I have heard of one against peanuts and it was a gay couple, but in the end the same problem. Sheesh, those food allergies really get out of hand.

Staff on a routine patrol at HMP Guys Marsh in Dorset, southwest England, found three dead rats and later noticed a line of stitches along their stomachs, the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.

Hasn't the world of literature warned us about the dangers?

 

https://www.usatoday...ing/3287179002/

 

Surgeons from China and Italy claimed that two studies published Wednesday add evidence to their ability to treat "irreversible" spinal-cord injuries and a related controversial aspiration to perform the world’s first human head transplant.

 

Xiaoping Ren and Sergio Canavero said the new work they published in a scientific journal showed that monkeys and dogs were able to walk again after their spinal cords were "fully transected" during surgery and then put back together again. The neurosurgeons described the results as medically "unprecedented."

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ore. (KATU) – Deputies responding to a 911 call for a "burglary in progress" at an Oregon woman’s home ended up catching the culprit – a robotic vacuum that was trapped in her bathroom.

The initial call came in from someone reporting that a stranger was in her bathroom, and that the person had the bathroom door locked, the sheriff's office said Tuesday in a post online.


No word on whether deputies filed charges in the incident, but the suspect’s record appears to be clean.

Ah yes, Florida Man strikes again;

 

https://www.foxnews....-turtles-police

 

Authorities received multiple calls about a man who was disturbing the peace at several businesses in Indialantic, a town about 75 miles southeast of Orlando, the affidavit said. The suspect, later identified as 61-year-old Thomas Devaney Lane, was calling himself “the saint” and allegedly said his army of turtles would “destroy everyone,” WKMG reported.

 

Quite clearly high as a kite. After all, turtles are aquatic, so the proper term would be navy of turtles.

Well, it's been a slow year for peace. What else is out there? Award Putin for not invading new countries last year?

 

She's still more deserving than Obama.

Well old weird shit on TV from a few months ago:

 

Sunday Morning on CBS with Jane Pauly featured a segment of 'Princess' Megan Markle--there was a clip from the late 1980s or early 1990s of a show done by Linda Ellerbee as she 'focused in' on a young bi-racial girl talking about the 'lack of diversity' in dolls--and it was The Princess!

 

I was thinking about, does 'The System' just 'groom' these people for decades before they spring them on us?

A parrot in Brazil was taken into custody for warning his drug-dealing owner that cops were about to launch a raid — squawking, “Mummy, police!”

The green-feathered watchdog began screeching loudly the moment officers showed up at his home in the eastern city of Teresina, the UK Independent reported.

“He must have been trained for that,” a police officer involved in the operation told the paper. “As soon as police got close, he began shouting.”

The loyal loudmouth, whose name was not reported, was seized by cops and placed in a chicken wire cage at a local police station.

Florida Man hooks up with Florida Woman;
 
http://thesmokinggun...exposure-278495
 

Two Florida lovebirds are facing criminal charges after they were caught having sex Monday night on the sidewalk outside police headquarters in Key West, according to an arrest report.
 
Cops say that Gary Hill and Crystal Frances had shared a pint of vodka before they began trysting in public. Cops learned about the coupling around 9 PM from a female passerby who reported that a duo was poised to have sex in front of headquarters.
 
When a patrolman went outside to investigate, he spotted the 46-year-old Hill with his pants down having sex with Frances (who was not wearing pants or underwear). The couple, lying down on the sidewalk, was "actively engaging in sexual intercourse," police charge.


And they say romance is dead.

Scientists have launched a bid to observe and understand mysterious flashes of light on the surface of the moon. The ‘transient luminous lunar phenomena’ occur several times a week and illuminate parts of the moon’s landscape for a brief period of time before disappearing. Sometimes, a reverse effect which causes the lunar surface to darken has also been observed. Although there are several theories about the lunar mystery lights’ origins, they have not yet been fully explained.

20-40-60? Sounds like the safe version of having "password" as your password.

 

Tourist's lucky guess cracks safe that had been locked for 40 years
By James Rogers | Fox News

 

A tourist visiting a small museum in Canada stunned onlookers recently when he managed to crack a safe that no one had been able to unlock for decades.

 

Stephen Mills was on a tour of the Vermilion Heritage Museum in Alberta with his family when he was shown the 2,000-pound safe, which is part of the museum’s collection, the Vermilion Standard reports.

 

The safe was donated to the museum in the mid-1980s and had previously been used by the town’s Brunswick hotel, which closed in the 1970s, according to CBC.

 

However, the safe had not been opened since the 1970s and no one knew the code. Multiple attempts to crack the code over the years had been unsuccessful, according to the Standard.

 

Cue Stephen Mills, who jokingly put his ear to the lock and then turned the knob a few times. To everyone’s amazement, the door opened.

 

The BBC reports that the dial numbers on the lock run from zero to 60, so Mills used the combination 20-40-60. "Typical combination lock, three times clockwise - 20 - two times counterclockwise - 40 - once clockwise - 60, tried the handle and it went," he told the BBC.

 

Sadly, there was no hidden treasure inside the safe. Instead, Mills found some papers from 1977 and 1978. One of the papers was a pay sheet and the other was part of a restaurant order pad, according to the BBC. On the pad were receipts for a C$1.50 ($1.12) mushroom burger and a C$1 ($0.75) packet of cigarettes.

 

“Yes our safe was opened. How exciting,” confirmed the museum, in a Facebook post, which included the front page of the Vermilion standard.

 

The museum is enjoying its time in the spotlight thanks to Mills’ safe-cracking skills. “Our little museum is getting some National attention this is great,” the museum added, in a subsequent Facebook post.

 

On his Facebook page, Mills was getting plenty of praise for solving the mystery of the museum's safe. "What luck? Well done young man," wrote one commenter. "You'll be the next 'oceans 14'. Awesome," quipped another.

 

The safe is believed to have been bought in 1907, according to the BBC.

 

Citing University of Toronto Statistics Professor Jeffrey Rosenthal, author of “Knock on Wood: Luck, Chance, and the Meaning of Everything,” the BBC reports that the chance of correctly guessing the combination is 1 in 216,000 (assuming that the safe numbers run from 1 to 60). However, given that the safe used a combination lock, this could increase the chance of success to 1 in 8,000.

 

Canada continues to reveal its rich history. Last year, for example, a mysterious underground vault, was discovered on the grounds of the Nova Scotia Legislature in Canada.

 

Last year, archaeologists also confirmed that a rare copper arrowhead discovered on a remote Canadian mountain is almost 900 years old. The arrowhead, which is at the tip of a perfectly preserved antler arrow, was found sticking out of an ice patch in Canada’s Yukon Territory in 2016.
