Dear friends! Funny, interesting , curious and weird news , stories from around the world and also any videos, photos, etc.
Maybe it will be of interest to you and me in this topic. I'll start with a funny incident...

Massive python slithers into road, creating a traffic jam.

The huge 5.5-meter python crawled out onto the road, scaring drivers and stopping traffic.

KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, South Africa, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A massive 18-foot python
was filmed slithering into a South African road before vanishing down a deep pothole.



Pieter Loock posted a video to the Kruger Sightings page on Facebook showing the giant snake
stopping traffic as it slithers out into the road in Kruger National Park.
The python comes to a pothole a few feet into the road and crawls into it, eventually disappearing completely.
Loock included a photo of the hole, which he theorized could be where the python made its nest.

First-time lottery player wins $400,000 in North Carolina ...

A North Carolina man said an impulsive decision to buy his first-ever lottery ticket
led to a $400,000 jackpot. Newton resident Carlos Chavez, who owns his own construction
company, told North Carolina Education Lottery officials he and his workers were
doing a job in Durham on May 2 when they stopped at the Croasdaile Family Fare store.

"After work we stopped by the store," Chavez said. "I had never played the lottery
before, but my friends were buying a few tickets, so I decided to buy one, too. I didn't
think anything of it. I just kept it in my wallet."" Chavez scratched the $5 Big Win ticket
two days later when he was in his hotel room in Durham, revealing a $400,000 prize.

[hidden image - please register]

"I looked at the ticket," Chavez said. "And I thought, 'Lucky me!'" Chavez took home
$282,005 after required state and federal withholdings. He said he plans to use the
money to pay off some bills and invest in his business.

A Staten Island Man Found a Safe of Cash in His Backyard ...

For years, the rusty metal box lay entangled in poison ivy and trees in a Staten Island backyard. The homeowners
thought it was just an electricity box. But last month they were amazed to discover it was instead a locked safe that
held money and jewels that they traced to a $52,000 robbery in 2011. And so began the tale of Bamboo Bob,
the Ninja Burglar and the stolen treasure of Staten Island.

[hidden image - please register]

“It is like a childhood dream that you find treasure,” said the homeowner, Matthew Emanuel, who eventually tracked down
the safe’s owners. “I knew it was quite a find.” In the spring, after winter storms and hungry deer ravaged their arborvitae
trees and other vegetation, Mr. Emanuel called in a horticulturist who specializes in exotic plants to help them plant bamboo
on the side of the yard for more privacy.

[hidden image - please register]

On April 28, the man known as Bamboo Bob arrived. Bamboo Bob — whose real name is Robert Foley but who insisted
on being referred to by his nickname in a telephone conversation — has been turning over the soil for decades as a
landscaper in backyards, gardens and zoos in the New York and New Jersey areas. When he paced around Mr. Emanuel’s
backyard for the first time, he paused at the sight of the metal box, about 2 feet wide and 1.5 feet deep, embedded in a few inches of dirt.

Two little girls ride a giant deadly python ...

This shocking footage shows two little girls giggling and pulling faces as they
ride on top of a huge python. The little girls look overjoyed as they ride the reptile,
a reticulated python, one of the world's longest and heaviest snakes.

[hidden image - please register]

The reticulated python is non-venomous but has been known to kill humans,
with the serpent being able to open its jaws wide enough to swallow a person.

[hidden image - please register]

The clip, filmed in Indonesia, has been viewed nearly three million times since it was published
on Facebook last Monday. The footage begins by showing a little girl with pigtails confidently
sitting on the python.



However, she appears to grow bored and leaves a few moments later.
The girl with pigtails giggles and continues to ride the enormous snake.

Squirrels stash 50 pounds of pine cones under car hood in Northern Michigan ...

A pair of Michigan residents couldn't believe their eyes when they opened the hood of a car to reveal
more than 50 pounds of pine cones that had been stored by an unknown culprit, presumably one
with four legs and a bushy tail. It was around 11 a.m. on Friday, May 11 when Gaylord resident
Kellen Moore arrived at the Iron Pig Smokehouse in Gaylord for work with a shocked look on his face.
Noticing his odd expression, Gabe Awrey, a friend and manager at the restaurant who had arrived
around 9 a.m. for an opening shift, asked what was up.

[hidden image - please register]

"Being the good friends that we are he asked me if I had received some snapchat videos that he had
just sent me," Awrey said. "They didn't come through, so he pulled up the video on his phone. I was i
nstantly in disbelief, saying something along the lines of 'When was this? A few weeks ago?'"

[hidden image - please register]

Moore had previously found the pine cones when he checked under the hood because his air conditioning was
making an odd noise when he turned it on. The phone video wasn't enough for Awrey, though. He had to see it
in person. Together, the friends walked to the parking lot where Moore's recently-purchased Dodge Journey was
parked, opened the hood and discovered the engine bay packed with pine cones. It took two people about 45 minutes
to clear the engine bay of debris.

Dog Always Brings A Leaf To 'Buy' Himself Treats At The Store ...

Some dogs beg for treats. This clever pup pays for his. For the last five years or so, the
campus of Colombia's Diversified Technical Education Institute of Monterrey Casanare has
been home to a sweet lack dog named Negro. There, he serves as a guardian of sorts,
keeping watch over things as students go about their studies.

[hidden image - please register]

In return, Negro is cared for by the school's faculty, who provide him with food, water, attention
and a safe place with them to pass the night. But the dog has apparently decided that anything
beyond that is up to him. Early on in Negro's tenure at the school, he came to be aware of the
little store on campus where students gather to buy things on their breaks; sometimes they'd
buy him cookies sold there.

[hidden image - please register]

This, evidently, is where the dog first learned about commerce — and decided to try it out himself.



"He would go to the store and watch the children give money and receive something in exchange,
" teacher Angela Garcia Bernal told The Dodo. "Then one day, spontaneous, he appeared with a
leaf in his mouth, wagging his tail and letting it be known that he wanted a cookie." [hidden link - please register]

Moment wannabe burglar almost blows himself up trying to rob an ATM ...

Two bungling brothers who tried - and failed - to blow up the same cash machine twice have been jailed.
David Culshaw, 49 and his brother Michael, 51, right, twice attempted to blow up an ATM in Warrington,
Cheshire in an effort to steal the cash inside the machine

The siblings, from Leigh, Greater Manchester, were caught on camera attempting to blow up the ATM
outside a Spar store in Warrington, Cheshire, on September 24 last year. They failed, causing only minor
damage to the machine, and fled empty handed.

Several weeks later, on October 16, the brothers went back to the same cash machine and
tried again to blow it up using a gas canister.



This time their plan was partly successful and there was an explosion which caused thousands
of pounds worth of damage to the front of the store. But it wasn't strong enough to blow open
the ATM, and again they fled with nothing. [hidden link - please register]

Willow, from the UK, has been coming to her neighbors' house almost every day since they moved in. "We live on a street of terraced
houses that backs onto another street of terraced houses with a kind of garden corridor between," Rosie told Love Meow.

"Willow rules over about six of the gardens, and I'm pretty sure she gets fed by everyone because she's very difficult to say no to."

Soon after Rosie settled into her new home, she was surprised to find a kitty sleeping in the hallway like she owned the place.
Willow would meow incessantly until the neighbors opened the glass doors to let her in for a mandatory cat nap.

Since early Spring, Rosie has been noticing pink flowers in the garden. At first, she assumed it was just wind until
one of her housemates told her that she saw Willow with a flower in her mouth.

[hidden image - please register]

"I'd never seen her with then before, but for the past few weeks now there's been a new little flower on the deck every couple of days," Rosie told Love Meow.
As days went by, the number of flowers accumulated. They were strewn all over the deck like a romantic setting.



"For a while, It was just a legend that it was her until yesterday when I was cooking
and spotted her jumping down with a pink flower in her mouth," Rosie told Love Meow.
"I was so excited that I went to film it because she's so cute and I'd never seen a cat
ever bring back anything but dead animals before." [hidden link - please register]
