A woman in Taipei loves yogurt so much, she'll go to any lengths to figure out which of her roommates took the last of her delicious snack from the refrigerator...even if it means launching a full-scale police investigation.


The unnamed woman, a student at Chinese Culture University in Taipei, returned home in November to find her bottle of yogurt discarded in the trash can after someone ate the contents. She immediately confronted her roommates, who all claimed they were innocent of the dastardly deed.

In most cases, the story would end there. But not this time! The woman took her empty yogurt bottle to the police station and demanded local officers open an investigation into which of her roommates was the yogurt thief. To the surprise of almost everyone involved, the police agreed.

When the cops couldn't find any fingerprints on the bottle, they decided to use more drastic measures: DNA testing. The department spent around $500 performing a series of genetic tests on both the roommates and the $2 bottle of yogurt, which ultimately revealed which of the woman's housemates was untrustworthy.

On Twitter, yogurt fans understood the woman's passion for justice:




Others thought bringing criminal charges against a yogurt thief could be an overreaction.

The guilty party is now facing charges of theft, though the police department has come under fire from Taipei's citizens for its misuse of funds and time.

A local resident told Apple Daily:

"It is a waste of social resources. If I were the policeman, I would buy a bottle [of yogurt] to give to her. The cost of manpower and material resources is too great."

An unnamed police officer also likened the entire ordeal to "using a cannon to shoot birds," which seems like a pretty apt metaphor.

A special note to college students everywhere: Sometimes, your yogurt will get eaten. It's okay to be mad, but going to the police may be a step too far.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
