  •  A funny aside - we checked into the campground (7+ / 0-)

    at Doran and they now have smoke free signs up. Excuse me - you gonna tell me I can't smoke in the park but you have firepits at all the campsites? Hello? Pretty sure that I could not possibly smoke enough cigarettes in my lifetime to make up for one night of a campfire. Fortunately they do not seem to be enforcing.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      I know some people who spend as much for tobacco products each month as they pay for rent!

      fire hazard and litter problem as anything else.

      There's a whole class of jackass smokers who mysteriously think it's de rigueur to leave their spent butts lying around, sometimes smoldering. It's a very peculiar aspect of smoker culture. I always wonder, what kind of a dick throws a cig into a urinal, so that somebody else has to clean up after him? I think it's related to marking territory.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

        Butts in urinals are such a deadly threat?

        Marking territory?

        What kind of fool leaves their gun lying around... so that somebody else has to clean up their mess?

        Columbus police: Gun found in Toys “R” Us bathroom

        A gun was found in the bathroom of Toys “R” Us Tuesday night, Columbus police said.

        Reports state a customer found the pistol about 7:45 p.m. in the men's bathroom of the Columbus Park Crossing store. The black Springfield Armory gun was found in a belt-type holster. There were 13 rounds in the clip.

        The pistol, ammo and holster were handed over to the police’s Property and Evidence Division, reports state.

        Child finds loaded gun in bathroom at Wal-Mart
        Deputy S.A. Moore responded to Wal-Mart on U.S. 50 west of Winchester on March 26 for a report of a loaded firearm found in a women's restroom. Store employee Seth Flickinger's 12-year-old daughter found the firearm on top of the toilet paper dispenser, according to a criminal complaint filed in the case in Frederick County General District Court on Monday.

        "[Flickinger] had her retrieve it and turn it over to him, then he turned it in to the customer service desk," the complaint states. "The firearm, a .38-caliber Taurus ultra lite revolver, was loaded when it was found."

        Costello returned to Wal-Mart to try to locate her gun and was told it had been turned over to the Sheriff's Office, according to the complaint. Costello went to the Sheriff's Office headquarters, showed proof of ownership and the gun was returned to her.

        Secret Service agent's GUN found in bathroom of Romney's plane by reporter

        A Secret Service agent on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign plane accidentally left a gun in the plane's bathroom.

        The gun was discovered in the restroom by a CBS News/National Journal reporter traveling with Romney shortly before he departed the Republican convention in Florida to address the American Legion convention in Indianapolis on Wednesday.

        Because of her actions, the member of Mr Romney’s security detail has been removed from the campaign trip.
