A Bank Robber Is Foiled by a Bank's Hours . . . Twice

It's always great to try to cross off the biggest item from your to-do list early in the morning.  And this guy damn sure tried.

A man went to the Marine Credit Union in West Des Moines, Iowa around 8:15 A.M. last Wednesday to ROB the place.  He had a hoodie covering his head, sunglasses covering his eyes, and a red bandana covering his face.

There was just one problem.  The bank didn't open until 11:00 A.M.  So he yanked on the doors for a minute, realized they were locked, and took off.

Then, a half hour later, he went to a First National Bank about a mile away to try to rob THEM, but they were ALSO closed until 9:00 A.M.  So the guy gave up on his mission.  The cops are trying to track him down. 


Doctors Discover Why a Woman Had Dry Eyes

If you wear contact lenses and you've ever forgotten to take them out before you fell asleep, you know the feeling of waking up to PAINFULLY dry eyes. 

So wait until you get a load of this story:  A 67-year-old woman went to her optometrist in Solihull, England back in November to have cataract surgery, and she told her doctor she had really dry eyes.  And during the exam, the doctor figured out why.

The woman had 27 LOST CONTACTS stuck in her eye socket.

The doctor couldn't believe it was even possible to have that many lenses stuck behind an eye.  And when she removed all of them, guess what?  The woman said she felt a lot better.

A report about this case was just released in the "British Medical Journal", and the doctor says it's a reminder to get regular eye doctor appointments, because you never know what they might find. 


15 Year-Old Girl Leads Police On 100 Mph Chase In Stolen Truck

A 15-year-old girl from Ada County, Idaho apparently felt the need for some speed early Tuesday morning. 

The girl, whose name has not been released since she is a minor, didn’t have a driver’s license, but still managed to steal a Ford F-150 pickup truck and lead police on a high speed chase going as fast as 100 miles per hour.

Police finally caught up with the truck after it ran a red light, lost control, and crashed into a large field. When police rushed at the truck, they discovered 4 other girls were also in the truck, all between the ages of 9 and 15.

All of the girls were taken into custody, and the driver was charged with several felonies of eluding arrest and grand theft.
