There’s a new Royal Heinzness in town. Move over KetchupQueen, or she will just shove you over, & then probably kick you.   :o

This is more of a sad story than a weird one (& a cautionary one - do not try this at home, on the road, in an empty field with nothing within 100 yards, or anywhere else). But I couldn't find another thread that it would fit into.

Are there really people who don't know better? :(

If you’re having trouble recognizing your kids lately, this may be why.  :o

Here’s one more thing to tell them “Don’t try this at home – or anywhere else.” This is more scary than weird, but that doesn't take away the weirdness. It also seems weird that the first hospital didn’t send the kid in an ambulance. His parents must have been out of their minds, & the hospital might be considered liable if they’d had an accident because they were so distracted. :(

This doesn’t sound like something I want to try at all, whether on Frontrunner from South Jordan to Salt Lake or Delta from San Francisco to Amsterdam.  ::)

How scared would you have to be to take refuge by climbing a 40-foot cactus?  :o

It's one thing to climb up a 40-foot cactus, & quite another to have one come into your car  :o  (by implicit invitation, in this case, as the driver as being investigated for possible impaired driving, which is another way of saying you make your choices & take the conssequences).

Not so much weird news as sad news:

As many of you know, Utah passed the Medical Cannabis Act last November. My niece, who is in high school, had a part time job delivering lettuce for a local farm. My neice is now out of a job because the farm just tore out their entire lettuce crop and re-planted with marijuana. An alfalfa farm near my wife's parents did the same thing with their alfalfa fields. I wonder how many people didn't realize that food crops would be replaced with marijuana when they voted for the Cannabis Act. <Sigh> I suppose it's better than Utah's market being slammed by the "Big Weed" growers from out of state...
