A pig has become an overnight super star in China after it escaped from its farm to bow its head in front of a Buddhist temple in what appears to be a prayer pose.
The pig was photographed and videotaped outside the temple in Wenzhou when the animal struck a bowed pose that witnesses said made it appear the pig was praying — although others hypothesized the animal may have been kneeling as a result of a Vitamin E deficiency.
Witnesses said the pig was in the prayer position for a long period of time before a monk arrived and chanted prayer sutras for it. The pig’s prayers seem unlikely to have been answered, as the animal’s owner, identified by the surname Huang, revealed the animal was sent to a slaughterhouse after being recaptured.

According to engineer Saheed Ariyori, who is a consultant to the Lagos State Material Testing Agency, the building collapse was as a result of faulty foundation.
P.M NEWS reports that Ariyori made the claim today, Wednesday, March 4, 2015, while testifying before the coroner’s inquest investigating the collapse of the building.
While speaking at the inquest, Ayiroyi, who was led by Mr Akingbolahan Adeniran, counsel to the Lagos State Government, stated that he was part of the team of structural and geo-technical engineers that carried out a Structural Integrity Test on the building after it collapsed.
Ariyori said: “Based on all the tests and the calculations, we discovered that from inception, the building failed because the base that was supposed to take the load was grossly inadequate.
The son of the 79-year-old Justice Uwais, The chief justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria from 1995 till 2006, is now an active combatant with Isis.
The Nigerian Watch reports that the young man has left Nigeria for Syria few days ago with his two wives and children to allegedly enlist and fight alongside the Isis terrorists who presently control large territories in Iraq, Syria and Libya.
Justice Uwais, who after his retirement served as chairman of the committee that reviewed Nigeria’s electoral laws in 2007, has been informed about his son’s decision although it cannot yet be ascertained if the son had been involved with Nigeria’s home-bred Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The alleged move is seen as a big coup for the terrorists as it has now become a growing trend among middle class Muslims from wealthy families across the world who mostly abandons their legitimate and lucrative careers to join the jihadist in their arm struggle.
The oldest woman in the world, Japan's Misao Okawa, celebrated her birthday today. the 117-year-old insists living this long is really no big deal.
Okawa celebrated her birthday today early wearing a pink kimono at her nursing home and was presented with a bouquet of flowers. When asked about how she felt about reaching the milestone birthday, she simply said, "It seemed rather short," but added she was "very happy."
Okawa is one of the five documented people born in the 1800s who are still alive today (she was born in 1898). Okawa's predecessor was also Japanese. It's estimated that Japan has around 58,000 centenarians -- the highest of any country in the world. It's no surprise as Okinawa, Japan is considered to be a "blue zone" where extreme longevity is quite common. It's believed that their plant-based soy-rich diet -- as well as exercise and plenty of sunshine -- all contribute to residents' long lives.
As for Okawa, she's said that eating well, getting her eight hours of sleep at night and knowing how to relax are what have kept her going so long. But today, she was a little more nonchalant about her 117 years on the planet, saying she's not so sure what the secret to longevity is. "I wonder about that too," she said.
What's the average penis size? The results are in, and they show it takes less to be well-endowed than you might think.
The average length of an erect penis is 5.16 inches (13.12 centimeters) and the average circumference is 4.59 inches (11.66 centimeters), according to a new analysis of penis length studies involving more than 15,000 men around the world. As for a flaccid penis, the average length is 3.61 inches (9.16 centimeters) and the average circumference is 3.66 inches (9.31 centimeters).
The British researchers behind the analysis say theirs is the first systematic review of penis size measurements.
Dr. Gordon Muir, a urological surgeon at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in London stated:
"We wanted to be able to help men and their doctors with a definitive paper since there are many contradictory reports from small or poor quality studies, Many men live lives of misery and shame, or undergo harmful and unproven interventions, due to a false belief they are abnormal."
Muir and his colleagues reviewed 20 studies of the penis measurements of men between the ages of 17 to 91 in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The studies were conducted by medical professionals using a variety of techniques -- with some measurements taken while men were lying down under anesthesia, and others taken with guys standing and holding their penises parallel to the floor.
The researchers then used the data to determine the averages, and created graphs showing the distribution of the size of flaccid and erect penises.

A LAUGHABLE thing that some men do is when a man claims that the WOMAN in his life DOESN’T HAVE RESPECT AGAIN...the AKARA wey you don chop for BED? See o,the moment you start sleeping with any woman(wife or girlfriend)- you become one. there is NO more SENIORITY...infact,the two of you have become MATES, the only thing left is mutual respect and unconditional love! You can only appeal to her to learn to SWEETEN her choice of words to you-after all, there are many ways to tell someone SHUT UP .If SENIORITY be your head ache...go and BED members of your age grade in the village na-make person hear word. For real, certain things are unbecoming amongst our men...high time SOME of them learnt that MARRIAGE/RELATIONSHIP is NOT a MASTER –SERVANT game. Look closely, the next time SOME men complain that their woman DOES NOT HAVE RESPECT AGAIN-she’s probably busy with some chores and appealed to him to see to what she has on fire or get her a glass of water-that is the DISRESPECT-in somebody’s book o! Some of them even try this CRAP here on the blogosphere, you DARE give a guy a REJOINDER on an issue and his next comment reads I HOPE YOU CAN LIVE IN A MAN’S HOUSE. My usual response to that is "Go F**K ur self".
Lets make love not war. This is where the Nigerian woman stands.
A 67-year-old pensioner, Asimiyu Olayinka, has pleaded with the Alakuko Customary Court in Lagos yesterday to dissolve his 26-year-old marriage to his wife Fatimo, who he accused of adultery.
The last time I slept with my wife was the last time my manhood functioned. On that day, my wife gave me a special treatment when I returned from work which led us to our bedroom. Surprisingly, during lovemaking, I had a terrible attack. I fell from the bed and excreted on my body. I thought I was going to die because it was like magun (charm) was placed on me. As I speak, it’s been three years since I slept with any woman. I am impotent.”
He said: “I married her solely because my second wife was troublesome. I wasn’t even bothered she had two sons from her previous marriages because when I met her, she was the best woman in the world. She took care of the seven children I had from my previous marriages. The problem started when I retired in 2005. She stopped listening to me likewise our children. Our first daughter dropped out of secondary school because I asked her to repeat a class and her mother was not in support.
