You'd hope when it gets in front of the judge that judge tosses it out and assesses court fees and costs to the dick cop who wrote him up.

...may as well wish for a meelyun dollars while I'm at it.

Yep - it's that time of year again, those bastards are the reason I hate country roads. Almost smoked one before coming back on a 96 when I was in the Corps. As fast as I was going, my little Nissan Pulsar would have been totalled.

At least most of the deer in this slide-show were courteous enough to cross at the signs.

MARQUETTE, Mich. — Four years of litigation has ended with a one-day trial: A jury says Michigan prison officials are not responsible for an inmate’s dental problems.

Jurors returned the verdict Monday in Marquette federal court. Jerry Flanory claims he lost a tooth in 2006 and suffered gum disease because he was denied toothpaste as a punishment for not attending prison classes.

But the Corrections Department had evidence that Flanory’s bad tooth wasn’t a new problem. He had only five of the typical 32 teeth when he entered prison. Officials said he had access to toothpaste.

Flanory’s lawsuit alleging cruel punishment was dismissed as frivolous in 2009, but an appeals court reinstated it. The 60-year-old from Flint served as his own attorney

Darth Vader's wife punched in the face
Really stupid story and waste of time

in short...

Quote

Darth Vader’s wife was reportedly punched in the face by an Englishman during a heated domestic dispute, according to The Huffington Post. Before you start pouring over your Blu-ray box set in a desperate search for this missing piece the Star Wars puzzle, it’s worth noting that this particular incident took place on the other side of the silver screen.

A Gulf returnee allegedly sold his wife for Rs 6,000 to a broker in Korutla mandal of Karimnagar district. The incident came to light here on Monday after police booked a case against the accused following a complaint from the victim's son.

The accused, Medula Rajender, 42, of Malyala village in Chandurthi mandal sold his wife Medula Ammayi, 36, to the broker on October 13 to meet his liquor expenses. Daily wager Rajender found it hard to buy liquor and struck a deal with the broker to sell his wife.

On Saturday morning, he forcibly took her to Chandurthi where he left her at the bus station and told her to wait for the broker. "I was shocked when he told me that he had sold me for Rs 6,000 to the broker in Kortula. He even bought a bus ticket to Korutla for me and left the place," recalled a crying Ammayi.

I think we need braille deer crossing signs so blind deer know where to cross and blind drivers can be aware of the crossing area. Just sayin'.

Apparently, that's her there on the right.

Insofar as the deer crossing story goes...I'm exceptionally skeptical. That's such an old joke that I find it tough to believe that it actually garners believers when done on the air. It sounds genuine enough but I dunno. I know that level of stupid is out there but that's one of your older urban legend type stories come to life.

Thank you Indiana for this one... middle schoolers getting all worked up for a partially bare chest with nary a side boob to be seen. Troutt - nice attempted back peddle there champ, but I am guessing it was all Beavis and Butthead chuckles... oh and educate your momma on what "nude" means.

Quote

Some students at Highland Middle School in Anderson have been suspended after their teacher accidentally synced a topless picture of herself to a school-issued iPad.

Joshua Troutt, 13, said he and three other students were playing a game on the iPad in class when one of the students pressed a button and a photograph of the teacher's partially bare chest was revealed.

"It's not our fault that she had the photo on there," Troutt said. "We couldn't do anything not to look at it, if it just popped up when he pressed the button. It was her fault that she had the photo on there. Her iPhone synched to it. She had to have pressed something to make all of her photos synch on there."

Anderson police said Thursday that investigators determined that the picture was "from the neck down, with partial exposure."

"Since the material was not pornographic in nature and no other criminal violation could be gleaned from the evidence as presented, the matter was turned over to the school and the police investigation closed," Detective Joel Sandefur said in a statement.
...
Troutt's mother said she doesn't believe that's fair.

"In all reality, you'd think (the teacher would) be fired. That's a nude picture in the school that the students saw," Nicole Troutt said. "(My son) didn't even touch the iPad. Another kid pulled up the picture on the iPad. He never touched it, period."

In other news, the iPad in question was missing for a brief fifteen minute time span during creepy vice principal "McComb-Over"'s afternoon lunch.

Screw fifty shades of gray - our local news paper had some funny ass quotes about setting up two leopards to get their groove on. It almost reads like a damn Chris Mintz 'direct to Comedy Central' movie.

Quote

Because the Amur leopard is so endangered, breeding them in captivity is imperative, said Dan Cassidy, general curator at the Omaha zoo. But Usurri spurned Natalia, the zoo's 11-year-old female leopard.

“In fact, he tried to kill her,” Cassidy said.
...
Meanwhile, the Henry Doorly Zoo, which has a strong and historic background in breeding big cats, wanted to breed Natalia before she got too old.

The zoo found a potential mate at the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, Ind. Its male leopard, Preston, is father material; he was bred successfully in 2007 and 2010.
...
If the pair take to each other, they will be allowed to mate when Natalia goes into heat.
“Once they start, they can breed 20 or 30 times a day,” Cassidy said. “It's not for the faint of heart. It's straightforward stuff, but there can be a lot of noise.”

After breeding, they will be separated again, Cassidy said. “Males and females rarely stay together.”
...
Because of its widely known success in breeding big cats, the Henry Doorly Zoo is often consulted by other institutions.

“Fewer and fewer people have the knack” for successful breeding, Cassidy said.
