There's puppy love -- and then there's DOG love. One New Yorker on the Upper East Side loved his dog Astro so much that he had him cloned after he died -- and now the resulting bio-engineered canines are causing havoc.
Cosmo and Retro's master, Gary Rintel, lets them run free without a leash, and they have gotten themselves in quite a bit of mischief.
65-year-old New Zealander Denis Duthie learned the hard way that vodka and diabetes medication doesn't mix -- when he suddenly went blind after downing a couple of glasses.
After trying to sleep the blindness off, he still didn't regain his sight --and then doctors told him the bad news. He most likely received methanol poisoning, which caused formaldehyde to build up in his system and robbed him of his ability to see.
Fur found in a cave in the Kemerovo region of Russia might provide proof that Yetis really exist, The Moscow Times reports. The hairs were discovered during a state-sponsored expedition in a southern Siberian cave -- part of a "Yeti Conference."
Russian cryptozoologist Valentin Sapunov said that DNA testing and an examination under an electron microscope indicated that the fur had a "60 to 70" percent chance of being that of an actual yeti -- also known as "The Abominable Snowman."

The cabbie, who didn't want to be identified, said that the boy asked to be driven from Trenton Central High School to his home, and to wait until he went into the house to get something before driving back to the school. What he got was a silver pistol.
