Susan Boyle suffered an emotional breakdown after not winning Britain’s Got Talent and paramedics came to her hotel room and took her to a hospital:
Texas won a record-setting 25 inning game yesterday. It is good that they were the only undefeated team left in the regional so they can play less games and rest a little…even if they lose tonight’s game against Army (which will probably happen–Army should beat a tired Boston College team in the afternoon and beat a tired Texas team tonight), they still can win tomorrow’s game to advance:
That Buffalo flight that crashed (see yesterday’s LOTD) had a sleep-deprived pilot who lied about his flight record (and the airlines didn’t check his record–they could have easily found out about his flunked certification tests) and a co-pilot who was sleep-deprived and earned just $16,000 per year.

“Take our daughters and sons to work day” went horribly bad at these Florida prisons when more than 40 children (as young as 5 years old!) were shocked with stun guns! Three employees were fired and two others resigned:
This Dallas woman’s 11-month-old twins got a DNA test and they found that twins had different fathers! This is a rare case of heteropaternal superfecundation. She admitted having an affair and her fiance says that he’ll stay with her and raise both twins as his sons:
Dry Fly Distilling (in Spokane) gets volunteers on Saturdays who work 3-hour shifts bottling and packing their products for shipping. The volunteers are not paid, but they get a free lunch and 3 or 4 small shots of gin or vodka. They don’t advertise this at all but they get a LOT of volunteers to show up for some reason…they now have to use a sign-up list, and they filled their volunteer needs for this year already:
Boston man was pulled over for driving to endanger because he was all over the road…because he was eating a bowl of cereal while driving:
Belgian bodybuilding championship was canceled when ALL 20 bodybuilders ran away when officials unexpectedly showed up to do steroids testing:
