An 8 Year Old Drives To McDonalds & Other Weird News

Ever crave something so badly you’ll do anything to get it?

An 8-year-old Ohio boy who learned to drive a car in minutes just so he could go to McDonald’s for a cheeseburger, the Weirton Daily Times reports.

Police in East Palestine said the unidentified boy got a sudden urge for a Mickey D’s cheeseburger Sunday night around 8 p.m., but both of his parents had fallen asleep after a busy day. 

The boy had eaten dinner, but he was still jonesing for that cheeseburger.

The kid apparently didn’t want to wake his parents in hopes they’d spring for a burger. Instead, he watched driving instruction videos on YouTube for a few minutes before putting his 4-year-old sister in his dad’s van so they could get their fix.

The young driver managed to safely get through four intersections before getting to a McDonald’s drive-through about 1.5 miles from the house.

Then it came time to order the food.

“Whenever he pulled up to the first window, employees actually thought they were being pranked," Patrolman Jeff Koehler said.

“The workers thought that the parents were in the back, but obviously they weren’t,” Koehler explained to the Morning Journal News.

Once the employees figured out the kids were on a joy ride by themselves, the police were called to the restaurant.

Koehler spoke to the boy, who admitted he had never driven before, but learned by watching YouTube. He told Koehler he got the keys to his dad’s van by standing on his tip-toes, according to the paper.

When the child suddenly realized that taking car keys in order to illegally drive was wrong, he burst into tears. However, he and his sis did get to eat their cheeseburgers while waiting for their grandparents to pick them up.

No word on what punishment the young driver may face from his parents, butno criminal charges are being filed against him, 

A Chicago high school student was accepted into each of the 24 colleges she applied to and 23 of those schools are historically black colleges and universities.
Ariyana Davis, 18, applied to so many schools via the Common Black College Application, according to ABC News. It allows students to apply to up to 50 of the more than 100 HBCUs for a one-time fee of $35. 
The Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School student, who took college prep courses during lunch at her school, told the outlet that attending an HBCU was a priority for her. 
“They are known for producing successful black professionals,” she said. “It was important for me to go to an institution that feels like home.”
Davis shared on Twitter that she received acceptance letters from prestigious colleges including Howard University, Spelman College, Xavier University, Hampton University and Tuskegee University. The one predominately white institution she applied to and got accepted to was Eastern Illinois University. 

A Spanish dad gave traditional maternity photos what he thought was a hilarious spin with his own photo shoot.
Francisco Pérez, known to his friends as Paco, posed for some parody pregnancy photos on the outskirts of Málaga City in southern Spain………….
The series was the brainchild of photographer Martyn Wilkes. 
“I had been recently doing lots of maternity work, and I wanted to do something different to break things up and have a bit of fun,” Wilkes said. “I have known Paco for four or five years and admittedly often jested about his rather large stomach, which resembled a pregnant mother.”
The photographer came up with the outfit, painted stomach concept and flower accessories. He said his subject found the photo shoot hilarious and totally nailed the execution.
Both men are fathers and morons, Wilkes has a 5-year-old girl and 13-month-old boy, and Pérez has two daughters, 22-year-old Natalia and 26-year-old Virginia.
