Just When You Thought You Heard It All News


No comment………
According to the Beaumont Police Department, 48-year old Henri Paul Johnson decided to take a nap on a stretcher after working for sixteen hours straight.
While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year old car accident victim and carried him to the crematory.
Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.
Jenna Davis, one of Henri Johnson’s coworkers, says she heard him scream for about 15 seconds after the crematory was activated.
“At first, we didn’t understand where the sound was coming from. When we realised what was happening, it was too late. We shut down the heating system, but he was already dead.”
Ms. Davis claims that the young coworker who caused the accident was a new employee, and had forgotten to check for the toe tag to make sure he had the right body.
The police has opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Mr Johnson’s death.
Investigators have not ruled out the possibility of filing criminal charges against the employee who caused his death.
The young man could possibly be accused of criminal negligence causing death.

On this weeks episode of “Fools, Morons & Idiots”……….

“Please help I'm stuck here," read the surreal note from the captive repairman.

Imagine going to an ATM to get some cash, and instead of a receipt, you get an eerie plea for help scrawled on a slip of paper.
That’s exactly what happened to customers at a Bank of America branch in Corpus Christi, Texas, Wednesday afternoon, after a repairman got stuck inside a room connected to the machine.

Please Help Im stuck here and I don’t have my phone please call my boss,” the note read in part.
“Apparently he left his cellphone and the swipe card he needed to get out of the room outside in his truck,” Corpus Christi police Lt. Chris Hooper told The Associated Press.
The trapped man was stuck for about two hours, according to CBS New York anchors who could barely contain their laughter (above) while describing the situation.
Corpus Christi police officer Richard Olden told NBC affiliate KRIS TV that some people who saw the note initially thought it was a joke. Luckily for the repairman — a contract worker who has not been identified — someone took it seriously and called for help.
But even police weren’t totally convinced it was for real.
“We come out here, and sure enough we can hear a little voice coming from the machine,” Olden said. “So we are thinking this is a joke. It’s got to be a joke.”
Police freed the repairman by kicking down the door to the room where he was trapped.
No one was harmed, but a few traumatized ATM users may think twice the next time they reach for the receipt slot.

In the midst of the Flint water crisis, a group of students who dubbed themselves the “Dream Kings” from Frederick Douglass Academy in Detroit sought to ensure that the senior citizens of Flint were taken care of: by giving them 300 cases of clean water. The idea was actually thought up entirely by the students, which makes it even more special. 

The Dream Kings solicited donations of water for their project, and then drove the hour to Flint to deliver them to the residents of Flint Heights Terrace. The project was so successful that they plan to do it again next year, and hopefully make it an annual event.
The 45 students came to the senior living facility, some wearing crowns. A few of of the residents were overcome with gratitude for their thoughtfulness.
“The first resident was just overcome. She started crying and tearing up, and one of the students that was with our group, he got emotional as well,” said William Malcolm, the Detroit City Dream director for The Future Project, which partners up with the Frederick Douglass Academy to help with service projects.
Malcolm also says that he is incredibly proud of the students for recognizing that although they may not have everything themselves, they can still make a big impact.
Malcolm stated:
“A lot of times young people, they feel that in order to give back they have to be wealthy or they have to be in a certain position in life. The boys learned from the initiative that they can take an idea and they can impact someone else’s life for the better.” [1]
The Dream Project also hopes that the service they do can help break stereotypes, showing that African-American men can provide wonderful service to their local communities in addition to being assets.

Just When You Thought You Heard It All News

Proverbs 17:16
16 Why does a fool have money in his hand
with no intention of buying wisdom?

Many people like to flash their cash in different ways – for instance, gold and diamond mouth grills. But to celebrate his recent jackpot win, this particular fool decided to take it to another level……..
Growing up in poverty as a child, Dustin Reiter became obsessed the 2002 movie comedy Goldmember—an Austin Powers parody of the Bond movie Goldfinger in which Powers is hunting a criminal mastermind who colors his victims' man parts in gold. Now working at Walmart, the closest this fed-up and overworked employee came to his dream was stocking chicken nuggets in the frozen isle.
Reiter's lucky golden streak began during a break from his night shift. While watching videos on his phone, he saw an advertisement for a casino app offering $80 in free spins. Never one to turn down anything free, Dustin decided to test the odds with this popular New Casino Slots game. By the end of his thirty minute lunch break, the unaffected young man hit the jackpot $528,429.00 - and suddenly had a much brighter outlook on life.
According to friends, after receiving a huge lump-sum of cash in his bank account, Dustin “immediately quit his job and headed straight to the local jewelers, blinging himself up with rings and chains. But even after getting his teeth capped in gold, he never felt complete."
Dustin started by painting his genitals with a lead-based paint, but quickly decided that a simple coloring wasn't enough: he needed to take it to the next level, he needed the real gold. To complete the makeshift operation, Reiter used a professional automotive gold plater that he borrowed from a garage. Unfortunately in the twelve hours following the procedure, Dusting encountered a series of health issues that ultimately led to his death.

Drivers in Napa, California, over the Fourth of July weekend came across a surprising traffic sign warning people of “Asian drivers.”
A motorist pulled over to film the illuminated sign, which read “caution asian drivers,” on Sunday night, according to CBS Sacramento.
Caltrans officials were alerted of the hacked sign late Sunday evening after a driver reported it to the Napa Police Department. Jacala said Caltrans immediately removed the sign once notified.

“Caltrans policy is to always lock the sign control boards which also require a secret code to operate,” Jacala said. He warned that anyone who sees an altered highway sign should contact authorities immediately “as bogus information can be not only be a distraction but also create a safety hazard.”

The prank in Napa over the weekend referred to a popular racist myth: that all Asian people are bad drivers.

Passengers on a Southwest Airlines flight from Denver to Pittsburgh on Saturday were treated to an adorable surprise. Before takeoff, their captain took to the intercom and explained that a very important person was on board.

“Today is a special day,” said Captain John Richie, a former Air Force pilot who said he’s been with Southwest for 22 years. “Ever since I started with Southwest, I’ve kept track of the passengers I’ve flown, and today I’m flying my one millionth passenger.”

The cabin cheered. Richie strolled through the cabin and presented his millionth passenger with a bottle of Champagne, an autographed copy of her boarding card and an envelope of cash equaling the cost of her ticket.

“I did a little bit of snooping, and I found out how much you paid for your ticket,” he said.
