• Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar - with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth - survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • Police: Girl, 14, slits teen's throat in hope of 1st kill

    HUDSON, Wis. -  A 14-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl who told police she was a psychopath looking for her first kill is accused of cycling to the home of her brother's girlfriend, beating the girl and slitting her throat. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports that the teenager, of New Richmond, is charged as an adult with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. She is in juvenile custody. A criminal complaint filed Thursday says police found the 15-year-old victim Wednesday morning on her bedroom floor bleeding heavily from the face and neck.

  • What A Wife Says It Was Like To Find Out Her Husband Of 23 Years Had A Girlfriend

    Dave says it kills him to know that he hurt his wife, but he has no regrets about the affair. “She just filled the void in my life that I’ve always wanted and my wife didn’t fill,” he explains. “The sex with a new girl was more than I ever thought could happen in life. It was the greatest.” He admits that he kept both women in his life as he struggled to pick between them. “I was flip-flopping,” says Dave. “I was like Tarzan swinging from one vine to the other.” Turning to Dr. Phil for help, he says, “I do love Stacey. Sometimes, I wonder if we’re hanging on to something that is just hopeless.” Should this couple reconcile or could there be too much distrust and pain to move forward together?

  • How Hillary blew her big moment

    Well, Hillary Clinton took the stage after four days of Democratic triumph - the party staged what was even to these conservative eyes and ears the best, tightest, most interesting convention of our time - and pretty much stunk up the joint. Her speech was a Jell-O mold of a sort my Aunt Millie used to make - blandly gelatinous in flavor and texture with little pieces of boilerplate left-liberal policy suspended in it like peach chunks from a three-week-old can. I can’t think of another one of these events when the presidential candidate’s acceptance address ended up solidly in the running for the more-than-dubious honor of being the worst speech of the convention. I’d quote the bad parts, but

  • If This Is Cara Delevingne's Engagement Ring, She's 1 Very Lucky Girl

    Right after Jared Leto posted a shot of Cara Delevingne on Instagram, in which a sparkly diamond ring was front and center, the engagement speculation began. Worn on the Suicide Squad actress's left hand, and much brighter than your average jewel, it definitely fits the bill. While Cara and her girlfriend St. Vincent have been in a public relationship for over a year, they're not ones to put their relationship in the spotlight. With friends, however, they certainly celebrate their love (as shown by a "Happy Annievercarry!" sign in Taylor Swift's recent snap). Whether the couple will soon share the news of an upcoming wedding is TBD. For now, we'll just reminisce about their coordinated style

  • Every Adaptation Of The Joker, Ranked From Worst To Best

    There’s a good reason that many refer to the Joker as the perfect villain. Colorful, psychotic, layered, wacky and doggedly persistent, the character has been the arch-nemesis of the Batman for decades, serving as the perfect foil to the brooding Bat and a terrifying presence even among DC’s various villains. He’s a guy you want on your side, but even then, there’s a good chance you’re ending up dead with a razor-sharp playing card between your eyes because you got boring. And as one of the most enduring villains of all time, the Joker has made the jump to from comics to TV, TV to film, film to game and probably more in future. So before Jared Leto gives us an entirely new version of the Clown

  • NASA’s new space plane is getting ready to take flight

    NASA’s next cargo delivery vehicle-a spunky little space plane that looks like it could be an offspring of the space shuttle-is getting ready to fly. The svelte and snub nosed Dream Chaser will soon be shipped to the Mojave desert in California where it would begin a series of ground tests that would eventually culminate with a flight from an altitude of 2.5 miles high. To get to this point, however, has been a long road for its manufacturer, the Sierra Nevada Corp. The company had originally pursued a NASA contract to fly astronauts to the International Space Station. But it lost out to SpaceX and Boeing, and so it then turned its attention to another contract-one to fly cargo and supplies to
