Odd things, daily.
With all the strange things in the world, like breastfeeding dogs, girls spontaneously turning into boys and people turning dead pets into helicopters, it’s easy for smaller stories to fall through the cracks. That’s why we’re starting OddBits, a roundup of the weeks strange but short bits.
The 28-year-old Brittish barmaid formerly known as Emma-Louise Hodges, has legally changed her name to “Miss Pussy Galore Honey Rider Solitaire Plenty O’Toole May Day Xenia Onatopp Holly Goodhead Tiffany Case Kissy Suzuki Mary Goodnight Jinx Johnson Octopussy Domino Moneypenny”.

After discovering time and time again that her laundry was damp, a Wisconsin woman installed security cameras. She soon discovered that her neighbour, Thomas Schultz, was sneaking into her home on a regular basis and urinating into her laundry hamper.

Convinced he was going to die after suffering a heart attack, Nashville man James Washington made a chilling confession. The recipient of the confession, James Tomlinson, claims Washington said, “I have to get something off my conscience and you need to hear this. I killed somebody. I beat her to death.”
Washington was referring to the murder of Joyce Goodener on July 5th, 1995. To everyone’s surprise, Washington recovered from the heart attack and immediately took back the confession, but it was too late. He was found guilty of murder late last month and is now facing a life sentence.
Stuart Brody of the University of the West of Scotland has been studying the relationship between a woman’s walk and the history of her vaginal orgasms. The study, which was published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved videotaping woman walking from a distance and then having them fill out a questionnaire about their vaginal orgasmic history.
With the help of two professors of sexology, Brody concluded that the more relaxed a woman’s gait and the longer her stride length, the richer her orgasmic history is.
Max Galuppo was visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art and discovered the subject in one of the paintings looked exactly like him. Galuppo believes the man in the 1592 painted entitled “Portrait of a Nobleman with Duelling Guantlet” is his doppelgänger.
