Surprised he's only suing for $15K. Guy's serving 10 years and that's all he went for? Not that I agree with him or anything, I just found the amount he's going for is quite low.

Meanwhile, idiots like that in Texas are getting life in jail:

A repeat drunken driver from Lewisville blamed for an Easter morning wreck in which two people were killed has been sentenced to life in prison.

Barton has three other DWI convictions since 1997.

He's suing for more than $15,000, though it doesn't say how much. The family is suing for $15,000, which seems absurd. Why even file a lawsuit if that's all you are going to seek?

Neither is this:

Afghanistan dog hero accidentally euthanized

A dog rescued from Afghanistan after she alerted soldiers to a suicide bomber was accidentally euthanized at an Arizona shelter on Monday.

A Pinal County Animal Care and Control employee has been placed on administrative leave for failing to follow procedures and euthanizing the wrong dog.
...
Target's new owner, Army Sgt. Terry Young whose life was saved by the stray, helped bring the 2-ish-year-old from Afghanistan to her new home in Arizona. She disappeared from Young's home on Friday. Facebook postings requested help in finding her.

Animal Care and Control received a call about a stray female shepherd-mix dog in the San Tan Valley area on Friday. An animal control officer picked up the dog and brought her to the shelter where the dog stayed over the weekend. The dog was not microchipped or licensed with the county, shelter officials said.

On Monday morning, the employee mistakenly took the dog out of its pen and euthanized it. The dog was not scheduled for euthanasia.
...
Target was pregnant when she helped thwart the suicide bomber by attacking him. She had her litter of puppies in Afghanistan. Target's puppies have since been brought to the United States.

It'd be cool if we could use the technology to colonize other planets before we use it to destroy the earth but it's a lot easier to make bombs so this could be more scary than promising. :-?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.

Actually, now that I think about it, that probably belongs in its own thread. It's neither weird nor funny nor pointless.

It's quite important.

Well, that's the end of America (or as it will soon be called, Large Crater Number 8).

Weird

http://web.orange.co.uk/article/quirkie ... to_her_leg

Nine-year-old Ming Li lost her hand when she was run over by a tractor on her way to school in July.

But her arm was too badly damaged to reattach it to her wrist so doctors temporarily attached it to her right calf instead.
