"What Happened" summed up in two minutes

Screwed on Saturday out of McDonald's Szechuan McNugget Sauce? Make your own!

This is from a few months back via Reddit:

"Mince 6 cloves of Garlic and sweat (heat them up in a skillet)
add 4 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
add soy sauce to taste (DO NOT USE LOW SODIUM SAUCE)
add 2 tablespoon Plum Sake (Drink additional 3 oz Plum Sake)
Reduce sauce slightly (Drink additional 1.5 oz Plum Sake)
3 1/2 tablespoons cock sauce (Sriracha)
add 2 tablespoon brown sugar
Red pepper flakes to taste
Minced Ginger to taste
Consume remaining Plum Sake
Simmer that shit for a solid 5 minutes, stirring pretty much constantly. The brown sugar helps it keep the proper consistency, so it’s important to use. Play around with the recipe to your taste. Might want more or less balsamic vinegar. Might want more or more Plum Sake. I’d definitely recommend you make it several times to figure out your own flavor."

"Made with 'Love'" Not so fast, says the FDA

CONCORD, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts bakery's granola may be made with love, but federal officials say it shouldn't be listed as an ingredient on the package.

Nashoba Brook Bakery, in Concord, was taken to task by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for listing "love" as an ingredient on its Nashoba Granola label. In a letter posted this week on the FDA website, the agency said federal regulations require that ingredients "must be listed by their common or usual name."

"'Love' is not a common or usual name of an ingredient, and is considered to be intervening material because it is not part of the common or usual name of the ingredient," the FDA wrote.

Does this look like a refrigerant hose to you?

Ignore the Coke arrow.

I'm thinking he used a refrigerant tank to freeze the safety glass to make it easier to break. It really looks like one of these to me:

That's a high pressure refrigerant line used for recharging R410a systems.

Want to seriously take on your idiotic HOA? Bring in a TANK.

Wealthy homeowners in one tiny Fort Worth suburb say their neighbor’s decision to park a World War II-era tank in front of his multimillion-dollar home is making them nervous.

At least that’s what attorney Tony Buzbee, a history buff who purchased the WWII tank for $600,000 earlier this year, learned when his neighborhood homeowners’ association sent him a letter saying the tank “impedes traffic” and causes a “safety issue” and “serious concerns for neighbors."

Buzbee says he’s temporarily storing the tank at his River Oaks, Texas home before moving it out to his ranch in East Texas later this year. But even though he’s made it clear that the tank’s presence is temporary, his neighbors are pressing him to remove the tank as soon as possible, according to Houston’s KHOU television station.

Unfazed by his whiny neighbors, Buzbee is pushing back against what he described as NIMBYism run amok, telling local media outlets that his neighbors need to “lighten up” and that the tank isn’t going anywhere unless he decides to move it. Buzbee said the tank “took a year to get here, but now it’s on River Oaks Boulevard,” according to Fox. “This particular tank landed at Normandy. It liberated Paris, and ultimately went all the way to Berlin. There’s a lot of history here.”

"It's not violating any ordinance, but for some people it makes the homeowners association uncomfortable," said Buzbee.

They sent Buzbee a letter saying the tank "impedes traffic", causes a "safety issue" and is causing "serious concerns for neighbors".

"If you're offended just lighten up, my goodness it isn't hurting anyone," said Buzbee.

Buzbee says he's not losing too much sleep over that HOA letter. For now though, he's keeping his new tank right where it is.

"The problem is there is no action they can take," said Buzbee. "They can ticket it or they can try to tow it, but the truth is unless I decide to move it, it's not going anywhere."

Buzbee says the tank will eventually end up on his ranch in east Texas.
The irony is, with the tank easily visible to any would-be criminals, Buzbee's block is probably the safest in the town."

It appears he left a note

"The killer, 64, massacred 59 people from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay in the worst rampage ever in the history of the US.

SWAT cops burst into his 32nd floor room and were met with the grim scene of 23 guns, ammunition littering the floor, and the dead Paddock.

Images seemingly surfaced showing Paddock lying dead on the hotel room floor with blood pouring from his mouth.

The alleged gunman appears to be wearing a brown shirt, black slacks, loafers and a pair of gloves.

Chillingly, he appears to have left some kind of note on the side table."

Good grief, he FILMED himself!!

Las Vegas madman Stephen Paddock set up a camera inside his hotel room to capture his deadly shooting rampage — and other surveillance in the hallway to alert him as cops closed in on him, according to reports.

The shooter had at least one lens set up to tape himself as he unleashed hell on thousands of unsuspecting concertgoers several hundred yards below his ritzy casino suite, according to ABC News.

Sickening footage of young elephants in Zimbabwe captured, abused, and hauled for Chinese zoos

"In the early morning of 8 August, five elephants were caught in Hwange national park by officials at Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks).

These captures are usually kept as secret as possible. The Guardian understands that in this case the usual procedure was followed. First, a viable herd is identified. Then operatives in a helicopter pick off the younger elephants with a sedative fired from a rifle. As the elephant collapses, the pilot dive-bombs the immediate vicinity so the rest of the herd, attempting to come to the aid of the fallen animal, are kept at bay. When things quieten down, a ground-team approaches the sedated elephants on foot, bundles them up, and drags them on to trailers.

The footage, a series of isolated clips and photographs provided to the Guardian by an anonymous source associated with the operation, documents the moment that operatives are running into the bush, then shows them tying up one young elephant. The elephants are then seen herded together in a holding pen near the main tourist camp in Hwange.

Finally, in the most disturbing part of the footage, a small female elephant, likely around five years old, is seen standing in the trailer. Her body is tightly tied to the vehicle by two ropes. Only minutes after being taken from the wild, the animal, still groggy from the sedative, is unable to understand that the officials want her to back into the truck, so they smack her on her body, twist her trunk, pull her by her tail and repeatedly kick her in the head with their boots."

Proof that I live in a truly surreal world

So I got up this morning and as usual my first task is to take the dog out, and as usual he ran ahead of me to the back door. Well he begins the hysterical barking that says to me something or someone is at my back door. So I go down and what do I see? There is a small miniature pot belly pig looking into my living room. She belongs to some neighbors who live a bit up the road. For some weird reason she has decided she wants to live with us I think since this is the third time she has got loose and every time she comes here.

I step out and she is dancing around in circles oinking away in joy. We had to lead her back to the neighbor's house. She was not happy to go. I simply cannot take in something I enjoy eating so much.
