A woman in Wales is awash with fear when it comes to the toi­let. 20-year-old Ney Decino is pet­ri­fied of the porce­lain god, espe­cially when it flushes. “I flush the loo and then run out of the bath­room unless some­one is with me,” Ney says. “The sound of the water sends shiv­ers down my spine. It’s awful. I swear it will swal­low me up.” Appar­ently Ney saw Look Whose Talk­ing Too when she was 11 and there’s a scene in there with a char­ac­ter called “The Toi­let Man” that totally freaked her out. If you feel the same way, you can join her Face­book group called Scared Of The Toi­let Flush.

A seven-year-old New York boy can breathe a sigh of relief now that he’s no longer get­ting in trou­ble in school. For weeks, Hec­tor Flo­res had been anger­ing teach­ers and dis­rupt­ing class by con­tin­u­ously mak­ing whistling noises. Doc­tors slid a cam­era into his lungs and it turns out the kid couldn’t help but whis­tle!  Appar­ently while swim­ming in a pool last month he inhaled a small whis­tle which belonged inside a rub­ber duck! The noise­maker whis­tled every time he laughed or breathed heav­ily. The boy under­went surgery and the device was suc­cess­fully removed.

Accord­ing to Syra­cuse police Arthur Bun­drage went into Alliance Bank and demanded that a teller hand over $20,000.  At first the teller refused, but even­tu­ally handed the weapon­less Bun­drage an undis­closed amount of cash which wasn’t exactly the $20,000 he’d asked for. When Bun­drage real­ized he’d been short­changed, he returned to the bank … while offi­cers were there respond­ing to the rob­bery. He was quickly arrested and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny.
