A Kansas man found out the hard way that experts were right when they said he had a better chance at being hit by lightning than at winning the Mega Millions jackpot -- after he was struck just after purchasing his tickets.
On Thursday, Bill Isles bought three tickets for the mondo drawing and joked about his chances, then began walking back to his car, only to have the weather gods zap him. Other than, in his own words, having the strike "scramble his brain," Isles was unhurt.
After that experience, Isles did the only logical thing: He had a friend buy him 10 more tickets, none of which were winners.
Neither rain nor snow nor sleet could keep a Florida mail carrier from using her route as a pot delivery service but her bosses finally managed to get in the way of her appointed rounds.
Veronica Johnson says she collected $200 for every package she transported over the course of several months. But last week, supervisors got suspicious about one 10-pound box and contacted cops, who set up a sting operation.
She went to the address she was given, but as soon as she opened the trunk of her car to reveal the goods, she got popped for felony possession.
A Minnesota man is trying to convince a jury that his bare butt should be hanging in a museum and not hanging out to dry since he's saying that his nude swim was a work of art and not a crime.
Patrick Scully says he went for his naked dip as a protest against the repressiveness of American society - a claim that cops backed him up on by arresting him as soon as he took off his trunks.
Scully admits that his friends warned him that he'd be putting himself in danger by going commando, but said, "I replied that it was riskier to live one's life in fear of what the police might do."
