A Colorado man is facing drug charges after police say he told them he was attempting to create a healthy meth substance with acai berries inside a meth lab in his garage, although a search of the garage did not turn up any methamphetamine. 49-year-old Craig William Rogers was arrested on suspicion of controlled substance possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful distribution, manufacturing, and dispensing of a controlled substance. He was released on $15,000 bond. Longmont police officers said they received a tip, including pictures of the meth lab. Rogers was seen leaving the home in a pickup truck and was stopped. He acknowledged that he had meth inside a pipe in the center console of the truck. Rogers also told officers he was making a “healthy meth substance” at his home, because there were acai berries in it, according to an affidavit. Booking documents do not indicate if Rogers has an attorney who can speak on his behalf. (https://rb.gy/fckine)

A newish word that’s come about during the pandemic is “doomscrolling” — the act of reading the seemingly endless stream of upsetting news headlines that emerge on social media in times of distress. The word has become so popular the past couple of months that Merriam-Webster recently flagged it as one of the words it is “watching” but hasn’t yet met its criteria for entry into the dictionary.
A bus on a day-long route across Germany had to pull over when the driver smelled smoke. The passengers quickly evacuated. Firefighters traced the problem to the luggage compartment under the bus: a stowaway had climbed in, and apparently got bored and lit a tobacco pipe.

The U.S. almost went to war with Canada over a pig. In 1859, the U.S. almost went to war with Canada because of a pig. Just a few years after the Oregon Treaty was signed to end a border dispute between America and Britain (which still ruled over the area that came to be known as Canada), things got a little heated on San Juan Island where citizens from both countries were located. Historic UK explains that "a pig belonging to the British accidentally wandered onto the land of Lyman Cutlar, an American farmer. When Cutlar noticed the pig eating some of his potatoes he was incensed, and in a fit of rage shot and killed the pig." Despite efforts to resolve the situation between the two men, things spread into the rest of the community and got to the point where the governor of British Columbia sent three warships to the area. The two sides continued to increase their military force over the following month until British Navy Admiral Robert L. Baynes arrived and ended things by stating that he would not "involve two great nations in a war over a squabble about a pig."

New Jersey, the Winslow Township Police Department went to Facebook
on Wednesday to alert residents of two bear sightings, and to warn
them against attempting to snap a pic with the grizzly creatures.
“Please do not, I repeat, DO NOT attempt to take selfies with the
bear,” the department wrote on Facebook, along with other safety
recommendations. Black bears are generally not known to be a threat
to humans. According to National Geographic, American Black Bears can
grow to be five to six-feet long and weigh anywhere between 200 and
600 pounds. The department went on to give advice such as not feeding
the bears or approaching the animals. It even recommended families
with homes in areas where black bears have been found in the past to
have a “Bear Plan” that includes an escape route and planned use
of whistles and air horns. (https://bit.ly/2YAdYga)
