Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (12-19-2015)

Mike Drake is taking the concept of "reuse, renew and recycle" to bizarre extremes.

The 45-year-old Queens resident saves every single nail clipping from his fingers and toes and turns them into designer paperweights.

Incredibly, Drake is able to sell the keratin-packed paperweights for between $300 and $500 apiece.

Drake got started 11 years ago. "I used to bite my nails, and I wondered how long they could grow," he told The Huffington Post. "And then I wondered how much I might be able to accumulate."

Drake managed to get a year's worth of nails into a Ziploc baggie, approximately 1,040 clippings, not that he counted them. He's not that obsessive). He was going to throw them out when he had a sudden burst of inspiration.

"I realized I went to all that effort, and I figured, in for a penny, in for a pound," he said. "I already worked with acrylics as a hobby so I decided to make paperweights."

Buying a butt plug might be embarrassing, not to mention FREAKY. But it's not worse than getting caught shoplifting one!

Christopher Masters, 33, was arrested Dec. 10 after a manager at a Spencer's Gifts store in Vero Beach, Florida, of course, reported seeing him stick twosex toys down his khaki shorts.

The sex toys were described as an "Arouz'd screw butt plug," and an "Arouz'd stroker can", both typically used for masturbation.

The cost of both products: $29.98.

When Masters left the store with his shorts allegedly loaded with toys, store security detained him.

The security staff told police that Masters supposedly admitted that he had enough money to pay for them, but was "too embarrassed to payfor them because they were sex toys,” according to the Palm Beach Post.

Masters was arrested and taken to the Indian River County Jail and charged with one misdemeanor shoplifting count. 

Masters was released shortly after midnight after posting $500 bond -- about $470.02 more than the cost of the sex toys he was allegedly too embarrassed to purchase.

The holidays are a time to reconnect with old friends, but breaking into jail maynot be  the best way to do that.

Authorities in Indian River County, Florida, arrested a complete idiot on Monday night after he allegedly tried to break into the county jail by ramming his car into the front door and then trying to climb a fence.


The suspect, 24-year-old Patrick Rempe, was arrested when he got tangled in the fence's razor wire............

Rempe was taken into custody and treated for minor injuries.

Police said he told them he was high on the synthetic drug flakka and just wanted visit his friends who are in jail.

Sheriff's department officials estimate the damage to be at least $5,000.

Even if Rempe managed to climb the fence, he would have had to scale another fence, and then get through a locked door at the building where his friends were housed.

Mission impossible!
