And now it's time for FRIDAY FILES!

In Great Britain, according to the British Medical Journal Case Reports, a woman went to the doctor after a pea-sized lump developed below her left eyebrow. A cyst was visible on an MRI. When doctors went in to remove the cyst, they discovered a rigid contact lens that somehow migrated into the eyelid, according to USA Today. At first, the woman couldn’t recall how the contact lens got stuck in her eyelid. Then her mom remembered the patient losing a lens during a badminton game when she was just 14. Since the woman had no symptoms at that time, she figured the lens had simply fallen out and gone missing.

 

In Hamden, Connecticut, police received several calls from angry motorists about what were described as high-performance, racing-type cars slowing traffic to a crawl. Police say the lead car was filming the other cars, which were blocking both lanes of the highway so no other vehicles could pass. All 10 vehicles were pulled over and the drivers were issued infractions.

 

In Waterville, Maine, the Kennebec Journal reported that Bolley’s Famous Franks faced threats of violence when it changed from crinkle-cut to straight-cut fries in June. Co-owner Leslie Parsons says the change was a financial decision because crinkle-cut fries required special blades that needed to be bought monthly. She says many people felt as new owners they were changing tradition at Bolley’s, which had served crinkle-cut fries since it opened in 1962.

 

In Tbilisi in the country of Georgia, an 18-year-old student solved six Rubik’s Cubes under water in one breath, in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record, which he did. Vako Marchelashvili was submerged in a glass tank for just over one minute and 44 seconds as he flipped, turned and solved the cubes in front of a crowd at the Gino Paradise aqua park.

 

In Waterbury, Connecticut, members of the Mount Olive AME Zion Church came to church last Sunday to discover $3,000-worth of electronics stolen. However, they also found something else. Members of the congregation tell WVIT-TV the thief left a note that said “Pray 4 Me!! Sorry brothers. Save me,” and drew a little sad face. Some members did pray for the thief at a later service.
