Odd and unusual news: Smart Car tipping, graduation breastfeeding photos and British Petroleum weasels

Smart Car tipping

(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.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
