He was good-looking before the police chase. Check out the following links to see him now! >>>Russell Rhodes, a WTVT Fox 13 news anchor tried to evade the cops on a drunk driving stop. When the cop stopped his BMW, Rhodes got out of his car with his pants and belt undone (no elaboration on that). When the cop questioned him on this, he ran way but was wrestled to the ground and his face got messed up. Click here to read his police report (includes stunning mug shot photo). See Rhodes' WTVT Bio page. More on MSNBC. The TV station posted this statement about anchor Rhodes' arrest on its website.

This beautiful photo was taken on the corner of Buci and Seine in St-Germain-des-Pres, Paris. The photographer Brent Townshend used multiple fisheye lenses and self-written software to stitch the panoramic series of shots together, composing the eye-catching final image.
He says that the emergent shape of a dove, formed by the outlines of the buildings, was planned at the time of photographing and is not the result of any ‘tweaking’ beyond the use of his software to convert an essentially spherical panorama into a flat image.
You can find more of Brent’s excellent spherical photos at his website or you can see see the actual geographical location of many of his shots referenced on google earth through his Panoramio profile.

2 minutes- Follow the second hand of a clock for one minute. Think of nothing else. Then close your eyes. See if you can hold them closed for exactly one minute.
3 minutes-Pick up a page of text and turn it upside down. Read from the bottom to the top. Notice how your brain stretches as you try to read the words and understand sentences.
3 minutes-Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Think the sounds 'Ah' on the inhale, and 'Ha' on the exhale. Bring your mind gently back to the sounds if it wanders.
2 minutes-Mentally measure any space you are in (width, length, ceiling height. You can carry a measuring tape to check yourself. Try it! This is fun. 3 minutes-Take a mental vacation. Close your eyes. Pick an exotic locale. Place yourself there. Imagine as many specific sights, sounds, and smells as you can. . (e.g. canals of Venice, streets of Cairo, a hike in the Swiss Alps, etc...)
5 minutes-Assign the numerical values 1-26 to each letter of the alphabet (A= 1, B=2, etc..) Think of five words where the sum of the letters of each word equals 38.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil, lay your bacon about 3/4" to 1" apart.
Bake at 400 for 12 to 20 minutes. The timing just depends on how crispy you like your bacon. The high heat is the key for crispness.
Remove the pan from the oven, allow it to cool for a minute or two on the sheet and then remove it to a paper towel lined plate. You can blot it with another paper towel to remove any excess grease .
Ball up the tin foil, toss it and then give your pan a quick rinse in soapy water.
And There You Go- You can feed more hungry guests this way too. I also line roasting pans and casserole dishes with tin foil to make quick clean-ups.
Melville Stone was a self-made man, who worked his way up from newspaper carrier to publisher of the Chicago Daily News. When Stone first started his newspaper in 1875, the price was a penny. Circulation rose rapidly at first, then leveled off. Then sales started lagging. When Stone investigated why fewer people were buying his paper, he discovered the problem had nothing to do with its quality. Pennies were in short supply. Stone decided he had to do something.
First he traveled to the United States mint in Philadelphia and brought about the transfer of barrels of pennies to Chicago. The problem then became how to get the pennies into circulation. So Stone persuaded Chicago merchants to sponsor "odd-price sales," during which they would sell their merchandise for a penny under the regular price. The odd prices did the trick. People had pennies again, and Stone’s paper flourished. And that is why store items today cost "$8.99," or $12.99," instead of even dollar amounts.

So they mailed her.
On Feb. 19, 1914, May's parents presented her at the post office in Grangeville, Idaho, and proposed mailing her parcel post to Lewiston, some 75 miles away. The postmaster found that the "package" was just under the 50-pound weight limit, so he winked at their plan, classed May as a baby chick, and attached 53 cents in stamps to her coat. May passed the entire trip in the train's mail compartment and was duly delivered to her grandparents in Lewiston by mail clerk Leonard Mochel.
Other living parcels: Henry Box Brown, Charles McKinley, Owney the dog.
Here's a little tip that I thought would be interesting to share with you all to build up your upper body strength. It's really easy and takes no time at all but works a treat.
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 2kg potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 5kg potato bags.
Then try 10kg potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 20kg potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (we are very proud, we are at this level)
After you feel confident at this level, put a potato in each of the bags.

MILWAUKEE - A whopper about a devious baby and his diapers is the top lie of 2008, an organization of champion fibbers declared Monday. The Burlington Liars Club bestowed its top award for this line: "My grandson is the most persuasive liar I have ever met. By the time he was 2 years old he could dirty his diaper and make his mother believe someone else had done it."
Bored teen girl (between snapping her chewing gum): “Yeah–I’m looking for this book, When I Drop Dead?”
Me: “I can’t seem to find it in the system. Do you know who the author is?”
Bored teen girl: “I dunno. Flooker or Flocker or something.”
*A light goes on in my head*
Me: “Do you mean AS I LAY DYING, by WILLIAM FAULKNER??”
Her: *explosive sigh* “Yeah. Whatever. That.”
