Scientists Discover Ancient Loch Ness Monsters Suffered Arthritis

Even ancient prehistoric creatures suffered the ravages of old age, as scientists studying the remains of an ancient Loch Ness Monster-style creature known as a pliosaur showed evidence of arthritis in its jaw bones.

Film Crew Leaves Michael Caine Locked in Attic Overnight

Acting legend Sir Michael Caine will be more careful about where he decides to catch 40 winks from now on.
