SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

A study (University of Chicago) polled married people and found that, on average, it took them just 172 days to decide that they wanted to get hitched. That’s about six months — and it’s less time, researchers found, than most people estimate they’ll need before making that big call. Surveyed singles told the researchers that they’d need about 210 days to make up their minds about their potential suitors.

“And the cocaine,” a Florida man hinted, as he was being loaded into the back of a Collier County Sheriff’s patrol car. Deputies asked him to clarify. “I have cocaine in my butt,” 56-year-old Mustapha Ouardi answered. Ouardi had called 9-1-1 three times early last Wednesday morning from a McDonald’s— he said they had gotten “his burger order wrong twice.” When deputies arrived at the McDonald’s, employees said Ouardi had been yelling and cursing at staff over his mistaken order, and they wanted him taken from the premises. The deputy escorted the disgruntled customer from the burger joint. Upon searching his pockets, the deputy found marijuana folded into a napkin. While he was being placed into the patrol car, he then admitted to having another drug tucked away. He is facing charges for trespass of a structure or conveyance, marijuana possession not more than 20 grams, and resisting law enforcement without violence. (

A man was arrested Wednesday near Tokyo for allegedly forging and sending out dozens of special popsicle sticks to an ice cream manufacturer so they could be redeemed for popular Pokémon cards by the company. 43-year-old Takashi Ono is suspected of attempting fraud after he sent twenty-five fake popsicle sticks in November last year to confectioner Akagi Nyugyo Co. The company ran a competition last year in which people could send in rare lucky sticks from its popular popsicle brand Garigarikun in exchange for Pokémon game cards created for the event. The limited sticks were engraved with the words “You win a Gari-Pokemon card,” which could only be seen after consuming the ice cream. Akagi Nyugyo contacted the police after receiving multiple lucky popsicle sticks from what was believed to be one person. The ice cream manufacturer has warned consumers of the possibility that “fake lucky popsicle sticks are being sold” online. (

Pretty shocking when you watch the video and see it happen right in front of you.” “You can see her pet the dog, and rub the dog seeing if it was vicious," Swinton told WXYZ. "Then scoop the dog up and take the dog to her car.” Police found the 26-year-old, who has not been identified yet. Charges are expected.(
