        'Longest living human' says he is ready for death at 145

        An Indonesian man who claims to be the longest living human in recorded history has described how he “just wants to die”.
        Mbah Gotho, from Sragen in central Java, was born on December 31, 1870, according to the date of birth on his identity card.
        Now officials at the local record office say they have finally been able to confirm that remarkable date as genuine.

              Lightning strike kills 323 reindeer in Norway
              A lightning strike in Norway has killed more than 300 reindeer, according to reports from local media. A spokesman for the Norwegian Nature Inspectorate (NNI) told NTB, the Norwegian News Agency, that 323 reindeer were found dead on Friday in an area near Hardangervidda, in the southern part of the country. In a press release published Sunday, the Norwegian Environment Agency said that 70 of the dead reindeer were calves. Officials believe that the animals were killed by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm, marking what could be the deadliest lightning strike in history.

              "We’ve heard about animals being struck by lightning and killed, but I don’t remember hearing about lightning killing animals on this scale before," NNI spokesman Knut Nylend tells NTB. "We don’t know if it was one or more lighting strike; that would only be speculation."

                The photos of the dead 323 reindeer are stunning. what a waste of meat, hides and antler. too bad. I have had a hide/fur of a reindeer before, very nice hide.

                  Outside of humans and one species of armadillo, identical twins seem to be vanishingly rare. Now for the first time a dog has given birth to a pair

                    A genetic study of Tasmanian devils has uncovered signs that the animals are rapidly evolving to defend themselves against an infectious face cancer.

                      This dolphin has invented a way to overcome a disability

                      It should not be able to breathe because its blowhole is blocked, but it has devised a way around the problem
