Fun Fact Friday - 05/09/14

I'm going to try to start  "Fun Fact Friday" where every Friday I'll come up with a fun fact about myself, just for fun.  I was just sitting here in the weather center thinking to myself, "I'd love a cup of coffee right now".  Fun fact:  I LOVE coffee.  I drink a lot of it.  (probably more than I should)  When I use to work on the morning shift, people would always ask me how I looked so awake at an ungodly hour.  My answer was always... COFFEE! 

I picked up drinking coffee like most others.  It was in college when I'd be up late studying for a big test the next day.  My mother always told me if I was going to drink coffee, drink it black.  It's easier to order and it has no calories.  So I did.  Now I like drinking black coffee for the taste and smell of it.  Don't you just love a hot cup of coffee?  And is it just me, or is the coffee at the end of dinner the best tasting coffee you can get.  Why is that?  Yum.  :)

POLICE-GOAT

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Some Detroit-area cops are dealing with some real animals. Officers in Shelby Township had to take control of a black goat when it was found wandering a city park this week. Last month, the department rounded up an aggressive stray pig that charged a woman doing yard work. The pig was briefly detained and a photo of its ride in the back of a police cruiser went viral. The department is now trying to get the goat off its hands. Officers have posted a picture on Facebook, asking, "Does anyone know who owns this goat?!"

STONER CAMP

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Plans for a pot-friendly ranch resort in Colorado have been snuffed out. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities like hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting the resort says it won't open after all. The deal was kicked after the announcement made international headlines and became the butt of jokes on late-night TV.

FIREWORKS TRUCK EXPLODES

IVANPAH, Calif. (AP) -- Fourth of July has come early along a Southern California freeway. A van packed with fireworks exploded yesterday in what one witness calls a "psychedelic" display. But the sparkling sight was a headache for everyone caught in the backup that ensued. The burned out van briefly closed the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the start of the holiday weekend. The driver of the van fled and hasn't been found.

MAILING METH

HONOLULU (AP) -- Most people see a toaster oven and think breakfast. Some criminals, think crystal meth. Two men are pleading not guilty to helping mail six pounds of methamphetamine from California to Hawaii in a four slice toaster. And it's not the first time drug smugglers have gotten savvy with shipments to the island state. Meth has previously been shipped to Hawaii in mannequin heads and stuffed animals.
