Would Americans be interested in cloned meat? The advantage would be that they would get the absolute best quality for the money paid. Imagine the most succulent and flavorful piece of stake, being replicated and served to consumers. The FDA gave their approval for milk and meat from cloned animals to be served in the US, but this is far from becoming a reality any time soon.
"The food in every respect is indistinguishable from food from any other animal," FDA Food-Safety Chief Dr. Stephen Sundlof told reporters on Jan. 15. "It is beyond our imagination to even find a theory that would cause the food to be unsafe."
1.6 million Americans in prison and 0.7 million in local jails. That means 1% of the adult population of the United States, which is 230 million. When it comes to ethnic groups, it gets worse. 1 in every 15 black adults is in jail, and the same goes for 1 in every 36 hispanic adults.
While their inhabitants might not be too happy about it, there are a lot of places around the world, with names that are offensive in the English language, but don’t mean a thing in the language spoken in their area.
In recent years, it became quite common for the street signs of these cities and villages to be stolen by tourists that are amused at their meaning.
I’ve seen quite a few lists with funny city names, but after research and looking for proof of their existence, I came up with the list below. Included are only names that I found truly funny and I could found street signs or their presence on a map.
A tiny village from Austria, Fucking has a population of 93 people and apparently they spend quite large sums of money replacing the sign from the entrance of the village, because British tourists made a habit out of stealing them as a souvenir.
The hilarious part of the sign below, is that under the Fucking sign, there is another saying "Please, not so fast". A good match, though they probably had something else in mind. Maybe telling drivers not to speed up in their village.
The flight, belonging to Go! airlines, was on a 214 mile route between Honolulu and Hilo airport in Hawaii, on February 13, 2008. The airplane, which was flying at 21,000 feet, was contacted by the air traffic controllers, and got no response from it, despite several attempts at making contact. Contact was finally made when the airplane already had flown 15 miles past the airport. It finally landed 15 minutes later.
The preliminary report that was just released by the National Transportation Safety Board concludes that apparently the two pilots fell asleep. No problems were found with the carbon monoxide in the plane or the pressurization system.
On that flight, there were 40 passengers and 3 crew members. The two pilots are currently suspended and flight logs show that they finished their shift on February 12 at 2:47 PM and returned to duty at 5:40 AM on February 13.
