Some Colorado girls have been fined $900 for leaving cookies on a mean old lady's doorstep. Imagine how much it would have cost them to help her cross the street!
I really, really hate the the courts.
Well, here's one case, at least, that's win-win: Osama bin Laden's filmmaker is suing Michael Moore for stealing his footage. Yikes, wouldn't it be awful if you owed Osama bin Laden, of all people, money?
I sure hope Osama's biographer doesn't sue me over Osama bin Pappy. :-/
Turns out that one of the 911 hijackers used a California bypass code to obtain a Californian drivers' license. And here the Hollywood freaks want to make it so California's drivers' licenses are readily available to illegal immigrants? I mean, blimey, they have to be either 1.) nuts 2.) enemy saboteurs. Probably a combination of both.
A police chief at--and I am not making this up--the Chikugo police station in Fukuoka, apparently decided to collect his own fingerprints when there was no other evidence available. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around why in the world he would do this.
This is a really fun story: if you've heard about the problematic increase in suicides at the Golden Gate bridge, and San Franscisco's insane gun ban, well, a pro-second ammendment group is lobbying to have the Golden Gate Bridge closed. "[I]t is an absolute certainty that closing the bridge would prevent suicides, and perhaps many accidents, as well. And just for the sake of argument, one seriously might question whether any of the more than 1,300 fatal falls from the bridge since 1937 were cleverly-concealed homicides. . . . [i]f it saves just one life, closing the Golden Gate Bridge is the right thing to do."
Coincidentally, San Francisco county has the lowest mental health rating in all of California. Even more coincidentally, SF is where Kerry did best in '04, nabbing 83% of the vote.
Well, I just hope we can stop the proliferation of bridges before its too late. . . .
The lazy-butt French are actually protesting to keep their 35-hour work week. Look at this picture:
It's not even a bloody requirement, these bozos are upset because this bill will allow private sector employees to opt for longer hours.
Most of socialist Europe has this same problem, especially with regard to vacation time. These people don't want to work and don't want anybody else to be able to work either. I suppose it would be "unfair" if hard-working folk were able to earn more money for themselves, wouldn't it?
There is some good news out and about. A couple in Chicago may sue over the wrongful discarding of their frozen embryos. Don't hold your breath, but maybe someday human life will be protected regardless of it's size and age.
Now, this is definitely not a subject I bring up often, but The Christian Post is featuring an article about J.R.R. Tolkien's letter to his son about sex. "The devil is endlessly ingenious, and sex is his favorite subject," says Tolkien.
A British scientist has found a way to clean clothes using degassed water. It reportedly can remove just about anything, including vaseline, and no soap is needed. Well, if that's anything like deionized water, I can certainly believe it. They actually use deionized water to cut through metal (it strips the metal ions).
Murderer Darryl McCoy is going to be set free after serving only three years of his life sentence, because the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that his videotaped confession should not have been used. What is with these psychotic judges?
A Zeeland man has been charged with assault with an Egg McMuffin and ordered to pay a $600 fine. It's a good thing he wasn't a carrying a Big Mac--he would be spending the rest of his days in Levinworth.
French fighters have been captured in cahoots with Iraqi terrorists. I'm not surprised, really. Are you?
In an unsurprising turn, we discover that the lottery disproportionately usurps the money of the poor.
I cannot for the life of me fathom why anyone would squander their money on such a silly enterprise. Mathematically, it does not make sense (unless the total payout is greater than price of ticket / probability of winning, which obviously never happens) and morally, you're paying a tithe on your own greed.
Democrats have unearthed the "most disgusting ad in superbowl history": "See that ad where people in the airport are cheering and clapping to the troops departing to Iraq and the words "Thank you" appears? WTF?!?"
Wow. Good thing I didn't watch the game.
Finally, the French goverment has been fined $5 million dollars over a dead hedgehog. Heh. :)
