It today’s DISCOUNT NEWS we learn about the Dollar Menu Hooker. We also chat about the warm temps and if it’s global warming…PLUS, we talk about if you truly are GREEN!
A Florida woman is facing charges after she allegedly solicited an undercover deputy for sex… in return for some McDonald’s. Christine Baker, 45, met with the undercover on Friday evening. According to Baker’s arrest report, she offered to have sex with the detective if he “bought her two double cheeseburgers off the dollar menu at McDonald’s.” After spending $2.75 on the food, Baker reportedly asked for a “tip,” at which time the detective gave her $60. She then kept $40 and the food and directed him to drive them to a vacant parking lot to “complete the deal.” It was at that point she was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor prostitution charge.
The freakishly warm weather we had in March was mostly due to chance…not global warming,according to a quick analysis ftrom the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. For much of March, temperatures averaged about 18 degrees warmer than usual. The main cause was a wind pattern that brought up warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. This will happen sometimes, but what made it unsualwas that the wind pattern lasted for two weeks they are calling it a once in a century weather event. Good news from this is that were gonna have a decent summer. The early warmth doesn’t hold anything as far as a sign towards upcoming temps.
And here we go. Less than four days after the record Mega Millions drawing, we’re already heading toward our first lawsuit. 37-year-old Mirlande Wilson of Westport, Maryland has come forward as one of the three winners who will split the $656 MILLION jackpot. And Mirlande says that’s the ONLY splitting she plans to do. Mirlande works at McDonald’s. She and some coworkers pooled money to buy lottery tickets. But naturally, Mirlande says the winning ticket WASN’T one she bought from the pool money . . . it was one she bought separately. After taking the lump sum and paying taxes, Mirlande will get $105 MILLION. Maybe. Because if she does in fact have a winning ticket, this is definitely headed to court. It’s just like a recent case in New Jersey . . . and that one did NOT set a legal precedent in Mirlande’s favor. Back in 2009, a construction worker won a $38.5 MILLION jackpot, and claimed he’d bought that ticket separately from his office pool. Three weeks ago, a jury ruled against him, and five of his coworkers were awarded a total of $20 MILLION in winnings
Even though Millennials are arguably the most environmentally educated generation, a study has found that they’re also the least interested and least likely to actually do anything involving the green movement. Information gleaned from 40 years of surveys from high school seniors and college freshmen from the Baby Boomer, Generation X, and the Millennials shows that the last is actually pretty lacking when it comes to being green. Yes, we’re not entirely sure how reliable a study that hinges on surveys given to high school seniors and college freshman can be, but it seems the high school seniors and college freshmen of yesteryear were a bit more responsible, or at the very least, answered questions better.
Here is what a study by the AP found:
- Researchers found that, when surveyed decades ago, about a third of young baby boomers said it was important to become personally involved in programs to clean up the environment. In comparison, only about a quarter of young Gen Xers – and 21 percent of Millennials – said the same.
- Meanwhile, 15 percent of Millennials said they had made no effort to help the environment, compared with 8 percent of young Gen Xers and 5 percent of young baby boomers.
- Millennials also were the least likely to say they’d made an effort to conserve electricity and fuel used to heat their homes.
- In the case of heating fuel, 78 percent of young baby boomers and 71 percent of young Gen Xers said they cut back, compared with 56 percent of Millennials.
