I hate to be the one to break it to you, but new research suggests that French fries may be linked to depression. A research team in China found that frequent consumption of fried foods, especially fried potatoes, is linked with a 12% higher risk of anxiety and 7% higher risk of depression than in people who don’t eat fried foods. The link was more pronounced among younger consumers. Fried foods are already known risk factors for obesity, high blood pressure and other health effects, but these results “open an avenue in the significance of reducing fried food consumption for mental health,” according to the researchers.

A German court said that a landlord sunbathing naked in the courtyard of his building wasn’t a reason for his tenants to reduce their rental payments. The case involved a building in an upmarket district of Frankfurt, which included an office floor, rented by a human resources company. The company withheld rent because it objected to the landlord’s naked sunbathing. In response, the landlord sued. The court rejected the company’s reasoning, finding that “the usability of the rented property was not impaired by the plaintiff sunning himself naked in the courtyard.” In a statement, it said that it couldn’t see an “inadmissible, deliberately improper effect on the property.”

Other notables: a toy poodle, a fog machine, ankle monitor, 16 ounces of fake blood, a printer, a remote-control vibrator, and a pin of Jesus holding a slice of pizza. A few more? A Statue of Liberty green foam crown, a lightsaber, hamsters, 2 painted rat traps, a power of attorney document issued by the Turkish consulate, pet turtles, a slab of bluefin tuna, a slushy machine, and a fake tooth.
