The operator of a bus museum in Hershey, Pa., thinks that more people might ride public transportation if they knew it was an opportunity to find true love.
Your soulmate could be sitting on a bus.
According to a report by Wireless FlashNews, which e-mails me a “Daily Pop Culture Advance,” the operator of a bus museum in Hershey, Pa., thinks that more people might ride public transportation if they knew it was an opportunity to find true love.
“The bus is very romantic,” Tom Collins, operator of the Museum of Bus Transportation, told FlashNews. “People always talk about how they remember seeing someone on the bus and how that person became their husband or wife.”
So, that special someone could be only a seat or two away on any given bus trip.
“Collins believes the fact that people are confined to a small space and forced to ‘sit pretty close’ sparks fireworks,” explains FlashNews.

This next report by FlashNews may not be news at all to parents. I’m repeating it here only in case you hadn’t noticed that your kids probably are destroying your home.
Now my advice is to just live with it. My guess is you’ll be thankful you had these kids, especially when they start dropping off destructive grandkids who will vandalize your home in even greater numbers.
Accept it. Kids cost money in home repair. Then just enjoy the cute and loving things they do every day ... on your carpet, on your wall, to your furniture.
“According to a study by esure home insurance, British parents will shell out a whopping 1.8 billion pounds this year to repair damage caused by their kids,” said FlashNews. “That breaks down to about $157 spent each year by families to clean up messes like spilled drinks on carpets.”
The report said that “common mishaps include children’s shoving foreign objects into DVD players, plastering the walls with stickers, and breaking beds by using them as trampolines.”
“Then there’s the broken dishware, blocked toilets and smashed televisions at the hands of kids which also leave parents with pricey repairs.”
Sound familiar? Maybe it was a mistake to make you revisit it.
Finally, this just in from the FlashNews feature “Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs.”
“Researchers at Cornell University just studied 52 famous paintings of the Last Supper — including Leonardo Da Vinci’s — and conclude that Jesus’ feast has been ‘supersized’ over the millennium,” said the FlashNews report, which you can find at www.flashnews.com.
The more times artists paint the Last Supper, it seems, the more artists paint into it.
“The main course, bread, and plates at the table in front of Jesus and his disciples have gradually grown in size by up to two-thirds,” explained FlashNews, “probably due to increased production and availability of food.”
