Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
An International high-IQ society says it has accepted a 4-year-old British girl whose IQ is only 1 point less than that of physicist Stephen Hawking! Heidi Hankins of Winchester, England, scored a 159 on an IQ test, putting her just 1 point behind Hawking's 160 IQ. That's interesting because my IQ score ties Stephen Hawking!

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

The police chief in Richlands,  North Carolina has been prohibited from carrying a badge and gun because he couldn't shoot straight! Police Chief Thomas Bennett was suspended as a law enforcement officer after failing his recent annual firearms qualification exam. Bennett's suspended certification also means he cannot turn on the blue lights on a police cruiser or make a traffic stop. Bennett says he is still able to perform job duties related to managing the police department and was planning to retire in July.
