Mindful : October 2016
16 mindful October 2016 Once in a while, a generous customer will leave a gigantic tip at a restaurant, just because. That's what staff at Colo- rado's Thailicious thought when a guy left $1,000 for a $60 meal. 'Til he returned the next day to get it back. He'd mistaken $100 bills for $1 bills. A 78-year-old man bought a full-page ad in an Idaho news- paper to find a wife for his 48-year-old son—without consent, or even a heads up. Some of his criteria were that she be attractive, in her mid- 30s, and willing to be a stay-at-home mom. ● Wanna drink, but don't wanna drink alone? You can now buy wine for your feline friends, so you can avoid human contact and still have a drinking buddy. Choose from varietals like "pinot meow" and "mosCATo." They're alcohol-free, but do contain catnip. Someone left a fake training bomb in the toilets at Manchester United's stadium after a security exercise, causing police to evacuate the stadium and cancel a match— on the final day of the English Premier League season. An artist in Ningbo, China, spent three days and nights build- ing a LEGO sculpture of a fox from Disney's movie, Zootopia. Within an hour of its debut at a LEGO expo, a child knocked over the figurine, valued at more than $15,000. "Old dog has new job," read a sign held up by Michael Vaudreuil, a 54-year-old custodian at Worcester Polytech- nic Institute, when after nearly a decade work- ing on an engineering degree at the school he cleaned, he graduated and landed a job at a multibillion-dollar firm. Students and faculty from Greece's Uni- versity of the Aegean built a giant chess board from lifejackets and lifeboats that helped refugees cross the sea, to symbolize the environmental and refugee crises. This year the Califor- nia State Assembly passed a bill to ban orca captivity, and prohibit the use of orcas for entertain- ment, breeding, or exportation. It turns out manners still matter. Believing a human being replied to every Google query, 86-year-old May Ash- worth typed "please" and "thank you" with her searches. Google replied, "In a world of billions of Searches, yours made us smile." What to do with the world's ugliest color? Save lives! According to research, the color Pantone 448C makes people think of words like "death" and "tar," so in 2012 Australia started using it on cigarette packs. Sales fell 28%, so the UK is now following suit. Mindful–Mindless Our take on who’s paying attention and who’s not Illustrations by Jessica Rae Gordon Suggestions for Mindful–Mindless? Send them to
