Boston homeless man finds bag stuffed with cash, turns it in




BOSTON | Mon Sep 16, 2013 5:01pm EDT


(Reuters) – A Boston homeless man turned over to police a backpack stuffed with nearly $42,000 worth of cash and travelers checks shortly after he found it at a shopping mall, police said on Monday.

“The Good Samaritan could only provide officers with his name and the address of the shelter where he currently lives,” according to a police press release.

The man, identified by police as Glen James, found the bag Saturday evening at the South Bay Mall in the Boston neighborhood of Dorchester.

He gave it to police, who later found the owner – a Chinese national whose passport was also in the bag, police said. The owner’s name was not released.

James was given a special citation from Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis on Monday afternoon “for his extraordinary show of character and honesty,” the police department said.

Utah Man Has Eaten Over 12,000 Big Mac Burgers in the Last 30 Years


He doesn’t look like your average junk-food addict, but 64-year-old Dennis Rosinlof says that he’s been hooked on McDonald’s Big Macs for the last three decades. During that time, the Utah man estimates he has consumed at least 12,000 burgers.

Dennis started eating Big Mac burgers when he started working as a salesman, 30 years ago, and has never stopped since. For the last two decades, the Vietnam War veteran says he has been eating at least 10 Big Macs a week, and he still can’t get enough of them. He has one on Monday, on his way home from work, two on Tuesday, one on the way to work, and one on the way home, one Big Mac for breakfast on Wednesday, two on Thursday and Friday, and always two of them on Saturday. He only takes a break from his favorite food on Saturday, when his wife cooks for the whole family. Dennis estimates he has spent around $60,000 on Big Mac meals ever since he first started eating them 30 years ago, but says that’s less than what he has spent on car fuel, and that doesn’t come with fries and a beverage.

Dennis-Rosinlof-Big-Mac

You’d expect someone who eats fast food six days out of a week to pack more than a few extra pounds and struggle with health-related problems, but at 64, Dennis Rosinlof is in tip-top shape. The 6-foot-tall salesman weighs just 165 pounds and has a cholesterol level of under 200. His wife, a registered nurse, and his kids have tried convincing Dennis to eat healthier, but seeing as his current eating habits don’t seem to be affecting him in a negative way, they eventually backed off. A single Big Mac meal contains around 930 calories, so even when he eats two of them a day, Dennis doesn’t go over the 2,000 calorie recommended daily intake, as he says he doesn’t eat much else. That’s how he and dietician David Zinczenko explain his lean physique.

Rosinlof, who clarified he doesn’t work for McDonald’s, has eaten over 12,000 Big Mac burgers in the last 30 years,and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. ”I look forward to going to McDonald’s every single time,” he told reporters. “I enjoy what I eat and it tastes good so I get the same thing every day”. 12,000 is a very impressive number, but Dennis Rosinlof is not the world’s biggest Big Mac fan. That title goes to Don Gorske, the mack daddy of Big Macs, who has so far consumed over 25,000 calorie bombs.

Lamborghini Aventador Model Made Entirely Out of Paper and Cardboard Looks Mind-Blowingly Realistic


Seattle-based designer Taras Lesko has spent the last few months building a nearly-life-size replica of the Lamborghini Aventador exclusively out of printing paper and cardboard.

We first featured Taras Lesko’s paper masterpieces back in 2010, shortly after he had completed his amazing 4-foot-tall Freedom Gundam. In 2011 he surprised us all again with an even more impressive 7-foot Gundam made with 1,250 distinct paper parts cut out of 720 pages. Taras took a two-year-long break after that, but he has recently unveiled his latest work of art, a stunning paper-and-cardboard replica of the Lamborghini Aventador sports car. Using his design skills, the Seattle-based artist created all the necessary parts in computer programs like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and AfterEffects, printed them on hundreds of sheets of paper and used a precise X-Acto knife to cut them loose. To make sure his paper Aventador was sturdy enough to move around, Lesko used thick chipboard as a frame for the ultra-light vehicle which weighs just 11.3 kilograms.

Named the Lamborghini Aventador A-E2 (after the architectural E2 paper sheets he used for printing), Taras Lesko’s creation measure 244 x 115 x 63cm and is currently mounted on a wall in his house. Just to get an idea of how incredibly complex the building process was, check out some of the printed parts before assembly.

Today you’ll encounter someone who is very special to you, but who’s rather domineering or overwhelming at the moment. You love them, but you can’t help wishing they’d tone down their personality for a short while because they’re showing a tendency to go over the top. All the same, you won’t want to dampen their high spirits or spoil their day.

Is something bugging you? It certainly seems that way, yet it’s difficult for you to say so. Maybe you’re desperately trying not to hurt someone’s feelings by getting angry with them, or you’re feeling guilty about finding fault with a current situation. This may be very commendable but you still need to find a constructive outlet for your pent-up emotions, otherwise they’re likely to fester and nag away at you.

You have a lot of energy at your disposal today, and the burning question is how you’re going to use it. Try your hardest to turn it to productive and constructive ends, such as having a blitz on the housework or garden. This will help you to avoid getting irritable and argumentative, which is more than likely if you spend the day in sedentary or boring pursuits.
