Ok, it's not weird weird, but it's kinda unexpected:

Wildfire ash can bind to, trap mercury

That's good news. Is good news legal, I thought good news had been outlawed?

Well, it all depends completely on how far the kid has to ride the bus to school. What the bus is worth, what it weighs, the ethnicity of the bus-builders father...It's a totally random variable.

1- Japan is such a strange backward country...
Quote:
A Japanese court has extended for another 10 days the detention of ousted Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn, who faces more charges of financial misdeeds.
Can you imagine locking this man up like a commoner instead of giving him a billion dollar golden parachute. How barbaric.

2- Fortunately for the 1/3rd...
Quote:
A government-appointed monitor reported that some 16.7 million defective Takata airbag inflators have not yet been replaced, around one-third of the recalled units.
At least that 1/3rd is not endangered by an exploding package of talcum powder which might give them Ovarian cancer.

3- Recall shmeecall...
Quote:
Ford is recalling nearly 900,000 F-series pickups from the 2015 through 2019 model years to correct a defect in the engine block heater that could result in a fire.
A fire? Well duh, doesn't that heat the engine? Buncha whining maggots.

4- Big tax write off for VW...
Quote:
Volkswagen’s cleanup efforts from the diesel emissions cheating scandal will cost the automaker around $6.25 billion in 2018 and another $2 million in 2019.
Taxpayers come out on the short end again, I see unfilled potholes.

Armed man surrenders following 10-hour siege after negotiator sings White Christmas to him

Wait, what?

by Jane Dalton of The Independent via YahooNews:

Quote:
A man with a rifle who held off a team of armed police in a 10-hour siege gave himself up after an officer sang a Christmas carol to him.

Nathaniel Lewis, 34, allegedly started shooting at the specialised police who rushed to his home in Pennsylvania, US, when a relative reported him acting erratically on Christmas evening.

The shots hit a police vehicle, a house and another vehicle, and the Swat (Special Weapons and Tactics) team returned fire.

Chester County district attorney Thomas Hogan wrote on Facebook: “Over a long and cold night, they kept negotiating with the man, who eventually started shooting at the police and around the neighbourhood.”

During the wait, Mr Hogan took home-made biscuits to the Swat team, and the stand-off dragged on until eventually a negotiator got Lewis to surrender by singing the Bing Crosby festive classic White Christmas.

Lewis was taken into custody and reportedly charged with multiple counts of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and other offences.

Police did not say whether he surrendered because he liked the song or disliked the officer's rendition of it.

Australian man screaming at spider 'why don't you die?' triggers full police response

Quote:
Multiple officers arrive at home to find Perth man with ‘serious fear’ of arachnids ‘trying to kill a spider’

Police in Western Australia have confirmed they sent multiple officers to an emergency call that turned out to be a screaming man with a “serious fear” of spiders.

A concerned passerby was walking outside a house in suburban Perth when they heard a toddler screaming and a man repeatedly shouting “Why don’t you die?”

After they called triple zero, officers arrived to find a man “trying to kill a spider”, who apologised for having an extreme fear of the arachnid.
Given that anything in Australia which isn't woolly is hell bent on visiting death upon the unwary, it's probably a reasonable stance to take.

That happened in a different Aussie city several months earlier. Same situation, spider-freaked fella screaming for it to die.

Given that it's Oz, I woulda just ran away. Screaming.

We know from Arachnophobia that only man in this world has and can justify no fear of spiders. John Goodman.

Most people don't know spider can fly, they've been found 2.5 miles up in the air, and 1,000 miles out to sea.
