If you are a regular here at Paranoid News you probably already know that bananas are radioactive due to the presence of a radioactive isotope in them called Potassium-40 but did you know they can kill cancer too? And before you jump to silly conclusions, no it’s not the radioactivity what kills the cancer. It’s not like they are good for chemotherapy. No, Folks, it turns out that bananas produce a chemical known as TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) when they ripe, which happens to kill abnormal or cancerous cells! Which is great, ’cause now perhaps we could just feed our old, black, nasty bananas to cancer patients and cure them instead of just throwing them away in the garbage (The bananas, not the patients). In fact I hate ripe bananas, call me unhealthy (by this article’s standards) but I honestly prefer the yellow ones so I would gladly give them away to save cancer patients.

Now, if this doesn’t sound to you like a freaking end of the world scenario, I don’t know what will, Folks. ‘Cause this is sure as hell, the creepiest description of an asteroid I’ve ever heard!: Imagine an asteroid as big as a small city, covered in a thick layer of unknown black goo, with the inherent power to wipe out all humanity and most species from the face of the Earth and hurdling at thousands of miles an hour in our direction!!! Does it sound like fun to you?
Luckily this evil bastard is not in collision course with the Earth but what if our own gravitational pull draws it closer and puts it into a collision course with us!? What’s with the layer of black goo!? What is it?? And… what would happen if the asteroid does crash into the Earth. Will it unleash a zombie-venom-alien-apocalypse or something!?

North Korea allegedly launched three short-range missiles. The missiles are apparently part of yet another test (I have no idea if nuclear or otherwise) and had no actual target. According to officials, they were aimed away from South Korea and landed in the sea.
South Korea and the US appear to dislike this move and will probably do some wang-waving of their own in the next few months to prove North Korea that they got cool toys too.
It is worth mentioning that we almost had a third world war just a month ago due to threats issued by North Korea, which consisted in launching an attack on American bases in Japan and South Korea. However North Korea’s threat involved medium-range missiles and not shot-range missiles as in this case so South Korea and the US are not worried.

Is the ice age coming? Perhaps not for all of us, but for these Folks, it appears to be already here. A small town in Minnesota and another one in Canada are suffering from a severe case of ice-age-itis; A glacier slowly creeped for miles across land pushed by the strong winds, destroying everything in its path! Some people even compared this phenomenon to a tornado due to the destruction it caused! The creeping ice destroyed houses and trees as it moved across the land and for what I understand the phenomenon is fairly common, yet I can’t help believing that the end is nigh! Creeping walls of ice? Are you serious!? Last time I checked ice was just sitting there, making old people slip and break hip bones!
There’s a large scale black out and there is no power outlets available to charge your cellphone’s battery what do you do?
a)Curl into a ball and cry in the corner.
But hey, you can smile now, ’cause all that is in the past! Now you can connect your cellphone to any phone line and charge it! Why you wouldn’t use the actual phone line itself to begin with is a mystery to me but this seems useful enough to include it here ’cause you never know.
The build does require some minimal skill and knowledge of WTF you are doing but there’s no risk of shock unless you are somehow vulnerable to 20 v electric shocks or stupid enough to lick the cables, in which case go draw a crayon unicorn on a napking while grownups get this figured out.

If you were one of the many worried about going the way of the dinosaurs via asteroid collision then you have nothing to worry about anymore! Because NASA finally found a way to mess things up beyond recognition track and capture asteroids and comets to bring them back to a closer orbit around the Earth for exploitation and research. What could possibly go wrong, right? Like a giant ass rock couldn’t hit us all by itself, now we bring it closer to make things easier for it. Great!
This plan was devised by the president Barack Obama and company after a fairly big fireball crashed in Russia wrecking havoc and injuring more than 900 people, effectively raising full awareness about how a big rock from outer space can come at any second without any warning and crush your every hope and dream in a massive explosion.
When I hear the word “Cave” I immediately think “rough”. ‘Cause I’ve never really seen a smooth cave. Up until this moment. The caves in question? The Longyou Grotto (Longwho? Longme?). Who do you think carved these caves? A bunch of miners? Some hipster architect trying to make a house so underground that no one’s heard about it? A prepper building a bunker?? If you answered any of the above you are wronger than football bat! This cave complex was carved more than 2,000 years ago by I-have-no-idea-who and looks like it was done by people who had access to all modern tools! No kidding, Folks, this thing has ceilings that are up to 30 meters tall in some parts of the cave, an average floor surface of 1,200 square meters, an overall excavation of roughly 900,000 cubic meters, 4 columns that are symmetrically distributed inside one of the caves and many other incredible traits that make you wonder “How the hell did they do that!?”. Not to mention the enigmatic tool marks on the walls that make it look like they used some sort of heavy-duty industrial grade machinery to carve them.

At least 127 people have been infected by a new strain of the avian flu that can be transmitted from poultry to human known as H7N9, 27 of which have already succumbed to the newly discovered disease. Despite the fact that the H7N9 is a Zoonotic disease apparently it cannot be transmitted from human to human (For those who don’t know, Zoonotic is just a fancy word that means that a disease can be transmitted cross-species), which is fortunate considering that there are a buttload of chicken-eating people in China. In fact, forget that, THERE ARE A BUTTLOAD OF ANY KIND OF PEOPLE IN CHINA!!! The fact that this hasn’t gone terribly wrong is almost a miracle. Or really good planning in this particular case, ’cause one of the reasons this infection hasn’t spread even more is because they shut down chicken factories in the provinces with the highest rate of infected people. Which in my humble opinion sounds like a tremendous blow to the Chinese economy. But better poor than dead, right?
