WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1357)



BRUSH AFTER EVERY MEAL?
One problem exploring deep space is maintaining a sufficient human food supply. In an attempt to solve this problem, Mark Blenner of Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina, is heading up a study called Synthetic Biology for Recycling Human Waste into Food (and other necessary supplies).

STUPID SPELLED D-U-M-B
Panama City, Fla. - The News Herald reports Beverly F. Brooks, 43, took a break from her job as a nursing assistant, and was late returning. This caused a co-worker to call her phone and hear Brooks say she’d been kidnapped by her boyfriend. Brooks was arrested several hours later after a police search found out she was lying.

MUST’VE SNIFFED OUT THIS GUY?
Corey Lee Ramsey, 23, of Tavares, Florida, told police he was thinking about buying the four bedroom, three bath home listed for $299,450; where they caught him inside sitting on a toilet, with his pants down around his ankles. The police didn’t buy it and arrested him for burglary. (Homeless, Ramsey has been arrested many times over the past few years.)
