A survey found that four in ten Americans believe that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time.
Americans spend an average of 18 full days in their car every year, so it’s not a big surprise that 64 percent of us consider our car a friend. Over a third of Americans would rather themselves get a scratch than their car, while another 15 percent would rather break a bone in their own body than have their car break down. One in five (21 percent) would rather spend an entire day in jail than have their car get totaled, and a wild 13 percent of Americans would actually break up with their partner before parting with their car. 44 percent have named their car.

Of all the things that officers with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) find every day at security checkpoints, this has to be one of the oddest. Earlier this month, TSA agents at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston saw what looked like an unusual lump inside a passenger’s breakfast burrito as the traveler went through a security screening. It was more than just unusual. It was crystal meth. Yep, according to the TSA, due to the unusual nature and size of the lump, the officers requested an additional inspection of the food item. Once the wrapper was open, the Transportation Security Offer (TSO) noticed something dark and unusual in the middle of the burrito. Because the food item didn’t quite match the description provided by the traveler, a supervisory TSO was asked to assist, and she decided to run the breakfast burrito through the X-ray. Houston Police were also involved and ended up confirming the illegal substance. (https://bit.ly/3x9W18N)

There's a decorated war hero dog. While in the trenches of World War I, the U.S. First Infantry Division found themselves unable to communicate with other troops because shellfire had damaged the telephone wires. A young private came up with a unique solution: Rags, a mixed breed terrier whom the soldiers had adopted in Paris, would carry the messages from one division to the next tucked into his collar. He saved many lives, and when Rags passed away—in Maryland, at the very advanced age of 20—he was buried with military honors.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
man tested the patience of police officers and sheriff’s deputies
in a bizarre standoff. It happened in north Austin, near the Domain,
around 11:00 p.m. A man locked himself in a car after what police say
may have been a domestic dispute. The Austin Police Department says
officers surrounded the car as the man yelled at them. After driving
a short distance, police say the man crashed into a ditch. He still
refused to get out and started revving his engine — so much so that
officers say the car caught on fire. He eventually got out of the car
and started walking away. That’s when the Travis County Sheriff’s
Office deployed its K9 officer. It’s clear from the video that the
dog bit the man several times before officers detained him. He was
treated for his injuries, described as non-life-threatening by
Austin-Travis County EMS, and taken to jail. So far, police haven’t
identified him. (https://bit.ly/3vjpJ9z)

D.C. police cars were totaled after officers decided to drag race
each other. “Yesterday two 6D scout cars were totaled because
officers decided instead of fighting crime, patrolling their beats,
or engaging the community – they decided to drag race each other on
Anacostia Avenue at 5:00 p.m. in the evening,” reads the email from
6D Commander Durriyyah Habeebullah. Sources say the email was sent to
command staff following the crash Thursday. “What does this say to
all the members of MPD who are passionate about their job and work
hard every day to make a difference. This is not fair to any of us,”
the email goes on to say. DC Police would not provide the incident
report Sunday because the department only provides traffic reports
through FOIA. Sources tell FOX 5 the officers involved, who are new
to the department, started racing each other and that they were
traveling at least 60 mph. Habeebullah said she was holding command
staff responsible to have discussions about speeding and driving
recklessly with officers. (https://bit.ly/2QAtAAz)
