Drunk Man Wakes Up To Selfies Of The Police Officers Who Took Him Home

A Tasmanian man has gone viral for drinking himself into a blackout and getting saved from some bizarrely friendly officers. Australians sure seem to do policing differently. News.com.au reports that Reece Park had a wild night and ended up in a cab somewhere near his home completely blotto on Friday evening. The driver called the cops, and instead of slamming Park in jail, Constables Natalie Siggins and Jeremy Blyth escorted him home and left a selfie on his phone, so he’d remember how he got there:

Don’t worry, someone asked the important question:

It’s hard not to think about all the ways this could have gone wrong for Park. This image was taken in a pretty small town on a somewhat isolated island, and they apparently have some unique ideas on community policing. A few Queensland commenters on Reddit have said that officers are called the police service rather than the police force so as to seem more community-oriented. They’re at least in touch enough to know that the photo has become wildly popular on Reddit. The Tasmania Police addressed it on their Facebook page, writing:

Park and his saviors were even interviewed on the local news:

When asked if the experience might have turned him off drinking, Park only responded, “I dunno.” Hmm, think we know what that means.

Parents Turn To Facebook To Help Find The Custom-Blanket They Took Their Baby Home In

I remember nearly every detail, down to the socks he was wearing, when I first brought my son home from the hospital. The way I gingerly put him in the car seat. The way my wife kept looking at him as she sat in the back of the car. His little polar bear onesie and how the flowers in the vase tipped over and got water all over my laptop, breaking it. Me being angry for two seconds then looking at my son’s face and forgetting all about it.

I still have the clothes my baby boy was wearing that day tucked away. I can’t wait to show him that blanket and outfit in the future. And who knows? If he has a kid one day maybe they can use the same outfit and blanket, but that’s years from now.

Most likely the blanket and clothes will be lost or destroyed from now until then, but I admit that if I lost that t hing now, I’d be crushed.

Just like this family was to discover that the homemade blanket they brought their baby girl from the hospital in went missing.

So her parents put out the word in hopes that their blankie would be found.

Today at brunch (McGuire’s) somewhere between our walk inside, while we were eating, or our exit out of the restaurant, our precious girl’s blanket went missing. (This is the blanket she sleeps with every night and was brought home from the hospital wrapped in). Unaware of this until we made it home, I rushed back to McGuire’s with no luck, searched the whole restaurant up and down along with the parking lot. I know social media is big nowadays so every share means a lot and we would really like to have the blanket returned, no harm no foul on whether it was accidentally picked up and forgot about or whatever may have happened to it. Please share this and hopefully this hand-made, sentimental blanket can be returned to the rightful owner, contact me if it is found, thank you all. Corey Ness – (850)-293-2176! ?

People began sharing their message, but so far, it hasn’t turned up.

If you happen to come across the blanket, hit them up!

Guy Finds Mystery Bag In His Home And Discovers Someone's Been Stalking Him For Months

Creepy things happen to people on a daily basis and have been for centuries. Now, thanks to the internet, we can all share our spooky happenings to creep out the rest of the web.

You can’t believe everything you read, however, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy getting a scare out of a good story every once in a while.

Imgur user Ashontez’s recent post doesn’t have any supernatural or “creepypasta” elements to it, however, it’s so scary that when I read it I hoped it was fake.

Because he found a mystery bag in his house that was apparently left there by a stalker who planned to camp out in their home.

Ok guys…strap yourselves in…this is one hell of a shitstorm. I posted this to reddit two days ago and I wanted to share with you guys. TL;DR In the Title

So, I just got a new job back in October, working Tech Support on the graveyard shift. I work from 1am – 12pm Friday through Monday’s. Needless to say, adjusting my sleep schedule has been quite the task, but I have managed. On the days that I don’t work, I still follow my work schedule, waking up at midnight, and staying up until at least 2pm before falling asleep as to keep my sleep schedule in line with my work schedule. I bought blackout curtains to help with this, as trying to sleep with the sun shining is not easy for me, I usually require complete darkness. I live alone, I started noticing weird things happening around my apartment when I would get home from work, or after waking up on my days off. Just little things at first, lights being on, that I swear I turned off, doors being left open or closed.

He describes the layout of his apartment, which is important to understand just how creepy the story is.

Just so everyone can get a bit of understanding about my apartment: I live on the 2nd floor, and my building is right behind the leasing office. The entrance to my apartment requires you to enter the building first then there is a hallway with 2 apartments on either side, then you can enter the apartment. Each apartment has two deadbolts. One that you can unlock from the outside, and another that requires you to unlock from the inside. There is also a balcony, which faces east, complete with a large, sliding glass door and screen. I use it quite frequently, as I had potted plants out there, but have brought them inside due to the cold weather. My apartment is the one closest to the camera, I intentionally left out the number, for obvious reasons.

It turns out the uploader’s credit card was stolen. This is where it gets creepy.

Now that they’re not here, it had gotten harder to pass off these weird occurrences as my cats. Doors are still being left open and closed, and food has been disappearing from my fridge. At first I passed this off as just me being my usual self and just not remembering that I ate something when I was half asleep or bored. Recently, my boss gave me permission to work from home, as this shift is brand new, as the company is moving to 24/7 support, and the building owner refuses to heat my floor for my shift for only two people. So, I’ve been doing that for the past couple weeks and last week, I noticed, the metal rod, that acts as a secondary lock on the balcony door, wasn’t engaged, so I put it back. I didn’t think much of it at the time, as my computer faces my balcony door(I like to people watch and watch the sunrise, sue me) and I sometimes fidget with it with my feet while playing video games. On the 11th of December, my Credit card information was stolen and my account was charged +$ 3000. I was in the office that day, as a favor to my coworker, who was really creeped out being in the office alone in the middle of the night. The charge was made at 11:40am, just a few moments before I gotten off work, and I had the card on me still. (This is relevant, I promise) I was restless, and didn’t sleep well. I wake up at midnight, per usual, on Monday morning, and get my set up ready to take calls. Now, almost no calls come in on the weekends, so i’m usually screwing around on Reddit, Facebook, YouTube and Netflix.

 
And this is when the creepiness hits insane lengths.

Around 3:00am I was catching up on The 100 when someone unlocked my fucking door! I don’t mean, picked the lock, I mean used a key. Thank god the secondary deadbolt was engaged but the person jiggled the door to try and get it to open. I ran and grabbed my gun looked out the peephole, but saw nothing. I opened the door, with the intent to shoot someone, but the person was already gone. Before you ask, yes I called the cops, no they didn’t find anything. There are no cameras in the hallways of the building, or outside them for that matter, and they told me that there wasn’t enough evidence for them to do anything about it, and left. I didn’t sleep at all the next night, and decided to stay home, on my days off, to try and catch the person, if they tried to come back. I also asked the leasing office if they handed out any extra keys to my apartment and they said “no.” and informed them that I changed the locks on my door. You remember the picture from before? Showing my apartment door? Well the white door, just on the other side of the fire extinguisher, is my storage closet, opened with the same key for the deadbolt. I keep my Christmas tree/Decorations in there and decided it was time to set it up. As i’m pulling out the tree this evening, its only a 5ft tall fake tree that has all the lights attached to it already, I notice a bag, back behind it. A small, black duffel-bag, in it, I found a change of clothes, sunglasses, shoes, toiletries and a notebook. What was in the notebook horrified me.

The notebook was packed with notes about the poster. What he found was so chilling he had to call the cops.

shocked mr bean terrified horrified mr. bean
giphy

There were notes about me. What hours/days I worked, notes about my cats, and updated notes that they were no longer there and the date, my fucking credit card number! As I went further and further back in the notes, I found two words, circled multiple times “Balcony Door.” Which I assume is how the person entered my apartment for the first time. This creep had been living in my apartment while I’ve been at work for the past month and I didn’t even know it! The worst part is, that I was in my apartment at the same time as this guy, at some point, and didn’t even know it. That’s the only way he would have gotten my credit card number, and my house key to make a copy somewhere!There are more notes, but I didn’t take photo’s of them before the police arrived. I was practically in shock and when I saw these notes, I completely shut down. There were notes about when I would leave on my days off, what I brought back, from where (probably based on shopping bags) How long I was gone…this guy stalked me for at least two months… They have found the person responsible for using my Credit Card info, and they’re attempting to find her! They’re hoping that they will be able to get some information on the guy who gave her my information, as the pants in the photo are in Men’s 34/34.

Thanks for reading everyone.

For clarification: I did call the cops, they have the bag and everything inside. The only thing is, the guy hasn’t come back for the bag, and the thing about fingerprints is that it can take months to a year to get an analysis back if its not “high priority” and to them, they have homicides to deal with, so Home Invasion is kind of bottom of the ladder. They pulled the security footage from the leasing office, but nothing was found. They are going to try to get CDOT to pull the footage from the Light Rail Station down the road to see if they find anything.

The thief was basically living in this dude’s apartment and assumed control of his life while the guy was asleep, all while stealing his identity.

Hopefully they’re able to catch whoever’s behind this.

Corona Beer Founder Makes Everyone In His Tiny Home Village A Millionaire

Back in August, Antonino Fernández, the founder of the Corona beer empire, died at the age of 98. And in news that has just recently emerged, he left a little surprise for the residents of a poor town in which he grew up. 

Cerezales del Condado is a small town of 80 people in Spain. When Fernández was growing up as one of 13 children, his family battled poverty. Like many children in the area, he had to drop out of school at 14 so he could help his family by working in the fields. 

But this week, the town had jubilant celebrations after it emerged that Fernández had left every single person in the town 2.35 million euros ($ 2.5 million) in his will. That’s a total of  $ 210 million if you’re counting.

village-large_trans++iyqoT1SBB9va1sGv7GIjEgZahjoHOaSdYp5wt5RPc5I

Maximino Sanchez, who owns a bar in the village, told the Diario de León newspaper: “We never had any pesete (money) before. I don’t know, what we would have done without Antonino.”

Following the devastating Spanish Civil War, Fernández moved to the town of Leon in northern Spain, where he married his wife Cinia González Díez.

Fernández moved to Mexico in 1949, at age 32, to work in the warehouse of his wife’s uncle. He worked his way up through the ranks, becoming CEO in 1971, and eventually using that position to found Corona, one of the biggest beer companies in the world.

This move is no surprise to those who knew Fernández, the billionaire was honored by the former King of Spain for charitable deeds. His most notable was the establishment of a service that helped disabled people look for work. 

The village is also getting a brand new cultural center, paid for out of his inheritance and a local non-profit foundation with 300 employees is getting an undisclosed amount of money.

A Stray Pup Tagged Along A 155-Mile Race Until She Found Her Forever Home

Any dog owner knows just how loyal pups can be— they’ll trot alongside you to the ends of the Earth. But this usually happens once a dog joins your family, not before. 

One little dog, however, found her person and was determined to get adopted. The pup spotted extreme marathon runner Dion Leonard at the beginning of the  4 Deserts Gobi March 2016, a 6-day, 155-mile race through China’s largest desert. 

On the first day of the race, a stray dog joined in, running alongside the human participants.

The little pup committed to the cause, keeping up with the runners for the first 22-mile stretch. Leonard had noticed her at the runner’s camp, but assumed she’d wander off eventually. 

But she showed up again ready for day two.

“On Day 2, I was at the start line for the race stage and she was standing next to me looking up at me,” Leonard told The Dodo. “I thought to myself this little dog isn’t going to last very long at my side as we raced off, but she ended up running the whole day and 23 miles distance.” Once the two finished the second stretch, they were inseparable, and Leonard named his new running Buddy Gobi. 

Gobi accompanied her new BFF for day three of the race.

She happily trotted along for 26-miles.”For a little dog Gobi certainly has a big heart and some pace to match,” Leonard said.

Unfortunately, Gobi had to sit out for the next two days because of extreme weather. However, organizers gave her a ride Instead to the ending point so she could be wait for Leonards arrival. 

Gobi joined in for the sixth and final day— and she and Leonard crossed the finish together. She ran over half of the 155-mile race.

But the two buddies couldn’t just go their separate ways after the experience. Leonard is hoping to bring Gobi home to Scotland so they can be a family (are you overwhelmed by the cuteness yet?)

The process won’t be easy. Getting a dog cleared to enter the UK is a long process, involving money, medical checks, and even a four-mouth quarantine. But Leonard is determined to bring his pup home. Gobi is currently staying with a friend in China until she can reunite with her dad.

In the meantime, they’ve set up a CrowdFunder page where supporters can donate to cover Gobi’s moving costs.

“Gobi picked me to be her pal for life” Leonard said. “So I am doing what I can with some great support from around the word to make this happen.” 

We can barely handle the cuteness. Here’s to hoping they can reunite soon! (h/t the dodo)

This Koala Broke Into A Woman's Home And Tried To Pole Dance

Thanks to all those seasons of Law and Order: SVU, pretty much everyone is terrified of finding an intruder in their home. Unless, of course, the assailant is cute and furry. Nikki Erickson, an educator and competitive pole dancer from Australia, came face- to-face with a pretty cute trespasser in her home a little over a year ago— but she just released a throwback video of the incident. And the Internet cannot get enough. 

The video that Erickson uploaded to Facebook features a sneaky Koala who broke into her house…and tried its hand at pole dancing. 

The unexpected visitor actually showed up at a good time. Erickson returned from a long day at work was ready to “dance the shitty day away” when she bumped into the cute little intruder. Apparently, the koala was a well-behaved house guest: it “sat there while [I] talked to her and took photos and did not growl once,” she wrote on Facebook.

Naturally, the video has been shared 2,000 times. 

Now, we don’t mean to make generalizations about the species as a whole, but it seems that koalas probably aren’t natural pole dancers.

“She wasn’t so impressed with my shiny slippery chrome tree,” Erickson wrote. But the performance certainly made her day.

Unfortunately, the koala couldn’t stay forever.

According to the Huffington Post, the little goofball was rescued by Queensland’s Daisy Hill Conservation Park and named Larissa. “They made sure she was okay and in good condition, then released her,” Erickson said. Larissa even made the Conservation Park’s staff Christmas card. Because it’s hard to top a pole dancing koala. 

“I will never forget this day,” Erickson wrote. 

We understand. It’s hard to forget your first koala pole dance performance. (h/t mashable)
