Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Some of us got it and some of us don't. Apparently, there's a couple has more than enough to go around.

A Colorado couple who won $500,000 on a scratch-off ticket revealed they previously won lottery jackpots for $5 million and $4,000.

The Colorado Lottery said the couple, whose names were not released, purchased 4 Brilliant Bucks Scratch tickets recently and discovered one of them was a $500,000 winner.

The couple told officials the ticket was not their first lottery windfall -- they won a $5 million Colorado Lottery jackpot several years ago.

The couple said they also once won $4,000 from the California lottery.

The pair dubbed their latest winnings a "retirement fund."

I'm gonna contact them and see if maybe their next big win can become the "Send Lewis to Amsterdam for 3 Months Fund."

*-- Beaver cuts lights on Canada wedding by chomping on power pole --*

A beaver disrupted a wedding in Canada after cutting off the power by knocking down a nearby electrical pole.

Saskatoon Power shared photos of the toppled electrical pole complete with beaver bite marks as it rested in a muddy field.

"Crews were busy safely restoring power in the Maple Creek area on [Saturday] -- the culprit -- a beaver!" the power company said.

Kim Martin of Regina told the CBC the beaver caused a power outage that nearly derailed her wedding by leaving the venue in the dark.

"It really took a while to believe that it was a beaver because that just seems like a really ridiculous thing to have happen," she said.

The manager of the venue for Martin's wedding reception said the building lost power because of the beaver, but would be able to receive power from its backup power generator.

"We were definitely worried but once they assured us that there would be food and music...we didn't really have time to worry," Martin said. "It was such of a blur of a day that we just kept on going. It was more of an adventure that way, with no power."

Martin initially struggled to believe a beaver was able to nearly sidetrack her big day, but eventually found the humor in the situation.

"Once we realized that was a true story -- that it was a beaver -- it was just funny," she said.

*-- Doctors find live spider in woman's ear after outside nap --*

A woman who suffered a headache after an outside nap in India went to a hospital where doctors filmed a live spider crawling out of her ear.

The woman, identified as Lekshmi L, 49, was brought by her husband to Columbia Asia Hospital in Hebbal, India, when she suffered a severe headache after napping on the veranda outside her home.

The woman told doctors the sensation started as a slight discomfort and a tingling sensation, but the pain became excruciating after her daughter used a flashlight to look into her ear.

Doctors examined the woman and were filming video when a large and very much alive spider walked out of her ear.

This isn't the first time this has happened. That's why there's a screen over the suction pipe. Maybe if they bolted it on? The dumbass sat on the pipe and the rest is history. He's lucky he's not history.

[Is that where the term "Hitting the pipe" comes from?]

Are filters in pools in Spain like super strong filters or are they all like that? I'm curious for safety reasons.
