Bigfoot ‘DNA Evidence’ ?

InformationWeek

A group of self-described “Bigfoot hunters” that claim to have found the dead body of one of the legendary bipeds said they plan to hold a press conference [today, Feb. 15, 2008] at which they will present DNA evidence to prove the creature’s existence.

The press conference is scheduled for noon Pacific time at a hotel in Palo Alto, Calif. “DNA evidence and photo evidence of the creature will be presented,” said the Bigfoot hunters, in a statement on their Web site.

Been rear ended? That’s a parking ticket for you.

Crashed car gets parking fine

A motorist was given a [$100]  ticket for bad parking when her car was shunted into a tree by another driver.

Joanne Billington was fined by an overzealous traffic warden after her Ford Ka, which she’d left parked, was hit by another driver.

“I was absolutely devastated,” the 27-year-old told Metro. “I just couldn’t believe what had happened. It was obvious the car had been crashed into but I still got a fine. It’s unbelievable that the attendant had the gall to issue one.”

Amazingly, despite the front end of the car being in the bushes, the traffic warden claimed he thought it had been parked that way.

………………………..

The fine was later waived but only after publicity about the “functionally impaired” traffic warden.

Globular cluster? Nope.

Globular cluster in a field of stars? Nope. It's a beam of sunlight coming through a stippled glass window.
