Where did I park my car?A runner in last week’s New York Marathon spent two days afterward trying to find his car. Charles Petraske, 34, crossed the finish line in a little over three hours, but then realized he had no idea where he’d parked his black Hyundai Sonata. “I was completely disoriented,” he said. After calling Manhattan parking garages for two days, Petraske remembered a billboard he’d seen while parking and was directed by the billboard’s owners to a garage on 31st Street. “You’d think I would have remembered that,” said Petraske.
al-Qaddafi's haremMuammar al-Qaddafi was “addicted” to Viagra, says the London Daily Mail. Qaddafi’s personal manservant, identified only as “Faisal,” said the late Libyan dictator felt a need to have sex with as many as five women every day—including the members of his notorious all-female bodyguard team. “They all had sex with Qaddafi,” said Faisal. “They would go into his bedroom, he would have his way with them, and then he would come out like he had just blown his nose. They had all become just a habit.”
Panda poo tea, anyone?A Chinese entrepreneur says he plans to use feces from panda bears to make the world’s healthiest and most expensive tea. An Yanshi says he has already collected 5 tons of panda feces for the tea, which he estimates will retail for around $34,000 a pound. Yanshi says the panda’s “excrement is rich in fibers and nutrients,” owing to a diet rich in bamboo and its relatively inefficient digestive system. In tea form, he says, panda poo has more antioxidants than green tea, and “a mature, nutty taste and a very distinctive aroma.”
