Trivial News of the World - Pseudoscience and Crazy People

USA:

Scientists from Michigan Technological University use social media to find possible time travelers.

Quote:
Scientists from Michigan Technological University searched the Internet for time travelers and published their results in the physics pre-publication database arXiv on Dec. 26. They looked specifically for social media posts that seemed to predict the future — mentioning events before they happened.
While they didn't find any, Doctor Who and Back to the Future fans need not worry: the results don't disprove time travel.

City councilman pens resignation letter in Klingon.

Quote:
It takes a special kind of politician to end his term by signing a resignation letter "chaq DaHjaj QaQ jaj paj." That's "maybe today is a good day (to) resign." In Klingon.

David Waddell, a city councilman for Indian Trail, N.C., decided to send his resignation letter to Mayor Michael Alvarez written in Klingon as an inside joke. "Folks don't know what to think of me half the time," Waddell told The Charlotte Observer. "So I might as well have one last laugh."

The politician used the Klingon translator on Bing.com in case the mayor wasn't fluent in the well-known "Star Trek" language. In fact, Waddell didn't just write his resignation using standard Klingon, he chose the beautiful, pointy-looking written Klingon language of pIqaD.

I donated a kidney to my husband then he dumped me - now I want it back

Caring Samantha Lamb saved her husband’s life by giving him one of her kidneys – and after he got better, he dumped her.

The furious mum-of-one also believes Andy cheated after her transplant surgery ordeal, something he denies.

Now she wishes it was possible to take the organ back – and give it to someone more deserving.

Mum-of-one Samantha, 41, told the Sunday People: “I can’t *believe he now has a second chance to live to see his grandchildren grow up.

Paging Dr Haus: German doctor cures mystery illness after recalling a similar diagnosis from Hugh Laurie's curmudgeonly antihero House

House, the prickly doctor-genius with an astonishingly convincing American accent, has earned Hugh Laurie fame in America and plaudits of both sides of the Atlantic. Now, despite the minor disadvantage of being a fictional character, he has also helped save a life.

In a submission to one of the world’s leading medical journals, German doctors report the case of a man who came to hospital suffering from severe heart failure. Medical examinations at the Marburg University clinic ruled out the most likely causes, coronary artery disease. The 55-year-old man also had fever of unknown origin, had gone almost deaf and blind and had an underactive thyroid.

Fortunately for him, the Marburg is unusual among teaching hospitals for offering a lecture entitled: ‘Dr House revisited – or: would we have saved the patient in Marburg as well?’ – led by Dr Juergen R. Schaefer of the hospital’s Centre for Undiagnosed Diseases.
