Founder of Breast Implant Firm Guilty of Fraud

Founder of Breast Implant Firm Guilty of Fraud:  The founder of a French company that used an unapproved gel in its breast implants has been found guilty of fraud.  Of course I suppose one could make the argument that anyone associated with breast implants is guilty of fraud on some level. 

Mandela Memorial Interpreter Fake:  According to the director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa, the sign language interpreter at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela who worked alongside world leaders including President Obama, was a total fake.  South African officials say they became suspicious after it became obvious that the interpreter was actually signaling for runners to steal third base should the pitcher throw a slider or a change-up.


New Research Finds Crocodiles and Alligators Use Tools:  New research finds that crocodiles and alligators are smarter than most people give them credit, pointing out that they’ve been known to use sticks as a tool to lure prey to them.  Hell, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that gators are smart.  After all, they did invent Gatorade didn’t they?  Look how much money that’s made over the years.
