This gives a whole new meaning to "open bar". 
 
Starting up your own business can be good - but not the way this guy did it. A transient in California named Travis Lloyd Kevie broke into an out-of-business bar, reopened it and served patrons for two days before being caught! Kevie accumulated around 10 to 12 bottles of hard liquor and several cases of beer and served an estimated 30 customers a day over one weekend. He apparently had the town fooled - a local newspaper did a story on the reopening which quoted Kevie as saying operating the bar was "a dream come true." Cops eventually recognized Kevie from previous run-ins and arrested him. His "dream" was more like a delusion!
 
A New Kind of Sports "Drink"
Move over Gatorade, because scientists have discovered a new kind of sports drink ... that you don't even have to drink! Scientists believe they've come across a carbohydrate solution that athletes can rinse with and spit out while reaping similar results as from drinking a sports drink. We won't get into the detailed, scientific specifics of how the body works during exercise, but here's the gist: you need carbohydrates for your body to function - especially when exercising for over an hour (think: marathon running). Until now, athletes have consumed sugary beverages, a la Gatorade, or food to get the carbs but this runs the risk of causing cramps. Swishing and rinsing with a carbohydrate solution seems to trigger the brain, which prompts the muscles, which spurs the athlete on ... and all without the cramping. Tah-dah!
