As the November presidential election looms, with incumbent Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump squaring off again, some voters say they would like to see literally anybody else on the ballot — and Literally Anybody Else, of North Richland Hills, Texas, wants to give them that chance. A 35-year-old seventh-grade math teacher who legally changed his name from Dustin Ebey, the candidate says his goal is to inspire change. "Literally Anybody Else isn't just a person, it's a rally cry," he told NBC-5 Dallas-Fort Worth. By May 13, he needs the signatures of 113,151 registered voters in order to run as an independent candidate.


We've heard of dogs and cats going missing, only to turn up at their owners' doorsteps weeks, months or even years later. Now we can add snakes to that list. The BBC reported that the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was recently called to a residence in Spennymoor, County Durham, to rescue a 3-foot-long corn snake atop a garage roof. When a neighbor came by to see the rescued critter, she recognized it as her pet snake, Agnus, who had been missing for a year. RSPCA inspector John Lawson was surprised the snake had survived out in the cold for so long. "The vet believes Agnus had gone into brumation mode, similar to hibernation, and her body had shut down in order to survive," he said.

Male pattern boldness

It turns out that fugitives have feelings, too. After the Avon and Somerset police posted a wanted notice on April 1 describing fugitive Daniel Kellaway as "white, about 5 ft. 9 in., of average build, with brown eyes and a receding hairline," Kellaway replied on Facebook, "No need to mention the hairline, guys." While social media users got a kick out of his comical post, authorities warned the public not to approach him and to call authorities if he is spotted.

Honk if you wanna dance

Young people are cutting loose in Cambodia, but rather than embracing the spirit of it all, the Guardian reports that Prime Minister Hun Manet is cracking down on the source: vehicle owners who replace their cars' standard horns with ones that blast popular tunes. So enticing are these familiar refrains that young Cambodians are literally dancing in the streets, which the prime minister says poses a traffic hazard. He has directed the ministry of public works and transportation, along with Cambodia's police force, to crack down on vehicle operators whose horns emit anything other than the standard honk.

Give me a ring

Cindy Tristani, a cashier at a Burlington supermarket in Uniontown, Pa., looked down at her hand during her shift and realized her wedding ring was gone. Her co-workers joined her in a panicked search, but found nothing. In what she told WPXI-TV was "a long shot," Tristani posted on Facebook: "If anyone was shopping at Burlington Uniontown today, I think my diamond ring might have fell in someone's bag." Lo and behold, customer Cait Giles saw the post and checked her shopping bags. Jackpot! Returning the missing ring "made my heart so full," Giles said. "It was the best moment."
