REPORT: Dog with 2 ‘mouths’ finds permanent home: ‘It’s something from a science fiction movie’

This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM: A unique dog with two “mouths” in Oklahoma has found a forever home, thanks to the owner of a local animal shelter. Toad, a five-year-old mutt and once a stray in Oklahoma City, has a second “mouth” on the side of her head where an ear would normally be. The odd deformity features teeth and salivates, local news station KFOR reported. Heather Hernandez, the owner of Mutt Misfits Animal Rescue Society, which took Toad in, adopted the pup for herself because the dog’s bond with her and her family “was just so immediate,”...

REPORT: Toasters may expose people to more air pollution than a busy intersection, study claims

This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM: What has the greatest influence on air pollution since sliced bread? Toast.

The most dangerous of these is toasters, which immediately send toxic particles into the air once they’re turned on, researcher Marina Vance told the Times. Burnt toast is particularly harmful.

REPORT: This Is the Longest Train Ride in the World

This is what I found on RD.COM: Though there’s no shortage of luxurious train rides with breathtaking views, taking the train still isn’t exactly the most romanticized way to travel. Usually, at least in the United States, it’s a quick way to get from one place to another. You avoid the hassle (and the price) of flying, not to mention it’s far more convenient for relatively short trips. But if you were to travel the longest continuous railway in the world, without disembarking, you would be on the train for the better part of a week! Find out the...

REPORT: Rat lying next to empty Hennessy bottle goes viral

This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM: New York has become known for its strange rodent encounters in recent years. First there was pizza rat, a determined vermin captured on video dragging a slice three times its size down the steps of a subway station in Manhattan. Then there was milkshake squirrel, shown inside a city trash can clinging to a discarded Shake Shack shake. Now the latest NYC critter to go viral is Hennessy rat. A photo shows the likely dead (or passed out) rat lying on the sidewalk next to an empty bottle of the cognac somewhere in...
