Bonehead Of The Day

A Canadian teen got a little too close to a lion she was helping care for in a South African rehab facility.

The 18-year-old was volunteering at the center when she leaned in to kiss the beast's fur and he tried to drag her into its cage by the legs.

The girl was pulled into the animal's cage, and her legs were gnawed and gashed by the lion and its mate before she was finally dragged away by another volunteer.

 

The girl was fulfilling her life-long passion for animals by volunteering there before she was supposed to start college in the fall.

McDonalds 5 Most Spectacular Menu Flops

The McRib. The Shamrock Shake. The Big Mac. McDonalds has had some triumphant new produts added to their menu over the years - but not everything has been a success. Here are the five biggest flops from the golden arches.


1. McPizza. In the 80's McDonalds tried to integrate pizza into their menu but the prep process was too slow for those who were used to coming to McDonalds to quickly get in and out with their food.

2. The Hula Burger. A meatless burger with grilled pineapple, cheese and a bun? Sounds genius right? Wrong. This item didn't last long.

3. McLobster. This faux lobster roll in a hot dog bun was introduced on the east coast and didn't take off. I mean, they eat delicious lobster fresh there - why would they want fake McDonalds lobster?

4. McAfrika. This tasteless product was sold in Norway and contained beef and vegetables in a pita. It was released during a famine in South Africa and considered incredibly insensitive.

5. Arch Deluxe. The restaurant chain spent an incredible amount on an ad campaign targeting an older more upscale crowd with this sandwich and it totally flopped.

Life Imitating Art:  Humanity To Begin Testing Weather Terminators Will Tear You To Bits

A new, $1.75 million program has just been launched to discover if robots can turn evil on humans.

The study (funded by the U.K.'s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) is expected to take up to three and a half years to complete.

Researchers across the U.K. will examine how trustworthy robots are — and can be in the future.

As one researcher explains, "Working on this new research project with colleagues across the U.K. will enable us to tackle the crucial issue of developing robotic systems which can work safely with humans.

"This is a vital step in developing robots for a whole range of functions for the future, where they will be useful to humans."
