Teddy Bear puppies are the craze right now, but did you know that they are a relatively new type of dog, and have only been around since the late 1990s?

However, the term "Teddy Bear" has been widely used to describe a number of different hybrids between breeds, such as Toy Poodles, Shih Tzu, Bichon Frise, Yorkshire Terriers, Cocker Spaniels, Daschunds, and Schnauzers.

UFO Encounter Strange

Fredrick Valentich radioed Melbourne Flight Service at 7:06 PM to report an unidentified aircraft was following him at 4,500 feet and was told there was no known traffic at that level. Valentich said he could see a large unknown aircraft which appeared to be illuminated by four bright landing lights. He was unable to confirm its type, but said it had passed about 1,000 feet overhead and was moving at high speed. Valentich then reported that the aircraft was approaching him from the east and said the other pilot might be purposely toying with him. He said the aircraft was "orbiting" above him and that it had a shiny metal surface and a green light on it. Asked to identify the aircraft, Valentich radioed, "It isn't an aircraft" when his transmission was interrupted by unidentified noise described as being "metallic, scraping sounds" before all contact was lost. A sea and air search was undertaken that included oceangoing ship traffic, a P-3 Orion aircraft, plus eight civilian aircraft. The search encompassed over 1,000 square miles. Search efforts ceased on 25 October 1978. Continue reading for more.

These figures come to us from the Bank of America's wealth-management arm, US Trust. In its most recent quarterly SEC filing, Apple reported that it had $158.8-billion in cash and cash equivalents plus short- and long-term securities. US Trust reports that the cash-strapped American government has reserves of just $48.5-billion." Continue reading for more.

Comma Fail

There's no mistaking someone's call in real-life for when a meal is ready, but online, a simple comma could mean something entirely different, and an activity nobody should be delving in. Unfortunately (or fortunately), many people either don't have the time, or just don't care, about proper punctuation, and it leads to some awkward conversations to say the least.

Sauron Ring

By definition, a smart aleck is a person who is irritating because they behave as if they know everything. For example, this person decided to comment on a person's "Lost Gold Ring" flyer with a "Nice Try, Sauron" as a joke, or if they actually knew the person. Other examples include: responding to "what ended in 1896" with 1895 and leaving a slice of pizza for someone, but with a catch. Continue reading for more.
