The British Military Killed Princess Dianna?

It has been 16 years since Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris. The crash was blamed on over zealous paparazzi chasing her and her boyfriend through the streets of France as they tried to grab a photo of the couple. Now a fresh conspiracy theory alleges that a British Special Forces sniper was behind the deaths.  The former parent in-laws of the sniper’s ex wife claim that he boasted to them that he and the elite British Air Service commando unit killed Princess Dianna. Seems pretty “legitimate” right? The London police seem to think so and are looking into the claims. No word on the sniper’s thoughts on the whereabouts of Elvis and Tupac.

While vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard on Saturday President Obama hit the links with an unlikely golfing partner, comedian Larry David. The presidents golfing companions also included an owner of the Boston Celtics and film maker Peter Farrelly who played for five hours with the duffer in chief. No word on what the Seinfeld co-creator and the leader of the free world talked about out on the golf course. We’d like to imagine that the theme music to “Curb Your Enthusiasm” played as Larry hit a drive right into the president’s “nuclear football” briefcase and it started to beep ominously.

This weekend thousands of natural redheads gathered in Portland, Oregon to try and break the Guinness World Record for most redheads assembled in one place. An unofficial estimate for the “Portland Redhead Event” puts the number of redheads in attendance between 1,300 and 1,600. The previous Guinness World Record was set only last year when 1,255 redheads gathered in Breda, Netherlands. This may seem like an odd record to try and break, but considering only about six percent of the population has red hair, it’s actually bit of an achievement. Organizers were sure to bring lots and lots of sunscreen.

Gabby Williams is eight years old however is still the size of a baby. The girl was born with a rare condition that causes her to age at an incredibly slow rate. While scientists and doctors don’t know why this condition occurs, they feel that it may help them better understand the aging process and possibly lead to cures for diseases such as Alzheimer’s. She is one of only several people in the world who have this little understood condition. Even more intriguing scientists claim that discoveries made from the condition could one day lead to “turning off” the aging process; in other words you could live until you’re 21 and then decide to stop aging. Humans could be young and beautiful forever.

This weekend was Seattle hosted the 22nd annual “Hempfest” – which celebrates all things marijuana. This year was a special year for Hempfest as last November Washington state voters passed law  I – 502 which – sort of makes smoking weed legal in the state, with lots of restrictions. The Seattle Police department thought that Hempfest would be a good opportunity to remind festival goers of those restrictions in a way that might strike a chord with their intended audience: using bags of munchies! The cops handed out bags of Doritos to would be pot smokers with a sticker on the back explaining “Don’t drive while high. Don’t give, sell or shotgun weed to people under 21. Don’t use pot in public. You could be cited but we’d rather give you a warning.”
