Woman Charged After Huffing Cleaning Supplies That Caused Frostbite In A Walmart

no title

This is somehow both sad and frightening at the same time!

A woman has been accused of huffing cleaning supplies in public last week after shoppers at a Kansas Walmart noticed her getting high in the aisles.

Apparently, Melissa Ann Wright is now facing charges after she was caught on camera abusing the industrial cleaner Ultra Duster.

According to Tama Sawyer of the University of Kansas Poison Control Center, the effects of the computer cleaning supply is so strong, that it can cause your heart to be extra-sensitive to regular hormones like Adrenaline and actually kill you.

But that's not even the worst part, because the chemical also causes frostbite to the skin on contact!

Melissa clearly endured damage to the skin on her face after huffing the cleaner, but refused medical attention at the scene.

Hopefully these charges can lead to Melissa getting the help she needs.

We cannot get over how EXTREMELY clever this idea is!

When industrial designer Sha Yao saw her grandmother suffer from Alzheimer's, she felt hopeless.

According to the Taiwanese entrepreneur:

"When she was diagnosed with the disease I felt frustrated (as do many caregivers) seeing her gradually lose her ability to take care of herself, but there was not much I could do to help."

Specifically, the Master of Fine Arts degree holder saw her grandmother struggle with eating.

However, instead of sitting back, Sha decided to take action.

And that's when the idea for Eatwell was born!

Howie's got some cleaning up to do!

In a world where we capture almost everything someone says on some sort of recording device, and can share it with anyone in a click of a button, we find people must be a lot more careful in what they say.

Howie Mandel is still learning that as he said something on last night's America's Got Talent that upset quite a few people.

As the fan favorite performer Stevie Starr was on stage performing his talent of swallowing random objects whole and bringing them back up in one piece, Howie tried to make a quippy remark by saying:

"You, sir, make bulimia entertaining."

As you can imagine there was an immediate rustling and reaction from the audience after he made the comment.

But Mandel recognized his mistake and made sure to do his best to make up for his boneheaded words by apologizing on air a few acts later. The AGT judge said:
