Because the world can get overwhelming and your blood pressure needs a break, here's a story about a Facebook Page that features dogs encountered by UPS drivers.

Where Are The Parents? Out Dinner, Obviously

posted Oct 19, 2017, 4:30 AM by Ryan Quinn

Occasionally you'll hear of teens throwing a party while the parents are away.  Perhaps you were that kid at one time. But I bet you never did this.

A bunch of teens in Parker, Colorado broke into a house that was on the market to be sold.  They threw a rather  raucous party. But here's the thing. This wasn't a house that was up for sale and the owners were living somewhere else. The owners were only out to dinner.  That's, what, a couple of HOURS away? How do things get that out of hand that quickly? 

10,000 Nuts Is A Lot - Even For A Squirrel

posted Oct 19, 2017, 4:07 AM by Ryan Quinn

While it's no secret that squirrels really like nuts, scientists have confirmed that the animals' seemingly scatterbrained pursuit of them actually hides their sophisticated ability to categorize what they find.

At issue is a mental practice known as "chunking."

In the same way you may file your incoming emails by department or deadline, squirrels actually sort the nuts they find by size and type, into something akin to sub-folders, according to researchers at UC Berkeley.

"Squirrels may use chunking the same way you put away your groceries, adds Lucia Jacobs, the study’s senior author. "You might put fruit on one shelf and vegetables on another. Then, when you’re looking for an onion, you only have to look in one place, not every shelf in the kitchen."

Such categorization comes in handy considering the average squirrel can squirrel away as many as 10,000 nuts in a year, the scientists say.

Just The Tip

posted Oct 16, 2017, 5:06 AM by Ryan Quinn

A Man lost the tip of his finger at a Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert and is now going to trial over it and... wait, lost what where?

Apparently it was an altercation between the man and a guy who pushed the victim's wife while in a dispute over people blocking the view of the handicapped section at the Rose Bowl, and in the scuffle, the finger was injured

And the suit isn't even against the performers. instead the suit is against the city, the stadium, and the security firm, and you could ask if those defendants should be liable when a concertgoer misbehaves.  I don't think so, but we'll see.

Stranger Things Costume Draws Online Backlash

Ick or treat?

The Netflix hit show Stranger Things is sure to provide some costume inspiration this Halloween, but some online retailers are raising eyebrows with a "sexy" take on one of the series' central child characters.

The "Upside Down Honey" costume is based on Millie Bobby Brown’s onscreen character, Eleven, but is intended only for adults.

It features a short light-pink baby-doll dress with a ruffled bust, thigh-high white socks, a bomber jacket and accessories.

Although there do not appear to be child-sized versions of the costume, some critics on social media claim the design sexualizes a child star. Brown was 12 at the time of filming Stranger Things and is now 13.

One retailer selling the costume, Yandy Lingerie and Costume Company, told ABC News in a statement, "We don't take ourselves too seriously and neither do our customers."

"The Yandy girl strives to be the talk of the Halloween party," the company statement said. "And we've found these topical, pop culture inspired costumes with a fashion-forward twist are always a fan favorite year after year."

Physically revealing costumes for adults based on fictional or real-life characters are not new. There are also costumes modeled on the Harry Potter character Hermione Granger, the It clown monster Pennywise and first lady Melania Trump.

Taco Bell is Forever 21?

posted Oct 16, 2017, 4:36 AM by Ryan Quinn

You are what you eat and now what you eat is ready-to-wear. Taco Bell now has a fashion line.

The "hot" (get it?) new clothing collaboration between Taco Bell and Forever 21 has fans of the two chains drooling.

The "fast-fashion" clothing retailer and fast-food brand introduced the new limited-edition collection inspired by iconic graphics of the taco chain.

Super fans and influencers flaunted the fun food clothing line -- "Forever Taco Bell" -- on the catwalk at a runway show and launch event in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The clothing items feature bold and playful prints ranging from Taco Bell's pink-and-purple bell logo to their variety of hot sauce packets.

The line was designed for men, women and kids and will be available online and in around the world in physical stores.

A pop-up shop at the launch of the Forever 21 Taco Bell line sold pieces ahead of their in-store availability -- and tacos, of course.

Customers are sharing their looks on social media with the hashtag #F21xTacoBell.

Taco Bell has already been selling clothing at the retail shop of its flagship Las Vegas cantina and through a 2014 collection of taco-themed socks with brand The Hundreds.

Facebook Going Down Is NOT An Emergency

posted Oct 16, 2017, 4:34 AM by Ryan Quinn

Some people may think it’s an emergency if they’re unable to post pictures of their dogs or vacation selfies from their road trip to grandma’s.

KOMO reports that police in Bothell, Washington, want you to reconsider the nature of your emergency.

After widespread reports of issues with Facebook and Instagram Wednesday morning, the Bothell police department was flooded with 911 calls from individuals freaked-out when they were cut off from their daily social media fix because Facebook went down.

Bothell Police tweeted, "We will move mountains to help those in our community. However we can't fix Facebook so please don't call 911 to 'let us know its down.'"

It remains unclear what was causing the outages.

Bear Causes Traffic Jam

posted Jul 11, 2017, 4:44 AM by Ryan Quinn

This bear caused a traffic jam after it climbed a tree near the freeway and drivers had to gawk as emergency services tried to get him down, ultimately using a tranquilizer dart. 

Bears are now everywhere. Getting into jail, houses, Mercedes and now rush hour commutes. Don't they realize how inconvenient that can be?

Bear Goes To Jail

This bear broke into jail.  It happened in Colorado.

Jails apparently are better equipped to keep things from getting out, not so great at preventing them from getting in.

Mammoth Mountain Bear Mauls Mercedes

posted Jul 11, 2017, 4:31 AM by Ryan Quinn

This couple went to Mammoth Mountain in California, where last winter's massive snowpack is still sticking around for skiers. The couple thought skiing in July would make a great adventure, and I'm sure it would, but their adventure got interrupted when a bear mauled their Mercedes.

Their biggest mistake is that they left their car unlocked overnight. The bear showed up at some point during the night and opened the passenger door and climbed in. The door shut behind the animal and if you know anything about bears, they don't like to be trapped.
