An Alabama Waffle House got help from some good people who didn't even work there. Onlookers were watching an overwhelmed employee struggle to keep up with orders. Turns out, he was the only employee working the front of the restaurant. Suddenly a customer jumped into action, making his way back to the kitchen and helping wash dishes. As the man started cleaning the eating utensils, more and more customers made their way to the back of the kitchen and joined in. Waffle House PR Director Pat Harper later said "We appreciate the customers' effort, however we prefer to have our associates [...]
In the United States Wednesday night, several people received text messages that seemed to have been originally sent around Valentines Day last year. The issue was reported across all major carriers (Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T). Most people are shrugging off the glitch and not thinking too much into it, however, a few were stunned. One person told reporters they had received a text message from an ex-boyfriend who had since died, another report said they received a message from a friend who has also since died.
last Saturday, the latest rocket launched to the International Space Station. Onboard are a dozen bottles of wine. No, the wine isn't going up to give the astronauts a nice relaxing time on board the ISS. Actually, it's part of a study that sees what spending time in zero gravity does to the aging process. The project is being called "Plan Wine From Outer Space". Researchers hope to develop new flavors and benefits from the process.

Yesterday, during the Student Take Over portion of my show, I told you all about a St. Paul college student named Jayson Gonzalez who had been ordered a cease and desist from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. He was driving to the nearest Krispy Kreme in Clive, Iowa, buying up as many boxes as his car could hold, and returning to Minnesota and selling them for a profit. Also, I feel the need to point out that Gonzalez was using the money he made in order to pay down his student loan debt in order to graduate college debt free! Well, the tables [...]

A Lincoln, Nebraska man walked into a bank early this week and tried opening a checking account. He handed the clerk a $1,000,000 bill, and the problems ensued. Multiple staff members told the man that the bill he possessed was fake, yet he still stood by his word and argued that the bill was genuine. Eventually the man left, and the bank staff called police, who are trying to locate him. In case anybody was wondering, the largest denomination of a single US Dollar bill in public circulation was $10,000. -Alex
In New Smyrna Beach, Florida, a 27 year old man out surfing in waist deep water managed to jump off his board and onto a nearby shark. However, as much as this sounds like a crazy stunt, it was completely accidental. The man was treated for minor cuts but drove home after the incident. The cherry on top, this isn't the first time something like this has happened. Two months ago, as if this story is on repeat, the SAME thing happened almost to the T. Both victims are just fine.

Walmart has started posting signs however, that there is a supply shortage of dish soap which could remain off the shelves for weeks to come. Popular dish soap brands Dawn and Gain, are owned by a company called Procter & Gamble who has released a statement saying "We're aware that some P&G hand dish products may be harder to find at the moment. For a brief period, demand exceeded what we were able to supply, but this was temporary. We apologize [...]
