Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Teen says gun is safe so he takes it and .... guess what?
A friend told the 15-year-old Ellenton teen that the gun was dangerous and to put it away.
Did the kid listen?
Nah. He wanted to prove that the gun was safe.
So he pointed the 9mm Ruger handgun at his foot and pulled the trigger.
Now he has a hole in his foot.
Lucky it wasn't his brain.
5 Old men + porn theater = busy hands.
Look at it this way: At least they weren't at an AARP meeting.
No, when five men -- ages 59 to 79 -- were exposing themselves and masturbating, they were watching a porn flick at a porn theater.
Problem was, the cops were there, too. They were working an undercover operation at a south Manatee movie house.
The cops saw the illegal behavior during a visit to C.J.’s Adult Movie Theater.
The guys were all arrested on misdemeanor charges.
Don't know if they got to see the movie's climax.

Then, she confessed to having a baggie of marijuana, which she "retrieved...from her rectum," a deputy wrote.
The woman was released and told to contact an investigator later. The marijuana was kept as evidence.

cases in which smugglers had concealed cocaine underneath casts but this was the first time officials had seen a cast made entirely of compressed cocaine. It weighed about a kilogram (2.2 pounds), he said.
Police detected the drug by spraying the cast with a chemical that turns bright blue when it comes in contact with cocaine, Nin said. The man was taken to a hospital after the cast was removed.
Using your debit card during robbery not a good idea
Would-be robbers take note: Don't use your debit card during a holdup.
A Charleston, West Virginia man who police say attempted to rob a convenience store instead ended up buying a soft drink with his debit card — ultimately leading to his arrest.
Shawn Thomas Lester, 33, told the store clerk Monday he had a gun and wanted all the money in the register, police said. But the suspect got flustered when a customer walked in and the clerk told him to pay for the soft drink.
Lester handed over his debit card, then signed the receipt "John Doe" and left without any cash.
Police traced the debit card and found Lester, of Charleston. He told police he was only joking when he said he had a gun and demanded money.

Man gets £90,000 after suicide attempt
A man who tried to commit suicide has been paid £90,000 compensation after he sued the hospital which saved his life.

If the woman you marry refuses to stick to a budget while planning a wedding.... just think how she'll be when you're living together and that she has a credit card. Hell.
