It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a...mattress? College student Jesse Scott was making his way to King's College in New York when he was hit with a mattress falling from the sky.
After being knocked unconscious, Scott awoke when several people began placing him on the mattress that had struck him. He had no recollection of what had happened, so witnesses informed the Florida native that the mattress had fallen 30 stories from a nearby roof. Scott was taken to the hospital for neck and back pain.
So much for Posturepedic. (NBC New York)
An indoor gun range in Georgia might just bring a whole new meaning to the term buzz kill with its newly approved liquor license.
The multi-million-dollar range plans to serve liquor to all of its patrons of age, despite nearby residential concerns of intoxicated and possibly armed individuals roaming the neighborhood. Although the state of Georgia does allows gun owners to carry firearms in restaurants and bars with the establishments' approval, the idea of serving liquor in a gun range has raised many eyebrows.
Though the range's owners have tried to ease worries by explaining there will be a policy that won't allow any customer to consume alcohol and then partake in shooting, you can't help but hope patrons won't mix up their shots. (Yahoo News)
A Florida man apparently never outgrew the childhood game Finders Keepers.
After picking up $29 that was dropped on the floor of a Home Depot, Michael Futerman yelled, "Finders keepers" and ran off with the money -- before using it to buy crack cocaine. Futerman ultimately got away with the cash, although he ended up striking the owner of the $29, Ruth Mae Facyson, in the right leg with his car before fleeing the scene.
But the last laugh was on Futerman. Another store customer recorded Futeran's license plate number, and he was arrested. He's now facing several charges, including drug possession. (South Florida Sun Sentinel)
