When it comes to food, I try to stick to my “don’t knock it until you try it” philosophy…but when it comes to Chinese “virgin eggs,” I think I’ll make an exception. Here’s why.

These eggs are boiled in the urine of young boys. In one Chinese city, this dish is considered a delicacy.

For hundreds of years, the people of Dongyang have enjoyed their favorite springtime snack, tong zi dan…which roughly translates to “boy egg.”

The cooking process involves boiling the eggs in urine, cracking them, and then placing them back into the urine pot to absorb as much flavor as possible.

How do they collect the pee? Glad you asked! Buckets are set outside of elementary school classrooms and boys are encouraged to discharge into them between classes. The buckets are then collected by local restaurants.

The locals claim that tong zi dan is beneficial to one’s health, but doctors aren’t so sure. There’s a reason why our bodies get rid of urine, after all.

Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani have agreed to enter into a polyandry marriage contract with Joyce Wambui. Polyandry is a form of polygamy whereby a woman takes two or more husbands at the same time.

Wambui who is in her late twenties, is a widow and mother to twins. She had affairs with both men for four years. When the two men found out, the woman refused to leave either of them, leading to a contractual agreement between the three.

Abdhallah Abdulrahman, a local police officer attempted to make peace between the trio.

“I heard people fighting and went to check, but I was surprised to see two men fighting over a woman who is said to be a widow and a mother of twins. We discussed everything, and they agreed that even if the woman were to fall pregnant they will raise the child as their own since they have been taking care of the woman’s children together.”

Kenya’s NTV station published an excerpt of the contract. It states: “We have agreed that from today we will not threaten or have jealous feelings because of our wife, who says she’s not ready to let go of any of us. Each one will respect the day set aside for him. We agree to love each other and live peacefully. No one has forced us to make this agreement.”

Mdendwa told BBC the agreement was a logical conclusion as he and Kimani had been at odds over Wambui.

“It could have been very dangerous if the other man would have come to her house and caught me,” he said. “So our agreement is good as it sets boundaries and helps us keep peace. She is like the central referee. She can say whether she wants me or my colleague.”

ORLANDO, Florida – A 22-year-old man suspected of burglarizing homes in Florida was killed and partially eaten by an 11-foot (3.4 meters) alligator after he waded into a lake, apparently to avoid detection by law enforcement officers pursuing him, police said on Tuesday.

An autopsy on the man, Matthew Riggins of Palm Bay, determined that he drowned in November after an apparent alligator attack. A necropsy on the alligator revealed parts of the man’s body in the reptile’s stomach, according to a report released this week by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies chased Riggins and another suspect with dogs and a helicopter on Nov. 13 after residents in the Barefoot Bay community reported two men walking behind houses, authorities said.

No suspects were caught that night. Riggins was reported missing by his family when he did not return home, according to the sheriff’s report. His body was found 10 days later floating in a lake, with an aggressive gator standing guard, sheriff’s Major Tod Goodyear said.

“I believe he was hiding,” Goodyear said of how Riggins ended up in the lake. “With the dogs out there, it’s not a bad idea to go into the water.”

Goodyear said Riggins had told his girlfriend by telephone that he would be burglarizing homes the evening of Nov. 13 and later told her he was being chased by deputies. Reuters

Curious diners at a seafood restaurant in Hangzhou were recently spotted crowding around to watch as a young woman hand-fed crab to a salivating gentleman. As it turns out, he bought her “crab-peeling services” on the internet for 260RMB.

The woman reportedly offers her services on Taobao and charges 10RMB to peel each crab with an extra 5RMB if you want to be fed. This particular diner ordered 20 crabs in total and got a little discount because he ordered the “King Meal”.

The hostess says she quit her previous job as a flight attendant on a domestic airline to pursue the freedoms of part-time work. Despite her hands turning red after peeling numerous crabs, she smiled all the way through it and seemed to appreciate the publicity.

Honestly, who could think of a better way to spend the equivalent of £26/40USD/$56AUD?

These men wanted her to feed them too, but she turned them down. It seems she is very devoted to her work.

He thanked the young lady, like a true gentleman, with good feedback on the app where she advertises her services.

For many people, 13 children would be more than enough.

But not for Annegret Raunigk.

The 65-year-old German grandmother recently gave birth to quadruplets, making her the oldest woman ever to do so.

The new arrivals increase her progeny to a total of 17 children. And let’s not forget her seven grandchildren.

Raunigk, a single mother, gave birth last week to three boys and one girl after a pregnancy of just under 26 weeks, the German broadcaster RTL reported.

The newborns — whose names are Neeta, Dries, Bence and Fjonn — were delivered by C-section and are being kept in incubators for premature babies, according to RTL.

Daughter wanted a younger sibling

Raunigk, a teacher from Berlin, made headlines 10 years ago when, at the age of 55, she gave birth to a daughter, Leila. And it was apparently Leila’s plea for a younger sibling that encouraged her mother to try again.

“I myself find life with children great,” Raunigk said earlier this year. “You constantly have to live up to new challenges. And that probably also keeps you young.”

To become pregnant, she used in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment with donated eggs that were fertilized.

One doctor tried to persuade her to abort one or two of the fetuses, but she refused to consider it.

Indian woman holds record

Raunigk, who had her first child at 21, is still not the oldest woman to give birth.

That record is held by Rajo Devi Lohan, an Indian woman who at 70 became the world’s oldest known first time mother after three rounds of IVF.

Her daughter Naveen will turn 7 later this year.

At eleven years old, most American kids are finishing 5th grade and nervously anticipating middle school.

Eleven-year-old Tanishq Abraham just earned three associate degrees, an admirable accomplishment for anyone, let alone a pre-teen.

A native of Sacramento, California, Tanishq crossed the commencement stage at American River College on Wednesday to accept degrees in math, science, and language studies.

He told NBC affiliate KCRA that he wasn’t very nervous when he started taking courses at ARC, so graduating college wasn’t “much of a big thing.” On his Twitter account, he tweeted “4 yrs later-3 college degrees-Vry HAPPY.”

His mother, who put her own PhD studies on hold to homeschool Tanishq said that “even in Kindergarten, he was a few years ahead” and added “we just went from there,” as NBC Bay Area reported.

Tanishq has been a member of Mensa International, an association for people who have scored in the top two percent on an IQ test, since he was four.

When he was seven he began taking classes at ARC, which enabled him to finish his college degrees just one year after graduating from high school.
