“I’m always asking myself why I can’t remain sitting in my chair,” he said, changing into some webbed long underwear at midnight on a freezing Bronx street corner. “I’m not always waiting for the answer. I think most people underrate the possibilities to fulfill their own dreams. So I think much more is possible in life than people seem to believe. We’re all born explorers.”
He called the underground hike a trip “through New York’s subconscious.”
In 1972, Colombian psychiatrist Miguel Echeverry published a book arguing that hippies were not a youth subculture but the expression of a distinct mental illness that should be treated aggressively lest it spread through the population like a contagion.
I found the book, called Psicopatologia y Existencia del Hippie (Psychopathology and Existence of the Hippy), in my local library and it turns out to be one of the most surprising psychiatry books I have ever read.
“It was for a whole pack of cigarettes,” says Brizendine, now 47.
No, it was for a single smoke, corrects Annie Brizendine, the woman who made the trade, took the infant in and later adopted and raised him.
It was Oct. 17, 1963, when Nancy Keller walked into a mobile home park near Lockheed Air Terminal, now known as Bob Hope Airport, and knocked on the door of the trailer in Space 1.

“She was carrying Danny in a little seat. She said, ‘I’m going to trade you a kid for a weed.’ That’s what they called cigarettes back then,” remembers Annie Brizendine.
Brizendine didn’t smoke, but her sister, who was visiting that day, did. Her sister pulled out a pack of Pall Mall filters and Keller took one and handed over the baby she was carrying.
Convicts in federal jails could get free heroin or needles if a report from a group of MPs is implemented.
A report from the Commons public safety committee calls for “harm reduction” which could include an expansion of free drugs for inmates in federal prisons.
“We didn’t get into specifics,” said Liberal public safety critic Mark Holland when asked if his party would support needle exchanges or safe injection sites in prisons. “We’re simply saying to the government they have to do more.”
“We have a huge problem with infectious disease in our prisons,” Holland said.
Two San Francisco residents who caught graffiti vandals red-handed will receive $250 rewards from the Department of Public Works.
In the first case, on March 11, the resident spotted vandals tagging a wall near Mission and 18th streets and called 911. He trailed the vandals along Mission Street and identified a suspect to police officers, who made the arrest and gathered photo evidence.
Good Samaritans can get hundreds of dollars for helping to catch graffiti vandals.

Good Samaritans can get hundreds of dollars for helping to catch graffiti vandals.
A second check went to a resident who reported a vandal spray-painting the trailer of a truck on March 21 near Fulton Street and 44th Avenue. The vandal dropped the can and ran but police took him into custody.
George Dusenbury, commissioner of parks and recreation, which is leading the effort says, “It’s not a graffiti czar. As a city, we’re working toward goals of eliminating graffiti.”
So wait, how does Dusenbury define “graffiti”? “If you don’t have permission to do it, it’s graffiti. We know there are a lot of people who want to express themselves, while also recognizing there are people who don’t want paint on their buildings. We’re not trying to go after art. Our Office of Cultural Affairs has done a good job of recognizing the artistic component of what others consider graffiti.”
One other thing: The city is giving the OCA until Jan. 17 to come up with a comprehensive (though not guaranteed) list of “legitimate” art that should be spared. That’s about three weeks — over the holidays — to carry out an inventory of thousands of works across the city. By our estimation, it could take more like three months to do the process justice.
A group of New York City Sanitation supervisors is under investigation for allegedly buying booze and chilling in their cozy department car for hours Monday night after the blizzard stranded a bus and three snowplows blocks away.
The city’s Department of Investigation is probing the incident after witnesses said four snow blowers blew off their duties to get blitzed, buying two six-packs of beer from a Brooklyn bodega. The workers then walked five blocks to their car, which was in 20 inches of snow in the middle of 18th at McDonald avenues near the F train entrance, passing the stuck bus and idle plows on 18th Avenue between Third and Fourth streets.
The four remained in the idling sedan until morning — then told their bosses they could do nothing about the blizzard because they had run out of gas, one witness said.
“For me it’s something really special. I was eating at the Halal Subway sandwich shop on Normanton Road and this tomato slice fell out from my sandwich.
“I noticed Arabic writing that appeared to be from within the tomato, constructed from its veins or venation – the botanical term for plant veins.

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared for President Medvedev by Russian Space Forces (VKS) 45th Division of Space Control says that an upcoming WikiLeaks release of secret US cables details that the Americans have been “engaged” since 2004 in a “war” against UFO’s based on or near the Continent of Antarctica, particularly the Southern Ocean.
According to this report, the United States went to its highest alert level on June 10, 2004 after a massive fleet of UFO’s “suddenly emerged” from the Southern Ocean and approached Guadalajara, Mexico barely 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) from the American border. Prior to reaching the US border, however, this massive UFO fleet is said in this report to have “dimensionally returned” to their Southern Ocean “home base”.
A device that exists in two different states at the same time, and coincidentally proves that Albert Einstein was right when he thought he was wrong, has been named as the scientific breakthrough of the year.
The machine, consisting of a sliver of wafer-thin metal, is the first man-made device to be governed by the mysterious quantum forces that operate at the level of atoms and sub-atomic particles.
Normal, everyday objects obey the laws of conventional Newtonian physics, named after Sir Isaac Newton, but these rules break down on the sub-atomic scale and a whole new branch of theoretical physics had to be invented to explain what happens on this sub-microscopic level.
Well, they were making the payroll system and the timekeeping system. They were supposed to make sure that the average city worker did not steal time on their time sheets, when they were doing all the stealing themselves, according to federal prosecutors.
But after several people had been arrested and released on bail, the investigators began seizing bank accounts across the city, because they had many phantom companies. And they went to one bank where they seized a safe deposit box with—where they found $850,000 in cash in the safe deposit box. And as they were there in the bank, one of the people they had arrested the day before came to the bank with a dufflebag, apparently trying to take the cash before the prosecutors got to it, but the person got there a little late, as they had already seized the money.
The ACLU of Tennessee says it ended up on a map of potential terrorist threats after it sent a letter to school superintendents asking them to be “inclusive” in their holiday celebrations.
The civil rights group says it found itself on the Tennessee Fusion Center’s map identified under the category “terrorism events and other suspicious activity,” with the explanation “ACLU cautions Tennessee schools about observing ‘one religious holiday.'”
Skyfish is a flying organism, flying at speeds up to 1000miles/hour. This speed made skyfish undetectable to the naked human eyes.
They only found out there’s this thing in 1994, when some cliff jumpers with parachutes jumped down and filmed their jump. While the jumpers are descending, they still didn’t see anything, but when they viewed their film later, they found that there are many white flying things, which they didn’t see during their jump.
