Boys Will Be Boys, Even if they are 21-year-olds

Apparently snow ploys can handle a couple feet of snow in the middle of a blizzard, but start throwing snowballs at it, and game over.

Two Virginia College students are facing 1 to 5 years in prison if convicted of pelting a city snow plow and an unmarkerd police car with snowballs. This felony snowball assault occured this past Saturday during the unusual blizzard conditions recently plaguing the Mid-Atlantic.

Snowmageddon, I believe Obama called it. So much for global warming when Virginia has been pounded harder than New Hampshire this winter season…

Police report that the two students, Charles Gill and Ryan Knight first began to playful launch snowballs at the oncoming city snow plow. The plow driver then called the police, who soon arrived on the scene of the snowy onslaught in an unmarked police car. The snowballs continued to fly hitting the police car too, until the assailants were apprehended and charged with felony counts of throwing objects at occupied vehicles.

It looks like more snowballs may fly later this week, as another freak snow storm is about to dump anther foot or two on the area. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

Be Safe, Be Prepared, Watch out for snowballs.

Don’t Steal the Orange Juice

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 18 November, 2008

A guy in Lynchburg, Virginia was busted for burglary when greasy fingerprints on an orange juice bottle was left at the scene.

Apparently while stealing appliances, tools, jewelry and other household items, the burglar also raided the fridge. At one home, this guy helped himself to some fried chicken and oj, not the most appealing combination, but I guess beggers (or thieves) can’t be choosers. When he non-discretely disgarded the the trash, police at the scene were able to lift the chicken grease prints off of the bottle and match them to the burglar.

He ended up sentenced to six years in jail as has been found guilty of at least three counts of burglary and another two counts of grand larceny over several months.

It was also reported the 78 bags of stolen popcorn were recovered at the man’s home, among other stolen property. Details on the popcorn were not elaborated on, whether this was some strange collection of popcorn from several different locations pooled together, or if someone actually had 78 bags of popcorn in their house for him to steal all at once.

That is alot of popcorn.

Why spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy security system and pay expensive monitoring fees when you can get the Mace Wireless Security System for a fraction of the cost? This system is easy to operate security system will sound an alarm and then dial up 5 preset phone numbers to let you know motion has been detected or a door or window has opened in your home. (A standard land telephone line with “tone” dialing is required.)

The Mace Wireless Security System is a new and inexpensive way to protect you, your family, your home, your chicken, popcorn and your orange juice too.

Even small businesses would benefit greatly by the cost-effective and reliable protection provided by this wireless security system.

KFC approved, protect yourself today.
