If you had to choose between facing a grenade on land or in water which would you pick? If you picked water, then you’re dead. While facing off against a grenade on land isn’t great either, the explosion underwater sends a shockwave with enough pressure to crush your lungs or lead to brain hemorrhaging. You’ve got a little better chance ducking for cover on land. Let’s just hope we never are faced with this scenario in the first place.

Russians like their adult beverages. In fact, an average Russian drinks about 32 pints of pure alcohol every year. So, it probably came as a huge surprise when their government decided to classify beer as alcohol rather a soft drink in an attempt to help curb alcohol abuse.

If you’re in Minnesota, definitely don’t oil up a pig and chase after it. It’s against the law! We’re guessing this crazy law was written to protect animals. It’s kind of nuts people actually did this.

Pseudoscience on swaying gender selection has been around for centuries. Doctors believed the left testicle always produced girls in the 18th century, so if a man desperately wanted a boy, they’d advise he cut off his left testicle to always get a boy.
