Seasonal allergies can be very annoying and debilitating, but allergies can also fight crime! A study from two U.S. universities found that in 16 cities, there is less crime on days with high pollen counts. In April 2019 overall crime was down 6.7 percent in New York City, compared to the same time the previous year– this was just as allergies were reaching their peak. In other words it seems criminals are just as likely to want to stay indoors and avoid their terrible allergy symptoms as the rest of us are.
Newsweek claims Glenlivet, one of the largest whiskey companies in the world, has created a whiskey capsule collection. The capsule resembles a Tide Pod and is filled with 23 milliliters of whiskey. The capsule is meant to be chewed and swallowed and is made of biodegradable seaweed. The internet reacted with this comment…”It’s all fun and games until you mix these up with your Tide pods and end up with whiskey-soaked clothes and a stomach pump.”
How could someone not notice this? Thirty-eight-year-old Jessica Kropp was pulled over in Arkansas due to having an expired registration. Police discovered she had five warrants out for her arrest, didn’t have car insurance, and had a suspended license as well. When police arrested her they noticed a strange bow clipped in her hair and discovered it was filled with crystal meth. Which also meant her hair was a mess for her mug shot…no bow. (Daily Mail)
