Rosalyn Edwards was working in her kitchen on Wednesday 25 October, when she suddenly started to hear strange noises.

When she turned around she was stunned to discover her Border collie puppy, Rocky, had proudly led nine sheep into her house.

The seven-month-old sheepdog-in-training had taken advantage of an open gate to usher the sheep through into the Edwards’ home in Devon via the back door.  More

wiperIf a solution doesn’t exist, you have to create your own.

German engineering? Pfft. That’s not even close to the creative wizardry that comes from rednecks.

You can go ahead and keep your upper-class life hacks because they’re expensive and require a trip to the store that only wastes your valuable time.

Redneck engineering is quickly taking over the world and it will continue to wow and confuse us as long as pools and car stereo systems continue to cost a bazillion dollars.

When “semi-brilliant” minds come together over a few beers around a makeshift firepit, ideas are generated and solutions are made.  More

trickALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico – A murder suspect and young mother in New Mexico is asking a judge to extend her curfew for Halloween, so she can take her daughter trick-or-treating.

Marisa Sepulveda is charged with playing a major role in the death of 18-year-old Aliyah Garcia, who was killed in a drive-by shooting in May 2016.

Police say Sepulveda set the murder in motion when she told a group of friends to rob someone who had a pound of marijuana.

Garcia just happened to be nearby when shots rang out.

Judge Briana Zamora allowed Sepulveda to stay out of jail as long as she was under intense supervision, which includes staying off drugs, GPS monitoring, counseling and an 8 p.m. curfew.  More

urineLANDISBURG, Pennsylvania - It was harvest time at Rick Lowe’s split-level home in rural Perry County, and the flypaper above his living room couch swung heavy with the dead.

Down some stairs, behind wooden doors, the pungent laboratory where Lowe practices his reverse alchemy was full of needles and a blowgun and glass jars brimming with things few folks would dare jar.

Bottles of amber liquid on the shelves looked like apple cider, but the nose doesn’t lie.

It was urine, gallons and gallons of whitetail deer urine, waiting to be shipped out and spread across the wilds of America.  More

Patrick Maze said he was driving to work at about 5:30 a.m. last Thursday when he came across a house on an empty quarter section he owns, northeast of Pilot Butte, Sask.

“Several days later, I’d actually forgotten about the house. I went for a walk on the property and there it still was.

“Then I kind of thought, ‘That’s strange. Something’s up here.’”  More

The FDA explained in a warning published on its website this week that black licorice contains a compound called…  More
