Man kicked off robbery for wearing woman’s thong as a mask
A man was removed from a flight in the United States for wearing women’s underwear as a Covid-19 face mask. In a video widely shared online, Adam Jenne can be seen wearing a pink thong to his face as he sits in his seat before the flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington.

They spotted the remains of the largest known invertebrate animal of all time – a 2.7m centipede called arthropleura that lived 326 million years ago. “It is certainly the largest arthropod fossil – period – in the world,” said one.
