The Internet is not only changing the way people live and work but also altering our brains, according to a UCLA neuroscientist. Gary Small, a researcher who specializes in brain function, has found that Internet searching has made brains more adept at filtering information and making snap decisions.

As an example, Dr. Small says that back when our dads were young, they'd have to look at a picture of a naked chick for nearly a second before they'd know if she was hot.

Sir David Attenborough is being credited with a key role in getting a group of frogs in the mood for love. After being at London Zoo for three years without mating, eight Mission Golden-eyed Tree frogs finally did the deed during a visit by the esteemed British naturalist, producing between 40 and 50 tadpoles.

Biologists say this could be due either to Attenborough's natural affinity for animals or his gigantic green ass.
