A human heart has been found in a plastic bag.

Paramedics in Norwalk, Ohio, found the organ in a field while they were passing time outside Norwalk's Friendship Food Store. Speaking to Cleveland 19 News, Sergeant Jim Fulton of the Norwalk Police Department said: "This is pretty unusual. We have no idea where it came from. I talked to the Lucas County coroner and she seemed to think that it hadn't been in that field very long. It could have possibly been frozen prior to that." The police added that they haven't found a body that could be missing a heart, but they're investigating where the organ could have come from. Authorities have also stressed that the public should not be concerned. Jim added: "We don't want the public to be worry. Like someone ripping out people's hearts - we don't think that's the case here."

A'black metal' musician has accidentally won an election after posing with a cat.

Gylve 'Fenriz Nagell' - a member of alternative band Darkthrone - signed up to run for his local council in Kolbotn, Norway, as a joke and was annoyed when he found out he won. He said: "My campaign was a picture of me holding my cat saying, 'Please don't vote for me'. They called and asked if I wanted to be on the list of backup representatives. I said yeah, thinking I would be like 18th on the list and I wouldn't really have to do anything." But the picture of Gylve and his cat, called Peanut Butter, had a tempting affect on voters, and he now has to serve on his local council for two years. He told "Basically, I have to step in when the usual people who go to the big meetings are sick or something. I'm a pillar of my community."

A toilet made of solid gold has been opened for public use.

Members of the public can now use the fully functional 18-carat bog for the price of entry into the Guggenheim museum in New York. The loo was created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, who named his interactive art exhibit 'America', and says his creation is about "ultimately reminding us of the inescapable physical realities of our shared humanity". The Guggenheim museum said: "Its participatory nature, in which viewers are invited to make use of the fixture individually and privately, allows for an experience of unprecedented intimacy with a work of art. [It's about] making available to the public an extravagant luxury product seemingly intended for the one percent."

Experts have warned that the rise of the sex robot could cause psychopathic disorders.

The bizarre life-size gadgets are in serious development, but sexologists - who offer psychosexual therapy - believe that having sex with cyborgs could pose a serious danger to humans. Sexologist Lev Shcheglov told Sputnik News Online: "Sex with a robot is just a fake imitation. And it can lead to psychopathic disorders and isolation. Sex with robots won't bring into a person's life the emotion effect that gives us a true communion." The expert also argued that over time, having sex with robots would "end badly" as there's none of the emotional connections that humans need in their lives.
