    Lawyer Learns He Has at Least 75 Children

    Boston lawyer Ben Seisler picked up extra money while attending law school at George Mason University by donating to a Virginia sperm bank.

    Seisler earned $150 per donation, the Boston Globe reports. He apparently visited the sperm bank often.

    In 2005, he used his donor number to register with an online tracking site called the Donor Sibling Registry. Seisler learned he has at least 75 children, the story says. And the 33-year-old lawyer expects the number to grow to 120 to 140 children. He uses an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of them all.

    Seisler is profiled in a Style network documentary that chronicled the issues, including the anger of the woman who became his wife. The program airs tonight. “What if they all come knocking?” she asks angrily on camera. “Did you think of the consequences that would come out of this?”

    George Washington University law professor Naomi Cahn is among those calling for more regulation. Experts fear the explosion in half siblings could result in accidental incest or spread genes for rare diseases.

    wonder if they all got good lawyers and sued him for child support.....

    Treasure hunters eye huge silver haul from WWII ship

    When the SS Gairsoppa was torpedoed by a German U-boat 70 years ago, it took its huge silver cargo to a watery grave. US divers are working to recover what may be the biggest shipwreck haul ever, valued at some $210 million.

    Florida-based Odyssey Marine Exploration on Monday confirmed the identity and location of the Gairsoppa, and cited official documents indicating the British ship was carrying some 219 tons of silver when it sank in 1941 in the North Atlantic some 300 miles (490 kilometers) off the Irish coast.

    Valued then at 600,000 pounds, the silver today is worth about $210 million, which would make it history's largest recovery of precious metals lost at sea, Odyssey said.

    and the good news:
    After a competitive tender process the British government awarded Odyssey an exclusive salvage contract for the cargo, and under the agreement Odyssey will retain 80 percent of the silver bullion salvaged from the wreck.

    so they get to recover it and keep most of it!!

    Life-size Lego SUV is as impractical as it is awesome
    OK, so this awe-inspiring, life-size model doesn't actually drive anywhere. In fact, the doors don't even open. But it's none the less impressive for that. Created to mark the launch of Ford's latest Explorer SUV (and the upcoming opening of the world's largest Lego theme park), the model was constructed by a Connecticut-based team of 22 master builders, a task which took some 2,500 hours. In its finished state, it weighs over 2,600 pounds, more than half as much as the real car -- although about a quarter of its mass is down to a huge aluminum base that strengthens and supports the structure.

    But don't try building it at home. In total, the Lego Explorer uses about 380,000 bricks -- which, at a typical market rate of about ten cents per brick, would cost nearly $40,000. And yes, that's indeed more than enough to buy you an actual, drivable new-model Explorer, with enough left over to spec out some nice options.

    and yes, its news!!

    Two-faced cat sets record as oldest living "Janus" cat

    CONWAY, Mass (Reuters) - Frank and Louie is the world's oldest two-faced cat, which is not to say he is deceitful or insincere.

    Rather, the fluffy, gray feline with two mouths, two noses and three eyes, turned 12 years old this month, setting the record for "longest surviving Janus cat," Sara Wilcox, a Guinness World Records spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

    The name "Janus cat" was coined by British zoologist Dr. Karl Shuker, based on the two-faced Roman god of transitions, gates and doorways.

    Body of 17-year-old boy found behind Taco Bell in Waianae

    The body of a 17-year-old boy was found late Tuesday night in a stream behind a Taco Bell on Farrington Highway in Waianae, police said today.

    The teen may have fallen down a 15-foot concrete embankment into Kaupuni Stream behind the fast-food restaurant at 85-752 Farrington Highway about 10:10 p.m., according to police.

    His identity was not immediately released.

    Police said they do not suspect foul play and that alcohol may have been a factor in his death.

    Mystery figure appears in photo taken by vacationing family


    The De Vanny family visited the Arizona Memorial on Monday, and as usual, Susan took lots of photos.

    "I was flicking through the photos and seeing how many do I really need, and take some of the bad ones out and then I came across this particular photo," said Susan De Vanny.

    The particular photo of the water over the wreckage, with oil shimmering, shows an image that looks like a face. Susan wasn't quite sure what to make of it.

    "I showed my husband and I didn't say anything, I said just have a look at the photo and he said oh my gosh it's a face, and then the kids saw it and they go oh wow."
