
They are meant to soothe aches and pains, relieve stress and induce a sense of relaxation.
But aromatherapy oils may in fact do more harm than good, according to scientists.
They have claimed that the extracts – used in baths, massages or burned in rooms – react with the air to produce tiny irritant particles.
Researchers found that when the so-called essential oils were used in relaxation spas for massages, the concentration of these potentially harmful particles increased tenfold.
The scientists said that certain chemicals in the oils, called volatile organic compounds, mix with the air to form secondary organic aerosols. Read More:

The Fisker Karma electric car, developed mainly with your tax money so that a bunch of rich VC’s wouldn’t have to risk any real money, has rolled out with an nominal EPA MPGe of 52.
Not bad? Unfortunately, it’s a sham. This figure is calculated using the grossly flawed EPA process that substantially underestimates the amount of fossil fuels required to power the electric car, as I showed in great depth in an earlier article. In short, the EPA methodology leaves out, among other things, the conversion efficiency in generating the electricity from fossil fuels in the first place.
Microsoft researchers have developed the next generation of the Kinect motion sensor – a device which turns any flat surface into a touchscreen.
The experimental sensor tracks movements on anything from a human arm to a wall and makes it into a mobile computer. Read More:
Black women are surging ahead of black men both socially and economically, leading to a ‘relationship crisis’, says a professor of family law.
According to Ralph Richard Banks, as black men fall behind in education and income, they become less compatible with women of the same race, leading to black females becoming the ‘most unmarried’ group in American society.
In his book Is Marriage for White People? How the African American Marriage Decline Affects Everyone, Banks says the most obvious solution is for black women to marry outside their race. Read More:
Most women are naturally bi-curious when it comes to sex, a new report has discovered. And what’s more, it becomes more pronounced the older they get. The latest research simply claims it perfectly normal.

If someone you know uses the past tense and likes to talk about what he eats, then beware – he or she could be a psychopath.
Researchers have identified the speech patterns which are the tell-tale signs somebody could be the next Hannibal Lecter.
Those who use verbal stumbles like ‘um’ and ‘ah’ should be treated with caution whilst anybody showing a lack of emotion could be trouble too.
