Good News: Giant Checks, Lucky Dogs, and Parrots on Zoom
Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .
1. A guy named Torry Nielsen showed up at lottery headquarters in Nebraska this month to claim his TEN-DOLLAR jackpot. He won ten bucks on a scratcher and wanted a photo with a giant check, so they played along. When asked what he planned to do with his winnings, he said, “Let it ride.” (Here’s a photo.)
2. A bunch of employees for the Kansas City Royals saved a dog that climbed into a woman’s engine compartment. It rode under her hood for a HALF-HOUR on her drive to work, but it’s okay. They got it out and managed to track down the owners. (Here’s a video.)
3. A new study found parrots like Zoom. When researchers let them make video calls and contact other birds, they showed less signs of being lonely.
4. A set of quadruplet brothers just opened their own Jersey Mike’s franchise in New Jersey last week. They’re 25 years old, and all worked at a Jersey Mike’s in high school. They started talking about opening their own store back then, and finally made it happen. (Sadly, none of them happen to be named Mike.)
