Say you're on a first date with someone who starts giving you MEDICAL advice, and they're NOT a doctor. You'd probably think they were a control freak and lose their number, right?
Well, 18-year-old Cheryl Wray from England went on a first date with a guy named Stephen Kittles back in 2009. And while they were in his car, he noticed Cheryl favoring her right side.
She told him it was just a strained muscle from lifting something heavy at her job. But Stephen, who's five years older than Cheryl and works at a bowling alley, said he was still worried and INSISTED she see a doctor.
Luckily, she listened. Because it turned out she had a pre-cancerous TUMOR on her pancreas the size of an ORANGE, and needed life-saving surgery.
In the end, the surgery was successful. And so was the date, because Cheryl . . . who's now 22 . . . ended up proposing to STEPHEN a month after they met. They're currently engaged, and trying to figure out a wedding date.
In case you missed it, Broncos placekicker Matt Prater nailed a 64-yard field goal against the Tennessee Titans yesterday . . . the longest in NFL history. The previous record was 63 yards, and four people had hit it since 1970.
It was in Denver, right before halftime, and the Broncos went on to win 51 to 28.(Search for "Matt Prater Makes Longest Field Goal In NFL History.")
What if you hit the jackpot, but lost the lottery ticket? Tough luck, right? And for the rest of your life, you'd feel like an idiot who COULD have been a millionaire. Well, not necessarily.
About a year ago, someone in Ontario, Canada bought a winning ticket for a jackpot worth $47 MILLION. But they never came forward to collect it. Several months later, someone called in and CLAIMED to be the winner, but they didn't have the ticket.
So officials went to the store where the ticket was sold, checked the credit card records and surveillance video, and determined the person WASN'T the real winner. But it turned out the ticket WAS bought with a credit card.
So last week, 55-year-old Kathryn Jones heard a knock on the door, and opened it to see several lottery officials . . . who informed her that SHE was the real winner.
It turns out Kathryn LOST the ticket before she was able to check the numbers. But they were able to prove she'd won by checking the credit records and watching video from the store.
Kathryn still has to go through some red tape, but she'll be able to collect the money in about 30 days.
