And that’s before taking into account the accompanying ‘Flatliner Fries’, cooked in pure lard, and a giant soft drink.

2. I love my wife My wife is dead

In June of 1945, Arline Feynman — high-school sweetheart and wife of the hugely influential physicist, Richard Feynman — passed away after succumbing to tuberculosis. She was 25-years-old. 16 months later, in October of 1946, Richard wrote his late wife the following love letter and sealed it in an envelope. It remained unopened until after his death in 1988.

7. Tiny lizards found in Madagascar

One of the world’s tiniest lizards has been discovered by keen-eyed researchers in Madagascar. The miniature chameleon, Brookesia micra, reaches a maximum length of just 29 mm. They mostly live in the leaf litter in the day… But at night they climb up and then you can spot them.

A Canadian guy named Joe has been digging out the basement of his house using nothing but radio-controlled scale model construction equipment… since 1997. Yes, you read that right — he’s been digging out his basement for 15 years — with nothing but little R/C tractors, diggers and even a miniature rock crusher! Amazing…

9. PETA Ad Warns That Going Vegan May Cause You To Be So Good In Bed You’ll Hurt Your Girlfriend

Did you know that becoming a vegan will turn a man into such a s*xual powerhouse that his girlfriend will require a neck brace?

10. 3,117 Coins Stacked on One Dime

Got nerves of steel, thousands of coins, and seven hours to kill? No?
