Only in America… Girl Scout Sells Over 300 Boxes of Cookies Outside California Pot Shop

________________________

Last week, a Girl Scout chaperoned by her parent sold over 300 boxes of cookies over the course of several hours near a San Diego marijuana dispensary. Brilliant business acumen? Bad parenting? It depends on whom you ask. The nine-year-old sold 312 boxes of Girl Scout cookies out of a wagon near a legal marijuana dispensary in just two three-hour-trips on Wednesday and Friday. The girl’s father requested that both he and his daughter remain anonymous. The dispensary, called Urban Leaf, thoughtfully promoted the sales of Girl Scout Cookies on their Instagram account. It posted:

Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4 PM! Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with… shopping is more fun with friends anyways.

“GSC” is a marijuana strain flavoured with tastes said to be similar to those used in Girl Scout cookies. Girl Scouts San Diego clarified that scouts can sell from wagons if they have a parent or guardian present. ABC 10 News reported that Alison Bushan of Girl Scouts San Diego said:

So if that’s what they say they were doing… then, they were right within the rules.

However, it’s against Scout rules to set up a booth directly in front of a business. Bushan said:

From a sales standpoint, she’s done all right, but I know that some of my friends have sold 600 boxes just on Sunday walking their neighbourhood. So, there are many ways that girls are being great entrepreneurs.

8 January 2018. Only in Russia… Shashlik for Christmas… on the OUTDOOR Grill

_________________________

This is a real-deal Russian preparing grilled shashlik for CHRISTMAS. I shit you not. I do believe that the eaters are waiting inside… it’s true that shashlik over charcoal is legit to the max, but sometimes we Russians justify the Western view that we’re Europe’s crazy cousins. Not that I’d want to change that…

You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Phallic Feat: Hindu Monk Moves Van With Penis

________________________

Giving up all worldly possessions in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, India’s Sadhu monks display feats of physical strength many of their less-spirited fellow-males can only dream of. One Sadhu, a holy person in Hinduism and Jainism, used his penis to pull a van in a stimulating show of spirituality during the Magh Mala festival annually held in India’s northern city of Allahabad. Each year, hundreds of thousands of Hindu pilgrims gather on the banks of the Triveni Sangam where three holy rivers… the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati…  converge during the Hindu holy month of Magh.

Sadhus reject worldly life in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. They lead a life of celibacy, ascetic yoga, and search for enlightenment; they wander from place to place, surviving off alms and the goodness of others. Renouncing material possessions, some of the Sadhus even go naked and perform feats of physical or mental strength, which they believe can break the cycle of reincarnation. One Sadhu became famous by lifting a 35-kilo (77-pound) brick with his penis at a fair in Pushkar. Hindus revere Sadhus as representatives of the gods. Being a Sadhu is one of the stages of life people expect to pass through.
