Wacky… But True, June 13th

A raccoon spotted in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, Tuesday morning scaled a building and got to 20 stories up. The poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge. (Image: twincities.com)

Apparently, working your brain 16 to 18-hours a day is not a good thing. Researcher Maiken Nedergaard at the University of Rochester wants to remind us that we “sleep to clean our brains.” The researchers found that during sleep, the space between brain cells increased by 60% in mice. This allowed the cerebrospinal fluid in the animals’ brains to flow ten times faster than when awake.

And police were called to a restaurant in Elgin, Ontario, Monday night. There they found what they describe as a “hungry” patron waiting to complain about the restaurant. A 32-year-old woman and her 10-year-old son called police because their pizza order had not been prepared on time. Police educated the woman on the appropriate use of 911.
