Dogs are often left bound and unable to access food or water for days on end while awaiting slaughter. Unsuspecting tourists in Bali are eating dog meat that they’ve been told is “chicken satay,” according to a new report. Some of the canine skewers served on the Indonesian island are poisoned from the cyanide used to kill the puppies — and those are the dogs that aren’t just bludgeoned or hung from trees to die, Australia’s ABC reports. “Aside from the cruelty, the greatest shock was to discover that tourists are unwittingly eating dog meat and fueling the trade,” said an investigator from activist group Animals Australia, identified only as Luke for his own safety.

Carrie Fisher had cocaine, methadone, heroin and ecstasy in her system when she died in December, according to an autopsy report released Monday. NOW THAT'S SOME COCKTAIL!

Everyone knows there’s nothing like sinking into a hot bath at the end of a long day to make you say “aahhhh.” But apart from reducing your stress levels, baths might have another side effect. New research suggests that taking a dip might yield results similar to exercise. According to new research, exposing yourself to extreme temperatures can help your body achieve a high level of fitness. Unfortunately, most of the research around this deals with extremely cold water—some data suggests being in the cold can aid weight loss and help counteract the effects of type 2 diabetes. But science says there might be another (warmer) way!

Apparently, death by French fry could happen to you if you’re not careful. People who eat fried potatoes more than twice a week double their risk of an early death when compared with people who avoid this crunchy treat, according to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. I HAD TO GO RIGHT OUT AND GET SOME!

The "dad bod" — the male physique that falls somewhere between buff and Pillsbury Doughboy — is more popular with the ladies than ever, according to a new survey. Women don't want rock hard abs on their fellows, they want love handles. In fact, nearly seven of 10 found a few or 20 extra pounds to be attractive on men, researchers found. Who are these researchers? you ask. Pudgy men, maybe? Actually, the online survey by Kelton Global of 2,006 Americans men and women 18 and over was commissioned by Planet Fitness. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percent. Now you might think that a study commissioned by Planet Fitness suggesting that men need not go to gyms like Planet Fitness to hone their bodies would be the last thing that Planet Fitness would want to promote. SO! REAL WOMEN LIKE REAL MEN!!

HE'S NOT HELPING HIMSELF MUCH PUSHING ANARCHY

Several Democrats in Congress warned President Trump on Friday that he will face consequences if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
SOUNDS LIKE A DARE TO ME!!

The 70-year-old Freeman saved his computer screen and went to the door. He could see no UPS or Postal Service truck. He walked out farther when suddenly a totally naked woman holding a hammer ran past him. She came from his backyard, which had an unlocked gate. As she ran into the middle of Tantau, a reasonably busy street near Cupertino High School, Freeman called after her, “Hey, what are you doing?’’ He remembers that the dark-haired woman paused and replied, “Do you love Jesus?’

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that'll help locate a visiting scholar from China who disappeared from the University of Illinois. Twenty-six-year-old Yingying Zhang was about a month into a yearlong appointment at the central Illinois university when she disappeared June 9. Campus police say surveillance video shows her entering a black Saturn Astra vehicle in Urbana that afternoon. Her friends told authorities she had gone out to sign a lease.

Microsoft’s Surface computers have never scored particularly well when it comes to repairability — look no further than its Surface Book from a couple of years ago, which scored a 1/10 rating. This new computer scores even worse: 0/10. iFixit reports that the laptop isn’t designed to be repaired, and users can’t upgrade individual components like the CPU, Ram or storage because they’re soldered to the motherboard. Their verdict? “It’s a glue-filled monstrosity. There is nothing about it that is upgradable or long-lasting, and it literally can’t be opened without destroying it.”One might consider b4 buying.

EXAMPLE OF TOLERANCE FROM THE LEFT

GEORGETOWN (CBS) – A police officer in Georgetown faced an unexpected task while on patrol Thursday morning – corralling a 1,000-pound pig. Officer Henry Olshefsky responded to a report of a loose pig in a yard on Birch Tree Drive. It turns out the pig was not too hard to spot, thanks to its massive size.

OBVIOUSLY!!
