Re: Unusual News of the Day

Great obituary. Here in its entirety then the link.

He assures us he is gone
William Ziegler escaped this mortal realm on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the age of 69.
We think he did it on purpose to avoid having to make a decision in the pending presidential election.
He leaves behind four children, five grandchildren, and the potted meat industry, for which he was an unofficial spokesman until dietary restrictions forced him to eat real food.
William volunteered for service in the United States Navy at the ripe old age of 17 and immediately realized he didn’t much enjoy being bossed around. He only stuck it out for one war.
Before his discharge, however, the government exchanged numerous ribbons and medals for various honorable acts.
Upon his return to the City of New Orleans in 1971, thinking it best to keep an eye on him, government officials hired William as a fireman.
After twenty-five years, he suddenly realized that running away from burning buildings made more sense than running toward them. He promptly retired.
Looking back, William stated that there was no better group of morons and mental patients than those he had the privilege of serving with (except Bob, he never liked you, Bob).
Following his wishes, there will not be a service, but wellwishers are encouraged to write a note of farewell on a Schaefer Light beer can and drink it in his honor.
He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but he wanted you to know that if he owes you a beer, and if you can find him in Heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another.
He can likely be found forwarding tasteless internet jokes (check your spam folder, but don’t open these at work). Expect to find an alcoholic dog named Judge passed out at his feet. Unlike previous times, this is not a ploy to avoid creditors or old girlfriends. He assures us that he is gone. He will be greatly missed.

Every now and then, a dead man with a sense of humor reaches from beyond the grave to gift us with a chuckle or two.

Something for those who suspect that Cern is opening interdimensional doorways, a sacrifice to the Old Ones?

Re: Unusual News of the Day

Another bit of interesting news today:

Police Shoot Mannequin 67 Times After Mistaking it for Gunman

From the article:

“The individual in question was dressed in a tan hoodie-style sweatshirt and appeared to be naked from the waist down,” Major Howard Colvin told the Scranton Times.

“Our officers attempted to communicate with the suspect in an effort to resolve the matter peacefully,” Major Colvin explained.

“When the suspect failed to comply with the officers demands, they responded with appropriate force given the perceived nature of the threat,” Colvin told reporters.

“When the individual didn’t immediately respond to having been shot, officers realized something wasn’t right,” Colvin said.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

I was skeptical at first, but now I see he's offering individual chapters at a mere 10 grand each. Very tempting. That way you only have to spend around 20 or 30 thousand dollars, tops, to see whether he can sustain that level of prose beyond the opening section, instead of shelling out for the whole thing upfront.
