Boner Candidate #1: NO SEX? PAY UP

It’s a pretty standard situation to find yourself in on a night out. You’re in a bar with your friends, when you catch the eye of a nice looking stranger who offers to buy you a drink or two. If you’re single, you might say yes to the generous offer and then strike up a conversation with them, eventually exchanging numbers at the end of the night so you can go on a real date another time. Or at least that’s the hope. But after giving out her number to a man she met in a bar, one woman was left feeling pretty shocked when he sent her a rude message the next day about their encounter. Over the weekend, 20-year-old student paramedic Chlo Matthews let a guy buy her a drink on a night out in Hull. They hit it off, she gave him her number… then the unexpected happened. Instead of telling her how nice it was to meet her or ask her out again, the man, known only as Danny, decided to send her a bill for the alcohol he’d bought her. His reason for doing so? Because she didn’t sleep with him.

Boner Candidate #2: WHY WERE THEY HAVING TO CLEAN OUR CLEAN COAL

In 2013, a prominent coal-industry investor named Steven Rickmeier co-founded a company to acquire several coal-cleaning plants, including one at Wellington in the heart of Utah coal country. In an arrangement with Utah’s largest coal producer, the new firm, Bowie Refined Coal (BRC), was to receive substandard coal from nearby mines, blast it with air to separate out sulfur, dirt and other impurities and sell it as fuel. But BRC’s Wellington Dry Coal Cleaning Plant proved a failure, and now its operators have abandoned the 30-acre facility, still contaminated with coal waste, according to documents from the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining (DOGM). State and local authorities are left to clean up the mess and recoup taxes and fines from a nonresponsive company. To make matters worse, the division alleges the Wellington plant illegally sold at least 2,000 tons of the waste to a trucking company, which used it as a road base for a parking lot in 2017. At a 2017 meeting with regulators to explain that violation, Bowie’s then-operations manager, Kyle Edwards, argued that the material wasn’t coal waste but actual product, which it sold for 25 cents a ton. Regulators rejected that assertion, deeming the material regulated coal waste, and ordered Edwards to gather it up and return it to the coal-processing plant for proper disposal. Bowie Refined Coal never complied or offered a plan for recovering the waste, state regulators say. The $2,310 fine, one of many levied against the firm in the past two years, has gone unpaid. Now the plant is locked up and usable coal has been removed.
