Ride a Harley

The Harley Davidson Company has announced that they are looking for interns.  The company will teach interns to ride, give them a bike, and let them travel for 12 weeks.  When it's all done, the person will be able to keep the bike and all they have to do along the way is post about it on social media.  What an amazing adventure.  Source: UPI

Baby Human?

A woman on Facebook congratulated her friend for giving birth after seeing pictures of the "baby."  But it wasn't a human baby at all.  It was a baby wombat found on the road after it's family had been killed by a motorist.  What followed was a very awkward apology.  The lesson here is to look closely at the pictures before commenting.  Source: Mirror

Ocean Clean-Up

A machine has been created that will hopefully clean up the Pacific Garbage Patch.  It's a tube that will collect the garbage and bring back debris every month so that it can be recycled.  The plan is to have it all cleaned up within 5 years.  It will be towed to the patch this summer.  It will be nice if it truly can do the job.  Source: Fast Company

Tarantula Burger

Would you eat a tarantula burger?  There's a restaurant in North Carolina that makes burgers with exotic meats in April of every year.  They've used iguana, camel, alligator, python, turtle, and various insects.  This year it was a crunchy, full-grown, oven-roasted tarantula on top of a burger.  Not my idea of a good burger but each to their own.  Source: Yahoo News

Chupacabra

Does the evidence show that the Chupacabra is real?  A large animal has killed two dogs in Argentina.  Some say it looks like a camel and others say it is half human, half animal.  Witnesses have gotten a picture of the creature.  It's been called a demon and has been seen before in other places.  Chupacabra or something else?  Source: New York Post

Prom and a Blizzard

In Forest Lake, MN, the local fire department came to the rescue of prom.  They opened their firehouse so that kids could have their prom pictures taken inside.  Because of 15" of snow forecast for Saturday night, prom pictures couldn't be taken outside.  So for three hours, students had their photos snapped in and around the equipment.  It was so popular, they've asked the fire department to do it every year even if there isn't a blizzard.  Source: Yahoo News

Texas License Plate

A man in Texas thought he could get away with making his own license plate.  He may have gotten away with it except the cardboard he used was obvious...seriously?  Cardboard?  What was he thinking?  Even a child would recognize that was wrong.  And the magic marker was sloppy.  I just have to laugh and the stupidity.  Source: UPI
