I have an App that scans my beers that I have, so I know what is in my inventory. Next time I'm in Beertopia I'll see if they have something similar :cheers:

Serious backlash brews against Samsung's insane smart refrigerator

KETV wrote:The "Family Hub refrigerator" has a 21.5-inch HD screen, and you can use it to browse the Web, write notes, play music and even shop. The fridge comes equipped with Internet-connected cameras that can let you view what's inside without opening the doors.

Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Plot 555
Misau Street
PMB 437
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA

Dear Mr. Sir,

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.

Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-2220 only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager

KETV is reporting that she has been booked 17 times since 2002. They has all 17 booking photos on their news cast. This was the 6PM newscast on 2/22

On another note her attorney James Martin Davis had a sound "bit" make the cut for the newscast. He said this or something very close to it when talking about how this might impact here deal on the zoo case. "All I can say is that she's got a lot in common with that tiger at the zoo. They are both behind bars and they both apparently like to bit."

Obviously he know she's crazy and throwing her under the bus wouldn't make it any worse. He probably worked hard for a plea bargain in the first case and this is how she re-pays him.

Gotta love PC culture...

Students offered counselling over small sombrero hats at tequila-themed birthday party
The college has even offered offended students “safe spaces” and counselling to help them deal with the emotional impact of the miniature sombrero party.

The manager has to feel stupid for falling for this:

Prank caller leads Coon Rapids Burger King employees to smash their windows

A caller who said he was a fire department official said there was a gas leak in the building and that unless the windows were smashed, a gas buildup in the building would cause an explosion. So the manager and Burger King employees evacuated the restaurant and started smashing ground floor windows. Every single one.

May want to check the chimney if you are vising in Carroll Iowa.

The guy in the chimney was naked too.



http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/firefig ... 6ea26.html


.......................It was her turn eight hours later, though now it was a man yelling for help from the Carroll Redemption Center's chimney.
Carrie Sapp told the Daily Times Herald on Wednesday that the man explained, "I was playing hide-and-seek with my cousin. ... Don't call the cops!"
But they were called, as were firefighters, who eventually hammered a hole in the chimney before getting 29-year-old Jordan Kajewski out of it.......................

That was my thought too. Sadly, the DOT there in North Carolina just turned on better lights and signage to stop overheight vehicles from hitting the bridge.

They should put up a HUGE video screen on a billboard nearby showing a continuous loop of those videos. Either that, or re-construct the darn road further under the bridge to provide more clearance.

The bast part of the story:

The man’s wife told police that as she and her husband were watching TV, he noted that he was getting “bad anxiety.” She tried to call their children to ask them what was in the brownies but couldn’t reach them.


Would that be the first thing to come to mind to ask for you?

Personally, I found this bit from the story the most hilarious:

Paramedics called to the scene who checked the man found his vital signs to be normal. But they noted he was displaying odd behavior — crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities and calling the family cat “a |expletive|.”
