Heh.

A young man from Cologne has suffered severe wounds including the loss of several teeth after the e-cigarette he was smoking exploded in his mouth.

(snip)

Police reported on Thursday that they believe he was there to buy an new battery and an evaporator head for his own e-cigarette.

He then tried the two new parts in his device in the shop. But as soon as he inhaled on the device, it exploded, burning and wounding his face and knocking several teeth out of his mouth.

“Lake effect” takes on a new meaning:

Giant goldfish are becoming a problem in Minnesota lakes, and wildlife officials are warning fish owners who no longer want to care for their pets not to flush them down the toilet or dispose of them in lakes, ponds or waterways.

Daniel Ruth notes that Florida is kind of maybe sort of thinking about considering regulating venomous reptiles. The whole article is a gem and joy which also applies to topics other than snakes in locales other than Florida. Here’s a snippet:

Even Brian Yablonski, the FWC (which somewhat unaccountably seems to stand for “Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission”–ed.) chairman, admitted to the Panama City News Herald that he was at a loss to understand why anyone would want to own a venomous snake, adding: “With freedom comes responsibility, and somehow with the responsibility side, the wheels have fallen off a little bit.”

Isn’t that precious? It’s rather doubtful the Founding Fathers ever considered inserting the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of cottonmouth moccasins” into the Declaration of Independence.

I once knew a fellow who bought a house with a stand of bamboo in the back yard. He grew to hate the stuff.

Frederick Neuman tries to figure out what goes on ladies’ rooms to give Donald Trump a case of the wobbling willies. A bit:

The last time I had a serious discussion about what went on in the ladies (girls’) room I was eight or nine years old.

A squabble between staff and management at a Sacramento DMV call center has broken out over a policy that deducts employees’ leave time or docks pay when a toilet trip takes more than seven minutes, according to grievances filed by SEIU Local 1000.
