A video of a Vermont man who walked into a convenience store completely naked and bought a cup of coffee for $4.99 has gone viral. Technically speaking, it’s not illegal to be naked in public in the state of Vermont. The man left without incident but the cashier still called the cops. (https://7ny.tv/2ZpTC8R)

Whispering is bad for your voice. It might seem like whispering can help you preserve your vocal cords, whether you’ve got laryngitis or are auditioning for American Idol. But researchers have found the opposite to be true. A 2006 study published in the Journal of Voice used a fiber-optic scope on 100 subjects while they counted from one to 10 (first in a normal voice, then a whisper). Researchers found that 69 of them put more strain on their vocal cords when they whispered.

Authorities say that an Amazon delivery driver stole a family’s dog in Texas and then tried to sell the pooch online for as little as $70. 22-year-old Mycah Keyona Wade surrendered to deputies in Parker County on July 16th after Amanda and Anthony Phillips reported that their 2-year-old dachshund named RJ was stolen from their front yard in Brock over the July Fourth holiday weekend. Parker County Deputy Danie Huffman told the newspaper that Wade and her boyfriend were dropping off packages for the internet giant on July 5th when they spotted the pup. Wade hopped out of a van and grabbed the dog. A landscaper working nearby pointed to the couple’s home when Wade asked who owned the dog, but she and her boyfriend left with the family pet instead of leaving him there. Wade and her boyfriend, who was not charged in the incident, allegedly were caught taking the dog on a neighbor’s doorbell security camera after RJ earlier had escaped from the couple’s home and run away. Wade was working as a contract driver for Amazon at the time and has confessed to the theft. Both she and her boyfriend have since been fired. (https://nyp.st/2GAEVIt)

A comedian at a small San Francisco venue was attacked by an audience member who was told to “stop talking” during the victim’s performance Saturday afternoon. The July 27th assault was recorded by a camera inside Mutiny Radio, a performance space in the city’s Mission district that also houses a community radio station. At the close of a two-hour open mic session, the comedian Capital Pilcrow was on stage when he briefly exchanged words with an audience member. The comedian told the man--who appeared to have been conversing with a female acquaintance during Pilcrow’s set--“I do know who you are, so shut, stop talking.” The audience member then jumped out of his chair and attacked Pilcrow, who was knocked off stage and punched several times. While being restrained by other patrons, the man began yelling. As the attacker was being shoved out the front door, he broke a window that will cost $500 to replace. Pilcrow and others injured during the melee have, so far, declined to press charges against the assailant. (https://bit.ly/2yDvqEl)
