I disabled one but another one pulled out a knife so I had to try and deal with him too. I tried to disarm him and in the process I got stab wounds here, there and everywhere. There was a lot of blood. He wasn’t trained and it was more of a pocket knife. Luckily my wounds were shallow. I’ve been shot in the leg and even bitten by a snake, the venom lay dormant in my spine for years. I’ve been near death so many times that situation just doesn’t worry me. The woman ran off screaming but I hope she is okay.



Police Officer Busted For Stealing Cookies: Sky News claims Kingston, England police officer Thomas Hooper is in trouble for stealing a tin of cookies from a co-worker.

His superiors reprimanded him and said the following during a hearing yesterday: "The appropriate authority's perspective is that it is not the value of what was taken, it is what was done. It shows clear evidence of misappropriation of property. The officer was aware it belonged to someone else and the officer has taken it."

Hooper may be charged with breaching professional standards

Cow Facing Slaughter Makes a Swim for It!
Faced with her own imminent doom as slaughterhouse workers tried to load her on a truck at the Polish farm where she was raised, one precocious cow decided to make a run for it - or in this case, a swim for it. Reportedly, once she got away from the farmers, she ran into the nearby Lake Nysa in south Poland and appeared to dive underwater, before swimming over to an island, which has become her new home. Her farmer's weeklong efforts to get her back failed, and she even dodged local firefighters, swimming away to a peninsula. Her efforts have impressed many, including one local politician who says, "If all citizens could show such determination as this cow then Poland would be a much more prosperous country." He's promising to get her to "a safe place and, as a reward for her attitude, guarantee her a long-term retirement and natural death."

Two Kids Tried The "Tall-Man In A Trenchcoat" Trick To Get Into Black Panther:



SCHOOL SHOOTING SURVIVORS GOING TO FLORIDA CAPITAL TODAY: One hundred students from Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 students and teachers were killed in a school shooting last week, are going to the state capital in Tallahassee today (February 20th) for a rally to urge lawmakers to take action to prevent more of these massacres from taking place. They're hoping to put pressure on the Republican-controlled state Legislature to pass a package of gun control laws, which some of the GOP lawmakers said they'd consider. 



TO LIVE INTO YOUR 90s DRINK SOME WINE OR BEER EACH NIGHT, GAIN A FEW POUNDS: Turns out the secret to a long life involves consuming more than just fruits, veggies, and water. University of California researchers tracked data on around 1,700 people who were in their nineties in 2003. They found modest drinking (two glasses of wine or beer per day) and carrying a few extra pounds (gaining five to ten pounds per decade) were both associated with longevity. Other findings: those who spent at least two hours per day on a hobby had a 21 percent lower risk of premature death, those who did between 15 and 45 minutes of moderate exercise a day had an 11 percent lower risk, and those who drank about two cups of coffee a day had a ten percent lower risk of premature death


STUDY: HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS CONTRIBUTE AS MUCH AIR POLLUTION AS CARS: It turns out products you use in your day-to-day life at home are really contributing to air pollution. These products include perfume, skin lotion, hair spray, deodorant, household cleaners, and lawn pesticides. Any product containing compounds refined from petroleum all release small amounts of smog-producing particles, called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), into the air. Combined, those VOCs equate to as much junk in the air as vehicle emissions create. Researcher Christopher Cappa with the University of California, Davis adds, “We can confidently say that emissions of these nontraditional sources will negatively impact urban air quality pretty much anywhere they are used in large quantities—that is pretty much any city around the U.S., Europe, or the world.”
