He weighs an amazing 4.5 stone and is larger than his older brother. Doctors in Colombia are trying to establish how the lad — who needs giant-size nappies — got so huge. Mum Milena Orosco de Agudelo said he started ballooning at two months. Doctor David Dias of Barranquilla Paediatric Hospital said the boy is having tests to see if he is just obese or has a thyroid problem. The normal weight for an 11-month-old boy is between 13lbs 4oz and 15lbs 7oz.

Rat meat in demand in Cambodia



The price of rat meat has quadrupled in Cambodia this year as inflation has put other meat beyond the reach of poor people, officials said on Wednesday.With consumer price inflation at 37 percent according to the latest central bank estimate, demand has pushed a kilogram of rat meat up to around 5,000 riel ($1.28) from 1,200 riel last year. Officials said rats were fleeing to higher ground from flooded areas of the lower Mekong Delta, making it easier for villagers to catch them.
"Many children are happy making some money from selling the animals to the markets, but they keep some for their family," Ly Marong, an agriculture official, said by telephone from the Koh Thom district on the border with Vietnam.
"Not only are our poor eating it, but there is also demand from Vietnamese living on the border with us."

IceOrb



With this double-purpose container you can make the ice and keep the drinks cool as well. Actually, it’s a combination of 2 containers- one for the ice-balls and the other for containing food or drink. This can prepare 21 ice-cubes at once while the container can store more than 2 batches in it. Just pour the water in the tray and put the container with lid into it. After taking out from the refrigerator, it’s easy to remove the ice-cubes. But don’t take out the ice if you want to serve your drinks cool. A fantastic idea indeed! Price: $16.

The world's most difficult logic puzzle!

The world's most difficult logic puzzle!
Three gods A , B , and C are called, in some order, True, False, and Random. True always speaks truly, False always speaks falsely, but whether Random speaks truly or falsely is a completely random matter. Your task is to determine the identities of A , B , and C by asking three yes-no questions; each question must be put to exactly one god. The gods understand English, but will answer in their own language, in which the words for yes and no are “da” and “ja”, in some order. You do not know which word means which.

elephant that does math-video

videoResearchers at the University of Tokyo have found an Asian elephant named Ashya can add small quantities together and correctly identify which is larger.
For example, when researcher Naoko Irie-Sugimoto dropped three apples into one bucket and one apple into a second, then four more apples into the first and five into the second, Ashya correctly identified that the first bucket contained more apples and began munching on her tasty prize.
Nine times out of 10, she went to the bucket with most fruit - even if it only had one apple more.
Mya Thompson, of Cornell University, said: "Elephants might need to count to make sure every animal is still in a herd.

SEDC lady pregnant with a girl


Tiny Karina, 32, has a rare disorder called Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Congenita — or SEDC.
It’s a type of dwarfism, but instead of having dwarf features, Karina’s body is perfectly in proportion.
Because of her condition, doctors warned it was unlikely she would ever be able to carry a child — she was simply too small to be a mum.
But now happily married to factory worker Paul, 37, she has defied the odds to become the smallest woman with SEDC in the UK to fall pregnant.
