Young Woman Spends an Entire Week inside KFC Restaurant after Being Dumped by Boyfriend

In China.

The staff only noticed Shen’s continuous presence after three days had passed. “We work in shifts here and the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, so we get a lot of people coming through,” said worker Jiang Li Lung. “At first no one really noticed her. But after a few days, I began thinking she looked really familiar. Then I realised we had been serving her for the past three days and that she hadn’t really left.”

Jiang and the rest of the staff were concerned about the girl, and asked her if she was okay. Shen replied that she just wanted some time to think and then asked for another box of chicken wings with extra fries. The staff decided that she wasn’t doing anyone any harm, so they let her stay. “She was after all a paying customer, even if a bit of an odd one,” Jiang explained.

A week, without a shower? Must have stank! :)

Interesting.

One of Taiwan’s most revered artefacts, the Meat-Shaped Stone is a piece of jasper, carved and dyed to resemble a chunk of stewed pork. According to the National Palace Museum, the craftsman “took the rich natural resources of this stone and carved it with great precision… the veining and hair follicles making the piece appear even more realistic.” Carved in jadeite, the cabbage was made during the Qing dynasty, and comes complete with two insects on its leaves.

Pet parrot with British accent disappears from owner’s home, returns four years later speaking Spanish

Funny.

Monday, October 13, 2014, 3:36 PM - A pet parrot that spoke with a British accent when it disappeared from its home four years ago has been reunited with its owner — and the bird now speaks Spanish.

The Daily Breeze reported Sunday the reunion was brought about by a Southern California veterinarian who mistook the African grey parrot for her own missing bird.

Teresa Micco tracked Nigel’s microchip to Darren Chick, a Brit who lives in Torrance.

Little is known about Nigel’s whereabouts the past four years, but Chick says the bird’s British accent is gone and it now speaks Spanish.
