MONKEYS HELP LOST MAN SURVIVE IN AMAZON RAINFOREST FOR 9 DAYS
A 25-year-old man named Maykool Coroseo Acuña was on a tour of a rainforest in the Amazon when he wandered off from the camp where the group was staying.
Amazingly, he was in the wild, lost, for nine days before he was found alive by guides.
Maykool said that he was able to survive because he followed a group of monkeys around out there. The monkeys dropped him fruit and led him to shelter and water every day.
Of course, Maykool was in rough shape when he was found, with many insect bites and swollen feet and ankles. But, his mind was working just fine as he maintained hope of a rescue the entire time, thanks to the friendly troop of monkeys. (National Geographic)
Grabher by the License Plate
A Canadian man has gone to war with the government because he was told he can no longer have his family name on his personalized license plate because it is socially unacceptable.
Lorne Grabher of Nova Scotia has had his last name on his licence plate since 1991 without any problems or issues. So he was surprised in December when he received a letter informing him that the plate would be cancelled because people could "misinterpret it as a socially unacceptable slogan."
Grabher accuses the Department of Transportation of discriminating against his German name. But the government insists it has received complaints from people who saw the plate as "misogynistic and promoting violence against women." (CTV)
