MAN HONORS HIS LATE FRIEND, FELLOW BASEBALL FAN AND PLUMBER
A New Yorker is honoring his late baseball-loving buddy by scattering his ashes across all 30 Major League stadiums. But there's something just a big more unorthodox about how he's doing it.
Tom McDonald is doing what he truly believes his best friend Roy Riegel would have wanted. Riegel was a huge Mets fan and he also worked as a plumber. So McDonald has set out to visit every stadium and flush a little bit of his ashes down the toilet.
The first flush occurred at the Mets' Citi Field which, appropriately enough, is located in Flushing, New York. He has since flushed Roy's ashes at 15 other stadiums.
Tom explains, "I know people might think it’s weird, and if it were anyone else’s ashes, I’d agree. But for Roy, this is the perfect tribute to a plumber and a baseball fan and just a brilliant, wild guy." (NY Times)
Woman Swallows Thousands Of Dollars During A Fight With Her Husband
A woman in Colombia had saved $7-thousand after having sold several electrical household items. She was going to use the money for a vacation with her husband, but they got into a fight. The unidentified woman didn't want her hubby to know about the cash, so naturally she swallowed rolls of $100 bills.
Surgeons have removed 57 of the hundreds from the woman's stomach and intestines. The rest will pass through her colon, director of surgery Juan Paulo Serrano explains.
He adds that since the rolls of cash weren't wrapped up or packaged, it's unlikely the money was swallowed for any criminal reason.
Baby photographed with mother's IUD in hand gone viral

The fact that Lucy got pregnant just a few weeks after having the birth control implanted is very rare. IUDs are said to be one of the most effective forms of birth controls. Mirena is said to be over 99 percent effective. Lucy took a picture of the newborn holding the Mirena and the picture has now gone viral. (AJC)
