The Grubhub Kid

Remember that old TV show, Kids Say The Darndest Things? They are also likely to do the darndest things, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Take the Grubhub Kid in Chesterfield Township, MI, better known as six-year-old Mason Stonehouse. His dad, Keith, let him play with his cell phone one evening unaware that he had left his Grubhub app open. All of a sudden a stream of delivery drivers were knocking at the door with arrays of fast food orders– some $1,000 worth of shrimp dishes, pita wraps, French fries and lots and lots of ice cream and pizzas. According to CNN, it took Keith a while but he finally figured it out and confronted his son. “I was trying to explain to him that this wasn’t good,” he said. But, he added, Mason put his hand up and interrupted him saying, ‘Dad, did the pepperoni pizzas come yet?’  I had to walk out of the room.  I didn’t know if I should get mad or laugh.”




It was a very close call

There they were, the Sasaki family, getting ready for an evening of TV in their new home in Honolulu when the unthinkable happened, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Three giant boulders came rolling down a hill and one of them smashed through a wall, causing havoc and narrowly missing Caroline Sasaki just as she made her way into the living room to watch TV. It was a close call but no one was injured. How big was the boulder? It was big enough to crash through a cinderblock outer wall, hit the family car, break through a glass door into the living room and then break through another wall, winding up in a bedroom.




A dream come true

Nine-year-old Molly Sampson of Calvert County, MD dreams of becoming a paleontologist when she grows up; she wants to study the history of life on Earth, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Meantime, she likes to search the local beaches for sharks’ teeth and recently came across a rather large tooth that belonged to the biggest shark that ever lived — a giant 15 million-year-old shark known as a Megalodon. She took it to the Calvert Marine Museum on Solomon’s Island where the paleontology department confirmed her find.
