YOUR CORPSE COULD BECOME COMPOST IN COLORADO
This gives pushing up daisies a whole new meaning.
If you live in the state of Colorado, your dead body could be turned into compost if a certain bill is passed. According to the Denver Post, Bill SB21-006 is a few votes and a signature away from approval.
If approved, the bill would give people the option to turn their corpses into soil. Washington state is the only other place in the United States to give its residents that option.
Other states such as California, New York and Oregon are also considering similar bills.
The Colorado bill does have some caveats. If approved, the bill will forbid the soil of multiple people’s remains to be combined without consent. It can’t also be sold or used to grow food for human consumption.
A number of businesses are reportedly interested in getting involved, the Denver Post reported.
So how is a body composted? One company, Recompose, creates human compost by covering corpses with layers of alfalfa, wood chips and straw.
The body lies in state for 30 days in a greenhouse-like facility as it naturally breaks down and turned into soil.
MAN SELLS HOMEMADE MEALS TO BUY FAST FOOD, WIFE IRKED
You can’t separate a man from his cheeseburgers — even if it angers his wife.
In a post in the AITA subreddit of Reddit, an unnamed woman, 33, became angered after learning her husband was selling healthy lunches she made for him at work and using the money to buy fast food from his office cafeteria.
According to the woman, she and her husband were on a tight budget as they saved to buy a new apartment. While calculating their funds, the woman said fast-food lunches costed the couple more than $300 a month.
To keep costs down, the woman started making homemade, healthy sandwiches for her husband to eat at work. Things began to unravel when her husband wouldn’t respond to texts asking if he liked the sandwiches.
The husband would then ask his wife to make more than two sandwiches to feed his appetite. When sitting down to dinner with one of his coworkers, the wife was shocked to learn that the colleague talked about how delicious the sandwiches were while complaining about their prices.
The coworker revealed the husband had been selling the sandwiches and chose to buy his lunch from the cafeteria instead. After the colleague left, the woman said she and her husband argued, with the husband stating he didn’t do anything wrong since he wasn’t technically spending their savings on fast food.
The woman vowed never to make lunches for her husband again.
MAN DIES AFTER DOING 300 SQUATS AS LOCKDOWN PUNISHMENT
Breaking lockdown rules has some fatal consequences in the Philippines.
A Filipino man died after cops forced him to do 300 squats as punishment for breaking strict COVID-19 lockdown rules, the Telegraph reported.
According to his friends and family, Darren Manaog Peñaredondo, 28, died in hospital after suffering a seizure as a result of doing the squats. The man’s official cause of death was “stroke and cardiovascular hypertension.”
Peñaredondo lived in the Cavite province on the island of Luzon, an area under strict lockdown after a spike in COVID-19 cases in the country. The lockdown measures include a strict nighttime curfew.
Peñaredondo reportedly left his home after 6 p.m. one day to buy drinking water. The man’s girlfriend, Reichelyn Balce, told the Telegraph her beau and other curfew violators were caught by police and herded into the town square, then forced to do hundreds of squat-like exercises while holding their ears.
The group of people were forced to do 300 squats after they were unable to do them in sync. Peñaredondo reportedly collapsed from exhaustion and was taken home where he suffered the seizure.
Police Lt.-Col. Marlo Solero, the chief of police in General Trias, has denied cops used squats as punishment for curfew violators.
JAPANESE WOMAN NAMED ‘WORLD’S OLDEST OFFICE MANAGER’
Didn’t think there was anyone more devoted to an office than Milton Waddams.
Unlike the character from Office Space, a 90-year-old Japanese woman can lay claim to being the most devoted person to her employer.
Guinness World Records recently named Yasuko Tamaki as the World’s Oldest Office Manager. Tamaki has worked at Sunco Industries as its office manager since 1956.
She continues to work there for seven-and-a-half hours a day, five days a week.
“All I did was doing what I’m expected to do for 90 years, so I don’t know what to say! I am truly touched,” Takami told Guniness World Record officials.
The devoted employee said she was born to help people, so becoming a long-tenured worker came naturally.
Takami said she has no plans on retiring anytime soon.
