Showers really do spark creativity. Showers aren't just good for your hygiene—they're good for your creativity, too. For a 2012 study published in the journal Psychological Science, researchers gave volunteers creativity problems to solve followed by a period of rest. During that period, some were assigned demanding tasks, while others did simpler tasks that allowed their minds to wander (just like a shower does). Those doing the simpler tasks during the resting time were more likely to solve the original creativity problems.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Florida man dressed in an Easter Bunny costume has been arrested after allegedly fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run motorcycle crash. Florida Highway Patrol said they arrested Antoine Tyrkee McDonald on January 16th, as he was trying to evade authorities in the aftermath of a motorcycle crash in Seminole County. The incident began when McDonald allegedly crashed a motorcycle into a carport, damaging a vehicle underneath before fleeing the scene of the crime. McDonald is believed to have ignored a stop sign before hitting a chain link fence and flipping the motorcycle into the carport. A witness is said to have seen him hobbling away from the accident site. Police investigating the incident traveled to the registered address of the motorcycle owner, where they observed a gray SUV backing out of a driveway. They stopped the vehicle and discovered McDonald laying in the back seat, apparently attempting to avoid suspicion by dressing in the bunny costume. McDonald was injured and required assistance to be taken from the car. The costume was removed, and he was placed under arrest before being taken to a local hospital due to his injuries. He was later taken to Seminole County Jail. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A deranged Connecticut man was caught on video this week randomly knocking over cosmetics displays and destroying merchandise at a Bloomingdale’s store in Norwalk. The shocking video shows the man pushing several shelves and a glass table and then throwing cosmetics products on the floor, causing an estimated $100,000 worth of damage. The Norwalk resident, identified by police as 42-year-old Jason Gilbertie, is also accused of punching a security guard during the violent rampage, which took place Monday evening at The SoNo Collection Mall. Another guard also tried pepper spraying the man, but that was not enough to stop him. Police arrived at the mall minutes later and arrested Gilbertie after a brief struggle. He was charged with assault, interfering with an officer, breach of peace and criminal mischief. The suspect was held on $6,500 bond. (
