Gee all We had, was a Fork in the middle of the road, it's in Southwest Pasadena California, and the fork has a permanent permit to stay too.

It does, but, that is an old photo. It is now in a different spot on that traffic island. That photo was from when it was a guerilla art instillation.

It is located at the fork of Pasadena and St. John just south of Bellefontaine. The group behind it now hosts an annual food drive. https://www.facebook.com/PutTheForkInHunger/

Hostage Johan Gustafsson, held by al-Qaeda in Mali since 2011, has been freed, the Swedish government says.
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-40407620
It was during a motorcycle vacation through Africa that the Swede was kidnapped in the town of Timbuktu by the terrorist group al-Qaida's North African branch Aqim. Since then, he has been in jail with the group along with Stephen Malcolm McGowan from South Africa.
Gustafsson was biking together with Sjaak Rijke from the Netherlands and Stephen Malcom McGowan from South Africa. All three were kidnapped simultaneously. In connection with this, a German citizen was also killed.

I wonder why they choose going through Mali on their way to South Africa...
Well I guess some like adventurous vacations...

I've been banging ob about general lack of parenting skills for a couple of years now. Gives me no pleasure to read about this though, even if I'm not totally surprised.

Thank you, my point entirely.

YouTube stunt with gun leaves boyfriend dead in Halstad, Minnesota

HALSTAD, Minn. (KMSP) - In what family members describe as a YouTube stunt gone wrong, a 22-year-old man from Halstad, Minnesota is dead and his pregnant girlfriend is charged with manslaughter.

Around 6:30 p.m. Monday night, Norman County sheriff’s deputies responded to the 500 block of U.S. Highway 75 on a report of a shooting. Life-saving efforts were made and a medical helicopter was called, but 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ruiz’s girlfriend, 19-year-old Monalisa Perez, has been charged with second-degree manslaughter. According to the criminal complaint, Perez said Ruiz wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting into a book held to his chest, and he believed the book would stop the bullet. Ruiz convinced Perez to participate in the stunt by showing her a different book he had shot, and the bullet did not go all the way through.

Perez told investigators she fired a 50 caliber handgun from about one foot away while Ruiz held the book to his chest. The book did not stop the bullet, and Ruiz was killed by a single gunshot wound to his chest.

The girlfriend is pregnant, so once the baby is born he will no longer be eligible.

Parenting skills?

You seem to have a fixation about youth as well as parenting.

Have you not told us that you have a step-sister in Canada?

Man sits on gun, shoots self in (man parts)
JACKSONVILLE, Florida
A 38-year-old Jacksonville man accidentally shot himself in the (man parts) when he sat down on his gun, a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report said.

According to the JSO report, the man's girlfriend told police he was sitting outside his Freedom Crossing Trail apartment in a car before he ran inside in a panic.

His girlfriend approached him in the bathroom and saw that he had a gunshot wound.

He said he accidentally set the firearm off when he sat on it in the driver's seat, his girlfriend told police.

She drove him to Memorial Hospital, where JSO impounded the vehicle for evidence.

JSO did not say what type of gun was involved.

The man required immediate surgery, JSO said.

No one was harmed during the production
of this motion picture. However, Xena's ability
to recover her body was severely impeded by
Lucy Lawless' unexpected mishap.



Now I need to look that one up too.
