By |2020-11-19T08:20:05-06:00November 19th, 2020|

How is this for lucky... 33-year-old Josua Hutagalung was just minding his own business in his home in Indonesia -- when a four-pound meteorite crashed through his roof. Yes. His roof was damaged. But, nobody was hurt. And -- as it turned out -- that meteorite was 4.5 billion years old and worth $1.8 million. Scientists figured out that the space rock contains very rare chemicals -- and is believed to be part of a meteorite that dates back to the start of the solar system. All of this was great for Josua, because he was able to sell the special [...]

Her charity organization -- Coats for Hope -- now operates nearly two dozen donation boxes in Illinois and Wisconsin. And over the last six years, the group [...]

Natalie Neal is a grandmother who wanted to stay in touch with her five-year-old grandson Tyrion Spann, so she programmed the Alexa unit in Tyrion’s house so he could call whenever he wanted. It was a great idea because it allowed Tyrion to call easily -- and just say hello.

When Natalie got the call from her grandson, she quickly figured out what had happened and immediately called 911. Tyrion managed to [...]

The 2020 NFL season kicked off last night with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans in front of about 17,000 fans at Arrowhead Stadium.   But the big question isn't who won . . . it was the Chiefs, 34 to 20 . . . it's how did everyone handle the national anthem? Here's what went down.   They actually played TWO songs.  First ALICIA KEYS performed "Lift Every Voice and Sing", which is also known as the Black national anthem.  That was followed by the "Star Spangled Banner".         The Texans chose to leave the field for BOTH, because they didn't want [...]

A Woman Gets Penis-Shaped Meat from the Grocery Store and Calls the Cops

By |2020-08-28T06:46:05-05:00August 28th, 2020|

I want to laugh at this woman...and laugh some more. On Monday night, a woman named Lamia Singfield from Akron, Ohio bought a pack of smoked turkey tails from the grocery store.  But as she was cooking them, she noticed one of them didn't look right.

So . . . she called the cops. They took the [...]
