Talk about man’s best friend. Pickles was a black and white collie renowned for his role in finding the stolen Jules Rimet Trophy in 1966. Due to this, he was the proud recipient of the National Canine Defense League silver medal. The trophy had been stolen during a rare public stamp exhibition at Westminster Central Hall just four months before the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England was meant to kick off. The trophy was found a week later wrapped in newspaper at the bottom of a garden by Pickles while he was out on a walk with his owner David Crobett. The Pickles’ owner was been rewarded 6000 pound and Pickles got a starring role in the 1966 film The Spy with the Cold Nose. Pickles died in 1967 when he choked on his lead while chasing a cat.

The World’s First Heartless Man

Craig Lewis, 55, was dying from a heart condition that caused build-ups of abnormal proteins, and not even a pacemaker could help save his life. But two doctors from the Texas Heart Institute proposed a revolutionary new solution – install a ‘continuous flow’ device that would allow blood to circulate his body without a pulse.

Dr Billy Cohn and Dr Bud Frazier installed the device after removing Mr Lewis’ heart. Within a day, the patient was up and speaking with physicians. The two doctors had developed the device some time before and had tested it on nearly 50 calves.

However, when doctors put a stethoscope to his chest, no heartbeat or pulse can be heard (only a ‘humming’ sound) - which “by all criteria that we conventionally use to analyze patients”. This is proof that “human physiology can be supported without a pulse”.
