    Detailing Dirtiest Car Ever! First Wash in 37 Years Mercedes 280 SL

    Larry Kosilla of AMMO Auto Care in New York City travelled out to New Jersey to help his client David surprise his father in an effort to convince him to restore the 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL that had been sitting in his garage, untouched for 37 years. During this time an enormous amount of dust, mold and other things grew and gathered in and under the car. David thought that cleaning the car would help sway his father to see the value in restoration for posterity.

    Missouri doctors find venomous brown recluse spider in woman's ear

    https://www.foxnews.com/science/miss...-in-womans-ear

    Doctors in Missouri reportedly pulled a dime-sized brown recluse spider out of a woman’s ear this week after she complained of pain.

    Susie Torres, who hates spiders, told FOX 4 in Kansas City that she woke up Tuesday morning hearing “swooshing” in her ear.

    “It was like when you went swimming and you have all of that water in your ear," she said.

    She initially thought she was having a reaction to an allergy shot, but when she went to the doctor a medical assistant found the eight-legged creature.

    Doctors were able to remove the spider, which didn’t bite her.

    Bites from a brown recluse spider can cause discoloring of the affected area and flulike symptoms.

    "I went and put some cotton balls in my ears last night,” Torres told FOX 4. “I’m shaking off my clothes and I don’t put my purse on the floor. I’m a little more cautious."

    Bomb squad investigating porta-potty explosion at N.J. construction site, formerly home of The Dump

    A porta-potty explosion Sunday night in Gloucester County prompted scores of comments recalling the film “Christmas Vacation” as cops and the county fire marshal look for clues.

    After receiving a steady flow of reports about an explosion, Washington Township police arrived shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday at an At Home store under construction on Route 42. Construction workers pointed officers to the porta-potties on site, formerly home to a location of the furniture store called The Dump.

    One portable toilet was broken into several pieces, but an adjacent porta-potty was left intact.

    Workers were expelled from the site as police, the county fire marshal and the Camden County Bomb Squad were called in to investigate. The scene was deemed safe just after 10 p.m.

    No one was injured, police said in a Facebook post about the incident, which they believe to be criminal mischief. “No Christmas Vacation, Griswolds, Clark, Ellen, or Cousin Eddie comments please,” the post said.

    The commenters did not listen, posting GIFs of Randy Quaid’s character dumping his RV’s sewage into the storm sewer.

    There is a common misconception that porta-potties can explode due to methane gas buildup from waste, appearing to date back to a 2005 lawsuit. A man who worked at a methane plant in West Virginia lit a cigarette inside a porta-potty, igniting an explosion and leaving him severely disfigured. But that plant had a leaking methane line, he alleged.

    In a March 2005 episode, the Discovery Channel show Mythbusters tested whether the portable toilet could produce enough gas to an explosion. They stuffed a crash dummy into a porta-potty and ignited a flame from a safe distance. But the air vents atop the portable toilet constipated their efforts.

    The Mythbusters crew later sealed all the vents, lit a flare and then pumped the space with methane gas, which explodes at about minute 28 of this video.

    Authorities have not said if any explosive devices were recovered from the scene.

    The Washington Township Police are not turning a brown eye to this case. Anyone with information can reach their Detective Bureau.

    The world’s tallest residential building, Central Park Tower, tops out at 1,550 feet

    Central Park Tower officially topped out on Tuesday, breaking the record set by nearby 432 Park Avenue for the tallest residential building in the world. Reaching 1,550 feet high, the skyscraper at 217 West 57th Street would be the tallest building in New York City if not for the 400-foot spire of One World Trade, as New York Magazine reported. Developed by supertall-specialists Extell, Central Park Tower includes a seven-story Nordstrom flagship store and 179 luxury condos.

    Some of the residences were listed for the first time in May, ranging from a $6.9 million two-bedroom to a five-bedroom apartment for $63 million. In 2017, it was reported that 20 of the 179 units will ask for $60 million and above, including a penthouse for $95 million. Closings are expected to begin in the first quarter of next year.

    Developers predict the building will have a sellout of more than $4 billion, which would make Central Park Tower the country’s most expensive condo project ever.

    But the market has slowed for luxury towers, specifically those located on Billionaires’ Row. Jonathan Miller, a real estate appraiser, told the New York Times that 40 percent of seven towers in the Central Park South area are unsold. While sales data for Central Park Tower has not yet been released, the Commercial Observer reported last month that Extell’s other supertall on the Lower East Side, One Manhattan Square, has seen just 173 of 815 condos closed.

    According to a press release from Extell, “Central Park Tower’s beautiful facade features combined elements of glass, satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal details that accentuate the interplay of texture and light. At a height of 300 feet from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.”

    The 131-story tower was designed by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and includes three full floors of amenity space, dubbed the Central Park Club. The club spans 50,000 square feet and features an outdoor terrace with a pool, a wellness center with an indoor pool, and a massive ballroom and cigar bar on the marketed 100th floor.

    Smith designed Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the current tallest building in world, and the Jeddah Tower, the soon-to-be tallest, a 3,280-foot tower in Saudi Arabia. In an interview published Monday, New York Magazine architecture critic Justin Davidson asked the architect if Central Park Tower could have been taller if local zoning had allowed it.

    “Oh yeah,” Smith said. “Jeddah Tower is twice the height of this one. You could drop that in here for sure.”

    This WWII veteran wants 100 birthday cards for his 100th birthday


    James South is about to hit a big milestone in his life and he’s hoping others can help him celebrate by mailing him a birthday card.

    South turns 100 on October 7 and his birthday wish is to receive 100 cards. It’s a wish his assisted living home is trying to make come true.

    Brookdale Senior Living in Watauga, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth, posted an image of South with a sign on Facebook on Friday.

    “Hello! My name is James South and I am a proud World War II Veteran! I will be turning 100 on October 7th, 2019 and I would like to receive 100 birthday cards,” the sign reads.

    South grew up in northeast Texas in a large family of sharecroppers, his son, Jim South, told CNN. He joined the Army in 1940 and was deployed to Normandy seven days after D-Day. During his service, his girlfriend Sophie wrote him a letter every day.

    “They were married for 55 years until she passed in 2001,” said Jim South, who is the couple’s only child.

    Since retiring at the age of 65, South has stayed active by woodworking, growing his garden, playing golf, and attending church, his son said. It was only last year at the age of 98 that he moved into Brookdale.

    Jim South said he has a three-day celebration planned for his dad’s big birthday that includes playing golf, eating chicken fried steak and catfish at his favorite restaurants and spending time with his family.

    “My dad taught me that a hug is better then a handshake,” said Jim. “And that money wasn’t the goal in life — it was happiness.”

    South plans on hanging the cards on a wall in his room and Jim said they have already contacted the local post office about a possible increase in mail.

    Brown v. Board of Education was the landmark Supreme Court case that ended racial segregation in schools in 1954. But it wasn’t the first to take on the issue. Eight years earlier, in 1946, a group of Mexican American families in California won the very first federal court case ruling that segregation of public schools was unconstitutional.

    A Wisconsin prisoner just reportedly confessed to the 'Making a Murderer' killing

    A Wisconsin prisoner has confessed to a brutal murder that's the subject of Netflix's "Making a Murderer," the director of a new documentary told Newsweek.

    The inmate was being interviewed by filmmakers for an upcoming documentary series called "Convicting a Murderer," an unofficial sequel of sorts to the hit Netflix series, when he said he was responsible for killing Teresa Halbach, the photographer whose death in 2005 was the focus of "Making a Murderer," the director said.

    Newsweek reported that the prisoner's name wouldn't be released until law enforcement in Wisconsin can verify a confession.

    The director of "Convicting a Murderer," Shawn Rech, told Newsweek that the inmate was a convicted killer.

    "We haven't confirmed the legitimacy of the confession, but seeing as it was given by a notable convicted murderer from Wisconsin, we feel responsible to deliver any and all possible evidence to law enforcement and legal teams," Rech said.

    He also said that the documentary, which has "been in production for 20 months," had "uncovered an unfathomable amount of information and evidence" about the murder.

    Newsweek reported that the new docuseries would feature law-enforcement figures who believe that Steven Avery, the man convicted of murder in Halbach's death in 2007, is guilty. That's a change from the original show, which suggested that Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was convicted of being an accessory to murder, were innocent. Both men have maintained their innocence.

    Rech told Newsweek that he wasn't satisfied with "Making a Murderer."

    "After doing a little bit of follow-up research I learned that not only did I not have the whole story, but I was misled by the series," Rech said.

    Should the unnamed inmate's new confession stand, both Avery and Dassey could be released from prison. When "Making a Murderer" aired in 2016, it sparked outrage over the treatment of the two Wisconsin men and led some to support their exoneration.

    Avery and Dassey have consistently appealed their convictions since 2007, but both remain incarcerated in Wisconsin. Avery is serving a life sentence without parole, while Dassey is serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole.

    Representatives for Avery didn't immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment. A legal representative for Dassey declined to comment.

    A spokesperson from the Wisconsin Department of Justice told Insider in a statement, "The Wisconsin Department of Justice has received the new information related to the case. DOJ takes all credible reports seriously, but it's important to note that this new information directly contradicts information previously provided by the same individual."

    Samuel L. Jackson’s voice is coming soon to an Amazon Alexa device near you

    Say Alexa again.

    If you want to hear Samuel L. Jackson's voice coming out of your Amazon smart speaker, you'll be able to.

    Jackson's voice will be available thanks to neural text to speech, Amazon's David Limp said Wednesday. Neural Text to Speech will be able to mimic celebrities' voices, with their permission, Limp added.

    Enabling Jackson will cost .99. CNET's Ben Fox Rubin noted it's not yet clear if the cost is per celebrity. The feature will roll out later in the year.
