A video of Jaylon Kerley, a Detroit Tigers' baseball stadium employee, spitting in a pizza before serving it went viral this past weekend, resulting in the employee's immediate dismissal from his position. Shortly thereafter, Kerley was taken into custody and now faces felony charges for violating "food law."




The incident was brought to the public's attention by one of the man's coworkers, Quinelle May, who also tried to report the incident to his supervisors before being told to keep quiet. According to May, his superiors threatened him with criminal prosecution if he did not take the video down:

Every time I tried to talk, they told me to shut up.



May says that Kerley was "mad and having a bad day," at the time the video was captured, but also that he had "done it in the past."

Representatives of the ballpark released a statement saying:

As soon as we became aware through social media of potential food tampering Friday night, we immediately closed that food stand and disposed of all the product. Food safety is our top priority and we will take any appropriate action necessary to protect our guests.

People online were glad to see Kerley face consequences for his disgusting behavior:



Others admitted Kerley's behavior was reprehensible, but thought a four year prison stint might be a bit harsh:




Everyone agreed on one thing, however: we'll be staying away from the Tigers Stadium pizza for a little while.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
