Dead Shark Found in Lake Michigan

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- There's no telling what might turn up in Lake Michigan.

Rich Fasi of Traverse City says he found a dead 2-foot shark in the water while fishing on West Grand Traverse Bay on Wednesday.

The saltwater fish was a juvenile blacktip shark, said Mark Tonello, a fisheries biologist from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Tonello said someone might have caught the shark off the Atlantic Coast and kept it on ice while bringing it to northern Michigan.

Another possibility is that the dead shark was dumped by someone who had kept it as a pet, Tonello said.

Billboard Near MSP Airport Welcomes Republicans to Town

In honor of the upcoming Republican National Convention, Comedy Central has a billboard welcoming the attendees to town near the Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport (Near I-494 and Hwy 77 to be more specific)

For those of you scratching your head about what an Oligarch is....

Oligarchy is a form of government where political power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society (whether distinguished by wealth, family, military powers or spiritual hegemony). The word oligarchy is translated into "rule by few." Compare with autocracy (rule by one person) and democracy (rule by the people).

Giant Inflatable Turd Terrorizes Swiss Town

Flash! An inflatable catastrophe second only to the Hindenburg disaster has occurred in Bern Switzerland at the Paul Klee Center art museum. A house-sized inflatable turd designed by American artist Paul McCarthy broke free from its moorings in high winds after the security system designed to deflate the installation failed.

Townspeople fled in terror as the work entitled "Complex Shit" cut a swath of destruction that included downed power lines and a broken window at a children's home. At this point we can confirm that there were no poop related injuries, but it is a scene that the townspeople (and this reporter) will not soon forget. They will be forced to relive it every time they drop a deuce. Oh, the humanity!

Another Smear Debunked

More bullshit from the right has surfaced this week as small minded conservative blowhards have been blowing up the blogosphere with some bullshit about how Obama removed the flag from the tail of the plane he is leasing for his campaign. Why did he have such a thing get done? Is it because he is dangerous and not patriotic and not in love with his country?


The plane is being leased from a company called "North American Airlines" and the "flag" on the tail of the plane that was removed is THE COMPANY'S REGISTERED TRADEMARK. So, the reason the "flag" design was removed is because it is THE REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF NORTH AMERICAN AIRLINES! The flag next to the plane's tail number is still there in plain sight....

So all you close minded small thinking conservative assholes can shut the fuck up!!

Oh, speaking of campaign aircraft, I don't even see a flag or anything resembling a flag or the colors that are on the U.S. Flag ANYWHERE on McCain's plane!!!???
And since when are an aqua-ish blue, gold, and white patriotic colors? Ah... McCain must be colorblind in his old age.

Man Calls 911 To Report Slot Machine Stole His Money

FLORIDA IS ON A ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A second Hillsborough County man has been arrested on charges of making false 911 calls in as many days. An arrest report says 47-year-old Carlos Gutierrez was at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino early Monday and called 911 to say the slot machine stole his money. The report says Gutierrez left the casino to place a second 911 call to say the same thing. He was arrested and charged with making a false 911 call. He's being held with no bail set.

On Sunday another man was arrested after calling 911 five times during an argument with his brother. He demanded that dispatchers send deputies to help sort things out. And in northern Florida last week, a Jacksonville man called 911 to complain that a Subway left the sauce off a spicy Italian sandwich.

Chinese Restaurant Used An Online Language Translator to Name Restaurant and.....

not sure what kind of dishes they serve up at "Translate Server Error" - but I have no doubt it would be a smorgasboard of "404 page not found" fried rice, and "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" with Honey Soy Chicken.

'Tween' Gangs: America's Next Epidemic

Groups of young people are vandalizing, intimidating, terrorizing and assaulting neighbors. Even worse, they're only 10 to 14 years old. It's a growing summer problem in some Minneapolis neighborhoods.

The 8th Street Block Club spent years creating and expanding their "Peaceful Patch Garden."

"The most important thing I think is it's really brought us together, these four blocks," said club leader Marge Magnuson.

A gang of mostly young teen girls tore the neighborhood apart.

"They would just operate in marauding groups I guess I would say, of between 10 and 15," said Bill Bryant, another club leader.

"They'd be walking down the sidewalk, and if you were coming their way, you could not, they would, you had to step aside," said Magnuson.

They used the same intimidation tactics on drivers in the street. The garden became anything but peaceful.

"(They) would vandalize and we'd try to put things back and then it would, (a) couple days later maybe the same thing would happen again," he added.

Then they started assaulting people, including Magnuson.

The block club enlisted help from police, parole officers, social service leaders and others to help combat the problem. Its behavior police have battled before.

"I think you'd find a lot of kids that aren't getting any supervision at home that have got a lot of problems of their own, and they join up with other kids," explained Don Greeley, a Community Crime Prevention Specialist.

The neighborhood refused to let the gangs take over, and it steered them in a more positive direction.

"We actually were able to have the kids interacting with the residents and the community in a respectful way," said V.J. Smith, a founder of Mad Dads.

Last year the 11th Street Block Club was so discouraged about the young teen gang violence and destruction in their neighborhood, they skipped it. This year it will proceed as planned to celebrate their accomplishments.


91 Nørwegiån råcing spectåtørs struck by lightning. Øuch

OSLO, Norway (AP) — A lightning bolt struck 91 auto racing fans at a racetrack in Norway Sunday, and 45 people were taken to hospital with minor burns, police said.

"No one was seriously injured," police officer Hans Eng told the Associated Press. "But some of them will stay in the hospital for observation."

The lightning hit a hill where spectators at the rallycross were sitting. Rallycross is a form of sprint-style automobile racing on a closed circuit.

The race, a national championship, was called off after the incident.

Eng said 16 ambulances and three medical helicopters were brought to the scene at Flisa, about eight kilometers from the Swedish border.

The injured fans were taken to four different hospitals.

"I've never seen anything like it; spectators fell off their seats," a witness, Roar Bringaker, was quoted as saying on the Web site of Norwegian paper Verdens Gang. "People got scared and ran. It was chaotic."

Even Wiger, another spectator, went to the racetrack with his 14-year-old son and some friends.

"It was a raining and suddenly the lightning hit the stand," he was quoted as saying to the Norwegian News Agency NTB. "We all tried to get down from the hill. Many screamed and cried. The situation was dramatic. I've never experienced anything similar."

The thunderstorm knocked out telephone service in the area, police said.


Police: Man Calls 911 Over Incorrect Sandwich


JACKSONVILLE, FL -- An unhappy Subway customer called 911 not once, but twice to complain to police that his sandwich was not made to his liking.

Reginald Peterson called the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office in hopes that police could have his sandwich made to his satisfaction.

A short time later, Peterson contacted JSO again to complain that police still had not shown up.

When police did arrive Peterson told the officer he had ordered two sandwiches, checked out, and then walked outside to find the subs did not have "everything" he ordered.

He told police he became "very upset" and "belligerent" because the employee making the sandwich was not doing it correctly.

Witnesses inside the store say Peterson eventually started screaming at everyone inside. When Peterson went outside to call police. Employees closed the store and locked the door to keep him from returning.

According to the report, the officer tried to calm Petterson and explain to him the proper way to use 911, but he would not cooperate.

Peterson was arrested and at his request the sandwiches were thrown away.
