    The big boom anticipated by thousands of spectators gathered in Sioux Falls, S.D., turned out to be a big bust when the dynamite exploded as planned but failed to blow the Zip Feed Mill to smithereens.
    Thats pretty funny, but maybe not quite so unusual. I can't remember exactly when it was done, but in Victoria we have the "World Famous" Butchart Gardens, which before the gardens were created around 1910, was a rock quarry. There was a 100 foot chimney that was part of the processing plant. In the late 90's (I think it was) they decided to blow it down. According to the Times Columnist it took more than 5 separate attempts to make it fall, and in the end they used a crane to know down the remainder of it.

    December 6, 2005 -- Here's an item to make America's Web surfers flush with embarrassment. A new study reveals that more people are logging on — while in the bathroom. "Over half of those who used wi-fi had used it in the bathroom," said Jeffrey Cole of the University of Southern California, adding that his findings "are not for comic relief — it was a genuine finding."

    December 7, 2005 --Some people play Christmas carols to get into the holiday spirit — authorities in Holland are playing them to get rid of unruly teens. Officials in Rotterdam say that since they've begun blasting carols from big loudspeakers where youth gangs loiter, the kids have vanished. Silent night, as they say.

    December 8, 2005 -- The bucks stopped here.
    Pedestrians watched in horror as five deer made their way onto the top of a five-story parking garage in Ranson, W.Va., then committed mass suicide by leaping to their deaths. "They took the plunge. It was absolutely weird," said Police Cpl. Steve Cox. He said that the carcasses were given to passers-by for butchering.

    Enjoy the trip, Ray. Actually, it's pretty common for law enforcement to allow passing motorists to take road killed deer and butcher them if they want to. It saves the state the cost of removing and disposing of the deer.

    A friend of mine picked up a deer from an officer on the way to work one morning. In the best tradition of a Monty Python skit, half way to work he (and the car pool riding with him) discovered that the deer "wasn't dead yet" and was kicking the heck out of the trunk. Too bad I wasn't around to hear him explain how dents got put in the trunk lid of a state car.....

    December 12, 2005 -- Move over, Scrooge. The most dreaded Christmas visitor is the mother-in-law, a new survey by Travelodge says. One in five adults cringes at the thought of their spouse's mom spending the festive season with them, with folks fearing they'll stay too long, criticize Christmas dinner, say the house is dirty, smoke and turn up late.

    Well thank you

    December 13, 2005 -- Have yourself a morbid little Christmas with some unusual gifts from the Clark County Coroner's Office in Las Vegas — which has just opened its own gift shop. There's a coffee mug with the words "Playing for Keeps," a $10 fake jawbone that holds business cards and a T-shirt that reads "Coroner . . . Cashed Out in Las Vegas." "That's about as risquι as we go," said Assistant Coroner John Fudenberg. "We certainly don't want to make a mockery of death."

    December 14, 2005 -- For several hours Firehouse Forums went down...But Weird But True was still there

    Shayna Richardson was making her first solo skydiving jump when, you guessed it, she had trouble with her parachutes. "I said, 'I'm going to die,' " recalled Richardson, 21, of Joplin, Mo., who fell to earth at 50 mph and hit the ground face-first. Miraculously, she survived — but broke her pelvis and her leg, lost six teeth and now has 15 steel plates. Doctors also discovered she was pregnant. Four surgeries and two months later, she and her three-month fetus are doing fine.

    Deer Crashes Into Smoothie Cafe Animal Taken To Nearby Sanctuary

    POSTED: 2:47 pm EST December 14, 2005 UPDATED: 2:59 pm EST December 14, 2005

    WELLINGTON, Fla. -- Customers at a Florida cafe got more than the daily special on Tuesday when a deer crashed through a window.

    Employees at the Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Palm Beach County figured the deer was not looking for a smoothie.

    None of the six people in the store at the time was injured, but the deer lost an antler.

    Deputies and wildlife officials managed to get him into a truck, then took him to a nearby sanctuary to recover.

    Wildlife officials said they believe the young buck lived in some nearby woods and just got lost. The deer will be released back into the wild after his injuries have healed.

    December 15, 2005 -- Ho, ho . . . Oh, no!
    A department store Santa Claus on his way home was beaten up by stressed-out Christmas shoppers. Stefan Stettler, of Wiesbaden, Germany, was still in costume when he asked two men, on edge after a full day's shopping, "Tell Santa what [you] want for Christmas." The pair grabbed Stettler's sack and beat him over the head with it, breaking his fingers as he tried to protect himself.

    [Drunk, Half-Naked Finn Sets Norway Record

    Friday, December 16, 2005 (12-16) 08:12 PST OSLO, Norway (AP) --

    A Finnish citizen arrested on a public bus while drunk and nearly naked has set an apparent record for unpaid fines in Norway, with an estimated 99 of them, police said Friday.

    The man, whose name was not released, is known by police for his tendency to discard pieces of clothing as his level of intoxication increases, the Bergens Tidende newspaper reported.

    "He has gotten up to 99 fines," police attorney Rudolf Christophersen told the newspaper. "In the (Bergen area's) Hordaland Police District alone he has 95,000 kroner (euro12,200; US$14,260) worth of fines. That must be a record."

    The man, whom police said offered up five different identities, has repeatedly been expelled from Norway, but keeps returning.

    In the latest incident, on Wednesday, police received a telephone call from the bus driver in Bergen, the main city on Norway's west coast, who said: "There is a naked, drunk, difficult Finn causing trouble on board."

    Police found the man dressed only his underpants, and extremely drunk, and are seeking to have him jailed on charges that include indecent exposure, vagrancy, public drunkenness and failing to pay his outstanding fines.

    Neither Christophersen nor Bergen police spokesman Trygve Hillestad could immediately be reached for comment.

    Default Some Peoples Children (or Maybe Their Parents?)

    2005 Offers Fresh Tales of the Bizarre
    By PATRICK CASEY, Associated Press Writer

    Thursday, December 15, 2005

    Bondage File Read more weird news in the Bondage File.

    (12-15) 13:39 PST NEW YORK, (AP) --

    The Easter Bunny was hopping mad but kept his cool after being socked by a boy, a Wal-Mart greeter was sacked for showing a lot more than customers cared to see and a prep football coach was reprimanded for some eccentric licking.

    2005 offered fresh tales of bizarre lust, quirky cuisine, multiple marriages and other foibles of human existence.

    SAY WHAT TO ME, DUDE?

    Like most everybody, LaChania Govan of Chicago got bounced around when she called her cable company to complain. She made dozens of calls and was even transferred to a person who spoke Spanish — a language she doesn't understand. But when she got her August bill from Comcast she had no trouble understanding she'd made somebody mad. It was addressed to "Bitch Dog.""I was like you got to be freaking kidding me," said Govan, 25, of her reaction when she saw the bill. "I was so mad I couldn't even cuss." Two employees were fired after company officials went through records and identified them as being involved in the incident.

    JUST WHAT WAS IN THAT RECIPE?

    How about the Idaho high school boy who fed a batch of semen-frosted brownies to a fellow student and his friends? It seems the teenager was more than a bit ticked when his classmate put peanut butter in his cheese sandwich days before. As a police report said, the prankster, who has since agreed to admit to three counts of disturbing the peace, "hated peanut butter and it made him more mad than he could explain."

    GAVE A LICKING AND KEPT ON TICKING

    An Oregon education board reprimanded a Central Linn High School football coach for licking the wounds of several student athletes. Coach Scott Reed admitted licking blood from the knee of one student and the arm of another. It was not clear why he did it. Linn County Sheriff Dave Burright called the licking "bizarre" but not criminal because contact wasn't forced. Three students said it appeared the coach was "just joking around."

    SO EASY. EVEN A CHILD CAN DO IT

    An Anderson County, S.C., sheriff's deputy was temporarily sidelined by his boss after the officer's pistol went off during a gun safety class at a middle school. It seems the weapon discharged when a student pulled the trigger as the deputy was showing the kids how hard it was to take a gun from an officer's holster. The bullet fired into the floor, and debris cut two students.

    ONE WIFE AT A TIME

    Another South Carolina deputy had a lapse of judgment, too, but his was of the matrimonial variety. Sumter County sheriff's deputy Jay Follin was fired for being married to two women at the same time. Follin, 27, was separated from his first wife when he married his second, according to a department investigation. His second wife, the investigation revealed, was already married to another man at the time. Everything became known when the husband of Follin's second wife filed a complaint with the sheriff's department. The couple was separated at the time.

    PSST! TRADE YA SOME GOAT FOR A ROCK

    Four Connellsville, Pa., men ended up behind bars after they allegedly stole and butchered a goat so they could trade it for crack cocaine. Two of the men, police said, stole and killed the 4-year-old pygmy goat and then took it to another residence where two more men skinned and butchered the animal.

    40 GOATS FOR CHELSEA CLINTON. DO I HEAR 50?

    Kenyan councilman Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor says he offered Bill Clinton 40 goats and 20 cows for his daughter's hand in marriage five years ago. He's still awaiting an answer.

    HEY! WHATCHA LOOKING AT?

    A Pittston, Maine, man arrested after he was found peering at a teenage girl from the business end of a New Hampshire rest-stop privy has pleaded no contest to criminal trespass. Gary J. Moody was given a 30-day sentence that will be suspended if he maintains good behavior for two years. The judge cited Moody's public humiliation from the ensuing publicity in not jailing him.

    HOOD? WHAT HOOD? WE DON'T SEE NOTHING

    Two Cedar Rapids, Iowa, men landed in jail after they continued driving on Interstate 380 when the hood of their car popped open and covered their windshield. Instead of stopping to fix the problem, the men stuck their heads out the windows so they could see and kept going. Two Linn County deputies took note and pulled them over.

    ANOTHER STORY ABOUT THE DANGERS OF SMOKING

    A man riding in a car on Arkansas 234 near the Oklahoma border didn't go to jail following a long night of drinking. But he did go to a hospital after jumping from the vehicle in an effort to retrieve his lit cigarette. Jeff Foran was recovering after leaping from the car and landing hard on the roadway in a failed bid to grab the butt, state police said. "If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it," said Trooper Jamie Graver.

    MAMA MIA! ALL SHE WANTED WAS SOME PIZZA

    An 86-year-old Charlotte, N.C., woman spent two nights in the city lockup after police said she called 911 dispatchers 20 times in a little more than 30 minutes to complain about service at a pizza parlor. Dorothy Densmore told dispatchers the shop refused to deliver a pie to her apartment. Densmore wanted the workers arrested. Instead, police arrested her.

    NEVER WHEN MARRIED

    Authorities in Wisconsin pinched a 63-year-old man who allegedly had a fondness for calves.

    Harold G. Hart, of Neillsville, reportedly told police he stopped at a Greenwood farm "at least 50 times" to have sex with calves there. The man, however, told police he never had sex with animals while maintaining a relationship with a girlfriend or his wife.

    HONEY, I'M HOT FOR YOU

    A 38-year-old Oregon man wearing a gasoline-soaked cape set himself on fire before getting down on one knee and asking his longtime girlfriend to marry him. About 100 people gathered to watch Todd Grannis perform the flaming stunt for Malissa Kusiek, who said "yes."

    SHOOT. HE WAS JUST TRYING TO BE FRIENDLY

    In Muscatine, Iowa, Dean L. Wooten was fired for greeting Wal-Mart customers with a computer-generated photo in which he appeared to be naked — except for a carefully placed Wal-Mart bag. Wooten reportedly told customers the store was cutting costs and the bag was the company's new uniform. A supervisor told him to stop showing the photo after customers complained. He was canned when he displayed the photo again.

    AIN'T FUNNY TO THIS BUNNY

    The Easter Bunny wasn't laughing this year. Bryan Johnson, who portrayed the holiday rabbit at a mall in Bay City, Mich., says he was pummeled in an unprovoked attack by a 12-year-old boy.

    "He just started hitting," Johnson said. Johnson suffered a bloody nose but kept his cool because he figured it was inappropriate for the Easter Bunny to battle back.

    Thumbs up

    December 16, 2005 -- A Massachusetts BROTHER saved a dog's life by giving her mouth-to-snout resuscitation. Pixie, a 12-year-old mixed-breed terrier wasn't breathing when she was pulled from a burning home by Salem firefighter Richard LeBlanc. He gave Pixie the kiss of life and revived her.

    Good Job Rich...

    December 17, 2005 -- New Hampshire jeweler David Bellman gave promotional packets to the first 1,000 women arriving at a recent Manchester Monarchs hockey game — 999 of them containing fake diamonds and one containing a $2,500 half-carat sparkler. He was stunned when no one reported finding it. Turns out it had ended up in Lauri Proulx's garbage because she figured it wasn't genuine. She has her gem of a son to thank for fishing it out of the trash after learning the winning diamond hadn't surfaced.

    Question

    December 18, 2005 -- 7 days till Christmas.
    So you think people who say "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" are wrecking Christmas? Well, an Australian green group insists Christmas hurts the environment. "If your bank account is straining under the pressure of Christmas shopping, spare a thought for our environment. It's paying for our Christmas presents with water, land, air and resources," said Donald Henry, executive director of the Australian Conservation Foundation.

    These idiots are Preservationists, not conservationists.
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    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.

    December 19, 2005 -- A professor plans to create a 3-acre "body farm" in rural Iowa, where scientists can study how quickly human corpses decay under different climates. "Hopefully, I'll have those ranges of ecological habitat to be able to explore different rates of decomposition," said Tyler O'Brien, an anthropology professor at the University of Northern Iowa.
    There's one drawback. "During the peak of the summer, there could potentially be certain smells that might waft across the land," O'Brien said.
