A Portland man now faces felony criminal charges after police say he created a homemade bomb containing dog feces and tricked a former friend into setting it off. 48-year-old Robb Alexander Stout, 48, placed the bomb into a plastic tool box and filled the box with dog feces he’d collected from his dog and dogs that had defecated around a courtyard. Police say he then set the toolbox up to explode upon opening. Stout admitted to police that he had set up the device because he was angry at his former friend for failing to return something of his. One of the things he and his friend had liked to do together was watch YouTube videos of people pulling pranks. Stout was arraigned Friday in Multniomah County Circuit Court on a felony charge of unlawfully manufacturing a destructive device. Police who searched his home say they found methamphetamine and a sawed-off shotgun -- leading to more charges.

Hummingbirds Can Fly Backwards. As if these animals weren’t already cool enough—with their ability to beat their wings 80 times per second—they can also move forward and backward with the same speed and efficiency. Scientists studying the phenomenon filmed the fast birds as they moved toward a feed and the researchers blasted air, pushing it backwards and leading it to adjust its direction with ease.
