Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (3-14-2015)

Unfortunately there is no shortage of stories about dumb teenagers, doing stupid things. It's almost expected. Right around the time that I was ready to give up on any teenager who didn't belong to me, I read this story.

When cheering for her squad, Desiree Andrews, an eighth grader with Downs Syndrome at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was berated with insults from a few "butt holes" in the stands.

In most instances, especially in middle school, students are worried about no one but themselves. Reputation and perception often trumps morality. Not in this case.
Ballers Chase Vazquiez, Miles Rodriguez and Scooter Terrein of the Lincoln basketball squad overheard the heckling and immediately called time out to confront the bully.

Coach Brandon Morris told Kenosha News:

One of the kids stepped up and said, “Don’t mess with her,”. Then all of the guys got together to show her support.

It’s not fair when other people get treated wrong. Because we’re all the same. We’re all created the same.

The school has since renamed the gym “D’s House”, and faith in humanity is restored.

Oh, it looks like the circus is in town!!

A woman arrested on an indecent exposure charge at a Florida Dunkin' Donuts told police that she got naked as a dare. 

Employees at the franchise said Shakara Martin, 32, walked up to the storefront in West Palm Beach on Sunday. They said she wasn't wearing a lick of clothing. Martin sat down at a table outside the store and began chatting up a man who was sitting there. It wasn't long before people began to complain.

Magdalena Rivera, who works at the Dunkin' Donuts, said that they had to call the cops because the woman was driving away business, and scaring the children, many of whom wondered why a naked clown was sitting outside of the store.

"She's completely naked, no bra... She was scaring our customers off," Rivera said.

Witnesses told police that Martin was offered clothes several times, but she refused to take them... She began apologizing when police arrived.

When police questioned Martin, she allegedly told them that she'd gotten naked as a sorority pledge stunt, according to WPBF. The name of the sorority was not disclosed. The Palm Beach Post reports that the woman told cops that the stunt was something she had to do to join a dance troupe.

Martin was released from jail Monday on her own recognizance.

There's no word if Martin is welcome back at the Dunkin' Donuts where she allegedly pulled her stunt. 

Have you ever wanted to kick yourself?
I mean, have you ever made a mistake that was so big that you would have given anything to step outside of your body and kick your own behind? Sure you have! But I can guarantee that it wasn't anywhere near as big a mistake as this dude made.

In Los Angeles A Southern California man came forward to claim a $1 million lottery prize but was sent home empty handed after saying that while he bought the winning ticket he later misplaced it, a lottery official said on Friday.

On Thursday, the six-month deadline passed for a ticket holder to claim the $1 million Powerball prize in the drawing that took place on Sept. 13, 2014, California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said.

The ticket was sold at a supermarket in Rosemead, less than 10 miles east of Los Angeles, and a video camera at the store captured the moment when it was sold to a young man with close-cropped hair.

Lottery officials in recent weeks released to the media video showing the purchase in an attempt to prompt the ticket holder to come forward before the deadline.

On Thursday, a young man visited a California Lottery district office in Santa Fe Springs and spoke to officials there in an attempt to claim the prize, Traverso said.

"They said he resembled the guy in the video, so there was a resemblance. It wasn't an uncanny resemblance," Traverso said.

Traverso said the young man reported having misplaced the winning ticket, which had five of six numbers in the Powerball drawing and won a secondary prize, not the jackpot.

Under the rules of the multi-state Powerball game, no winner can claim a prize without the ticket, he said.

"It's just an unfortunate situation because when we have people win prizes like this we want them to be able to claim them. We want to have them shout from the rooftops that they're a big lottery winner," he said.

This is the second time a California lottery ticket buyer has lost out on a prize since officials in 2012 began releasing video images of winning ticket purchasers in an attempt to find them, Traverso said.

The winning $1 million prize will instead go to California schools under the rules of the state lottery system. 

Given the fact that it's impossible to kick your own butt, I'm willing to step in and help this guy out!
