Mongolian Death Worms - Latest Threat to Mankind!

As if we weren't worried enough about terrorism, humongous ash clouds, killer volcanoes, and other threats of all kind, the Syfy Channel (formerly Sci-Fi) has given us a new bugaboo to fret over: Mongolian death worms. (Yahoo TV takes a look at "Mongolian Death Worm", explaining the major plot points It also notes that Syfy is the network that brought us the deadly biological freak shows "Mega Piranha" and "Dinoshark." Hmmm...)

It seems that treasure hunters looking for Gengis Khan's tomb get something they didn't bargain for when they encounter these creepy crawlies.

The name alone tells you these are bad mothers you do NOT want to mess with. If not, view the clip above. Mongolian death worms look just like big, ugly, overgrown hybrids of worms and insects, and it was disturbing indeed to watch one devour a poor guy in the clip above. The mouthparts of the Mongolian death worm look kind of like a big anus, with a long inner part (similar to the "Alien" retractable head) that pops out to grab the prey out... sort of like a telescoping killer hemorrhoid.

So maybe the way to kill Mongolian death worms is to drop a 500-pound bomb filled with Preparation H on its ugly anus-head?

We can find out for sure when "Mongolian Death Worm" premieres on Syfy at 9 p.m. Eastern time. Sean Patrick Flanery ("Boondock Saints") is the primary human tasked with kicking the Mongolian death worm's ass (sorry, couldn't resist).

Lady Gaga American Idol Video - Full Performance

Lady Gaga performed "Alejandro" and "Bad Romance" on "American Idol," but the video shown on air was cut to fit time constraints. Lady Gaga was not happy about the cut (from six-and-a-half minutes to five minutes, according to Perez Hilton), so she posted a link to the video above of the full-length Lady Gaga "American Idol" video at Hilton's Web site.

Shahzad Faisal Facebook Page - Is the Terrorism Suspect a Fan of FarmVille Cows?

Is Shahzad Faisal, the man arrested in connection with the Saturday night Times Square bombing, a fan of FarmVille Cows? Faisal was arrested late Monday night at JFK Airport, where he was trying to take a flight to Dubai, and a Web search of the name "Shahzad Faisal" includes a Facebook page of a man with that name.

So is this the Shahzad Faisal? According to one news report, the Shahzad Faisal with the Facebook page is in Shelton, Connecticut, and the man arrested Monday night is said to be a resident of the state.

If it's the same Shahzad Faisal, then the terrorism suspect has 115 friends; likes the mayor of Karachi, Pakistan and a restaurant in that city called One on One; and also enjoys playing FarmVille. In fact, one of his 14 "likes" is FarmVille Cows.

The Shahzad Faisal with a Facebook page has a profile picture showing a man (presumably him) standing across the street from a Macy's store. A street sign is near him, but it's hard to read what the names are or where the photo was taken. They could be New York City street signs, and if the Macy's in the photo is the flagship store in Herald Square, that's only a dozen blocks away from the place where the arrested suspect Shahzad Faisal allegedly parked the Nissan SUV he is thought to have bought a few weeks ago.

That SUV was filled with propane gas tanks, gasoline, fertilizer, firecrackers, and a couple of alarm clocks that definitely do not look high tech (one looks like something from a child's bedroom).

NOTE: Some news reports are referring to the arrested bombing suspect as Faisal Shahzad, while other recent reports continue to show his name as Shahzad Faisal.
