‘American Idol’ mocks woman who says God told her to audition

OK, so Anastacia Freeman might not be the greatest singer (and we’re saying this knowing that Nicki Minaj is sitting in the same room), but there’s no reason to ridicule her inspiration for trying out for “American Idol.” “I believe God told me to come up here an audition,” she told judge Randy Jackson. Minaj thought that was “weird,” but the comment was enough for the producers to shoot a “cheap dramatization” featuring a heavenly light, clouds of smoke and a choir of angels, prior to host Ryan Seacrest narrating her exit: a bitter end “as she heads home to await further instruction.”

American idol is so dumb they mocked this girl she said she heard god tell her to audition and they made a “cheap dramatization” of +

We know that “American Idol” is all about being judged, but a few were a little more lenient than most.

American Idol must be desperate. Creepy God lady was so planned. Reenactment “footage” & everything was just ridiculous #idolauditions

This girl on American idol says god told her to audition and everybody laughs. Why isn’t it funny when other people say god talks to them?

— Jarrett Rummel (@FSMJarrett) February 1, 2013

Well she did make it to American Idol like God told her too. Not sure if He wanted the judges to say yes…that is something I can’t answer.

They Wanted To Know What Made A Rattlesnake Rattle, So They Cut It Open

Rattlesnakes are considered some of the most sophisticated creatures in the world, and they have the tails to prove it.

Scientists believe these defense mechanisms to be highly sophisticated warning signals, which makes rattlesnakes uniquely terrifying. It’s a one-of-a-kind trait that not many people understand, so let’s take a closer look at what’s really going on when these serpents defend themselves.

The noises that they generate ward off predators. Their tails rattle about 50 times per second, and they can keep that up for hours on end if necessary.

The rattles are made of keratin, and every time snakes molt, their tails get a bit longer. When rattlesnakes travel, they keep their tails up to avoid damaging them, since they rely on those noisemakers for survival.

The guys in this video wanted to learn more, so they went ahead and cut a rattlesnake’s tail open.

And there you have it, folks. It’s never a bad idea to learn about creatures that pose a threat to humans. You never know when you’ll hear that telltale rattle.

Animal Rescues Are Always Great. But This One Has a Surprise No One Saw Coming.

It all started back in September when a farm sanctuary  in Australia called Edgar’s Mission rescued 3 runaway pigs. While heroic in itself, there ended up being a surprise no one saw coming. And it’ll melt your heart.

The 3 pigs were named Wonder Woman, Captain Courageous, and Super Girl. Wonder Woman started putting on weight faster than the others because…

…she was pregnant! With 8 adorable little piglets.

On December 6th, she gave birth to all these cuties. All of them completely healthy.

Edgar’s Mission had no idea they were actually rescuing 11 lives, not 3.

Wonder Woman is doing well, too.

What’s even cuter are the names they gave the little ones.

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer…

Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.

Cute.

SO CUTE.

WAY TOO CUTE.

Compassion toward animals is a beautiful thing. And sometimes, not only do you save one life…but a whole bunch of others. You can follow their progress and see more on the Edgar’s Mission Web Site. Spread this rescue with your friends by sharing it on Facebook or Twitter.

What Did Scientists Do Before Cameras? They Drew Their Specimens Of Course.

Scientists didn’t always have fancy cameras. Capturing an image of their specimens or experiments used to be a huge ordeal. Before the modern era, scientists were also artists. They illustrated what they saw in the wild or in the laboratory. 

Most scientists nowadays are probably happy they don’t need to double major in art. It is fascinating though to imagine a scientist working for hours and hours on pictures for their next book or publication. Here are a few of our favorite old school science drawings. 

Animal species through time. From Popular Science Monthly, September 1905.

Moths from the early 1900’s.

Some mushrooms from 1855.

Majestic falcon from a book documenting the birds of Germany.

Watch out! From the mid 1700’s.

Illustration from a turn of the century encyclopedia.

I do not want to step on these mushrooms. From 1895.

The principle lymph vessels, 1969.

Before space photography.

A subtle bit of nature from 1925.

Whoa. From 1849.

From a book about the history of cranes, 1881.

Beautiful illustration from 1921.

Diagram from the early 1800’s.

Frogs in the South Pacific, 1923.

Reptile blood vessels, 1869.

More mushrooms because why not. From 1822.

Sketches of animal history from the early 1800’s.

Beautiful illustration from 1921.

Beautiful, and informative. Not only were these scientists brilliant thinkers, they were talented artists. Don’t forget to share this story on Facebook by clicking below.

‘Daily dose of international humiliation’: Maddening report on Obama’s dealings with North Korea before nuke test

A new report by the Wall Street Journal indicates the Obama administration discussed peace with North Korea just days before its latest test of a nuclear weapon.

The mind-numbing foreign policy decisions of this administration not only never cease, they get continually more dangerous.

That is sure to be the next move of diplomacy.

Simplyinfuriating.
