    Conversation from my train ride this morning. I was standing on the platform waiting for the train when this voice from my left side says. "Canadian?"

    I turn to look and there's this guy standing beside me, ball cap, checkered shirt and blue jeans, looking at me. So I answer, "Yes Sir. I am."

    "Military?"

    "Yes Sir, Army."

    "Where ya from?"

    "West Coast Canada, Victoria."

    "Ya got baaahrrr up tharh?" {You see where this conversation is going? LOL}

    "Yes, we do. Up further north."

    "Waat about them Elk?"

    "We have them too."

    The conversation covered several aspects about hunting and how to move the carcass of a moose or grizzly bear out of the woods; the price and production of gasoline; the price of housing, and finished with building a home in West Virginia to get away from the City.

    True story.

    **Its kinda funny how an inoccuous conversation like that can give a bit of humour to a day. I'm still shaking my head, but sporting a grin to go with it. Just another Day On Da Job, making like an Ambassador or something like that.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) - An urn containing the ashes of a deceased
    woman was exhumed from the grave of another woman, where it was
    mistakenly buried years ago, and will be reburied in a family plot.
    Four men took turns digging Friday at Union Cemetery in Arnold,
    about 17 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, to remove the urn of
    Kathleen Leaudrey Cribbs from the grave of Catherine Lynch, who
    died in 1987 at age 63.
    The ashes were accidentally buried in Lynch's grave after Cribbs
    died in 1998 at age 89.
    Lynch's two daughters, who live in New York, discovered that
    Cribbs' remains had been buried atop their mother's when they saw
    Cribbs' name engraved on Lynch's headstone in 2002.
    After a protracted legal battle, cemetery officials settled with
    the Lynch family for more than $1,500 and a new headstone.
    An attorney representing Union Cemetery said it was unclear why
    Cribbs was buried in Lynch's grave.
    Cribbs' ashes are expected to be buried alongside the remains of
    relatives at the cemetery before Wednesday.

    Wink The BUTT Cam??

    PHOENIX (AP) - Worried that new pair of high-fashion jeans may
    just make your butt look fat?
    Now shoppers in one upscale Scottsdale store can check it out
    for themselves before someone else makes the observation - using
    the Butt Cam, a camera positioned just so that's connected to a
    video screen on a dressing room wall.
    The cameras at Hub Clothing illustrate what many already know -
    the most important test of a great pair of jeans is how they look
    from behind.
    Hub, which sells mens and womens jeans for between $135 and
    $900, rolled out the cameras this week, and already they've created
    a buzz.
    "It gives you a perspective that you can't find any other
    way," said Kip Merritt, a 50-year-old interior designer who was
    checking himself out in front of the camera. "What other choices
    do you have? A three-way mirror?"
    Hub co-owner Tom Simon, a 30-year veteran of the retail
    industry, came up with the Butt Cam after watching customers twist
    and turn in front of mirrors to check out their derrieres.
    "They want to look good to other people, not just themselves,"
    Simon said. "And even though it seems ridiculous, there's nothing
    you wear more than jeans."
    The setup also allows Hub employees to display views of their
    more confident shoppers on flat-screen TVs behind the cash
    registers for all to see.
    Hub sales associate Alyssa Rodriguez, 19, said the Butt Cam has
    been just as popular with men as with women.
    "Everybody's been coming in to look at it. They get a kick out
    of it," Rodriguez said.

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Police were hoping for a good turnout at
    their "Kicks for Guns" sneaker exchange, but they weren't
    expecting a surface-to-air missile launcher.
    An Ocoee man showed up and exchanged the 4-foot-long launcher
    for size-3 Reebok sneakers for his daughter, the Orlando Sentinel
    reported Friday.
    Taking advantage of the exchange's no-questions-asked policy,
    the man was not identified. He told the Orlando Sentinel that he
    found the weapon in a shed he tore down last week.
    "I didn't know what to do with it, so I brought it here," he
    told the newspaper. "I took it to three dumps to try to get rid of
    it and they told me to get lost."
    Besides the missile launcher police collected more than 250
    guns. They were all exchanged for sneakers or $50 gift
    certificates.

    Naked TV news stripped of subsidy, carries on
    TOKYO (Reuters) - An embarrassed Japanese government has
    cut the subsidy, but a Tokyo TV company said on Friday it would
    carry on making a striptease news show with sign language for
    hearing-impaired viewers.
    The government made grants totaling 400,000 yen ($3,500) to
    help cover production of the weekly five-minute program on
    satellite TV, which features a newsreader who removes her
    clothes between news items that she delivers in sign language.
    The funding dried up when the government, under fire for
    supporting "Naked Sign Language News," changed funding
    guidelines for programming aimed at the disabled to exclude
    pornography, local media reported.
    "Of course we will continue making the program," said
    Shinichiro Fukuyama, a spokesman for makers Paradise
    Television. "We weren't doing it for the subsidy, we just
    wanted to make something viewers would enjoy."
    Most people who had contacted the station about the program
    were supportive, saying deaf people had the right to enjoy the
    same programs as other people, he added.

    Diver is young fisherman's catch of the day
    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch scuba diver became the
    surprise catch of the day for a 13-year-old boy fishing in the
    Netherlands when his hook got caught in the man's lip.
    "I heard a sound on my head and immediately I felt a jerk
    on my lip," Wim van Huffelen, who had been swimming in the
    North Sea, was quoted as saying by Dutch newspaper De
    Telegraaf.
    The daily ran a picture of the diver with the hook embedded
    in his lower lip.
    The diver had been swimming close to the shore near the
    southern Dutch town of Zierikzee. A doctor managed to free him
    from the hook.

    Priest fined for early morning bell-ringing
    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch priest has been fined 5,000
    euros ($6,800) for ringing his church bells too loudly in the
    morning.
    The Catholic priest began ringing the bells at just after
    seven in the morning soon after arriving in Tilburg about six
    months ago, a spokesman for the town council said.
    This prompted dozens of complaints from residents and the
    council in the southern town agreed the priest was breaking the
    rules.
    "The priest can ring his bells whenever he likes but he has
    to keep within noise regulations. People don't appreciate it,"
    the spokesman said.
    The priest risks further fines if he continues.

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - The theft of a 50-foot backyard
    tree has a Conejo Valley homeowner stumped.
    Kelley Fornatoro left on vacation Aug. 2 and returned a week
    later to find her 50-foot California pepper tree missing. Police
    Capt. Randy Pentis said it was felony grand theft.
    "It's creepy. I want them to get these guys," Fornatoro said,
    adding she feels violated.
    Oxnard-based Julian's Tree Care said someone called for removal
    of the nearly 30-year-old tree. It took two days to cut it down at
    a cost of $3,500.
    The company hasn't been paid and police also consider Julian's
    Tree Care a victim. Experts said it would cost up to $60,000 to
    replace the tree.
    Fornatoro called a neighbor who watched her house while she was
    away and the neighbor was shocked to learn Fornatoro wasn't behind
    removal of the tree.

    Talking Hot sex? Friction? You set me on fire baby!!

    German teenagers' debut sex act interrupted by fire
    BERLIN, Aug 17 (Reuters) - A teenage couple having sex for
    the first time were interrupted when candles set fire to the
    girl's attic bedroom and forced them to flee naked from her
    parents' house, German daily Bild reported on Friday.
    The girl had wanted to create a romantic atmosphere for the
    occasion. But when the room suddenly became engulfed with
    flames, they had to make a hasty escape.
    The couple, both 18, were pictured naked in the paper among
    the burned wreckage of the attic. A charred teddy had survived
    but the fire wrecked the entire top floor of the house causing
    around 100,000 euros ($134,800) worth of damage.

    Half-Naked Man Leads Police On Chase
    Police Seek To Find Out Why Man Wasn't Wearing Pants

    POSTED: 11:05 am EDT August 23, 2007
    UPDATED: 12:54 pm EDT August 23, 2007

    HOUSTON -- A half-naked man led police on a chase through north Houston early Thursday, KPRC-TV reported.

    Houston police said an officer spotted the man driving without headlights in a residential neighborhood at about midnight.

    The officer attempted to stop the car, but the driver took off, police said.

    Investigators said the chase lasted for about 15 minutes and reached speeds of 90 mph.

    The man jumped out of the car without his pants on, police said. He ran through a yard and jumped over a fence, detectives said.

    After an officer caught up with the man, the two struggled, officials said.

    The man bashed his head on the hood of a patrol car and smashed his face against a window, police said. He was treated at the scene for his injuries. {I wonder how many times he actually bashed his own head on the hood and window?}

    Investigators said the man's pants were found in his car. They are working to determine why he was not wearing them.

    Woman Fights 27-Year-Old Speeding Ticket
    Woman Says She Has Never Been Pulled Over

    POSTED: 10:25 am EDT August 23, 2007
    UPDATED: 2:34 pm EDT August 23, 2007

    QUECHEE, Vt. -- Janelle Dunklee had been driving without a driver's license for 27 years without even realizing it, reported WPTZ-TV in Plattsburgh.

    Dunklee said she recently got a letter from the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles stating that she needed to pay a fine to have her license reinstated.

    Dunklee, not knowing why her license had been suspended in the first place, said she called the DMV.

    She said the DMV told her they had been clearing out their records and found Dunklee owed money on a speeding ticket issued in 1980.

    Dunklee said that upon further research, she found out she supposedly had been pulled over for going 43 in a 30-mph zone in Hartford on Sept. 17, 1980, and had been issued a $26 ticket.

    Dunklee said she had never been pulled over in her life, and decided to fight the charge.

    On Tuesday, Dunklee went to court and said the prosecution and the judge were surprised by the delay. They were so surprised, in fact, that they dismissed the ticket.

    State's Attorney Robert Sand said that in 1980, paperwork was done by hand, and it wasn't uncommon for things to get lost.

    The officer who issued the ticket to Dunklee said it was so long ago that he couldn't remember ever giving it.

    Student Suspended Over Stadium Prank

    Thursday, August 30, 2007 Bondage File Read more weird news in the Bondage File.

    (08-30) 11:18 PDT Hilliard, Ohio (AP) --

    A high school student who tricked football fans from a crosstown rival into holding up signs that together spelled out, "We Suck," was suspended for the prank, students said.

    Kyle Garchar, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School in suburban Columbus, said he spent about 20 hours over three days plotting the trick, which was captured on video and posted on the video-sharing Web site YouTube. He said he was inspired by a similar prank pulled by Yale students in 2004, when Harvard fans were duped into holding up cards with the same message.

    At the end of the video, Garchar wryly thanks the 800 Hilliard Darby High School supporters who raised the cards at the start of the third quarter during last Friday's football game.

    "It couldn't have been done without you," reads the closing frame of the video.

    Garchar, 17, created a grid to plan how the message would be spelled out once fans in three sections held up either a black or white piece of construction paper.

    Directions left on stadium seats instructed fans to check that the number listed on their papers matched their seat numbers. Darby supporters were told the message would read "Go Darby."

    "It was tedious," Garchar said. "I didn't really think it was going to work."

    But it did, and everyone at Davidson has been talking it ever since, said Jordan Moore, a junior.

    "That was the ultimate in-your-face," he said. "I think it was ingenious."

    Davidson Principal John Bandow had told students that he expected them to show sportsmanship at the game, which Darby won 21-10.

    Bandow gave Garchar three days of in-school suspension and banned him from extracurricular activities for a semester, the students said. Two Darby students who helped Garchar received the same punishment after the principals from both schools spoke by phone.

    Hilliard schools spokeswoman Michelle Wray said she couldn't confirm the punishment because the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act forbids the release of student disciplinary information.

    "We weren't expecting it to be such a severe punishment," said Jen Trimmer, 17, one of the students involved. "We just thought it was all in good fun."

    Thumbs down Sad but true

    VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - A serial crank caller using a donated
    cell phone has plagued 911 with nearly 2,000 fake emergency calls
    over the past six months, tying up dispatchers and sending police
    and firefighters on wild goose chases, authorities said.
    A man identifying himself as Nomar has reported himself the
    victim of everything from a drug overdose and a possible heart
    attack to robbery and attempted suicide. Officials said they didn't
    know why nearly all the false emergencies he calls in purportedly
    take place in Vallejo, a city of about 100,000 along the waters
    north of San Francisco Bay.
    "He can be quite convincing and he definitely knows the
    geography of Vallejo," said Vallejo police spokesman Bill Powell.
    "If we can't determine it's a false call, we'll send people out."
    He started making the calls in March, according to the
    California Highway Patrol, which handles most of the wireless 911
    calls for the San Francisco Bay area.
    Investigators analyzed the cell phone signal to track the caller
    to an area in San Francisco but have not been able to obtain a more
    precise location. The CHP determined the phone originated with a
    company in Oklahoma that donated old employee cell phones to an
    organization that distributes them to the homeless.
    The phone has no service carrier, which has prevented
    investigators from discovering any further personal information
    about the caller. The man has been able to continue making the
    calls because 911 calls are free even from cell phones without paid
    accounts, authorities said.
    Each crank call could result in a single misdemeanor count of a
    false emergency report to a public agency, and investigators were
    documenting all the calls in hopes of eventually prosecuting the
    man, Powell said.
    "People like him prevent real emergencies from getting through
    quickly," CHP spokeswoman Mary Pat Marshall said.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The city's pooper scooper law applies to
    everyone, even police officers on mounted patrol and K-9 unit duty
    - but a new statute may allow them to start leaving the evidence
    behind.
    An ordinance amendment to be taken up Tuesday is aimed at making
    it easier for the city to increase its use of mounted police
    patrols.
    Alderwomen Judy Compton and Lauren Cnare, co-sponsors of the
    amendment, said the change is meant to allow officers in the saddle
    or partnered with canines to patrol events such as University of
    Wisconsin football games without having to stop to pick up
    droppings like civilian pet owners.
    Lt. Victor Wohl, who oversees the police department's five-dog
    canine unit, wasn't aware of the proposed change, but he said it
    isn't likely to affect his officers' work.
    "The K-9 handlers are in most instances going to pick up after
    their dogs," he said.

    MIAMI (AP) - A former CIA operative and Cuban exile plans to
    auction what he says is a lock of Che Guevara's hair, snipped
    before the Argentinian revolutionary and friend of Fidel Castro was
    buried in 1967.
    Gustavo Villoldo, 71, was involved in Guevara's capture in the
    jungles of Bolivia, according to unclassified U.S. records and
    other documents. He plans to auction the hair and other items kept
    in a scrapbook since the joint CIA-Bolivian army mission 40 years
    ago.
    "It's time for me to put the past behind and pass these on to
    someone else," said Villoldo, also a veteran of the ill-fated Bay
    of Pigs invasion of Cuba.
    The scrapbook also holds a map used to track down Guevara in
    Bolivia, photos of Guevara's body, intercepted messages between
    Guevara and his rebels and a set of Guevara's fingerprints taken
    before his burial.
    It's hard to predict how much the collection will net at auction
    because there is nothing comparable on the market, said Tom Slater,
    director of the Americana department at Heritage Auctions of
    Dallas, which will put the collection on the block Oct. 25-26.
    "We cannot recall ever having seen artifacts relating to Che's
    dramatic career and death appearing on the auction market, and we
    expect this offering to excite broad bidder interest," Slater
    said.
    The Cuban government announced in 1995 that its anthropologists
    had uncovered Guevara's remains from Bolivia, and re-interred them
    in Cuba without doing DNA testing. Villoldo and other exiles and
    experts say the body is still in Bolivia.

    NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A group of residents is suing a
    farmer, claiming the propane cannon he uses to scare away birds
    from his sweet corn is too loud.
    Some of produce farmer Dennis Polley's neighbors say the propane
    blasts - sometimes as loud as 120 decibels - have prevented them
    from enjoying their property.
    Phil Palmgreen, whose property is roughly 500 yards away from
    Polley's, said he could feel the impact of the blasts in his chest.
    "It's been so bad all summer we've never even had a cookout on
    our deck because it was going to go off every couple of minutes,"
    Palmgreen said.
    Polley acknowledged the device is loud, but "it's got to be
    loud to work," he said. "To get the birds' attention, it's got to
    shock them a little bit."
    Polley and his wife Debby are fighting the lawsuit.
    To lose "would start a chain reaction for every farmer in
    Jessamine County," Debby Polley said. "Because what's going to be
    next? Will they not want you to start your tractors until 10
    o'clock in the morning?"
    Jessamine County's noise-control ordinance exempts from
    penalties a "noise disturbance created by farm livestock, the
    operation of farm machinery or noise created by other activities
    relating to an agricultural operation."
    Steve Ayres, another plaintiff in the lawsuit filed last week,
    said that the group doesn't believe a cannon is a normal
    agricultural sound.

    Question

    WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - It was embarrassing enough Mark Stahnke
    woke up in a neighbor's yard without his pants. But the trousers
    had a cashier's check for $41,093 meant for his son, and several
    hundred dollars in cash.
    But he got it all back on Friday, including the pants, thanks to
    an honest citizen.
    Stahnke said he doesn't know what happened between when he left
    the bar and when he woke up the next morning, and police were
    skeptical when he filed a report on Monday.
    "We're used to hearing weird stories, but with his intoxication
    we figured this one would be different, that the amount of money
    wouldn't be exact," Waukesha Police Lt. William Graham said. "How
    do you get so intoxicated that you lose your pants?"
    Stahnke said he met his son at a local bar, and doesn't remember
    much afterward.
    "I woke up cold not knowing where the heck I was, and I didn't
    realize it at first because I still had my shoes and socks on," he
    said. "When I got up, I realized, my God, I don't have any
    pants."
    Tim Curzan's dog, Joe, found the pants at a nearby intersection,
    according to a police report. Curzan went through the pockets after
    hearing change rattle and removed the soggy contents, but left the
    pants behind.
    After the contents dried, Curzan found the cashier's check and
    tried twice, unsuccessfully, to deliver the items to where he
    thought the owner lived.
    On Wednesday, the pants were still at the intersection, so
    Curzan picked them up and took them to the police, who contacted
    Stahnke to claim his items.

    Red face Beef tips?

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - To (mis)quote Shakespeare: A ham! A ham!
    My finger for a ham!
    Authorities say a burglar left part of his fingertip behind when
    he broke in to a park visitor center outside of Memphis and stole
    $400 in Honeybaked Ham gift certificates.
    Lt. F. Hughes, an investigator with the Shelby County Sheriff's
    Department said the burglar broke a lock, ransacked an office, and
    rifled through an office manager's desk. Hughes believes the man
    severed part of his finger while breaking glass in a door to gain
    entry to the Shelby Farms office.
    "When we do find him, we'll be looking for him to explain why
    he has a missing finger, and why we recovered one," Hughes said.
    Detectives were able to lift a partial print from the finger,
    Hughes said, although he was unable to say which finger had been
    left in the office.
    "By me not having the rest of the hand, I can't determine that
    right now," he said. "But, when I get the rest of the hand, I'll
    be able to kind of match that with what we have so far."
    The burglar also stole some files from the manager's office. A
    witness later saw a man tossing the files - and the gift
    certificates - out of his car window.
    The suspect is still on the loose.

    Wink I'm still here!!!

    DETROIT (AP) - News of Robert Thomas' death has been greatly
    exaggerated.
    Thomas thought the letter from the Michigan Department of Human
    Services was amusing - at first. But the Detroit resident isn't
    laughing now.
    Thomas said he was told the problem would be corrected in a few
    days. Instead, he said he received notice that his Medicaid
    coverage was being canceled due to his death.
    Thomas is a diabetic who needs Medicaid to supplement more than
    $1,000 a month for insulin and other medications, WDIV-TV reported.
    The state has apologized and promises to restore Thomas' medical
    benefits by next week.

    Red face Tissue anyone?

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Call it theater of the macabre: A jar
    containing a small piece of tissue from the body of John Wilkes
    Booth, President Abraham Lincoln's killer, will be on display when
    the musical "Assassins" opens in Philadelphia.
    In fact, it will be a twin bill: theatergoers will also be able
    view a piece of the brain of the lesser-known presidential assassin
    Charles Guiteau, the man who killed President James A. Garfield in
    1881.
    The specimens will be on loan to the Arden Theatre from
    Philadelphia's Mutter Museum, which boasts a large collection of
    medical oddities. They will be on display in the lobby for one
    night, the opening of "Assassins" on Sept. 19.
    "People know who they are, but to see them in the flesh - no
    pun intended - to me is exciting, it's relevant, it's interesting
    and it's educational," said Anna Dhody, a spokeswoman for the
    Mutter Museum.
    The museum is run by the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
    Dhody said the samples were acquired long ago but she did not know
    the circumstances.
    Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, at Ford's Theatre, and died
    the next morning.
    Booth was killed by pursuers 12 days after shooting Lincoln.
    Guiteau was hanged - after an insanity defense failed - on June 30,
    1882.
    The tissue fragment from Booth is believed to have come from his
    neck, Dhody said.
    "Assassins," a Stephen Sondheim musical that explores the nine
    people who have taken aim at U.S. presidents, won five Tony awards
    in 2002.
    "When you have the first two ... successful assassins in U.S.
    history in a city, and you have this wonderful show going on, how
    do you not combine the two?" said J Nathan Bazzel, a Mutter Museum
    docent who came up with the idea.
    The specimens are preserved in fluid in small, vintage glass
    jars. If a few patrons find the display in poor taste, organizers
    hope most will appreciate the chance to connect to history.
    "We prefer to think of it as we're showing our tangible
    evidence of very, very important parts of American history," Dhody
    said. "So we're hoping people would approach it from more of a
    historical than a macabre viewpoint."

    Wink Flying nun looks like sh*t

    SALLY FIELDS THINKS SHE LOOKS LIKE "DOG POOP"
    NEW YORK (AP) - She doesn't like the way she looks. She really,
    really doesn't like the way she looks. In fact, Sally Field tells
    Health Magazine she thinks she looks like "dog poop." She says
    she's not different from a lot of women who want to "put a piece
    of black velvet over the mirror when they turn 50." And she's 60
    now.

    Truth stranger than fiction as author jailed
    WARSAW (Reuters) - A Polish crime writer has been jailed
    for 25 years after authorities found he had committed a murder
    that had been described in one of his thrillers, officials said
    Wednesday.
    In his 2003 book "Amok," Krystian Bala described in detail
    the brutal murder of a Polish businessman.
    Police found that the fictional crime had similarities with
    a case in 2000 when a body was fished out of the river Oder in
    the town of Wroclaw, near the German border.
    Prosecutors said Bala had humiliated, tortured, starved and
    later killed his victim, who had a love affair with the
    writer's wife.
    "The court has sentenced Krystian B. to 25 years in prison
    for the murder of his ex-wife's lover," said a spokesman for
    the court in Wroclaw.

    Question

    Woman lived with dead aunt for year
    VIENNA (Reuters) - An Austrian woman lived with the
    mummified remains of her aunt for a year, Vienna police said
    Wednesday.
    Officers found the corpse of the 96-year-old aunt under a
    blanket on a bed after ignoring the 51-year-old niece's claim
    that her aunt was sleeping and should not be disturbed, a
    police statement said.
    A preliminary inquiry had determined that the niece, who
    was taken to a psychiatric hospital for examination, may have
    covered up the death for financial reasons, it added.
    Austrian news agency APA quoted police investigator Gerald
    Hoebart as saying possible theft was being looked into since
    the younger woman appeared to have lived off her aunt's pension
    since the death and used her cashpoint card to withdraw money.
    An autopsy was planned to check whether any foul play was
    involved in the death, believed to have happened in August
    2006.

    Adulterers beware - or pay the price
    BOGOTA (Reuters) - Married Colombians engaged in passionate
    extra-curricular activities may soon have to think twice about
    their philandering ways if a senator's proposed legislation
    punishing adultery gets the green light.
    Sen. Edgar Espindola said he has proposed a law that would
    impose fines and enforced community service as punishment for
    adulterers in an effort to protect family values and shield
    children from broken homes.
    "I believe a lot of my companions are going to support this
    initiative," Espindola said on Tuesday. "This project should
    motivate Colombians to reflect on the importance of the
    marriage, the home and the importance of family."
    He said aggrieved parties could take complaints and
    evidence such as photographs to local family judges, who would
    decide to impose fines of up to 20 minimum monthly salaries --
    around $4,000 -- and obligatory welfare service.
    Spouses forgiven by partners would escape punishment.
