🐛 Why you shouldn't kill house centipedes

Maybe you just want to kill them and no one is going to convince you otherwise, and, well OK then. But there is a "good" reason not to kill these bugs the next time you see one of them scurry across your bedroom floor ... right into your bed. OK, enough.

Anyway, here's what you should know about the house centipede (Scutigera coleoptrata).

🚗💥 Dangerous intersections

A list of the most dangerous intersections in Michigan has been released, and the most dangerous last year was in Oakland County ... and no one is surprised in the least.

The intersection of Telegraph and 12 Mile roads in Southfield moved from the third spot in 2017 to the most dangerous intersection in 2018. There were 145 reported crashes and 24 injuries last year.

🏊 Nasty pool survey

And it gets worse -- seriously, it does.

Read at your own risk here, it may ruin your summer.
