[June 3-9th, 2018] A severed snake head sends a man to the hospital, a cat turns 30 years old, and a woman sees Jesus on the shell of a horseshoe crab.

30-Year-Old Cat

What many people believe to be the world’s oldest living house cat turned 30 this week! The orange-and-white kitty named Rubble was born in 1988. Rubble lives with his owner, Michele Foster, in the United Kingdom. When asked if her cat was enjoying the attention he’s getting for her birthday, Foster responded that her cat was a private guy and wanted to live out his old age in peace.

Severed Snake Head

A man in Corpus Christi, Texas, was rushed to the hospital and administered 26 doses of anti-venom after being bitten by the severed head of a rattlesnake. He had just beheaded the snake with a shovel when he reached down to pick it up. The head turned and bit his hand, releasing all of its venom. He immediately began having seizures and lost his vision, but doctors were able to quickly treat him, and he’s now recovering.

Ghost Fashion Show

In the midst of its current social reforms, Saudi Arabia has been trying a lot of new things, but a model-less fashion show highlights this dissonance. Previous fashion shows only allowed female audience members, and male designers weren’t even allowed backstage. They seem to have found a way around that by removing the models entirely and using drones to float their dresses across the stage. Some women, however, regard this as a win, saying they have more important things to do than prance on stage.

Best Beer At The Ballpark

Gabby DiMarco was watching a fairly unremarkable game between the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves when a foul ball rocket into the stands and landed in her beer cup. Stunned, she held this glass high as fans cheered and chugged. She downed the nearly full cup, leaving just the baseball inside as the stands went wild.

Jesus On Horseshoe Crab

A Florida woman claims to have found the visage of Jesus Christ on a horseshoe crabs. While horseshoe are incredible on their own—they’ve been around for millions of years and their blood has saved countless lives—not everyone is sure they see Jesus. The woman who discovered it, Cathy Rader, claims it’s a message from God, and broke into tears when she first saw it.
