Students in Brazil are bugged with microchips in their school T-shirts.


Did someone say 1984? Some 20,000 pupils in the city of Vitoria da Conquista have microchips embedded onto their school uniforms. The parents get a text-message when the students arrive in class, or if they are ever late.

Authorities claim that this measure assists parent-teacher communication and relationships.The local government has invested about $700 000 to set up this system. By May of this year, all local children under the age of 14 will have to use them.

The chip is embedded in such a way that causing damage to it, would also cause damage to the shirts. However, the shirts can be washed and ironed without damaging the chips.

Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad played various Power Rangers monsters!


Bryan Cranston is currently playing chemistry teacher turned meth-cooking badass Walter White on the TV series Breaking Bad. But did you know that he once provided the voice for Snizard and Twin Man on the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers?

In addition to the Power Rangers, you might have heard Cranston’s voice in a few other places as well: Royal Space Force - The Wings of Honneamise, Macross Plus, and Armitage III Polymatrix, as well as Clerks: The Animated Series.

Before becoming a household name for his role on Breaking Bad, Cranston had previously acted in numerous films and commercials. He’s also well known from his recurring roles on Malcolm in the Middle, From Earth to the Moon, Seinfeld, King of Queens, and many others.

As an interesting side note, Cranston, a.k.a. Mr. White, has witnessed the meth-cooking process so many times for Breaking Bad that he claims he now knows how to make it for real! (Not that that's a good thing...)

During pregnancy, some women turn the toilet seat purple.


The miracle of creating life sure can get weird sometimes. During pregnancy, some women stain their porcelain toilet seats (this doesn't usually happen with plastic) with a blue, pink, or purple buttmark.

This stain cannot be bleached out and many women just leave their toilet seats be for the while and replace it with a new one after the baby is born. This tendency has no correlation with the health of the baby or the mother and often disappears with the pregnancy.

Doctors who often see pregnant women in their practice are familiar with this phenomenon but have no idea what causes. They do suspect however that it may be linked to a change in the pH level of the skin, that reacts with the porcelain material of the toilet seat.

11 F*****d Up Facts About Russia

There’s a theater in Russia where all the actors are cats!


The Moscow Cat Theater is a traveling circus that showcases cats. Creative director Vladimir and his daughter, Maria, train the cats from birth. They have one cat who continually has litters, yielding them an abundant amount of cats to work with. The circus travels around Russia showcasing cats walking on tightropes, walking across the stage balancing on balls, and walking upside down.

Vladimir says his wife hates all the cats running around, but he and his daughter love them. Maria learns under her father who trains the cats and comes up with the tricks. Often times they simply get to know the cat, who does something crazy, and they then train it to continue to do it.

In Russia, the cat theater is a common thing to see, but elsewhere it is very rare. It is a common misconception that cats are untrainable, and this theater just proves them.
