    'Female Baby Having Two Heads' Born In India

    Conjoined twins were born at a hospital in northern India on Wednesday morning.

    "Yes this report is perfectly true that we have delivered a female baby having two heads,” Dr. Ashish Sehgal, the CEO of Cygnus JK Hindu Hospital, told ABCNews.com in an email. “She is presently alive and healthy.”

    The New York Daily News reports that the babies' mom, Urmila Sharma, couldn't afford an ultrasound and didn't know she was delivering conjoined twins.

    "We only came to know she was carrying conjoined twins after an ultrasound two weeks ago but it was too late to do anything by then," Dr Shikha Malik, who delivered the baby, said.

    According to the Daily Mail, the twins have "two heads, two necks and two spines," but just one body and their chances for survival are slim.

    Sehgal told the Daily News that a “meticulous and challenging” surgery could be the key to saving the twins' life, but the procedure can't take place until they are in stable condition.

    Blondie Bennett, Barbie-Obsessed Woman, Uses Hypnotherapy To Make Herself 'Brainless'

    A California woman who describes herself as Barbie-obsessed says she uses hypnotherapy sessions in the hopes that it will decrease her IQ.

    "I just want to be the ultimate Barbie. I actually want to be brainless," Blondie Bennett, 38, told Barcroft TV. "I don't like being human, if that makes sense... Natural is boring... I would love to be like, completely plastic."

    Bennett has had five breast augmentations and other procedures in the hopes of attaining her goal. But now she says she's undergoing hypnotherapy sessions two-to-three times a week in order to dumb down her thoughts.
    She says it's working.

    "I've had 20 sessions and I'm already starting to feel ditzy and confused all the time," Bennett told the Daily Mail.

    She told Barcroft TV that although she loves her looks, her plastic features tend to turn off a lot of people. She said that her friends and family don't approve of her lifestyle.

    Bennett appears to maintain a NSFW Twitter account advertising live camera shows. Her handle, not surprisingly, is "Busty_Doll."

    Ancient Egyptian Statue Moves On Its Own, Curators At Manchester Museum Say

    Don't go running to mummy just yet: the spooky movements of this Egyptian statue probably have a logical explanation, even if museum curators are in de-Nile about it.

    Staff at the Manchester Museum in Manchester, England say the 4,000-year-old statue, recovered from a mummy's tomb, has been spinning without anybody moving it, NDTV reports.

    The 10-inch tall statue of a man named Neb-Senu was originally an offering to the god Osiris and has been in the museum for 80 years.

    Up until a few weeks ago, the statue had appeared to be stationary.

    "I noticed one day that it had turned around," curator Campbell Price, 29, told NDTV. "I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key."

    Price told the Sun this week that "most Egyptologists are not superstitious people," and said when he first noticed the object had moved, his first instinct was to wonder who moved it.

    “But the next time I looked, it was facing in another direction — and a day later had yet another orientation," he told the Sun this week.

    Price returned the statue to its original position and set up a time-lapse video, which he says shows the statue moving without the help of humans.

    WATCH THE VIDEO (story continues below):

    According to Price, "ancient Egyptians believed that statuettes such as these could act as an alternative home for the spirits of the people they represented, should the body be damaged or destroyed."

    Nevertheless, even the Egyptians didn't expect these statues to move on their own.

    TV physicist Brian Cox thinks he might have a scientific explanation for the spooky movement, according to the Daily Mail: differential friction.

    "Cox suggested that two surfaces, the serpentine stone of the statuette and glass shelf it is on, cause a subtle vibration which is making the statuette turn," Price told the Daily Mail.

    Cox's theory is supported by the fact that in the video, the statue appears to only be moving when visitors are in the museum.

    Price, however, is skeptical of this theory, since the statuette has been on the same surface for 80 years and has never moved before.

    Maybe the mummy's curse will actually be a blessing for the museum, as Price urges the public to visit and try to figure out the mystery for themselves.

    'Chasing UFOs' Stars Blast Their Own Show

    It's been said there's no such thing as bad publicity, but when the stars of your own show give it a thumbs-down, that might be the exception.

    The National Geographic Channel premiered "Chasing UFOs," an eight-episode reality TV show last month, focusing on a trio of investigators traversing America in search of the truth of unexplained UFO reports, alleged alien abductions and reported military cover-ups.

    On the heels of less-than-positive reviews and viewer comments, two of the show's stars -- James Fox and Ben McGee -- revealed their own dissatisfaction with "Chasing UFOs," complaining that the show had placed more emphasis on entertainment value than a serious look at the UFO subject.

        Fox: "I know how disappointed all of you are. I am too. It's not the show that was sold to both myself and scientist Ben. Two months into it, we were off to a great start; good locations, solid witnesses and some opportunities for Ben to apply his field research as a geologist at some crash sites. Very exciting stuff. Unfortunately, when we actually got out in the field, we began to realize that they were more interested in poking around at night than allocating the time necessary during the day as, apparently (so we were told), Americans love watching others sneak around at night from the comfort of their couches. For the most part, it was gratuitous nighttime baloney. ... I promise I'll either quit or change my position within the show because at least I can make it all make some sense. The show does get a bit better further down the road, but not a lot. ... My credibility and reputation has, deservedly, taken a serious hit."

        McGee: "When we were brought onboard, the project certainly had a much harder inclination than its final realization, and as a career scientist, I was excited that NatGeo was at the helm (unaware of their desire for a major shift in programming flavor). Our intentions were very sincere. ... James and I both had expectations and (for our own reasons) hopes of an ultimately serious product. We both saw the project heading i
    n a different direction as time went on and were powerless to influence it. Injecting science into mainstream media is also problematic, and I am suffering heat in my own circles for the lack thereof on the show."

    Fox and McGee wrote their comments on the Facebook page of New York Times best-selling author Leslie Kean.

    NatGeo put up a brave face and tried to spin the criticism, suggesting what the two stars said could be taken out of context.

    "I think, naturally, they're going to get more comfortable with their roles and they're all figuring out what their roles are in the series and how best to be authentic and represent their point of view in a way that viewers can relate to," said Michael Cascio, NatGeo Channel's executive vice president of programming.

    Man Flees After Woman Demands Too Much Sex

    Agence France-Presse reports that a German man in Munich allegedly had to flee to the police after a woman demanded too much sex.

    After several amicably agreed upon rolls in the hay, the man reportedly tried to leave the woman's apartment. But she wouldn't let him exit and instead allegedly insisted on more sex. That's when the man ran to the cops for help, according to authorities.

    Perhaps the woman in question was unaware of a study reported on by Forbes that found that, while women can, for the most part, never have too much sex, men can.

    From Forbes:

    Penile tissues, if given too roistering or prolonged a pummeling, can sustain damage. In cases you'd just as soon not hear about, permanent damage.

    And the German man might not be alone in his desire for a bit less sex.

    Reuters reported on a study that found 12 percent of men aged 16-24 wanted sex less often. It's not a perfect comparison though, since the German man was 43.

    Md. Civil War Museum Gives Severed Arm A Good Look

    Long after the guns fell silent at Antietam, the earth yielded up gruesome reminders of the bloodiest day of the American Civil War: bodies, bones, buttons and entire severed limbs – one of which is now the focus of intense study at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.

    A Sharpsburg-area farmer is said to have found the human forearm while plowing a field two weeks after the 1862 battle.

    Officials at the museum in Frederick, Md., are trying to learn more about the limb in hopes of verifying that it's a relic of the Battle of Antietam and exhibiting the well-preserved specimen during the battle's 150th anniversary in September.

    The muddy-looking right forearm, with skin and hand attached, was donated anonymously to the museum earlier this year, said Executive Director George Wunderlich. It had been displayed for several decades at a private museum in Sharpsburg in a glass-topped, pine case with a placard reading, "Human arm found on the Antietam Battlefield."

    Though there is little hope of identifying the young man who lost it, Wunderlich said forensic experts may be able to discern his nationality and whether the arm was, as Wunderlich suspects, torn from his body by a bullet or artillery round.

    "Being able to put the story of this unknown person before this country is very important to us," Wunderlich said. "His remains will tell a story that will relate us back to his sacrifice. This was what they gave for what they believed. If done properly, it's a very poignant story."

    The unidentified farmer who found the limb put it in a barrel of brine, according to Thomas McGrath's 1997 book, "Maryland September: True Stories from the Antietam Campaign." The farmer reportedly gave it to a Boonsboro physician, who is said to have more permanently preserved it with embalming fluid.

    The arm eventually ended up in a private museum that was sold in the 1960s to John G. Ray Jr. After Ray died in 2001, his widow had the museum's contents sold at an auction, according to battlefield historian Ted Alexander.

    Alexander grew up nearby and remembers seeing the arm on display.

    "It was quite an attraction," he said. "It was macabre and something to see as kid."

    The arm's owner was probably a small man less than 20 years old, said William Gardner, a former Marshall University forensic medicine instructor who examined it in March.

    Stillborn Baby Found Alive By Mother In Argentinian Morgue

    An Argentinian mother has spoken of her shock after her stillborn baby was found alive in a morgue.

    Analia Bouter's fifth child was born at 26 weeks - around three months premature - in Argentina's northern Chaco province.

    Doctors told her the baby had died, but when she and her husband visited the morgue 12 hours later, they realised their daughter was breathing.

    "That night I went with my husband to where the coffin was and he opened it up," she told journalists

    "Immediately I heard her cry... I fell to my knees."

    The hospital the baby was born in


    Her husband Fabian Veron also told journalists of the moment they realised the baby was alive: "The baby was there and they put the little casket on a stretcher. We looked for a bar to prise it open. The casket was nailed shut," he told journalist.

    "My wife jumped back," he said. "I started to prise, took a deep breath and took the top off. My wife was the first one to look at the body and she uncovered it slowly.


    The baby's father Fabian Veron told of his shock


    "She saw the little hand and then uncovered the face. That's when it let the first little cry out."

    Nude Artist Miru Kim Confronts Her Fears With Naked Photographs In Abandoned Buildings

    Public nudity is a common fear for millions, but no one confronts it quite like artist Miru Kim.

    Her body of work is, literally, her body, and she photographs herself in taboo areas, such as the catacombs beneath Paris or the suspension cables of Manhattan Bridge, and has even gone as far to get into a pig pen on her hands and knees in order to get at one with the creatures.

    Is it working? It better, because the 30-year-old is getting a worldwide reputation as a provocative artist whose work appeals to art experts and casual viewers alike.

    "I have always been timid since childhood," she told AOL Weird News. "Most people may think I'm joking considering my work, but it's true. [When I spoke at the TED technology, entertainment and design conference in 2008], I had to cross my leg and my arms both because they were shaking so much... I couldn't even say my name during interviews a few years back."

    Kim first started disrobing for art back in 2004 and admits it was not easy at first.

    "Now I'm used to it, but when I first tried to be nude in front of camera in 2004 I was very nervous," she said. "I remember, in order to get used to being nude for my project's sake, I modeled for a nude portrait for a painter in Berlin, who was my studio mate at the time, and I got so nervous I couldn't stand still.

    "This was a mortifying and humiliating experience at the time. I had to force myself because I had decided
