    Another Human Foot Washes Ashore in Canada. That Makes 13
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/12/w...imes&smtyp=cur

    In any other part of the world, a sneaker with a human foot washing ashore might be a terrifying discovery, enough to frighten residents and stir fears of a gruesome murder or a serial killer on the loose.
    But not in British Columbia, where these discoveries have become so common that they are tracked.
    It was the 13th foot to wash ashore since 2007.

    “At the beginning, it seemed more strange, but now it happens so many times,”

    Another reason not to live with an HOA

    HOA garage door policy draws Auburn residents' ire

    A Placer County homeowners association is mandating that its residents keep their garage doors open throughout the day during the workweek.

    The policy, according to a notice taped to residents' doors, states that people who live in Auburn Greens face "an immediate hearing notice and subjected to a $200 fine" if they do not comply. The notice states the policy was enacted in October.

    According to board member Norma Brewer, the policy was put in place after it was discovered that a resident was allowing people to live in his or her garage. She would not comment beyond that.

    Safe bet the real reason he offed himself had a great deal more to do with neurotransmitters than it did with zoning
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Not to speak ill of the dead, but I was thinking the same. It may have been the spark. However, there had to be underlying issues that served as the dry tinder for the fire that consumed him.

    Probably not a good idea, Booger.

    A mistrial has been declared after a man accused of leaving an injured family friend for dead in the shallows of North Bay admitted to smoking marijuana before showing up to trial.

    Trumps asked to borrow Van Gogh for White House. The Guggenheim offered gold toilet instead

    The emailed response from the Guggenheim's chief curator to the White House was polite but firm: the museum could not accommodate a request to "borrow" a painting by Vincent Van Gogh for President Donald and Melania Trump's private living quarters.

    Instead, wrote the curator, Nancy Spector, another piece was available, one that was nothing like "Landscape with Snow," the lovely 1888 Van Gogh rendering of a man in a black hat walking along a path in Arles with his dog.

    The curator's alternative: an 18-karat, fully functioning, solid gold toilet - an interactive work entitled "America" that critics have described as pointed satire aimed at the excess of wealth in this country.

    Dead goose knocks out hunter on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.6c9000a73daf

    One of the geese fell and hit, knocking him out and causing head and facial injuries, according to a spokeswoman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police.
    The dead goose also knocked out two of his teeth.
    "He's lucky," she added. “Those birds weigh a lot, and falling back down to earth, they’re going to pick up a lot of speed. It’s gonna leave a mark.”

    At least the headline didn't begin with "A Florida Man..."

    Kansas man arrested for allegedly trying to have sex with car

    Police responding to an atypical 911 call in Newton, Kan., Tuesday found a naked, intoxicated and apparently amorous man under an automobile.

    "We were called to the 1200 block of East Broadway to a report of a naked male underneath a car," Newton police Lt. Scott Powell told the Newton Kansan. ".. He was attempting to stick his penis into the tailpipe of the vehicle."
