Woman awakes from coma to find herself married

A Jersey City woman received the surprise of her life when she awoke from a coma to discover a wedding ring on her finger.

Josephine Yeh says she vaguely recalls being bonked on the head by a children's book last summer while on a first date with a man she met online. 

"He said he was a famous author," she recalls. "The next thing I remember was waking up with a Cocker Spaniel licking my face and a note that said, 'I love you, went for a run, we're out of Coke Zero.'"

When reached for comment, a member of her family sighed and said, "Finally."

Local high school senior seeks clues to missing college fund

An Upper West Side high school student is asking for the public's help in locating his college fund.

Ethan Tarpley, 17, says he has combed through his family's bank accounts and financial records, to no avail.

"It's gotta be here somewhere, right?" he asked rhetorically while finishing a college application during a lunch break at Little Red Elisabeth Irwin High School. "What kind of parent would raise a child without putting money aside for college?"

College student plans to spend remainder of life in Virtual Reality

A Trinity College junior says he has decided to pursue a non-traditional career path consisting of 24/7 VR gaming, with only short breaks for food and rest.

"It's not particularly lucrative, as there's no revenue associated with it," explained Samuel Tarpley, 20, from beneath a VR headset. "But my expenses are limited to a 10x10 room, an Internet connection, and Nesquik."

His father noted that his son had been practicing for this career path for the past five years. "At this point I really can't see him doing anything else."
