SO what news articles made the “stories of the day” for you this week? We compile some choice SOTDs that should put a smile on your face as we prepare for the weekend. We start off here in London, at the Olympics.
CAMERAS DONT LIE
The London Olympics are now in full swing and the competition is heating up.
Much as all olympians * with the exception of weightlifters and Ricardo Blas Jnr *, look all toned up and buff, we discovered this week that some do look like the rest of us mere mortals…at certain times.
Have a look at these pictures of divers as they tumble through the air. From the other side of small screens, it may seem as if divers are pulling some really graceful stunts with ease, but the zoomed lens of a camera has exposed what a task it is.

Spain’s King Juan Carlos is the undisputed fall
guy king. Juan has tripped and fallen while visiting army headquarters in Madrid, reports from the Spanish capital say.

Scientists made the surprising discovery after comparing the

A German team led by Professor
Matthias Epple, from the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany found
that despite the teeth of the top ocean predator being coated with
super-tough enamel, they are no stronger than the average human’s.
The research, published in the Journal of Structural Biology, could
assist the design of stronger and longer-lasting dentures.
Open wide, and show ‘em with pride!
The next video is evidence that multitasking is meant only for women, as us men are just crap at trying to do more than two things at a time.
