A 32-year-old who drove his friend to a Lincoln hospital in the bucket of a front-end loader Friday night was arrested for DUI and felony theft after blocking the ambulance bay with the stolen machinery. Officer Erin Spilker said Jordan Evans had taken the $75,000 front-end loader from Sixth and Plum streets to Bryan West Campus and showed up at the hospital with a 40-year-old man in the bucket just before 11:00 p.m. last Friday. Evans was taking the man to the hospital because he was injured. Police saw a bottle of alcohol in the vehicle and believed Evans was intoxicated. The owner, Taylor Excavating, said he didn't have permission to take the loader. They arrested Evans on suspicion of felony theft, fourth-offense DUI, and driving during a 15-year license revocation. Spilker said his blood-alcohol content tested 0.184%, more than double the legal limit, at the jail. (

The total weight of ants on earth once equaled the total weight of people. Entomologists have estimated that there are at least one million trillion insects and only one percent of that number is ants, according to the BBC. And if you took all those ants (about ten thousand trillion) and put them on one side of a giant scale, you could almost put all of the people in the world onto the other and balance things out. Unfortunately, as humans have become heavier, this probably wouldn't hold up today—but it once did. Francis Ratnieks, professor of Apiculture at the University of Sussex, told the BBC this might have held true around 2,000 years ago.
