Not a headline but still weird … how did that car get there?
Reminds me of a police car crash near my Workplace in 2008 (both Officers OK but a bit embarrassed)

'A small crowd gathered to watch the wreckage being hoisted from the basement, while part of the square was cordoned off as police carried out an investigation into the collision. One onlooker said he got a curt reply when he asked if the driver had been breathalysed'.

Capricorns need not apply: is it legal to pick a roommate by astrological sign?

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/apr/22/roommate-astrology-zodiac-discrimination

Is choosing a roommate based on their astrological sign simply a preference, or illegal discrimination? It may depend on where you live.

This week, a post sharing the response to a housing inquiry went viral when the applicant was turned down for their zodiac sign of Capricorn.

Capricorns are a minority. They only make up about 1/12 of the population.
