Woman blames coffee-drinking parrot for car crash

My Way News - Police: Woman blames coffee-drinking parrot for car crash: State police say a woman blames her coffee-drinking pet parrot for distracting her moments before she crashed her car into a guardrail in Pennsylvania.

Troopers from Uniontown say the 35-year-old woman was driving on a South Union Township road just before 5 p.m. Tuesday when she noticed the bird pecking at the lid of her coffee cup. The woman says she struck the guardrail when she glanced down to see what the bird was doing.

The woman told police that the bird likes to drink coffee — and they also found bird seed in a cup holder next to the coffee and a few feathers nearby.

Police say the woman broke her arm and had facial cuts because her air bag deployed.

The bird was safely removed from the vehicle.

California man, 95, sets world record as oldest active pilot

My Way News - California man, 95, sets world record as oldest active pilot: A 95-year-old Northern California man has become the world's oldest active pilot.

The Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday that Guinness World Record keepers confirmed that a flight last month by Peter Weber Jr. qualified him for the record book.

Weber was 95 years, 4 months and 23 days old when he flew three looping circles around an airfield near Sacramento on March 30.

Guinness lists Cole Kugel as the oldest pilot ever. Kugel, who lived in Longmont, Colorado, flew for the last time in 2007 at age 105 and died the same year.

Weber says the record keepers have designated a new category: Oldest qualified pilot still licensed and flying solo.

The Air Force veteran has been pilot for 72 years and says he flies about twice a month.

Doughnut filmed 20 miles over the Earth

Watch: Doughnut filmed 20 miles over the Earth - UPI.com: A pair of Swedish brothers strapped a pastry and a video camera to a weather balloon in Norway to chronicle the journey of the "first donut in space."

Alexander and Benjamin Jonsson, who hail from Lysekil, near the Norwegian border, said the doughnut made it nearly 20 miles above the surface of the earth to become the first of its kind "in space" -- although "near space" might be more accurate, as NASA and FAI, the World Air Sports Federation, say space doesn't actually start until 62 miles above the surface.

"We like to do odd things and this felt very different," Alexander Jonsson told Swedish public radio P4 Vast. "It was really fun to watch the video for the first time. We could see the doughnut hovering above the earth"

Candy Crush addiction leads to thumb surgery

Watch: Candy Crush addiction leads to thumb surgery - UPI.com: A team of San Diego doctors said a 29-year-old man was treated for "Candy Crush thumb" after he tore a tendon from playing the smartphone color-matching game.

The doctors, writing in medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine, said the man was found to have ruptured a tendon in his thumb and he told doctors the injury had come after he played Candy Crush Saga on his phone "all day for 6 to 8 weeks."

The tendon was fixed in surgery, the study said.

The study authors said the man did not report any pain in his thumb until the tendon actually ruptured, indicating an addiction to the game may have caused the patient to feel less pain.

Golfer bitten by crocodile at Australian tourist resort

Golfer bitten by crocodile at Australian tourist resort - seattlepi.com: A golfer has been bitten on the leg by a crocodile while playing at an Australian tourist resort.

The man, aged in his 70s, had two puncture wounds in his left calf after he was bitten by the 1.2-meter (4-foot) saltwater crocodile on Monday at the Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course in the tourist town of Port Douglas on Queensland state's Great Barrier Reef, Police Senior Sergeant James Coate told Australian Broadcasting Corp.

The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to the Mossman Hospital in a stable condition, he said. Crocodile bites often become infected.

The croc had been lurking in a waterway on the 11th hole, he said.

"He landed his ball near the water and as he's done that he disturbed a ... crocodile," Coate told ABC.

"When he went up to the crocodile, it's bitten him," Coate said.

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection will attempt to catch the crocodile, which is a protected species under Australian law, so it can be relocated to a zoo or crocodile farm where crocs are grown for their meat and hides.
