Cannabis scattered on the ‘420’ freeway
Hundreds of pounds of marijuana were spilled down a US freeway after an accident, TMZ reported.

Whitby is aiming for the vampire record
Whitby hopes to set a new world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as vampires to date. English Heritage invites vampire lovers to don their black cloaks and fangs for a meet-up at Whitby Abbey, thought to be ‘the birthplace of Dracula’. To qualify as a vampire for the gathering, revelers must wear black pants or dresses, black shoes, vests, shirts, black cloaks or coats with a collar and fangs on the top row of teeth.
Larger scorpions are less deadly
Larger scorpions have less potent venom, a study has shown. Researchers at the Ryan Institute at the National University of Ireland studied 36 species and found that the smallest species had venom a hundred times more potent than that of the largest. The news complements a scene in an Indiana Jones film in which the hero’s sidekick is stung by a scorpion and complains that it was huge. “Good,” Jones replies. “When it comes to scorpions, the bigger the better.”
