A guy tired to return a phone and forgot he left his meth pipe in the box…

Here’s another reminder that if you do a bunch of drugs, your cognitive skills WILL decline . . .

A 50-year-old guy named Marvin Cumberworth tried to return a cell phone to a store in North Vernon, Indiana on Friday.  (About 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis.)

But he forgot he was storing his METH PIPE in the box instead of the phone.  And when employees found it, they called the cops.

Cops tracked Marvin down and found a small amount of meth on him.  Then they found a bunch more at his house, along with about six ounces of pot.

He eventually admitted he sells drugs to supplement his income.  So he’s facing charges for dealing.

And he accidentally got his FRIEND arrested too.

40-year-old James Earl was at Marvin’s house when the cops showed up, and also had meth on him.  He’s facing multiple charges for possession and paraphernalia.

Go here for Marvin’s mugshot and go here for his friend’s mugshot.

Survey Says?! Win Kearney Cinema 8!

According to a recent survey, the average American will spend $28,766 on THIS in their life. 

Answer:  Snacks. And sweet snacks are slightly more popular than salty.  |  Go here for more.

More results . . .

Researchers found the average American spends $9.22 a week on snacks, which seems like a pretty conservative estimate to us.

That adds up to $479.44 a year . . . or $28,766 over the course of your entire adult life.

The survey also looked at our snacking preferences, and found sweet snacks are slightly more popular than salty.  37% of people said they prefer sweet stuff, compared to 34% who said salty.  Apparently the other 29% were split.

The survey also asked people about weird food PAIRINGS they’d like to try.  And the #1 vote-getter was French fries with mayo . . . 48% would try it.  (Wow, real risky, America.  You can pretty much try that at ANY fast food place.)

The top strange food pairings we’d like to try also include steak with ketchup, 36% . . . cheddar cheese on apple pie, 21% . . . tuna salad with hot sauce, 15% . . . and chocolate on pizza, 14%.
