Offbeat News: New Organ Discovered, Stupid Criminals & More

“Newly Discovered Organ Hiding in Plain Sight”

After all this time, you’d think scientists would have the human body figured out, but it seems they’ve just discovered something new. According to a new study, scientists have sound a new organ hiding in plain sight and it could be the human body’s largest.

As study co-author Dr. Neil Theise puts it, the interstitium is an interconnected system of itty bitty fluid filled spaces. They’re found throughout the entire body in a “highway” like system that moves our internal water supply. As you may know, the human body is made up of 60% water and though two thirds of that are inside cells, scientists didn’t realize where the rest was flowing until now.

Where is it? The interstitium is found within connective tissue underneath the skin. It must go through further research before becoming an “official” organ. Before this discovery, researchers weren’t able to find the interstitium due to the method of research that required scientists to thinly slice tissue, which ultimately destroyed its structure.

STUPID CRIMINALS

Bonita Springs pizza delivery driver Isaac Javier Ortez got more than he bargained for on a recent delivery. When he got to the front door, the homeowners said they didn’t order any pizza… and that’s about the time that he turned around to see a 13-year-old and 14-year-old attempting to steal his car. Good thing for Ortez, the boys had no idea how to drive stick shift, so left the car in neutral and jumped out and fled on foot. Ortez’s boss has ordered him to lock his car doors from now on when delivering and Garcia and Sebastian face grand theft auto charges.
