Scientists are baffled by twin cats, Merry and Pippin, who reportedly always sleep in an exact mirror image of one another.
“Even if we place them in disparate starting positions or in separate rooms, they somehow always wind up sleeping exactly like the other,” said leading cat biologist and feline sleep expert Dr. Tobias Winslow. ”I’ve never seen anything like it.”
A polysomnogram revealed nothing out of the ordinary about the cats’ brain functions, eye movements, muscle activity, breathing or heart rhythms. ”We had expected to find that Merry and Pip were synched up on an internal level,” explained Winslow, “but it is literally just in the way they position their bodies for slumber.”
More tests will be done later this month during a scheduled comprehensive sleep study.
I need to get this off my chest because I don’t have the guts to tell anyone what I did. I’m a 24 year old identical twin, my sister and I have been blessed with what god gave us in life, including looks. Since our freshman year at SDSU my sister has been with the same guy who is her fiance now and they were set to get married in two weeks… but that will not be happening due to my actions. I’ve never had good luck in relationships, I always end up getting used, abused and cheated on, all the while my sister met the most amazing man at such a young age. Three weeks ago we were all at my grandmothers property in La Jolla and who knows how many bottles of wine were drank, it was a long fun night with the family. My sister’s fiance went and passed out upstairs, while my sister and I continued drinking… she ended up getting really sick, I took her to the bathroom and she threw up so I took her clothes off and put her in the shower… after I put her to bed as I was about to put her clothes away… I did the worst thing possible… I put her clothes on, put my hair in a bun like hers, put on her make up and went into her fiances room… I wanted to catch him off guard so I started giving him oral while he was passed out, of course he woke up two min later and we started getting it on… lasted about an hour and I’ll never forget after the sex we were cuddling and he told me that was the best sex we have ever had and he is so excited to spend the rest of our lives together. He passed out and I snuck back into my room and put the clothes away and cleaned up… When I woke up I couldn’t live with myself, but I couldn’t say anything either. Here is where the story gets bad… I ended up giving him chlamydia, and he gave it to her… and she doesn’t believe him that he didn’t cheat on her… I know he didn’t because I’m the one he got it from… I f*cked up and I cannot confront my sister. I’m hoping by writing this on your website she will see it and understand that I’m SO SORRY and that I love her so much. Pickles I know you will probably never talk to me again, but I was drunk and lonely. I wasn’t thinking… and I’m crying right now because I know I f*cked up.
In what has to be the feel good story of the week, Nazi rock duo Lamb and Lynx Gaede (“Prussian Blue”) who you may remember for causing a media shitstorm a few years ago for presenting themselves as the cuddly faces of white supremacy have made a political, social and cultural full scale about turm. If that makes you smile then the story behind the change in heart will have you checking my facts in disbelief faster than you can say “toke up”. The girls put down their dark past to being “home schooled.. country bumpkins” heavily influenced by an overbearing white supremacist mother. Since then the pair have moved to Montana to go to highschool where in her first year Lynx was diagnosed with both cancer which led to the removal of a tumour and cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS). Lamb developed “scoliosis and chronic back pain, as well as lack of appetite and intense emotional stress”. It perhaps doesn’t take an expert to see a link between the intense emotional stress and some of the medical conditions that were troubling both of the girls. Lamb and Lynx began to use cannabis to self-medicate after Lynx had a negative reaction to the Oxycontin and Morphine she was prescribed to treat her pain. “I have to say, marijuana saved my life,” Lynx now says, “I would probably be dead if I didn’t have it”. Lynx became one of the first five minors in Montana to be issued a medical marijuana card and Lamb now has one too.
Miraculously, the cannabis didn’t just cure the pain but also rekindled both their artistic flair and their passions in a far more positive light..
Lamb: “I’m not a white nationalist anymore.. my sister and I are pretty liberal now”
Lynx: “Personally, I love diversity.. I’m stoked that we have so many different cultures. I think it’s amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people.. we just want to come from a place of love and light”
Lamb: “I think we’re meant to do something more — we’re healers. We just want to exert the most love and positivity we can.”
The pair now spend their time painting, repairing furniture and intend to enrol in college and dedicate themselves to the legalisation of cannabis in all 50 states.
