Man Gives Birth To Baby

Craziest Obituary Ever!
Obit Section: A Nevada's newspaper's website recently published a hard hitting obituary from Marianne Johnson's children. She recently died at age 77.
The obit read: “She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit. On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children. Her surviving children will now live the rest of their lives with the peace of knowing their nightmare finally has some form of closure."

Getting Fired For Possibility Of Getting Pregnant? Really?
A German company recently fired a woman because there was a chance she was going to get pregnant. The woman sued and won $15,000. The employer sent a memo that read: "For a woman of your age, it is 'normal' to become pregnant and have children. We celebrate every new person in the world, but must take consideration of our business concerns. We would be happy to embark upon the 're-establishment' of our business in Dusseldorf - but that will obviously not work if you are absent in 2012 due to a pregnancy."
Music = Better Grades
Top 40 and classical music can help students score better on exams. Clinical psychologist Dr Emma Gray played music for students and found classical music, or songs with 50 to 80 beats per minute, allowed the brain to learn and improved memory. Pop music produced a heightened state of excitement and enhanced performance in English, Drama and Art. Classical music lovers scored better in math.
Gray tells the Daily Mail, ''Music has a positive effect on the mind and listening to the right type of music can actually improve studying and learning. Music can put you in a better frame of mind to learn - and indeed, students who listen to music can actually do better than those who don’t. For logical subjects, like Maths, music should calm the mind and help concentration, whereas for creative subjects, the music should reflect the emotion that the student is trying to express.''
