The prophecies of the French astrologer Nostradamus remain famous more than 400 years after his death. He has been credited with predicting events like the French Revolution and World War II. But, after careful scrutiny, we present evidence that his prophecies were, in fact, plot spoilers for the Star Wars films.

Nostradamus' prophecies were written in such vague, metaphorical language, that, over the years, people have selectively quoted and interpreted them to prove that he could see centuries into the future.

But, did it ever occur to anyone that Nostradamus wasn't predicting events, but film plots? More specifically, that Nostradamus, through his visions, saw the entire Star Wars saga before it was even made? We believe his writings were those of an enthusiastic fan and, as proof, we present his prophecies and - for the first time in history - interpret them for what they really are.

The video was reportedly captured in August but was uploaded to YouTube this month and has gone viral.

Bible too far-fetched even for me, says Pope

Following yesterday's announcement that the theories behind both the Big Bang Theory and evolution are real and that God is not a 'magician with a magic wand', Pope Francis has issued a second statement today admitting that there are things in the Bible that even he thinks are pure guff.

The popular Argentinian pontiff, who gained admirers with his more lenient views on gay partnership earlier this year, went on to state that there are some parts of the Bible that even he, as God's representative on Earth, has to admit are pretty out there.

Speaking at his daily pre-mass sermon, Pope Francis shocked listeners by reading passages from both Old and New Testaments while making googly eyes and circling one finger around his temple.

Citing key examples of Catholic dogma such as the immaculate conception and the resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ™ as being "metaphors, at best", the 266th pope began to giggle as he moved through chapter and verse of the Bible, angering some of the more senior Cardinals who were present.

Baby pandas outwit zookeepers plan to deliver dose of medicine

Getting kids to take their medicine can be hard, but when it comes to adorable panda cubs, it can be even more difficult.

In a new viral video, a Chinese zookeeper needed to give a dose of medicine to two pandas, but it didn't go according to plan, the Huffington Post reports.

The two young cubs mistake the man's presence for playtime as they climb on top of him and even cling to his legs.

As Metro notes, just as the zookeeper is close to getting one of them in position to take the medicine, the other panda climbs on his back, sending all three of them tumbling.

Dutch pranksters have fooled food experts and consumers and proved that even foodies can't tell McDonald's from real, organic food when offered some on a plate. The comments from misled 'experts' are hysterical.

Lifehunters, as the guys call themselves, posted a video of them visiting one of the most popular annual food expos in Europe, in the city of Houten, to serve their "top of the notch recipes" from their "high-end restaurant" that serves "organic alternatives to fastfood."

"The problem here is that we don't actually own a restaurant," one of the pranksters, Sacha, says on the video.

So they paid a visit to their "favorite restaurant" McDonald's.

Armed with a serving tray of cut up McDonald's sandwiches made into canapé treats they started their hunt for gullible fans of organic food to ask what experts think about their "specialties."

An Oklahoma woman told restaurant staff Jesus Christ would pick up her tab.
An Oklahoma woman allegedly told restaurant workers her husband, Jesus Christ, would soon arrive to pay her tab, but the holy hubby was a no-show, police said.

Lawton police said Kristi Rhines ordered food and several alcoholic drinks Friday at El Chico and later told workers she didn't have any money, but her husband would soon arrive to pay her tab.

Rhines soon clarified her husband was Jesus Christ, but she admitted the union was not solidified with a marriage license.

'Sanctioned' Chechen leader asks Germany to apologize to his horses after banning them from racing

Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov
The head of the Chechen Republic has ironically called the refusal to pay prize money to his horses "a disgraceful page in Germany's history" and added that German authorities will have to pay "multi-millions in compensation" over the scandal.

Ramzan Kadyrov replied to the news that his two race horses, Zazu and Dashing Home, were refused prize money after races in his usual way - by posting a comment on his Instagram account.

The top Chechen politician complained that the decision would make both horses depressed.

"After prolonged debates in the government and Bundestag, after consultations between the president and the federal chancellor they decided to deprive Zazu of the money earned by honest work and fast hooves. They also limited its freedom of movement. In Berlin they say that any horse must fall under sanctions imposed on its master and answer as if it were human," Kadyrov wrote in his comments.

"It turns out that Zazu is to blame for all the troubles that take place in the World - it was this horse who had made the decision to start wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, the decision to bomb Belgrade."



John Oliver slams SCOTUS for not allowing live video, creates hilarious reenactments, with dogs

© John Oliver/HBO
On Sunday's "Last Week Tonight" John Oliver pointed out that the Supreme Court of the United States just began their annual session. Oliver, however, is frustrated because live video coverage of the cases being argued is not permitted.

Audio clips are allowed to be recorded, however when the clips are paired with court drawings, very important country-altering decisions are reduced to bland images. Oliver has a plan to fix this (and possibly get the country to pay attention to the Supreme Court and the very important rulings that emerge): dogs.

Taking inspiration from the Internet sensation "keyboard cat," Oliver introduces animal reenactments. Watch below:

Bloodthirsty rabbit joins the long list of critters currently attacking humans!

Hilarity ensues as man Is attacked by bloodthirsty rabbit.
The laughing in the background makes it even funnier.

You have never heard a scream like this, Casey the Schnauzer let out a true scream of joy when her long-lost sibling came home. Rebecca Svetina and her family dog Casey have been pals for about 9 years, although their relationship has often been long distance. When Rebecca was studying to be a communication major at Kent State University, Casey was only a puppy. In between college breaks, Rebecca would return to her parent's house is Murrysville, where her dog was always there to greet her.

As any college student knows, there were a lot of hellos and goodbyes as Rebecca went back and forth to college and then home. But never had Rebecca been gone for so long until she decided to embark on a trip to Slovenia in 2008. On July 23, two years later, Rebecca finally returned home. At which point Casey could not have been happier to see her.

Her family was excited to see her, no doubt, but it's her little doggy that stole the show. Just want until you see the video for yourself!
