A Day In The Life: Camels, Hunger Strike, Nazis, Fencehoppers, and a Surprise Baby

Good Day World!

Up early as usual.

Still dark outside. Hunched over my PC sharing thoughts in a blog post for tomorrow.

This may come as a surprise to you; camels don't store water in their hump. Instead the hump is packed with energy-rich fat deposits. Who knew?

I heard Irom Sharmila, one of India's most prominent political activists finally ended her 16-year hunger strike. She was force-fed through a tube in her nose by the police since November 2000.

I can't even imagine that. Talk about a dedicated person. Activists in the USA get butt-hurt when they're locked up overnight.

Can you believe people are still hunting down Nazis? Investigators recently identified eight suspects from the Stutthof Death Camp in Poland.

Reminiscent of White House fencehoppers (not to be confused with grasshoppers), but across the pond: 

A drunk climbed over the security fence around the grounds of Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II's official residence recently. 

The fellow didn't resist arrest and was quickly trotted off to London Tower to be tortured...GOT YA! Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.

I want to leave you with something awe inspiring. Here's a story of a woman who delivered her own baby in the back seat of a car while en route to the hospital.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
