Times Square "Weed Man" Arrested After Stabbing Times Square "Beer Man"

http://gothamist.com/2013/06/22/times_square_weed_man_arrested_afte.php

According to police, the notorious "Weed Man" of Times Square, who is known for carrying a sign reading "Help! I need money for weed," got into a physical altercation with the "Beer Man" of Times Square, who is known for carrying a sign reading "I need beer." And Alien and Predator were called in as witnesses!

Couple discover 7,500 machine gun, shotgun and pistol bullets in their back garden while weeding their pond:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -pond.html

IMO the “strangeness” of this story is not the fact that someone dumped some .22 ammo (not 2.2 mm) into a garden pond—obviously done well before today’s sky-high prices for .22—but rather the absolute pants-wetting reaction of apparently everyone involved. Based on the corrosion on those cartridges, they’ve been underwater for quite a long time, and apparently Brits don’t know that water ruins ammunition:

The couple dialled 101 and two officers arrived, quickly realised the seriousness of the situation, and called in CID officers who alerted the fire brigade to drain the ponds because the underwater search unit was not available.

Before the pair knew what was happening, two fire engines pulled up, followed by two police vans - and their garden was taken over as a full-scale assessment took place.

I don't know what's worse, the panicked reaction to dud ammo, or the fact that the police would have used the "underwater search unit" for those two tiny ponds. I'm picturing guys in full scuba gear standing in water that only comes up to their knees. It's like something from a Naked Gun movie.

Some of the comments on the article are priceless.

haha, just came in to see if this was posted. According to TSG, this is the third person to be arrested inside of a septic container (whether it be a portapotty, etc), covered in human fecal matter, for the sole purpose of watching women go the bathroom. Outstanding

http://www.inquisitr.com/858842/satanis ... pink-mass/

A group of satanists have turned Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelp’s dead mother into a lesbian.

Yes, this is a pretty bizarre story. According to ABC, the New York based Satanic Temple decided to hold a “pink mass” ceremony at the grave site of Catherine Johnston, the mother of Fred Phelps. The satanist group apparently believes that a “Pink Mass” ceremony can change the sexual orientation of the dead.

The Pink Mass ceremony may be a made up ritual but the WBC probably didn’t appreciate all of the same-sex love occurring near her tombstone. According to UPI, the satanists invited same-sex couples to stand on the grave and share a kiss during the “Pink mass” ceremony.

Officers Put an End to Man’s Early Morning Office Chair Ride

At around 2:30 this morning, Seattle police got a call about a man rolling down the western side of Capitol Hill in an office chair, and found the man near Lakeview Boulevard and E. Highland Drive.

When officers contacted the man—who was carrying a set of drum sticks, had a hubcap tied to his arm, and was wearing motorcycle goggles and several scarves and purses—he sat down in his chair and told police he was “late for a gig.”

The 29-year-old man initially gave police a fake name and then told officers to handcuff him.
After obliging the man’s request, officers sat the man back down in the chair and rolled him over to the curb. The man then rolled himself back into traffic and fell out of his chair (it happens to the best of us) but was caught by one of the officers.
As police helped the man over to the curb and sat him down again, he spat at an officer. The man missed the officer, but warned his salvo of spittle was simply a “warning” shot.
Officers then searched the man and found he was carrying a 12″ crowbar, and had stuffed a belt buckle and necklace into his gloves.
Officers took the man to Harborview for a mental health evaluation.


too good not to post the rest. If ever an article needed a picture to go along with it...

from the article:
When the car was pulled over, police said there was no steering wheel and the driver was allegedly using a pair of vice grips to steer.

The car was found to be unregistered and uninsured and already subject to a defect notice.

Police also allege the vehicle was involved in a hit-run crash in Folland Avenue at Northfield just minutes before it was pulled over.

you think?

Moar buildings collapse in Philly

His son, Mike McGraw Jr., said he saw the buckled buildings and watched firefighters hosing down a man who had been burned.

"They threw this baby out the window because the girl was on fire and the fireman had to catch the baby," he said.
