My lucky stars! - Rune Thomassen said he and his fam­ily went to their cabin Sun­day nearOslo,Norway and imme­di­ately saw a hole in the roof.  The fam­ily went inside and dis­cov­ered the cul­prit was a mete­orite that had crashed through the roof at some point dur­ing the win­ter. Knut Jor­gen Roed Ode­gaard, an astro­physi­cist at the­Uni­ver­sity ofOslo, said only 14 mete­orites have been found inNor­way since 1848.

 On a scale of one to 10 - you have to give a very ded­i­cated des­ig­nated dri­ver in Nebraska an 11 — because that’s her age.  Cops pulled over a pickup truck that kept swerv­ing and hit­ting the curb because they assumed they’d find a drunk behind the wheel. They were wrong — they found three drunks sprawled out in the pas­sen­ger seats, but a totally sober fifth grader gamely try­ing to drive her mom and mom’s pals home.

 The Mother of all crimes - A store clerk in Penn­syl­va­niaturned in a wanna-be crook for using a stolen credit card — which he swiped from her own mother!

He admit­ted to the crimes and was sent to Lan­caster County Prison.
