Indonesian Boy Ardi Rizal Smokes 40 Cigarettes A Day

A video showing a toddler enjoying a cigarette is causing shockwaves around the world. Perhaps even more shocking is that the boy is apparently already an addicted smoker. The child, 2-year-old Ardi Rizal, who lives in Indonesia, smokes two packs a day, according to his parents.

They said he had his first puff at 18-months and took to it like a fish to water. Six months later, the toddler is said to smoke 40 cigarettes a day.

His mother said the boy is completely addicted, and becomes angry if he doesn't get his smoke break – going as far as screaming and bashing his head against the wall. He says he feels dizzy and sick when he's not smoking. Statistics show his habit is part of a disturbing trend. A quarter of all Indonesian children ages 3 to 15 have reportedly tried cigarettes.

The video drew plenty of disbelief from CBS 2's Facebook fans. Here are just a few of the comments our fans wrote on our wall: Mary Ann Johnson Dlugosz wrote: "Very disturbing!!! What are these parents thinking by giving this child cigarettes? MAKES ME SICK!"

Maritza Pena says: "He's 2! When did it start at 7 months? Sick! What happened to formula and teething rings?!" Michael Wumangwa Chuma thinks the child's parents should be punished: "Shame on these irresponsible parents...they must be summoned to court for gross child abuse...

World's Biggest Pen set World Record by M.S. Acharya in Hyderabad, India

World's Largest Pen set World Record by M.S. Acharya in Hyderabad, India

The pen is mightier than the sword, but a man in Hyderabad, India, has just made a pen that, in a pinch, could make a mighty fine weapon of its own.

Social studies teacher M.S. Acharya commissioned the construction of a 16-foot-tall, 1-foot-wide brass pen that he calls "Bharatiya Pali," or "India's Pen," to honor the government's passage of the Right to Education law.

The work of making the pachyderm-sized pen was done by two Hyderabad artists, Ratnam and Malikarajan, who etched various Indian dance styles and musical instruments all over it.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the trio started working on the pen in early February and spent nearly 450 working hours and 250,000 rupees (about $5,555 U.S.) getting the pen just right.

"We worked Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a total of 56 days," Acharya said. "And every penny that the pen cost has been paid from my pocket to these two artists, who have put tremendous effort and labor in completing this project.

"Since it is the token of our love and appreciation, none of us complained about undertaking so much effort."

It started with sheets of brass, cut and soldered into 10 cylindrical structures. After cleaning the surface, the artists began etching.

So what do you do with such a large pen?

Well, it's so big that writing the great Indian novel is probably out of the question, so Acharya plans to have it serve a more symbolic purpose: honoring India's new Right to Education law, which guarantees education to every child, ages 6 to 14, by making education a fundamental right. The law came into force on April 1.

World's Ugliest Dog - Miss Ellie has died at 17

                                       Miss Ellie Photo
Miss Ellie, who won Animal Planet's "World's Ugliest Dog Contest" in June of 2009 has passed away.

Ellie was a Chinese Crested Hairless dog who had a career in show business in the Smoky Mountains (at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge).

Chinese Crested dogs are funny-looking to start with, but Miss Ellie was particularly homely. She was of that "so ugly she's cute" variety of animal that seems to occur in all creatures save humans. Miss Ellie, who was about 15 at the time of her win, only had a couple of back teeth (which is why her tongue hung out the side of her mouth -- nothing to keep it in!), cataracts in both her eyes, several moles, pimples and limited hair (see article about win at Mail Online).

She'd been rescued from a poor life inside a cage to become a local celebrity. It's wonderful that the poor dog had at least a couple good years getting the attention she deserved. It's somewhat of a shame, though, that she only had 2 years. Dogs kept in small cages under less than ideal conditions seldom have long lives, but 17 is rather respectable for any dog, especially for a dog whose lifespan is supposed to be 10-12 years (according to the Dog Breed Info Center).

The Sonoma Marin Fair holds an Ugly Dog contest every year, and people come from all around to compete. This year's fair will be held June 25 in Petaluma, California. If you'd like to help pick the next World's Ugliest dog, go to the Sonoma Fair Ugly Dog Contest website and vote.
