Okay, let’s try to get through this together. A few months ago, a bunch of researchers from London’s King’s College grew a full set of “human/mouse” hybrid teeth using human stem cells from gum tissue and mouse kidneys.

Attend an event at the Barclays Center, and you’re greeted by a luxuriant ambience–top-notch local food, black leather trim everywhere, and a smell like the inside of a brand new Benz.

I’m not saying I didn’t do some questionable things for fun when I was younger, but the trend of kids snorting condoms is a bizarre one indeed. The premise is simple: simply suck the condom up your nostril and pull it out of your mouth. Kids have been doing this for a few years, but it seems […]
