A dozen bodies were once found in Benjamin Franklin's basement. But were you aware of the fact that multiple skeletons were found in the basement of Benjamin Franklin's London home? The bones were discovered during a 1998 renovation of the house and were identified as being from nearly a dozen people, including six children. "The most plausible explanation is not mass murder, but an anatomy school run by Benjamin Franklin's young friend and protege, William Hewson," wrote The Guardian. That's not to say there wasn't any funny business going on. "The resurrection men could deliver bodies stolen from graveyards to the Thames wharf at the bottom of the street, while there was a weekly public execution at the gallows on the other side of the garden wall."

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A South Carolina homeless man was rescued from inside the hopper of a garbage truck after the dumpster he was sleeping in was emptied into the vehicle. According to Myrtle Beach cops, 62-year-old Mark Mencini “had been in a dumpster and when the truck picked up the dumpster, he had become trapped in the trash compartment.” Around 4:20 a.m., officers responded to a 9-1-1 call from a witness who was near a T.J. Maxx store. The caller told police dispatchers that he “heard someone yelling for help from the truck’s trash compartment.” Police subsequently discovered Mencini inside the garbage truck. EMS workers transported Mencini--who complained of chest pain and hip injuries--to a local hospital for further treatment. Mencini told cops that he did not recall anything about the incident, and “only remembered being in the dumpster with his girlfriend.” (
