    Talking

    What I'd like to know is....why is there going to be a wheelchair stall? Sometimes I think being PC goes a little too far....
    Cause the wheelchair stall is the great emergenecy toilet that you always turn to when all the others are being used already and you really got to go. Most people wont use the wheelchair stalls without quite knowing why, but if all the others are full...

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    August 6, 2005 -- Using a video cellphone, a man in Hull, England, sent his girlfriend live images of himself jumping to his death, a coroner's inquest was told Sherrie Smith testified that she received the chilling call from fiancé Lee Morgan shortly after he stormed out of a party following an argument. A bridge worker testified he saw Morgan jump with phone in hand.

    August 7, 2005 -- A nude swimmer in San Francisco Bay is giving seal-watchers and bayside diners more than they bargained for. Police have been fielding complaints about a skinny-dipper who surprises waterside diners by doing "fly-bys," said City Manager Dana Whitson. "Usually people look for seals." So far cops in otherwise-picturesque Sausalito across the bay have failed to nab the buff paddler — but the law may be on his side. "Right now no laws have been broken," said Detective William Fraass.

    August 8, 2005 -- A California strip-club owner put himself in the middle of a heated dispute after hanging up an ad near Los Angeles International Airport that read, "Vaginas R' Us." "In a sort of a naive way, I felt that there was nothing terrible about it, since 'The Vagina Monologues' was on Broadway forever," said Howard White, who's getting some extra publicity for his Century Lounge club. Officials say White's words aren't breaking the law, but opponents are looking to see if it violates the trademark of retailer Toys 'R' Us.

    August 9, 2005 --Men accused by women of never listening now have an excuse — women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to than are other guys', a new study claims. "The female voice is actually more complex than the male voice, due to differences in the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx," said Michael Hunter, a researcher at Sheffield University in England.

    August 10, 2005 -- Residents of upstate Schodack are seeing red over a new highway truck stop coming to Route 9 — Betty Beavers.
    Its sign features a buck-toothed, bosomy beaver dressed in a red, white and blue cap and a skirt with a little white apron. "It's lewd and indecent and insulting to women," said Joe Korghage, who lives nearby. But Betty Beavers' owner, Vincent Gramuglia, retorted, "It's not as bad as Hooters, and remember that the registered state animal is the beaver — and if they all looked like Betty, the woods would be full of hunters."

    August 11, 2005 -- A 4-year-old New Hampshire girl threw her rubber ball out the window of her parents' car — and got slapped with a $288 fine for littering. "This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. This can't be happening," said Brett Carter, stepdad of little Natasha Fryou. "You bet we're going to fight it. It's not like she was throwing bottle rockets out the window."

    August 11, 2005 -- A bikini that beeps every 15 minutes to remind its wearer to flip over in the sun is set to go on sale. The British fashion house New Look, makers of the Tan-Timer Bikini, says if it's a hit, a male version will be launched.
