Unusually Bad Credit Offer Of Your Choice

Saturday, December 15, 2007

Bad credit loans is taking america by storm and it is not showing any signs of stopping unless we educate ourselves on how to distinguish which is which. I found a web site that offers just this very good opportunity to everyone especially the first time credit loaners.

I actually went over the site and i checked over the auto loans section and I think the terms are well suited for a starting loaner since it is not that hard to compensate. They listed several sites that offer some of the best offers and i think it would be better if you try them out yourself. Go ahead!

Leatherback turtles' throats have spines that keep slippery prey like jellyfish from sliding out and escaping.

Amazon ants raid the nests of other ants to steal the other ants' larvae to hatch in their own nest. Then they use the hatched ants to do all their work for them.

Dolphins can swim and sleep at the same time.

In 7 years, one female cat and her babies can theoretically be the source of 420,000 cats.

Oysters can change from one gender to another and back again.

Fish can drown.

Another Wierd And Unusually Strange Animal

Saturday, November 10, 2007

Its been sometime since i posted here some wierd animals and in this light, i searched high and low for the animals that you might want to check out if you want to see some strange creatures. Now i made a post about axolotl, the aye-aye and the angora rabbit which I received some notable comments and that you guys wanted more so here I am again, with the ultimate pleasure of putting you guys in awe.

This one is quite a great find. This baby is known as the Blob Fish, a slimy little cutie. (eew! did i just sound like a sissy girl?). Anyway, as you can see, this fish does not almost have a bone, more so a skeletal system. The only thing that keeps this baby in tact is its minimal muscles. As it turns out, it if found in great depths in Tasmanian Ocean that is probably even deeper than the big deeper. Im just kidding! lol

Anyways, this unusual creature is lazy as it only floats on the ocean depths and wait for some food debris to get into its way and all it has to do is to suck it in and that pretty much is lunch for this strange animal.

Personally, i find the nose of this creature funny. Just look at it, its like a plastic surgery done half way because of financial constraints. haha! I have nothing against this big guy but hey, even celebrities are being probed for this issue.

Thats it for todays post guys! Be safe!

Another Weird Animal

Dear readers! Its time again to present another weird animal to each and every one of you. For this post, im going to tackle an animal from the mighty forests and close to the genes of humans. Oh c'mon! Im not talking about whales and clams here.

You know what im referring to. But hey! its not the average ones you see on discovery channel and animal planet. Dont believe me? Read on.

Notice its nose? Its one hell of a sniffer! Now, im not a zoologist so its pretty wise to refer to sources. Here it goes. . .

Nasalis larvatus also known as Long-nosed Monkey is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey. It is the only species in monotypic genus Nasalis.

The most distinctive trait of this monkey is the male's large protruding nose. The purpose of the large nose is unclear, but it has been suggested that it is a result of sexual selection. The female Proboscis Monkey prefers big-nosed male, thus propagating the trait.

Males are much larger than females, reaching 72 cm (28 inches) in length, with an up to 75 cm tail, and weighing up to 24 kg (53 pounds). Females are up to 60 cm long, weighing up to 12 kg (26 lb).

The Proboscis Monkey also has a large belly, as a result of its diet. Its digestive system is divided into several parts, with distinctive gut flora, which help in digesting leaves. This digestive process releases a lot of gas, resulting in the monkey's "bloated" bellies. A side-effect of this unique digestive system is that it is unable to digest ripe fruit, unlike most other simians. The diet consists mainly of fruits, seeds and leaves. Source:wikipedia

Now, hows that for an interesting animal? That's it for today folks! Be sure to bookmark this blog and keep on coming back! You will never regret it. Promise! ;)

Rick Jacobs Claims Bigfoot Sighting with Photos

Sunday, October 28, 2007

I thought the previous post about Angora Rabbit would be my last post for the day but i just have to post about this most recent Bigfoot Sighting.

A hunter in Pennsylvania named Rick Jacobs claims he has has a Bigfoot Sighting after wandering around the Allegheny forests. The picture here shows a figure close to a bear and a gorilla but local officials dismissed it as "a bear with skin disease". Rick says he captured it using a low quality camera that is on auto-trigger. Furthermore, the exact location of the Bigfoot Sighting was not disclosed to avoid the rush of bigfoot fanatics. They got the attention of the Bigfoot Research Organization and they are in to investigate. Let's see how they do.

Could this really be the "real" bigfoot? or is it just one of the urban legends we come to love?. Well, this is certainly not the end of it. Be sure to come back often as I run over this occurrences.

One Of The Weirdest Animals On Earth : The Angora Rabbit

Its time again to post another weird animal. This one is a variety of animals that we have come to adore both as a pet and as a media character. Dear readers, let me present to you. . . The Angora Rabbit.

Angora what?! Well, this fluffy weird creature is quite unique as you can see. By the way, what do you see? I see only a fur ball with a dark, rounded, gorilla faced rabbit (i assume it really is one). Well this is the point wherein we have to consult to our research to give a clearer picture of what this strange animal really is.

Heres what i knew from my ramblings : Its a domestic bred rabbit which originated from Ankara (the capital of turkey) and thus explains the name. Another thing is that it was brought to Europe as Royal Pets of the rich and famous during their times. Its fur, as what caught our attention, is easily pulled out even by just gentle pressure. Think of it as a balding hair, youll get an idea. lol

Thats it! I have brought you guys another reason to celebrate the distinctness of nature. There's even more from where it came from. So, be sure to come back often. Bookmark us! Youll never regret it.

Till the next post! Be safe! ;)

Interesting, Bizzare and Weird Sports - That Sums It All Up

Friday, October 26, 2007

Cheese Rolling

Without any doubt in my mind, this has got to be the most unusual and the strangest sport today. It happens in Cooper Hill, England. It is incredibly dangerous that it is very uncommon if all the players leave without a broken bone or an injured skull. How is it played? first, a master of ceremonies gives the countdown - "One to be ready, two to be steady, three to prepare, four to be off" - and then up to 20 contestants chase a seven-pound circular block of cheese down a steep, bumpy hillside, trying to catch it before it gets to the bottom of 300 yards below. Four games are played over the course of one day, including one for women.

This is a video of a recent competition. Watch and decide for yourself. Now, how do you define an "extreme sport"?

Viking's Extreme Cricket

As with many aspects of their culture, it’s unclear exactly what kinds of games the Vikings played, but one thing is certain - their games were incredibly brutal and violent, since they were considered training for personal combat.

From vague descriptions in Icelandic "sagas" - histories of the Vikings that were passed down orally for hundreds of years before finally being transcribed in the 1900s - one ball game sounds a bit like an early and very violent version of cricket. The main difference being that most contemporary cricket players can expect to survive to the end of the game.

Vikings, on the other hand, weren’t always so lucky. "Egil and Thord played against Skallagrim, who grew tired and they came off better. But the evening after sunset, Egil and Thord began losing. Skallagrim was filled with such strength that he seized Thord and dashed him to the ground so fiercely that he was crushed by the blow and died on the spot."

Random Unusual Facts About Animals Part 3

Here is another one from my unusual animals trivia vault. Ill be posting them by parts so you would have time to absorb it all. Have fun!

When snakes are born with two heads, they fight each other for food.

Frogs and mosquitos have teeth.

The underside of a horse's hoof is called a frog.

A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

Crocodiles never outgrow the pools in which they live. That
means that if you put a baby croc in an aquarium, it would be little for the rest of its life.

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

When frogs eat something that is poisonous or otherwise bad for them, they can throw up their entire stomach. That is, the stomach actually protrudes through their mouth and they wipe it with their right front leg.Why the right front leg? The stomach of frogs is slightly towards their left side. When the stomach is ejected, it pulls to the right (since the membranes holding the stomach in place are shorter on that side). Since the right front leg can reach the stomach (and the left can't), frogs use their right leg to wipe the stomach and get rid of whatever nasty material is disturbing them.

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten.

Cat's urine glows under a blacklight.

When opossums are playing "possum", they are not playing. They actually pass out from sheer terror.

Murphy's Oil Soap is the chemical most commonly used to clean elephants.

Most cows give more milk when they listen to music.

Penguins can jump as high as 6 feet in the air.

The world population of chickens is about equal to the number of people.

Interesting but Unusual Facts About Animals : A Chicken Survived Headless

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Now This story about mike (a wonder chicken) is strange as it is amazing. I categorized it as fact vs. fiction because it stirs up the imagination and logic of everyone including me. Heck, i couldnt believe this story either when i first heard i mean read about it. Let's see how you do.

Mike was a rooster that lived in the 1940's, and he lived even after his head was chopped off...for 18 more months! No kidding guys, this one hell of a chicken lived that long.

Farmer Olsen was planning on making fried chicken for his mother-in-law, and her favorite part was the neck. When he went to slaughter the chicken, he tried to leave as much of the neck in tact as he could. After he chopped off the head, the chicken got up and started resuming normal chicken behavior with the other animals, even though its head was totally missing! Olsen figured it might be an interesting curiosity, and after the chicken was still alive and well after a week, he took it into the local university to have scientists study Mike.

Scientists determined that he survived because the ax had missed his jugular vein, and a clot had prevented him from bleeding to death. They also discovered that Mike had enough brain stem left to carry on his normal rooster functions. Olsen had to feed him with an eyedropper, carefully dropping food into his exposed esophagus. Mike became quite famous, and lived for one and a half years with no head.

You think im making this all up still? Well, check out the main page of the website and find out for yourself here. But wait! Dont forget to show me some love by subscribing to my blog for more Unusual and Strange but true facts.

The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unique method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out.

Dfaubentonia is the only genus in the family Daubentoniidae and infraorder Chiromyiformes. The Aye-aye is the only extant member of the genus (although it is currently an endangered species); a second species (Daubentonia robusta) was exterminated over the last few centuries.Source:Wikipedia

The name was first intended as a joke, but has become the official scientific name. This tamarin lives in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas.

The fur of the Emperor Tamarin is predominantly grey colored, with yellowish speckles on its chest. The hands and feet are black and the tail is brown. Outstanding is its long, white mustache, which extends to both sides beyond the shoulders. The animal reaches a length of 24 to 26 cm, plus a 35 cm long tail. It weighs approximately 300 to 400 g.

Weird Animals - Ever Heard Of An Axolotl?

Saturday, October 20, 2007

Axo what?!? This is my reaction when i first heard of this weird animal. I came across this animal in my random search on the internet the other day and i thought its a great idea of adding it up in here. Look at his poor little guy. Now i know where the creators of pokemon got their inspirations from. lol

The Axolotl (or ajolote) (Ambystoma mexicanum) is the best-known of the Mexican neotenic mole salamanders belonging to the Tiger Salamander complex. Larvae of this species fail to undergo metamorphosis, so the adults remain aquatic and gilled. The species originates from the lake underlying Mexico City. Axolotls are used extensively in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate most body parts, ease of breeding, and large embryos. They are commonly kept as pets in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, Japan (where they are sold under the name Wooper Rooper, and other countries.

Axolotls should not be confused with waterdogs, the larval stage of the closely related Tiger Salamanders (Ambystoma tigrinum and Ambystoma mavortium), which is widespread in much of North America which also occasionally become neotenic, nor with mudpuppies (Necturus spp.), fully aquatic salamanders which are unrelated to the axolotl but which bear a superficial resemblance. source: wikipedia

Wierd Names : Strange Names And Urban Legends About Names

Thursday, October 18, 2007

In gradeschool, i had a friend named Patricio Patricio. No kidding! That's his name! His last name is Patricio and he was named the same exact thing by his parents for no apparent reason at all. You can look it up to my gradeschool graduation yearbook if i didnt sound that convincing enough for you. One time my curiosity got the best of me and asked him why in heaven's name did his parents give him that Strange and Weird Name, he just smiled and said, "to follow the tradition". As it turns out to my amazement, he was the third in the family to bear the name! His father is Patricio Patricio Jr. and that makes him naturally as Patricio Patricio III. Wow! But he told me he prefers to be called "Pat". Well pat, this one's for you man! Hope you dont ever get to read this blog at all. haha!

Since this events, i got a thing about weird names and through the years, I have encountered some Bizarre, Strange, Weird and majority are Funny but its either in Bisaya (my native dialect) or in Tagalog (the primary language in the Philippines). I will tell you some but i have to translate it for you guys. My cousin, Leah, married a guy with the his lastname as "Bajao" which literally means "rotten" or something rancid. Her marriage resulted to her name devastated and destroyed because now, she is known as "Rotten Leah". Well cuz, you better not read this blog. haha! Another rumor is circulating that a recent wedding had a poster outside the hotel reception "Cabahug - Otene Nuptial". When someone bisaya reads this, only one thing would come up to his mind "Smelly Penis". haha! With marriage like this, i better not marry at all! What are these guys thinking?! No offense though. But you guys are hilarious.

Another incident when I was watching a boring movie in the local theater i think it was the island that was showing then, I found the name "Coco Cole" listed as one of the floor managers or something. To add up, our former boarder had a wife named "Cory Aquino" the first woman president in the Philippines. One day, i received his mail and the postman was like "Good morning! A letter for Joyce (Boarder's name) from uhmm. . ahh. . the President??" I nearly broke my jaw bone laughing out loud. My girlfriend's gay friend is named Mikel Ho. Keep it goin mik! haha! And lastly, the recently concluded Miss Cagayan de Oro 2007 had a candidate named "Vahjna". No kidding! Look it up on google. No wonder there was a hissing sound whenever she was called during the talent portion. What are these people's parents thinking?? For god sake, save their soul. If i was a mayor, i would penalize these guys for child abuse. lol

Ive done a research about Funny Names and Weird Names on the Internet and selected few to be posted here.

  • I assure you it's 100% legitimate. The first girl I ever kissed was named Jenny Tull (genital). We also had a Peter Pang and a Chrystal Chandelier in highschool.
  • The mother of little Nosmo King was supposedly inspired by a "No Smoking" sign in the lobby of the hospital where the baby was born.
  • Unlike the other names above, Ima Hogg actually does exist. She was the daughter of a early 20th century Texan politician. She was also a philanthropist. However, nobody has verified variations like Ima Pigg and Ura Hogg.
  • When I was in high school, I heard a girl called over the intercom a couple times - Anita Pee - and I just assumed it was a joke. Nope, there really was an Anita Pee. Cliche, you say? Let me continue. Soon yearbooks were distributed and I discovered Anita has a younger brother named Chris... the kid's name is Chris Pee! Crispy! Hahaha!
  • a family in my neighborhood had the surname Carr. Their son's name? Dusty Carr. I always felt bad for him.
  • My deceased grandmother swore that she knew a Donald Duck, who was born before the cartoon Donald Duck was invented.
  • I actually went to school with a Wendy, Dusty, Misty and Stormy a set of siblings all with the last name Day .

Do you have something in mind? Let me know, post it up on the comments box and ill make another post with your submitted names. Keep an eye out for those Weird Names!

Are you familiar with the program of Discovery Channel that had a portion or segment that was entitled "EyeSpy With my Little Eye?". I was crazy about this segment when I was still young.

In here, i will feature Interesting Pictures, Strange Pics, Weird Images and everything that will stimulate your sense of vision.

For this post, im starting off with something i found over at the internet hopping ages ago. What do you see between the white squares? Are there really gray dots between them?

Strange pics, Weird Images, Interesting pictures

Strange pics, Weird Images, Interesting picturesWhere has the pink circles gone? And why is it that only the rotating green dot is left?

And this one is a weird pic. You see three perfect squares right? Or wrong?. You decide. . .

Now if youre a christian, you should be moved by this pic. I was, when i first saw it. Even until now, i still am amazed by it. If youre not a christian, well, look at it. Maybe you cant relate who he is but still, worth the watch. Look at the four dots inside the pic. After 30 seconds, close your eyes and look at something bright like a lampshade or the sun while your eyes are closed. You should see someone. ;)

Unusual Facts : Which is Faster? A Sneeze or a Cough?

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Have you ever wondered how fast a cough or a sneeze travel? Well, since I was a child, i used to wonder which one is faster, a sneeze or a cough. Im already 19, mature enough i think and i have to free myself from this mystery once and for all so i did a little research which is not that hard nowadays. The verdict? I would be delighted to share this one with you.

A cough travels 60 miles per hour (mph). Wow! thats even faster than my normal city driving. But here's the real deal : On the average, a sneeze travels 100 - 130 miles per hour or mph. I could not believe it at first because it seems like they just travel at the same speed. There you have it ladies and gentlemen, the sneeze won the race fair and square and almost without any competition at all. Well, this one really solves at least 10 years of dilemma that i had.

What do you think? Is there anything you questioned as a child? If so, then let me know. Ill be more than happy to find out for myself. ;)
