A study by Gert Heilbrunn published in a 1975 issue of looked at a 27-year-old man's obsession with belly buttons, specifically "protruding navels". The high school teacher was so fascinated with "outies" that he tried on two occasions to fashion his very own "outie", once with a razor blade (from which he almost bled to death) and again with a threaded needle. According to the report, the man felt no pain during the latter procedure "until his ecstasy had waned through the ensuing masturbatory orgasm". Lovely.

Many a times are we inspired to do what the people we are looking up to do. In this context, I am talking about parents, guardians, relatives or friends.

Describing me as a prodigal child will be a little harsh but anyway, I will still use the adjective. The fact that I was born and raised in a business environment with business parents did not confine my mind to wanting to be a business person.

Outsider Rule the World stole the headlines with a stunning win in this year's Grand National, but the meeting at Aintree was overshadowed by the deaths of five more entrants. More than 45 horses have died at the course since 2000. Two of this year's casualties, Gullinbursti and Minella Reception, suffered neck injuries and were put down while the other three, Clonbanan Lad, Marasonnien and Kings Palace, died after being pulled up. It is thought they had suffered leg injuries. Seven horses also died at last month's Cheltenham Festival. The continued deaths have prompted more protests against the sport. But why is a broken leg so often a death sentence for a horse? There can be no real comparison between a broken leg for a human and a broken leg for a horse because their bones are so

Basically, every time a cell undergoes mitosis (one kind of cell division), various enzymes work to split each DNA strand in half, and then replace the missing half on the separated strands with corresponding nucleotides, leaving you with two identical strands. When the entirety of a cell's genome is copied (along with all the organelles), the cell can split into two daughter cells. Imagine slicing yourself down the middle and splitting yourself in half, and then using each half of you as a template to recreate the other half. ...
That s when Justin s letters began finding me with increasing regularity. In the months before the trial, Justin had a lot of time to think. And he often thought of me. We wrote about books and family and mutual friends. I d tell him about quitting Subway after only a few weeks, and then I d describe my nights working at the next job, front desk clerk at a hotel and casino. He d describe a fight he d witnessed and poker games with his new cellmate. Time wore on, and the letters became more intimate.
