Day 8: Star in a galaxy far far away...

It's certainly not a Death Star, for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that this thing doesn't have any metallic content. It's all plastic and foam. And also, the Death Star doesn't exist.
In 2011, construction workers who were excavating an abandoned lot in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens, New York, unearthed a human body clothed in a white gown and knee-high socks.

When shopping for bargains, it is occasionally necessary for avid bargain shoppers to make some sacrifices in the name of the deal.

The owner of a gas station in Florida has a bizarre problem. He claims that random people have been using the microwave to heat urine.
Parul Patel, owner of On the Fly convenience store and BP gas station in Jacksonville, said that he is fed up of people walking in and using the microwave to warm their container of urine.

Archaeologists have made a baffling discovery in an ancient Roman cemetery located in Umbria, Italy. Earlier this year, scientists stumbled upon the tomb of a 10-year-old child which contained evidence of what is known as a "vampire burial."
According to , the child's skull was found with a stone inserted into the mouth, pointing at a funeral ritual meant to prevent the occupant of the tomb from returning from the grave.
The puzzling sepulcher dates back to the fifth century, a time when Umbria was devastated by a malaria epidemic. While the skeleton has yet to undergo DNA testing, archaeologists are fairly convinced that the child may have been one of the many victims of this terrible disease. The scientists base their assumption on the fact that the skeleton had an abscessed tooth — a known side effect of malaria.
