It must be true... I read it in the tabloids
▪An elderly Texas woman and her son had the ride of a lifetime when a tornado hit their home, lifted the bathtub they were hiding in, and put it down in the nearby woods. When Charlesetta Williams, 75, and her son saw the twister approaching, they clambered into the tub for protection and pulled a quilt over themselves. Moments later, the pair heard a “boom” and sensed they were flying. “I wasn’t looking—I was under that quilt,” Williams said. “I’m a tell you, I don’t wanna ride through another one.”
▪An Oregon farmer and yoga buff has combined her two passions to create a new exercise craze: goat yoga. The classes take place on Lainey Morse’s Albany farm and resemble a typical yoga session—except that Morse’s eight goats stroll among the participants and climb on their backs as they do poses. Goat yoga has proved a huge hit, and the waiting list for the class is now more than 1,200 names long. Morse says the sessions can work wonders for people struggling with depression or anxiety. “It’s hard to be sad,” she said, “when there’s baby goats jumping on you.”
▪A Massachusetts man attempted to appeal a speeding ticket last week by claiming in court that the police officer’s radar gun had in fact picked up a fast-moving deer, not his car. Dennis Sayers was fined $105 after he was clocked going 40_mph in a 30_mph zone. In court, Sayers asked an officer if he was positive that he had captured Sayers’ speeding vehicle and not a nearby deer. “You’re not contending the radar picked up the deer?” asked Judge Peter Doyle. Sayers replied that anything is possible. The fine was upheld.
