March 15 (UPI) -- Police in Washington state said a cooler donated to a Goodwill store turned out to contain something far more valuable -- $24,000 worth of marijuana.
Monroe police said workers at the local Goodwill were sorting through donations during the weekend when they came across the cooler.
"Hey, where's my cooler?" "Oh, I donated that piece of crap to Goodwill. Why?"
In mostly unrelated news:
Now they're coming for your yoga pants and fleece jackets:
Yoga pants, fleece jackets, sweat-wicking athletic wear and other garments made from synthetic materials shed microscopic plastic fibers — called "microfibers" — when laundered. Wastewater systems flush the microfibers into natural waterways, eventually reaching the sea.
Experts increasingly suggest that manufacturers of washing machines — not just body washes or scrubbing detergents — may need to be targeted next in efforts to reduce plastic waste in oceans.
It's not yet known how much whether or not microfibers hurt the health of marine animals that ingest them, or whether their accumulation up the food chain is harmful.
Don't know about you, but I've had more than enough of "experts" telling me what to do. They may not know if something is harmful or not, but by golly, they want to target manufacturers just in case. And naturally, these ex-perts (which means that at some point in the past, they must have been pert) are paid with our tax dollars. Because they'd never make it in the private sector.
