A Michigan auto shop owner says a woman apparently upset about a $225 bill for towing her car after a crash involving 50 to 60 vehicles during the recent winter storm used a baseball bat to smash windows and electronic equipment at his business.
WXMI-TV was at Weeks Towing & Auto in Mecosta County’s Aetna Township, about 38 miles northeast of Grand Rapids, on Monday doing a story on Sunday’s U.S. 131 crash, and caught some of the argument on video. The sheriff’s department says damage is estimated at more than $5,000.
Fed up with what he views as crappy treatment from the TSA, the owner of a restaurant near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has decided to put all TSA agents on his No-Eat List.
“We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren’t allowed to come into our business,” one employee tells travel journalist Christopher Elliott. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone.”
She says that whenever a TSA agent attempts to dine at the restaurant, “we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave… Their kind aren’t welcomed in our establishment.”
Mr Chana told the Sun: ‘Today I feel like God’s special child. He’s given me so many people to look after.
‘I consider myself a lucky man to be the husband of 39 women and head of the world’s largest family.’
The family is organised with almost military discipline, with the oldest wife Zathiangi organising her fellow partners to perform household chores such as cleaning, washing and preparing meals.
One evening meal can see them pluck 30 chickens, peel 132lb of potatoes and boil up to 220lb of rice.
Coincidentally, Mr Chana is also head of a sect that allows members to take as many wives as he wants.

Ricky Lee Kalichun, a 45-year-old Indiana man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly scribbled a sharpie marker mask on his face before attacking another man with a sword.
According to Evansville police, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex just after midnight when a sword wielding man attacked.
Investigators say officers arrived to find Kalichun on the 4th floor of the complex wearing a camouflage jacket and sharpie marker scribbled on his face. He also smelled strongly of alcohol.
A spate of shooting attacks on law enforcement officers has authorities concerned about a war on cops.
In just 24 hours, at least 11 officers were shot. The shootings included Sunday attacks at traffic stops in Indiana and Oregon, a Detroit police station shooting that wounded four officers, and a shootout at a Port Orchard, Wash., Wal-Mart that injured two deputies. On Monday morning, two officers were shot dead and a U.S. Marshal was wounded by a gunman in St. Petersburg, Fla.
On Thursday, two Miami-Dade, Fla., detectives were killed by a murder suspect they were trying to arrest.
“Lenin was an extremely controversial political figure and his presence as the main figure in a necropolis in the heart of our country is absurd,” Anatoly Medinsky, an MP and member of the party’s governing committee, said.
Only 10 per cent of Lenin’s corpse remained, he said, alleging that the rest had been “ripped out and replaced a long time ago”. The body’s presence in a purpose-built mausoleum on Red Square had turned the country’s central square into a cemetery and was “blasphemous”, Mr Medinsky added.
Lenin’s waxy corpse remains a popular tourist attraction and is regularly treated with a special cocktail of chemicals to stop it from degrading.
In a complaint filed Monday morning in the U.S. District Court for Minnesota, Ventura is suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its secretary, Janet Napolitano, as well as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and its administrator, John Pistole.
Ventura accuses the agencies of violating his “basic rights to privacy and dignity, and his right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures,” after he received a pat-down by a TSA agent at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in November 2010.
Ventura, who said he has a titanium implant after hip replacement surgery in 2008, alleges the pat-down included “warrantless, non-suspicion-based offensive touching, gripping and rubbing of the genital and other sensitive areas of his body,” which, the lawsuit contends, met “the definition for an unlawful sexual assault.”
The moment the “net neutrality” debate began was the moment the net neutrality debate was lost. For once the fate of a network – its fairness, its rule set, its capacity for social or economic reformation – is in the hands of policymakers and the corporations funding them – that network loses its power to effect change. The mere fact that lawmakers and lobbyists now control the future of the net should be enough to turn us elsewhere.
Of course the Internet was never truly free, bottom-up, decentralized, or chaotic. Yes, it may have been designed with many nodes and redundancies for it to withstand a nuclear attack, but it has always been absolutely controlled by central authorities. From its Domain Name Servers to its IP addresses, the Internet depends on highly centralized mechanisms to send our packets from one place to another.
Speaking perhaps hypothetically, cuz I’m not 100% certain I’m gonna do this; depends on what it entails. I’d just like to know what I gotta do before I decide.
How might a person take their name off whatever list it is that tells the government you’re registered to vote? How does one stop being a Democrat legally?
I don’t wanna become a Republican, and I don’t want to stop being an American citizen. I just don’t want to be counted when any political party figures out how many millions of registered voters are allegedly on their side.
How does one unregister to vote?
There’s plague (yes, bubonic plague, i.e. the Black Death); chagas disease, which can cause life-threatening heart and digestive system disorders; and cat-scratch disease, which can also come from being licked by infected cats.
Though many people love getting licked or planting a kiss on a pet, it may not be such a good idea, the authors say.
The researchers found several cases of various infections transmitted this way.
The days when uncaged cats, monkeys, snakes and chickens can ride TriMet buses and trains as “service animals” (it happens more than you might think) are numbered.
But guide horses? Well, those will be good to go under new conduct rules Oregon’s largest transit agency is expected to approve next week.
Yep. You read that right. Guide horses.
The recent disappearance of a popular tampon brand is really cramping the style of city women.
Drugstore shelves have been mysteriously empty of o.b. nonapplicator tampons since late fall, leaving the feminine hygiene product’s devotees puzzled and peeved.
The popular product is in such short supply that eBay users are bidding up to $76 for three packs, which usually sell for just $8.79 a pack.
In a sense, narcissism has been done in by its own success.
Because so many narcissists are thriving — at the expense of the rest of us — it’s hard to classify “narcissism’’ as a disability. Growing up with a narcissistic parent or marrying one can be disabling, but, almost by definition, many narcissists go through life without realizing the harm they are doing to others.
A narcissist is someone who has an unrealistic sense of self-importance, a lack of empathy, and a “conviction of being different and special and entitled that is so profound that they feel it’s only natural people will admire them and want to do whatever they want to do,’’ said Dr. John M. Oldham, chief of staff at the Menninger Clinic, a psychiatric research and treatment center in Houston. “Corporate America is filled with people with a lot of this kind of problem.’’
If that isn’t bad enough, the GAO did a second sting—and this one was on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the parent of the FDA.
You have to wonder how an IRB as sloppy as Coast was licensed in the first place. This sting shows us. They put together an application to set up an IRB and sent it to HHS. They named their sting Trooper, after a three-legged dog of a congressional staffer. (Some reports state that the company name or the CEO was Trooper, but that doesn’t fit the scheme, as you’ll see.)
The name of the fake company was Phake Medical Devices. The names of the principals were April Phuls,Timothy Witless, and Alan Ruse. The company’s location was listed as Chetesville, Arizona.
The application sailed through.

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.
