Greetings fellow Bizarros:
In what I am sure will be an amicable settlement, a Michigan man who won a $30 million lottery jackpot while in the midst of divorce proceedings must split the money with his ex, an appeals court ruled.
The Michigan appeals court said suburban Detroit man Rich Zelasko has to share the $30 million he won from a Mega Millions drawing in 2013 with his ex-wife.
The couple were in divorce proceedings at the time of the lottery win, but the divorce wasn't finalized until 2018. "Rich was lucky, but it was his luck, not Mary's, that produced the lottery proceeds," Rich Zelasko's lawyer wrote in a court filing.
Arbitrator John Mills earlier ruled the ticket was marital property, because the divorce had not been finalized. The appeals court upheld Mills' decision.

Wallendas Walk the wire 25 Stories Over Times Square
Nik and Lijana Wallenda, part of the multi-generation Flying Wallendas family of tight rope walkers, became the first performers to walk a high wire suspended over Times Square. The siblings started on opposite sides of the wire and met in the middle, where they executed a delicate procedure where Nik stepped over Lijana so they could continue in their respective directions. Lijana Wallenda said the wire walk was about overcoming her fears after an injury during a rehearsal two years ago left her with severe injuries requiring reconstructive surgery on her face. "Of course you get butterflies and a little bit sick to your stomach, like 'What am I about to do?'" she told ABC's Good Morning America. "But then I remembered all the training and how hard I worked, and you have to fall back on that. I knew my ability. I knew I could do it." Nik Wallenda said he saw the stunt as an homage to one of his family's most famous performances, a tight rope walk at Madison Square Garden in 1928. He said he is already planning his next stunt -- a wire walk over a volcano.
