So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
Is It Necrophilia to Want to Shoot Your Dead Body Inside of Someone?
What happens to our bodies once we shift off this mortal coil is important for some among us. For the rest of us, we can pay Holy Smoke LLC $850 to load our cremated human ash into shotgun shells, rifle and pistol cartridges. I'm actually pretty sure I saw this in a Japanese anime or a Jason Aaron comic, but yeah, whatever, sign me up. I'm all for impaling helpless animals with molten bits of lead and my corpse from beyond the grave. And sometimes so much news passes before our eyes that we post about it twice. But you knew that. Enjoy the second serving of cadaver ammo. [Death and Taxes]
Korea's Army of Super-Clone Airport Sniffer Dogs
What's a militarized peninsula country supposed to do when only three of every ten expensive airport sniffer dogs pass muster? I guess you could clone the most badass dog who's ever sniffed drugs in Korea. Yeah, actually, that's probably best. We've seen these cloned narco-pups before, but they're cute and dogs and clone and Friday. [CNN]
England Paid Scientists to Rank Catchy Pop Songs
And the winner is Queen's "We Are the Champions." I'll totally buy that. I mean, "Lady Bumps" or whatever that song is called is miserably catchy, but I rewound the ending credits of D2: The Mighty Ducks about 500 times as a kid to listen to this, before I ever knew who Queen or Freddie Mercury were. And it's in good company with—hold on, that can't be right. 'Y.M.C.A' by the Village People, Sum 41's 'Fat Lip', Europe's 'The Final Countdown' and The Automatic's 'Monster'? I'm in on Y.M.C.A., but "Final Countdown" is like the third catchiest in the Rocky franchise. And Sum 41. Ugh. Go away, England scientists. [NME]
Left Behind is our daily collection of chaff we didn't think was quite good enough to post on its own, and why.
