Where should chronic thieves be? Well walking among with us at any given retail establishment. Of course, California.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - An arson suspect accused of torching the Home Depot in San Jose was on a theft spree, and attempting to steal thousands of dollars in tools, officials said.

Dyllin Jaycruz Gogue, 27, of San Jose was charged with three counts of arson, seven counts of grand theft, and three counts of petty theft. He was arraigned Tuesday afternoon.

Not quite how the diversion was to work eh Dyllin?


Everything you wanted to know about world wide consumption of TP but were afraid to ask.

World Toilet Paper Consumption, Mapped

The environmental toll is massive. Logging for the type of paper used in toilet rolls affects over a million acres per year of priceless Canadian boreal forests alone, emitting upwards of 26 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and leaving 90 percent of the disturbed land exhausted. And that’s just one source. But sometimes, these statistics can be challenging to visualize. If you laid out all the rolls of toilet paper used in each nation in one year, what would that look like?

QS Supplies decided to reveal the impact toilet paper is having on the environment by finding out:

Toilet paper consumption per country in a year in both miles and km
The countries that use the most toilet paper are visualized in the solar system

Public transportation and the need for speed.

Flights might seem like the simplest mode of transport, but a ride on the fastest train in the world will challenge airplanes on travel time, not to mention efficiency. And while headlines may proclaim Japan’s L0 Maglev between Tokyo and Nagoya the fastest train ever, with a 313 mph average speed that cuts the time it takes to travel between the cities by half, it’s not scheduled to start service until 2027. So although there are faster ones in testing than those in this list of the fastest trains in the world, we’re only featuring high-speed rail currently in service, that you can actually ride right now.

Here are the world's fastest high-speed trains in commercial service, ranked by speed.


Well of course she did. Are we surprised? No.

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney celebrated a major fundraising haul last week when this year’s first-quarter filing eclipsed $10 million raised for the endangered lawmaker in a competitive primary. After Cheney raised more than $2.3 million this year alone, her campaign war chest with $6.8 million in cash on hand four months before the GOP contest headlined the swamp-focused Politico’s Playbook.

“In previous cycles, it was common for Cheney to raise a few hundred thousand dollars in a quarter, mostly from Wyoming residents,” the Playbook authors wrote on Monday last week, adding, “with the national attention her race has received, money has poured in from across the country.”


MSNBC, the ultimate clown network.

Let Africa deal with the Kung Flu without our interference. Looks like they know something we don't.

The White House on Monday announced a second global COVID-19 summit to discuss how to bolster vaccination rates internationally, despite data from around the world showing the mRNA and adenovirus-vector vaccines do not stop the spread of the virus, and appear to be associated with a higher rate of non-COVID deaths.

In a joint statement with Belize, Germany, Indonesia, and Senegal, the White House said the purpose of the summit, which is scheduled to be held virtually on May 12, will be to “redouble our collective efforts to end the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for future health threats.”

“The emergence and spread of new variants, like Omicron, have reinforced the need for a strategy aimed at controlling Covid-19 worldwide. Together, we can mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and protect those at the highest risk with vaccinations, testing, and treatments,” the statement said. “We know we must prepare now to build, sustain, and finance the global capacity we need, not only for emerging Covid-19 variants, but also future health crises.”


$24K for Jr. Kindergarten. Fvck it's called Head Start to us in the real world. Of course it's racial, everything is racial.

Michelle Obama’s brother and his wife, Craig and Kelly Robinson, are suing the private school their children attended, claiming their sons were kicked out in retaliation for their complaints about racial bias at the academy.

The Robinsons brought the action against the University School of Milwaukee on Monday, claiming their two young sons were expelled last year after the parents raised concerns about bias in the curriculum and mistreatment of students of color, they said during an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday.

I guess they are lousy parents. If you were going to spend that kind of money would you do some research on the school? Talk to some former and current student parents?

And why bring it to TV. Mike Errr I mean Michelle needs more attention?


Cradle to the grave mentality on display once again.

Education Department changes will bring 3.6 million people closer to loan forgiveness

Millions of student loan borrowers will be closer to debt forgiveness after a number of changes the U.S. Department of Education plans to make to the lending system.

The department made the announcement Tuesday, saying it plans to address “historical failures in the administration of the federal student loan programs.”

Those changes include reassessing the payment timelines for borrowers enrolled in income-driven repayment plans and public service loan forgiveness and making sure they’re on track for the eventual debt cancellation these programs lead to.


I don't need no stinkin' device.

A team of mechanical engineers at MIT recently developed an “Oreometer” to test the optimal way of separating the two halves of an Oreo cookie, so that the wafers and the creme filling inside remained unbroken.

It was an exercise in rheology, or the study of how matter flows. (They called this particular experiment “Oreology.”) The fluid in this case was the creme filling, a soft solid that the team classified as “mushy,” meaning it’s not very brittle (unlike a cracker) and is relatively soft (like bread).



April 19 (UPI) -- Doctors in Wisconsin were able to safely remove a tiny drill bit from inside a man's lung after he inhaled the tool while undergoing a procedure.

Tom Kozsi, 60, said he was getting a filling from a dentist in Illinois when he inhaled the tiny drill bit.

Genius Award Winner 1st Runner Up.

Boulder, Colo., authorities have identified a man arrested on suspicion of felony theft in an off-beat bicycle theft case.

On April Fools’ Day, a man walked into a bike shop in Boulder, toting a decidedly conspicuous kit.

What he did would have made a lot more sense if it was an elaborate joke — unfortunately for the individual, the charges he now faces are dead serious.

The man arrived at downtown Boulder’s Full Cycle bikes with a $12,000 e-bike with a flat tire, and bolt cutters sticking out of his backpack in plain sight.

Security cameras at the shop captured the individual’s blatant appearance. Shop owner Russ Chandler called the police, and within hours authorities arrested him.


I guess I'll feel safer now knowing she is no longer with the TSA. Genius Award Winner.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – On April 18, 2022, PCSO detectives arrested 34-year-old Taleta Collier of Winter Haven for Criminal Use of a Personal ID and Uttering a False Document after she created a fake police report to avoid repercussions for excessive tardiness at work.

On April 4, 2022, detectives were contacted by the Assistant Federal Security Director of Law Enforcement with the Federal Air Marshal Service after Collier, a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Officer submitted what appeared to be a fake PCSO burglary report.
