Stranger Than Fiction

Accident? I'm not so sure....

A bizarre shooting incident in April in Lee County, Georgia, wasdetermined to be an accident. Larry McElroy fired a 9mm pistol at an armadillo in his yard. He could not foresee what happened next.
The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back.According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.
The mother-in-law, 74-year-old Carol Johnson, was taken to a hospital, but her injuries were minor.

Can't Make this Stuff Up

Sydney--A new Sydney Harbor ferry will be christened Ferry McFerryface--Sydney's 2nd-favorite choice after the now famous Boaty McBoatface.

And in another piece from today's Gazette: Police in Denmark say a man is suspected of stealing 12 of Copenhagan's green public benches.

Do you suppose he was redecorating?


When the headline says it all:

"Tree-climbing, seed-spitting goats aid farming in Morocco."

I love it.


That's What She Said

"Weird Science" from theColorado SpringsIndependent:

Medical researchers have been frustrated for years at failures in getting cancer-fighting drugs to targeted areas in women's reproductive tracts, but doctors in Germany announced a bold technique that appeared to work: sending the drugs via sperm cells, which seem to roam without obstruction as they search for an egg. The process involves coating active sperm cells with an iron adhesive and magnetically steering them to their internal targets.



Detroit police opened an investigation after mummified remains were found in the garage of an occupied home.

The body was entombed in the backseat of a dust-covered Plymouth that was 25 or 26-years-old.
It appears the body had been there for years and was beyond the decomposition stage.

It's unclear to cops at this point who the dead person is or how he or she died and when.
There may be answers when the autopsy is performed this week. Police want to interview the property owner and to track down records that would show who lived in the house in the past and who registered the car.

Another True Story

Yet another story that you can't believe is real.

SANTA FE, N.M. –  The New Mexico Department of Health says dozens of its employees became sick after its holiday party.The New Mexican reports that about 70 staff members say they had gastrointestinal issues after the luncheon last week. A spokesman says more than 200 employees attended the catered luncheon at the Harold Runnels Building in Santa Fe.

I love the irony.
