WWE Staff Forced To Shoot Aggressive Wrestler After Child Climbs Into Steel Cage

INDIANAPOLIS—Saying they were left with no other choice given the imminent peril of the situation, World Wrestling Entertainment officials confirmed they were forced to kill one of their own stars Friday when a 7-year-old boy wandered into the steel cage enclosure of an aggressive wrestler.

Beloved two-time WWE champion Big Show was reportedly shot dead after the emergency response team at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum made a split-second decision to take out the nearly 400-pound dominant male wrestler, who is said to have appeared aggravated and hostile, causing those present to fear for the small child’s safety. theONION

Well that will teach me not to log on right after dinner. Wonder why they wouldn't let the bastard:mad: on the train with the cat in the first place?

Well, let's balance things out with a good kitty story:

'Cat Hero' rescues kitten from Hillsborough River

TAMPA (FOX 13) - A very scared, but very lucky kitten was saved after falling into the water at Tampa Riverwalk Saturday.

Tampa police officers tried to coax the orange tabby from the Kennedy Boulevard bridge over the Hillsborough River, but it backed up and fell over the side, right into the path of his rescuer.:) FOX13 NEWS

The only animals allowed on public transportation are service dogs or legitimate therapy dogs, and that's because of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act.) It's because there are far more people either afraid of or allergic to cats than dogs. Besides, the kitten probably wasn't in an appropriate carrier (that's why I don't bring my "service :kitty:" to any of my appointments or classes.) I'm supposed to be with her 24/7 (diabetes) but one has to abide by the laws. I would have to have a horse in order to abide by the ADA regulations (wouldn't want to have one on public transportation, though, miniature or otherwise.)

I apologize for the depressing article that I posted. :(

I can half see the rationale, but a kitten? I mean some domestic airlines will even allow you to remove your cat from it's crate in the cabin. I'd venture to say, cat owners probably have enough residual cat dander on themselves to produce an allergic reaction in those predisposed, whether their fuzzy friends are with them or not!;)

Finding headlines like this interesting these day...

Toyota to add luxury HiLux

Toyota Australia sales and marketing chief Tony Cramb told Drive the company was happy with the performance of the TRD package and admitted it exposed an area of the market, for premium utes at the $60,000 mark, that the brand could exploit. Currently the top-of-the-range HiLux is the SR5 4x4, priced from $54,390 (plus on-road costs) leaving room for the brand to expand upwards.

Good Samaritan targeted, beaten after helping lost toddler

A Florida man who police said was trying to help a missing toddler locate her parents over the weekend ended up beaten and shamed on social media by the child's family members after they mistook him for a kidnapper, according to a report.

The police department said it "thoroughly investigated" the incident and concluded that the man committed no crime.

However, he ended up being attacked by the child's father, who admitted to punching him repeatedly, according to ABC affiliate WFTS.

"When I got there, I just swung on him," the father told WFTS. He acknowledged that he really didn't know whether the man was looking to kidnap his daughter but he said he doesn't regret assaulting him.

Wife's mom and step dad live in the Santa Monica area so this caught my eye this morning.

It's hard to believe but a condo could be lost to squatters:

About 17 years ago I inherited my father’s mortgage-free town house in Southern California. I intentionally kept the unit vacant mainly because I didn’t want to deal with tenants.

Then last week I visited my unit but the locks were changed, and when I peeked through a window it looked occupied! The homeowner association’s manager said she thought the occupants were the new owners because they had been living there, paying the homeowner association fees, attending board meetings and voting.

Squatters and squatters rights are part of our national heritage...created many a fortune throughout our history.....and your country too, no?

From pioneers simply moving in on land and occupation equating to ownership (if you are willing to protect it) to land races and giveaways if ranches and mine claims..

I'd be interested.to see where it ends up.

Well yeah. Down here if you occupy a house unchallenged for 12 to 15 years, pay your own taxes and what not, it is sometimes possible to claim ownership. That and anyone who has the stones to occupy a fenced off portion of the interior for any length of time, pretty much owns it. Unless you're Aboriginal. Then they'll likely steal it out from under you at some point.

Talking Southern California though. Some of those townhouse condos go for over a $1,000,000. Talk about stones. Then, why would anybody abandon a $1,000,000 home for 13 years, without so much as ringing up property management now and then? Seems a bit fishy to me. Don't know if there'll be a follow up story though. It was in the Q & A section.
