Georgia Lottery Fixed? Uncanny Happenings in the Peach State

Georgia Lottery winners have no reason to think their luck has run out.

We all have used winning the lottery as a way of revealing almost impossible odds in ordinary conversation.  Well, if you’re in the state of Georgia, you might have to say “I got a better chance of winning the lottery three times.”  That’s right, a producer for CNN (warning bells sound) recently became the third person to win in the Georgia Lottery this year.  And we’re only three months in.  It’s not a new trend, either.  Tandi Reddick, the spokeswoman for the Georgia Lottery revealed 15 separate instances of repeat lottery winners in its’ history.

CNN producer Jennifer Hauser picked up a scratch-off ticket called “50X The Money.”  She won a million bucks.  This was only a couple of months after she won $100,000 playing another lottery game, “Georgia Lottery Black.”  The odds of winning a sizable amount in any lottery game is pretty slim, but the odds of someone winning twice in less than a year’s time is unthinkable.  The odds would have to get into astronomical terms.  And yet, Ms. Hauser is actually the third person to pull this off in 2012.

As you might imagine, the uncanny events happening in the Georgia Lottery have started plenty of conspiracy theories.  It also has inspired residents to buy more tickets.  On the week of February 11, the Georgia Lottery recorded the best sales week in its’ history, with more than $101.2 million.

The Lighter Side: Funny Quotes from Government Officials

This video compiles many sound bites from presidents and government officials where they made some unfortunate word and phrasing choices.  No conspiracies here, really.  Even these guys are humans and misspeak from time to time (or if you’re talking about George W. Bush, all the time).  However, it is definitely entertaining and worth taking a few minutes to get a good laugh at the expense of some real, live douchebags showing their true colors.

Man Suffers Heart Attack While Dining at the Heart Attack Grill

There are so many ironic things about this story that we almost can’t keep track of it all.  First of all, a man was whisked away by paramedics when he suffered a heart attack while dining at the aptly-named “Heart Attack Grill” in Las Vegas.  He was choking down a “triple-bypass burger” at the time that he started to experience sweats and shaking.  The Heart Attack Grill unabashedly offers some of the most nutritionally-unsound menu options on the planet, and the entire menu measures its’ items with medical terms related to heart attacks.  The restaurant prides itself on its non-healthy stature, even making the offer on a marquee sign that anyone over 350 pounds in weight eats free.  The “triple-bypass burger” is a huge offering with three beef patties that would easily be considered a large hamburger individually.  The triple is not the top dog here… there is a “quad-bypass burger” that sports four patties.  Of course, the patties are slathered in mayonnaise, cheese, and can be topped with a variety of unsavory options, like bacon.

To make things even more interesting, people seemed to take the moment as a true spectacle, with photos being Tweeted of this man’s misfortune, along with the video below of the chaotic scene as the man was rushed to the hospital.

The good news… the man, who is not being identified, survived the incident and is recovering from his heart attack.  No word on what his status would be if he had opted for the “quadruple-bypass.”

Teen Arrested for Farting in Mississippi

Drop the bomb -- do the time.

Where Harold Wayne Hadley, Jr., comes from, farting is dropping a “bomb.”  The nineteen-year-old passed some serious gas int he library at a Mississippi junior college, and decided to commemorate the fact by scrawling on a piece of toilet paper that he “passed a bomb in the library.”  Someone entered the bathroom he had been in and found it, passed it on to a teacher, and then a terrible series of events followed that found young Hadley, Jr. in a jail cell.

The teacher apparently was able to recognize Hadley’s handwriting and immediately contacted authorities.  This led to eleven emergency agencies responding to the school on a supposed bomb threat.  Hadley was quickly apprehended and booked into jail where he was held on a $20,000 bail.  If prosecutors charge him with threatening to blow up the school, he could face penalties as high as ten years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Now, that’s one hell of a gas bill.
