Saturday/weekend light fare
Posted December 20, 2014on:
Good Saturday and weekend to you Widdershins. As a break from the holiday rush, let’s take a look at some of the odd, funny or unusual things I’ve found on the internets and I’ll throw in a few youtubes that I thought were cute.
Some people are amazing
And I don’t mean that in a good way in this case. So Anthony Ballard decided to go into the Treasure Coast Lawn Equipment store and asked for a dollar’s worth of change. The article doesn’t say he asked for change for a dollar, just that he asked for a dollar’s worth of change. Anyway, while he was in there he decided to stick a chainsaw down his pants 😯 The article says the $600 Stihl chainsaw was not running at the time.
The accused chainsaw crook came in Treasure Coast Lawn Equipment in the 1800 block of Southwest Bayshore Boulevard and reportedly asked for $1 worth of change, according to a police report.
He picked up a Stihl chainsaw valued at more than $600 and left, riding away on a bicycle.
Surveillance video shows him calmly stuff the saw down his shorts and cover it with his shirt.
The saw does not appear to be running at the time.
So Anthony takes off on his bicycle and then ditched the chainsaw in the woods. Employees chased Anthony but couldn’t catch him and they then called 911. The chainsaw was recovered but the police couldn’t find Bullard. Later, the employees saw Bullard looking for the chainsaw so they called the police and he was caught.
When police apprehended Ballard, he said he stole the saw and put it in the woods.
“He later had a change of heart so decided to go get the saw and return it to the store,” a report states.
And here is Anthony taking the chainsaw.
You can’t fix stupid
Chad Lieberman had a great deal on his New York apartment. You see, Chad inherited his grandfather’s sweet $100-a-month rent deal on a four-bedroom Upper East Side apartment. Now I’m no specialist on New York apartments, but four bedrooms…$100 a month seems pretty good to me. But Chad was unhappy. You see, grandpa’s deal for the hundred dollars a month rent was because he had struck a deal with some developers to put up a 25 story building next door and it blocked some of the air and light. Grandpa figured it was worth it to give up some light for four bedrooms. However, Chad though differently.
After his grandfather’s death, Lieberman continued to enjoy the benefits of the massive, rent-controlled space, but didn’t want to live with its drawbacks. He sued, claiming his grandfather’s agreement was illegal, and the 246-unit building next door was thus illegally depriving him of the enjoyment of his 8-room palace.
Lieberman, who moved in with his grandfather in 2009, and stayed in the apartment after he passed away last year, demanded it be restored to its former condition by eliminating the neighboring building. [Sure Chad, no problem there]
A judge threw the request out, finding that Lieberman had no standing to sue, as the deal was between the building owner and his grandpa, who knew exactly what he was doing. Even worse for Lieberman—but great for anyone who pays $3,000 for a studio and loves schadenfreude—the lawsuit backfired by reminding the landlord that the rent-control part of the deal also only applied to his grandfather.
You see what I mean about that stupid stuff?
Here’s kind of a fun one
So was Brother Bluto here?
I don’t really even want to go here but…so there was a fire in attic of a frat house at the University of Houston. And frat bros being frat bros, they just did what came naturally to them.
A heater started an electrical fire last night in the Kappa Alpha attic at the University of Houston, and even a trash can full of bathroom water couldn’t stop it. So one brave brother sprung into action and whipped out his hose. Surprisingly, his urine was unable to quell the flames, which were later extinguished by professional firefighters.
“We saw, like, a fire in the attic and stuff and like smoke was coming out. We were just like, ‘What are we supposed to do with this fire?’ and we all just took off,” first reponder (urine division) Dylan Koops told KHOU, “I p****d on it, but nothing was working.”
Dylan, like, I hope, like, you’re not like a language major or something like that.
This little English bulldog pup just loves his new memory foam bed. Can’t blame him!
So I wonder if this bear cub was looking for a Christmas card?
Poor kitteh here must have just felt trapped by this big ole Rottie.
Okay Widdershins, that’s all I have for today. It’s an open thread and if anyone is around this weekend right before Christmas, just comment away on anything your heart desires.
