They forgot to do the baseball cap

This has already been blogged everywhere, but I’ll post it too: The story about the guy who went away for a trip, and came back to find that his friend had coated everything in the entire house in tin foil. All the appliances still worked, the CD covers still opened and closed, but even the individual coins on his dresser were covered in foil. The Olympian wrote a story about it and quoted the guy the day he got back to his apartment:

He hasn’t started unpacking his belongings and isn’t sure when he will.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do,” he said. “As I was trying to sleep last night, I realized that, actually, it’s creepy.”
