What’s the Most Ridiculous Thing Your Parents Did to Save a Few Bucks?

Every single person’s parents do SOMETHING weird just to save a few bucks.  It’s a scientific fact.  My parents still, to this day, keep the house at like 65 degrees in the winter because they’d rather freeze than run the heat.   There’s a discussion right now on Reddit where people are sharing childhood memories of the ridiculous things their parents did to save money.  Here are five great ones . . .   1.  “My mom tried to convince the ticket guy at the movies my brother was 12.  He was 19 and smoking a cigarette.”   2.  “When

Police Link a Toothless Woman to a Car Theft When They Find Her Dentures Inside

This woman was just one tube of Super Poligrip away from freedom.  31-year-old Lindsey Stanley-McShane of Lady Lake, Florida stole a Kia on Friday.  Eventually she pulled over and got out, and she started trying to break into people’s homes until the cops showed up.   They realized the Kia was stolen and they asked Lindsey if she’d taken it, but she said no.  And that’s when the cops realized she didn’t have any TEETH, and they found her DENTURES inside the stolen car.   She was arrested, and since she seemed like she was on drugs, they took her

People Who Like Dark Humor Are More Intelligent?

Do you like dark comedy?  If so, you might just be a genius.   A new study out of Austria found that people who liked dark, twisted humor had higher IQs than people who didn’t.   The researchers think it takes quick, complex information processing to fully appreciate jokes about things like serious illnesses and tragic events, so it takes a sharp mind to enjoy them.   (British Psychological Society)

An Artist Knits with Ramen Noodles Instead of Yarn

There’s an artist in Singapore who knits with ramen noodles instead of yarn.  She can do about two inches an hour, and recently made a scarf for one of her art exhibits.  (Here’s a photo.)   because its almost as tall as me ~~ #knittingnoodles #knitting #art #crazyperson #whattodowiththis A photo posted by Cynthia Delaney Suwito (@cynthiadsuwito) on Dec 30, 2016 at 1:31am PST There’s an eight-minute video that shows her doing it.  And there’s another one where she explains that the idea behind it is that they’re “instant” noodles, but it takes a long time to knit with them.

One in Four People Have Secretly Gone Into Someone Else’s Facebook Account

If you’ve ever left Facebook open on your computer or you left your phone somewhere unlocked, yeah, someone went digging through it.  According to a new study, one out of four people have secretly gone into their friend, significant other, or family member’s Facebook account, and they did it on that person’s computer or phone.   The top three reasons people did it are jealousy, curiosity, and fun.  Only 4% did it because they were angry at the person.   The study also found that when someone goes onto their significant other’s profile, the FIRST thing they check are the

A Guy Returns a Library Book That’s 100 Years Overdue

Now THIS is some spectacular procrastination right here.  A woman named Phoebe Webb from San Francisco checked out a book called “Forty Minutes Late” from the library back in 1917.  She passed away right before the due date and never returned the book.   Now fast forward to 1996.  Her great-grandson named Webb Johnson was going through a box of her stuff when he found the book.  And even though he realized it was VERY overdue, he decided to hang onto it.   But then, earlier this month, the San Francisco libraries announced a temporary amnesty program, where people could

A 94-Year-Old Woman Graduated College with Straight A’s

There’s a 94-year-old woman in Hawaii named Amy Craton, who’s originally from Massachusetts.  And she always wanted to get her college degree.  She went to school for a while in the early 1960s, but had four kids.  So she had to drop out to get a full-time job.   But she recently started taking classes online through Southern New Hampshire University.  They do online classes, but they also have an actual campus.  And she graduated in November with STRAIGHT A’S.  She got her Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and had a perfect 4.0 GPA.   The school’s commencement ceremony

A College Is Looking For a Professor of Legos, and You Can Apply

Want to make over $100,000-a-year playing with Legos?  You actually might be able to pull it off, but you’ll have to hustle and probably do a LOT of lying on your resume.   The University of Cambridge in England is looking for a “Professor of Lego” to study Legos, figure out ways to incorporate them into education, and analyze the role of Legos and other toys in kids’ lives worldwide.   But there are two catches.  One, the deadline to apply is tomorrow.  And two, they’re looking for someone with an,  “outstanding research record of international stature and vision, leadership,

A Woman Is Arrested For Biting Two Bouncers at a Bar, For the Second Time

Apparently there’s something about this bar that makes this woman want to BITE PEOPLE.  25-year-old Desiree Estrada went to a bar called Fat Daddy’s in Gainesville, Florida on Monday, but the bouncers wouldn’t let her in.  So, she BIT two of them on their arms.   And that may’ve given them déjà vu, because last April, the exact same thing happened.  Desiree went to Fat Daddy’s, had an argument with two other bouncers, and bit both of them, too.   She was arrested and charged with simple battery, resisting arrest, and trespassing.   (Here’s her mugshot.)   (Independent Florida Alligator)

Do You Really Need to Wash New Clothes Before You Wear Them?

Do you really have to wash new clothes before you wear them for the first time?  The answer is YES, but maybe not for the reason you’re thinking.  Some people do it because they’re worried they might catch some sort of nasty rash someone else had when they tried it on.  But apparently that almost never happens.  Viruses, bacteria, and funguses don’t really transfer to fabric very well.  So even if someone DID have a crazy rash, your chances of getting it are almost zero.   The REAL reason you should wash new clothes before you wear them is because
