Man stealing gas while smoking a cigarette lights himself on fire

A man may go down in history as one of the stupidest thieves ever, although there are a lot of competitors out there for the title.

 A suspect lit himself on fire while trying to steal gasoline in Portland Sunday, police said.

It was  just after 11:001 a.m. when 62-year-old Harry Frederick Suniville stole a partially-filled gas can from a truck and began pouring the gas into his vehicle while smoking a cigarette, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland police.




The gasoline then ignited, which then burnt Suniville’s socks and pants, and singed his eyebrows and hair, Simpson said.

Firefighters came on the scene and extinguished the fire. Paramedics treated Suniville before he was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, reckless burning, and theft, Simpson said.

Suniville’s vehicle was damaged and towed from the scene, according to KGW.

Donations pour in, Blind man gets to keep Hero Dog who saved his life

Donations are pouring in to help a blind man keep his service dog. Cecil Williams was walking on the subway platform in New York with his service dog, Orlando when witnesses saw him slipping and falling onto the tracks.

Williams was saved by the quick actions of his service dog and an MTA employee who yelled for them to put their heads down, just before the subway train ran over the pair, leaving them with only a scratch.



Then it was revealed that Williams cannot keep his service dog because his insurance will not provide coverage. Good citizens intervened with their wallets.

Merry Christmas Mr. Williams and Orlando.

Pope replaces Conservative U.S. Cardinal on influential Vatican Committee, expect right wing heads to explode

In a move signaling more inclusivity with the Church,  Pope Francis moved on Monday against a conservative American cardinal who has been an outspoken critic of abortion and same-sex marriage, by replacing him on a powerful Vatican committee with another American who is less identified with the culture wars within the Roman Catholic Church.



Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington was named by Pope Francis to the Vatican committee that selects new bishops. The Pope removed Cardinal Raymond L. Burke, a favorite among Conservatives, from the Congregation for Bishops.

The New York Times reports:

“He is saying that you don’t need to be a conservative to become a bishop,” said Alberto Melloni, the director of the John XXIII Foundation for Religious Studies in Bologna, Italy, a liberal Catholic research institute. 
“He wants good bishops, regardless of how conservative or liberal they are.” Cardinal Burke, who came to the Vatican in 2008 after serving as archbishop of St. Louis, is a favorite of many conservative Catholics in the United States for his upholding of church rites and traditions favored by Pope Benedict XVI.
Cardinal Burke’s preference for the long train of billowing red silk known as cappa magna, and other such vestments, has, however, made him seem out of step with Francis, who has made it clear through example that he prefers more humble attire. 
Last week, Cardinal Burke also seemed to create more substantive daylight between himself and the pope, giving an interview in which he raised concerns about comments by Francis that the church should reduce the focus on abortion and same-sex marriage.

(my bold)

Pope Francis is not afraid to shake things up in order to promote change in a system which has long failed the poor and downtrodden.

Two women an invent invisible bike helmet. You silly humans will never spot it.

Two Swedish women invented an invisible helmet for bike riding and let's see if you can spot it. Silly humans. OK, try squinting your eyes then. Fooled you!

Actually Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin fooled you.














According to their site: 
The idea of developing a new type of cycle helmet was a response to the introduction of a law on mandatory helmet use for children up to the age of 15 in Sweden, which triggered a debate on whether cycle helmets should be mandatory for adults too. Anna and Terese saw their master’s thesis as an opportunity to find out whether it would be possible to develop a cycle helmet that people would be happy to wear – whether they had to or not.

Great Post: Ten Ideas For The Productization And Monetization Of The NSA's Spying Infrastructure

Ten Ways To Make NSA Spying Popular With Americans

With a more entrepreneurial focus, the NSA could easily counteract the current unpopularity of its surveillance programs and eliminate concerns over the cost of its multi-billion dollar programs.
Here are ten services the NSA could offer to make its spying more popular with Americans and offset the costs of its massive data collection:

1. Make flying easier. Since the NSA knows who the terrorists are, it can generate proceeds from “Not a Terrorist” badges which allow the wearer to bypass security screenings. For an additional fee, it will text you ahead of time if you’re booked in the middle seat between two lumberjacks.

2. Simplifying tax time. Since the NSA knows everything about our finances and credit card transactions, it will file your return with the IRS. Never be audited again.

3. Data recovery. Lose your phone? The NSA will restore your contact list. Hard drive fail? No worries, the NSA will rebuild it from the cloud.

4. Avoid annoying people. The NSA’s new mobile app will help you identify and avoid specific people. Is that chatty coworker in the restroom? Know before you go. Never run into your ex again.

5. Find your teenager. Kid out past curfew? AT&T and Verizon won’t help? Don’t guess. The NSA’s mobile app will pinpoint your teenager on a moment’s notice.

6. Private investigations. Is the guy you’re dating married? Is your spouse having an affair? There’s no need to hire a private investigator. The NSA will monitor the activities of those around you and email you if there’s anything you should know.

7. Improving relationships. Need to playback that conversation with your partner from 3 days ago where they’d agreed to cancel dinner reservations with your mom? No problem, the NSA audio cloud (built in to iOS and Android) will make it easy to retrieve.

8. Unlimited remote access to data. Out of dropbox space? Need a file from home or from your ex-boyfriend’s computer? No problem, the NSA’s cloud file store has it.

9. Access to medical records. Need to lookup an x-ray for your doctor? Want genetic testing reports on your date? The NSA mobile app has that too.

10. Truly secure email services. Using email encryption is hard, a surveillance-free email service would be super popular right now.

If you have more ideas for the NSA, tweet them with the hashtag #NSAapps. "

Because someone has to: School the House Rock (video)

Roy Zimmerman uploaded this video to help out during the shutdown, pointing out how easy it is to remember that there are three branches of government, just like the three corners of their revolutionary hats.

At least one House Republican believes there are 4 branches of government, not three.


















Watch:

 


 Such a simple concept, even a Tea Partier can understand it.

The words:

Hey, Tea Party House members: This one's for you!

You dress up like a Founding Father
So you might think you'd bother
To read the Constitution in your pocket
But you need some schooling, so let's rock it!

There are three branches
Three branches of government
Three branches of government
Like the three corners of your hat

That should make it easier for you to remember.

There's the legislative branch - that would be you
The Executive Branch - that's ... You-Know-Who
And then there's the branch that you call the Ju...
Diciary
And that's necessary for the

Checks and balances
Checks and balances among the three branches
Three branches of government
Like the three corners of your hat

With me so far?

Now, you can pass a bill, and when you do
It's signed into law by you-know-who
Or vetoed, and then it comes back to you
And you might override it, 
But once it's been decided it's a law

Yes, it's the law of the land, and all the negotiations and compromises have happened already.

Now you may say the law's "Unconstitutional"
Then the Constitution tells us the solution'll be
To take the question of its constitutionality
To the Supreme Court to decide it's ultimate legality

Now you can repeal a law, unless you try 42 times and you don't have the votes. But you can't find a law unconstitutional; that power belongs to the Judicial Branch. And withholding funding from a law you don't like is, in effect, vetoing that law. And funding only certain parts of the law is an attempt to exercise a line-item veto. You don't have the power to veto; that power belongs to the Executive Branch. So, if the Legislative Branch - that's you - usurps the power to determine constitutionality and the veto power, what's really being vetoed is the Rule of Law. And what's really being compromised is the Constitution. Still with me?

So you can pass a bill, and when you do
If you cry "Boo hoo, it's unconstitu...
tional," then try to veto it, well here's a clue:
Your hat only has one point

That's the School the House Rock 
That's the School the House Rock

President Obama’s Brilliant Strategy No One Seems To Recognize

Article Mirror

September 8, 2013
By 

As the media interprets recent events as Obama’s march to war, America and the world falls for it hook, line and sinker. Say what you want about Obama but he is a very smart man. He would never ask permission he did not need from Congress to launch a strike on Syria unless he knew beyond a doubt he could get it. That is if his real intentions were to actually carry out military operations. But why on earth does it appear he wants this war?

After agonizing over this question over and over I began to realize there is only one logical explanation. He does not. Only a month ago the GOP was accusing Obama of being weak for not acting when the “red line” was crossed. There was pressure for him not only from the US but from the world as well. The reputation of the great American defender was on the line. Still it was obvious at the time Obama did not want to rush into another quagmire, bogging down the rest of his tenure as our nation’s leader. But the evidence kept rolling in. He had to do something not only for his reputation as a world leader but for the United States as well.

Cue the British Parliament to provide Obama with the perfect out. Just days after Britain’s governing body eliminated any joint action with the US to participate in a coalition to strike the Assad regime, Obama made a surprising and decisive move. Against the advice of all his advisors, he put any US participation in the hands of our do-nothing Congress with no chance they would give him the approval he needed. Not because it isn’t the right thing to do but because Obama was asking for it. The outcome is a given if you just take a step back and look at the situation rationally. And there is no way Obama is going to launch this attack once Congress says no. It would be political suicide. Bush may have gotten away with it but America is not going to let it happen again. The fallout would signal the end of any and all effectiveness the Obama administration for the remaining years of his presidency. And history would place him with the likes of war criminals like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Let me repeat this. Obama is not that stupid!

So why then does our president appear to be beating the drums of war? The simple answer is he is now regarded as a hawkish leader before the US and the world. And he does so without having to fire a shot. He appears wholeheartedly in favor of a strike and is playing the part well. The hawk stands upon his perch without lifting a talon as Congress now takes any and all responsibility for lack of action on the part of the US. And during this entire debacle, he even manages to make republicans come out as anti-war; something even no one thought possible only a month ago.

If this sounds like an improbable scenario I ask that you to ponder for a moment the potential outcome:

No war
Obama and America look strong and world leaders should not doubt Obama’s willingness to take action
Congress was made to do their job
Congress will take the responsibility of inaction
Republicans have to pretend they are anti-war
Americans comes out against any further wars thereby providing the beginning of the end to our perpetual war
Puts pressure on the UN to take other action
Suddenly the UN is eager to accept other harsh non-military actions against Syria

And there is even the added bonus that the GOP weakening the push to shut down the government over the debt ceiling will not proceed with the intense battle anticipated. Next week Congress returns for only nine days. Nine days to act on the Syrian War, the debt ceiling, immigration, the Voting Rights Acts and many other important issues.

Seeing they can barely rename a post office, Congress will not have the ability to once again play games with by demanding cuts and further tax cuts for corporations. It will have to accept a reasonable offer or be blamed for damage to our nation’s credit rating. Republicans are very aware they will face blame and backlash should this happen.

Tell me this isn’t the best outcome ever. And I honestly think this was Obama’s intention from the beginning. You know damn well if he didn’t do anything, Republicans would be calling him weak because of the corner he had painted himself in when he talked about the red line.

Granted, Obama made a mistake with his “red line” comment, but by acting in a calm savvy manner, he can come out looking the part of the tough guy without even taking a swing. And he smiles as Congress does for him what he wanted in the first place.

If America could just set down their pitchforks and torches for a moment, they would be able to see what brilliant strategy this is..

Cat Poisoned And Dying, Dog Saves Life With Blood Transfusion

By Sir Teddy PH.Dog


3news.co.nz Reports:
" Macy the dog saved the life of Rory the cat by donating blood. He's perfect now, but three weeks ago Rory urgently needed blood after eating rat poison. .... "He was dying. We didn't have time for the cat blood to arrive or be matched," says Rory's owner, Kim Edwards.
It was Friday night and no labs were open to check his blood type, let alone get supplies. So vet Kate Heller sought advice and was told to try dog blood. "I hadn't heard about it or read about it. It's not in any textbook," says Ms Heller.
Rory needed a donor fast. So Ms Edwards thought fast and phoned a friend in her book club.
"[I had] never heard of anything like that before. I thought she was joking," says Macy's owner, Michelle Whitemore. But Rory desperately needed the 18-month-old Labrador.
Macy was rushed to the vet where she donated 120ml of blood, and within an hour Rory the cat was saved.
It may sound wacky, but it's science. Cats don't have antibodies that reject dogs' blood, so a transfusion may buy enough time for the cat to regenerate its own red blood cells. But only one transfusion can be done because a second dose of dog blood will be the death of the cat.
"He is not out fetching the newspaper or peeing on power poles or barking yet! He is just the normal cat that we have – playful, friendly," says Ms Edwards. "
