A French tourist suddenly fell pregnant on her holiday in Australia. On her way back to France she lost her phone with all her numbers and of course with the number of the future baby daddy. Natalie Amyot has now posted a YouTube video asking the world to help her find the blond man she met on her last night in Down Under.
Miss Amyot describes the man as 180cm tall, with blue eyes and blond hair, along with a tan. If you know anything about the Sunshine Coast, then it is that most Aussie guys look like that. Does the guy even want to be found? Now that is the question. However, it has turned out that the whole story was a scam created by the Australian Holiday Mooloolaba Real Estate agency to attract clients for the Australian Real Estate market.
Daniel Schobloch, a German inventor has designed an acrylic lock to keep jars of chocolate such as Nutella safe from chocolate thieves. The unusual gadget, which started as a joke invention, turned out to be a hit on eBay after Schobloch unexpectedly sold a thousand units.
Schobloch thought of the idea when one of his friends always got worked up when his kids stole his Nutella. The device is currently on sale for €9.99 (£7.20) on eBay Germany. The lock, which comes with two keys, should not be considered as a proper security device however as acrylic is easy to break into. Image Source: Screenshot/eBay/2015

87-year-old Liang Xiuzhen from Ziyang City, in south-west China’s Sichuan Province, has a 13cm-long horn growing from her forehead. The elderly woman started growing something that resembled a “black mole” on her head around eight years ago, according to her son Wang Chaojun.
The mole gave way to a small horn-like mass the size of a little finger. Xiuzhen accidentally “broke” the small horn and in its place her current horn began to grow over the past six months. The unusual growth has stunned doctors, but it was soon identified as “cornu cutaneum” (cutaneous horn), a keratinous skin tumor that has the appearance of a horn.
Doctors believe they can remove the growth through surgery, although the family has its reservations due to Xiuzhen’s old age. Image Source: Screenshot/CEN/2015
