Hands up who friggin cares if Butch Cassidy survived the 1908 shootout in Bolivia and actually returned to the US to live out his final years? Hmm, thought so! Anywho, a Utah book collector does and he believes that William T Phillips, a machinist from Spokane, was in fact Butch! Seriously! If you give two hoots you can read the rest of the story here otherwise carry on as you were!

And the lesson today is how to die! OK, one more time people, do not..and I repeat..do not attempt to use a power tool to get paint out of a spray can! A Spokane man has some serious burns to his face after the cordless drill he was using to put a hole in the can set off a spark.You see, pressurized content, flammable paint, spark…boom!
Christopher Wilson was at Ziggy’s home improvement store in Spokane when he accidentally lost his bag of methamphetamines (silly billy). It wasn’t long before a staff member found the bag lying near the checkout and rang the police. But wait, what’s this? Surely that couldn’t be Mr Wilson reentering the store? Oh yeah, Mr Wilson, on discovering his stash was missing, returned to the store and left his name and number just in case it was found. Hmm, that saved the police a hell of a lot of effort.
