Rosetta's Lander Has Found Organic Molecules On Its Comet

Sup Travellers?! That probe that landed on the comet as part of the Rosetta mission wasn't a big waste of money after all. According to reports from the Wall Street Journal, the probe has detected organic molecules in the comet's atmosphere.

It is still unclear what kind of organic molecules are in the atmosphere but they could very well hold a key to early life on Earth.

Organic molecules are any that contain carbon. We, being carbon-based life forms, are all made of such molecules, which may actually have extraterrestrial origins. Simulations have suggested that ultraviolet radiation bombarding icy particles can form organic molecules out in space. In turn, comets could have brought those molecules to Earth, providing the raw materials for life to emerge on our planet.

At this point the organic molecules can be anything from Methane to complex amino acids, the building blocks of proteins.

There's still a lot more to be done as scientists still need to analyze samples from beneath the comet's surface since their first attempt failed. There might be another chance if Philae gets more sunlight as the comet speeds toward the sun. Meanwhile Philae has gone dark, but scientists are still hard at work analyzing the data it sent back.

I don't think that there are going to find any complex organic compounds on the comet but I strongly believe that there is Methane. There have been multiple previous reports about Methane in space.

Titan, the largest moon of Saturn has Methane so I won't be surprised if the compound is found on random comets floating through space. 

There is some speculation that comets brought organic molecules to earth and even though it seems like a valid theory there isn't enough evidence but I don't think that we need much evidence to prove that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Groom Cancels Wedding After Seeing Video Of Bride Going Wild In Bachelorette Party.

Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are usually pretty wild and certain levels of craziness are expected and tolerated. But there is an unspoken limit to the amount of fun that you can actually have. One woman, however, clearly is unaware of these limits because she took her bachelorette party to a whole new level and it all surfaced online.
The woman got a little too "personal" with a stripper. And after some alleged "hacking" the video got sent to the groom and as you can expect, he wasn't too happy about it. 
The woman was literally banged by the stripper (like full penetration). I mean, a little dance might have been forgivable but not a full on banging. 
Like really? 
Obviously, the groom called off the wedding after seeing the video.

The video was then uploaded by a certain Carmelo Delva and went viral on social media. Now, the video gets very lewd and I'm pretty sure it's been deleted by Facebook now but it begs the question --- was the groom righ…

VIDEO: Dad Abandons Little Girl On Dirt Road, Then He Looks Into The Rear View Mirror

Adoption is one of the kindest things things you can do as human and I have enormous respect for anyone who does it. It's usually a spark of enthusiasm that causes a family to adopt someone into their home but for some, that spark of enthusiasm doesn't last very long and becomes dim. When things get hard, and the responsibilities kick in, remembering why you adopted in the first place becomes more and more fuzzy.

The short video below is a perfect depiction of what happens when the spark dissipates. In the video we see a family adopting a little girl from an orphanage. At first they are super excited to have a new addition to their family but eventually their excitement wears off and quickly turns to annoyance.

When it gets to be too much, the father packs the little girl into the car with her favorite toy and starts off towards an empty dirt road. The father stops the car on the side of the road and throws the girl's toy far from the car. As she runs after her toy, Dad q…
