Balancing 25 Snails on Face

Love animals? That's good. What about snails? Take a look at the girl in the picture above. She is Tiana Walton, a 9-year-old schoolgirl, who just broke the World Record for Balancing Most Snails on Face! Tiana loves animals and she proved it by allowing 25 snails to cover her face.

The earlier record was in the name of Liam Kenny from Australia, who balanced 15 snails on face. According to the rules of Guinness Book of World Records, to compete for this odd world record, competitors have just one minute to put the snails on their face before tipping their head forward for 10 seconds. Ken Robinson, a local vet witnessed the record attempt in Pye Corner Farm, Alvanley, Cheshire and ensured that no snails were harmed.

Tiana said: "I am not squeamish. It is relaxing but it feels a bit cold. They are quite smelly and you can see their big long eyes facing you. I think my friends at school will say 'urgh'."

Chef recommended Henbane in Salad!

What happens when a popular chef recommends a poison? I am sure that it may lead to deadly consequences. Actually something like that happened with Anthony Worrall Thompson, a celebrity British chef. He mistakenly recommended Henbane, a toxic plant, for salads, instead of the leaves of the weed fat hen. The chef made the recommendation in July edition of Healthy and Organic Living magazine.

Low doses of Henbane can cause hallucinations, dilated pupils, restlessness, vomiting, hypertension and flushed skin. Whereas it's larger doses can even kill a person. So, you can imagine how deadly the salad would be. Thanks God, no one has prepared and eaten the salad! Thompson has apologized for the mistake and on Monday, the magazine issued a correction on their website.
