Dear John,

Sometimes I just despise social media. A friend was complaining that her neighbor's dog was stolen. The dog was turned into the dog pound (or whatever they call it) and by the time they found out the dog was there, it had been adopted out to another family. Everyone online was being pretty mean towards the place that adopted out the dog. That's what they do. Then she explained that the dog was taken out of her car at a laundromat. This all happened on hot summer day. I pointed out that someone may have been meaning well by “rescuing the dog” from a hot car. This comment was not taken very well. The “angry mob” was not too kind to me. I know there is nothing I can do to make them understand this, but I wanted to see your thoughts on this. If you saw a dog in a car on a hot day, would you leave the dog in there? Or would you call the dog pound? Am I way off base by thinking this is probably what happened?

A nightclub patron relieved himself into a commercial ice maker early Saturday, according to Florida police who arrested the intoxicated urinator for disorderly conduct. Investigators say that 28-year-old Michael Williams was spotted “urinating inside the ice chest used to distribute ice throughout” 260 First, a St. Petersburg nightspot. After relieving himself around 2:30 a.m., Williams reportedly resisted as security guards sought to boot him from the club, where a “First Friday” party was winding down. The bash was advertised as “Trendy with a touch of class” and featured two DJs, including Spindiana Jones. When police arrived at the nightspot, they arrested Williams on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. After a pat down turned up a bag of marijuana in Williams’s pants pocket, cops tacked on a misdemeanor possession charge. Williams was booked into the county jail, from which he was released late Saturday morning after posting $400 bond. (

Earth Used to Be Purple. At least, that’s one scientific theory based on the idea that ancient microbes may have relied on a molecule called retinal, rather than chlorophyll, to absorb the sun’s rays. Retinal (which can be found in organisms such as halobacteria) absorbs green light and reflects back red and violent light, creating a purple color.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
Police say that a New Hampshire woman tried to frame her neighbor for assault — using fake “vampire blood” and makeup to create bogus injuries. 20-year-old Christie Benoit of Manchester called cops around 9:40 p.m. Monday and reported that she had been attacked by her neighbor. When officers arrived at her Prospect Street residence, Benoit told them that her neighbor had broken down her door, punched her, and scratched her. Police found the inside of Benoit’s apartment ransacked with couch cushions on the floor, the coffee table pushed aside, and what appeared to be blood splattered in the living room. When police took a closer look at the red substance on the floors of the apartment, they determined that it was “fluid not consistent with blood.” Police said a plastic tube of “vampire blood commonly used at Halloween” was found inside the residence and police discovered that the blackness around Benoit’s eyes was only makeup. As a result, Benoit was busted and charged with falsifying physical evidence and giving a false report to law enforcement. She’s scheduled to appear in Hillsborough Superior Court on August 22nd.

A Florida man is facing charges for allegedly driving a golf cart through the front doors of a Walmart Supercenter last Thursday and hitting several shoppers before crashing into a cashier register. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says the incident began when Michael Hudson blocked the entrance to Walmart's liquor store with the golf cart and demanded to talk to a manager. When deputies arrived to talk to him, they say Hudson took off to the store's main entrance with people running to avoid being hit. The golf cart was driven into the store with deputies running behind on foot. Officials say Hudson hit several people before crashing into the checkout area. He was hurt in the crash and taken to the hospital. Officials say he faces multiple charges, including aggravated assault with a motor vehicle and aggravated battery. (
