Back on March 3rd, a woman in Kentucky accidentally left her purse at a Best Buy . . . with $4,000 inside. She was going to use the cash to get a used car and move her family out of a motel. Fortunately for her, a Good Samaritan found the purse and returned it to the police . . . with ALL of the cash. When she called to thank him and offer a reward, he turned it down.
Just because next St. Patrick's Day is 362 days away doesn't mean we have to stop talking about beer. A market research company just released a list of the most liked beers in the U.S., and number one is . . . Sam Adams. The rest of the top five is Budweiser, Bud Light, Heineken, and Corona.
For the first time ever, Burger King ISN'T America's second-most popular burger chain. McDonald's is still first. But in 2011, Wendy's passed Burger King, doing about $100 MILLION more in sales. Although both are still tens of billions of dollars behind McDonald's, which is the most popular chain in the country overall.
According to a new study, the line between being popular and narcissistic is . . . 800 Facebook friends. People who have more than 800 friends showed stronger signs of being self-absorbed, vain, and self-important than people with fewer friends.
Believe it or not, a new study has found that as many as 5% of women have experienced a CLIMAX . . . while they were exercising. And they weren't even fantasizing about anything . . . it's purely physical. The researchers aren't exactly sure how or why it happens, but they did find that it's most likely to happen during ab exercises.
Oscar Pistorius is a 25-year-old track and field athlete in South Africa. And on Saturday, he ran the 400-meter dash in 45.20 seconds, which is fast enough to qualify him for the London Olympics later this year.
--That's impressive, because Oscar has NO LEGS. He runs on those thin, blade-shaped carbon-fiber prosthetics.
--He's a multiple winner at the Paralympics, but Oscar wants to compete against able-bodied runners. Last year, he was the first-ever amputee to run at the world championships in Daegu, South Korea.
(--You also might have heard about him in 2008, when he was trying to qualify for the Beijing Olympics. Some Olympic officials argued that he might be a safety risk, and that he actually had an unfair ADVANTAGE . . . because his prosthetics don't get tired.)
--If he runs one more international race in Olympic qualifying time . . . which is anything below 45.30 seconds . . . he'll become the first amputee in the Olympics.
