All things that cannot be explained remain an intriguing conversation topic for many people around the globe. Some mysteries, however, are more interesting than the rest simply because of how weird they are.


Villages in general are not strange. Villages in China are also not strange. There are many remote ones in this country, but one stands out from the others. Scientists and experts are extremely interested in the inhabitants of Yangsi, situated in the Sichuan Province. The reason? Not only are there only 80 residents in the village, but almost half of them are dwarfs.

Rumor has it, according to those who live in Yangsi, that a mysterious disease befell the little village more than 60 years ago. Young children between the ages of five and seven were most affected, and the disease caused them to simply stop growing. Experts now know that stunted growth is only likely to appear in 1 in 20,000 people, so what happened in Yangsi is something very much out of the ordinary. Especially considering that historic sightings of the dwarfs claim that several hundred of them were residing in the Sichuan region at one point .

Jimmer Fredette got his long-awaited call-up by the New York Knicks, this week. He caught their attention by being named MVP of the Development League’s All-Star Game. But one person he apparently didn’t impress was Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, who called him “Jimmy” and joked to the New York Post, “I thought you were telling me we were about to sign someone.” Rock On sources say Fredette responded by saying he’s looking forward to playing with “that guy named after a candy bar.”

Fans chanted, “We want Jimmer!” in his first game as a Knick. With 1:49 left in Monday’s 27-point loss to Toronto, they got him.

Fredette entered and made his only shot, a 3-pointer. But he also fouled James Johnson for a 3-point play and committed a turnover.

Fans went home encouraged but confused.

In other words, they went home feeling Jimmered.

Skier Lindsey Vonn posted video of herself smashing her bindings with a hammer. She later explained she was frustrated after a ski detached during a race.

“I had a lot of emotions yesterday,” she said in a statement, “and should have just done boxing with my trainer.”

That’s pretty much what got Blake Griffin in trouble, isn’t it?
