  • Drive


    The Registry of Motor Vehicles has allowed a Massachusetts woman to wear a spaghetti strainer on her head in her driving licence picture as an expression of her "Pastafarian" religion. The RMV does not allow drivers to wear hats in their pictures, unless it is for a medical or religious purpose. She won her appeal with the RMV thanks to the help of an attorney associated with the American Humanist Association. "As a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I feel delighted that my Pastafarianism has been respected by the Massachusetts RMV," she said. "While I don’t think the government can involve itself in matters of religion, I do hope this decision encourages my fellow Pastafarian Atheists to come out and express themselves as I have."

    Sing along

    Singing acts as a "bonding behaviour" among adults, making it easier for people to make new friends, psychologists at Oxford University have found. A study published in the Royal Society’s Open Science journal watched how strangers’ relationships progressed over several months of creative writing, craft and singing classes. Out of seven courses, the singers became closer much quicker – a result attributed the ice-breaking "power of a good sing-song". Dr Eiluned Pearce, who led the research at Oxford’s Department of Experimental Psychology, said: "One of the key differences between humans and other primates is that we can exist in much larger social groups".

    Carrot attack

    A 14-year old girl from Henrico County, Virginia, could be charged with assault and battery after she threw a baby carrot at one of her former teachers. School disciplinary documents allege a baby carrot was used as a weapon in an assault and battery of a Moody Middle School teacher. "I don't even know how to combat the stupidity," Karrie May, whose 14-year-old daughter Aliya is currently suspended for launching the vegetable, said.
