Will You be Dying Your Chicks Magenta this Easter?

So tonight I looked on Yahoo and found 70 articles on their main page. And I read the interesting ones and narrowed them down to six articles. Because its a lot, I'm going to write a sentence or a couple of them for the articles and then link you as usual to them.

Toddler dies in washing machine
Tiffany Hebb of Oregon was doing laundry while her 21-month-old Ollie stayed nearby. But when she left for a few minutes, Ollie crawled into the washing machine and drowned. Now Tiffany and Chris Hebb are making it their mission to spread the news of how washing machines are more dangerous then you think. Read the full article click here.

Yeah Yahoo has a picture show of a bunch of rings made for people who get divorces. I think its silly. Especially for the prices most of these cost. Why would you spend $40+ when you can go buy a cheap one at target or Claire's for under $15 and call it a "divorce" ring. To view the odd and creepy looking rings, click here.

Exiled Ottoman Princess dead at 91. 
Neslisah Osmanoglu was an Ottoman princess who married an Egyptian prince and was forced twice into exile when both royal kingdoms were abolished. She died of a heart attack at 91 in Istanbul and is survived by a son, daughter, and grandson. To read about her click here.

Suspension Bridge hangs 1000 ft over the ground. 
The Aizhai bridge is part of an expressway from southwest China's Chongqing Municipality to Changsha city in Hunan. The bridge now makes the trip between the cities from several days to just eight hours. To see the pictures (and judging by these pictures, I wouldn't go on that bridge even if you payed me), click here.

In Arizona, trolls are now illegal. 
Arizona is trying to pass a law that would make obnoxious Internet users (aka trolls) illegal. The law states:
It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.

Violators could be charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor and face up to 6 months in jail. If electronic devices are used to stalk someone, the charges then become a Class 3 felony, with penalties ranging from a minimum sentence of two and a half years in jail for non-dangerous offenders with no prior record to 25 years.

Dying Chicks...and not just their eggs. 
A tradition that has been going on for a while has just been brought to my attention thanks to Yahoo. Apparently the practice is to dye chicken chicks different colors. To turn ordinary chicks into eye-popping neon or pink, one simply injects non-toxic food coloring into and egg on the 18th day of incubation. After several weeks after hatching, the bird loses its bright colors after it molts. And this reminds me of the chicks that just hatched in Bio. We had black, brown, yellow, and mixed colored chicks. They were adorable. To read the whole article, click here.

So what do you guys think?
