So a few days ago, I saw Kevin Rathbun turning left on to North Druid from Briarcliff in his Range Rover with his whites hanging in the backseat. He’s a pretty unique-looking dude and I remember him from the time he beat Bobby Flay in Battle Elk. Hopefully this is a culinary good omen for the week. But that’s beside the point.
On to the newspile:
- The state of Oregon is outlawing bukkake. WTF? And here I thought Oregon was pretty liberal. Our current assault laws cover spitting on somoene else, so why is there a need for a special law for this? (via BoingBoing)
- I’ve been somewhat upset lately because my 3-yr old incandescent lightbulbs are all outlasting the CFL’s I spent so much money on last year. The CFLs were more expensive, noisier, and worst of all, the ones I have seem to have a shorter life than incandescents. At least this Slashdot post makes me feel like I’m not alone.
- A container loaded with 58,000 pounds of ham was stolen from a shipping yard in Puerto Rico.
Yeah I couldn’t make that stuff up.
