Geoffrey Mutai Runs Fastest Marathon Ever

Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds, the fastest 26.2 miles in history.

But, alas, there's a catch: Even though Mutai beat the previous record by 57 seconds, because there was a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai's time won't be recognized. In fact, 2011 Boston Marathon runner-up and fellow-Kenyan Moses Mosop also surpassed the world record, finishing only four seconds behind Mutai.

German Girl Trains Cow to Jump, Run and be Ridden

After her parents nipped her horse-owning dreams in the bud, German-based Regina Mayer didn't give up.

Instead of begging and pleading as most young ones do, she decided to take matters into her own hand by training Luna, one of the family's cows.

Mayer spent hours with the brown-and-white cow, teaching it how to run, jump hurdles and respond to commands like "go," "stand" and "gallop." The massive cow can even be ridden with a saddle.

Soccer Goalie Sues Other Soccer Goalie for ‘Muppet Show’ Insult

Jens Lehman and Tim Wiese are two of the better soccer goalkeepers in the world, having both represented Germany in international competition.

Now, Lehman is suing Wiese for telling a newspaper reporter that Lehmann should "go to the 'Muppet Show'" and be treated "on a couch."

And it wasn't as if Wiese's barbs were without provocation: They were actually in direct response to criticism Lehman has levied against Wiese when Lehman was working as a television commentator.

Boy Finds 24-Year-Old Message in a Bottle, Responds

Nearly a quarter of a century ago, a young German boy named Frank Uesbeck wrote a message, stuffed it into a bottle and threw it out to sea. This year, he finally received a reply.

The bottle was discovered by 13-year-old Daniil Korotkikh, a Russian boy who was walking along the beach with his parents when a glint in the sand caught his attention. There, he discovered a corked German beer bottle with a piece of paper inside. Fortunately, Korotkikh's father was able to read German and translated the message.

Russian Military Controls an Avalanche With Heavy Artillery [VIDEO]

The Russians aren't afraid to use the big guns in their war against avalanches.

Vladikavkaz, a region in Southern Russia, is plagued by spring avalanches, so the army uses its heavy artillery to create smaller controlled avalanches which avoid Vladikavkaz's main highway.

Using ordnance for avalanche control is actually a fairly common technique around the world, including in the United States.

This is the best video we've seen of the practice, however, and it includes a bonus at the end when the avalanche tries to strike back!

Check it out after the jump.
