Japanese Poop Steaks

diving right back into the odd news of the world that the internet has to offer, i find that japanese researchers have figured out a way to turn human feces into edible steaks.  huh!? 
So, for those still following along, here's what we have:  
Japanese Research + Human Feces = Steaks (allegedly suitable for eating)
and randomly, researchers have discovered that you are what you watch. So for those  that religiously watch 'Jersey Shore', or any of the 'Real Housewives', it's making you dumb.

What's the # for 911?

Just when I thought people couldn't get any stupider, someone reaffirms my faith that people as a species are well, fucking stupid.

A few days ago, in Lincoln, Nebraska, a woman let her garage burn to the ground because she didn't know the number for the fire department. (full article)

Ironically, Ruth and her husband live a block from the rural fire station south of town.  She spent several minutes inside her home looking for the phone number for the rural fire department.

I'm gonna go with 9...1...1...

Give to Goodwill, Yes or No?

There are many things that can be donated to Goodwill:

or maybe these:

but certainly NOT this:

Apparently in the town of Fenton, Michigan, an urn full of ashes appeared at the local Goodwill.  The box it was in was labeled, appropriately (or inappropriately) "Grandma's Urn". Ten inches tall and weighing 10 pounds (that's a shit-ton of ashes), Goodwill Manager Allen Ryckman (not the actor playing Severus Snape in Harry Potter) says it is the #1 or #2 weirdest item ever received. (source)

So remember, when selecting items to donate to Goodwill, make sure you don't give granny's remains away.
