Odd Spot #21.


Saturday, August 30, 2014

A Nebraska man wanted for violating his parole was arrested after a video of him taking the ALS Bucket Challenge exposed his whereabouts. Jesean Morris - convicted in 2010 for attempted second-degree assault using a firearm - is back in the cooler after he posted a Facebook video of himself being doused in ice water.

Customers have rallied to 12-year-old TJ Guerrero's aid because a neighbour was his lemonade stand shut. Doug Wilkey, 61, of Dunedin, Florida, told the local council he wants the stand shut because it was causing excessive traffic, rubbish, illegal parking and noise. TJ made US$600 in two hours after news of the stoush broke.

The US Treasury Department has given entertainers Jay-Z and Beyoncé the all-clear for their fifth anniversary trip to Cuba last year. Treasury ruled the visit was "educational" because they visited an art school and theatre group. The US has an embargo that makes it illegal for its citizens to visit Cuba as tourists.

    I know the skin of a brindled Irish Wolfhound is the same color as their hair. Haven't been that up close and personal to a zebra to tell if they are the same or not!

    Must be nice to have money like Jay-Z and Beyoncé - their trip to Cuba is labelled "educational" because they visisted a museum? Gee, can I get reimbursed for an educational trip to Paris and the Louvre?
