After losing bet in Fantasy Football League with high school friends, a man from Arlington, Texas did a thing so outrageous it became viral. He smothered peanut butter all over himself, then, as if that was not enough, walked his dog around the park.
The 25-year-old fantasy league newbie Steven Shrout made the biggest mistake of challenging his high school buddies, who have been playing the game since 2009, way longer than he does.
After his top draft choice, Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers, sat out during the entire season, he was given the choice of whether to do an embarrassing stunt or pay $250. Obviously, he chose the former.
Wearing only a gold speedo whilst covered in peanut butter, he roamed around the park with his dog for 10 minutes. According to him, it was “not a big challenge”, much to the surprise of his friends who didn’t think he would actually do it.
A New York City subway passenger found a purse containing $10,000 in cash on a train platform and turned it in to the proper authorities.
The man spotted the blue Chanel bag one morning in the station at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, and decided to pick it up to see if there was any identifying information inside.
Upon looking inside, he discovered a handwritten note, however, he could not read the note since it was in Russian. The man then tried to locate a subway employee to notify, but he couldn’t track anyone down. He then decided to take the purse home and try to locate the owner.
When he arrived home, he emptied the contents of the purse, and found an envelope containing $10,000 in cash, but unfortunately no identifying information as to who the owner might be.
The man decided he needed to do the right thing and took the bag and its contents to the New York Police Department’s 20th Precinct.
As luck would have it, a woman had arrived at that very same police station that morning to file a report about a lost blue bag that she had dropped in the subway on her way to depart for a trip to Russia.
A South Dakota man has his lost wallet returned with some extra cash thanks to a stranger.
Hunter Shamatt thought he’d never seen the wallet again when he lost it on a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding. Inside was $60 cash and a check for about $400.
Shamatt said he received a package to his home a few days later containing the wallet and a letter from the man who found it.
The stranger wrote that he found the wallet stuck between the seat and the wall of the plane on a flight from Omaha to Denver. He added $40 of his own money so that Shamatt would have “an even $100” to celebrate the return of the wallet.
“Hunter. Found this on the Frontier flight from Omaha to Denver, row 12 seat F, wedged between the seat and the wall. Thought you might want it back.
“I rounded your cash up to an even $100 so you could celebrate having your wallet back. Have fun,” the stranger wrote to him.
The stranger only signed the letter with his initials.
Shamatt was able to thank the man after tracking down his return address in Omaha.
