Eat your words! This toaster by Sasha Tseng incorporates a little message board where one can write quick notes. The message also gets “toasted” into the toast itself. See Sasha’s website of wonderful projects here.
Fisherman Valery from Russia’s Southern Urals was catching fish in a small lake about 40 kilometers far from the city of Chelyabinsk. The man was fishing sitting in his boat. It was a very quiet morning, and the man was very sleepy. All of a sudden, he saw a fish net in the bulrushes.
Valery decided to pull the net out of the water. There was several dead fish in it, but one of them, which was quite large in size, was alive. The shape of its body and head was very unusual. The man tried to get the fish out of the net, but was horrified to see that the fish had a row of white strong teeth in its mouth. The teeth of the fish bore a striking resemblance to those of a human being.
The man left his catch on the lakeside and hurried to return home. He came back the next day – the fish was dead. He decided to bring the fish home and show it to his friends.
The fisherman placed the weird fish under a thick layer of salt to dry the creature out.
“I hope it will attract scientists’ attention before it finally decomposes,” he said.
Local ichthyologists said that it was most likely a bigmouth buffalo, also known as Ictiobus. This species used to be cultivated in the region during the 1980s. However, when specialists saw pictures of the fish, they could only shrug their shoulders.
A similar fish with human-like teeth was caught not so long ago in Texas. The catch weighed 6.5 kilos. Scientists said that it was a pacu, a piranha, which normally inhabits South America.
Russian ichthyologists believe that the caught fish does not represent a mutation. Such a mutation would take hundreds of years. However, they have no other explanation for this strange phenomenon.
Do not upset U.S. teenager Calvino Inman too much - or he may see red. Doctors have been left baffled by the 15-year-old Tennessee teenager, who cries tears of blood.
They come three times a day, often with warning, and can last for up to an hour - leading some classmates to fear he is possessed.
Calvino and his mother have now appeared on national TV new programmes in the hope that exposure with bring an explanation to the stigmata-like medical mystery.
He said: 'Sometimes, I can feel it coming up, like a tear. I feel my eyes watering.
'Sometimes, it will burn as it comes out.'
Pictures and video show red teardrops rolling down his cheeks and leaving a bloody trail as his eyes brim with more blood.
Calvino added: 'I've been called possessed by almost all of my friends.
'I guess I'm used to it now. At first, it kind of hurt my feelings.'
The first time the tears came, Calvino's terrified mother Tammy called emergency services.
She said: 'The scariest thing in my life is when he looked at me and said: "Mum, am I going to die?"
'That right there broke my heart.'
Appeal: Calvino and his mother Tammy are hoping doctors can provide them with a proper explanation for the freaky tears
So far, Tammy has taken Calvino for an MRI, ultrasounds, a CAT scan and to see several specialists. But as yet, none has been able to explain the medical mystery.
Ophthalmologist Dr Rex Hamilton said Calvino could be suffering from a rare condition known as haemolacria, which means 'bloody tears'.
'That is just a descriptive term of the manifestation of the bloody tears,' Hamilton told television show Good Morning America.
'It says nothing about what's causing that. It's a one-in-a-million kind of condition.'
Meanwhile Ms Mynatt said she hoped the television exposure would lead to a cure - or an explanation, at least.
She said: 'More than anything, I just truly want somebody to say they've seen this.
'I just please want somebody to help my baby. That's all.'
Cases where people bleed through their eyes or their skin are uncommon but not unheard of.
Last year the Mail reported on Twinkle Dwivedi, 13, who has a disorder which means she loses blood through her skin without being cut or scratched.
The teenager has to undergo transfusions after pints of it seeped through her eyes, nose, hairline, neck and the soles of her feet and sometimes her condition is so bad she wakes up with her entire body covered in dried blood.
Medics in India believe the youngster's condition is an extreme version of a rare blood platelet disorder for which they cannot find a cure.
Her condition meant her blood is dangerously low in clotting particles, which makes her blood watery.
In fiction, the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale features creepy villain Le Chiffre, played by actor Mads Mikkelsen, who has a bleeding tear duct.

Blood apparently wells up in the teenager's eyes as a TV news film crew record the phenomenon
The long eared jerboa is a nocturnal mouse-like rodent found in the deserts of China and Mongolia. It has a long tail, long legs and extremely large ears. Being such a rare creature, it is in danger of extinction
These little Pikachu dudes, called “モモンガ” (Momonga) were obviously meticulously crafted in the Secret Mt. Fuji Lab of Japanese Cuteness.
They’re also known as Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrel and live in tree holes in forests in Japan. They’re nocturnal, and eat seeds, fruit, tree leaves, buds, bark AND KITTENS (just kidding.)
