Here's Why Turkeys Have Become So Friggin' Humongous

(2) Comments | Posted November 25, 2015 | 11:17 AM

Humans aren't the only Americans who have gotten bigger over the years.

Just take a gander at your Thanksgiving turkey. It's probably huge.

In the video above, Vox examines the incredible transformation of the turkey. Turns out that selective breeding of turkeys through artificial insemination has fueled the growth, according to the clip.

The Atlantic reported that 2013 marked the first time the average weight of an American turkey passed 30 pounds. In 1929, the average turkey weighed a relatively scrawny 13.2 pounds at slaughter, the clip notes. That number began climbing steadily when farmers took control of breeding to create larger turkey breasts after the USDA released a how-to on artificial insemination in 1939.

"You can spread the one tom around better," John Anderson, a breeder at Ohio State University, explained to the Atlantic. "It adds a whole new level of efficiency. You can spread him over more hens. It takes the lid off how big the bird can be."

But now the males are so big they "can no longer manage to transfer semen to hens," Mother Jones wrote. So, no natural nookie.

And turkeys are not the only super-sizing fowl. Chickens have also blown up because they, too, have been bred to be bigger, according to reports.

At least this bird is still dancing.

Quarrel Saves Couple From Paris Cafe Attack

(0) Comments | Posted November 15, 2015 | 11:24 AM

We often hear about twists of fate that save people from tragedy, like travelers missing a flight that later meets with disaster.

In the case of the terror attack on a French cafe Friday, it was a quarrel that spared a French couple from a fusillade of bullets, Le Huffington Post noted.

Quentin Bongard said in a video interview posted by iTELE that he and his girlfriend were dining on the sidewalk at La Belle Equipe restaurant. They argued and he left, he said. His girlfriend went inside to pay -- and that's when the terrorists opened fire on the sidewalk full of customers.

His girlfriend hid behind a couch inside until the shooting was over, he recalled.

"Luckily we fought, because if we hadn't, we would both be dead now," he said.

Gunmen killed 19 and critically wounded nine others at the cafe, The New York Times reported, as part of several assaults Friday that have left at least 129 people dead.

The Times posted a translated version of the interview above.

Ronda Rousey Eerily Predicted How She Would Lose

(12) Comments | Posted November 15, 2015 | 7:58 AM

If Ronda Rousey doesn't regain her UFC title one day, she might want to try soothsaying for a career.

Rousey, knocked out in stunning fashion Saturday by Holly Holm in a UFC championship bout, predicted how Holm would record the upset on "The Tonight Show" last month, For the Win pointed out.

Now Rousey was being strictly hypothetical with host Jimmy Fallon, but her words have an eerie echo following her "unthinkable" defeat in Melbourne, Australia. During the interview, she complimented Holm's "head-kick knockouts," then offered this about her opponent:

"She’s going to try to keep distance and keep far away from me and get me frustrated into a point where I’ll make a mistake and she can try to kick me in the head -- but it’s not gonna go like that.”

Turns out Holm did kick her in the head, flooring Rousey with a vicious left foot:

Sometimes having a crystal ball can really hurt.
