Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (1-16-2015)

A woman apparently found all the comforts of home at a Michigan department store, where she lived for two days before her "eviction." Well, I wouldn't necessarily call Walmart a department store. You can't buy tires and steak at Macys or Belk.

The unidentified and unwanted tenant is a 45-year-old woman who "moved into" a Walmart in Grand Blanc Township on Jan. 6, with no plans to move out.

She was living with her son but he reportedly got kicked out because of an alleged drinking problem.

The woman was able to blend in with other customers for the first couple of days, according to Detective Matt Harburn of the Grand Blanc Township Police Department.

" She'd just meander near the store all day." Harburn said. "At night, apparently she'd go into the bathroom and sleep."

On Jan. 8, store managers were looking at surveillance video and noticed the woman had been there for two days.

They tried to get the unwanted tenant to leave several times before finally calling the police.

"When I first made contact with her she was sitting in a chair, she had her laptop in her lap with headphones in," Detective Matt Harburn said.

At first, the woman was uncooperative and told police she had nowhere to go.Officers noticed she had a light jacket unsuited for the cold weather.

She was slapped with a disorderly person ticket and taken to the Grand Blanc Township Police Department where she was picked up by a relative.

Walmart employees said that it takes customer safety very seriously and the incident did not put customers in jeopardy.

Some things just should not be toyed with. Things like, ahhh, I don't know, the holocaust, slavery, or 9/11 just to name a few. 

When John Denno was assigned a school report on the Holocaust and the Nazi rise to power, the 16-year-old from Liverpool knew he had to provide visuals, but worried that his artistic skills would drag down his grade.

 So this genius decided to make a Hitler Lego figure.....

Denno decided to utilize his LEGO collection to create a 3-dimensional depiction of the fascist era from Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933 to the Allied liberation of the concentration camps in 1945 at the end of World War Two.

 A man searching for his wallet in a trash bin in Northern California was scooped up by a garbage truck and taken on a long, smelly, ride. 
I wonder if he checked his back pocket first!
The man survived the ride in the rear of a truck. Yolo County Sheriff's Lt. Martin Torres said the man, whose name was not released, was inside a garbage bin when the truck made a pick-up on Tuesday. The man told police he used lumber in the truck to reach the top of the garbage pile to better avoid the compactor. He was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for complaints of back and neck.

“The man said he was stuck in the truck for about an hour, but estimates show it was more like 3 or 3 1/2 hours,” Torres said. “The truck made several other pick-ups before arriving at the landfill, where the driver saw what he thought was a super-sized rat. then he realized it was a man crawling out of his trash pile.”
