Just How Many One-finger Push-Ups Can This Guy Do? (Hint: Lots)
China's Xie Guizhong performed 41 single-digit push-ups in 30 seconds to set a Guinness World Record. I could totally do that, just as soon as I find the motivation to get off my couch.
Shove a Bacon Tampon Up Your Nose and It Will Stop Bleeding
From the Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology comes news that fashioning a strip of cured pork into a nasal tampon will help prevent nosebleeds for those suffering from chronic episodes. More specifically, it was used in the "treatment of [a] life-threatening hemorrhage."
One of the first things I learned when I was a little kid was to draw most of the Warner Bros' cartoons characters created by Chuck Jones. I wish I could have seen these videos by the master himself, because drawing cartoons is hard, despite how easy it looks.
Someone Tried to Send Eleven Pounds of Weed to St. Martin's Press
First rule of successfully smuggling weed through the mail—don't. If you have to break the first rule, at least follow the second—wrap the package well enough to keep in the stink. Otherwise, you'll end up like these wanna-be drug runners.
According to The Smoking Gun, a USPS worker noted the sweet smell of sticky icky emanating from two packages in a San Diego processing facility. The worker alerted authorities who confirmed their suspicions with a drug-sniffing dog and then obtained a warrant to open the packages. Inside, they found eleven pounds of weed with an estimated street value of $70,000. The weed was found amid packing peanuts and dryer sheets, which mask the smell when used in abundance.
The shipment was sent from the fictitious ABT Books to the fictitious Karen Wright who presumably worked in the mail room of the St. Martin's Press New York headquarters. The Feds of course have seized the shipment and are still investigating the matter. No arrests have been made, but 11 pounds is a lot of drugs to lose on account of shoddy packing skills.
