Dog Walker Finds Smelly Lump Of Whale Vomit On Beach That's Worth £100,000

A dog walker who spotted a smelly yellow rock on a beach says discovering it as whale vomit was like finding a “bag of cash”. Ken Wilman said his boxer dog Madge found the 6lb lump, which could be worth £100,000, in Morecambe, Lancashire. Ken only realised its potential value after an online search revealed the substance was ambergris, an ingredient used in the manufacture of perfume. A French dealer has offered £43,000 but experts say the lump of hardened intestinal slurry from a sperm whale could be worth twice as much.

Sperm whales eject an intestinal slurry called ambergris into the ocean, where the substance hardens as it bobs along. Eventually it gets collected along shores - most often as sheer happenstance, as in the case of eight-year-old Charlie Naysmith in the U.K. a few days ago. Walking along the beach in Dorset with his dad, the boy found what looked to be a very odd rock. He and his dad used Google to help identify it as ambergris. Weighing more than a pound, it is said to be worth up to U.S. $63,000.

13 Vanity Plates That Know Exactly What You're Thinking

Ever look at a license plate and think, "Yes, my thoughts exactly,"? Us, too.
While you can't deny the charm of a vanity plate that catches you completely off guard with something accidentally inappropriate, it's nice to occasionally come across one that simply gets it right (intentionally or not). It seems to say, "Hey, we're all in this great big world together and we've got a lot in common. For example, I, too, think my driver is terrible at parking."

10 Most Disturbing ‘Pokémon’

By andrew_dyce

'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'; a sentiment that no video game franchise embodies as succinctly as Pokemon. That shouldn't be taken as an insult, since even the people developing the series maintain that like any lasting sport or game, Pokemon doesn't need to change to stay relevant.

As the franchise closes in on twenty years - and prepares to add yet another Nintendo console to its resume - we thought we'd look back; not on the games or creatures that we most treasure, but the ones that keep us up at night.
Here are the 10 Most Disturbing Pokemon Facts.
