Balloon Boy Hoax

While I fully believe the Heene's deserve to be punished to the full extent of the law for their "attention getting" hoax, Choose any one of numerous Google results for the hoax story

I do however, give CNN credit for this "awards presentation" video.

Police Accuse Bank Robbery Suspect Of Gobbling Up Note (With Dashcam Video)

http://www.ohio.com/news/70663697.html

Police believe they have their man.

But they fear their suspect in a bank robbery may have eaten some of the evidence — the note handed to a Streetsboro bank teller demanding cash — while he was handcuffed and leaning over the hood of a police cruiser.

Twinsburg police Patrolman Daniel Biada said a dash cam video of Thursday's arrest of John H. Ford, 35, of Cleveland, shows Ford gobbling a piece of paper while officers searched his pockets.


''He grabbed it in his mouth, just like Pacman,'' Biada said. ''He just ate it right there.''


This was on CBS News, and oh, btw, the suspect is from Ohio, go figure.

Man Gets Year In Jail For Urinating On Officer

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091209/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_urination_sentence

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – A Waldo man accused of urinating on a police officer during his fifth drunken-driving arrest has been sentenced to a year in jail. Court records released Wednesday show 36-year-old Daniel L. Shilts Jr. of Waldo was also fined about $3,600 and had his driver's license revoked for three years.

The Sheboygan Press said according to the criminal complaint, Shilts was pulled over in November 2008 in Plymouth after an officer saw his vehicle hit a pole at a gas station.

The complaint said Shilts failed field-sobriety tests. It said as he was taken to the police station he urinated in the back of the squad car, spraying the back of the officer's head.

Defense attorney Chris Eippert said he thinks the sentence was appropriate to help Shilts deal with his acknowledged alcoholism.

That's the whole article, and I had to read it carefully because at first his last name looked like it was Shits, not Shilts.

Noisy Sex Woman Admits ASBO Breach

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/wear/8413974.stm

Caroline and Steve Cartwright's love-making was described as "murder" and "unnatural" at Newcastle Crown Court.
Neighbours, the local postman and a woman taking her child to school complained about the noise. Cartwright, 48, from Washington on Wearside, pleaded guilty to three counts of breaching the Asbo.

She will be sentenced on 18 January.

At an earlier hearing, next door neighbour Rachel O'Connor told the court she was frequently late for work because she overslept having been awake most of the night because of the noise. She said: "The noise sounds like they are both in considerable pain. I cannot describe the noise. I have never ever heard anything like it."

Human "Bed-Warmers" At Holiday Inn

http://www.reuters.com/article/oddlyEno ... 0020100122

International hotel chain Holiday Inn is offering a trial human bed-warming service at three hotels in Britain this month.

If requested, a willing staff-member at two of the chain's London hotels and one in the northern English city of Manchester will dress in an all-in-one fleece sleeper suit before slipping between the sheets.

"The new Holiday Inn bed warmers service is a bit like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed," Holiday Inn spokeswoman Jane Bednall said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

The bed-warmer is equipped with a thermometer to measure the bed's required temperature of 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit).

This is not a funny headline, but rather one of a sad nature that I felt deserved some recognition as news, and decided to just post it here. This may not be a subject of interest to many readers, but it is news.

It is a sad day in the U.S. for anyone who has thoroughly enjoyed watching (on panda cam) or seeing the panda cubs at the zoos in Atlanta and Washington D.C. Today, two panda cubs are on their way back to China per the agreement made with China. While I have not followed Tai Shan (cub at the zoo in Washington D.C.) as closely, I have followed the pandas in Atlanta very closely. My brother who lives in Atlanta, participated in, and designed (with his Company) the panda exhibit at the Atlanta Zoo. I personally have been a contributor for the cause of keeping the pandas at the Atlanta zoo, and have followed them since they (Lun Lun and Yang Yang) first arrived in Atlanta, in November of 1999. The pandas have been on loan to the zoo from China. Lun Lun (female) and Yang Yang (male) tried for seven years before Lun Lun became pregnant with Mei Lan. The zoo has provided live panda cam daily since Mei Lan was born on 9-6-2006, and she now has a younger brother Xi Lan who was born on 8-30-2008. Fortunately for now, Xi Lan gets to stay at the zoo, and the cam is still live online daily.

When visiting Atlanta, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Rebecca Snyder (Curator of Carnivores), and I was there to see the pandas shortly after they arrived in Atlanta, and a few times after that as well.

For anyone interested in reading more, here is the zoo cam, with many other links, photos and information: http://www.zooatlanta.org/1212/panda_cam

This article also provides information and pictures: http://www.pandasliveon.com/giantpandas ... amily.html

To Mei Lan...best wishes as you travel back to China to continue your life there and find your mate.
Image Translated, Mei Lan means "Atlanta's Beauty"


To Tai Shan... best wishes to you also. http://dc.about.com/b/2010/02/01/tai-sh ... -china.htm

On a personal note, I fully understand why the panda agreements are written as they are with China, however it still seems SO unfair that we have to send them back. Perhaps in the upcoming years, other agreements can be reached that will allow the pandas to stay forever. I sure hope so, and so does everyone involved in this.

Edit: Here is a link regarding her departure to China today :(... http://www.wsbtv.com/family/22460980/detail.html

"My family convinced me to go to police," said Jessica Zamora-Anderson, a native of Guatemala. "Half the people in my country have heard about this. It's destroyed my life."


No one deserves to be blackmailed and extorted like this. BUT one suspects that if Jessica, her family and her country weren't so damn socially and culturally backwards, this wouldn't have been a big deal. It's not like you were labeled a pedophile, murderer, or Wall Street banker, lady.

And anyway, why didn't she just ask Facebook to delete the page as soon as she realized it was hijacked? You don't need your password for that, just have to prove your identity.

Oh, Baby! Surprise Guest Joins Wedding Party

http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dl ... 16/3020359

Invitation or not, Tova Phillips wanted to be at his parents' wedding reception.

He didn't quite make it, though.

By the time he arrived on Saturday, the wedding party had moved to Flower Hospital in Sylvania, where his mother gave birth to the precocious party-crasher.

Important note, the video in this article below of the couple (from Toledo, Ohio) is more proof that even people that live in Ohio, don't support their own team (please note the newborn cap the baby is wearing). :wink: "M" Go Blue!

http://video.foxnews.com/v/4064931/mom- ... t_id=87249

Edit: Lol, while I am on the subject of "Go Blue", my niece will be graduating from The University of Michigan with her Master's Degree on May 1st, and President Obama is doing the commencement at the "Big House" in Ann Arbor (he's leaving the White House, heading to the Big House). I will have to allow an additional 2+ hours to get there in time to get through traffic and all the presidential security checks which will be quite a hassle.

I'm guessing he decided that letting people think he was doing it as a suicide attempt was less embarrassing than whatever he was really doing it for!

Dog That Attacked Police Car Must Attend Classes

http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat/20 ... -car_N.htm

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A pit bull mix in Tennessee has been sentenced to obedience training after his dogged attack on a local police car.

Winston didn't bite anybody, but he mauled a Chattanooga police car. The persistent pooch managed to tear off a section of the front bumper and damage the tires.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that a judge ruled that Winston had been a very bad dog. He was sentenced to obedience and canine good citizen classes, and he'll have to wear a tag that says he is "potentially dangerous."

LMAO @ the video of the attack (in the article).
