THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Women DO judge men on their penis size: “Authors from the Australian National University, Monash and La Trobe provide the most complete answer yet: the size of a flaccid penis can significantly affect how attractive a man’s body is to women. Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (a journal commonly known by its initials as PNAS), Brian Mautz, Bob Wong, Richard Peters and Michael Jennions use a clever experimental manipulation of computer-generated imagery – CGI – to test the effects of variation in penis size relative to height and torso shape (shoulder width relative to waist width) on the attractiveness of male bodies to women. While researchers found that torso shape was by far the most important determinant of attractiveness, penis size has about as much influence on attractiveness as height. It suggests that women favor slightly larger than average penises.”

Japan to launch ‘invisible’ trains to its tracks by 2018: “ALREADY famous for its bullet train, Japan is now set to launch an “invisible” train that will hit the tracks in 2018. Designed by Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima, who is known for making buildings that blend into the environment, the trains will sport a semi-reflective surface to give the illusion of invisibility when speeding through the city or countryside. Sejima was commissioned to design the train by Seibu Group, who are famous for their high-speed bullet trains, to celebrate their 100th anniversary. The brief was to create a “soft” and “gentle” design to “blend in with the landscape”. Sejima will also design the interior to have a “living room” feel. The design will be launched on the current Red Arrow commuter train on a limited number of routes from 2018.

Is this the most mesmerising cat in the world?: “This stunning moggy has become an internet sensation after people were mesmerised by his hypnotic different coloured eyes. The adorable snowy-white cat, called Alos, turns heads with his beautiful fluffy coat and striking blue and green eyes. The charming cat has racked up an impressive 9,500 followers on the social network Instagram, leaving people hypnotised by his distinctive eyes. The pretty kitty lives in Turkey with his owner, Burcu Kaynak, who has had him since he was a kitten. Burcu said: ‘I think my cat is the most beautiful cat in the world – I love him so much. ‘I’ve only seen one cat before with different coloured eyes, so he’s pretty special. ‘There’s nothing wrong with him – he’s not blind or deaf. Just beautiful.’ The beautiful moggy is a van cat, a type of cat found in the Lake Van region of eastern Turkey. It is sometimes called the ‘swimming cat’, because it has been known to swim in Lake Van”

Massive swordfish caught off Tasmania: “More giant swordfish have been tagged off the Tasmanian coast, including one which tipped the scales at 370 kilograms. Several enormous specimens have been sighted and tagged in recent days, including the possible record catch hooked off St Helens in the state’s north east on Tuesday. “It was an absolutely enormous fish,” said big game fish specialist and boat skipper Leo Miller. “It was the biggest known recreationally caught swordfish in Australian history. It was weighed clean at 354 kilos, so it’s probably about a 370 to 380 kilogram fish whole. “I have had inquiries from America, New Zealand, all round Australia and it’s had recent exposure on TV programs,” he said. “It’ll give the state and the fishery a huge boost and a huge bit of exposure. It’s exciting times. Miller said the signs pointed to swordfish staying in the area for a significant amount of time”

Melbourne man fined $30,000 for speeding in a car he sold eight years ago: “A Melbourne man has been left stumped after receiving 11 infringement notices over the past two weeks for driving recklessly in a car he hasn’t owned in eight years. Harry Chojna, 68, has racked up $33,000 in speeding fines for a car registered under a number plate that used to belong to his black Jaguar. Mr Chojna claims he sold the Jaguar to a Toorak dealership in 2008. However, a driver using those same number plates appeared to amass 23 demerit points worth of offences by driving at speeds up to 123km/h in Melbourne’s south east. Mr Chojna then went on to appeal the fine and was able to obtain images that show his old number plate attached to a pink Toyota Yarris while speeding along Melbourne’s east link. Mr Chojna says he feels as though he’s in the middle of a “bureaucratic mess”, and is refusing to pay the fine.
