Public works employees called to the scene of a sinkhole just north of Miami, Florida quickly found an electrical cord in the ditch. Turns out the, sinkhole was actually an unfinished 150-foot-long tunnel to a bank across the street. From the New York Times:

“Everybody here is just shaking their heads,” he said. “They could’ve been going for the A.T.M., they could’ve been going for the vault.” But after the would-be bank thief reached the ultimate destination, Agent Leverock speculated, then what?
Inside or near the tunnel, investigators found a wagon that had likely been used to haul dirt, as well as a power generator and a winch, which can be used to haul heavy loads, according to an F.B.I. news release.

We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
