Michael Dwayne Johnson Arrested For Dropping Pants In Grocery Store, Rubbing Produce On His Bare Butt

#zrodlo

Michael Dwayne Johnson has a strange method for picking out produce — allegedly.
The Virginia man was arrested this week after police say he dropped his pants inside a Giant Food grocery store and rubbed several pieces of produce onto his bare butt. As reported, witnesses say they saw Johnson picking up fruit from the shelf, rubbing it onto his backside, and then putting it back onto a pallet.
Police were called to the store and Johnson was apprehended. There was no clear motive for the man’s behavior during the incident.
The incident was a costly one for the grocery store, as the report noted that they had to destroy several pallets of produce for fear that they were contaminated. The potentially deadly bacteria E. coli is spread through contact with human feces, and the store chose to destroy the fruit and vegetables rather than risk potential contamination for customers.

Sunspot Solar Observatory Closure Finally Explained, And It Wasn’t Aliens (Or So They Want You To Believe)

#zrodlo

The reason for the sudden closure two weeks ago of New Mexico’s Sunspot Solar Observatory has been revealed – sort of – and, perhaps disappointingly, it wasn’t because of aliens. At least, that’s what they want you to believe…
As previously reported by the , on September 6 the FBI rolled into Sunspot, New Mexico – by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter – and ordered everyone out of the solar observatory there. What’s more, a nearby post office and a dozen or so area homes were evacuated as well.
And then there was naught but silence. The FBI would neither confirm nor deny its involvement. The scientific consortium that managed the telescope wouldn’t say anything beyond that it was a “security issue.” An Albuquerque Journal reporter tried to ask the sheriff, but the phone mysteriously cut out while the sheriff was mid-sentence (not that he knew anything anyway).

Sunspot Solar Observatory Officials Deny That Aliens Are The Reason They Closed Down, But Still Won’t Say Why

#zrodlo

The mystery of why the Sunspot Solar Observatory closed down suddenly a couple of weeks ago is getting deeper and deeper, as officials from the New Mexico telescope insist that it wasn’t aliens.
As previously reported by the , ten days ago (Thursday, September 6, to be exact), the FBI swooped into a small New Mexico town – by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter – and ordered everyone out of the building. Also evacuated were residents of a dozen or so area homes, as well as the nearby post office.
Now nearly two weeks on, nobody is talking. The scientific consortium that administers the telescope has been tight-lipped, the FBI isn’t saying, and when an Albuquerque Journal reporter tried to talk to the Otero County Sheriff about it, the phone went wonky and cut out while the sheriff was in mid-sentence.

Small Missouri Town Gets A New Newspaper Called ‘The Uranus Examiner’

#zrodlo

The tourist attraction of Uranus, Missouri — located in the rural area of Pulaski County — has a new newspaper with a name that every 12-year-old boy in the nation would appreciate — the Uranus Examiner.
The independent newspaper was launched this week after media conglomerate GateHouse Media purchased the local newspaper, the Daily Guide, and announced it was closing it down. As the reported, an employee for the soon-to-be-shuttered newspaper said she wanted to start a “fun” alternative that would promote the small town packed with tourist attractions for travelers along Route 66.
The end result was the Uranus Examiner, which the Associated Press pointed out is pronounced just as any schoolboy would expect.
The alternative comes as GateHouse Media has been closing papers across Missouri, the Associated Press reported. Just two weeks before announcing that the Daily Guide was shutting down, the company also closed the Carthage Press, with a nearby paper picking up its coverage area.

#zrodlo

The Sunspot Solar Observatory in New Mexico was shut down last week under mysterious circumstances – along with the town post office and several area homes – and going on 10 days later there are still no answers. In addition to all of the wild conspiracy theories about aliens and government cover-ups, so more reasoned possible explanations have started to trickle in.
As previously reported by the , on Thursday, September 6, FBI agents swooped into the remote Mexico town, by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter and ordered everyone out. The observatory was evacuated, a nearby post office was evacuated, even a dozen or so homes in the area were evacuated. And no one – not the FBI, not the academic consortium that manages the observatory – is saying why. Even local law enforcement has been left in the dark.
So what are the theories?

#zrodlo

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) swooped into a New Mexico town unannounced and shut down an observatory last week, and to this day no one knows why. So of course, conspiracy theorists have concluded that it has something to do with aliens.
As reports, last Thursday was just a normal day at the the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot – that is, until the FBI showed up, by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter, and ordered everyone out. Scientists, technicians, clerical workers, even the janitor were told to pack up and leave.
Otero County Sheriff Benny House said that workers were terrified and called local law enforcement to keep things from getting out of hand.
“Some folks that work at the laboratory called us, asked us if we could send a deputy to stand by while they were evacuating. All the employees were packing up and leaving.”

Truck Carrying Axe Body Spray Explodes, Shutting Down Texas Highway

#zrodlo

A truck full of Axe body spray unfortunately met a fiery, explosive end on a Texas interstate on Friday morning. The incident, which transpired in Belton, Texas, at around four in the morning, fortunately did not result in any injuries.
It did, however, cover the area in that all-too-familiar Axe smell.
Considering that the truck was full of cans of Axe body spray, the fire resulted in the cans of deodorant shooting off in all directions as they exploded. The body spray cans ended up scattered across the freeway, resulting in a cleanup job that shut down the highway for eight hours after the accident, according to a report from local news radio station .
Considering the reputation that Axe has garnered over the years, the resulting reactions from the internet were meme-worthy. It did not take long before comments about Axe’s infamous 2006-era commercials started being related to the incident.

Ottawa Police Investigate ‘Free Candy’ Van That Caused Stir On Social Media, Determine It To Be Safe

#zrodlo

In an odd case, a vehicle in Ottawa, Canada, was the source of some suspicious calls to police. The red, windowless van had the words “free candy” emblazoned on the side in what appears to be ducktape. Photos were posted on Facebook and Reddit, and they quickly circulated. While some found it funny, others were genuinely concerned that the van was involved in a kidnapping scheme.
According to the , these fears have no basis in reality. After tracking down the owner, law enforcement determined that the graffiti was not done by the registered owner of the van. It was likely done as a cruel prank on the owner, or placed there as a joke. While the jab is in bad taste, the van and its owner pose no threat to the public.
“At this time, there is no concern for public safety and the investigations are closed,” Ottawa police said in a statement.
