A Florida man was shot by a mother of three after deputies say he broke into her Deltona, Florida home early Tuesday morning, March 31st because he thought that dinosaurs were chasing him. Officials with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said this happened at a home on the 2600 block of Libby Court. According to deputies, 32-year-old Joseph Roberts tried to break into the home around 5:45 a.m. by shattering a front window. “The woman inside, a 42-year-old mother with several teenagers in the house, called 9-1-1, saying, ‘I don’t want to shoot him, but I’m going to have to! Get out of my window! Get out of my window!'” Sheriff Mike Chitwood said during a press conference that the mother gave White several verbal warnings to leave. When he didn’t, she opened fire. “He told us that the dinosaurs were chasing him and he thought he got some bad weed,” said Chitwood. Chitwood added that they were seeking an enhanced penalty for committing a burglary during a national emergency. (https://bit.ly/2wNcoOw)

France has a dozen time zones. The country with the widest stretch of land, Russia, spans 11 different time zones. France, though, technically has the most, clocking in at 12—but that's due to the fact that its territories are dispersed in various parts of the world. The U.S. ties with Russia in second, but not all time zones are inhabited. So, Russia is the only place in the world where one citizen could be waking up at 8:00 a.m. and another could be going to bed at 11:00 p.m.
