Oh no, one of Belize’s largest Mayan pyramids has been bulldozed so the rocks could be used for road fill . Awkward. The 2,300 year old structure was on private land, but Belizean law states that any pre-Hispanic ruins are under government protection. Criminal charges are expected to be laid against the construction company. Hmm, so anyone know how to piece together a really friggin old Mayan pyramid?

OMG, a Spanish pensioner in her 80s decided she’d surprise her priest by attempting to restore a 19th century fresco in the local church. Shame she actually didn’t know how to paint. Check out her seriously blotched DIY job …
Want to know how it’s all going to end? Look away those of you who are quite happy living in eternal bliss, but for the rest of you, here goes. Some day the sun is going to explode (and by explode, I mean KABOOM) , destroy our neighboring planets and roast the Earth’s surface , leaving us all but a charred memory in the universe. This according to a group of pessimistic astrophysicist bastards. Good news, it won’t be happening anytime soon, so don on your snuggie blankets, pour a glass of champers and watch reruns of Black Adder.
Psst Oi, hang on just one minute, don’t get too comfie, those friggin Mayans might still be right!!!!
Oh dear, a cleaning lady in Germany is in big doo-dah after she destroyed a sculpture in the Ostwall Museum thinking it was a dirty mess. The sculpture titled When It Starts Dripping From the Ceiling was valued at $1.1 million. The cleaner mistook the beige layer of paint (representing rain water) on the tower as a stain so began scrubbing at it until it became nice and shiny. Oh and just to make it a little extra cringe worthy the sculpture was on loan from a private collector. Egads!
Can the owner of the car with a multi million dollar space balloon splattered over it please come to the front counter. A NASA space balloon has come to an embarrassing end after it crashed through a fence and onto a car (tipping it over) shortly after taking off in Alice Springs. The balloon and it’s payload are now scattered into a thousand pieces (well, there goes the duct tape suggestion) after springing a leak 26,000m up.No one was injured (except for pride).
Psst Geez, I hope there was nothing important in it ! Another tax right-off!
