NC to stop fighting challenges to marriage amendment
WRAL: North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said his office would no longer oppose challenges to the state’s constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex marriage.
The announcement comes after a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Virginia’s constitutional and statutory provisions barring gay marriage and denying recognition of such unions performed in other states violate the U.S. Constitution.

#6. Tyrannosaurus’ Cute Little Arms Could Rip You to Shreds
Though they were only slightly longer than an average man’s, you’ve got to remember that a T. rex’s arms were attached to nine salivating tons of pure, fabulous muscle. His biceps alone could curl 430 pounds apiece, and that’s not even taking into account the fact that those guns had backup in the form of the friggin’ nuclear weapons that were his chest and shoulder muscles. Paleontologists think that a T. rex’s arms were powerful enough to help him push his enormous body up from the ground after sleeping, or to latch onto a female T. rex during mating. If they’re strong enough to bone a T. rex with, those arms are more than strong enough to rip you apart like so much meaty Weetabix.
