"Live wire interrupts copper thief's getaway"
Actually not all that strange, it happens to more than a few wire thieves. Used to see it somewhat frequently in less developed countries.
SSA has some really STUPID people working in ints agency and this supervisor is among the worst. She rivals the idiots in Congress like Hank Johnson who thought Guam was going to tip over and Joe Biden who always makes stupid statements. I wonder who their DNA came from? Apes? Monkeys? Kenya?
Thanks for not adding any snide comments to the circumcision item - except for putting it on this page. What's really stranger than fiction is that in the 21st century, some people in the developed world still feel compelled to cut an integral part off healthy baby boys' (but not girls') genitals - and the law still lets them!
Ed and Elaine brown sentenced to 37 years COME ON are you serious ?
This is an outrage.
Are you prepared ?

West is lying (which is pretty much par for the course for the Disco 'Tute): there are vanishingly few "scientists", no "findings" (just a bunch of long-discredited arguments) supporting his position, and no evidence of 'persecution' against it (just a bunch of self-created faux-martyrs).
All it adds up to is a rather shop-worn conspiracy theory for explaining why, in spite of its demise having been predicted nearly continuously for the last 150 years, the Theory of Evolution continues to go from strength to strength.
In the "Birds of a Feather" article, you should have mentioned that evolution is a scientific theory, while intelligent design creationism is not. According to a Federal judge's decision in 2005, "We have concluded that intelligent design is not science, and moreover that intelligent design cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents."
That's Athens, Georgia, not Athens, Ohio.
Here's the article in the Athens, (Georgia), Banner Herald:
Damn, it took the CIA that long to figure it out that there were no bar code messages from al Qa'eda? EVERYBODY knows that the bar code signals are from a race of grey-green aliens, like the Roswell type, and show the exact location of a warehouse where there are 17 DVDs worth of plans for an a FTL spaceship, and coordinates to program into a common tape recorder which will then lead you to their home planet.
Where you will be probed, then cooked and eaten.
I personally have never seen pornography. The professor needs to ship me a copy of each piece of Pornography to test that theory, and, of course, so I can find out what it looks like, thus making it easier to avoid in the future.
Dang, I knew those Texas pecan pies were bad for the health...

Dr. Alan Bittner has claimed to the Wall St Journal that no one has ever used human bio waste as a form of fuel and he is wrong. The Nazi's were rendering oil from the bodies of dead Jews. This was an enormous atrocity of it's kind because it was targeted as hate to a race.
But taking in a modern society that knows the importance of recycling, is their any reason why a person cannot leave his or her body to fuel. The important organs can be removed for transplant and the rest can be rendered to make biodiesel. If the choice is from the individual, is there any reason why this cannot be done today?
Can't make this stuff up!!

Kirk, let's do a quick "fact check" on one of the pieces why don't we.
The second to last item says "a .22-caliber revolver loaded with buckshot". Buckshot is a very specific size of shot ranging in size from #4 which is .24" up to 000 which is .36". The 22 caliber revolver has a barrel diameter of .22". Yes, that means that buckshot can't have come out of the barrel of the pistol.
A wikipedia article tells us about such "rat shot" loads here:
Certainly not "buckshot". Probably not even true to begin with. But hey, it got "fact checked" by the guy you paid good money for the filler and that's good enough for a top flight free newspaper like the Indy.
Thanks for your post, Indylover. In response to Mister Mxyzptik: Actually, these are rarely though not "never" local stories because this is a nationally syndicated column. As noted in the print edition, it's compiled by someone in Virginia, and shared by newspapers across the country. And it's worth noting that the entire column is fact-checked.
Indylover, most of these stories are folklore. That's why they never are local stories. If you were to bother researching them most would come back as BS.
I daresay this is one of my favorite sections of the Indy. Who knew America could have such big blunders? Although it would be nice to see some stoires about the Springs so we can all go down to the jail and laugh at them.
Just want to say thanks for all the great stories over the years. I haven't been able to keep up with them (carreer change and all-now I drive the entire U.S., just a truck driving grandmother). Thanks again for the laughter...
Living in the springs, but touring the U.S.
i am so glad that you guys started posting the stranger then fiction. i used to live in the springs, and the independent is my favorite paper!
I'm the brother of Micaela, the woman died, hit in the head by elicopter's main rotor during the initial climb after take off the 24 july in a little village in darwin's area in north Australia. The police write me that Manuele, (the man walking togheter with my sister ) was a less one meter from my sister and Manule is hight m. 1.85 and my sister was high m. 1.58. It's very strange that the higest is alive and the lowest is died.... but in this case we can write that Manuele has been really miracled!
another strange situation, maybe there will be not a the guilt, because the wind, said the pilot at the police, go down the elicopters and than during the recovery manoeuvre my sister was fatally injured. For this, now the elicopter insurance would not payed!!! Other the damage for me and my parent we've a big prank!I ask me, where's the justice?Help me
