time travel

It's only possible in "Back to the Future" to drive a car towards a building and "disappear" just before hitting it.  But that didn't stop a man from trying.  He crashed his Dodge Challenger into a building in his attempt to time travel.  Luckily the building was empty at the time.  idiot

passport to fly in the US

Will your driver's license be enough to board a plane in 2016?  The Federal Government passed a new law 10 years ago requiring states to issue enhanced driver's licenses.  Without these, people will not be able to fly even on domestic flights.  A passport or other government ID will be needed to get through security at airports.  As of the end of 2015, 5 states are noncompliant; many others have waivers that will expire in 2016.  So if you're planning to fly, check to make sure your ID is valid for security.  passports required?

Great Christmas present

A Michigan dad got the best present he could from his children this year.  He's an avid fan of scratch-off lottery tickets so that's what he got.  What he didn't expect was a $300,000 winner.  He plans to use some of the money to send his kids on a spring break trip.  Lottery tickets will be on my wish list from now on.  winner

life size gingerbread house

An Arizona hotel built a gingerbread house for guests to enjoy.  It's free to walk through but can be rented for $150.  Six guests can order food by the fireplace (food not included in the $150 fee though).  The creators took great care in decorating the house inside and out.  The only thing missing is the wicked witch.  gingerbread house
