When Louisiana cops yesterday found a “clear crystal-like substance” inside a plastic Walmart bag in his pocket, John Combs did not, like some suspects, claim it was a laxative or sugar and corn starch to use in baking a cake. No, the 47-year-old Combs explained to police that the substance was “salt which he had to treat an in-grown toenail.” Turns out it was methamphetamine. After spotting Combs--who was carrying a large wooden stick--walking in the middle of a West Monroe roadway around 4:25 a.m., a cop asked Combs to put down the stick and then “patted him down for any more possible weapons.” During the frisk, Combs reportedly sought to keep the patrolman from searching a pants pocket. While home remedies for an ingrown toenail can include soaking the foot in a warm Epsom salt bath, the cop who examined Combs’s purported salt “identified the substance as methamphetamine.” Combs was arrested for possession of a controlled dangerous substance. He was booked into the Ouachita Parish jail on the felony charge. (

Bees sometimes sting other bees. Bees are notorious for their stings, but humans aren't the only ones who experience this pain in the neck (or the arm, or the leg…). In protecting their hives from outsiders, some "guard bees" will stay by the entrance and sniff the bees that come in, says Marianne Peso from the biology department of Macquarie University. If there's a rogue bee from another hive trying to steal some nectar, the guard bee will bite and even sting the intruder.
