Research Shows Sitting Can Kill You

People who sit most of the day have a 54 percent greater risk of heart attack than those who spend a good chunk of the day standing.

Researchers at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana came to this conclusion after analyzing the lifestyles of more than 17,000 men and women over 13 years.

The scientists found that even non-smokers who exercise regularly and would be considered in good shape double their risk for heart attack if their job requires them to sit most of the time.

Cute Kids Getting Scared of the Easter Bunny [VIDEOS]

While the Easter bunny is generally well-regarded for its fluffy belly, alert ears and too-cute buck teeth, some humans just aren't so fond of the creature. We're talking about young kiddos who -- when faced with the giant creature every Easter holiday -- erupt into a fountain of tears, traumatic screams and eyes bulging out of their sockets.

It's almost as if adults just want a little entertainment for the day. So, come Easter, they encourage a little PTSD by way of bunny rabbit.

An Indonesian member of parliament was caught downloading an X-rated video from the Internet. Mr. Arifinto hastily resigned after his screen was photographed during a parliamentary session. He'd previously spearheaded Indonesia's 2008 anti-porn bill.

[caption id="attachment_7493" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Youtube"][/caption] By the looks of it, you'd think a band of Alaskan creatures threw a rockin' party and had a bit too much to drink. That's because an invasive species, nicknamed "rock vomit," has infiltrated the state, covering plants, rocks, seashells, boats and any other hard surface with a substance eerily similar to puke. The species is technically referred to as the "Didemnum vexillum" and is a variety of sea squirt that was discovered in Alaska last June. It adheres itself to a hard surface and continues spreading. Though unsightly, the main problem with rock vomit is that it prevents ground fish from reaching their food and can be lethal to other creatures, including commercially sold fish. New England, California, Oregon and Washington are also dealing with the infestation.

The film is being directed by Jee-woon Kim ('The Good, The Bad, The Weird'), and is tentatively set to begin shooting in late August. Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that negotiations are moving along, though the deal could still fall apart over money.
