Here at BB, we've been carefully monitoring the story of the unattached feet that keep turning up on British Columbia shores. Five have washed ashore so far since last August. Last night, police reported on DNA tests revealing that two of the feet once belonged to the same male and one of the feet was from a female. All of the feet found seem to have disconnected from their owners' bodies via natural decomposition. From CNN:
The five feet were found in running shoes. Four of the shoes were made between 2003 and 2004, according to police, and the other was made in 1999. The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) released photos of the shoes hoping someone can help identify the remains.
"We are asking anyone who may have had their loved one last seen wearing this particular pair of shoes to contact us immediately," (RCMP Constable Annie) Linteau said.

Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
The importance of reading is well documented. About half of America’s unemployed between 16 and 21 years old are functionally illiterate. And there’s an almost direct line between how much you read and your earning potential, with the richest Americans three times more likely to read than those with a household income below $30,000. However, […]
