Escaped Inmates Used Peanut Butter To Trick Jailer Into Opening Door To Outside
A dozen inmates at an Alabama jail tricked a young jailer into opening a door to the outside by using peanut butter to cover a door number, Walker County Sheriff James Underwood said during a news conference on Monday.
According to Underwood, a new hire was monitoring the jail via closed-circuit video in a control room when the inmates asked him to open a door.
Earlier, the inmates used peanut butter to hide the door number that identified the outside door. When the employee hit the button he believed would open a cell door, the door to the outside opened and “out the door they went,” Underwood said.
Underwood said the plot may “sound crazy,” but “these people are crazy like a fox.”
“I said it was human error and he made a mistake,” Underwood said. “He’s a young guy, he hasn’t been there that long.”
According to officials, 11 of the 12 inmates who escaped Walker County Jail are back in custody. Brady Andrew Kilpatrick remains at large.
The 12 inmates scaled a 12-foot fence topped with razor wire after walking out of the jail, Underwood said on Monday. The only reported injury is an inmate who injured his thumb while climbing the fence.
Lyft's Business Is Booming Thanks To Uber's Troubles
Lyft Inc.’s business has been booming as its primary competitor, Uber Technologies Inc., has faced an executive exodus and a string of self-inflicted scandals.
Total revenue generated by Lyft drivers, or the company’s gross bookings, grew about 25 percent to more than $1 billion in the second quarter from more than $800 million in the previous period, according to people familiar with the matter. That’s a faster rate than Uber, which told investors earlier this month that it expected gross bookings would increase in the “mid-teens” for the quarter.
Lyft’s continued growth is a sign the company has seized on its competitors missteps. In a reversal, Uber has played catch up to Lyft lately, finally embracing in-application tipping after years of resisting. In June, Uber started a campaign to win over drivers, many of whom say they prefer to work for Lyft.
It’s not just drivers that have defected to Lyft: Uber saw more than 500,000 people delete the ride-hailing app in late January and early February after the company was accused of attempting to subvert a driver strike. That public unrest, rooted in Uber’s decision to join an advisory council to President Donald Trump, was the first of a number of incidents that humbled the company and ultimately forced Uber Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick to resign.
Lyft has generally avoided much public gloating about its competitor’s fumbles, while at the same time seizing on its competitors vulnerability. Lyft made a $1 million donation to the American Civil Liberties Union just as Uber was under fire for its Trump ties.
Despite Uber’s problems at its San Francisco headquarters, the company’s business has continued to grow. Uber’s gross bookings surpassed $8.25 billion in the second quarter of this year based on what the company told investors during a conference call earlier this month. Lyft operates in the U.S. while Uber, in conjunction with partners, is a global business.
Blowing Out Birthday Candles Leads to a 1,500% Increase in Bacteria on a Cake
See, THIS is why people are rebelling against things like "science" and "facts." Because they ruin EVERYTHING.
A new study out of Clemson University found that when someone blows out the candles on a birthday cake, it increases the amount of bacteria on the cake by an average of 1,500%. And in some cases, the amount of bacteria can increase 14,000%.
Now . . . even with all that extra bacteria, the researchers say your chances of getting sick are still pretty low. But if the person celebrating their birthday is a little sick, it's probably best NOT to have them blow out their candles.
The Filthiest Thing in Your House Is . . . the Kitchen Sponge
Apparently you should start cleaning your pots and pans with your toilet brush.
According to a new study out of Germany, the FILTHIEST thing in your house isn't in the bathroom. They found that your KITCHEN SPONGE has more active bacteria on it than anything else in your entire house.
And even if you sanitize your sponge by boiling or microwaving it, that doesn't help . . . in fact, they found that it just makes things WORSE.
Now . . . not all of those bacteria are necessarily bad for you, in fact most of them aren't. But the researchers say that they'd recommend changing your kitchen sponge once a WEEK to cut down on your risk.
