    There was a liquor ban in the Coromandel for New Years so some kids built an island and claimed they were drinking in "international waters".

    "That's creative thinking - if I had known [about it] I probably would have joined them," said local police commander Inspector John Kelly when told about the sand island.

    During 1950-1960's A Family From Texas Had A Lion As A Pet (more images: Blondie, the Living Room Lion

    And apparently this was one of many such wild animals the owner had in his possession before one of the animals severely mauled a family member; in which he decided to keep only 'Blondie.'

    More info on the owner

    This was commemorating

    A new law that took effect in Oregon this week will allow residents in rural counties to pump their own gas.

    “I don’t even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian . . . I say NO THANKS! I don’t like to smell like gasoline!” one woman wrote on KTVL’s Facebook post.

    “No! Disabled, seniors, people with young children in the car need help. Not to mention getting out of your car with transients around and not feeling safe. This is a very bad idea. Grrr,” another woman wrote.
