Yes, you read that correctly! It apparently is a saying with a true meaning! A teen mugger in Brazil recently stole a gold necklace from a woman. The trio snagged the necklace and ran!

In order to hide the evidence in case they were caught, the teenager swallowed the gold necklace! The police eventually caught the the three muggers. When they were questioned where the necklace was, they told them one of the had swallowed it. The main suspect was taken to a nearby hospital where x-ray’s showed the gold chain.

The teen was then hauled to jail after the x-rays, because doctors gave the go ahead. The doctors told the teen and police he will eventually pass the chain naturally. Now the real question is, does the woman actually want the chain back after all of this? That we don’t know, but the chain will be put into evidence once it has naturally passed!

Earth Day: How Good Is Nevada At Recycling?

Earth Day is April 22. The national day when people spread awareness about protecting the planet.

Typically, Earth Day is when people do things like pick up litter or planting a tree. Over the last 53 years, the holiday has gathered over one billion followers who participate in events all over the globe. According to Wikipedia, followers of Earth Day come from over 193 countries.

There are some events happening in Las Vegas for Earth Day.

Findlay VW is doing a community clean up from 9 to 11am starting in the parking lot of Sam & Ash Law. 1108 South Casino Center Boulevard. Hosted by Findlay Volkswagen in Henderson, they expect about 100 volunteers to help clean up the community. Cleaning supplies and snacks will be provided. You can register for the event here.

UNLV is hosting their first annual Global Paint and Recycling Rebels day. In the parking lot of the Thomas & Mack Center, the event will be from 9am to noon. Hosted by the Global Paint for Charity and UNLV’s Recycling Rebels. The community is invited to bring old paint to recycle, along with electronics like computers and cell phones. Traditional recycling products like plastic, aluminum and glass will also be accepted. More details, including a list of what is being accepted, can be found here.

There are additional clean-up events happening on other days in Clark County. Get information on those events here.

There are other ways to honor Earth Day in Las Vegas.

If you’re not able to attend a clean up event but still want to celebrate Earth Day, there are lots of ways. You can conserve water by taking a shorter shower, turning off the tap while brushing your teeth, or making sure the dishwasher is full. Buy a pot of flowers that attract pollinating bees. Or take a walk around your neighborhood and pickup trash. Just a few examples. You can get these and more ideas at

Of course something else we can do for Earth Day is something we should be doing everyday. Recycling. But how does Nevada compare to the rest of the country in our recycling habits?
