A man who went back to a shop after he forgot to buy ice won $1 million on the lottery.

Neil Briggs from New York thought he'd try his luck and pick up a ticket for $5 when he returned to his local store, and was left gobsmacked when he won the jackpot.

He told UPI: "I ran my errands earlier that day, but I forgot to buy two bags of ice.

"I ran down to the store to grab the ice and decided to buy a lottery ticket while I was there.

"I had two 20s, a five and three singles on me.

"I can't justify paying $20 for a lottery ticket and the dollar tickets really don't pay a lot so I went in with the five-dollar ticket."

A toilet-themed restaurant chain in Taiwan is serving up meals in mini bogs.

Local people are rushing to book a table at one of the many Modern Toilet eateries, which serve up Chinese food and other popular dishes, including spaghetti bolognese and even pork chop.

Each customer gets a complimentary toilet with chocolate ice cream in the shape of poop and a green tea.

The first restaurant opened in 2004 and just served ice cream, but has gone on to expands its menu.

A history nerd who stole a stone from a historic abbey in South Wales returned it after claiming it was giving him "bad luck".

The Abbeycwmhir Heritage Trust received the small rock in the post with a letter from the unnamed thief, who said he was giving it back because he was haunted by a headless ghost, who he believed to be that of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native Prince of Wales, who was buried there after his death in 1282.

According to, his message read: "I am so sorry for taking, borrowing, stealing this piece of the old Abbeycwmhir.

"I have been an avid follower of the Welsh kings and their history and so I took this rock.

"Ever since, I have had the most awful luck, as if Llewellyn himself was angry with me.

"So I am sending it back. I will not leave my name or address, just a heartfelt sorry from an Australian fan."
