Many of us had no idea that the last time we left our desks would be the last time we saw our office for months. Workplaces were quickly abandoned by those who were able to do their jobs at home due to the pandemic. For one woman in Scotland, her concern over what she had left behind was quite specific. Nine weeks into lockdown it dawned on Mhairi-Louise Brennan that when she walked out of her office she left behind a banana. She tweeted: “Knowing there is a banana in my desk drawer in work, which has been there since a week before lockdown, is making me feel anxious.” https://twitter.com/StoryfulViral/status

Riding a roller coaster could help you pass a kidney stone. After multiple people reported they had passed a kidney stone while riding Walt Disney World's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride, a research team from Michigan State University decided to investigate the phenomena in 2016. They conducted tests with a model kidney and found that there was a 64 percent kidney stone pass rate for those seated in the rear of the Thunder Mountain ride. That number was just 16 percent for those seated in the front.

A woman who was hoarding gasoline tried to flee police in a stolen car and crashed into a fiery wreck in South Carolina. A Pickens County Sheriff’s deputy tried to pull over a 2007 Pontiac G6 Thursday evening after he ran the plates and found it was stolen. The driver, 28-year-old Jessica Dale Patterson, tried to outrun the pursuing deputy, but lost control of the car and flipped it over on the side of the road, according to a press release. “The vehicle immediately caught fire, and multiple explosions were heard inside the vehicle,” officials wrote. Patterson emerged from the car on fire herself, and the deputy pushed her to the ground to extinguish the flames. The suspect told authorities she was “hoarding” several containers of fuel in the trunk, which were responsible for the fire. There was no immediate word on the Patterson’s condition or charges against her. (https://bit.ly/3tOsEpB)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by RadioSavings.com
over losing nearly $400 playing slot machines, a Florida Woman told
police that she phoned in a bomb threat to a Tampa casino because she
wanted to “blow off steam.” Investigators charge that 54-year-old
Adele Belizaire used her cellphone to call the Seminole Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino Tuesday evening to claim, “I left a bomb in your
casino.” Belizaire, cops say, phoned in the threat while in her
room at a Clearwater Beach hotel. Since Belizaire is a member of the
Hard Rock’s “Player’s Club” rewards program, her phone number
was in casino records, leading to her identification as a suspect.
After tracking Belizaire’s phone, police confronted her around 4:00
a.m. Yesterday. Belizaire, the complaint reports, said she became
“upset” after losing “around $380...on slot machines.” Noting
that she has “anger issues,” Belizaire reportedly confessed to
calling in the bomb threat as a way to “blow off steam.”
Belizaire was arrested for making a false report about planting a
bomb, explosive, or weapon of mass destruction.
