  • This photo of a dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

    The photo that Kansas veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington

  • The Real Meaning Behind Snape's First Words in "Harry Potter" Is Absolutely Heartbreaking

    As if dealing with Severus Snape's death and his sad story wasn't tragic enough, a new revelation about the character has come to light – and it's heartbreaking. A serious Harry Potter fan has developed a new theory around Snape's opening line in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In the film, Snape, played by the late Alan Rickman, asks Harry, 'Tell me, what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?' While the complexity behind the Potions question went completely over our heads, it turns out that it was very important to the story. The fan, who goes by the name tomhiddles, decoded the meaning behind the words and was shocked at what it really meant.

  • On opening night, Jeremy Lin started a new chapter in his career

    Last year was a new experience for Jeremy Lin. It was his first season as a Charlotte Hornet. (Also his last, at least for the time being.) It was his first season playing off the ball. It was also his first playing almost exclusively as a bench player. More than 80 percent of Lin’s appearances came as a reserve. 2015-16 also saw Lin put up his highest usage rate since his breakout campaign as a Knick back in 2011-12 while setting a career-best turnover percentage mark. His role shrunk, but he used his time more wisely, and though he wasn’t tremendously efficient as a Hornet, Lin showed a level of versatility to his game. On Wednesday night, Lin entered his first season as a member of the Brooklyn

  • Dear Abby: Daughter, 5 kids abruptly move in

    DEAR ABBY: I have been with my wife for 16 years. She has a grown daughter who’s the mother of eight kids, but she only has five with her at this time. My problem is, the daughter got evicted, and all of a sudden she brought her belongings to the house. She didn’t ask or anything, she just showed up with the five kids and they are driving me up the wall. I already have two adolescent kids, so seven ain’t heaven. I have tried to talk with my wife, but she doesn’t listen. I’m fed up, Abby, and I’m looking for other accommodations. They have been here for two weeks and — by the way — my sons are now in school while her five are running wild in the house. Am I wrong for leaving? — NEEDS MY OWN SPACE

As it turns out, learned that this Sixers fan is named Richard Harkaway, and when he’s not trying to get a rise out of All-NBA guards, he’s a urologist in Philadelphia. In this instance, after standing up to boo and being provoked by Russell Westbrook calling attention to my being overweight, my action in response was clearly inexcusable and I am embarrassed.
