    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- From a little girl getting stuck in a washing machine to a man stealing brains and selling them on eBay, 'THV 11 This Morning' catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.

    A North Carolina town councilman decided to boldly go where no politician has gone before and tendered his resignation in Klingon.

    In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, David Waddell said his resignation letter to the mayor was "an inside joke."
    And in case the mayor wasn't up to speed with the fictional language from the 'Star Trek' series, Waddell included a translation using Bing.com.

    The mayor was not amused and called the letter childish and unprofessional.

    A young girl thought she found the ultimate hide-and-seek location, but it ended up requiring a call to 911.

    The competitive 11-year-old thought no one would ever find her in the washing machine but she quickly realized winning the game wasn't as fun as she thought.

    Emergency crews arrived and only had to remove the dryer above to get the girl out.

    She suffered some minor bruising but learned an important lesson.

    Time travelers, if they really exist, seem to be keeping their adventures to themselves.

    Researchers conducted an Internet and social media search for evidence of time travelers going back in history and then bragging about it online.

    For example, they searched for mentions of Pope Francis before he was was elected pope in March of 2012.

    But after extensive searching, they came up empty.

    A twenty-one-year-old Indianapolis resident is accused of stealing jars of brain tissue and putting them up for auction on ebay.

    Authorities say David Charles is accused of breaking into the Indiana Medical History Museum multiple times last year and stealing jars of human brain tissue and other preserved material.

    The buyer of the tissue samples sent a tip to police after becoming concerned the items were stolen.

    Charles was arrested after police set up a sting to capture him.
