Man Eats Almost Nothing but Mac & Cheese for 17 Years

Sometimes it’s Kraft Deluxe, maybe a four cheese on occasion or Annie’s. Bob Evans is pretty good too,” said 20-year-old Austin Davis. For 17 years, Davis has eaten almost nothing except macaroni and cheese. “I don’t want to say I’m addicted to mac and cheese, because it sounds so weird,” he said. “But my body won’t let me eat anything else. I didn’t choose to be like this.” Davis suffers from selective eating disorder known as avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, which is a mental condition that makes a person not be able to eat new and/or different types of food and is often related to abuse and traumatic events in one’s life. Austin says that he’s been trying to work on eating new types of food with his therapist, and hopes to be able to overcome his condition and move on from it.

Woman Hits Man with Hammer After a Fight About Pork Chops

A woman in Pensacola has been arrested by police on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after she repeatedly attacked a man during an argument. Jesseca Danielle Hardy is the 32-year-old alleged perpetrator and is currently being held on a $5,000 bond. She got into a heated debate about pork chops with a man about pork chops, and soon after the conversation started, she pulled out a hammer and began to hit him with it. According to police, there was no motive for the attack except for the pork chop conversation. Police have also stated that the victim will be alright.

Man Runs Someone Over in a Tractor…On Purpose

Charles Jerkins, a 46-year-old man from Dade City, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. Jerkins was arguing with his neighbor over a concern about the property lines, and saw his chance to strike when his neighbor was out moving logs in his own tractor. Jerkins rode over in his tractor, crashed into his neighbor’s tractor, and then proceeded to drop a 10-foot log on top of him. The man fell out of his tractor, and Jerkins then repeatedly hit him in the face until witnesses pulled Jerkins off the man. Jerkins is currently being held in jail on a $10,000 bond for his crime.
