Miss Universe officials have a message for Catalina Robayo, Colombia's entry into Monday's contest: Don't forget to wear underwear. Robayo, one of 89 beauties from around the world competing to win the Donald Trump-owned contest, has been reprimanded for making appearance in tiny skirts - with no panties. "Colombia had to be spoken to and told she needed to wear underpants as what she was doing was totally inappropriate. People have been pretty upset by it; there have been photos and media appearances where she has completely had her crotch out."

It's sad, but I am surprised it hadn't happened already: Woman dies after exposure to odor at McDonald's

Just so you know, they later found that the "odor" was carbon dioxide from the soda machine.

Of all things.

Carbon dioxide?? That thing must have been really pouring it out if it displaced all the oxygen in the room.

Well, it was just really bad luck that the leak happened next to the restroom, which is obviously a much smaller area.

Carbon dioxide Kills one at Mcdonalds

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Carbon dioxide from a soda fountain leaked in a McDonald's in Georgia and sickened 10 people, including an woman who later died after being found unconscious in a restroom, police said Wednesday.

Investigators determined a leaky gas line between the walls caused the gas to build up about a week ago to the point where people inside were unable to breathe.

"It caused what is normally a harmless gas to be pumped into the wall cavity and leak into the women's restroom," said Pooler Police Chief Mark Revenew. "At a high level of concentration, it displaces oxygen."

Firefighters were called Sept. 7 to the restaurant in Pooler, about 10 miles west of Savannah, and two women were found unconscious in a restroom. They were later admitted to a Savannah hospital, where eight others from the restaurant were treated and released. Eighty-year-old Anne Felton of Ponte Vedra, Fla., died the next day.

Investigators initially suspected customers fell ill to noxious fumes from cleaning chemicals. An autopsy found no trace of chemicals in Felton, Revenew said, but it indicated she succumbed to asphyxiation.

McDonald's corporate headquarters and the restaurant's franchisees, John and Monique Palmaccio, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The police chief said the owners had replaced the soda fountain's gas lines and valves and were allowed to reopen the restaurant.
