WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1110)



LET’S ALL GET EVEN MORE STUPID
Like it or not, marijuana’s popularity is growing so fast it may easily attract more consumers than many types of alcohol. While four states have legalized recreational marijuana, twenty-three others and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. The strongest pot can cost up to $1,000 an ounce, “goat-weed” can be as cheap as $20 an ounce. - Or, you could “vacation” in Jamaica, where mixed quality “ganga” often sells for only $5 an ounce.

“OH! MY EYE!!!”
In October 2014, the West Briton newspaper reported St. Austell Bay Rotary Club was sponsoring a darts match at an inn located in Grampound, England. What made this match unique was ...all dart throwers must be blind. And the only thing different was a string anchored on the bull’s eye target, which sightless participants pull on to get direction.

YOU MISSING ANY BLOW-UP DOLLS?
The journal PLOS One in a December 2014 post tells of a major new study showing humans have “contributed” 5 trillion pieces of plastic, weighing 250,000 tons, to float in the world’s oceans. With a global population of some 7.2 billion, that’s almost 700 pieces per person. (The Washington Post, 12-11-14)
