All hail Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson euro

A one euro coin has turned up in Spain bearing the face of cartoon couch potato Homer Simpson instead of that of the country’s king, a sweetshop owner told Reuters on Friday.

Jose Martinez was counting the cash in his till in the city of Aviles, northern Spain, when he came across the coin where Homer’s bald head, big eyes and big nose had replaced the serious features of King Juan Carlos.

Doesn’t look a lot like Casper… “ghost” on school camera

More at WKMG Orlando

For video go here

An unexplained image that triggered a motion detecting surveillance camera and then appeared to cast a shadow as it moved inside a North Carolina high school has baffled educators.

The dark object in a human form was caught on camera at Asheville High School at 2:51 a.m. on Aug. 1.

A motion-activated camera was activated for 24 seconds to capture the object. The shape is seen moving across the floor and then above the school elevator.

“That is the coolest thing that I’ve ever seen,” teacher Martha Gietner said. “It looks like a person. It really does. I think it’s a ghost.”

This 3rd time definitely not a charm

Link to Ohio house explodes 3rd time in 7 years

Investigators say a house explosion near the eastern Ohio town of Knoxville was the third such blast on the property in seven years.

A man who owns the home was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital burn unit after the explosion Thursday night.

Emergency responders told WTOV-TV the blast was followed by 10 more explosions from what they believe was ammunition and fuel inside the home. A neighbor reported feeling the impact of the blast more than a mile away.
