    HIGHLAND >> A Cal Fire firefighter in Highland Thursday found a new use for the trauma shear scissors. Panicked dog owners brought his dog to Cal Fire station, 26974 Base Line, after the pup got its head stuck in a jar. “This doggie ... got into the hard plastic jar to steal the trail mix inside and couldn’t get out,” said Cal Fire spokeswoman Liz Brown. The owners tried at home to get the jar off, but when they were unsuccessful, they brought the dog to the fire station, she said.

    680 News ^ | June 30, 2016 | Staff
    Some commuters got some rather strange traffic tips earlier this week in Ajax. Whitby Coun. Elizabeth Roy snapped photos of these “rogue” road signs, one wishing drivers a “not so nice” morning while another warned of some strong atmospheric disturbances. Durham Region officials say someone got access to the construction sign’s controls on Westney Road and changed the message sometime during the night. The messages were removed later that morning.

    WASHINGTON — The US Army’s ongoing efforts to be more open and accepting has expanded this week to include another historically marginalized group: Furries. According to sources close to acting Army Secretary John McHugh, the Army will soon announce a set of uniform accommodations for these soldiers, who fetishize animal costumes. “We are committed to allowing these people to follow their religion or their hearts or the voices in their fillings, or whatever the hell it is that drives them to dress and act this way,” said the source, who requested anonymity on the grounds that he didn’t want his...

According to Eater.com, a brawl broke out at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday that ended up in punches being landed, hair being pulled, chairs being thrown, and a five-minute video that’s gone viral, logging more than 1.7 million views.

    ou may not have noticed but our sun has gone as blank as a cue ball. As in, it’s lost its spots. According to scientists, this unsettling phenomenon is a sign we are heading for a mini ice age. Meteorologist and renowned sun-watcher Paul Dorian raised the alarm in his latest report, which has sparked a mild panic about an impending “Game of Thrones”-style winter not seen since the 17th century.

    Mt. McKinley National Park: This is a very sad story about a formerly well-balanced wild bear. Everybody should heed the warnings not to feed wildlife because they become dependent and don't forage for themselves any longer. It is such a tragedy to see what has been done to our country's wildlife. The U.S. Forest Service photo below captures a disturbing trend that is beginning to affect U.S. wildlife. Animals that formerly were self-sufficient are now showing signs of belonging to the Democrat Party. They have apparently learned to just sit and wait for the government to step in and provide...

    It’s appalling. It’s sickening. It’s racist. It’s the pool safety poster from the American Red Cross. “Don’t look directly at it,” Co-host Pat Gray warned. An outdated poster intended to inform children about pool safety has at long last been called out by the PC police. “Thankfully some parent found and saw this . . . not at one, but at two separate pools,” Co-host Stu Burguiere said. The poster depicts children of different colors around and in a local pool, doing things that are either deemed “cool” or “not cool.”
  • The F-4 Is a Great Fighter With a Bad Reputation

    06/28/2016 11:21:20 AM PDT · by C19fan · 55 replies
    War is Boring ^ | June 25, 2016 | Sebastien Roblin
    The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a legendary aircraft — an icon of the Vietnam War and the archetype of the third-generation jet fighter designs that entered service in the 1960s. More than 5,000 of these heavy supersonic fighters were built, and hundreds continue to serve and even see combat in several air forces today. But the Phantom’s record in air-to-air combat over Vietnam — especially when compared to its successor, the F-15 Eagle, which has never been shot down in air-to-air combat — has left it with a reputation of being a clumsy bruiser reliant on brute engine power and obsolete weapons technology.

    The idea for the sex café has been brewing for several months, Bradley Charvet of the Geneva firm Facegirl told Geneva’s Le Matin newspaper recently. Modelled on similar establishments in Thailand, the proposed Geneva café would add a new dimension to the sex trade in the city of the protestant reformer Calvin. Put simply, the business model would see men ordering a coffee and using an iPad to select a prostitute they want to perform oral sex on them. They would then sit at the bar.

    The heirs of 60-year-old Jeffry Lash plan to destroy a stockpile of $5 million in guns and ammunition discovered after his death in Pacific Palisades last year. Family members intend to destroy the guns to show their disapproval of “gun violence.” Lash was discovered dead in an SUV in the summer of 2015. Breitbart News reported that as Lash approached death, he told various women he was suffering side effects from poisonous agents to which he had allegedly been exposed while working for the CIA. In truth, he had cancer. According to ABC 7, “Police said Lash stockpiled more than...

The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable. Someone then created a...

Aiello’s entire roughly 350-student graduating class was tasked with writing a graduation speech as part of an English assignment. The speeches were then evaluated by teachers and staff before three finalists were selected....
