Not A Brainy Idea...!

No one can say that the majority of crooks are smart. In fact, many of them might even be considered "brain dead"! From Listverse, here is the story of one thief that was using a brain in a different manner...and the brain was not even his.

The Brain Thief

In July 2016, police raided the home of Pennsylvanian Joshua Lee Long looking for evidence relating to a series of burglaries in the area. They found more than enough to arrest him, but they also found something rather unexpected in a Walmart shopping bag underneath the porch—a jar of embalming fluid containing a human brain. Joshua had named it “Freddy.”

Police are pretty sure that the brain was stolen, too, perhaps from a lab or university. Joshua also found another use for the formaldehyde-based embalming fluid: He’d been spraying it on his marijuana to intensify the high. Pennsylvania State Trooper Bob Hicks astutely summed up the raid: “This is one of those situations where, I think, a lot of guys were surprised.”

I think the guy must have been trying too much of his own product, ya know?

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. Rain is back.

He doesn't look too smart and I guess he wasn't.
