It’s Monday–welcome back to the week. Here are a few curious nuggets to let you know what’s been happening as of late.
Teen Tweets Terrorist Threat to American Airlines
A 14-year-old girl got herself in hot water Sunday when she tweeted to American Airlines, “I’m part of Al-Qaida and on June 1st I’m going to do something really big bye.” Shockingly, no one at the airline was laughing. Within minutes, they tweeted back to say she was being reported to the FBI. So what’s a plucky teenager to do? After pleading and swearing up and down it was a joke, she simply had to marvel at her instant fame after it went viral: “Over 20k followers yay!” At least she had her priorities straight. Moral of the story: Do not joke about national security, friends! Photo: Twitter

Researchers say the association between daytime napping and early death could be because napping itself is sometimes a marker for underlying respiratory problems. Photo: Alamy/Daily Mail
