The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a man suffered head and body injuries after he hit a mailbox while hanging out a window of a moving vehicle Wednesday evening.

Everyone knows there is nothing in this world more frustrating than standing before a vending machine, hungry and hopeless, as the candy bar or bag of pretzels you have just purchased becomes stuck, refusing to drop. When this happens, most of us try banging on the glass or shaking the machine back and forth, but that never works. But some people have access to resources that could help in this situation. Robert McKevitt, for example, used a giant forklift to shake free a candy bar that had gotten stuck in one of the vending machines at the Iowa factory where he worked. The 27-year-old worker maneuvered an 8,000-pound forklift toward the uncooperative vending machine, lifted it two feet off the warehouse floor, and then let it drop. He did it a few more times until several candy bars eventually came loose, dropping through the chute. He was fired.

An 84-year-old nun was sentenced this week to nearly three years in prison for breaking into a U.S. nuclear weapons complex and defacing a bunker holding bomb-grade uranium. After the protest, the complex had to be shut down, security forces were re-trained and contractors were replaced.
