Random Stuff

Over lunch today I actually took the time to read the entire USA Today paper. These are just some of the random things that ran through my head.

A new website is out allowing people to know exactly when and where the Northern Lights will be seen.

Why? That takes all the fun out of it!

A man charged with child abuse in the watercraft death of his 2-year-old son was arrested in another boating incident...His 2 year old son was killed when he pulled him behind his jetski at 30mph on an innertube.

Hello? Can you say stupid?

A spike in pedestrian traffic deaths has community leaders calling for a crackdown on speeding...Even though almost all of the accidents were caused by the stu[idity of the pedestrians.

Okay, this makes sense, right? The pedestrians are jumping out into traffic and killing themselves, but we are going to blame the drivers. Hmmm...who put Congress in charge of traffic safety?

A man was accused of cruelty to animals (authorities seized 92 English Springer Spaniels from his home), he was sentenced to jail. He was just released and part of his probation was that he was only allowed one spayed or neutered dog.

ONE spayed or neutered dog...How many non-spayed or non-neutered dogs can he have?

A Methodist church built in 1893 was destroyed by a fire of unknown origin.

Does anyone else find it ironic that the emblem of the Methodist church is a flame?

Jurors will now be paid $61.04 a day compare to the $10 per day they have been earning since 1959.

I have nothing to add.

And finally, this little gem from the great State of it's entirety:

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reminded hunters to keep their dead game animals covered while transporting them from the field. "A deer or elk strapped to a vehicle with a cigar hanging out of its mouth may seem comical to a few, but it is simply crass to most everyone else, said Walt Gasson, special assistant to the department's director.

A cigar??? Okay, I have seen a lot of strange things in my travels, but a dead deer or elk with a cigar hanging out of its mouth? That's a new one.
