Ill start it off with this one:

North Korean archaeologists find... a unicorn lair
North Korea's central news agency has reported that archaeologists have found a mythical unicorn lair belonging to an ancient King.

For some reason I just pictured PSY doing a gangnam style video while riding a unicorn, like a boss :lol:

Snakes on an actual plane cause emergency landing
A 48-year old Jordanian man who owned a reptile shop decided to bring his Egyptian Cobra along for the flight and smuggled it in via his carry-on luggage. During the flight, he for some reason wanted to say hello to the snake, and while attempting to handle it, the man was bitten in the hand. After this, the cobra slithered away, loose in the cabin.

This story raises some questions. First, how did this man manage to smuggle a live cobra onto a plane? And if security is that bad in Cairo, then how does the TSA justify stopping me for bringing nail clippers onto a plane? Thirdly, and most importantly, where was Samuel L Jackson during this incident? It should also be noted, that this isn't the first time there's been snakes on a plane. Last year, a traveler in South America was stopped after attempting to travel with checked baggage contain over 400 snakes - they never made it into the cabin though.
