Cops Find Fugitive Hiding in Closet, Salad on the Side
A 54-year-old man wanted on a host of charges, including shoplifting and auto theft, was busted by a tipped-off Tennessee cop who found him hiding in somebody else's closet, eating a salad.
According to WRCB-TV, Timothy Black was ordered to put his hands up and complied -- salad bowl in one hand, fork in the other. The latter item had to be dropped safely before cops could take him into custody, "because that could potentially be used as a weapon," said McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy. "And I suppose the salad could, too," the cop quipped.

The Secret to Eating a Healthier Bowl of Pasta
People love pasta but it's not exactly the healthiest thing for you.
For example, the carbohydrates in pasta can cause weight gain while the glucose from the starch spikes the body's blood sugar.
However, a show called Trust Me, I'm A Doctor on Britain's BBC suggests there's an easy way to reduce some of the less beneficial effects of pasta.
The solution, according to Dr. Denise Robertson of the University of Surrey, is to let you pasta cool down before eating it and then, reheat it.
Robertson had people eat freshly made pasta, pasta that was cooled down or reheated pasta with each participant then giving a blood sample every 15 minutes for two hours.
The result was that while cold pasta reduced the blood sugar increase, reheated pasta actually cut the increase by 50 percent compared to the just cooked pasta.
"A" For Effort: An 11 year-old Stockholm, Sweden boy recently called the police because he thought a burglar was breaking into his home. Cops arrived and found nothing, but decided to stay and help the boy with his homework.
A police spokesman says: "He had called his mother also but he was on his own when the police got there and they didn't want to leave him alone so they sat down and helped him with his multiplication tables and other homework. Even though it wasn't a thief it was a good thing to do.''

Up Sh*t's Creek: Shen Ailan recently got drunk on two bottles of Chinese vodka. The 57 year-old decided to clear her head by going for a swim in the Yangtze River. She passed out and woke up 46 miles downstream.
Shen tells the Global Times: “I decided a dip in the water would clear my head and I remember wading into the water. It was the middle of the day and the next thing I knew was everything had gone black. I have no idea what happened between going into the water and being pulled out, but I am only grateful that I survived. And I can certainly say that I won’t be going near alcohol again for some time.”

Thieves Steal Woman's Entire Cabin!
It's not too often that your house isn't where you left it. But that was the case for Josie-Anne Pilotte who spent three weeks building a 200-square-foot cabin in the Yukon. It had been built on pallets so it could be moved to a friend's property but it seems somebody beat her to it. When Pilotte went to move the cabin, she says all she found was a pair of gloves, a crowbar, and a window that had been left behind. She also found the insulation and roofing supplies that had previously been inside the cabin. Police are investigating but it doesn't look too promising. (Whitehorse Daily Star)
