Hello Health and Safety, banning paddling pools because they are a “fire risk” is taking the whole Nanny State thing a little too far don’t you think? While officials are banning the 4 kidddie pools at a block of flats because the housing association in Romford say it might get in the way of engines, firefighters are branding the whole thing ridiculous. Hmm, yeah because with their trucks, they’ll simply drive over the little friggin snowflakes if they get in the way.Kidding people. They say the water would come in handy if a fire broke out.

OK here’s the thing drunk man in Ohio, don’t be pushing no baby stroller with kiddies in it or you’ll get friggin arrested. Steven Melendez was pretty pissed when he placed his little snowflakes in a stroller and took them with him to pick up a money order. I don’t know how drunk he was but it must have been pretty damn noticeable because some nosy concerned citizen rang 911. That’s a child endangering and public intoxication right there.
Remember Rick Norsigian? You know , the dude who bought a load of glass negs at a garage sale for $40, had them analyzed by experts , was told they were taken by Ansel Adams and were estimated to be worth about $200 million. Yeah, him. Well, funny thing about all that. During all the kerfuffle in the media, Mariam Walton happened to notice one of the images looked suspiciously like her Uncle Earl’s . Dagnabbit. Oh boy, her uncle Earl Brooks was also a snap happy photographer and spent many a day at the Yosemite National Park during the 1920′s. Mariam has compared both photos and just for a few different cloud formations they look pretty close to being identical. Hmm, oh well look on the bright side, despite Mr Norsigian spending a shit load of money to discover his negs are worth Jack, Mariam can now live in the knowledge Uncle Earl’s images were in the same class as Ansel Adams even if for just a brief moment in time.Hmm, I guess those negs are going back under the pool table hey Rick?
Psst Thanks Duncan for the hands up.
OK here’s the thing Mr Judge, if you discover that a prisoner who has been locked up for 27 years is friggin innocent, let him go! Michael Green has been told he will have to wait an extra day before being released because the Dallas court wants to give him time to compose himself so he doesn’t freak out. WTF! Green was sentenced to 75 years jail for a 1983 kidnapping and sexual assault of a woman when he was 18 years old but recent DNA testing proved it wasn’t him. He’s angry, his family are angry and he just wants out!
Psst Irony alert….Green would have been up for parole in October anyways.
2nd Psst Due to the the statute of limitations the 4 other suspects won’t be charged with the crime.
Picture this.Your 10 year old son visits his stepfather in Oregon. While there he gets picked up by police for not wearing a helmet while riding a bike. Next thing you know your son has been thrown into foster care because they don’t recognize his stepfather as a legal guardian. So for the next two years you fight the legal system to get your son back to Calgary. Finally he returns and a month later you discover the Oregon government are now suing you for the cost of looking after your kid. Hell yes it includes child support and medical costs.
Whoopsie. When Japanese officials went to congrats Sogen kato the oldest man in Tokyo on his 111th birthday, they found a mummified body lying in bed. OMG and whats more, he’d been dead for 30 years. Hmm, seems his family had been covering up the fact that he had keeled so they could collect his pension payments. The relis had said Kato had confined himself to his room for 30 odd years after becoming a “living Buddha” but in reality he was dead in bed with his undies and pjs on.
