The Bonehead Of The Day:
An Oregon couple left a gift card and an envelope full of methamphetamine to cover their tab and the tip for their cocktail waitress at the Twisted Fish in Seaside, Ore.
The shocked waitress called police about 1 a.m. when she found the white crystalline powder.
The 37-year-old woman was found to have more meth in her purse after she and her 40-year-old beau were cuffed.
Cops say "the waitress was stunned and probably offended that somebody would think she was a user of a methamphetamine."
Tip: How To Walk On Ice To Avoid Injury
With the U.S. frozen by a severe cold snap, people are walking on slippery ice and experts are saying we should walk in a shuffle motion to maintain balance.
Orthopaedic surgeons suggest people walking on ice "shuffle" or move feet slightly apart to provide better balance than a normal stride. Bending the knees slightly when walking on icy surfaces also might help.
When walking on an incline that is covered in ice, turn sideways and avoid the normal walking motion of crossing one foot over the other. It's safer to take a sidestep and bring your other foot along to meet your lead foot. Walking this way while bending your knees gives better balance.
When walking on ice, falls might happen, so the surgeons recommend protecting the dominant arm. To avoid injury to your dominant arm, hold an object or a bag in your dominant hand, leaving only the other arm to break your fall.
Be aware of your surroundings to avoid visible ice. Take care when exiting cars, buses and trains or when walking up and down outdoor stairs. Also keep your eyes open for patches of ice.
Snow Storm Hit, Woman Gave Birth.. By Herself!
A first time Indianapolis mother gave birth in her apartment during the middle of a massive blizzard.
The little girl was due on the 21st but the 1st time mother went into labor in the middle of a raging snowstorm.
She had planned a home birth, but it was for the end of January, and when she went into labor two weeks ahead of time…her husband, mother, and midwives weren't able to get there in time.
Her water broke, but instead of panic, she started her home birthing plan and turned her bedroom in to a home delivery room.
Luckily there were no complications and the baby came out crying and looking pink and healthy.
Is Your Neighbor An Alien? Could Be According To Former Canadian Defense Minister
Former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer told Russian TV that there are 80 different species of aliens living among us.
He said aliens have 'been visiting our planet for thousands of years' and are rather unimpressed with how we live.
Paul Hellyer described several types of aliens including 'Tall Whites' who are working with the U.S. air force in Nevada.
He claims that 'a couple of their ladies dressed as nuns go into Las Vegas to shop and they weren't detected'.
Hellyer first went public with his belief in aliens on earth in 2005 and he is the first high ranking politician to publicly state that aliens are real.
Most aliens come from other star systems, although there are some living on Venus, Mars and Saturn's moon.
There have been four species of aliens visiting our planet for thousands of years.
There are between two and twelve total species of aliens (although some place the number closer to 80).
Some look just like humans, while others appear more like the creatures portrayed in popular culture.
Most alien species have benevolent intentions toward humanity, although a handful have ulterior motives.
The 'federation' of alien species has vowed not to intervene in human affairs unless they are invited to.
The federation is disappointed in the way humans have treated the planet.
Aliens technology is far more advanced, but have given us LED lights, microchips and Kevlar vests.
Injection Promises To Zap Fat Cells So They Disolve Naturally & Drain Out Of The Body... What?
Who needs exercise when you can just zap and dissolve that fat away?
Aqualyx is a new fat fighting injection that is gaining popularity in our over-worked and body-obsessed culture.
The injection goes in and attacks some fat in your body causing it to dissolve and come out in your pee over a few weeks. The process completely destroys your fat cells so there's no chance of them growing back after being zapped. You'll only have slight bruising for about 48 hours after your injection.
Since these treatments are new it will take some time to find out how safe they really are, but they currently run for about $400 per injection.
