Allan Carlson, 55, was previously arrested for white supremacist vandalism in California and served prison time for an email hacking scheme targeting Philadelphia newspapers, which was driven by a relentless anger about what he saw as the mismanagement of the Philadelphia Phillies. But it was his near death from a snake bite that occurred in his own bizarre and terrifying home that brought Carlson to headlines most recently, per .

Upon searching the home, officers found dozens of containers holding bugs and snakes. As many as 30 tarantulas were there as well, plus a number of plastic containers with their lids weighed down.

Chances are if you grew up in the '90s, you've probably heard stories (or rumors) about harmful ingredients ending up in a beloved candy or sweet treat. While sharp objects - such as pins and needles - have been found in Halloween candy in the past, as proven true by , there have been dozens of myths relating to poisoned candy, to the point that there's an entire page on the subject.

Like most outlandish conspiracy theories, the idea of the earth being flat has a tendency to appeal to the more marginalized and less creditable members of society.
The popular theory that the earth is flat not only flies in the face of some of the best intellects in history and centuries of accumulated scientific wisdom, it also appears to dispute what common sense and satellite navigation tell us to be true - that the earth, like all heavenly bodies, is spherical in structure.
As such, it's something of a surprise to find that a young science graduate from London subscribes to the most anti-science theory currently doing the rounds.
reports that India-born Safvan is a bilingual science graduate who is a subscriber to the argument that the earth is flatter than a pancake.
Several travelers at Chicago's O'Hare airport caught photos and video of a naked man walking around on the tarmac this week. The man seemed to be strolling around near the Delta Air Lines terminal in nothing but shoes and socks.

The man, who had distinctive tattoos, was said to be walking around "confidently," and was just steps away from boarding the airplane when he was stopped by two officers.
reported that after police handcuffed the man, they draped a neon vest across his midsection in an effort to "preserve some of the man's dignity." It's unclear how the man got through security without any clothing, but people who posted images of the man say that he "waited out" delays in that state, according to witnesses.
A woman from Bangladesh was in for an unlikely surprise when she went to the doctor complaining of abdominal pain one month after she'd had a baby. After an examination, her physician discovered that Arifa Sultana, 20, was carrying twins in a second uterus. She later gave birth via a C-section.

But women with uterus didelphys develop a separate chamber when these tubes fail to combine and this second uterus can have its own cervix and vagina as well.
British protesters who dressed up as zombies during the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William, and were arrested by police in case they committed a crime, have been told by the European Court of Human Rights that there had been no breach of their right to liberty.
reports that nine demonstrators were detained after participating in a tongue-in-cheek "zombie wedding" in Soho when Kate and Wills were getting married in a ceremony at Westminster Abbey two miles away.
