Fancy some eggs, or wanna slay like Bey for a tenner? Then check out Facebook's new Marketplace, which quickly went from innocently selling baby photoshoots, to a used car (with no brakes), to selling drugs to your Mom.

A quick look locally and we found a real gem:

Other people have found live hedgehogs and snakes...

There's also a snowsuit for your baby, I mean cat, no, I mean baby cat:

...or a passage through time:

Or some lamb:

A yurt for your bird...

...and a creepy AF clown toy:

This is already my favorite place to shop and it's only been open two days.

For the first recorded time, on the morning of Sept. 1, 2016, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), caught both Earth and the moon crossing in front of the sun, creating a double eclipse.

Check out the deets here:

I wonder if they could see this in Sweden too...

Jay Jones of the Chicago Tribune lucked into finding what could be the secret recipe of "11 Herbs and Spices" that make up Kentucky Fried Chicken. What do you think, could this be the real deal:

Apparently white pepper was super rare back in Kentucky in the 50's, so that was a HUGE secret back then.

Who knew anything white was kept a secret in Appalachia?

If you try it, let us know how it compares to the real thing.

Ever wonder how your Grandpa would compare with an Olympian at their own sport?

Well, some scientists did, and they set up an experiment with seniors doing the same activities as Olympians and then measured the difference between the Olympian's record and the centenarian's. Specifically, Usain Bolt, who ran the 100-metre in 9.58 seconds...

...with, say, Donald Pellman, a competitor in the 100 to 104 age-group, who did the same event in 26.99 seconds, which was only a 64.5 percent decrease in performance compared with Bolt.

The centenarian athlete who showed the lowest percent decrease in performance between an Olympian and himself was Robert Marchand, a Frenchman, who holds the world record for his age group in 1-hour track cycling. He cycled only 50.6 percent slower than Bradly Wiggin's record.

After 40, our performance decreases by about 10 to 15 per cent per decade usually, so you'd better start running now if you want to catch these Grandpas.

Owen Wilson plays really similar characters in almost every movie he's in, even when he's playing Woody Allen.

It should come has no surprise then that he says basically says the same things in every film as well. It's all some combination of about 15 different words.

It must be nice for Wilson that he doesn't have to memorize very many lines.

The best thing is this isn't the first Own Wilson mash up. The creator behind this video has done several more. It's tough to decide which is best.

They sure are all incredible.

So this is the age we live in -- Maine state Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is an avid World of Warcraft player, and she's catching all kinds of hell for it from her Republican opponents.

Lachowicz is being called out for her "time-consuming double life," and her opposition has even gone so far as to dig up forum posts that are proof of her "crude, vicious, and violent" behavior.

Putting aside Lachowicz' actual legitimacy as a candidate for a minute, what's notable is the way political vetting has extended to the virtual world -- should politicians be forced to maintain constant professionalism online, or should the public forgive this sort of behavior?
