New Strongest Brew in the World
We have been following the heated competition for the title of Strongest Beer in the World for some time. But now, a new beer has claimed the record with an impressive 65% ABV. The beer is called Armageddon and was brewed by Brewmeister in Scotland. This new beer is 16 times stronger than your average beer and considerably stronger than your average liquor.
The previous record holder was from German brewery Schorschbrau with their Schorschbock Finis Coranat Opus which weighed in with an ABV of 57%
Schorschbrau won the title after many exchanges with BrewDog Brewery. (both brewerers are scotish).

The two breweries went back and forth with the title as BrewDog broke the record with their Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32% ABV), then Sink the Bismark (41% ABV), and finally BrewDog’s strongest (and weirdest) End of History which had an ABV of 55%  and was served in stuffed rodent koozies.  The name End of History was chosen to represent the end of the ABV brewing war, but Schorschbrau answered back with a beer 2% stronger.
But now Armageddon has claimed the crown with a daunting name and an increase of the record by 8%. The 330 ml bottles retail for about £80. This is considerably less than End of History’s $750 price tag.

As for taste Brewmeister describes the beer as such.
“Despite being 65%, this beer has lots of flavour. It’s slightly sweet, hoppy, malty and retains much of the yeast present during fermentation. Bottles are conditioned but we recommend people drink this in 35ml measures. So drink with friends to save it going flat.”

A woman who drank half a bottle of hand sanitizer was arrested for drink driving.
Jennifer Wilcox, 36, from Connecticut, was pulled over by police on suspicion of DUI after she was spotted driving erratically and almost crashed into a parked car.
The patrol officer smelled alcohol but the 36-year-old denied drinking.

But she later admitted to downing half of a large bottle of hand sanitizer.
Medical experts said a 20z bottle of the liquid contains about the equivalent in alcohol of four vodka shots.
Wilcox, from Middlebury, Connecticut, is thought to have drank the equivalent of 32 shots giving her blood alcohol level of 0.17

Dr Ibrahim told News 8 drinking hand sanitizer is on the rise nationally.
He said the anti-bacterial has a higher percentage of alcohol than any liquor you can buy over the counter.
'It's the same alcohol in beer, in wine and Jack Daniels, however, it is more concentrated,' Dr Ibrahim said.
Bottles of alcohol typically have a ethyl alcohol content of mroe than 60 per cent.
A mini bottle of hand sanitizer contains the same amount of alcohol as four shots of vodka.
A big bottle contains 32 shots of vodka. Wilcox said she drank half of a big bottle - the equivalent to 16 shots of vodka.

School Bus, Truck Crash In Pennsylvania - Without Drivers                                    

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. — Police don't plan to cite the drivers of a truck and school bus which crashed in western Pennsylvania.
But only because neither vehicle had a driver when they wrecked.
                                                                        
Police in Patterson Township tell the Beaver County Times ( ) the incident happened just before 10 a.m. Tuesday when the parked bus began to roll down a hill. Police aren't sure why that happened, because the driver had engaged the parking brake. http://bit.ly/UBPOwQ
The bus rear-ended a parked truck, which also began rolling down the hill alongside the bus, until the truck flipped onto its side. The bus continued on, shearing off one utility pole and hitting another before rolling to a stop a few feet from the porch of a home.
Nobody was hurt.

Catarina Migliorini Sells Virginity For $780,000; Male Virgin Alex Stepanov Gets $3,000                                     
By losing something, Catarina Migliorini could gain $780,000.
The 20-year-old Brazilian woman has been auctioning off her virginity online for the past few weeks and a man from Japan known as "Natsu" came out on top with the winning bid.
Natsu beat out five other bidders after a feverish final day where the price of Migliorini's virtue jumped from $190,000 on Oct. 23 to the final $780,000 price tag.
The news wasn't so good for her male counterpart, Alex Stepanov, whose virginity only racked up $3,000 from a woman in Brazil named "Nene B."
Although Migliorini, a physical education student, has claimed to media that she planned to donate as much as 90 percent of the auction price to charities that will build homes in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina, even auction organizer Justin Sisely, who devised the plan for a proposed documentary, was skeptical.
"I was surprised she said that because in all my dealings with her, she made it clear that it was a business decision for her," Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely told The Huffington Post recently. "Now, given how big this story is in Brazil, she's trapped. If she doesn't give any money to charity, she's going to look bad."
