FOR MY NEXT TRICK I WILL SEPARATE FOOLS FROM THEIR MONEY
Illusionist David Copperfield claims to have found a "Fountain of Youth" on one of the islands he owns in the Bahamas. "I've discovered a true phenomenon," he said in an interview with Reuters. "You can take dead leaves, they come in contact with the water, they become full of life again. ... Bugs or insects that are near death, come in contact with the water, they'll fly away. It's an amazing thing, very, very exciting." Copperfield says he has hired biologists and geologists to test the water and its effects on humans before he will let anyone buy it ... I mean, drink it.

A Japanese company has created the world's first chewing gum that will increase the size of your breasts.

As if that isn't enough to make you rush out and buy some, other side effects of the miracle gum supposedly include smoother skin, less wrinkles, thicker hair and the alleviation of menstrual cramps.

THOSE MONKEYS ARE HACKS
Professors and students at the University of Plymouth in the UK have finished experiments testing the theory that an infinite number of monkeys typing on an infinite number of typewriters would eventually produce the works of William Shakespeare. The study charted the creative output of six monkeys for a month before the researchers concluded that the monkeys wouldn't ever come up with anything even closely resembling a single word. Instead of churning out rhyming couplets and over-dramatic sonnets, the monkeys only succeeded in partially destroying the equipment and using it as a toilet. They did come up with about five pages of text, almost exclusively of the letter "s", as well as a few occurrences of the letters a, j, l and m. (BBC)
