It’s against the law to die in the town of Longyearbyen, Norway. According to IFL Science, “Even if you’ve lived [in Longyearbyen, Norway] all your life, if you are terminally ill, you will be flown off the island to live out the rest of your days. If you do happen to die suddenly in Longyearbyen, your body will be buried elsewhere.” That’s because, in 1950, it was discovered that bodies in the local cemetery in Longyearbyen were not decomposing as usual because there was so much permafrost in the area. That meant that viruses could survive in the human remains and eventually infect those living nearby when the ground thawed each year.
Olfactophobia… Fear of smells.
A 47-year-old man in Beersheba, the largest city in Israel’s Negev desert, has been arrested for aggravated robbery after stealing nearly 30,000 Israeli shekels (about $8,300 U.S.) from two banks in the region. His weapon of choice? An avocado. The man entered a Postal Bank at the Big Beersheba shopping mall last month and gave the teller a note demanding all the cash at the counter. “Hand over the money in the drawer,” read the note, which was written in Hebrew, and misspelled “drawer.” The cashier reportedly hesitated, to which the man said, “Put the money in the bag quickly or I’ll throw this grenade.” The “grenade” he threatened to detonate was, in fact, a whole avocado painted black. The stunt scored him over NIS 16,000 ($4,450) cash. Five days later, the man walked into another Postal Bank branch using the same tactic. Security cameras spotted the man, wearing hats, sunglasses, and even an eye patch in an attempt to disguise himself. Using cellphone location records, police were able to track the crafty bandit.
