Man calls 911 at least 12 times over bar bill

In the how to not use 911 category we have this story.
Post Falls police Capt. Pat Knight says an officer gave Phillip Poissonnier of Post Falls a ride home after he was kicked out of Club Tequila just after 1 a.m. Monday, The Associated Press reports.
But that wasn’t good enough for him. No he called 911 12 times asking police to come back so they can discuss his bar bill. It should be noted that the bartender showed the receet which shows that he payed $30 for the 10 beers he ordered. That means each beer was $3.
Well, now he faces a $1,000 fine and a year in jail. at the rate of beer consumption at $3 that would be 333.333333 beers.

statue of a bull with a peanus is gone

The statue is still there minus the peanus. People were unhappy that a statue of a bull had a peanus on it. They found that the large device was unbecoming.
The owner says he didn’t do it because his neighbers complained, he did it because he didn’t like it.
The owner of Barista’s Restaurant tells the Spectrum that he told the city: “I am not removing the penis for you or because of your complaints. I don’t like you. I’m doing it for me. I just decided it would look better without the weenie. And oh my God! It’s beautiful, Newser reports.
He doesn’t like the peanus because it “looks like a party hat” and that was not cool with him.
Ward says he paid $130,000 for the bull sculpture in Las Vegas, which he placed on a perch outside the restaurant. The outrage over the statue’s “party hat,” which led to a petition to revoke the restaurant’s license, was just the latest in a series of disputes between Ward and local residents, who declare that he is rood and has bad food and bad business practices.
He says that the bull and the debate has helped him from the amount of people coming into his store.
“I am having fun with all the attention and it’s brought in more customers,” he says.

what happens when you blindly follow GPS?

As if we need more reasons to not follow a GPS blindly here comes this story.
In East Chicago, Indiana, a man drove off a ramp to a bridge that no longer exists, injuring himself and killing his wife, the Times of Northwest Indiana reports. Mr. Iftikhar Hussain, 64, was the one who was behind the wheel when he drove off a bridge because his GPS told him to do so.
“The Cline Avenue bridge is marked with numerous barricades including orange barrels and cones, large wood signs stating ‘Road Closed’ with orange striped markings,” a sheriff’s rep says. “There are concrete barricades across the road to further indicate the road is closed.
Somehow he disregarded all of that and fell 38 feet killing his wife, Zohra, and causing his car to burst into flames.
