Mindful : June 2014
22 mindful June 2014 Sometimes it just isn’t worth the trouble: A naked guy hid inside a top-loading washer in order to surprise his par tner. He got stuck, and the police were called. It took them 20 minutes—and a gen- erous splash of olive oil—to get him out. Grade school kids in Auckland, New Zealand are spending play- time climbing trees, skateboarding, and sliding in mud. That’s because the school has done away with recess rules. The result? Less bullying, fewer serious injuries, and better con- centration in class. Utah found the annual cost of a homeless per- son’s medical care and jail time was $16,670, while an apar tment and social worker cost $11,000. They’ve been giving away apar t- ments to the chronically homeless ever since. Homelessness has been reduced by 74%. In Mexico, a driver was pulled over by police in a routine stop. A parrot in the car squawked, “He’s drunk!” Police administered a breath- alyzer and sure enough, booked the driver for a DUI. But he got to take the parrot with him to jail. No hard feelings bet ween them, we hope. Nymphomaniac is a sexually explicit film. Frozen is a Disney animated movie about a princess. When the trailer for Nymphoma- niac was accidentally shown before a screen- ing of Frozen, parents in a Tampa cinema scrambled to cover the eyes and ears of their kids. While still sneaking a peek themselves. ● It’s healthy to mess with people’s expecta- tions now and again: A Swiss organization for the disabled partnered with fashion designers to create mannequins representing people with disabilities. The mannequins—draped in haute couture—showed up in the windows of a fancy Zurich boutique. A security camera in a Ner vous Dog Coffee outlet in Ohio caught a guy helping himself to the contents of the tip jar. Instead of calling the cops, the shop owner and baristas— knowing lots of people are going through hard times—held a food drive for the thief. Whether flying to Boca, Oahu, or Cincinnati, gun owners love their guns so much, they want to take them along. Or so it seems: In 2013, five guns a day were confiscated by security agents at US airports. And four of those five were loaded. Can a refreshing brewski save the day? Yes it can: An off-duty firefighter in Texas came upon a big-rig with a burning tire. He doused the fire using the rig’s cargo— cans of beer—before it could spread to the rest of the truck. A tourist in Australia was so engrossed reading Facebook on her smartphone she strolled off a Melbourne pier. She’s fine, but probably will pay more at tention to where she’s walking than her status updates in the future. Especially since she couldn’t swim.
