WTF? If he had already cleared security but they had a problem with his bag, why would pat him down instead of the bag?
I'm glad I don't fly anymore, I'd never make it on the plane.

West Ham fans name post man of the match in victory over Hull

Quote:
West Ham fans had no doubt about the star of Saturday's 1-0 win over Hull - voting the post as man of the match.

Hull hit the frame of the goal three times before Mark Noble's disputed penalty sealed the points for West Ham.

I've heard it said that Offense wins games, Defense wins championships. Well, here's some more weird "football" news as proof of that aphorism:

Seattle Sounders FC win MLS Championship 2016 match without recording even a single shot on goal during regulation time and overtime.

Ikea says illegal teenage sleepovers must end

Quote:
Ikea is urging teenagers to stop creeping into its stores and having illegal sleepovers.

About 10 "non-sponsored sleepovers" have been logged across the world by the Swedish furniture giant this year.

In the past, people have hidden themselves in stores in the US, Canada, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Japan, Australia and Poland.

Most recently, two 14-year-old girls were caught after spending the night at the branch in Jonkoping in Sweden.
Problem is, all the kitchen stuff will be packed away, so no meatballs when you get hungry.

Fools!

Now it's going to go viral with copycats and they are going to have to hire teams of employees to open each cabinet in every store and make sure it's empty.

Which is what they want, for teenagers to believe IKEA is cool and spend lots of harmless, playful time in there--"OMG guys, you know what? This bed is pretty comfortable!"--as if it were their own idea.

Except when a bunch of hooligans eventually get high in there and trash the place, they'll wish they hadn't tried to turn this into a secret marketing campaign.

Nah, motion detectors and or sniffing dogs, followed up with unrelenting pressing of charges and paying off local prosecutors to take the families to the mat would get the word out quick enough that it is a bad ikea to sleep at Ikea.

see what I did there?

Its Trump's fault. He's creating jobs all over the world!

Somewhere we discussed the plastic rice, I don't remember where, and I said they confiscated several tons in Africa. Here's the result...

Quote:
The artificial food products are popular with restaurants to display menu choices as they always look fresh and never rot. Artificial rice is made of PVC, a white, brittle plastic.

The product is designed to be used at room temperature, so degradation could start from 70 degrees Celsius. “They shouldn’t put it on the stove. It isn’t food,” Zhou said.

He said he was puzzled why anyone would smuggle artificial rice to sell as real in Africa, as the product his company sold cost more than 70 yuan for 1kg, or 10 times the price of real rice in China. In Africa the cost would increase due to shipping and other costs.
I suspect it was stolen somewhere along the way.

At least it will create employment opportunities, right? Although "Nighttime anti-teenager Ikea patrol" might look weird on a resume.
