Dateline: Canada—Police in Ontario have announced who they call their dumbest crook of 2010. According to the Chatham-Kent Police Service in southwestern Ontario, there was a home burglary late last year and police appealed for the public’s help in identifying the thief. After local media published details of the crime, Constable Michael Pearce says he reported to work and found a voicemail from a man who was upset the report wasn’t detailed enough. The unidentified man went on to say that he had stolen way more stuff than was listed and hadn’t done it alone, either. He then listed the names of two friends who helped out. “He provided a recorded confession, hurting all their chances at trial,” Pearce told the QMI news agency.

Cow’s milk is for baby cows. Human milk is for baby humans. Animals in the wild do not drink the milk of a different kind of animal. No adult animal in the wild drinks milk! Just as all animals are not alike, so the milk from cows, goats, pigs and humans is not alike. Cow’s milk is designed to quickly create a huge, big-boned adult animal in only two years. So if you are fat and if you drink cow’s milk and eat cheese and ice cream made from cow’s milk, do not expect to lose weight!
