Can You Hear Me Now?

Apperently not till the bill is paid, even in an emergency. A 62 year old Caroll County, Ohio man was missing after leaving home upset and with several bottles of pills. During the overnight search involving the State Highway Patrol, Carroll County Sheriff Department, 2 k-9 units, several area fire departments and 100 volunteers Verizon Wireless was asked to turn on his phone to help locate him. The operator refused to do so until the Sheriff agreed to pay $20 of the man's past due bill. The man was found by searchers just before payment arrangements were made. He was nonresponsive and had to be transported to the hospital. Find the full story at- http://www.obscurestore.com/

Monkey-eating Eagle

If I were a monkey and I saw a Phillipine Monkey-eating Eagle dive-bombing me, I'd probably die of a heart attack and save the eagle the trouble of killing me.

Maybe even in my human state!

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 24th

Your Daily Loser(s) - You might think you need to have some brains to get into college, but apparently not always. Three 18 year-old Salem State College students wandered into the local police station to report an accident. They were advised that they needed to wait for an officer on patrol to come by and take their statements. So, they decided to hang out in the parking lot... and have a few drinks to pass the time. The Story.

Jury Duty - Someone needs to explain to these guys that you don't literally have to break into Show Business. The Goffney twins of South Jersey have had a few run-ins with the law, and are now accused of more than 30 rooftop breakins. But their main goal is to make it big in the gay porn industry. The Story.

SNAKE BIT

A man in rual Nantou County Tiawan was bitten by a rat snake last Monday. Not that unusual, except that he was sitting on the toilet at the time. And the snake was in the toilet. They say two heads are better than one, but not this time, as the snake bit him on the penis. At least it wasn't a poisonous snake. Story here- http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090511/od_nm/us_snake_odd

Flexi Discs

image
Vinyl records maintain a certain level of popularity these days. But I don't think anyone plans on reviving the Flexi Disc, which ceased production in the year 2000.

Visit this great site for a history of this odd phenomenon. Be sure to look at the Flexi Disc stamps from Bhutan!
