We're not sure what kind of person tries to spray paint a four hundred dollar vase, but it makes sense that it's the same kind of person who demands that the store she bought it from pay for her mistake.

Well, someone made a real life version of that clock. Using the GPS of his family's smartphones, Imgur user tbornottb was able to program the clock to light up when they reached different locations.

Drug smugglers have been caught trying to cross into the U.S. with fake carrots packed with marijuana. This isn't an isolated incident, smugglers have been trying to get more creative with their methods. Another popular veggie to impersonate and fill with drugs? Cucumbers.
Maybe they should try a different method. It seems like it should be pretty easy for a customs agent to spot an oversized carrot made of duct tape.
