From a pentagram showing up on the back of a bus, to a Sikh Captain America fighting intolerance, here’s this week’s five crazy headlines.
With all the times Jesus shows up on slices of toast these days, the lord of darkness decided to get in on the action by showing up on the back of a school bus.
A Tennessee woman snapped a picture of a local school bus whose brake lights are apparently shaped like a pentagram, an upside-down five pointed star usually associated with magic rituals and Satanism.
Local news declined to share her name after the woman started receiving death threats on social media, where she first shared the picture.

Cartoonist and New York resident Vishavjit Singh dons a Captain America costume to challenge racial stereotypes as he walks the streets of New York City.
Singh’s costume includes the iconic suit and shield, but also a traditional Sikh turban and full beard. Normally mistaken for a Muslim, Singh uses the costume to show his patriotism and challenge intolerance.
His friends filmed three days worth of his walk around New York, compiling the footage into the film “Red, White and Beard,” now available online.

The Scottish government announced a summit next month in Edinburgh promoting the use of breast milk in feeding infants, including a notice that the venue “is not designed to accommodate breastfeeding.”
Though the promotional material indicated the summit was designed to break down barriers for breastfeeding, delegates who asked if they could bring their nursing infants were told they couldn’t breastfeed them at the event.
After outrage from delegates, event organizers reversed their policy and said they would provide accommodations for nursing mothers.

In a rare win for men’s rights last week, a German court upheld a man’s right to pee standing up without fear of liability.
The court ruled in favor of a tenant who was sued by his landlord for alleged damage to the bathroom marble floor.
While the judge noted the floor was damaged from the defendant missing his target, he said standing up to pee was “still a common practice.”
