Money Clips: A collection of interesting news that may or may not be about money. (These really aren’t about money. There’s too much news of the absurd this week.)
It’s…a box of human heads. No, seriously. Authorities found a box filled with severed human heads on a Southwest jet in Little Rock, Arkansas. An employee found it. The quote: “It wasn’t labeled or packaged properly.” From KTLA.
She left $3 million. To her dogs. Heiress Gail Posner died in March and left her $8.3 million mansion and $3 million trust fund to her three chihuahuas. I have nothing else to say. From USA Today.
A dating site for Apple fans? Do you own an iPhone, an iPod, and an iPad? (And are you looking for love?) You belong on Cupidtino.com, a site that “aims to connect Apple aficionados with like-minded ‘Machearts.’” (Because nothing says true love like similar taste in computers.) From ABC News.
Like father, like son. A Georgia man who was recently arrested for a number of thefts over the last four years evidently took his 11-year-old son with him on jobs—that is, breaking into people’s homes and stealing things. Along with guns and tools, “they’ve also taken live peacocks, chickens and dogs.” Now, I ask you: How do you make a quiet getaway with a stolen peacock? From the AJC.
Minnesota Twins create peanut-free zone. Allergic to peanuts? If you want to watch the Twins play, you’re in luck—the stadium is creating “peanut-free” zones for five home games this season. The good news: You won’t die from an allergic reaction. The bad news: The areas will be mostly standing room only. From the Star Tribune.
Talk about poor design. Some metal play domes in a Brooklyn playground have now been covered up with a tarp because when the sun hits them, they get hot enough to burn small children. (Or big children. Or adults acting like children.) Maybe someone new should design the next playground. From the NY Post.
Buy solar. Get a gun. Great news, gun aficionados. Take your business to Bland Solar and Air for that new solar power system you were contemplating and they’ll throw in a gun for free. Or, you know, a $400 certificate toward a gun. Use it for a gun, rifle or ammo. From the Consumerist.
Happy weekend, all. Don’t touch the hot playground equipment.
