• Angry grizzly bear charges couple twice; what they did possibly saved their lives

    John and Lisa Vandenbos were scouting for fishing spots along the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park on Saturday when they spotted an adult grizzly bear feeding on a partially consumed carcass. The grizzly bear was obviously surprised and was in no mood to share in its bounty, so it immediately charged the couple, coming to within 9 feet, according to Yellowstone National Park spokeswoman Morgan Warthin. Fortunately, the couple from Bozeman, Montana, were prepared and both quickly discharged their bear spray. “The bear initially left,” Warthin wrote. “When attempting to charge the couple again, it ran into the original cloud of bear spray. Upon making contact with the cloud, the bear retreated

  • 10 Truly Disgusting Facts About Life In Ancient Egypt

    Egypt is the land of pyramids and pharaohs, tombs filled with glittering treasures, and powerful men who ruled a country like gods. When we think of ancient Egypt, we think of the wealth and glamour of kings. But we usually leave out the dirty-and disgusting-details. 10 Lice Was So Bad That People Just Gave Up On Hair Most people shaved their heads in ancient Egypt. We know this from pictures and from records written by people in other countries who looked at Egypt’s fashion choices and puzzled over why Egyptians thought going bald was such a good look. Today, though, historians are pretty sure they know why. Lice were everywhere in ancient Egypt. The tombs of Egyptian rulers are infested with

  • Mitt Romney Wonders Why He Stayed Out of 2016 Race

    Mitt Romney today expressed disappointment in the state of the presidential race, joking that he often asks himself why he stayed out of the 2016 bid for the White House. "I get asked on a regular basis, 'Boy, why aren't you running this year?' I ask myself that a lot too. But I did that once," Romney said. He made self-deprecating jokes about his loss to President Barack Obama in 2012, borrowing a line from Democrat Walter Mondale, who lost to Ronald Reagan in the 1984 presidential election: "All my life I wanted to run for president in the worst way and that's what I did." He laughed at how much fun he had running in the 2012 race, encouraging the audience at an event hosted by the U.S. Chamber

  • Sexy & Grey: 13 Women Who Prove That One Does Not Negate the Other

    Sophie Fontanel - Parisian Instagram star, fashion journalist, and author of T he Art of Sleeping Alone - has a thing or two to say about going gray. “Accept yourself and you will see a big change,” she tells Vogue in an Oct. 24 interview focused largely on her decision to stop coloring her hair. Fontanel, who is 54 and has more than 87,000 Instagram followers , takes Vogue readers through her own journey of acceptance that came after what she calls “living a lie” by never letting her roots show. After achieving literary fame in her 50s, she explains, she began noticing beautiful gray-haired women seemingly everywhere she went. She stopped one such woman in Los Angeles. “I was asking, ‘is it easy to be like you are?’ She said, ‘Yes. You know, before I was much more invisible and now I’m really someone strange. Everyone notices me,‘” Fontanel recounts. “Life is full of signs. Two months later I was in Rome. There was a second one. Then I was in St.-Tropez at a café and there was another woman with long white hair, very chic, in Valentino. She was very sexy. I [said], ‘Okay, you’re the third woman I’ve noticed, so tell me, does it take courage to get your hair?’ And she said, ‘No. It takes curiosity.'” The writer was emboldened by these other women, and, after some thought and convincing, decided to let her own locks go natural - but gradually, by growing her roots out slowly, and documenting the transformation on Instagram. Today, she says, she’s “happier than ever.” Check out to above slide show to take in the splendor of Fontanel and a dozen other courageous, curious, and sexy silver-haired women.

  • Supposed 'Burial Slab' Of Jesus Christ Uncovered For First Time In Centuries

    A stone slab that many Christians believe once held the body of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion has been unveiled for the first time in centuries.  National Geographic, which was filming the restoration work at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, said the marble that encased the slab since at least 1555 was removed as part of the project.  “We were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it,” Fredrik Hiebert, archaeologist-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, told the organization’s website. “It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid.” The

  • Dear Abby: Teen skips school, just sleeps & texts

    DEAR ABBY: I’m 18 and a freshman in college. My 16-year-old brother is supposed to be a junior in high school, but he’s still taking freshman classes. He has gone to school maybe twice this year. He just gave up and dropped out. All he does is stay home, sleep and text all day. It makes me angry because I don’t work right now, but I clean, cook, do laundry and take care of my younger siblings while he does absolutely nothing. Mom has given up on him. She begs him to go to school and get an education, but he yells at her and tells her he doesn’t care and he’ll just become a hobo. I don’t know what to say to him to get it through his head that he needs to finish high school. What would you do?
