Florida man-made national news in early 2020 as police confiscated two bags of drugs neatly labeled “Bag Full of Drugs.” Two men were pulled over for a routine traffic stop but ultimately, the stop resulted in the confiscation of several different types of illicit drugs with an estimated street value of $15,450. Unfortunately, this is not the first Florida man drug story and it certainly won’t be the last.

A man in Russia survived after accidentally shooting himself in the chest with a nail gun. He was nailing down floorboards in his bathroom when he tripped and fell and fired a two-inch steel tack into his chest, barely missing his heart.
Researches at the University of Vermont studied 50 million tweets a day, scoring the “happiness” of people’s words to monitor the national mood. One consistency from the study: being outdoors — and specifically parks — make us happier. Researchers looked at anonymous Twitter data for the study and tweets from parks and after park visits were more positive. The powerful effects of nature are strongest in large parks with more trees, but smaller neighborhood parks also provide a significant boost. Their impact on happiness is real, measurable, and lasting. Tweets show that parks increase happiness to a level similar to the bounce at Christmas, which typically is the happiest day of the year.

You're pronouncing Dr. Seuss' name wrong. Dr. Seuss, the popular children's book author who is known for his rhyming skills, was born with the name Theodor Seuss Geisel. Seuss is his mother's maiden name, and their family pronounces it as "soice" (rhyming with voice). Seuss' college friend Alexander Liang even wrote a poem about the common misconception.

A 51-year-old man was attacked by a hatchet-wielding maniac in the ATM vestibule of a Lower Manhattan bank Sunday night. The male suspect whacked the victim in the head and thigh as he was standing in front of the cash machine at a Chase bank on Broadway near Beaver Street in the Financial District at about 5:20 p.m., sources said. The brute fled after the attack, but left the hatchet behind, according to the sources. He was still being sought late Sunday. “The guy that got hit in the head was screaming,” a witness said. “It’s crazy. People were shouting and we saw the guy laying down — a lot of blood." The victim was hospitalized in stable condition. (https://bit.ly/3iQcZnB)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by BetterResultsAdvertising.com
Baltimore Sun report on a strange federal lawsuit begins with a crazy
opening sentence: "Demetra Sweet didn't know, as she sang at her
husband Ivan's Baltimore funeral service in late January, that
apparently he already had been buried days earlier and miles away."
When 67-year-old Ivan Street died in January of congestive heart
failure, wife Demetra Sweet made plans to have him cremated through
Wylie Funeral Homes. Then a second woman, also claiming to be his
wife, came forward and asked the funeral home to bury Ivan Street
instead. The funeral home, according to Demetra Sweet's lawsuit, sort
of did both. She alleges that Wylie had Ivan Sweet buried in a local
cemetery, then staged a phony memorial service for her with an empty
urn. She's seeking $8.5 million in the suit. "We vehemently deny
the claims advanced by Ms. Street and assert that the underlying
matter was handled with the utmost sensitivity toward the loved ones
of the deceased," says Brandon Wylie, president of the funeral
home. The Washington Post weighs in and concludes that Demetra Street
was indeed Ivan Street's legal wife at the time of his death.
However, they were separated and living apart. It couldn't determine
the legal relationship of Ivan Street and the unnamed woman. Demetra
Street's lawsuit says the second woman presented the funeral home
with a marriage license from 1997, but one that wasn't official. She
"may have believed she was the wife," says Demetra Sweet's
lawyer, "but she failed to produce a marriage certificate with a
seal on it." (https://bit.ly/2VWFUxt)
