Stolen car lands on rooftopResidents of a Fresno, Calif., apartment building were stunned when a stolen car ended up on their roof. Police said the driver of the vehicle was fleeing in foggy conditions when he struck a curb, bounced off rocks and a tree stump, and became airborne. The car landed about 20 feet off the ground on the building’s roof. “At first I thought it was a prank, like you’ve been punked or something,” said resident Jeanell Ricks. “That’s not something you see every day.” The car was later removed with a crane.

Lenox Hospital makes way for Beyoncé Beyoncé and Jay-Z insisted on star treatment for the birth of their baby, says the New York Post. The child, Blue Ivy Carter, was born last week at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was surrounded by bulletproof glass and burly bodyguards. Other parents were banned from using the hospital’s corridors whenever Beyoncé left her private suite. “They locked us into the [Neonatal Intensive Care Unit] and would say, ‘You can’t come out to the hallway for the next 20 minutes,’” said new dad Neil Coulon. “They just used the hospital like it was their own.”

Beijing's new eating houseA toilet-themed restaurant has opened in Beijing. The eatery, named The Sh--house, serves a range of Asian dishes inspired by the lavatorial experience, which are presented to diners in replica toilets and bedpans. “We were discussing one of the worst restaurants we’d ever eaten in and one of us said it was a real toilet,” said co-owner Feng Lu. “So we decided to see if we could make a restaurant that was just one big toilet. We can’t quite believe how successful it’s been. Now we’re talking about opening a chain.”
