In Case You Missed It

Scientists are working on a television that will allow viewers to actually smell their favorite television shows. In an unrelated story, executives over at the Food Network have bought 3,000 cases of champagne and balloons.

A badass pizza shop burglar in Woodland, California left behind an important piece of equipment when he ran from the alarm. His toy cow flashlight. Dennis The Menace is being sought for questioning.

An elder couple in Chino, California had a hole ripped in their room and their bed destroyed by a piece of frozen crap. Crap from the sky. Holy Crap? I know it was ice, but frozen poop's funnier.

A Michigan man was arrested, again, for breaking into a store to steal a mannequin
. Dude, they have things called Real Dolls* now.

This one speaks for itself.

Cows in Canada are being used to test defective high-voltage lines. That's what they say, but the truth is that McDonalds is testing out their new McElectro burger.

1 out of 5 British children can't find the U.K. on the map. I thought Americans were the dumbest people on the planet?

In what may be the strangest story ever, an elderly Japanese man was spotted dragging a turtle down the street by a string. When confronted by police, Matsuhashi-san kicks the turtle and bite the cop. Something tells me Sake was involved.

The runner up for this weeks Darwin Award is this unidentified Arizona man. He needed a cigarette. Dumb in and of itself, but it seems that he was using his Oxygen tank at the time. Well, I think you can guess the rest.

And the winner of this weeks Darwin Award is Brian Murry of Huffman, Texas. Police received a call from a man who said that his brother was cooking meth, had a gun and that he was scared. They went to investigate. Upon finding the home, Brian Murry decides he wants to come out and aim a BB gun at the officers. Cooking meth? -500 IQ points. Aiming a gun a police officers? -2000 IQ points.

That's so not a fair competition. The US is more than 14 and a half times larger than the UK.

It'd be more comparable if you asked how many Americans could point out Wyoming or Oregon on an unmarked map.

I always thought Aussies were the dumbest people in the world. But alas; thats not fair of me because I only know one. Or just one that continually shows his stupidity. Or am I mistaking stupidity for immaturity? Hard to tell the difference.

Yeah, see that's where you and I part ways John. I look at the statistics and actual figures, and you live in a world of your own contradictory imaginings.

Hello fellow bloggers,

I recently published an article on how security systems work and which are the most effective for your home – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

Talking Security Devices. First these devices have been used mainly for talking, but later on they have been integrated into home security system, along with other facilities like opening the door, turning on the light, and for emergency alert.

Back-up Power Supply. You don’t want to live in a movie, especially not in a classic thriller where the lights and home security system turn off especially when you need them more. To avoid this protect your house with a back-up supply.

Smoke Detectors. They add supplementary security to your home. The important thing is to be integrated into your home security and alarm system. These detectors don’t just detect the smoke but they can also help you to escape from a fire in time, at the same time, they cam notify the fire department. Some smoke detector systems have a power supply integrated.

House or Window Decals and Yard Signs. These are quite harmless signs of a possible existence of home security system in your house; they are posted on visible places, like windows, doors, in the yards etc., to scary, confuse and deter the burglars.

Wireless Systems. They offer all the protection necessary to your home and you get rid of hiding and masking all those cords, wires and extra outlets (you can never use for other purposes). The parts, spread around your home, communicate with the master control panel through radio frequencies – mostly used together with wireless CCTV cameras .

Security Services. These services are furnished by companies, which offer you not only the installation but also the maintenance of the system, the monitoring for cases of emergency to alert the police department, fire department, the ambulance, and relocation services for the cases when you move.

Master Control Panel. It is the central device that collects the information from all the sensors and keypads, and transmits the data to the monitoring companies.

If you feel this helps, please drop by my website for additional information, such as advice on buying a home security camera or resources on home security alarms .
