The best story of the week comes to us from Boston. Turns out bubble wrap isn’t just fun to pop and keep your new printer safe in the box, it can actually save lives.
Monday morning this week in Boston a construction worker tripped and fell some 30 straight down, normally this would kill or paralyze someone, but this story has a happy ending.
There was a huge pile of bubble wrap just at the bottom of the building he fell off, this is something like you would see in the James Bond movie Skyfall but it really happened.
The other workers on the sight had been discarding bubble wrap from equipment that had been delivered and it formed a huge pile, he was lucky to land smack dab in the middle.
The was traveling so fast he ended up right in the middle of the mass and the fire dept had to cut him out.
Knowing how much fun bubble wrap is, when they knew he was ok it was their best call of the day.
Some strange musings from this week include a restaurant in Washington State that gives your family a four dollar discount if your kids are well behaved, and no they don’t charge you extra if they don’t, great or bad idea is up for debate.
Tokyo is back to being the world’s most expensive city, it was displaced last year by Zurich Switzerland, I guess they had a sale on watches and chocolate this year.
KFC is always coming up with new ideas like the Double Down that took North America by storm last year and now at KFC Japan they are testing a new sandwich that is a ketchup flavored rice patty with two chicken breasts for buns, I don’t think that will surpass the Double Down.
India does some strange stuff, some fellow over there visiting went to the rural Olympics and he contacted me by Facebook and sent me some pictures of the competitions.
The two best competitions included getting run over by a tractor and carrying bricks with your teeth, not for the faint of heart, if you have been to India you probably understand this stuff.
This is a strange one that would require quite a police report, a auto-body shop in Missouri bought an SUV door from a salvage yard in Texas and had it shipped to the shop, when they opened it the door had $150,000 dollars worth of cocaine in it.
When the Texas party was questioned they of course knew nothing about it and claimed the truck came from Mexico! Case closed.
A new study now says the gum company would be wise to change their names because the words “chick lit hurts a woman’s self esteem, my question is who funds this stuff?
