Natty Lite is expensive in Alabama!
...or "Where's my change, Azzhole?"

Alabama man stabbed in fuss over cheap beer

Aug 1, 4:17 PM (ET)


MOULTON, Ala. (AP) - A dispute over cheap beer left one man in the hospital with stab wounds and another man charged with assault, authorities said Friday.

Grady "Skip" Wilburn Dollar, 64, was accused of stabbing Mickey Joe Hill, 37, during a dispute early Thursday, said Sgt. Mark Richard of the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department.

Richard said the two men had been drinking together when Dollar gave Hill $10 and told him to go to the store for more. Richard said Hill brought back only four cans of Natural Light, a low-cost brand, and Dollar got mad that he didn't get more for his money.

"He said, 'For $10 you could have gotten a half case,'" said Richard. "Four cans of Natural Light only cost $3 or $4."

The victim then asked for one of the four beers and pushed the older man when he refused to hand one over, the investigator said.

"Then the suspect went to the kitchen, got a big butcher knife and came back and stabbed him," Richard said.

Hill remained hospitalized with a wound to the lower abdomen but was expected to recover fully since the blade missed all major organs.

Dollar was free on $5,000 bond. Richard said records did not reflect that he had hired an attorney, and there was no telephone listing in Dollar's name.

Cleveland has got it going on...
This is my kind of men's clothing store!

Clothing store opens bar in middle of sales floor

Aug 1, 2:48 PM (ET)


CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland clothing store wants to make sure its customers are comfortable, so it has opened a bar in the middle of its sales floor. M. Lang Executive Attire owner Mike Lang said he hopes the cash bar will not only help put shoppers in a relaxed mood to buy clothing but also will encourage people to hang out at the shop with their friends.

Lang said when he approached the Ohio Department of Liquor Control, he was told they'd never had anyone request a liquor license for a clothing store. For now, he and his only sales person do double duty, as the bartenders.

After 20 years of catering to men, the store also added women's apparel recently, along with the bar.***

Jack, you need to start an new NPR thread titled, "Only in the South". There is no doubt that we are blessed with comedy and dumb crap that the rest of the country has to pay to see in the movies.

I've often looked to see if any hidden cameras are aimed at us in the south. Comedic events on a daily basis; no planning, it just happens. I've traveled all around the USA and we have more than our fair share of loons and weird events.

Keep it up, it's a fun read.

Boy, 10, turns mom in for making phony money

Jul 31, 8:43 PM (ET)


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A Bakersfield woman faces charges that she counterfeited money and identification cards after her 10-year-old son turned her in to authorities.

According to Kern County Superior Court records, the boy gave sheriff's deputies phony money last month that his mother created. The child told investigators she also had a computer that makes fake ID cards.

Deputies executing a search warrant seized computer disks, scanners and printers.

The thirty-year-old woman is due in court Friday. She faces several charges, including possessing equipment to commit forgery.

Deputies said she was arrested July 4 and posted $50,000 bail the same day.

Naked Man Prompts Bomb Scare At Gas Station
Man Claimed Explosives In Car, Police Say

POSTED: 9:20 am CDT August 4, 2008
UPDATED: 9:43 am CDT August 4, 2008


TWINSBURG, Ohio -- A scuffle between police and a man at a Twinsburg gas station Thursday prompted the bomb squad to be called to check out suspicious packages.

Cleveland television station WEWS reported that police said officers went to the BP gas station at state Route 82 and Interstate 480 Thursday afternoon after receiving a call about a strangely behaving man.

Police said the man picked up some items and went into the bathroom, emerging a few minutes later naked and mumbling.

A scuffle between the man and officers broke out, and police used a Taser gun. The scuffle went out into the parking lot, and the suspect was restrained, police said.

Police said the man indicated there were explosives in a vehicle. The bomb squad came and removed two suspicious packages, but no explosives were found.

The suspect was taken to Bedford Hospital for evaluation. A Twinsburg officer injured his hand.

Charges against the suspect are pending.

Hey ! You got chocolate on my bacon...
...YOU got bacon in my chocolate !...mmmmm !

Bacon makes everything better _ even chocolate?

Aug 8, 7:02 PM (ET)

By MICHELLE LOCKE

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) - Here are three little words that might give the staunchest snacker pause: Chocolate-covered bacon.

It sounds so wrong. But it tastes just right, says Joseph Marini III, a fourth-generation candy maker who is selling the bacon bonbons at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk seaside amusement park.

"It's not just for breakfast any more," he says with a grin.

And this isn't just a wacky West Coast thing.


This year, Famous Dave's at the Minnesota State Fair is rolling out Pig Lickers - dark chocolate-covered bacon pieces sprinkled with sea salt.

"It's just like the most bizarre combination," says fair spokeswoman Brienna Schuette. "I actually really liked it. It was a good combination of sweet and salty."

The urge to create new flavor profiles is a natural for a field driven by creativity, says Karen Page, co-author with Andrew Dornenburg of the forthcoming "The Flavor Bible," a sort of field guide to flavor pairings.

Chefs have two basic agents of change: using a different cooking method or mixing up flavors. So a classic such as tomatoes and basil might get turned into tomato sorbet with a basil sauce. Or you might find unorthodox couplings, such as salads of watermelon and feta or cotton candy with foie gras.

"There's a whole trend toward chefs pushing the boundaries," says Page. "Chefs are trying to be more playful and incorporate new kinds of whimsy."

It's hard to tell exactly where the dream of candy-coated breakfast meats started, but for Marini, the inspiration was a trip with some ski buddies a while back.

"One guy came up with, 'Who doesn't love bacon? Who doesn't love chocolate? Let's marry them together.'"

So Marini gave it a shot and after some trial and error - crispness is key, he says, noting that chewy bacon plus chocolate is undelicious - he came up with a product.

"It was kind of a joke to begin with," he says. "We brought it down to the boardwalk and put it in a case just to see if people would react, and they reacted."

Take boardwalk visitor Nathan Lopez, who on a recent foggy morning had a quizzical look on his face as he began eating a sample at Marini's at the Beach. But he finished with a smile.

"Interesting combination," was the verdict. "I didn't think it would be very good but once I tried it; it was good."

Of course, chocolate-coated bacon is just the latest incarnation of the wackier-the-better fair food philosophy.

Fair food has been shaking up the snack scene for some time, says Ron Whiting, of Whiting's Foods, whose family has been selling food at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk for decades.

"Years ago, I think food tended to be more traditional and less fun," he says. Then came the corn dog and the era of quick and on-a-stick. "We all talk about the next corn dog," he says.

Fry, fry again is a persistent theme. Current popular snacks include deep-fried Twinkies and Oreos.

Page, who admits to eating "more than my fair share of fried dough," notes that gourmet chefs have taken to putting food - just about any food - on a stick, coming up with some posh Popsicles. Meanwhile, there's the foie gras-cotton candy matchup, not a stretch flavor-wise since foie gras usually is paired with something sweet, but certainly visually arresting.

"It's the melding of both these worlds, the high end and the low end," said Page.

Never underestimate the appeal of battered-is-better.

On a recent Dinner Impossible show, on the Food Network, the challenge was to make a dinner using items only found on the Wildwood, NJ, boardwalk. They did chocolate covered bacon for a desert item. Although it sounded terrible to everyone, all of those who tried it said it was terrific.

I asked my cardiologist if I should eat chocolate covered bacon.
When he stops laughing, I let you know what he says. :roll:

I've been practicing this for years...
..now science has caught up with me !

Scientists closer to invisibility cloak

Aug 10, 5:26 PM (ET)


WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people and objects invisible.

Researchers have demonstrated for the first time they were able to cloak three-dimensional objects using artificially engineered materials that redirect light around the objects. Previously, they only have been able to cloak very thin two-dimensional objects.

The findings, by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, led by Xiang Zhang, are to be released later this week in the journals Nature and Science.

The new work moves scientists a step closer to hiding people and objects from visible light, which could have broad applications, including military ones.

People can see objects because they scatter the light that strikes them, reflecting some of it back to the eye. Cloaking uses materials, known as metamaterials, to deflect radar, light or other waves around an object, like water flowing around a smooth rock in a stream.

Metamaterials are mixtures of metal and circuit board materials such as ceramic, Teflon or fiber composite. They are designed to bend visible light in a way that ordinary materials don't. Scientists are trying to use them to bend light around objects so they don't create reflections or shadows.

It differs from stealth technology, which does not make an aircraft invisible but reduces the cross-section available to radar, making it hard to track.

The research was funded in part by the U.S. Army Research Office and the National Science Foundation's Nano-Scale Science and Engineering Center.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The planet that I'm from sells this type of invisibility in the check out lines at the supermarket. I'm glad you earthlings are finally catching up...lol !

Budweiser, Budweiser, Miller Lite.....
...wait, we're naming kids ???

Sweden relaxes rules on givings kids unusual names

Aug 12, 10:56 AM (ET)


STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Swedish authorities say parents can now name their newborns "Budweiser" or "Metallica" if they so wish.

For decades, Swedish tax authorities had banned parents from naming their children after fast food chains, rock bands or their favorite brand of beer.

But tax authority spokesman Lars Tegenfeldt says the guidelines have been relaxed. He says "there is nothing negative about a name like Coca-Cola or McDonald's today. In the 1970s, maybe it was."

Still, authorities are drawing the line at giving children swear words for names. And forget about naming your child God, Allah or Devil.

Iowa man cited after botched attempt to neuter dog

Aug 11, 7:30 PM (ET)


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines man accused of using a razor blade in a botched attempt to neuter a friend's dog has been charged with improper care and treatment of animals.

Police say Hung Doc Vu was issued a misdemeanor citation on Monday and faces a fine of up to $500.

Officials say 49-year-old told them he had been taught the procedure by his father and grandfather, but he has no veterinary license or training.

Police say they have no indication that Vu was trying to be malicious when he attempted to remove the schnauzer's testicles on Aug. 2 with a razor blade and no pain medication.

The dog's owner took the animal in for emergency treatment. Police say the dog, named Pooper, was treated and released.

Ohio Burger King worker takes bath in utility sink

Aug 12, 8:08 PM (ET)


XENIA, Ohio (AP) - Burger King Corp. said Tuesday it has parted ways with an employee who was recorded taking a soapy bath in the restaurant's utility sink. The nearly four-minute video, which was posted Thursday on MySpace.com, shows the unidentified employee taking the bath to celebrate his birthday.

The worker, who refers to himself as "Mr. Unstable," appears to be naked.

Burger King spokeswoman Denise Wilson said two employees involved in the incident were fired and another quit. She declined to identify the employees or say whether the man who took the bath quit or was fired.

The sink is used to clean large pieces of equipment, said Greene Health Commissioner Mark McDonnell. Bacteria or viruses on the skin could have potentially contaminated equipment, but there have been no reports of any customers becoming ill.

McDonnell said he dispatched an inspector to the restaurant, but at that point the restaurant had sterilized the sink.

Miami-based Burger King, the nation's No. 2 hamburger chain, said in a statement that it also disposed of all kitchen tools and utensils used in the incident and is retraining the staff in health and sanitation procedures.

Xenia is about 15 miles east of Dayton.

Porn inspector suspect arrested in Colorado

Aug 12, 8:07 PM (ET)


LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - A man suspected of posing as a police detective and telling an adult novelty shop to give him free X-rated videos so he could check for underage performers was arrested Tuesday, authorities said.

Drew Libby, 33, was arrested on suspicion of impersonating an officer, possession of an illegal weapon and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Investigators said they believe Libby made three unsuccessful attempts to get free videos from the store, showing a badge and leaving a business card from the Longmont police "age verification unit." There is no such unit, police said.

Libby was identified by a police officer and tipsters after photos were distributed from a surveillance camera in the store.

No phone listing could be found for Libby. Boulder County Jail does not know if he has an attorney.

Minister gets jail for stealing flock's identities


Aug 14, 5:02 PM (ET)


WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - A Baptist minister in central Pennsylvania has been sentenced to one year in jail for stealing the identities of his church members.

Raymond Clayton Sr., 44, was also ordered to pay more than $28,000 in restitution at his sentencing Wednesday. Clayton is the former pastor of Grace Fellowship Church near Mount Carmel.

Federal prosecutors said Clayton used parishioners' personal information to obtain credit cards between November 2006 and April 2007. He pleaded guilty in March to access device fraud.

The church has since disbanded.

British recycling leaflets show wrong Birmingham

Aug 14, 11:19 AM (ET)

By DAVID STRINGER

LONDON (AP) - Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham, has a new skyline - only it belongs to its Alabama namesake. Birmingham City Council distributed 720,000 leaflets that praised residents for exceeding recycling targets, carrying a message that read: "Thank You Birmingham." The message appeared stamped across a photograph of the city's skyline. But the photo was not of Birmingham, England, but of Birmingham, Alabama.

It's the second time British officials have mistakenly used images of Birmingham, Alabama. Three lawmakers who represent Birmingham at the European Parliament accidentally used a picture of the U.S. city on their Internet site in January.

"I would have thought the council would take more care," said Birmingham resident Jon Cooper. "I can't believe no one at the town hall noticed."

Britain's Birmingham is famed for its modernist Bullring shopping mall, with its distinctive metallic curved exterior and an extensive network of canals, churches and historical buildings.


The Alabama city's skyline includes the Wachovia Tower, University of Alabama buildings and skyscrapers.

Officials said the wrong image was selected from an Internet photo archive.

Man's ear chewed off after dispute with neighbor

Aug 15, 3:33 PM (ET)


OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Two Ogden neighbors got into a fight after a minor league baseball game that ended with one them biting off a part of the other's ear. The two men had returned home from the Ogden Raptors baseball game late Wednesday when police said one man apparently offended the other with a comment.

Ogden Police Lt. Scott Sangberg said the offended man responded by striking the other in the face several times and then clamping down on his ear with his teeth and pulling back with enough force to rip off a part of the ear.

The man was booked into the Weber County Jail and is facing charges of assault causing mayhem, assault of an officer, possession of marijuana, intoxication and resisting arrest, Sangberg said.
