  3. For you Florida fans... A woman arrested because her pelvis smelled strongly of marijuana https://www.tcpalm.com/story/news/blogs/off-the-beat/2018/05/16/womans-pelvic-area-smells-like-what/586031002 A deputy stopped the SUV, and a drug sniffing dog “alerted to the presence of narcotics within the vehicle.” Nelsoit, the passenger, had “a strong odor of marijuana emitting from her pelvic area.” Investigators arrested Nelsoit after finding apparent marijuana residue on the passenger seat and floorboard where she was sitting. Nelsoit also reported having pot “stuffed inside of her vaginal area,” an area where items typically are not “stuffed.” At the jail, deputies said she plucked a bag of marijuana from inside her nether regions.

  6. Solo sailor Szymon Kuczyński is sailing non-stop around the world on 22-feet yacht "Atlantic Puffin". From the Mayflower Marina Facebook page: Szymon Kuczynski, the Polish Skipper of a 6,36 metres long yacht is set to secure a new world record for the smallest yacht to circumnavigate the globe, non-stop with no engine, when he returns to Mayflower Marina, Plymouth early next week. Szymon, who set sail from Mayflower Marina on August 19th 2017, has spent over 260 days alone at sea on board his yacht ‘Atlantic Puffin’ whilst undertaking his adventurous sailing expedition. In an incredible feat of skill and determination the award winning solo sailor has taken a classic sea route round the three famous capes of Africa, Australia and South America, with no outer medical or technical support. Szymon has been living in a space of only 4 square metres for nearly ten months and remarkably accomplished this trip without making any stops to ports. Szymon Kuczynski, who self-funded the single-handed sea journey, is expected to complete his bold round the world trip on Tuesday 15th May, when he finishes the demanding voyage by passing his original start point at Plymouth Breakwater. The Atlantic Puffin will then dock at Mayflower Marina where Szymon will be welcomed by friends, family and supporters of his ‘Call of the Ocean’ sailing projects. Szymon says ‘The Oceans still remain the most impenetrable places on Earth. No more than 300 people have sailed single-handed round the world and only 80 sailors achieved this without stopovers and any outer backing. My boat is a strong and brave little thing; it goes very well with the wind, even in stormy weather it manages to keep course and gain altitude! I am very much looking forward to seeing Plymouth on the horizon as I complete my world record attempt, thank you to everyone for the outstanding support’.
