This may be the most disgusting story in the history of... ever.

A London native named Consi Taylor recently purchased a bundle of bananas.

But when she prepared to enjoy a nice, potassium-filled snack, the 29-year old tells The Sun she thought she saw "mold" on the peel… only to realize it was something much, much worse.

"I had a closer look I saw some funny looking spots and was horrified to see they were spiders," Taylor says. "They were hatching out on the table, scurrying around on my carpet."

While Justin Bieber was busy being photographed leaving a brothel, Katy Perry was at home not being dumb. This strategy paid off as the "Walking on Air" singer has surpassed The Biebs as the most popular celebrity on Twitter.

Katy Perry boasts a record 46.48 million followers to Justin Bieber's 46.47 million. (How many of those followers are the same would be interesting but we've already used up our quota of math skills for the day.)

Perry's social media strategy? "Don't drink and tweet." And keep your clothes on.

  • Katy Perry in Pink
  • Justin Bieber Gets Hot

Bieber ousted Lady Gaga from her two-year reign as the Queen of Twitter 9 months ago. How long Katy Perry will remain on top of Twitter remains to be seen. But one thing's for sure, she's not changing who she is in order to gain more followers. 

Why would she when being genuine has been working for her so far?

The phrase "sleep like a baby" is common because, well, have you ever seen a baby sleep? They're so peaceful and angelic that it's hard to resist giving them a good snuggling, sometimes even all night long.

While the rate of SIDS deaths have decreased, other sleep-related deaths, such as suffocation, have increased. This has the National Institute of Health researchers trying to find out just what's happening to cause this increase.

Their findings? Co-sleeping. Despite warnings and recommendations against the practice, twice as many people are co-sleeping with their infants now than 20 years ago. 

Sudden Infant Death Sydrome, SIDS, is one of the leading causes of death among infants in the United States. Its causes aren't clear. Sleep positioning is a critical component and the American Academy of Pediatrics' "Back to Sleep" campaign has lowered the number of SIDS-related deaths significantly.

But it seems some parents still aren't getting the memo about what safe sleep for infants looks like.

Nothing is certain except death and taxes. And Facebook. When will the dead on Facebook outnumber the living? 

No, we don't mean dead people Facebooking from the afterlife. Unless you're Bonnie from The Vampire Diaries and Jeremy's updating your status.

Can Facebook continue to attract younger users and keep the network alive, or will it eventually reach a point where the site's members die off so that more users are dead than the number actively posting?

The anonymous blogger behind the What If? blog asked that very question and set out to find an answer.

Facebook Phoograph

The blogger, through the use of numbers and algorithms and dates and doing math, determined that there are two possible answers to this very morbid question.

Britney Spears. Jesus Christ. Aside from wildly successful comebacks, what do these two have in common? A musical, that's what.

SPEARS: The Gospel According to Britney will use the Britney Spears' music to tell the story of Jesus Christ.

It's a good thing this show is one-night only because the theater might not be standing by the time it's over.

"Is it the greatest story ever told set to the greatest music ever written?" asks the shows' promotional materials? idea.

The show promises to answer the question, though, provided the lead performer isn't struck by lighting like Jim Caviezel was when he gave the savior-impersonating a go back in 2004.

And here we thought the saying was "like taking candy from a baby." One mom in D.C. posted a sign shaming the person who stole her son's pumpkin off their front porch.

Guess the thief didn't get the memo about what we're supposed to be stealing.

(Hint: Snickers. Always the Snickers. Steal the Snickers. Share them with me.)

But this person? Oh, no. This person had to steal a toddler's pumpkin, and only his pumpkin, leaving the other three pumpkins alone. Yep. Definitely an a$$hole move.

First there was twerk shaming. Then there was fat shaming. Normally, the person doing the shaming draws our ire, but this time? This time it's definitely the shame-e who deserves the internet's irritation.

Asher Vongtau, a student at New York University, was heroically rescued on Saturday after spending more than 36 hours trapped in a 2-foot wide shaft between his dorm room and a parking garage.

Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place! 

FDNY rescue workers had to break through a cinderblock wall in order to free the young man, who tumbled down the shaft sometime after 7 a.m. on Saturday morning following a routine fire drill in his dormitory.

When Vongtau didn't return from the fire drill and wasn't returning text and phone calls, his friends and family began to worry. They were told he had to be missing for 72 hours before a missing persons investigation could begin.

Thankfully, their persistence paid off and Vongtau was located around 5 p.m. on Sunday evening when campus security found his phone on the roof of the building.

If you're driving down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles any time soon, keep your eyes peeled for an advertisement which has caused quite a commotion. A billboard of a U.S. soldier embracing a Muslim woman is creating a bit of a stir, and it might be headed for a city near you.

Is this an advertisement for tolerance? Acceptance? It has to be some sort of PSA, right? Wrong.

Snorestop, an anti-snoring sleep aid, commissioned the advertisement to show how it keeps couples together. Couples whose relationships are irreparably harmed by...snoring.

Snorestop spokeswoman Melody Devemark said the company wanted "to show couples that you normally don't see in advertising."

"People feel that we're trying to misuse the image of military servicemen. I think they don't understand that there are couples like this that do exist."

Hey, if Cheerios can do it...

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point hosted its third same-sex wedding since said marriages became legally recognized by the State of New York in 2011.

Larry Choate III, class of 2009, married class of 2007 cadet Daniel Lenox in a ceremony officiated by Chaplain Cynthia Lindenmeyer and about 20 guests. 

"It's maybe one more barrier that's pushed over a little bit, or maybe one more glass ceiling that's shattered and makes it easier for the next couple," said Choate.

In 2012, more than a year after same-sex marriage became legal in New York, two female couples were married at the famed West Point campus.

Choate and Lennox's wedding is the first between two men to take place there.

Gary Kubiak, the head coach of the Houston Texans, was hospitalized after collapsing in the middle of the NFL team's game against the Colts on Sunday.

Kubiak doubled over in “extraordinary pain” just before halftime.

As the teams were heading to the locker rooms, medical officials rushed to his side. The coach reportedly wasn’t opening his eyes, though he was talking.

Medical personnel finally managed to get the 52-year-old to sit up before loading him into an ambulance and transporting him to a nearby hospital.

Wade Phillips, the offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans and the assistant coach who took over for Gary, said that the hospital trip was precautionary.

Kubiak's "heart rate was fine and his pulse was fine,” luckily.
