New Yorkers who want to contribute to the upkeep of one of the city's biggest parks can now do so right on site, by making a deposit ... in a brand-new bathroom that will turn their bodily waste into fertilizer for trees and plants.
The bathrooms will feature giant collection bins filled with woodchips and microbes designed to create what designers call "humanure." The project, which will cost about two million bucks, will bear its first "fruits" in 2015, but as of now, it's not technically legal to use human poop for that purpose – a legal blockage that officials hope to flush away soon.

A remorseful Michigan crook made amends, and then some, for his crime – by paying back the 800 bucks he stole from a convenience store three decades ago, along with an additional 400 dollars in interest.
The thief sent a letter – with no return address, of course – to the police department in Hastings, Michigan, asking for the force's help in returning the cash to the store's owner. The note, accompanied by 12 crisp hundred dollar bills, read, "I can't begin to say how sorry I am but have lived with this guilt too long. If you do find him [the owner], please tell him that I was a foolish, stupid man when I did that and I am sorry."
The victim sold the store about five years after the robbery, and police are looking for him in order to return the dough. As for the crook, the statute of limitations on the crime ran out long ago and that the sheriff's department is not interested in re-opening the case. (WOOD)
A Pennsylvania woman really went off the rails over train noise in her town – and thought she could put an end to the disturbance by parking her car on the tracks and wait for it to get broadsided.
Bridgett Dixon left her Plymouth Neon smack dab in the middle of the tracks, with the door open and keys in the ignition. She ran from the scene screaming that the car was stuck, but officers had no trouble in pulling it out of the locomotive's path when they arrived.
Dixon was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. She told the responding officer that she was tired of trains going through town, blowing their whistles, when she is downtown and on the phone, and intended to let her car be smashed so she could find out who was driving the train.
