Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

It's all in the timing

A Peterborough couple are to marry at the 'once in a lifetime' time and date of: 12:34:56, 7/8/09.
The perfect order occurs just once in every hundred years - always on August 7, always on the tenth year.
Troy Peters and Katie Barfoot knew their big day would be memorable, but didn't initially realise the lunchtime ceremony would give them such a remarkable dateline.
Mouse builds nest of $20 bills inside ATM
A mouse was found inside an automatic teller machine Louisiana Grande, Oregon - along with a nest it had built with chewed-up $20 bills - gave an employee the surprise of her life.
The mouse, discovered Thursday, had thoroughly torn up two bills and damaged another 14 to line his nest. Employee Millie Taylor says she screamed and slammed the machine's door shut.
The bank replaced all the money that wasn't extensively damaged, and the ATM has continued to work just fine. The mouse also got a reprieve: He was evicted from his nest but set free outside the station.
Baby without shoes kicked out of Burger King
Like most restaurants, the Burger King in this St. Louis suburb has a no shoes, no shirt, no service policy.
And baby, do they enforce it.
Too much so, the company admitted, after apologizing for restaurant workers who asked a mother to leave because her 6-month-old wasn’t wearing shoes.
Jennifer Frederich, her mother and Frederich’s infant daughter, Kaylin, stopped at the Burger King in Sunset Hills on Sunday. The baby was shoeless — Frederich figured tiny baby feet were immune from the rule.
But workers told the family to leave because the shoeless baby was violating a health code. In fact, shoelessness is not a health code violation in St. Louis County.
