  • Prospector finds huge gold nugget, even though it's 2016 and not 1851

    "Striking gold" is mainly a term to express when someone gets really lucky nowadays, but by golly, someone has actually done it. A 145-ounce gold nugget has been reportedly found in Victoria, Australia by a real life prospector and could be worth more than A$250,000 ($190,710) when it goes to auction. The big 'ol nugget has been named "Friday's Joy" on account of the day it was found.  SEE ALSO: 'World's largest truffle' is worth thousands but looks like a lot of poop My preciouses. Image: minelab The anonymous prospector initially found a nine ounce tennis ball-shaped gold nugget two feet deep, returning the next day to see if there was more, according to a statement from metal detector manufacturer, Minelab. And alas, gold was struck. Eureka! “About 12 inches below the ground, I could just barely make out the top of something. As I began to scrape away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn't believe my eyes — this wasn't an old piece of steel in front of me," the prospector said in the statement. "I had just unearthed a colossal gold nugget — a once in a lifetime find! I was in total disbelief as I didn't think nuggets of this size were still around." Image: minelab The gold nugget is apparently now safely stowed away in a bank vault, but the prospector did hide it in their oven the first night after it was discovered.  "It's like catching a big fish and not knowing what to do with it! Where do we put it? I washed it in water, covered it in aluminium foil and kept it in my oven on the first night," they said, now planning to purchase a van and travel Australia with their newfound wealth.

The Eagles got the No.2 pick (Carson Wentz) and a 2017 4th-round pick in exchange for No.8 pick (Jack Conklin), a 3rd-round pick (Daryl Worley) a 4th-round pick (Connor Cook) along with a 2017 first round pick and a 2018 2nd-round pick. Max Kellerman is a newcomer to the ESPN show, “First Take.” He voiced his displeasure towards the Eagles trade when he was on the show with Stephen A.

  • Dear Abby: I'll never be OK with dad dating his ex

    DEAR ABBY: I have a complicated family situation. My dad was married to a woman named “Cynthia” for 16 years until they divorced. He met and married my mother the next year.

I cannot express how upset this made me. I realize he’s a lonely old man who would like

  • With no deal, Chargers withdraw offer to first-rounder Bosa

    Joey Bosa's holdout turned ugly Wednesday when the San Diego Chargers pulled their contract offer to the first-round draft pick and said they'll restructure a new deal that would reflect him playing less than a full season. Bosa has missed all of training camp as his agents and the team wrangle over how much of his $17 million signing bonus he'll get up front, as well as offset language in the case he gets cut. The Chargers were counting on the former Ohio State star to help bolster their pass rush and bring some excitement to a season that could be pivotal to their future in San Diego.
