** This sounds like some mix of astrology, superstition, and an old wives' tale, but apparently there's actual data to back it up. A new study found that the MONTH when someone is born makes a big impact on their future career. 

 It's hard to figure out the science behind it . . . there are theories about things like the amount of sunlight pregnant women are exposed to, or the allergies children are more prone to in different seasons.  But no one's really sure. 

 All they know is that data has shown people born in certain months end up in certain careers more often.  Here are the findings . . . 

 JANUARY.  Lots of doctors and debt collectors, fewer real estate agents.

 FEBRUARY.  Lots of artists and traffic cops, fewer physicists.  Also, people born in February are most prone to narcolepsy.  (???) 

 MARCH.  Lots of pilots and musicians. 

 APRIL.  The only career that's overrepresented in April over time is . . . dictators.  People born in April are also more likely to have lower-than-average IQs, and more health problems.  

 MAY.  Lots of politicians, fewer pro athletes. 

 JUNE.  Lots of CEOs.  Also high on Nobel Prize winners. 

 JULY.  Lots of manual laborers and artists. 

 AUGUST.  Lots of manual laborers and high-ranking politicians.  

 SEPTEMBER.  Lots of people in academia and sports.

OCTOBER.  Lots of politicians.  People in October are also most likely to live the longest. 

 NOVEMBER.  Lots of serial killers.  Also, people born in November are most prone to bipolar disorder. 

 DECEMBER.  Lots of dentists.  Also lots of religious and secular MESSIAHS . .  everyone from JESUS to STALIN and MAO.


** Last week, a woman was busted shoplifting 111 ITEMS from a Walmart . . . and ALL of them were either in her purse or jammed all over her body. 

 48-year-old Christine Troxell Reeder of Monroe, Tennessee, went into the Walmart and put 111 different items in her purse, in her pockets, down her shirt, in her pants, in her socks, and everywhere else she had room. 

 In a testament to Walmart's low prices, the 111 items only came out to $436 total.  And some of the stuff she stole was JEWELRY. 

 She took $72 worth of clothing, $157 in jewelry, $206 in miscellaneous craft items, and a $1 box of Ziploc bags. 

 A security officer at Walmart saw her trying to leave the store with all of the shoplifted stuff and called the police. 

 Christine was arrested for shoplifting. 


 ** No matter how many people meet the love of their life online . . . never forget that it's STILL the home of the sketchiest people on Earth. 

 23-year-old Leah Gibbs met a 21-year-old named Adam Minton on Facebook.  They talked for a little while and eventually decided to go on a date. 

 Adam had Leah pick him up.  That's maybe a TINY bit suspect, but not a red flag.  Then he asked her to drive him to a small casino nearby.  That's a much bigger first date red flag, but again, she just went with it. 

 Then Adam ran inside and asked her to wait in the car.  A few minutes later, he ran back out . . . with a KNIFE in one hand and a BAG OF MONEY in the other.  When he got in the car, he started screaming "Drive, drive, drive!" 

 He made Leah drive him back to his house, and tried to get her to come inside.  At that point she'd FINALLY seen enough, and decided to end the date early.  

 The cops ended up arresting both of them.  Leah spent the night in jail, and wasn't cleared until Adam admitted she hadn't known about the plan. 

Adam ended up getting four-and-a-half years in prison.
