Mermaids may be Halaal

The Koran or some of its promoters discussed mermaids at some point, therefore they are/were presumed to exist.

The robot company website says nothing about the robot being able to burn dead bodies for fuel, so Fox seems to have twisted the idea of using "organic material" to add their own horrific twist to the article, but it sounded like something ...

Moray Eels have a second "alien" jaw

I saw in the March National Geographic a brief article explaining that moray eels have a second jaw in their throat that extends forward into its mouth kind of like the monsters in the "Alien" movies. The main jaws catch prey and the secondary jaws help draw the catch down their throat. http://www.r...
