    I haven't watched the clip yet but in his autobiography he says he 'gave Hitler the finger and he still has it' :)

    Met him at a convention once in NYC. He was just sitting there at a card table and I got to chat with him a couple of minutes and get an autograph. Nice, sweet man, absolutely unpretentious. Glad I had the chance.

    An alligator is swimming in a Texas lake with a knife in its head

    [​IMG]

    A Texas woman who took a photo of a live alligator with a knife in its head said she and her neighbors are concerned about the animal's well-being.

    The gator was spotted in the Orchard Lakes Estates, Houston ABC station KTRK reported.

    "I feel like somebody did this on purpose," said Erin Weaver, who took the photo of the animal.
    The photo of the alligator with the knife in its head had been circulating on social media, and neighbors who saw it wanted to help.


    "I don't want to see an alligator swimming around with a knife in his head and suffering," Weaver added.

    According to Weaver, a Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden is expected to evaluate the alligator on Monday.

    Brazos Bend State Park Attendant Chris Bishop told KRTK the gator isn't in pain and could live with the knife in its head for some time.

    Weaver, who has been living in the community for six years, told KRTK she sees alligators "almost every morning."


    "Never have I seen them aggressive or even defensive," she added. "If you walk by and startle them, they just go under water."

    I don't belong to FB so the video isn't available to me. I gotta ask though....

    How the hell does he know if the gator is feeling any pain and why are they waiting until Monday to "evaluate" the gator?

    The magician was not only to be blindfolded, but his hands and legs were also to be tied up.

    Before the plunge, he was asked by a local photographer why he risked his life for magic.
    Lahiri responded, according to the BBC: “If I can free myself it will be magic, if I cannot, it will be tragic.”

    The police appear to have been negligent in not identifying the "John Doe" through fingerprints.

    It's kind of interesting I've never been in the part of the river, there are parts that are dry but to go running in it? Considering he was flat out busted I think he might have done himself in (those are those kind of escapades that once your busted in get about having no life anymore.

    Jeez - how can you put 100+ pounds of meat anywhere and let it decompose without any smell ? Maybe that's letting us know what the rest of the No Frills supermarket was like
