Police Allege Mice Ate Half a Ton of “Missing” Weed

After claiming that mice had eaten a whopping half a ton of weed, eight police officers have been fired from a police force in Argentina.

Over half a ton of cannabis was found to be missing from a police warehouse in the town of Pilar, about 50 miles outside of the Argentine capital city of Buenos Aires.

While the eight Argentinian cops claimed that mice had eaten it, and surprisingly mice eat cannabis a lot more often than one might think, forensic investigators report that they checked out the scene and found no evidence that the mice consumed the missing weed.

The cannabis disappearance was first noticed during an inspection on the warehouse, where it had only been in storage for two years. Out of the 6,000 kilograms of cannabis that had been documented and stored there, only 5,460 kilos were found. That means 540 kilograms of weed were missing. It sure would take a lot of mice to eat hundreds of kilos of cannabis, and that sure is a gigantic warehouse.

It was noted to be suspicious that Javier Specia, the city’s former police commissioner had left that inventory for impounded cannabis unsigned, unrecognized when he left his post in April of 2017.

The missing weed was noticed by commissioner Emilio Portero, the man’s replacement and so he notified authorities who came to perform an inspection on the warehouse.

The former employee Specia gave the same explanation as three of his peers and subordinates: that mice had eaten the entire missing 540 kilograms of weed. However, forensic experts presumably found no evidence of mice being in the facility, along with the obvious fact that it would take an extremely unusual number of rodents to accomplish such a feat.

“Buenos Aires University experts have explained that mice wouldn’t mistake the drug for food, and that if a large group of mice had eaten it, a lot of corpses would have been found in the warehouse,” said a spokesperson for judge Adrián González Charvay.

Surprisingly however, they may have put a little bit of effort into concocting that alibi for the missing tree if mice in fact didn’t eat it: mice actually do this all the time.

The fact is, mice and rats are equipped with long, strong whiskers that are very similar to that of a feline, capable of determining to a high degree of accuracy how much space they have to squeeze themselves through something like a door.

To stay alive, rats for example require a whopping third of their body weight in consumption every day.

And guess what? On a slightly unrelated note, multiple studies have inadvertently proven that cannabis is good for mice. A 2014 study about cannabidiol proved that it protected the cognitive function of mice that were afflicted with a characteristic symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and brain trauma: tau buildup.

A 2017 study published in the common journal Nature demonstrated that even low doses of THC administered to rats preserved the learning ability and retentive memory of mice as they grow older, in stark contrast to what most people believe about cannabis.

 

So to the Argentina authorities who may prosecute these people for the missing cannabis: does it really even matter if they took it? It matters that you stole it from people and it’s a plant, but can you blame somebody for stealing from a thief?

Video Showing UFOs Swarming Navy Warship is Real, Pentagon Confirms

Late last month, reports emerged that a number of U.S. Navy guided missile destroyers sailing off the coast near Los Angeles encountered a swarm of strange unidentified flying objects or drones in 2019. While Navy investigators looked into the strange incident, no explanation has since been given.

However, new footage has been leaked to documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell that shows the strange flying objects swarming above one of the ships, and the Pentagon has confirmed that the videos are authentic.

“I can confirm that the referenced photos and videos were taken by Navy personnel,” a Department of Defense spokesperson told Futurism.

In the brief footage, which appears to have been recorded with night vision cameras, triangular or pyramid-shaped objects can be seen hovering above the deck of a Navy destroyer.

According to Corbell, the Pentagon has gone to great lengths to disavow any connection to the swarming UAVs.

“This was taken on deployment from the USS Russell,” Corbell told Mystery Wire. “It shows what they described as vehicles. And they made a great distinction. They made sure in this classified briefing, they made a great distinction that this is not something that we own either a black project, this is not something of a foreign military, that these were behaving in ways that we did not expect.

“And that they were you know shaped non aerodynamically,” he added. “Like pyramids, these are flying pyramids!”

The video, as well as a number of photos from the incident, have all been gathered by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, a group tasked with investigating encounters between the different service branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and a number of unidentified flying objects.

While officials have been baffled by the unknown flying objects, in recent years the Pentagon has been more vocal about past encounters, which they describe as having been frequent. Officials have also discouraged the use of the acronym “UFOs,” instead opting to describe them as unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs.

Prince Philip Joke About Reincarnating as Deadly Virus to ‘Solve Overpopulation’ Resurfaces

The Friday announcement of the death of Prince Philip elicited a range of reactions on social media, with some users eulogizing the late royal while others used the occasion to heap mockery upon the British monarchy.

However, others also shared an old quote from the Prince Philip where he bizarrely suggested that after he died, his wish would be that he is reincarnated as a deadly virus in order to help solve the so-called problem of overpopulation.

The decidedly anti-social quote was taken from a 2009 article published by The Guardian that listed out a number of controversial and generally distasteful quotes from the Queen’s husband on various subjects.

The full quote read: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.”

Tweeting a screenshot of the quote, user Riya said: “WHAT THE F*CK.”

While others replied to the misanthropic quote with a reference to the ongoing pandemic:

The Daily Express notes that the quote originates from a joking comment about deadly viruses that the prince made in a 1988 interview with Deutsche Press-Agentur. The quote was also widely shared during the initial outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Buckingham Palace announced the death of Prince Philip, royal consort to Queen Elizabeth II, on Friday morning.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the announcement read. “His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

Company Sells Sex Robot ‘Clones’ Of Dead Partners Using 3D-Modeling Technology

For many people who have lost their significant others, sex dolls have provided one way to ease the pain of grief and loneliness.

However, sex robot company Lux Botics is taking things one step further – by offering a clone of dead partners using state-of-the-art three-dimensional modeling.

With demand for sex dolls booming amid the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns across the world, Lux Botics is offering “ultra-realistic humanoids” to satisfy the carnal needs of the singles without any other recourse.

The company’s flagship “Adult Companion” model called Stephanie goes for USD $6,000 on the Lux Botics website.

The model includes speech control, facial recognition, a “hyper realistic eyes” option and even the option of implanted real hair, as well as limited AI capabilities.

However, the company also offers the option of creating a facsimile of a lost loved one.

The company can either create a 3D model through detailed modeling prior to it being printed in ultra-fine resolution, or it can rely on photos of the individual.

A mould would then be constructed based on the 3D model, complete with a robot skeleton. The robot is then painted and fitted with the lips, nails, eyebrows and other features the customer chooses.

“We can make robots that talk but we have not made robots that truly walk on their own,” Lux Botics co-founder Bjorn told Daily Star UK. “We hope to develop this in the near future. We can make a large number of body parts that can move in a realistic manner.”

While the company hasn’t yet created body doubles, Lux Botics is offering the choice to customers.

Since the start of the pandemic, people have been desperate to cope with the solitude of self-isolation and lockdown measures. While many have resorted to traditional measures like purchasing a pet or using dating apps, sex doll sales have also skyrocketed as people seek an emotional crutch.
