Sharisha Morrison of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and her neighbors have been the recipients since Jan. 1 of an odd gift: plastic grocery bags with slices of bread and bologna inside, delivered by an unknown man.

At first, Morrison told KOB TV, she thought the food deliveries were acts of kindness, until she opened the bag and smelled the contents.

"It smelled like urine," she said.

Morrison said she can watch the man on her surveillance camera. "He'll just walk up and drop it on the little doorknob and walk away," she said. "I just want it to stop."

Police have told her they can't do anything unless they catch him in the act. [KOB TV, 1/29/2019]


Zack Pinsent, 25, from Brighton, England, hasn't dressed in modern clothing since he was 14 years old.

Instead, he makes and wears clothes that were popular in the 1800s.

"At 14, I made the symbolic decision to burn my only pair of jeans in a bonfire. It was a real turning point," Pinsent told Metro News.

On a typical day, Pinsent wears a floral waistcoat and knee-high leather riding boots, along with a jacket with tails and a top hat. He explains that his obsession started when his family found a box of his great-grandfather's suits. He now researches, designs and sews clothing for himself and other history buffs, to great response:

"I've been all over the world and people are inquisitive and appreciative," he said. [Metro News, 6/27/2019]
