Asteroid missed Earth

Posted: October 19, 2013 in General

Newly discovered asteroid made a "close" approach to Earth this week, at least in astronomical terms, the asteroid known as 2013TV135 came within 4.2 million miles (6.7 million km) of Earth on Wednesday, and it is likely to come back around in 2032, but there is only a miniscule risk of it smashing into the planet.

Odd news snippets

Posted: October 13, 2013 in General

Most of the time we really never venture pasted the late breaking news and your local news but, I bet if you just went snooping around you would find some really crazy news stories here are some snippets of a few I found.

A woman is charged with felony drunken driving after police in Billings, Mont., say she called 911 and said she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle.

What’s worse than an airline losing a customer’s dog? Sending an accidental email dismissing the mishap as being no big deal.

A German couple’s marriage got off to a rocky start when the groom forgot his bride at a highway gas station on the way home from their honeymoon, only noticing she was missing after hours had passed.

Authorities say a Kansas man who was walking along railroad tracks wearing headphones was hit by a train that he didn’t hear approaching behind him, but that he got back up and kept walking.

An Ohio man is finding out there’s no easy way to come back from the dead. Donald Miller Jr. went to court this week to ask a county judge to reverse a 1994 ruling that declared him legally dead after he had disappeared from his home eight years earlier. But the judge turned down his request, citing a three-year time limit for changing a death ruling.

London firefighters have launched a public shaming campaign to stem the rise of locals summoning urgent help to remove foreign objects stuck on or inside  their bodies, but the kinky topic is so taboo in America some top U.S. emergency workers won’t discuss the behavior.

Except in Los Angeles: 911 operators do receive a small number of sexually bizarre rescue pleas and do dispatch ambulances, including instances in which they must assist men with heavy steel rings lodged around their private parts. Officials at other emergency agencies struggled to answer if  as in London they have marked an uptick in the rate of 911 calls or ER visits from Americans with foreign objects wedged into their rectums or folks with sensitive body parts jammed into kitchen appliances or other embarrassing orifices.

“I’m just not sure where to go with this.”

But in London, fire officials aren’t holding their tongues about how they must perform tasks like freeing a man’s penis from a vacuum cleaner, theorizing that an increase in such randy rescue calls in that city is perhaps propelled by the popularity of the erotic romance novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." 

CBS late night talk show host David Letterman heard about the issue and decided Wednesday to "Thoughts Going Through The Mind Of The Guy Who Had Sex With A Toaster." "Boy, I mean I can think of maybe a dozen things around the house I’d pick before the toaster, just off the top of my head," Letterman said. "But that’s just me. I mean, everybody has different tastes." Personal note: Ok so this morning I was inspired by similar news articles and Tweets by the London fire brigade and Bill Briggs

What’s not funny

Posted: October 11, 2013 in General, Opinions, Sarcasm

Starting a paragraph off with a question is just bad form and not proper at all right? if I do not ask I can’t get to my topic so here is my question. Is it just me or is the daily comics strips not funny any more? example is today’s Garfield

 garfield     View more comics

Not funny to me so is it just me? it looks more like the creator had a guilty conscience to me or is just simply out of fresh ideas for being cute or funny.
