Disney World can make you crazy

Deputies spot­ted Eliz­a­beth Quin­tana after she ran out of gas on a high­way, block­ing one lane while caus­ing a scene — with a mys­te­ri­ous white pow­der caked on her face. She’d also been threat­en­ing stu­dents from a nearby school with a hand­ful of rocks. When the offi­cers ran the plates, they found that the car had been reported stolen a day ear­lier. They arrested Quin­tana, but released a man in the pas­sen­ger seat after he told them he didn’t know her and had only been picked up while hitchhiking.

19-year-old British man, Chris McK­er­nan, said his case of the hic­cups started Nov. 20 and he has since been hic­cup­ing an aver­age 25 times per minute for a total of more than 1.4 mil­lion hic­cups!  McK­er­nan said folk cures such as breath­ing into a bag, suck­ing on a lemon and stand­ing on his head have failed to stop the hic­cups, and doc­tors were left baf­fled when acid reliev­ing med­ica­tions failed to stop the ail­ment. “Every­one gets annoyed or laughs at me [when I can’t stop hic­cup­ing],” McK­er­nan said.  The world record was set by Charles Osborne of the United States, whose case of the hic­cups lasted from 1922 until 1990 and totaled an esti­mated 430 mil­lion hiccups.

A Mis­souri woman found out that the times really are a-changin’ when she tried to dia­per her baby on a chang­ing table in a mall restroom — only to have a pair of teenagers inter­rupt her by hop­ping on to do the nasty instead.  Jes­sica Bar­bier says that she placed her infant son on the pull-down table to get him cleaned up when the kids came in to get a lit­tle bit dirty — and when she went to com­plain to mall secu­rity, she was told it hap­pens all the time. Bar­bier says, “It wasn’t like we walked in on them doing it. We were already in there and they walked into the room. I don’t want my kids around that.”
