Catching up on the news.

If you like wine, maybe you'll like porn-star wine. Natalie Oliveros, well-known in the porn industry as Savanna Samson, had some respected winemakers put together a wine to market under her own label. The result? A wine called "Sogno Uno" that received a score of 91/100 by wine guru Robert Parker. So there you go: you now no longer have to feel bad about buying a wine bottle with a naked chick on the front of it. You can blame it on your refined palate.



In other naked news, a man in Oklahoma was arrested when his three-year-old son wandered out of an unlocked car... into the strip club he was patronizing at the time. Christopher Greg Killion had told his kid to stay in the car; otherwise, "monsters would eat him". The kid waited in the car about 30 minutes before venturing out into the rain and then into the strip club.

This is probably not going to get Chris a mug with "World's Best Dad" printed on it.

A woman in Russia survived a fall from the 11th floor of her building. She was helped by a thick covering of snow on the ground, and the fact that she was "not fully conscious" at the time of impact. So there you go, kids: if you find yourself falling out of a building, try to make it snow, and then try to pass out on the way down.

Coincidentally, the day before, a cat survived an 80-foot fall from a tree, after being trapped there for eight days. As rescuers attempted to save the cat, a tree limb broke, sending the cat tumbling down. But the cat managed to land without any injury. So there's another hint for those of you falling great distances: try to turn yourself into a cat.

Finally, in today's bacon news, geneticists are attempting to engineer pigs that will produce bacon with omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are found in fish and are believed to help reduce the risk of heart disease. I think they're onto something here... I will eat anything so long as it comes in bacon form.

"geneticists are attempting to engineer pigs that will produce bacon with omega-3 fatty acids. "

What could possibly go wrong?
