(NaturalNews) For the last four years, British Petroleum has been trying to avoiding paying damage claims related to its 2010 massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. But the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that BP would still have to pay the claims it already agreed to pay under the rules of a $20 billion settlement fund. (1)

Since 2010, BP has been spending tens of millions of dollars on advertising and public relations in an effort to clean up its image following the Gulf catastrophe. Cleaning up its image seems to be far more important than cleaning up the damage it caused, however. And because human memories are short and fuzzy (kind of like that burrito you left in the refrigerator last month), BP figures the public won't remember what really happened anyway.

Smart Cars get even better gas mileage when they are upside down

So-called "Smart Car tipping" is a new form of vandalism taking place across San Francisco, where residents have begun tipping Smart Cars on their sides (or even upright) as a clever prank.

"A lot of people have very negative feelings about [Smart Cars]," said one Smart Car owner interviewed by CBS News in San Francisco (2).

The man goes on to explain, "Living in San Francisco as long as I have, I've come to expect random acts of violence and mayhem." (Car tipping is mayhem? Mr. Clean White Guy has apparently never lived in East L.A.)

Smart Cars are selected for the prank for the obvious reason that they are light enough to be manually tipped over by a small group of people who are bored out of their minds and / or interested in a weird rendition of automobile street sculpture.

While most cars are simply tipped onto their sides, the Smart Car pictured on the left was placed into a vertical "lift off" orientation, demonstrating an interesting progression in this "protest art." (3)

As a practical note for Smart Car owners who wish to protect their vehicles from being tipped, it is noteworthy that you can double the weight of the car by filling its gas tank.

College graduate posts breastfeeding graduation photo

Here at Natural News, we're all for breastfeeding babies thanks to all the amazing nutritional benefits of mother's milk. A young mother named Karlesha Thurman apparently agrees, and she decided to celebrate her joy on the matter by posting a college graduation photo with her baby engaged in what can only be called "full-power breastfeeding." (4)

The photo has stirred up all sorts of controversy across the 'net. Apparently there are people who don't yet realize that women have breasts and they feed babies with them. Somehow, when certain people see breasts, they can only think weird, perverted, shameful thoughts... and that tells you way more than you might want to know about the odd things happening inside their own heads.

But let's face it: female breasts have a crucial practical function in raising healthy, high-IQ babies. To observe a mother feeding her own child in the most natural way possible isn't weird; it's LIFE. Only in a bizarre, disconnected society is the act of nourishing a baby considered strange or "socially inappropriate."

Natural News salutes Karlesha Thurman and hopes her courage will inspire other women to feed their babies breast milk instead of formula.
