Odd news this year

Go on, you know you want to read it—a roundup of the year's stranger stories.

A friend of mine was once accused by his brother of being too "pendantic". He says he saw the trap, but couldn't stop himself, and said, "Actually, that's pedantic." "See?", said his brother.

Well, sad to say, me too. When reading the above-linked story, you should note that cane toads are amphibians, not reptiles. And no, amphibians are not a subgroup of reptiles. Amphibians and reptiles are both chordates (as are we, with the exception of some politicians I could name), but that's as close as they get.
