Michigan man is caught running in empties.
This reminds me of the story about the customs official who watched a man push a wheelbarrow loaded with junk across the border every day. He became convinced that the man was smuggling something, but, despite the most intense searches, he never found any contraband.
Many years later, the two men, both long retired, ran into each other in a bar in a border town. After a couple of drinks, the ex-border guard said, “Look. I know you were smuggling something. I need to know, what was it? I’m retired–I promise I it’s just between us. Please tell me.”

A Foresthill man has been arrested on suspicion of interfering with firefighting operations during the recent Trailhead Fire by flying a drone over the fire, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The presence of the drone forced Cal Fire to ground firefighting aircraft due to the risk of a collision.
Information posted on social media helped lead Cal Fire law enforcement officers to 57-year-old Eric Wamser. He was arrested Friday afternoon and booked into the Placer County Jail.
What’s a little breaking and entering when it can get you hit points*?
Another aspect of the game’s virtual landscape is the Pokémon Gym – where characters can battle against each other.

The university has asked via its website that players refrain from trespassing on the building site.
We are an society of international stupid.
*Do gamers still call them “hit points”?
The resident curmudgeon at my local rag is driven to distraction.
When I was on my way to the TWUUG meeting the day after I posted this, some bozo coming the other way tried to swing a left at a light in front of me while I was trying to go straight with the right-of-way. I seldom use my horn, but using it gave me pleasure at that point in a juncture of a confluence of time.
He was not texting or talking on a cell. He was just a bozo incapable of thinking of anything other than hisownself.
This looks like a clear case of date-and-switch:
The US Federal Trade Commission has decided to add Ashley Madison’s “fembots” to the company’s long list of woes.
The existence of the fembots – fake profiles used to keep men on the “Life is short, have an affair” forking out funds in case they got lucky – was revealed after the infamous hack of the site. . . .
At its worst, the site was accused of having just 1 per cent of “real women” among its members: the rest of its female profiles were fembots.

If I ever see a car riding a stolen moped run into someone, I’ll write a headline about it too.
