Now That's a Tough Decision
In Jamestown, North Dakota, it took 69-year-old Myron Schlafman just moments to make what had to be the toughest decision of his life. Schlafman was using an electric meat mixer to make homemade sausage in his garage. As he removed a chunk of meat from the machine he accidentally stepped on the pedal that powered it, pulling his left arm into the device. He says the bone was severed but the hand remained attached via skin, nerves, and tissue-and that he believed he'd bleed to death if he didn't remove the hand above his wrist immediately. So he did! Schlafman said, "When I cut off my arm, I could feel my nerves jumping. If I would have hesitated, I would have stood right there and bled to death." He says a tourniquet applied by two responding officers further enabled him to survive. Doctors weren't able to reattach the hand so he'll ultimately be outfitted with a prosthetic one. His take on the situation is an amazingly optimist…

Hilary Duff is 31 and remains the only actress ever named after a beer on the Simpsons. Seems like she's been around so long, she should be 41. Did someone quit counting for a while?

Naomi Watts turns the big 5-0 today. It's an even bigger number when you're an actress. I believe that's 245 in actress years. Mira Sorvino turns 51 today. I've got a picture of her hanging up, just so I can wake up every morning and say, "Mira, Mira, on the wall."

In 1850, flogging was officially abolished as a form of punishment in the U.S. Navy.
We really need to talk with our boss about one of those bans.
Oh, so that's why the boss always says "This ain't the Navy" before our weekly floggings.
Some day, I hope our company will adopt that standard.
That was the inspiration for the old cliche, "If you can't beat 'em, don't."

Over in Delhi, India, a husband has been left unable to speak after his enraged eight-month pregnant wife bit off his tongue when he tried kissing her during an argument. The 22-year-old man had to be rushed to the hospital and treated for heavy bleeding. The wife was subsequently arrested after telling police that she was unhappy with her married life as well as her husband's unattractive looks, so she couldn't control her rage anymore. The victim's mother claims they couple had been fighting for the last year. They had been married for two years, during which time they often quarreled, pretty much over everything. It's not clear who called the police, as the young man is still unable to speak due to his injury. In fact, he had to give the police a written statement. As for the eight-month pregnant woman, she remains in police custody and stands accused of "causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means". (Oddity Central)

Most Terrifying Statistic of the Day
Get ready to have your mind blown by the latest FBI statistic: If you murder someone in America, there's a nearly 40 percent chance you'll get away with it. Yep - and f you severely assault someone, there's a 50 percent chance. And if you commit any other crime, there's a good chance you'll get away with that, too. A new report by the Federal Bureu of Investigation shows the clearance rate for cases the FBI is trying to solve and the numbers are bad across the board. For murder, the clearance rate is 61.6 percent. For aggravated assault, it's 53.3 percent. For rape, 34.5 percent. For property crimes, it drops below 20 percent. In short, police aren't making arrests for the majority of crimes in this country. It gets worse. In some communities, the clearance rates are even lower. In some of the worst-off communities the clearance rate for murders and nonfatal shootings can fall all the way down to single digits. At least t…

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 Lincol…

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.

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 yo…

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)
