Of Course Abe Lincoln Owned This Hat! Sure He Did! 

It could be a $6.5 million hat- or not. It seems the crown jewel of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Lincoln's stovepipe hat, one of just three thought to still exist, may just be an old hat. Two reports found insufficient evidence to tie it to Lincoln. One was a 2013 report penned by top curators with the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and Chicago History Museum who sought to establish its historical provenance: The Springfield, Ill., museum had maintained that Lincoln gave the hat to an Illinois farmer in 1858, though a century later a descendant said the hat was given in 1861 during a visit to DC. The report found "the current documentation is insufficient" to support either story and suggested the museum "soften its claims" or even try to return the hat. That may be tough to do. It was acquired in 2007 as part of a mammoth $25 million purchase of Lincoln items by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, which runs separately from the museum. The foundation in 2014 asked the FBI to see if DNA analysis could establish a tie to Lincoln. It relied on DNA from Lincoln's hair and blood-spattered items from his assassination but found a "limited quantity of remaining DNA data" in the hat; most of what it recovered "was consistent with being contemporary DNA from an individual who had recently handled the item."

That's a Damn Good Psychic!

In Bethesda, Maryland, 45-year-old Gina Marie Marks operated "Readings by Natalie" out of her home. Basically $100 tarot card readings - but that was only the beginning. From there, she convinced clients to withdraw large amounts of cash and hide it in pillowcases or under mattresses so energy from their bodies could travel to the bills; then the clients were to give Marks the cash-the more they gave, the more committed they were to Marks' "spirit guides"-so she could put it on an altar at her church in order to break evil curses placed on the client or carry out spells for the client. She conned five victims out of $341,000 this way and while clients were told the money and items would be returned, they never were. Victims say if they balked at the amount of money they were told to hand over, Marks would accuse them of not taking the work seriously or warn them that their doubts would anger the spirit guides. She convinced them of her authenticity by using phone spoofing-she would tell a client someone (say, an ex over whom the client was heartbroken) would call on a certain day and time, but warn the client not to answer; phone spoofing allowed Marks to place the call from her own number, but make it appear as if it was coming from the ex's number. Well she reached a plea deal and will now be going away for six years. Marks' lawyer insisted to the judge her work was legitimate and that she cared about her clients. To that, the judge said he felt he was being "scammed." (Newser)

20 Years in Prison - For Stealing Cigarettes!

Certainly stealing $600 worth of cigarettes from a convenience store isn't cool - but does it deserve 20 years in prison? A jury in Pensacola, Florida convicted 48-year-old Robert Spellman of burglary and grand theft in August after he took 10 cartons of cigarettes from a stock room in the store manager's office last December. He was sentenced Friday to 20 years - but before you go all crazy, you should know that Mr. Spellman also has 14 felony and 31 misdemeanor convictions prior to the cigarette theft, which qualified him as a habitual felony offender. That led to the lengthy 20-year prison sentence imposed Friday by an Escambia County judge. Something about not doing the crime if you can't do the time. (Pensacola News Journal)

Maybe Time For a New Boyfriend

Meanwhile over in England, 45-year-old Leigh Ford managed to get himself jailed for 16 weeks and miss the birth of his child, after lying to his pregnant girlfriend that he had been kidnapped, just so he could get drunk with his buddies. The kidnapping-prank-gone-wrong took place in January, when Ford made several frantic phone calls to his pregnant partner Zoe Doyle, telling her that he had been kidnapped and that he was going to be tortured unless she transferred all the money she had into the kidnappers' bank account. At first, the woman thought he was kidding, but he sounded really scared, and there were other men shouting in the background, threatening to cut off Leigh's legs, and pour hot water on him. So she complied, but she also called the police. A helicopter and a trained hostage negotiator were called in for what sounded like a complicated situation, but no one called again until next morning, when Leigh himself came home like nothing had ever happened. Police were waiting for him, and after asking him a few questions, they arrested him for wasting police time and resources. Ford apologized to his girlfriend and she eventually forgave him. Unfortunately for Ford, the judge wasn't that forgiving and sentenced Ford to 16 weeks in jail. (Oddity Central)

Mosquitos to the Rescue

Police in Wisconsin's Fond du Lac County have a swarm of mosquitos to thank after arresting a fleeing suspect who surrendered in a cornfield because he couldn't take the pesky insects any longer! Campbellsport Police Chief Thomas Dornbrook said, "When we handcuffed him he asked us to wipe his forehead because he had 15-20 mosquitoes on his forehead at that time." The suspect, John Wilson, now faces charges including felony eluding. Police say he was the getaway driver after a companion left a liquor store with unpaid alcohol. That led to a high-speed chase before Wilson and the other man each bailed from the car. Wilson might have eluded police-a dog, a drone, and officers could not find him-if not for the mosquitoes. Police say they know the identity of the other man and are still trying to pick him up. (ABC 7 Chicago)

What? Sex with My 12-Year-Old Students is Wrong?

Mary Kay Letourneau now works as a paralegal, but the former Seattle schoolteacher apparently didn't know much about law in the 1990s. In an Australian TV interview this past Sunday, she said that when she had sex with 12-year-old student Vili Fualaau, she had no idea it was a crime! She said, "If someone had told me, if anyone had told me, there is a specific law that says this is a crime. I did not know. I've said this over and over again. Had I'd known, if anyone knows my personality. Just the idea, this would count as a crime." Letourneau, who served more than seven years in prison and married Fualaau after her release in 2005, said she "absolutely felt wrongfully convicted." She is currently trying to get her name removed from the sex offenders' register. After interviewer Matt Doran tried to get her to admit that she "should have known better," the former teacher, who is 22 years older than Fualaau, said he was the one who pursued her and had been "the boss" back then. Letourneau-who was living with her husband and four children when the affair with Fualaau began-has two daughters with her former student, one born after her initial arrest and one born while she was in prison. Fualaau actually filed for legal separation last year, but the filing was later withdrawn. (FOX)

No Bath For You!

Police in Memphis arrested Jamal Staples just moments before he was about to take a bath - in the home he broke into! Upon arrival at the scene, officers were told Staples was still on the scene and that a representative from the property management company was on the way with a key to enter the home. After entering the home, Staples was found in inside of the home with multiple lights on and a bathtub filled with water. Police say, he told them he was about to take a bath. He was immediately taken into custody and told police he got a key to the property from a family member who owns the renovation company that he works for. He was charged with criminal trespass and theft of property. (WREG News)

What the What?

Roger D. Washburn of Indiana is 71-years-old and he now sits in jail after allegedly pistol-whipping his friend of 50 years- over a Bruno Mars song. A witness told police that they were all talking when an argument broke out over a song and its artist. The man said the song they were debating was sung by Bruno Mars, but Washburn said that it wasn't. When the man showed Washburn proof that it was indeed a Bruno Mars song, using the app ShaZam, the argument grew more intense. He told police that they both stood up and continued to argue until Washburn pulled a gun on him. The man said he responded to the brandished weapon by calling Washburn a "chicken (expletive)" and Washburn swung the weapon at him, striking the man in the face and arm. The gun went off when Washburn struck the man. The victim said he took a swing at Washburn and missed, and the gun then went off a second time. No one was shot during the incident. When asked why no one called police, the man said he and his other friend were shocked over what happened. They eventually decided to tell the police a few hours after it happened. Police went to Washburn's home and he admitted to hitting his friend in the face with his .38 revolver, according to a police report. He was taken to the Johnson County Jail on suspicion of battery and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. (USA Today)

TODAY IS

Christmas is three months from today. Just sayin'...

Donald Glover turns 35 today. So does Childish Gambino. What a coincidence!

Catherine Zeta-Jones turns 49 today. Does it matter? Her husband, Michael Douglas, also has a birthday today -- he's 74. A 25-year difference. We're willing to wait for her.

Will Smith turns the big 5-0 today. He's still a prince, just not as fresh. Everyone please look at the memory eraser. (flash) Thank you. Hey, isn't Will Smith's birthday coming up?

Scottie Pippen celebrates birthday number 53 from the 3-point range. Still hittin' 'em. He was part of that magical Chicago Bulls era with Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman. He was vice-Michael Jordan.

Heather Locklear's birthday is today. She turns 57. With any luck, she won't get arrested. Her ex's include Richie Sambora and Tommy Lee. Those are the only ones... so far as we know.

Mark Hamill turns 67 today. Don't remind him how old he is. It really makes him C3PO'd.

Not sure if Jedi's ever get to retire, but if they do, he's there.
Remember, Luke, if your Light Saber won't turn off after four hours, see a doctor.
He'll appear in the new movie as Luke Needswalker.
Anson Williams -- Potsie from "Happy Days" -- turns 69. If you've never heard of any of those things before... well, never mind.

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1493, Christopher Columbus set sail from Cadiz, Spain, with a flotilla of 17 ships on his second voyage to the Western Hemisphere.

The second time around, it wasn't as exciting. And they also didn't write a poem about it.
His mission -- to hopefully track down what happened to his luggage on the first trip.
This time, he made sure he got a cabin with a balcony.
It wasn't nearly as good as the first. Columbus blamed the director.
In 1513, Balboa discovered the Pacific Ocean. When you discover anything that big, is it really a big deal? It's not like the next person that came along wouldn't have seen it.

On this date in 1690, one of the earliest American newspapers, Publick Occurrences, published its only issue in Boston. Why just one issue? Their newspaper boy delivered all 34 copies of the paper on the roofs of the subscribers.

On this date in 1882, the very first major league baseball double header was played between Providence and Worcester.

Providence won by a lot. Some say they sauced Worcester. But only the ones that like puns. Hey, that rhymes, add it to my crimes.
One writer described it as "watching twice as much grass grow."
Gee, if they did that every day, the season would be half as long and the playoffs would take place in August. Just mentioning it.
On this date in 1926, Henry Ford announced the 5-day work week. Hard to believe it's been that many years and we still haven't figured out a way to cut it to four. Or better yet, three!

In 1977, the world record for the longest skateboard jump was set at 17 feet. Right before the record was set, the skateboarder was heard yelling, "I can't make it stop!" Imagine riding a skateboard 17-feet in the air and landing safely. I can't even imagine just standing on one for more than 17 seconds.

LOVE IN A DIGITAL WORLD

How soon in a relationship a couple has sex is a very personal decision, but 80% of women and 58% of men say Facebook, texting and other social media tools that help people stay connected lead to earlier first-time sex. That's the word from a survey by Shape and Men's Fitness magazines.

Texting is the number one way lovers keep in touch with one another.

Men text their lover 39% more frequently than phone, while women text 150% more often.

Before the first date, 70% of women and 63% of men use Google and other online search tools for background screening.

65% said they have been asked out on a date via text.

49% said they have been asked out on a date through a Facebook message.

Once a couple clicks, 72% of women say they have looked up their boyfriend's ex-girlfriends on Facebook.

When a couple is having sex and a call or text message is received, 5% of respondents say they glance to see who it is and 1% stop to answer.

Call it digital dumping. 43% of women and 27% of men say they have received a break-up text message.

81% said they do not de-friend the ex on Facebook.

75% admit to constantly checking a former lover's Facebook page.

MAKE A KICK-ASS FIRST IMPRESSION

You'll stand out from the crowd with Cosmopolitan's smart moves.

Shake hands like a pro.

"Many women wait for the other person to extend his or her hand, but reaching out first puts you in control immediately, says Marjorie Brody, founder of Brody Communications, an executive coaching and training firm in Philadelphia.

Groom these key spots.

"Your shoes, hair, and nails are the things people notice first," says Brody. It may not seem like a big deal to have a chipped nail or worn-out pumps, but these things suggest that you're sloppy and not detail-oriented.

Establish eye contact.

"Introductions make many people nervous, and looking away or down is a common reaction," Brody explains. "But eye contact demonstrates that you're comfortable, interested, and engaged."

Show you're prepared.

"Do some research on the person's company," suggests Brody. Mentioning a tidbit like their new CEO in the first five minutes lets them know you're informed.

Would you rather give up all drinks except for water or give up eating anything that was cooked in an oven?

Would you rather take amazing selfies but all of your other pictures are horrible or take breathtaking photographs of anything but yourself?

Would you rather use a push lawn mower with a bar that is far too high or far too low?

Would you rather be able to dodge anything no matter how fast it's moving or be able ask any three questions and have them answered accurately?

Would you rather live on the beach or in a cabin in the woods?

Would you rather lose your left hand or right foot?

Would you rather face your fears or forget that you have them?

Would you rather be forced to dance every time you heard music or be forced to sing along to any song you heard?

Yes We Have No Bananas... Hey Wait a Minute!

A Facebook post from the Texas Department of Justice reads: "Sometimes, life gives you lemons. Sometimes, it gives you bananas. And sometimes, it gives you something you'd never expect!" They would be referencing an unexpected "treasure" found in the middle of a donation of 45 boxes of bananas that were given to the department on account of being already ripe. However, the officers who picked up the shipment noticed something odd and began inspecting the two pallets. That's when they found 540 packages of a "white powdery substance" tucked amid the bananas; that substance was later confirmed to be about $18 million worth of cocaine. The boxes came from Ports of America in Freeport. If it's yours, you should be hearing from the Drug Enforcement Administration and US Customs and Border Protection anytime now as they are both investigating. (Newser)

Selfie Death... Again!

How many times is this going to happen? In Michigan, a day of hiking with awe-inspiring views turned tragic after 32-year-old Tu Thanh Nguyen of Sunnyvale, Calif. fell to her death into Lake Superior trying to get that oh-so-cool selfie. Nguyen was traversing the trails along the cliffs of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore by herself when she decided to stop to snap a few selfies. She apparently got too close to the edge of the 200-foot-high cliff she was perched on and plummeted over the side, into the water below. Two kayakers saw Nguyen fall and rushed to retrieve her. Once back on shore, a kayak company called for help but along with the certainly deadly fall, the lake would've been a chilly 45 degrees when Nguyen hit the water. A park ranger said she was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. (WLUC)

Tragic Honeymoon?

A newlywed on his honeymoon in Hawaii was found dead at the tragic end of a 4-day search that began after he failed to return from a hiking trail. Stephen Kramar of Gaithersburg, Maryland was at the Wavecrest Resort in Kaunakakai, Molokai when he told his new wife he was going to check out a trail the morning of Sept. 17 before she joined him in order to ensure it was safe. The 27-year-old texted that he was on his way back that afternoon but never returned. Days later, his remains were found on a hillside in an area called Pia Gulch, just a half-mile from the resort. Family members have since positively identified the body as Kramar's. An autopsy has been scheduled and no official cause of death has yet been determined. A GoFundMeaccount has been set up to raise money that will benefit Kramar's family by offsetting transportation costs and other fees. As of Sunday afternoon, nearly $20,000 had been raised. (WUSA)

Racist Much?

In Texas, Lynn Redden, superintendent of the Onalaska school district has resigned after drawing widespread outrage for racist comments he made on Facebook, saying that black quarterbacks were inferior. In the official resignation letter sent Saturday to the president of the school board, Redden wrote: "As an educator, this experience has taught me that I still have a lot to learn. My comments were not only uninformed but also hurtful, and I understand now why they were offensive to so many people." Reportedly, Redden thought he was commenting on a private thread when he wrote on the Chron.com Facebook page in response to a play by black Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson last week: "When you need precision decision making you can't count on a black quarterback."

Apparently Nobody's Interested in Michael Moore's Trump Film

It appears not too many people are interested in a Michael Moore's film about Donald Trump - a film he once claimed would be so powerful, it would end Trump's presidency. If you didn't know, the film, "Fahrenheit 11/9", a satirical film about the President, barely cracked the top ten at the box office bringing in only $3.1 million over its debut weekend. Film-goers were far more interested in "The House With a Clock in Its Walls" -a family picture starring Cate Blanchett and Jack Black- which took the top spot with a surprising $26.8 million debut. Filling out the top five domestically were A Simple Favor ($10.4 million), The Nun ($10.2 million), The Predator ($8.6 million), and Crazy Rich Asians ($6.5 million). (Hollywood Reporter)

Paul Simon Is Done With You

Paul Simon will tour no more. The iconic singer/songwriter ended his final concert tour under a moonlit sky on home turf Saturday, telling an audience in a Queens, NY, park that their cheers "mean more than you can know." Simon performed at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which he said was a 20-minute bicycle ride from where he grew up, ending the landmark night with his first big hit, "The Sound of Silence." The 76-year-old Simon isn't retiring, and hasn't ruled out occasional future performances. But he's said this is his last time out on the road, and he isn't alone among his peers; Elton John and Kiss are also doing goodbye swings. The return to New York raised memories of Simon's two iconic shows in Manhattan's Central Park, in 1981 with former partner Art Garfunkel and in 1991 on his own. Simon's only guest this time was wife Edie Brickell, who came out to whistle the solo in "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard." (Newser)

What the What?

In Louisville, Kentucky, State Police arrested Bardstown police officer Matthew Glass on Friday, accusing him of being drunk at a firearms training range. Police say he was drunk while at the Department of Criminal Justice Training facility in Madison County and actually had a water bottle filled with a clear alcohol inside his backpack. He was booked into the Madison County Correction Center on Friday afternoon and released a short time later. WDRB)
