A 26-year-old Brunswick man was arrested about 5 a.m. this morning after he climbed aboard the River Queen and damaged equipment in the boat’s wheelhouse, Savannah-Chatham metro police are reporting.
William Cole was first noticed by a passing cab driver, Tim Irish, who heard a commotion along Rousakis Plaza. As he swung a flashlight around the area, he saw a shirtless man yelling atop the uppermost deck of boat….
He told officers “the boat had angered him because of the way it was looking at him.”

Punxsutawney Phil indicted for false informing
The indictment, filed by Butler County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Gmoser, alleges that on or about February 02, 2013, at Gobbler’s Knob, Punxsutawney Phil did purposely, and with
prior calculation and design, cause the people to believe that Spring would come early.
What’s in store now for Phil? Pending an extradition hearing, Gmoser says it’s curtains for the little guy, suggesting that the penance for such a misrepresentation should be the death penalty.
“Since he’s already serving a life sentence behind bars, as you know. There wasn’t much left as far as a penalty other than a death sentence,” added Gmoser.
*Seriously watch the video below!!*
The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge “is the Rodney Dangerfield of bridges,” as our friends at KQED say. While the Golden Gate gets respect and tourists, the Bay Bridge simply does its job. But the humble span will shine Tuesday, thanks to 25,000 light-emitting diodes.
The white lights will form patterns that continuously morph and move across the bridge’s span, or slide up or down its supports. The Bay Lights project is the work of artist Leo Villareal, who uses diodes like pixels to create scenes of mesmerizing fluidity…
I’ve never heard of the Bay Bridge being called the “Rodney Dangerfield of bridges,” but that’s hilarious. I *do* respect you Bay Bridge. You let me live in SF while going to school in Berkeley, and how else would I get to IKEA? ❤
I grew up in Cleveland. I can easily say this is the prettiest picture I’ve seen of it.. and taken from the appropriate distance one should stay from Cleveland (JK GUYS, settle down, Drew Carey blah blah blah, loving/hating Lebron, weird EERF Stamp..)
In most places across the world, the topic of firewood would hardly be expected to set the nation’s imagination alight.
But in Norway, a television programme on the subject of wood caused quite a stir, after splitting the country straight down the middle on how it should be stacked.
Nearly a million people, 20 per cent of the Norwegian population, tuned in to the programme when it was aired during prime time on Friday night. But the angry responses started almost as soon as it had begun.
A top German court has ruled that people can sue their Internet providers for damages if connection is lost. The court has ruled that access to the Internet represents a basic need in modern society.
The complaint that brought about the ruling came from a man who lost his Internet connection for two months due to an administrative error caused by a takeover of his Internet provider by another company. He is now entitled to monetary compensation – and while the amount may not be very high, the ruling reflects an important shift. With it, Germany’s Federal Court of Justice has stated that Internet connection is a modern necessity, on par with the right to mobility.
The court compared the situation to a car owner claiming damages after someone else has caused an accident that renders the car unusable for some time.A ‘vital’ part of lifeAmong other reasons for the judgment, the Federal Court states that “the majority of German residents use the Internet on a daily basis. It has become a medium that plays a vital role in the lives of most people, and whose absence has a significant impact on daily life.”
SO: I was initially looking for a picture that was like “Go Germany!” then I thought of their love of Hoff. I was searching for something that possibly combined the two but then saw THIS & had to stop. I mean, it chose ME.
