This article is nuts!

Testicle-eating fish caught by stunned fisherman in New Jersey
Metro UK (article expert) - September 25, 2013

The South American freshwater fish, commonly found in the Amazon, was hooked by shocked fisherman Tom Boylan just 15 miles outside of New York City on Saturday.

Nicknamed the ‘ball-cutter’, the pacu has a reputation for chomping on testicles, often mistaking them for tree nuts.

‘They bite because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth,’ said one expert.

Hulu rant

I signed up for a free trial of Hulu Plus in order to watch some reruns of Parks and Recreation. I was excited to check out the service until I fired up an episode and a bunch of commercials came on. The ads played throughout each episode and were impossible to skip! What kind of site are they running over there? I'm not paying to watch commercials and apparently I'm not the only one. Check out the number one "most popular" help question on their site.

Horrible/Awesome (but mostly horrible)

The human brewery: Texas man brews beer in his belly
Metro UK - September 21, 2013

A tee-total Texan has given a new meaning to the term ‘beer belly’ after being diagnosed with a rare medical condition that gets him drunk without touching a drop.

The 61-year-old suffers from auto-brewery syndrome, an unusual yeast infection that mimics the signs of intoxication.

His wife feared he was a secret alcoholic as he would often wake up drunk and would suddenly appear sloshed at church or at work.

He arrived at hospital five times over the legal driving limit complaining of dizziness before doctors eventually worked out his condition.

‘He would get drunk out of the blue,’ explained Barbara Cordell, the dean of nursing at Panola College in Texas.

‘On a Sunday morning after being at church, or really, just anytime - his wife was so dismayed about it that she even bought a breathalyse.’

An overabundance of yeast from foods such bread or pasta turned the patient’s stomach into a brewery, meaning he was unable to stay sober, the International Journal of Clinical Medicine reported.
