A Saturday Smorgasbord

All the weird news that's fit to link:
  • A guy in Mansfield thought his neighbor had too much junky stuff outside her house (an old basketball goal, a tetherball pole, etc.), so he offered them for free on Craigslist, posting the neighbor's address and everything. When the neighbor saw someone drive up and try to take the stuff, she was not amused. (Extra Hall of Shame bonus points: The Craigslisting neighbor is an Arlington police officer. To protect and to serve, indeed.)

  • A woman in New York was charged with stealing around $12 million in gold and jewelry from her jewelry-company job over the last several years. (Her methods were decidedly low-tech; she stashed the stuff in the lining of her purse.)

  • Contrary to what some people think, you can't contract swine flu by eating pork. But some pig farmers are afraid--justifiably so, as it turns out--that their pigs might catch the disease from people
  • No matter what happens to me regarding my recent injury, I hope I never have to wear horse legs.
It's a busy day, with the "marathon" concert at my college tonight; hopefully, I'll get caught up on more posts tomorrow.
