Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (2-8-2014)

love writing "Just When You Thought You Heard It All News" every Saturday because I always manage to find a story that is more insane than the last, and this may be the most insane story ever.

Conspiracy theorist's claim that the snow that fell on Atlanta last week wasn’t actually snow. It’s unclear what these folks think the powdery white stuff was,but some of the claims involve chemtrials (of course!), mind-altering chemicals, and nanobots. Of course most of us have no idea what those are. But I guess the loonies do. 

The depth of the fall was only 2 inches, but for various reasons this caused massive trouble across the city, stranding people and leading to general chaos.

Here is where it gets weird. Some people went outside and made snowballs. Then and I have no clue who would think to do this in the first place, but there you go they held a lighter to the snowball. What they claimed then is that the snow didn’t melt and drip away as you’d expect. That’s odd enough, but then they saw scorch marks on the snowball! Ice can’t burn, so why were there black streaks on the snowballs? I believe psycho's who are not used to snow in the Deep South are capable of using irrational reasoning to justify their bewilderment, and making us all laugh in the process.

Teenagers do dumb things, and so do adults. The difference is that most adults don't post pictures of the dumb things that they do on Instagram.

Remember funeral selfies? Well this is worse.

A senior at Clements High School in Limestone County, Ala., faces disciplinary measures after she snapped a selfie witha dead body and posted it to Instagram. 

The female student, whose name has been withheld, took a picture of herself smiling next to a cadaver intended for medical use during a senior anatomy class field trip to the University of Alabama at Birmingham's biology department.

Maybe this girl is despatate for a friend. Who knows?

The student removed the photo from her Instagram feed, but a classmate took a screen shot of it and showed her sister, who contacted the school.

The UAB biology department told the station that "sheets were not supposed to be removed from donated bodies and that under no circumstance were students or any other visitors supposed to have cell phones or recording devices on hand during the tour."

"The university is understandably upset with this incident and we want to preserve our relationship,” Karen Tucker, Limestone County School Board Director of Public Relations and Technology, said, according to UPI. "We are in the process of deciding on the discipline that will occur.”

I really, really, really don't get these people who find money and give it back.
Haven't they heard the phrase, "Finders keepers, loser's weeper's."

Tyler Gedelian, the manager of a Goodwill outlet in Monroe, Mich., says he's used to finding loose change, used tissues, and old grocery lists in the pockets of donated clothes.

But last Wednesday he found an envelope with more than $43,000 stuffed inside the pocket of a robe.

The 29-year-old didn't hesitate to do the right thing with his find, though. He called the police and returned the money, according to the Monroe News.

“My biggest concern was getting the money back to the rightful owner,” he told the paper. “I certainly can’t imagine losing that kind of money. I was so nervous having so much of someone else’s money.”

Police tracked down the money's owner, who then paid Gedelian a visit to personally thank him for his honesty.

"It was very humbling," Gedelian told the station. "Very nice."
