Philly 4-year-old takes 3 a.m. bus ride in search of snacks

Philly 4-year-old takes 3 a.m. bus ride in search of snacks - York Dispatch: A four-year-old Philadelphia girl has been returned safely to her parents after slipping out of her house at 3 a.m. and getting on a transit bus in search of a snack.

Surveillance video showed the preschooler sitting on the bus early Friday, chatting to other passengers. Jenifer stopped the bus and called police.

The police took the girl to a hospital, where she was reunited with her mother.

The girl's father, Timothy Ridgeway, says, "Thank God for the bus driver stopping."

Authorities say the girl's family didn't know she had awoken and unlocked the backdoor to start her trek during a downpour early Friday.

Mystery of California hilltop piano solved

My Way News - Mystery of California hilltop piano solved: For a couple of days this week, a Southern California hilltop was alive with the sound of — mystery.

Hikers venturing to Topanga Lookout in the Santa Monica Mountains found a battered upright piano, sitting on a graffiti-scrawled concrete slab with a panoramic view over the mountains between Calabasas and the Pacific Ocean.

Turns out, the piano was used for a music video by Seattle-based artist Rachel Wong.

The cinematographer, Michael Flotron, says he and four others used a dolly and rope to haul the 350-pound instrument a mile up the trail on Tuesday.

After the shoot, it was too dark to get the piano back down.

Flotron says people seem happy to leave it there — but if necessary, he'll haul the piano back down.

Angler hooks small fish, reels in large crocodile

Angler hooks small fish, reels in large crocodile - Ben Stack was admiring the fighting spirit of a small blue threadfin he had hooked while fishing recently off the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, Australia, when suddenly there was a snag.

Stack thought the fish had dashed for cover under a log, so he continued to pull and reel, hoping to dislodge the log and claim his prize.

Finally, he began to gain line. Feeling victorious, he leaned over the rail and prepared to reach into the murky water and grab the log and his fish, only to spot a large crocodile with its jaws clamped down on the fish, staring Stack in the face.

“We were face to face and no more than 20 inches apart,” Stack described on Facebook. “Fright kicked in, I released the leader and flew backwards into the boat.”

Moments later, after Stack had regained his composure and snapped two photographs, the line broke, and the croc swam off with the threadfin.

Oregon's pink chicken mystery solved; owner explains

My Way News - Oregon's pink chicken mystery solved; owner explains: The mystery of Portland's pink chickens is solved.

Multnomah County Animal Services says the birds' owner told the agency he used food coloring, beet juice and Kool-Aid to dye the two birds, then released them to "make people smile."

Owner Bruce Whitman of Portland says the prank succeeded beyond his wildest hopes. In his words, "I didn't expect to get this many people to smile."

He says he tucked the chickens into a tree to roost early Thursday in a waterfront park, figuring they'd wake to a good day with water nearby and bugs to eat, spread some smiles and he'd pick them up Thursday evening. He soon heard news reports that the birds had become poultry celebrities.

Animal Services billed Whitman about $16 per bird for their time in custody, and cautioned him about the risks of releasing birds in public places. He says he probably won't do it again — but he and the birds have now been invited to a couple of parades.

Bacon-crazed Michigan woman guilty in McDonald’s shooting

Bacon-crazed Michigan woman guilty in McDonald’s shooting - NY Daily News: A bacon-crazed Michigan woman faces prison for shooting up a McDonald’s after workers messed up her order.

Shaneka Torres allegedly fired into the drive-thru window of the Grand Rapids fast food spot.

Jurors took just an hour on Wednesday to convict Torres in the February 2014 shooting, Torres had twice tried to get a bacon cheeseburger before she went on the McWarpath.

She complained when the first sandwich arrived without bacon, and McDonald’s promised to make it up to her with a free one next time she came in.

So Torres returned a few hours later to collect. Unfortunately, they allegedly refused to give her the free sandwich.

'Un-Swedish' paint job causes media swirl

'Un-Swedish' paint job causes media swirl - The Local: An artist from southern Sweden has been ordered to repaint his home after local officials ruled the new colour scheme for his home in Skänninge wasn't Swedish enough. The controversial decision has caused a splash across social media.

Bernth Uhno, an artist who has frequently exhibited his own paintings and etchings across Sweden, recently bought and repainted a house that had been empty since 1981.

He swapped the old, flaking yellow paintwork that the house had been covered in for decades, for a more vibrant shade of orange at the top of the building, which turns gradually lighter and more yellow towards the bottom.

However his taste proved too radical for local councillors who argued his colour scheme was too outlandish and ordered him to repaint it in a more suitable shade.

Deaf man fined for calling police officer ‘pig’ in sign language

Deaf man fined for calling police officer ‘pig’ in sign language — RT UK: A deaf man has been prosecuted for calling a police officer a ‘pig’ in sign language while drunk in a branch of McDonalds, a court heard. Unfortunately for him, the officer understood the gesture.

Police were called to a McDonalds branch in Kendal, northwest England, following claims of a man “causing difficulties,” South Cumbria Magistrates Court heard.

Linley Hassan, 25, of Cumbria, started to get “confrontational” with police, after repeatedly refusing to leave the fast food restaurant.

Prosecutor, Peter Kelly said: “He was making a sign that the officer, who understood sign language, knew to mean ‘pig’."

Tough Jam: Cubs pitcher winds up at wrong park, misses start

My Way News - Tough Jam: Cubs pitcher winds up at wrong park, misses start: Some pitchers have trouble finding the plate. Edwin Jackson of the Chicago Cubs had a much bigger problem: He couldn't find the ballpark.

Jackson missed his spring training start Tuesday against the A's when he drove to the wrong stadium. Fitting, too — he once walked eight batters in a no-hitter, and has never been known for great location.

Jackson took the blame for this errant wind-up. The 31-year-old veteran said he typed "Oakland Athletics spring training complex" into the Google Maps app on his phone and it directed him to Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

Too bad for Jackson, he didn't realize Oakland no longer played there. Instead, the A's moved out after last spring and now host games about 5 miles away at Hohokam Stadium. He eventually got to the right place, not that it helped him.

He entered the game in the second inning and was tagged for eight runs and nine hits in only 1 2-3 innings of a 14-2 loss.
