More Arkansas Dead Birds?

 

I caught this on my Facebook page. Thought maybe some of you might want to see what is going on. This incident has apparently taken place today in Conway, Arkansas. If anyone has more information, please comment. It was posted by the meteorologist, Todd Yakoubian.  Can’t help thinking of my Beebe report from 2011:

Also, in Hot Springs:

Strange rumbling sound in Arkansas?

I have been recuperating from surgery recently, so I am still in the recovery stage; however, something strange happened to us last night. I am hoping to find others hearing this noise.

JM and I went outside. It was approximately 2:30 am. We heard a low-level rumbling sound. I attempted to record this, but my phone wasn’t good enough to capture the sounds. This went on for awhile; it was at least a half-hour. We went to bed as the rumbling was still occurring. It was NOT a train…I have no idea what this sound was.

I have looked online, and it does appear that people in Louisiana and Mississippi have heard this low-level rumbling. Some hear trumpets, booms, etc. I am in southern Arkansas, for the record.

I have a VERY good audio recorder…a Zoom recorder that picks up low-level noise. I have charged it up and have my good camera charged up, also, for any video. If I hear this sound again, I will attempt to capture it. The Zoom is excellent; we have used it for paranormal research.

Maybe somebody else has heard it? Maybe? We could be going nuts. Just wondering if any other Arkansans are experiencing this. As I said, if I capture the sound, I will post it.

It’s starting to get freaky out there. After hearing the “rumbling”, my ears started ringing and I had difficulty in getting to sleep.

I was feeling off and on rumbles after that munitions explosion in Louisiana, our house shook from that. Nothing like last night, though, as this was more constant.

Stay safe out there, guys.

Booze for Your Boobs Kicks Off in Singapore

*FREE BOTTLE OF BOOZE POUR MOI*

Boobs, hooters, melons, and tatas—they all refer to those luscious pair of lumpy cushions jutting out every woman’s shirt. I say luscious because every man (or at least every straight one) craves nothing more than to lay his eyes on a big pair of boobs.

It is in fact this very dream that inspired the OverEasy nightclub in Singapore to organize an event officially titled “Fill My Cups,” but better known as “Booze for Your Boobs.”

The ingenious ploy—clearly contrived by one of their very sex-deprived managers—basically states that women with big boobs get freeze booze.

The way it works is like this:

Girls with A-Cup boobs get one free drink.

Girls with B-Cup boobs get two free drinks.

Girls with C-Cup boobs get three free drinks.

And girls with big old D-Cup torpedo boobs or larger get an entire bottle of dranky drank worth $168!

To keep things fair, there will be both a male judge and a female judge.

Representing the Ladies is Karen, a lawyer who works for The Lo & Behold Group, which manages the OverEasy nightclub. On the men’s side is DJ D-CUP, whose name was, in fact, the original inspiration for the whole event.

The scheme has thus far drawn rave reviews from the men, but mixed reactions from the Ladies.

Some women, such as 19-year-old Yvonne, believe that the event is degrading: “I think the concept is funny but I would not degrade myself by being a part of it.”

Local student Lek Ning, however, sees the brilliance of such an endeavor because, as she so eloquently stated, “I’m rather proud of my assets.”

Cheryl Ho, spokeswoman for The Lo & Behold Group, defends the event, stating, “Our stance is that it’s all good fun, not sexist, not sleazy. No girls are going to get touched and we are not asking them to flash themselves.”

It works for Marty Gras and ‘Girls Gone Wild,’ so why can’t it work for a Singapore nightclub? Thumbs up or Thumbs Down? Tell us what you think.

Spate of ‘zombie’ attacks hit road signs

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. — Pranksters in at least three states are messing with electronic road signs meant to warn motorists of possible traffic problems by putting drivers on notice about zombies and raptors. Highway officials aren’t amused.

The latest breach came Tuesday morning near the St. Louis suburb of Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign on southbound Interstate 255 to read, “Daily Lane Closures Due To Zombies.”

A day earlier in Indiana’s Hamilton County, the electronic message in a construction zone warned drivers of “Raptors Ahead — Caution.”

The incidents follow one in Austin on Jan. 26 in which a sign on Lamar Boulevard was reprogrammed to flash: “Nazi Zombies! Run!!!” and “Caution! Zombies! Ahead!!!”

Officials in Illinois say they are concerned the signs distract motorists from heeding legitimate hazards down the road. The hacked sign Tuesday had warned drivers of crews replacing guardrails.

Some Web sites, such as Jalopnik.com, have published tutorials on “How to Hack an Electronic Road Sign,” reputedly as a way to alert traffic safety officials to security holes. Jalopnik urges its readers not to put the lesson to practice.

“Hacking generally is about showing where there are holes in security systems, and I think this is a great example of that,” said the site’s editor-in-chief, Ray Wert. “We’re trying to make clear this is an issue that needs to be confronted by traffic safety and transportation officials.”

16 illegals sue Arizona rancher

*TOTAL INSANITY.*

An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.

His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as “the avenue of choice” for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally.

Trial continues Monday in the federal lawsuit, which seeks $32 million in actual and punitive damages for civil rights violations, the infliction of emotional distress and other crimes. Also named are Mr. Barnett’s wife, Barbara, his brother, Donald, and Larry Dever, sheriff in Cochise County, Ariz., where the Barnetts live. The civil trial is expected to continue until Friday.

The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.

Attorneys for the immigrants – five women and 11 men who were trying to cross illegally into the United States – have accused Mr. Barnett of holding the group captive at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose on them and saying he would shoot anyone who tried to escape.

The immigrants are represented at trial by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), which also charged that Sheriff Dever did nothing to prevent Mr. Barnett from holding their clients at “gunpoint, yelling obscenities at them and kicking one of the women.”

In the lawsuit, MALDEF said Mr. Barnett approached the group as the immigrants moved through his property, and that he was carrying a pistol and threatening them in English and Spanish. At one point, it said, Mr. Barnett’s dog barked at several of the women and he yelled at them in Spanish, “My dog is hungry and he’s hungry for buttocks.”

The lawsuit said he then called his wife and two Border Patrol agents arrived at the site. It also said Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.

In March, U.S. District Judge John Roll rejected a motion by Mr. Barnett to have the charges dropped, ruling there was sufficient evidence to allow the matter to be presented to a jury. Mr. Barnett’s attorney, David Hardy, had argued that illegal immigrants did not have the same rights as U.S. citizens.

Mr. Barnett told The Washington Times in a 2002 interview that he began rounding up illegal immigrants after they started to vandalize his property, northeast of Douglas along Arizona Highway 80. He said the immigrants tore up water pumps, killed calves, destroyed fences and gates, stole trucks and broke into his home.

Some of his cattle died from ingesting the plastic bottles left behind by the immigrants, he said, adding that he installed a faucet on an 8,000-gallon water tank so the immigrants would stop damaging the tank to get water.

Mr. Barnett said some of the ranch´s established immigrant trails were littered with trash 10 inches deep, including human waste, used toilet paper, soiled diapers, cigarette packs, clothes, backpacks, empty 1-gallon water bottles, chewing-gum wrappers and aluminum foil – which supposedly is used to pack the drugs the immigrant smugglers give their “clients” to keep them running.

He said he carried a pistol during his searches for the immigrants and had a rifle in his truck “for protection” against immigrant and drug smugglers, who often are armed.

ASSOCIATED PRESS DEFENDANT: Roger Barnett said he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.

A former Cochise County sheriff´s deputy who later was successful in the towing and propane business, Mr. Barnett spent $30,000 on electronic sensors, which he has hidden along established trails on his ranch. He searches the ranch for illegal immigrants in a pickup truck, dressed in a green shirt and camouflage hat, with his handgun and rifle, high-powered binoculars and a walkie-talkie.

His sprawling ranch became an illegal-immigration highway when the Border Patrol diverted its attention to several border towns in an effort to take control of the established ports of entry. That effort moved the illegal immigrants to the remote areas of the border, including the Cross Rail Ranch.

“This is my land. I´m the victim here,” Mr. Barnett said. “When someone´s home and loved ones are in jeopardy and the government seemingly can´t do anything about it, I feel justified in taking matters into my own hands. And I always watch my back.”
