A North Dakota man on probation for narcotics possession was wearing a “Don’t Do Drugs” T-shirt when he was arrested for methamphetamine possession. 40-year-old Esequiel Robles was collared following a traffic stop in Williston. According to a probable cause affidavit filed in District Court, a search of his vehicle turned up a baggie containing meth and a spoon with meth residue. Charged with narcotics possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, Robles was booked into the Williams County jail. Robles was convicted in late-2019 for meth possession and was sentenced to three years in prison and placed on two years’ probation upon his departure from custody. He is scheduled for a bond hearing on January 20th and a preliminary hearing on February 17th. (https://bit.ly/2NgUXhb)

When someone says “the middle of nowhere,” where is that? A travel blog decided to find out. Some basic criteria included: Furthest place from water, smallest town where “nothing” happens, furthest place from a gas station, and furthest place from a city with a Starbucks. The absolute, 100 percent most remote location in the world is Point Nemo in the South Pacific Ocean. In the U.S. Lebanon, Kansas claims to be the center of the country, smack-dab between the Atlantic and Pacific, but that’s not the furthest place from an Ocean because it’s still nearer to the Gulf of Mexico. The absolute furthest place from either ocean is probably Langdon, North Dakota.

Pineapple works as a natural meat tenderizer. The fruit is packed with the enzyme bromelain, which breaks down protein chains, making it an ideal marinade for meats when you don't have a lot of time. But for the same reason, pineapple does not work for jams or jellies, since the enzyme breaks down gelatin as well. The bromelain is so strong that pineapple processors have to wear protective gloves, otherwise over time the enzyme eats away at the skin on their face and hands, leaving dry skin and small sores.

Lincolnshire woman in her 30s has been fined by police for driving
through three counties to get a McDonald’s meal with her sister in
Scarborough. North Yorkshire Police in England fined the woman after
the non-essential 100-mile trip to get a burger. This comes after the
force said it had issued 107 fixed penalty notices for breaches of
the coronavirus regulations since the new national lockdown commenced
on January 6th this year. Chief Inspector Rachel Wood of North
Yorkshire Police said: “Driving through three counties to get a
burger is not classed as essential travel. So, the woman, who is in
her 30s, received a fixed penalty from North Yorkshire Police.” She
added, “When this pandemic is over, we know everyone’s looking
forward to going where they want, when they want. But in the
meantime, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who continues to
stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.”
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
convicted man from Texas has been sentenced to prison for conspiring
to fraudulently obtain free Spirit Airlines flights for himself and
others, as well as making fake employee identification badges in
order to get the flights. The defendant, identified as 32-year-old
Hubbard Bell from Houston, had previously worked for Mesa Airlines,
which gives its employees free tickets for Spirit Airlines flights as
a perk. However, Bell was terminated from his job at Mesa in 2015.
From February 2016 to November 2017, Bell reportedly worked with
several other people to allegedly sell “stolen and unauthorized
information of Mesa employees,” which would allow them to book free
flights. Bell also reportedly "unlawfully used his Mesa employee
information" to book 34 free Spirit Airlines flights for
himself. Overall, Bell’s scheme led to a total of 1,953 free
flights for people who were not Mesa employees.
