An Indonesian farmer appears determined to get it right as he plans to marry for the 88th time.
Rice farmer Kaan, 61, has been married 87 times to 46 different women, according to Knowyournews.com.
Even his latest bride isn’t all that new to him, since he was married to her previously — for only four months.
It’s not known what has changed since, but Kaan certainly is willing to take chances.
His longest marriage reportedly lasted 14 years. His first came when he was 14 years old.
Kaan told Indonesian news outlets he chooses to get married instead of just dating women because “I also didn’t want to play with women’s feelings, let alone other people’s children. Rather than committing immorality, it is better that I get married.”
SUBS COMING TO VENDING MACHINES
The American version of Subway is going to sell premade subs in vending machines, according to CNN.
The Grab and Go “smart fridge” made its debut at the University of California San Diego in September 2022, but the company now plans to add more across North America in high-traffic areas like college campuses, airports and hospitals, the company said in a release.
The sandwiches will be made at Subway stores and purchases can be made by customers in a touchless manner.
Subway has been selling premade subs in regular fridges in certain locations in the U.S. since 2020.
“As more of our guests search for dining experiences to meet their ‘in-the-moment’ needs, the brand’s non-traditional locations and platforms can serve them wherever and whenever they are craving Subway,” said Taylor Bennett, vice president of non-traditional development at Subway said in a release.
MAN HAD EARBUD IN EAR FOR FIVE YEARS
A man in the U.K. thought he was going deaf because of issues he’d been having for five years.
It turns out he had a piece of an earbud lodged in his ear.
Wallace Lee, from Weymouth in Dorset, England, thought the hearing loss was just a normal result of his career in the aviation industry or from playing rugby.
But after using a home endoscope kit, Lee found a small white object in his ear and went to his doctor, according to BBC.
He thinks it got stuck when he went on a trip to Australia and bought specific “little earplugs that you can put different attachments in, depending on the noise you want to phase out on an aircraft,” he said.
“One of these little attachments had lodged in there, and it had been in there ever since.”
“[The doctor] initially tried to suck it out… but because it had been in there that long with the build up of the hard ear wax, it wouldn’t move at all,” Lee said.
“So he got these miniature tweezers which they put down this other tube into the ear canal… I could actually feel him tugging, and all of a sudden it went pop.
“Instantly I could hear everything in the room. The fog that was in my head for all those years went and left — and I could hear perfectly well.
THE RUNNING SMOKING MAN
A Chinese man ran a marathon while smoking cigarettes repeatedly throughout, according to CBS.
The runner, who goes by the nickname “Uncle Chen” ran the Xin’anjiang Marathon in Jiande earlier this week.
He ran it in three hours and 28 minutes, even though he was reportedly chain-smoking, Canadian Running said.
Photos of Uncle Chen and his cigarette run even showed up on Chinese social media app Weibo. They have now gone viral.
When people online began questioning the legitimacy of the run, marathon organizers shared his finishing certificate from the marathon.
Apparently the 50-year-old has also smoked while on previous runs.
