The Utah Boy Scout leaders who became Internet famous yesterday for posting video of themselves selflessly ending one of humanity's millennia-long geological nightmares may be facing criminal charges, according to a spokesperson from Utah State Parks. Though Glenn Taylor and Dave Hall contend that they were saving human lives by toppling the rock-formation that took millions of years to form but was apparently getting ready to fall over and crush some innocent kid at any moment, park officials remained unappreciative of their hard work. "It just made sense to us at the time — remove the danger so that we don't have to hear about somebody dying," Hall said. Such bravery.

5. Science Finally Gets Around To Tracking Speed Of Pee

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered for some reason that all mammals urinate at around the same speed. After timing a bunch of animals — including rats, dogs, elephants and goats — doing their business, the scientists determined a "law of urination," which holds that they all take approximately 21 seconds to empty their bladder. Use this information as you will.
