McDonald's lottery for jobless man - William Boothe

Unemployed Wisconsin resident Jonathon Kehoe won a $1 million lottery prize at McDonald's. A winning card was found inside of a glass of soda which he had the good fortune to buy.

According to the 29-year old newly-made millionaire, he could not even trust to his luck and was asking his friends if the ticket was real. To finally make sure that he was a real winner, the unemployed lucky man has addressed McDonald’s staff, who has written a check for $1 million in his name.

At first, Jonathon Kehoe is planning to pay bills and loans from his parents with his winnings. He is also thinking of getting tattoos of his favourite restaurant’s dishes.

P.S. I hope this money will be enough for him to eat normal, healthy food

Florida is considered to be the weirdest state in 2010

Such a conclusion was made by a prominent press agency after having analyzed news stories about unusual events and occurrences which took place in 2010. I'll share some of them with my readers.

It was found that the majority of funny and strange stories exactly occurred in Florida, which later were published by local and foreign media. It is a matter of news channels and press which reports of idiotic crimes, funny situations with the participation of animals, unusual emergency calls, etc.

Among these events are: defusing a box of kittens, killing an alligator that attacked a dog, a story of a man who called police to report his mother took his beer, and also an accidental selling of a violet containing woman's ashes.

In addition, the agency mentioned a story about one man who hid a bag of marijuana and a bag of cocaine in his buttocks, and when disclosed he confessed to deputies that only the weed belonged to him. He said he did not have any idea where all that white staff had came from.

Also, one dog was involved in a road traffic accident when it accidentally pushed foot throttle down in its master's car and the vehicle knocked its owner down.

And finally, there was an accident in Florida when several Miami residents made complaints to authorities as they got poisoned after swallowing African snail mucus as part of a religious ceremony.  

The question is whether this needs to be included in news reports or be moved to the entertainment section.

Dr Boothe and his insights on social networking

Yesterday it came to my knowledge that a great interest has rapidly grown in a new "social networking" campus phenomenon called Likealittle. Only 6 weeks were needed for this new network to gather more than 20 million views.

Likealittle is an internet source for fans of online flirting. It differs from other networks in that it preserves privacy. A great advantage of the network is that you can take part in any conversation, and you can give users any name you like, whatever comes to your mind. You can even give them names of any object. All this seems queerly, but at the same time it is fun. At the moment, Likealittle creators are looking for mobile application developers. I think they should have found such specialists before launch of the internet source.

Nobody expected such great popularity from a comic anonymous communication network project - for the first few days after launch, Likealittle outnumbered Facebook! The new social network gathers more than one million views every day. Many experts believe it is a good sign, as Facebook have already won world recognition. I guess, it is time for new achievements.
