Jon Ronson on the mysterious cruise ship passenger disappearance of Rebecca Coriam

m.guardian.co.uk
There's no talk of it, but many people on board know something terrible occurred on this route – to Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas – earlier this year. At 5.45am on Tuesday 22 March, a CCTV camera captured a young woman on the phone in the crew quarters. Her name was Rebecca Coriam. She was 24, from Chester, and had recently graduated from a sports science degree at Exeter University. She'd been working in Youth Activities on board for nine months, and apparently loved it. But on the phone she was looking upset. "You see this young boy walk up to her to ask her if she's all right," her father Mike told me a few weeks ago, sitting in the family's back garden in Chester. "She said, 'Yeah, fine.' Then she put the phone down. She turned around. She had her hands in her back pockets, which she always did. Then she put her hands to her head like this, pushing her hair back…" Mike did the movement. It looked normal. "And then she walked off." And that's the last anyone has seen of her. She just vanished. When she didn't report for work at 9am, the crew Tannoyed her. They searched the ship and called the Mexican coastguard, who searched the waters, all to no avail. That was seven months ago. . . .

This man had a face in his testicles

Paireidolia of the Day - The Daily What
A 45-year-old man with severe testicular pain underwent an ultrasound at Queen’s University to determine the nature of the ailment. But when urologists at Queen’s University stared at the image of the man’s testicles, they saw a face staring right back at them. “The residents and staff alike were amazed to see the outline of a man’s face staring up out of the image, his mouth agape as if the face seen on the ultrasound scan itself was also experiencing severe epididymo-orchitis,” the doctors wrote in a article published in the September issue of the medical journal Urology. “A brief debate ensued on whether the image could have been a sign from a deity (perhaps ‘Min,’ the Egyptian god of male virility); however, the consensus deemed it a mere coincidental occurrence rather than a divine proclamation.”

The Macrame Owl Rescue and Sanctuary Organization

The Macrame Owl Rescue & Sanctuary Organization
It is estimated that there are over 500 general varieties of Macrame Owl, with evolutions and mutations occurring all the time. The Macrame Owl is a rescue organization “dedicated to saving, rehabilitating and reviving the Macrame Owl”. Their mission: “A Macrame Owl in every home”. They also provide sanctuary services to the homeless crafted birds. The Macrame Owl is a rare species that is dreadfully declining in numbers worldwide. This heartbreaking situation is partly due to the difficulty in finding jute at local craft shops. It is further exacerbated by a lack of a sense of humour in humans for the sake of Seriousity. In-kind and monetary donations to The Macrame Owl are encouraged. Please consider becoming part of the Macrame Owl Volunteer Team, as they are always looking for “talented and humour-hearted individuals”.

There is a worldwide call to knit sweaters for oil-soaked penguins

Worldwide Call For Knitters To Make Sweaters for Penguins Affected by 2011 New Zealand Oil Spill
Skeinz, a yarn store in New Zealand is calling on knitters worldwide to make sweaters for penguins affected by the 2011 New Zealand Oil Spill. The sweaters prevent oil-soaked birds from preening (and poisoning) themselves, and keep them warm before and after they are cleaned by cleanup workers. The Tasmanian Conservation Trust made a similar request in 2001, but instead of the 100 sweaters they asked for, they received 15,000.

A slipper without a decimal point becomes a monstrous bed

Monster Slipper of the Day - The Daily What
Tom Boddingham is the proud owner of a brand new monster’s paw-shaped bed. One problem, though: He ordered a slipper. Boddingham says the Chinese company that manufactures the slipper missed the decimal point in his custom order: He wanted a size 14.5 left, but got a size 1,450 instead. “It was sent directly from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cms – the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car,” the 27-year-old from Ilford, East London, is quoted as saying. “I reckon I must be the owner of the biggest slipper in the world.” . . .
