The wackos come out in full force.

The everpopular soccer mom club of PETA has their ad banned.

Thank goodness!

Lost wallet found after 55 years

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/6634215.stm
Quote:
A wallet misplaced during a romantic embrace has been returned to its forgetful owner after 55 years.
Two classic car collectors from the US state of Idaho found the wallet after it fell out of the back of a vintage car they were planning to restore.

After an internet search they found and contacted the owner, Glenn Goodlove.

Mr Goodlove said he probably lost the wallet in the back seat of his 1946 Hudson car while kissing a girl when he was home on leave from the US Navy.

Most and least ticketed cars
http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/auto...r-a-cop-magnet

Hummer H2 tops the list, but strangely the other full sized GM vehicles are on the least ticket (suburban, Tahoe, Silverado and GMC full sized truck). Scion does a hat trick with 3 (out of there what 4 models) in the top 10 for most ticketed, and Toyota has 2 models in also, of coarse with Toyota now the top brand them making up half the top 10 shouldn't be a surprise.

There has got to be some demographic going on there too. Who buys a Buick Lucerne? That's right, old slow people.

It occurred to me that his lack of attentiveness could be a widespread phenomena given this article and the fact that he drove a yellow H2.

Man, I love that movie. I always cry at the end, where Liv Tyler and Bruce Willis are saying good bye. I don't know why. It's so contrived. It was on the other night and there I was...

In the words of the Guv. I'll be back!


The Planetary Society said that 2009 DD45 is likely to return
since it remains in a solar orbit that touches on the Earth's orbit,
but it could take years for it to be seen again.

In the paper it was reported they watched it for a month, not a week. Yikes.
