A 30-year-old woman in North Dakota told the cops someone broke into her home and cooked some bacon in the microwave. She said three cans of Bud Light were also gone.

The break-in happened on Monday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. while she was gone. When the woman came home she smelled the scent of bacon.

The suspect has not been caught at this time.

Hero Bus Driver Saves Suicidal Woman

A Buffalo bus driver is being called a hero after stopping his bus to save a suicidal woman on a bridge overpass.

He had just picked up about two dozen high school kids when he spotted a woman on the wrong side of the ledge.

He stopped the bus, asked her if she needed help, and slowly walked towards her.  She was distraught, disconnected, and distant when he got to her and he grabbed her arm and put his arm around her.

He asked her if she wanted to come to the other side of the guardrail and she did… he stayed with her until authorities showed up.

When he got back on the bus the students gave him a big round of applause.

Woman Is Handing Out Fat Letters Instead Of Candy This Year... Cue The Rotten Eggs!

A North Dakota woman is handing out fat letters to some kids tonight, instead of Halloween candy.

The letter is actually meant for their parents and it says, "In my opinion, your child is moderately obese" and should lay off the candy.

The letter asks the parents to step up and ration the candy and not allow them to just eat non-stop whenever they want.

Some parents are calling what she's doing an act of bullying.

Heartwarming Story..  Entire Town Throws Early Christmas For Dying Boy

The town of Port Clinton, Ohio is throwing an early Christmas for a dying 13-year-old boy.

Cancer may keep him from seeing Christmas this year so his entire town has come together to start the holidays right now.

Seriously, everyone is participating… Christmas lights are everywhere, Walmart is donating presents to the family, and he's got a view of a "winter wonderland" from his hospital bed.

The park across the street has a Christmas tree donated by the mayor and is decorated with a star personally wishing him a Merry Christmas.

Hundreds of his neighbors and friends dressed in Christmas colors and sang carols to him from across the street.

Brain Implants Will Connect Us To The Internet By 2020

Technology firms today are working on brain implants that would essential turn us into a living, breathing smart phone.

We can download a 500 page book into our memory, scan our body for diseases or send text messages without lifting a finger.

These firms believe that this technology will be possible as soon as 2020 and the government is investing in it.

But is this kind of technology safe? Does that mean anyone - including the government - could "hack" into our brains?
