DELAWARE LOCALS' SURPRISE AS $10,000 IS SCATTERED OVER TOWN FROM A HELICOPTER AFTER DEAD MAN'S FINAL WISH IS GRANTED
Money doesn't just fall out of the sky - except for residents of Lewes, Delaware, who had $10,000 showered over them from above on Saturday afternoon. A helicopter appeared in the sky over the Lewes Harbor and hovered there for five minutes divesting itself of the cash, then flew off. The windfall came courtesy of Leonard Maull, who owned a bait and tackle shop in the town before his death last year. Maull left specific instructions in his will for $10,000 in $5, $10, $20 and $50 notes to be dropped from an aircraft over the Lewes Marina on the first anniversary of his death. Staff at the Irish Eyes pub were working their Saturday afternoon shift when they noticed the helicopter approaching. Server Tina Chaippini told the Cape Gazette that people were running towards the helicopter and returning with fistfuls of money. Local police were aware of the plan and sent an officer to the marina to ensure nothing got out of hand.
OWNER OF JOHN LENNON TOOTH HOPING TO CLONE THE LATE BEATLE
Imagine John Lennon's clone walking the planet. That's just what the Canadian dentist who in 2011 paid more than $30,000 at a U.K. auction for a rotted tooth that once belonged to the late Beatle is hoping will one day become a reality. Dr. Michael Zuk announced via a press release that he's turned over the molar to U.S. scientists so they can determine whether Lennon's genetic code can be extracted from it. "I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John Lennon's DNA, very soon I hope," says Zuk in a statement. "With researchers working on ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality." The dentist added that "to potentially say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock's greatest stars would be mind-blowing."
