Sex, Sheep 

A UK study claims that sex with a partner is "400% better" than masturbating. Uhm. That may be the stupidest thing I've heard in, ok, hours. The finding was that after sex, participants' post-orgasmic prolactin spike was 400 per cent greater than the spike following masturbation. This is not really shocking, as prolactin is known to be involved in emotional attachment and affection, both of which are part of having a partner. The interesting bit about this is that elevated prolactin seems to be related to mens' 'refractory period' between orgasms. Viagra 2, anyone?

While older men start having trouble getting it up, middle-aged women seem to be more likely to have twins. It seems that as women approach menopause, their follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) spikes get stronger, leading to more multiple ovulations. Interesting.

And, of course, a homeless man is in a Little Rock jail for stealing a sheep. In a trash bin. Claiming to be a veterinarian. Et cetera.
