One New Hampshire family is serious about the stars. So serious that a recent argument led to a father getting stabbed in the chest over which constellations he and his daughter were gazing at in the night sky.
Police got a call around midnight (which is typically still one or two hours before optimal stargazing time) about a stabbing. When arriving to the house, 49 year old Robert Svenson was laying on the floor with a stab wound in the chest.
Researchers at Montreal’s McGill University are at it again with their scientific mousecapades. Recently, scientists at McGill gave us the news that fatherless mice turn into a-holes.
Now, researchers are thinking more with their stomachs and reinforcing the notion that dudes planning on having kids should be careful when trying to conceive, as their vitamin B9 “folate” levels have an effect on their sperm. And not the deliciousness factor of the sperm, mind you.
Not that we’re saying it’s delicious. Not that we’re saying that we’re not.
So today, the internet’s ablaze from one dad’s video of his son’s “football trainin'” – making the young boy run next to his truck as he curses at him.
Among dads, the sentiment seems to be that this guy’s despicable and makes good dads look better. But looking at comments on Reddit and WorldStarHipHop, commenters range from horror to hilarity. “Come on people,” said one Reddit user. “This isn’t bad parenting, it’s a guy messing around with his kid, having him run for what… a tenth of a mile at the most? If you think that’s bad parenting you must have had a pretty sheltered childhood.”
In what will be considered as the opening shots in the war against fatherlessness in mice, Montreal’s McGill University just blew the ink dry on a study that concluded that mice that grow up without dads end up being more aggressive than those growing up in monogamous and biparented homes.
The researchers, including McGill University’s own Gabriella Gobbi, Francis R. Bambico, Baptiste Lacoste, Patrick R. Hattan, used mice from California. Evidently, the “best coast” offers warm temperatures, diverse street cultures laid-back attitudes, and mice that display “monogamous bonding and biparental care”.
Not all of the mice though. Some of them grow up without dads. And those mice, dear readers, turn out dickish.
