While I'm not a fan of sagging pants with drawers showing, this is what legislation comes up with? I suppose all the roads are in tip-top shape, jobs are at a premium and crime is non-existent in this town.

Baggy Pants Law Will Fine Offenders In Louisiana Town



Quote:
Louisiana's Terrebonne Parish passed an ordinance this week to ban saggy pants in public. Their council voted 8-1 to pass the proposition despite divergent opinions in the community.

Offenders will be fined $50 for the first offense, $100 for the second offense and $100 plus 16 hours of mandatory community service for the third offense. A judge will determine the punishment for any further violations.

No, don't you see? This will raise money to address those other problems!

I imagine the guys who get these tickets probably have no jobs and will have a hard time paying these tickets.

Shhhh!! You are being too logical.

Though there was a guy here at my work who operated an offset press who wore his pants like that. I found that very puzzling. I mean, I would have thought that even most people that did that would pull up their pants while on the job, if they had one.

That's awesome that there are still people alive who were born in the 1800s. To think of all the stories he could tell you (if he's still with it).

He has to periodically deflate and re-inflate to maintain his longevity.

Yeah, it is pretty mind boggling. I did a search for some pictures and chose that one because it looked like he's almost saying "hi, look at me, I'm 116!"

You can't make this crap up! It would have been great if there was a camera to showcase this idiot spending that much money to win an Xbox.

I can't imagine wasting more than a few bucks BUT you'd think the clear cut off point would be when you spend more than the system is worth.

Giant rubber duck makes splash in Hong Kong harbor




Quote:
HONG KONG (AP) A six-story-high rubber duck is making a big splash in Hong Kong.
Crowds watched the inflatable duck being pulled by tugboat across Victoria Harbor in front of Hong Kong's signature skyscraper skyline.
Tourist Zhang Wenjin from Shanghai says it's a big surprise. "This is huge. My daughter liked it when she saw it just now. Because kids like cute stuff."
Yu Kwan Yee of Hong Kong was part of the crowd. "The duckie is swimming," the 2 -year-old said.
Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created the bright-yellow duck, and it was built of PVC material in New Zealand by a company specializing in large sails.
Hofman was on hand as the duck arrived and said it later had to be deflated because high winds and waves created a "big challenge."
The duck has been transported around the world since 2007, bringing a message of peace and harmony. It has previously been to Osaka, Japan, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Auckland, New Zealand, and Amsterdam.
It will be anchored at a Hong Kong terminal for display until June.

Apiphobics may want to skip this one:

Utah cabin had uninvited guests _ 60,000 bees



Quote:
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) It was the biggest beehive that that Ogden beekeeper Vic Bachman has ever removed a dozen feet long, packed inside the eaves of a cabin in Ogden Valley.
"We figure we got 15 pounds of bees out of there," said Bachman, who said that converts to about 60,000 honeybees.
Bachman was called to the A-frame cabin last month in Eden, Utah. Taking apart a panel that hid roof rafters, he had no idea he would find honeycombs packed 12 feet long, 4 feet wide and 16 inches deep.
The honeybees had been making the enclosed cavity their home since 1996, hardly bothering the homeowners. The cabin was rarely used, but when the owners needed to occupy it while building another home nearby, they decided the beehive wasn't safe for their two children. A few bees had found their way inside the house, and the hive was just outside a window of a children's bedroom.
They didn't want to kill the honeybees, a species in decline that does yeoman's work pollinating flowers and crops.
So they called Bachman, owner of Deseret Hive Supply, a hobbyist store that can't keep up with demand for honeybees. Bachman used a vacuum cleaner to suck the bees into a cage.
"It doesn't hurt them," he said.
The job took six hours. At $100 an hour, the bill came to $600.
"The bees were expensive," said Paul Bertagnolli, the cabin owner. He was satisfied with the job.
Utah calls itself the Beehive state, a symbol of industriousness. Whether this was Utah's largest beehive is unknown, but Bachman said it would rank high.
"It's the biggest one I've ever seen," he said. "I've never seen one that big."
He used smoke to pacify the bees, but Bachman said honeybees are gentle creatures unlike predatory yellow jackets or hornets, which attack, rip apart and eat honeybees, he said.
"They just want to collect nectar and come back to the hive," he said. "Most people never get stung by honeybees it's a yellow jacket."
Bachman reassembled the hive in a yard of his North Ogden home, while saving some of the honeycomb for candles and lotions at his store. He left other honeycombs for the cabin owners to chew on.
"We caught the queen and were able to keep her," Bachman said. "The hive is in my backyard right now and is doing well."
