A time machine that tells your future
An Iranian scientist claims to have invented a time machine that offers users a glimpse of the future. Ali Razeghi, 27, said that his “Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” doesn’t transport people through time, but instead uses a complex algorithm to predict the next five to eight years of the user’s life with “98 percent accuracy.” But Razeghi refuses to showcase his prototype in public, saying he fears that “the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight.”
Falling for a mug shot
A Florida woman received dozens of marriage proposals from around the world after her mug shot for a drunk-driving arrest was posted online. Meagan Simmons, 27, was inundated with declarations of love after the mug shot wound up on Reddit, a social news website.

Simmons, a separated mother of four, said she didn’t understand “what all the hype is about,” adding, “I think the pic is terrible, honestly.”
Marijuana-laced cake sickens police chief
An Ohio police chief ended up in the hospital after he unwittingly ate a marijuana-laced cake left on his kitchen counter. Just minutes after he wolfed down the entire cake, which had been sent to his ailing daughter, Chief Mike Berkemeier started to hallucinate and feel sick. “I thought I was dying,” he said. “I was out of my mind.” The top cop was rushed to the hospital, where his daughter sheepishly revealed that the cake had been made with cannabis oil. “It was probably the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me in my entire life,” said the chief.
