Mom Tattoos 11-Year-Old Daughter

Some species eat their young. In North Carolina, they just ink them.

Last month, the Havelock Police Department arrested Odessa Clay, 30, for giving her 11-year-old daughter a small, heart-shaped tattoo on her shoulder. Clay now faces one count of tattooing a person under the age of 18 because apparently it is against the law for anyone to tattoo a minor in the state of North Carolina, even if there is parental consent.

Baldness Makes Men More Manly and Dominant

Science has just provided new hope for the bald, but it may not be what you think.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania showed students photos of similar-looking, similar-aged men—some with hair and others with shaved heads. They also showed photos of men with hair and then the same man with his hair digitally removed. In both cases, the bald guys were perceived to be more manly and more dominant. Furthermore, the study's participants guessed that the head shavers were an inch taller and 13 percent stronger than their haired counterparts.

Pee Wee Football Coach Accused of Paying Players to Injure Opponents

Kids wanting to be just like their athletic heroes is nothing new, but a Pop Warner football coach emulating the New Orleans Saints' "Bountygate" program, where players were paid extra to injure members of the other team? That's a twist. A very upsetting twist, if you ask the parents of the 10- and 11-year-olds who got the short end of this deal.

Reports made earlier last week allege that Darren Crawford, head coach of the Tustin Pee Wee Red Cobras, offered his players cash bonuses up to $50 for the "hit of the game," sometimes awarding even more if the opposing team's best player was hit so hard he had to leave the game.
