Alas, poor unidentified person. We never knew you well.

Local Florida news station WPBF reported on a homeless man who had a very unconventional way to uncover a dead body.

Nick Pecoraro works at a strip mall in Sebastian, Florida. One day he saw a homeless man walking around the parking lot, using a skull like a "puppet". The man was talking to it and talking to people with it. Pecoraro said he thought it was fake until he got up close.

Nope. Real.

He immediately call the police.

According to WPBF:

Indian River County Sheriff's Office spokesman Thomas Raulen said the skull was part human remains discovered in a wooded area near U.S. 1 and Roseland Road.

Raulen said the unidentified homeless man had been living in the wooded area when he stumbled upon the skeletal remains near a path. "He had put the skull on top of a trash can over there because he wanted to tell somebody to call the Sheriff's Office," insisted Raulen Tuesday.

Raulen said the man willingly led investigators to scene.

...Investigators said its too early to tell the cause of death or the gender of the victim.

Good job on continuing to give us things to write about, Florida!

Study find that 33 percent of vegetarians cheat while drunk.

It's ok, veggies. If you're drunk, it doesn't count.

A new study by money-saving website Voucher Code Pro found that a full third of self-described vegetarians cheat after they've been drinking.

According to The Telegraph:

One in three have also said they eat meat every time they were drunk on a night out with kebab meat and beef burgers being the most common.

Around 39 per cent said they ate kebab meat when they were under the influence, while 34 per cent said they opted for beef burgers.

Twenty-seven per cent of 'vegetarians' said they ate bacon, with 19 per cent devouring fried chicken and 14 per cent eating pork sausages.

But 69 per cent of vegetarians said they did not tell anyone after they had eaten meat.

The study questioned 1,789 people in the United Kingdom who considered themselves vegetarian.

What no one seems to be asking is why a coupon website decided to branch out into conducting diet research. Did they have a secret vendetta to uncover their suspicions about them cheating vegetarians?

Regardless, now you have some semi-scientific ammo if the vegetarians in your life get preachy.

British Ducks get Duck lanes.

Waddle this way.

Ducks in different parts of England received specially designated 'duck lanes' for their webbed feet.

As Mashable reports:

As part of their #ShareTheSpace campaign, Britain's Canal & River Trust have introduced "duck lanes" that run alongside the water's edge, marking out a clear waddling space for everyone's favourite feathered friends.

Obviously, the ducks don't know enough to follow their specified lanes. The lane is more of a reminder to pedestrians and cyclists to be mindful of their feathered friends.

Here's a video that explains more:

It's tough for me to think that this wasn't some type of campaign stunt.

Standing in front of a green screen as a national figure is just the type of stuff that Reddit's r/photoshopbattles loves.

But that's what Jeb(!) Bush did.

Mother gets outraged after she finds a slave in her son's pirate ship play set.

What a bummer of a birthday — First you find out your present is deeply offensive, then your mom takes it away.

A California mother bought her son a Playmobil pirate ship play set as a fifth birthday present. What she didn't expect to find inside was a slave figurine, complete with a chain collar and a dungeon.


According to the Washington Post:

Ida Lockett of Sacramento, Calif., said her 5-year-old son received the toy as a birthday present, and when she was helping him assemble it, she noticed the instructions — telling her to put a play shackle around the figure's neck.

"This right here was found on his neck," she told CBS Sacramento about the piece.

"You cannot have this specific accessory and call it anything else. The fact that you can Google it, look it up, say what it is — it's a slave collar."

The toy's instruction manual shows a dark-skinned doll wearing no shoes, ripped pants and a tattered yellow shirt and directs the assembler to pop the silver piece around its neck. The ship appears to include a dungeon.

Playmobil told The Washington Post that the figure was supposed to be an escaped slave.

Well then why are there instructions to collar another human being?

It's indisputable that this is historical, but there is a whole shi*tload of historical atrocities that we don't make toys out of. So let's leave the unwilling enslavement, torture and death of millions of people for centuries out of play time, huh?

It is sad that this boy can't have his present, though. We're sure he got something better.

No!! Not yet I just told him I'm talking it back!!

Couple doesn't crop their photo enough in a Facebook engagement announcement.

Crop your photos, people.

This couple thought they were letting people into their personal lives by announcing their engagement over Facebook.

But there was more to the photo than initially met the eye and their family was quick on the uptake.

Break found the slip up:

After bride-to-be Miranda announced that her man had finally popped the question, it seemed that their world could be nothing short of a fairy tale. I mean, everyone woman lives to announce their engagement on facebook it seems. Hilariously enough, that magical moment didn't really seem to be the case because Miranda had already accidentally tipped off her friends to look a little closer at the photo. She stated that her boyfriend didn't give her an actual ring, assuring everyone it will come later, which did nothing other than make people lean in a little too close to check out that ring.

And that's when everyone also started noticing the weird box in the corner.

Yeah, that box? It was a pregnancy test.

The scene played out over Facebook comments and you can easily imagine the happy bride-to-be put the pieces together.

And then, the admission.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Sit back and watch this magical, wonderful thing.

Fans Joan Kamberaj and Peter Heacock animated this beautiful short film, which shows Hogwarts being built out of folded paper from The Prisoner of Azkaban.

It's a loving tribute that, according to the description, took them a great deal of work.

We are huge fans JK Rowling. So much so, that we built Hogwarts from the pages of "Prisoner of Azkaban". Frame by frame, and over one month of work, we are proud to share our first short film with all of you.

Brb. Going to King's Cross, platform 9 and 3/4.

Take a seat, Victoria's Secret. We need to talk.

Wait, it looks like you already took a seat.

The underwear seller thought there was nothing wrong when they posted this picture to their Facebook page. Obviously, their overeager graphic designers took more than their fair share away from this model.

Her left leg just keeps on going.

What makes the post even funnier is that Victoria's Secret shared it with the sub heading, "Truly. Madly. Cheeky."

The commenters weren't having it.

This is definitely not the first time that Victoria's Secret has let one of these beauties out into the wild.

Photoshop Disasters has quite the collection.

Come on, people. There are plenty of tutorials.

Nature, y'all.

It's tough to believe this isn't some airbrushed design on a 1990s shirt. The world can pull out some crazy beautiful things sometimes.

This group of humpback whales bask in the northern lights of Norway in a super peaceful swim along the coast.

According to the video's description:

This Spectacular footage of a group of humpback whales swimming under the northern lights off the coast of Norway was shot by Norwegian cameraman Harald Albrigtsen, who works for the Norwegian media company NRK.

Large gatherings of whales like this are common in the waters off Norway, and this time of year is prime time to see the northern lights in the country.

The lights most frequently appear between September and March.

Thanks, Earth. This is great.

Pink handcuffs to support breast cancer awareness will be used in a Massachusetts police department.

Getting handcuffed while promoting breast cancer awareness. That's the dream.

Well, that's the dream of the Greenfield Police Department in Greenfield, Massachusetts. They are getting all pinked out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and thought that should extend to their handcuffs.


They're really excited about it and posted it on their Facebook page:

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

Many of our community members, including some of our own friends and family members, have been affected by breast or other types of cancer.

Officers of the Greenfield Police Department have "gone pink" in order to raise awareness for the disease! All of our officers have changed their collar pins, which were blue and white state seals to pink and white pins which states "ARREST BREAST CANCER - UNLOCK THE CURE" surrounding a pink ribbon and a pair of handcuffs. Some of our officers have even replaced their on duty silver handcuffs with pink ones and will be using them during the course of their work day.

Hmmm. It seems like it could be hard to unlock the cure if they need to use those same locks on criminals.

Surely it's well-intentioned, but using a method of detainment to promote early detection and cancer research seems damn strange.
