Poopsicles - that is, frozen chunks of human poop and other nastiness that comes from airplane toilets and then fall to the ground - are a real thing, researchers say. And a Canadian woman can verify that for you, as she found that out the hard way last month.
From the Inquisitr's "Things You'd Rather Not Think About" news desk comes the story of Susan Allan, a Canadian woman who learned first-hand that poopsicles aren't science fiction. As Canadian newspaper reports, Allan was stopped at a stop light last month, sunroof open, when all of a sudden poop started raining down on her and her passengers. And it wasn't bird poop.
"We were parked at the lights when the ‘sky poop' starting falling. It got all over my car, it got all over (me) and got on my son, inside my vehicle. It was definitely falling from the sky."
Body odor is no laughing matter — especially on an airplane. Passengers on a Transavia flight found this out the hard way after one stinky individual made his fellow fliers vomit and faint, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing.
The Boeing 737 departed Schiphol airport in the Netherlands on Tuesday night, heading toward the Spanish island of Gran Canaria, reported the . Passengers were immediately sickened by the horrible smell, with one saying the offender "smelt like he hadn't washed in weeks" and another calling the odor "unbearable."

A "supersonic Tic Tac"-shaped UFO stalked a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier for five days before disappearing into thin air, according to leaked Pentagon report.
As reports, the reports, leaked to a Las Vegas television station, described what happened on board the USS Princeton for a few days in 2004.
In November, 2004, the "Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV)" showed up on the ship's radar, apparently hovering at about 60,000 feet above the surface of the ocean. The object then "nosedived" into the ocean, moving roughly six miles down to the surface in a matter of seconds. So fast did it move that crew members thought they might have had a close encounter with a ballistic missile.
Southeast Texas car salesman Brett Bland filed a defamation suit last week, claiming that his former boss encouraged a raunchy environment at work, and bullied subordinates in a rather unusual and smelly way – by "weaponizing" his farts against employees.
Citing court documents, the wrote that Bland sued Jeremy Pratt, his former boss at the AutoNation Acura dealership in League City, Texas, and the dealership's parent company, for creating a "sexually hostile" environment, where he allegedly used crude language and taunts toward his subordinates, and even went as far as regularly pinching the nipples of his male employees. Additionally, Bland claimed that Pratt used flatulence as a way to show workers who's boss at the dealership.
"He reinforced dominance over his subordinates by regularly entering their enclosed offices, intentionally passing gas and then laughing as they were forced to breathe soiled air," Bland alleged in his original petition in Galveston County's 212th District Court.
Desmond James had an unusual way to beat the rap on his rape charge - pulling out his penis in court to prove he wasn't the right man.
The 26-year-old James had been accused of sexual assault in a 2012 incident. The accuser claimed she was raped by a black man whose penis was a different shade than the rest of his body, so the noted that James disrobed and exposed himself to prove that he couldn't have been the culprit.

While it was a surprise to the jury, court employees reportedly knew that James was going to expose himself to the courtroom filled with people during that segment of the trial.
A shadowy species of furry, sharp-toothed wolf-like animals may be lurking in the Montana woods. Near a ranch outside Denton, a was killed on May 16 and wildlife authorities have no clue what it is.
According to a Great Falls Tribune report, the strange animal does have some features of an ordinary wolf, such as a large head, extended snout, and long gray fur. However, other body parts, like the unusually large ears and short legs, seem to belong to something else.
"We have no idea what this was until we get a DNA report back," said Bruce Auchly, information manager for .
After posting images of the lupine creature on social media, speculation about what the wolf-like animal could be ranged from being a starving grizzly cub to the prehistoric and now-extinct "dire wolf." Some believe it is a mysterious "crypto-canid species" named "Dogman" that conspiracy theorists believe is wandering the forests around North America.
Has the Loch Ness Monster been captured on video (again)? An 8-year-old girl captured what appears to be something bobbing about in the water of the Scottish lake. As Yahoo News , the footage comes as a team of scientists is planning to scour the lake for DNA evidence of the elusive cryptoid.
Laria Annand was visiting Loch Ness with her grandmother, Marie, when the two noticed light bouncing off the water in a strange way. With no boats or swimmers around, the two couldn't come up with a plausible explanation, says Marie.
"I had to do a double take because there was just nothing to explain it. I took a few pictures and then my granddaughter asked if she could take a picture. I didn't realize at the time but that's when she shot the video... I can't explain it so the only thing I can think is we have seen the Loch Ness Monster."
Kate Boyle thought she'd have some fun with friends when she picked up a six-pack of Not See Cola. Then she realized that what she was actually buying was Nazi Cola.
According to the , Boyle only realized the nature of the offending drink when she got it home and sounded it out. "Wait, that's Nazi Cola," she said.
That realization, combined with the realization that the black eagle on the label represented the German coat of arms under the Nazi regime, and the fact that the company puts out other offensive beverages with names like "Orthodox Jooce," caused Boyle to take to social media to air her grievances with the Real Soda of Utah beverage company, who puts out the drinks.
Boyle said that she was "shocked and horrified" by the company and called upon the grocery store chain to stop stocking the soda in question.
Some reboots are worth doing - a new millennial version of the Kama Sutra has been released, and its artist says that she's illustrated it to focus on female pleasure, rather than the focus on the male pleasure that the original text indulged in.
is reporting that the new edition of the Kama Sutra has been released by The Folio Society, for £395 limited edition of the original text. The difference, of course, is that the illustrations focus on female pleasure, as imagined by revolutionary artist Victo Ngai.
Ngai is known for her "fairy-tale" interpretations of classic works, and her most notable work can be found on the cover of "Norse Mythology" by Neil Gaiman (who is, as of late, best known for his book "American Gods" thanks to the hit Starz show of the same name).
Ngai has also made history because she's the first female illustrator of the Kama Sutra.
The search for life throughout the solar system remains one of the most intriguing possibilities for humanity, but so far, the search has yielded no measurable results. One scientist believes he knows the reason why - alien killer robots.
While it might sound like the name of a science fiction movie or a fresh new video game, reports that theoretical physicist Alexander Berezin of the National Research University of Electronic Technology in Russia believes artificial intelligence is why humans haven't found extraterrestrial life.
Berezin's alien killer robots theory explains the "Fermi paradox," which gets its name from physicist Enrico Fermi. The paradox exists because of the high likelihood that there is alien life somewhere in the universe and yet, there's no proof so far that such life exists, according to a report.
NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover has recently released a new batch of photos taken from its current location in the Martian Gale Crater. The images were posted online by the in Pasadena, California, which designed and built the Mars rover and is now managing the robot's mission on the Red Planet.
The snapshots were taken by the rover's Front Hazcam on Sol 2080, or June 13, and reveal a bizarre blurred shape that appears to be moving on Mars, reports the .
The British news outlet cites the claims made by conspiracy theorists, who suggest that the mysterious object could be proof of life on Mars and that its perceived movement resembles that of an animal running across the red dirt on the planet's surface.
These allegations are being made particularly by the "Secureteam10" YouTube channel, which uploaded a video playing the Curiosity rover images side by side.
