"Doritos Roulette" . . . a Bag of Doritos Where One Out of Seven Chips Is Incredibly Spicy

  The people at Frito-Lay have managed to turn eating Doritos into a game.  And NOT just a game of, "Let's see how chubby I can get."

  Right now there's a special limited-edition line of Doritos in Canada called Doritos Roulette.  And they've got a hell of a gimmick:  Six out of every seven chips are normal Doritos . . . one out of seven LOOKS normal but is actually incredibly spicy.

There's no word on if or when these might come to the U.S.



A Man Learns the Hard Way Why You Don't Slap a Porcupine

You shouldn't go around slapping ANY animal.  But if you're going to pick an animal to slap, at least pick one that doesn't have built-in anti-slapping technology.

  50-year-old Antonio Rodrigues Mororo of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was having a family party at his house last week, and his wife couldn't get inside . . . because there was an animal blocking the door.

Antonio thought it might be an opossum . . . but it was actually a porcupine.  He probably should've known that from all the sharp quills sticking out of its back.

Anyway, Antonio tried to get rid of it by slapping it away . . . and wound up taking 400 quills to the hand.

He went to the hospital and they gave him anesthesia . . . but that wasn't enough to stop the pain.  Then they pulled out all the quills and gave him a tetanus shot . . . which is probably no big deal when you've just taken 400 needles.

Antonio is still recovering . . . with a ton of little holes in his hand.



Seven Skills Your Grandparents Had That You Don't

 

 

1.  Cooking from scratch.  Not following a recipe, but actually improvising with food.  Before microwaves and TV dinners, people just had to know how to work with what they had, and make it taste good.

 

2.  Sewing.  Also crocheting, quilting, darning, needlepoint, and all that related stuff.  If we have holes in our socks, we throw them away.  Your grandparents actually sat down and fixed them.  Men too . . . they had to do it by themselves in the Army.

 

 

3.  Canning.  A couple people do it now if they're really into home gardening.  But fifty years ago, just about everybody did it.

 

 

4.  Ironing.  It used to be that you would iron everything off the clothesline.  Now we just iron dress clothes, and most of the time we don't even do it right.

 

5.  Meeting people in person . . . by TALKING.  A lot of us meet new people online nowadays.  When we're out in public, face to face with real people, we IGNORE them . . . so we can stay online instead.

 

 

6.  Haggling.  Before everything was sold in chain superstores, people used to haggle a lot.  Now you never even get to try, except on Craigslist and at the car dealership.

 

 

7.  Writing letters.  Your grandparents used to write beautiful letters all the time, with pen and paper, and mail them in envelopes.  The writing you do on Facebook and Twitter . . . your grandparents would have called that being ILLITERATE.

 



Five Random Facts For Tuesday

 

1.  The "Gangnam Style" video on YouTube is at more than 2 billion views, which means human beings have spent 140 million total hours watching it.  That's 16,000 YEARS.

 

2.  The reason doctors wear blue or green scrubs is because those are on the opposite side of the color wheel from red and pink . . . which makes those colors clearer during surgery.

4.  "Eyes Wide Shut" has the record for the most consecutive days of filming without a day off, at 400 days straight.  At one point, Stanley Kubrick made Tom Cruise do 97 takes of him just walking through a door.

 

5.  The only two states where it's totally legal to shoot porn are California and New Hampshire.  Other states like Nevada and Florida might temporarily look the other way . . . but they could crack down on your shoot at any point.



A Woman Catfishes Her Niece . . . and Finds the Niece Wants Her Killed

  A woman in Fosters, Alabama has been taking care of her 19-year-old niece, Marissa Williams . . . and she felt like Marissa was getting too RISKY on Facebook.  Marissa would meet strange guys on Facebook and invite them over.

 

So back in April, her aunt created a fake profile for a guy named Tre "Topdog" Ellis and added Marissa as a friend.  She thought that if she CATFISHED Marissa, she could actually talk to her and get some insight into her life.

 

And she got it.  On the first day Marissa talked to 'Tre,' she gave him her address and asked him to come over to get drunk . . . then offered to have SEX with him if he paid her $50 cell phone bill.  And that was TAME compared to what came next.

 

  A few days later, Marissa asked Tre if he'd come over, kidnap her . . . and MURDER her aunt.  She gave him details of how to get into her aunt's bedroom . . . and also asked him to kill her aunt's fiancé, her cousin, and the family dog.

 

The aunt went to the police, and Marissa was arrested for solicitation of murder.  She told the cops she DID send the messages but didn't really want anyone to get killed.



Five Random Facts For Tuesday

5.  In North Carolina, it's illegal to kill more than four turtles in your lifetime.  The fifth time and any time after that, you could be charged with animal cruelty.



Five Random Facts For Monday

 

1.  "Ghostbusters" was originally written to feature a three-man team played by Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, and John Belushi.  But they re-wrote the script after Belushi died.

 

2.  Warren Buffett has only sent one email in his entire life.  He sent it to a friend at Microsoft and it ended up being used in a court case . . . he never sent another one.  And he still uses a Nokia flip phone.

 

3.  It's illegal to burn a foreign country's flag in Denmark . . . but it's legal to burn the DANISH flag.

3.  Because there's a toy in every Happy Meal, McDonald's is the world's largest distributor of toys.  On a similar note, the largest producer of tires in the world is . . . Lego.

 

4.  The official animal of Scotland is the unicorn.

 

5.  69% of children under five can use a computer mouse . . . but only 11% know how to tie their shoelaces.



Five Random Facts For Wednesday

1.  Hurricanes with female names kill about TWICE as many people as hurricanes with male names.  And it may be because we're all SEXIST . . . as in, we don't take female hurricanes as seriously, and don't take the right precautions.

 

2.  People spent 2.4 billion hours watching OTHER PEOPLE play video games online last year.  That's up from 1.3 billion hours in 2012.

 

3.  The majority of suicides happen between midnight and 4:00 A.M. . . . with 16% of all suicides happening between 2:00 A.M. and 2:59 A.M.

5.  Clownfish . . . like the ones in "Finding Nemo" . . . can change from male-to-female if they need to, for reproduction.  So in the movie, once Nemo's mother was killed, his father would've grown female sex organs and started reproducing . . . with Nemo.



A Guy Steals a GPS, Then Calls the Cops When He Gets Lost

  I wonder if this idiot criminal can see the irony in his story.  Probably not. 

24-year-old Andrew James Joffee of Chuluota, Florida broke into a house last week, and stole some cell phones, earrings, and a GPS device.  Then he took off running.

It was dark, he didn't know the area . . . and he was pretty sure some WILD HOGS were chasing him.  So he decided he needed help . . . and he called the cops to tell them he was LOST.

And yes, he got lost even though he had a stolen GPS with him. 

The cops came out to help, but ran his name and found he had an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license.  So they searched his backpack . . . and found all of the stuff he'd stolen from the house.

 

  He was arrested, and a police spokesman said, quote, "In his defense, it does get pretty dark out [there] in the middle of the night."
