crash landing

This guy needs to start playing the lottery…

Almost immediately after takeoff, the right engine shut down. Robertson, 34, of Wilton Manors, turned off the failed engine to stave off a rapid descent, and steered the plane to a grassy spot just off Interstate 95.

Amsterdam dims its red lights

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Off to kayak to check flights!

The plan is to convert the buildings in which prostitutes pose in the windows into apartments and more conventional commercial space.

And while they are at it…

[Mayor Cohen] also sees the buyout as a chance to begin clearing out the cannabis-selling coffee shops

If these changes go through as planned, about 5-10 years down the road, Amsterdam will likely have surpassed their current tourism dollars as a wealthier crowd becomes the norm. A bit like present-day Fort Lauderdale compared with the Spring Break/MTV crowd that was stomped out in the late 80s.

Cocaine, a taser and a live chicken

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Sounds like a fun night. God bless the Sheboygan Police Department.

A live chicken found in the man’s trunk when police searched the vehicle was taken to the Sheboygan County Humane Society. The man told police he got the chicken from a local fast-food restaurant.

LucasArts to Unleash the Force on the Wii in Spring 2008

The Wiimote will act as your lightsaber while the nunchuk will control force powers, possibly causing your head to explode from excitement. Look for a broomstick attachment for recreating Star Wars Kid moments.

Strap on your Yoda backpacks and book a flight to the Dagobah system, you may have to prove yourself at the next nerd convention:

The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master.

Wasn’t he a Dick Tracey character?

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Yes, there’s a photo of ‘No Nose’ on the link.

LAKE ELSINORE, CA – Three men have been charged with kidnapping and assault in a case worthy of a cult movie plot.

A 48-year-old Lake Elsinore woman has accused the three of abducting, beating and dumping her in Mexico late last month.

The accused are the 45-year-old man the woman had been living with and two of his friends, said Detective Joe Greco of the Lake Elsinore Police Department. Greco said one of the men is nicknamed “No Nose” because his face is disfigured from a gunshot wound suffered years ago.
Hours after being left battered and bruised, the woman reappeared on her boyfriend’s Lake Elsinore doorstep demanding that he pay her $300 fare for a cab ride from the U.S-Mexico border.

“It’s like something out of a Quentin Tarantino movie,” Greco said. “The whole thing is just bizarre.”

Messiah

Rather bold name for any brand.

Pretty cool looking, but the last thing my coffee table needs is another remote cluttering it. But it glows?! I’ll stick with using the PS3 controller.

Video killed the ebay scammer

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

vzaar

Following a decision by eBay to permit video listings on its UK site, Vzaar has launched its service that allows users to insert videos into their eBay listings.

A fine idea that should already be in place in the US version. It’s easy to hide things in photos with the right lighting and angles. I just got a painting delivered that was purchased from ebay. It had a sizable scratch. Looking back at the listing it wasn’t in the description (dishonest in it’s own right) and barely there in the photos.

As Prostitutes Turn to Craigslist, Law Takes Notice

The police say that Craigslist has changed prostitution’s patterns, with people roaming the country, setting up shop for a week or two in hotels — often near airports — where they use laptop computers and cellphones to arrange encounters for hundreds of dollars, then moving on to their next location.

What made milwaukee famous

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007

I was just thinking about how I miss my homeland….

Waukesha – The worst part wasn’t that Mark Stahnke woke up Monday morning in the patio chair of some neighbor he didn’t know.

Or that his pants were missing.

The worst part was the contents of his missing pants: a cashier’s check for $41,093, which he meant to give to his son, and several hundred dollars in cash that he had gotten from the bank.

Stahnke still doesn’t know what happened between the time he left a bar Sunday night and the time he woke up in some stranger’s backyard Monday morning, but thanks to an honest citizen who found the missing pants and returned all the contents to the local authorities, Stahnke retrieved his valuables Friday from the Waukesha Police Department.

He got the pants back, too.
