Fried Kool-Aid a hit at fair

19 Jun

 

 

The deep-fried Kool-Aid is selling like deep-fried hot cakes, according to their famed creator, “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian.

Chicken Charlie’s is a staple of fried rations at fairs across the country. It sold 400 to 600 orders of deep-fried Kool-Aid per day the first weekend of the San Diego County Fair. That’s about double the rate of previous debut items, Boghosian said.

“That’s because it tastes so darn good,” Boghosian said of the Kool-Aid.

The deep-fried novelty takes the shape of a doughnut-hole. There are five per order. That breaks down to as much as 9,000 balls of deep-fried Kool-Aid eaten over opening weekend.

Boghosian said Chicken Charlie’s has already gone through 150 pounds of Kool-Aid powder and 1,500 pounds of flour. Chicken Charlie’s debuted deep-fried Klondike Bars and Pop Tarts in past years.

Portland draining reservoir after man urinates in it

16 Jun

Oregon’s Portland Water Bureau is draining an 8 million-gallon reservoir after surveillance cameras caught a man urinating into it this week.

The move will cost the water bureau $35,000 – $28,000 in lost revenue and $7,500 in disposal costs, CNN affiliate KATU-TV reports.

Is that worth it when the urine involved is really a drop in the bucket?

Scientifically, no, said Dave Stone, an assistant professor of toxicology at Oregon State University, who spoke to The Oregonian newspaper about the, er, leak.

“How many animals are doing that or birds?” Stone asked. “I don’t want to second-guess the city, but I can’t think of anything chemically that would have me be concerned.”

Dr. Gary Oxman, a Multnomah County health officer, also told The Oregonian: “The health risk associated with that is really, really tiny.”

A healthy bladder holds up to 16 ounces of urine, according to the National Institutes of Health.

This makes little to no sense to me. The reservoir is an open pond in the middle of the woods  and it’s not enclosed/protected  in any way besides a fence. Animals swim in it and release their waste in the water. Why would you drain the lake because a man urinates in it? Maybe I am not understanding.

Fake plastic surgeon carried out breast exams in bars

18 Nov

 

 

A woman posed as a physician and duped at least two other women into undergoing breast exams at her hands in Boise-area nightclubs, according to police.Kristina Ross, 37, remains in the Ada County Jail on two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license. An Idaho judge set bond at $100,000 on Wednesday.Police said Ross introduced herself to victims — one at a downtown Boise bar and the other at a nightclub in a Boise suburb — as a plastic surgeon named Berlyn Aussieahshowna, a name that turned out to be bogus.The two women told Boise officers they believed Ross was a physician because of her apparent medical knowledge, and they agreed to undergo what they thought were breast exams, which happened at the bars.As part of her ruse, Ross allegedly gave the women the telephone number of a real licensed plastic surgeon in Boise, the state capital, authorities said.

Woman Kills Baby For Interrupting Farmville Session

28 Oct

 

A 22 year-old woman from Jacksonsville, Florida has pleaded guilty to killing her baby son over a game of…Farmville.

Alexandra V. Tobias says her three-month old child, Dylan Lee Edmondson, had been crying while she was trying to play the popular Facebook casual game. This angered Tobias, who told authorities that she shook the baby, had a cigarette to calm herself down, then shook him again. It’s believed he “may have hit his head during the shaking”.

Dylan’s death was classified as second-degree murder, a charge that carries the possibility of a life sentence in prison.
