Two drunk pals were left stranded on an inflatable mattress two miles out to sea but they only panicked when they ran out of beer. Jackson Perry and Noah Palmer had to be rescued after strong winds dragged them two miles off the coast of Perth, Australia. But despite facing drifting out to sea - the pair saw the funny side and said they would simply “check the wind forecast” next time. The two pals hopped on the inflatable mattress on Saturday, along with an cool box full of beers, outside Palmer’s oceanside house in Mandurah, south of Perth, planning to stay close to land. However, strong winds dragged them two miles out to the ocean where they were stranded for almost three hours. To make things worse, the inflatable mattress had holes and began to sink, their phones were dying and they ran out of beer. Palmer had to jump out every ten minutes and inflate the mattress up until help arrived. (https://bit.ly/3qh6b2O)

An Arizona man found earlier this month near a water tower, his hands bound with a belt and a bandana stuffed in his mouth, had a harrowing tale for police. Brandon Soules told authorities that two masked men knocked him unconscious, put him in a vehicle, and drove him around before dumping him at the tower (in Coolidge). The kidnappers’ motive, he said, was a large amount of money his father had hidden around town. Investigators, however, determined that Soules story was false. As for Soule’s motive for lying: Police say he “made up the story as an excuse to get out of work.”
In 1961 a farmer in Wisconsin said that he was visited by the aliens who left him a gift. The 60-year-old said he saw an object land on his farm. He shared that the metallic UFO was like two reversed bowls with “exhaust pipes” on the edge of it. The UFO didn’t land fully on the ground but when the door opened the farmer came in contact with three aliens wearing helmets who seemed to be of “Italian descent.” They gifted him with some pancakes.
Several dozen people gathered beside a frozen lake in eastern Poland over the weekend to build a thousand snowmen to raise money for a sick toddler. Organizers of the fundraising event (in Korycin) hope to help pay for life-saving treatment for a 21-month old (Bartek Bojarzyński), who has a serious heart defect. The boy needs specialist surgery that can only be performed at a hospital in the United States, and supporters hope to raise over $180,000 to enable him to have the operation, scheduled for April 2.
