On Eggshells: A man in Turkey loves to carve eggshells. For Hamit Hayran, of the capital of Ankara, it is his way of expressing himself. He starts by removing the contents of the egg with a syringe. Then he carefully carves elaborate designs and figures into the delicate shells. Hayran’s newest challenge was puncturing thousands of holes into a chicken egg to break the world record.  He already won the title a few years ago by putting 8,708 holes into an eggshell. More recently, he beat his own record with 11,827 holes. All this without breaking the shell!.

Crazy Contortion: A young girl from the small village of Gaulapar in Uttarakhand State, India, can do a difficult yoga pose – the Niralamba Poorna Chakrasana contortion – 21 times in a minute. The girl’s name is Riya Paladia. She seemed to need barely any effort to bend over backwards at the waist, lower her head down to the mat, slide to a horizontal position on her back, and then do the reverse to stand up again, all without using her hands. And she did it 21 times in a row! Paladia has always loved participating in gymnastic activities and yoga, and she trains to get better.  She has dreams of becoming an Olympian.

Calm Down, Kitty!: Most people who own cats spend their time cuddling and petting them. Not so for a woman in the city of Arjánguelsk, Russia. Her cat may have been a good kitty, but something came over it one day and it started to act strangely. When the woman tried to get out of the kitchen of her apartment, the cat would start hissing and go into attack mode. After being trapped for quite some time and unable to get to her phone, she called out the window to a passerby on the street, who called the local rescue service. Everything turned out all right, with no injuries, and the kitty was taken to the vet for an assessment.

Croc Problem: Anyone interested in getting up close and personal with a crocodile could get their chance in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. However, only wildlife rescue specialists can take on the job. It seems that a crocodile managed to get a motorcycle tire wrapped around its body, which could endanger the reptile’s life. It’s not possible to tranquillize the beast because it might swim away before it becomes sedated. A few attempts have been made to remove the tire but to no avail. Authorities are offering a reward to a qualified person who is able to succeed with the job.
