YOUR CORPS COULD BECOME COMPOST IN COLORADO

This gives a whole new meaning to pushing up daisies.

If you live in the state of Colorado, your corpse could be turned into compost if a certain bill is passed. According to the Denver Post, Bill SB21-006 is a few votes and one signature away from approval.

If approved, the bill would allow people to turn their corpses into earth. Washington State is the only other location in the United States that offers this option to its residents.

Other states like California, New York, and Oregon are also considering similar bills.

The Colorado bill has some limitations. If approved, the bill will prohibit the soil from being combined from the remains of several people without consent. It cannot also be sold or used to grow food for human consumption.

A number of companies are reportedly keen to get involved, the Denver Post reported.

How is a body composted? One company, Recompose, makes human compost by covering corpses with layers of alfalfa, wood chips, and straw.

MAN SELLING HOMEMADE MEALS TO BUY FAST FOOD, WIFE

You can’t separate a man from his cheeseburgers – even if it upsets his wife.

In a post on Reddit’s AITA subreddit, an unnamed woman, 33, got upset after learning that her husband was selling healthy lunches she made for him at work and using the money to get fast food in his office- Cafeteria bought.

According to the woman, she and her husband were on a tight budget when they saved up to buy a new apartment. In calculating her money, the woman said that fast food lunches cost the couple more than $ 300 a month.

To keep costs down, the wife started making homemade, healthy sandwiches for her husband to eat at work. Things started to unravel when her husband didn’t respond to texts asking if he liked the sandwiches.

We apologize, but this video could not be loaded.

The husband then asked his wife to make more than two sandwiches to satisfy his appetite. As the woman was having dinner with one of his coworkers, she was shocked to learn that the coworker was talking about how delicious the sandwiches were while complaining about their prices.

The employee announced that the husband had sold the sandwiches and decided to buy his lunch from the cafeteria instead. After the colleague left, the woman said she and her husband had an argument, and the husband said he hadn’t done anything wrong as he hadn’t technically spent her savings on fast food.

MAN DIES AS A LOCKDOWN PENALTY AFTER 300 SQUATS

A violation of the blocking rules has fatal consequences in the Philippines.

A Filipino man died after police forced him to do 300 squats as punishment for violating strict COVID-19 lockdown rules, the Telegraph reported.

According to his friends and family, 28-year-old Darren Manaog Peñaredondo died in the hospital after suffering a fit as a result of the squat. The official cause of death for the man was “stroke and cardiovascular hypertension”.

Peñaredondo lived in the province of Cavite on the island of Luzon, an area that was strictly closed following a surge in COVID-19 cases in the country. The lockdown measures include a strict curfew at night.

Peñaredondo reportedly left his house after 6 p.m. one day to buy drinking water. The man’s girlfriend, Reichelyn Balce, told the Telegraph that her boyfriend and other curfews were caught by police and driven into the town square. They then had to do hundreds of squat-like exercises while holding their ears.

The group of people was forced to do 300 squats after they couldn’t do them in sync. Peñaredondo reportedly collapsed from exhaustion and was taken home to have the seizure.

Police Lt.-Col. General Trias police chief Marlo Solero has denied police officers used squats as a punishment for curfew violations.

I didn’t think there was anyone more dedicated to an office than Milton Waddams.

In contrast to the character from Office Space, a 90-year-old Japanese woman can claim to be the most dedicated person for her employer.

Guinness World Records recently named Yasuko Tamaki as the world’s oldest office manager. Tamaki has worked as an office manager at Sunco Industries since 1956.

She works there seven and a half hours a day, five days a week.

“I’ve only done what I expected for 90 years, so I don’t know what to say! I’m really touched, ”Takami said to representatives of the Guniness World Record.

The devoted clerk said she was born to help people, so becoming a longtime worker was a given.

Takami said she has no plans to retire anytime soon.
