UPS Man Tosses Package, Flips the Bird
And just the other day, a FedEx man tossed a TV package over a fence. Are all delivery men psychos or plain idiots?

‘It’s been less than a week since we reported about the world’s worst Fedex Driver who threw a flat screen TV over a customers fence and now we bring you an equally bad video from a driver at UPS.
‘This time the driver not only throws a box onto a customers front porch, he actually sees the customers installed security camera and flips it off before he throws the box onto the porch with no care for the merchandise that might be inside.
‘When first questioned about the drivers misstep UPS said they hadn’t seen the video but acknowledged that they would look into the situation and take “appropriate” action with the driver.
‘Here’s the video showcasing the drivers complete lack of respect for the customers package:

Hot Foods to Expect in 2012
‘For years, Whiteman and others have predicted that Indian, Peruvian and other cuisines would conquer the heartland, and every year these cuisines fail to make much headway. People in the heartland, like people on both coasts, eat pretty much the same Italian food and Chinese food and sushi they did 20 years ago. But that doesn’t mean that things aren’t changing. A few isolated items have, I think it’s fair to say, entered the American mainstream. Like spaghetti, egg rolls and gyros before them, the following foods can no longer be considered exotic…’

But cupcakes are hot at airports

Cupcake Confiscated, Deemed ‘Security Threat’
Because the cupcake contains gel-like frosting

‘A Peabody woman says a cupcake she tried to take on a flight with her sparked a potential security threat this week.
‘Rebecca Hains says she was going through security at the airport in Las Vegas when a TSA agent pulled her aside and said the cupcake frosting was “gel-like” enough to constitute a security risk.
‘She said she was able to pass through Logan International Airport security with two cupcakes, but she was stopped on the way back when she tried to return with one of them.
‘”In general, cakes and pies are allowed in carry-on luggage,” said TSA spokesperson James Fotenos, adding they were looking into why this cupcake was confiscated.
‘Hains said she had received the cupcakes as a gift and after eating one on the trip out west, decided to save the other for the flight back…’

A $20K Holiday Miracle
Dilley family wins massive gift certificate from Home Depot

‘A deserving military family walked into a Home Depot last week and left with a $20,000 gift certificate for home repairs.
‘The store employees, in their signature orange aprons, crowded around the entrance of their Salt Lake City location — waiting to give the Dilley family, the best Christmas they’ve had in a long time.
‘This year the chain launched its first, ‘Gift of Good’ campaign, a national web-driven campaign to find the most deserving military family to be awarded with the home repair certificate
‘”This program was inspired by the spirit of giving during the holidays and we thought the most meaningful gift to give is simply helping out a neighbor in need,” said Home Depot spokeswoman Nicole Carriere.
‘A group of “do-it-yourself” and military bloggers took to the web to find a deserving family, Carriere explained. The web-experts narrowed down the military families, relying on a network of diaries, personal accounts and social media…’

The Greatest Underwater Mystery?
This massive rock structure hidden 60-100 feet underwater was found in 1987 in off the coast of
the Western Pacific island of Yonaguni.

Mainstream historians cannot accept that it could be man-made because this would mean it was
built over 14,000 years ago, before sea levels rose after the last Ice Age.

Some believe this is a monument built by “Ancient Aliens.”
