A leaping stingray stabbed an 81-year-old Florida boater in the chest, authorities said Wednesday, leaving its poisonous stinger lodged close to his heart in an incident recalling the one that killed Australian TV naturalist Steve Irwin last month.
Fire Department officials in Lighthouse Point, about 30 miles north of Miami, said James Bertakis was in a small recreational boat with two grandchildren Tuesday when the spotted eagle ray leaped aboard and struck him.
“It’s just a real freak thing,” Lt. Mike Sullivan told Reuters, saying the incident occurred on Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, where stingrays are rarely seen leaping in the air.

The folks over at PETA are at it again. This time they’ve taken aim at the mothers who feed their children dairy milk, reminding us that the breast is best - if it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for your child … and you for that matter.

GPS isn’t just for your car anymore. RoamEO is introducing a new location tracking system for your pets. Using a GPS enabled collar coupled with a handheld device, you will now be able track the movement of your pet and determine its exact location. Of course, there are limitations. The device can only track up to three pets at a time, and in ideal settings the device only works within a one-mile radius. However, you are able to create a virtual fence which will alert you should your pet travel beyond a certain perimeter, and let’s be honest, how many people will let their beloved pet roam more than a mile from them?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few days, you have probably already heard that Steve Irwin, better known as the Crocodile Hunter, was fatally wounded by a stingray while diving off of Port Douglas in Northern Queensland on Sunday. Steve was filming a new documentary titled, Ocean’s Deadliest at the time of the unprovoked attack. Police have already reviewed the footage and concluded that, There is no evidence that Mr. Irwin was intimidating or threatening the stingray, unfortunately Steve just happened to be at the wrong postion at the wrong time. The 44-year-old, who was outspoken in wildlife conservation and preservation, and probably inspired many people to follow a career in conservation, is survived by his wife Terri and two children, Bindi and Bob.

Actually, the fastest draw on the planet. Billy the Kid couldn’t hold a pistol to this little guy. With the same high-speed photography equipment used to capture bullets and other fast moving objects, an American research team has been able to accurately capture the lightning fast jaw reflex of the Trap-jaw ant. With its jaw capable of moving at more than 66 MPH, this ant holds the fastest recorded speed at which an animal can move its body parts.

PETA recently held an event they named Running of the Nudes in protest to the yearly Running of the Bulls (and bullfighting in general) held in Spain. Showing their risque side, Wonkette posted an open call for pictures and their readers delivered, sort of. Sorry people, no hotties, but if you want to see semi-nude (I thought it was called Running of the Nudes) folks protesting, click here (NSFW) and here (NSFW).

In a new bid to lure you away from meat, PETA is celebrating National Orgasm Day, and is reminding everyone that red meat clogs the arteries and leads to a less pleasurable orgasm. Straight from Pamela Anderson’s lips — of course who knows where they’ve been.
“It’s coming! National Orgasm Day, a spring holiday long celebrated in Brazil, is finally hitting America. To celebrate, my friends at PETA and I would like to share this amazing video short with you. Everyone is looking for that magic bedroom pill. In China they eat ground up seal penises and in the States many are hooked on Viagra. When you consider that meat clogs arteries going not just to your heart but other vital organs, the best sex tip might just be to go veggie. Check out www.GoVeg.com for more info, and happy spring everybody!
Of course to that we must respond with the Manthem.

And while we’re on the topic of PETA … again … Kristin Cavallari has become the latest spokesperson for PETA. Wait, who the hell is Kristin Cavallari???
Fans of MTV’s hit reality show Laguna Beach may have gotten the wrong idea about Kristin Cavallari. Sure, she likes to party and have fun—who doesn’t? And yes, she’s sometimes surrounded by more drama than an angsty teen creates on MySpace.com, but who among us isn’t?
I just had to ask … but for those non-loyal fans of Laguna Beach, here’s a visual representation of the quickly rising sex bomb.
