    Utah man's McDonald's burger turns 20, still looks new

    A Utah man who bought a McDonald's hamburger for presentations on enzymes said the burger is now more than 20 years old -- and it appears unchanged.

    David Whipple said he originally bought the hamburger July 7, 1999, at the McDonald's in Logan, Utah, to use in presentations on enzymes and deterioration.

    Whipple said the burger ended up forgotten in a coat pocket for several years and it ended up with viral fame when he rediscovered it in 2013.

    He said the burger was placed in a Big Mac tin and remained there for six years before being taken out again this week.

    Whipple said the burger still has the same appearance as when he bought it and gives off the smell of cardboard.

    An Ontario man who attempted a similar experiment with a burger and fries from McDonald's ending up selling the 6-year-old food on eBay in 2019.

    It would probably fall in the cryptic realm.

    Mystery of the US Navy's deep sea orange box: Croatian fisherman pulls up unknown 220 pound object in his fishing net - and is promptly told to hand it back



    [​IMG]

    Darko Bigava, a fisherman from Croatia, was trawling the waters off the Elaphiti Islands earlier this week when he hauled the strange object aboard - only for the US Navy to call and demand it back. Bigava said he refused to hand it over until the Navy paid him $3,000 to repair nets the 220lbs object damaged when it became stuck. After a tense back-and-forth, Bigava said he was compensated by the Croatian Coast Guard and returned the box. While the box appears to be fitted with some kind of underwater location system, it is unclear exactly what it was being used for or how it ended up being caught by Bigava.

    I would think Mr. Kent would have run to the driveway then said to himself "Oh, crap! I'm late." o_O

    It's obvious that box is something they don't want to talk about.

    Door camera records young moose trapping Anchorage man in his shed

    An Anchorage man carrying garbage to his shed had to take cover inside when a curious bull moose decided to join him.

    A Ring home security camera captured Curtis Phelps trapped inside the shed while the bull moose, with just one antler, approached close behind. The moose eventually moved on and Phelps escaped after calling his wife, Amy, with his cellphone.

    "He's like, let me know when I can get out of the shed," she said Friday. "I'm stuck in the shed."

    The Phelpses live in South Anchorage, and moose are regular visitors to their neighborhood. Two years ago, a cow gave birth to a calf in their backyard. Since then, a young moose, possibly the same calf, has regularly returned. The home security camera in December 2018 recorded the moose on the Phelps’ front porch eating a Christmas wreath that the family had hung.

    The latest encounter occurred at about before noon Jan. 11. The family was having a lazy Saturday, Amy Phelps said. She had placed a garbage sack on the front porch and Curtis decided to take it to their locked shed.

    "He said he walked out and he looked both ways as we always do and nothing was there," she said. "All he wore was his hat. He had his cellphone, though." Curtis unlocked the shed, deposited the garbage sack, stepped outside and spotted the moose moving his way — and picking up its pace. He ducked inside and the moose walked up to the door and gently pushed it.

    "He could see him pushing," she said. "It's cracked a little bit."

    Curtis heard footsteps along the side of the building and suspected the moose had moved. He called his wife to make sure. She ignored the call. "I thought he was just accidentally calling me," she said. "I had no clue that the poor thing was stuck in there."

    Curtis then called his 13-year-old daughter inside the house. She wanted to keep sleeping and ignored the call, Amy Phelps said.

    On his third call to his wife, she picked up. She heard Curtis yelling and looked outside but could not see him.

    She finally figured out he was in the shed. She told him the moose had crossed the street and he could come out, she said.

    Moose generally are not aggressive, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, but if irritated or threatened can deliver deadly blows by kicking, usually with their front legs. The kicks can kill a wolf and fend off a bear. More people in Alaska are injured by moose than bears, according to the department.

    Amy Phelps said she's not sure what the moose was thinking as it walked toward her husband.

    “This one seemed kind of aggressive,” she said. “I don’t know. You can’t trust them,” she said.

    Massacre! The pigs ate the farmer! They left the bones alone
    [​IMG]

    A gruesome discovery in the countryside near Lubin in Lower Silesia. In Osiek, a neighbor found a farmer's bones in the yard. Everything seems to indicate that a man was eaten by his own pigs.


    The incident occurred between December 31 and January 8 . That day, the man's neighbor found the body in the yard. For several days, no one was interested in the fate of the neighbor who was last seen alive on New Year's Eve.

    It is known that the man has long been abusing alcohol. He lived alone, raised pigs. They were not locked in the pigsty. They walked freely around the property.

    - A man's body was found by a neighbor who informed the emergency services about it - Magdalena Serafin, the district prosecutor in Lubin, told us. - The corpse was secured to the section.

    Investigators do not hide that they are dealing with such a case for the first time. - The man was seen on December 31, when he went to get water into the well and the corpse was found at this well - adds Prosecutor Serafin.

    It will be difficult to determine the exact cause of death. It is possible that the man died of a heart attack, fell over or collapsed. However, everything indicates that after his death, his body was eaten by hungry pigs. Our information shows that the body was almost completely eaten. Only a few limb bones and skull fragments remained.

    The autopsy of the deceased is scheduled for today, although it will not be easy. A forensic expert has already been called to the case. The tests will also undergo pigs secured by the poviat veterinarian. Their fate is already decided. The animals will most likely be put to sleep.
