After a mysterious block of wood was spotted on an iceberg in the Arctic, a grand piano has been spotted sitting on a sandbar in Biscane Bay, Florida.
"How and why the piano got there is a mystery. A grand piano weighs at least 650 pounds and is unwieldly to move...This much is clear, however: The piano isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Unless it becomes a danger to wildlife or boaters, authorities have no plans to haul it away."
Pictured: Fearless mayor of drug-ravaged Mexican town and her many stab / gunshot wound scars from multiple assassination attempts from drug lords. Her husband was murdered, she lives in constant physical pain, has to use a colostomy bag; yet many do not believe she has ever been harmed and that she's making up stories.
"But despite being scarred physically and mentally by the attacks, the extraordinarily brave Mrs Gorrostieta remains defiant. 'I wanted to show you my wounds because I'm not ashamed that my body is mutilated like this,' she said.... 'There are some that have said I made these attacks up. But I did not and now I show the physical proof to those who have doubted me. But I can't quit, not when I have three children whom I have to teach by example. 'Beside that I have the memories of my husband, the father of my children who knew how to teach the value of things and fight for them."
Pictured: Mexican cross-border weed catapult.
"A remote video surveillance system captured drug smugglers using a catapult to launch packages of pot over the Mexico/US border. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, US National Guard troops coordinated with Mexican authorities to halt the operation."

"While walking through Belltown, he was wrongly identified by a witness as a suspect in a bloody bar fight that had resumed inside a nearby convenience store...

"Sex Offender Blockbusting:" A paper detailing how to use sex offenders to hack property values for profit.
"I now think of registered sex offenders as roving Groupons for home flippers. Wentland and his coauthors provide strong evidence that you could make a lot of money persuading an ex-cellmate to move near a nice, four bedroom home in rural Virginia, and then to move away after you’ve bought the home.
Maybe when the real estate market picks up again people will start doing this. Indeed, I sort of hope they do since my impression is that these sex offender databases should probably be done away with and screwing with people’s real estate value seems like the most likely way to make that happen."
