Monkeys, Humans, and Scorpions! Oh My!
As reported on Yahoo! News, via Reuters, “a Malaysian man shot and killed his wife after he mistook her for a monkey picking fruit in a tree behind their house.” The guy was 70, and his 68 year-old wife had used a ladder to climb the tree to pick some fruit. They had raised thirteen children together prior to this tragedy.
There is good news from Malaysia as well. Nur Malena Hassan, the “Scorpion Queen” has wrestled her world record back from Thailand for spending more than a month in a glass box with 6,000 scorpions:
The 27-year-old moved into the box in a shopping mall in Kuantan, about 250 km (160 miles) east of Kuala Lumpur, on Aug. 21. She has only left the box for a daily 15-minute bathroom break, even though she has been stung several times … she lacks sleep because the scorpions crawl over her body. She has been warned she could pass out if stung three times within a short time.
She is going to further secure her title by spending another three days in the box. I am not sure who is crazier. Yahoo! have a slideshow of the Scorpion Queen, if you’d like to see.
