For starters, what about that dang headline doesn't scream legend! I'm not saying I understand where he was coming from when he decided to go live amongst mountain goats for a few days in the Alps, but I respect the initiative and the fact that he saw that sh*t through.

UK-based designer Thomas Thwaites has written extensively about his experience in a novelGoatMan: How I took a Holiday from Being Human. Thwaits was presented the award for Nobel Prize in biology alongside naturalist and fellow Briton Charles Foster. The awards obviously a spoof, are meant to honor people that make grand achievements that make others laugh and think at the same time.

Ryan Lochte finally got his punishment for pissing on the wall of a locked service station and pulling a framed poster from the wall in Rio during the Olympics and lying about it saying someone robbed him.



CNN reports that The Liar will serve a 10-month suspension and will be banned from the 2017 World Championships, in addition to monetary losses that are still being determined.





25-year-old Met's player, Wilmer Flores is a self-proclaimed Friends addict. Flores says he's watched every episode since starting the series 4 years ago.


“I don’t know. I just can’t stop watching it,” he told ESPN. “I don’t know -- on the road, when I’m home, every day -- I don’t want to watch anything else. I don’t know why. There’s something about that show."

By his second at bat, most of the 30,257 fans in the crowd clapped along to the theme song, proving we're all here for him (when the rain starts to pour).

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.
