Like a Ferrari that got porked by a luck dragon.
So one of our two cats has been peeing outside the litter box. So to stop the cat I put a paper towel outside of the box. To catch which cat i put the baby camera on the litter boxes. Before I could turn on the camera one of the cats POOPED on the paper. FML
At least it was on the paper? - Spidra Webster
At least s/he didn't poop on the baby while you moved the camera? - Kristin
Hoping the problem is an easy fix (like changing out the litter box) and not a sign of a sick kitty. - vicster: full-bodied
Yeah wife says i have to bleach the litter box and failing that have the vet check for UTI. Oh well. I thought it was pretty funny. - Steve C Team Marina

Denver Broncos Safety Headbutts Cab Driver, Gets Cut By Team
"Denver Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was cut today after a Wednesday morning incident involving a scuffle with a cab driver. According to Denver police, Boyett, who was intoxicated at the time, punched and head-butted a cab driver before stealing a shovel from a nearby construction site and trying to bury himself in mulch. Killer hiding spot, dude. Based on the story from the Denver Post, Boyett comes off as a tad unhinged. After being arrested by the cops, Boyett "told arresting officers to 'contact his boss 'John Elway'' before repeatedly slamming his head into a patrol car window while yelling and spitting". Wow." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Dr.Oz-endorsed diet pill study was bogus, researchers admit - CBS News - http://www.cbsnews.com/news...
A diet study about the supposed benefits of green coffee bean extract, which got national attention after Dr. Oz promoted it on his TV show, has been retracted. The science watchdog website Retraction Watch reports that the two researchers who were paid to write the study admitted they could not verify the data. "The sponsors of the study cannot assure the validity of the data so we, Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham, are retracting the paper," the researchers said in a statement. The study was originally published in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy in 2012. In their work, the researchers claimed that that green coffee bean extract could help people lose weight without diet or exercise. However, federal regulators later discovered that key data, including the participants' weight measurements, appeared to have been altered. Dr. Oz touted the product on his show in May 2012 -- publicity that helped the manufacturer sell half a million bottles of the pills. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Trinidad and Tobago women's World Cup team goes from rags to riches - LA Times
"The Trinidad and Tobago women's team had flown in to play the top-ranked U.S. in their first World Cup qualifying match. But 13 of Waldrum's players were stranded at a taxi stand without enough money for a ride to their hotel. The players had left the island a day earlier without so much as a deflated soccer ball among them. At least one woman didn't even have a pair of cleats. And after buying dinner during a stopover at the Miami airport, the team was down to $15 a player. So Waldrum did what any tech-savvy soccer coach would do — he tweeted out a plea for help. "I really just expected it to reach some people in the area that would help me get through a day or two," he said. Instead, donations poured in from as far away as Singapore and Poland. Restaurants offered free meals, while local soccer fans contributed water, Gatorade, protein bars and practice uniforms. By late that afternoon, Waldrum had gathered nearly $10,000 in an account that would eventually top $16,000 – including $658 the equally strapped Haitian team raised through bake sales and barbecues." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"Even more incredible, though, is what happened next. After holding the U.S. to a goal in a 1-0 loss in the qualifying opener, narrow victories over Haiti and Guatemala have sent Trinidad and Tobago on to Friday's tournament semifinals outside Philadelphia, where a win over Costa Rica will make it the first Caribbean team in history to reach the Women's World Cup. (Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago have all represented the Caribbean in the men's tournament, with Trinidad qualifying in 2006.)" - Steve C Team Marina

9 UNC employees fired or disciplined in scandal
"More than 3,100 students -- nearly half of them athletes -- enrolled in classes they didn't have to show up for and received artificially inflated grades in what an investigator called a "shadow curriculum" that lasted nearly two decades at the University of North Carolina. The report released Wednesday by former high-ranking U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein found more far-reaching academic fraud than previous investigations by the school and the NCAA." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"It said athletics staffers steered athletes to classes that also became popular with fraternities and other everyday students looking for an easy grade. "By the mid-2000s, these classes had become a primary -- if not the primary -- way that struggling athletes kept themselves from having eligibility problems," the report said." - Steve C Team Marina

'GoodFellas' actor sues Fox, saying he created a 'Simpsons' character - LA Times
""GoodFellas" actor Frank Sivero sued Fox Studios on Tuesday for $250 million, claiming he was not compensated for "The Simpsons" using his likeness for mobster character Louie, a henchman of Fat Tony, who appears in numerous episodes dating to the early 1990s, according to court documents first obtained by Deadline. The lawsuit claims that the "Simpsons" character "was created and developed by Sivero, who based this character on his own personality." Sivero has appeared in numerous mobster films, including "The Godfather" and "The Godfather: Part II."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"Although the lawsuit acknowledges that “over the years, 'The Simpsons' were known for basing characters on the television series on those of real life people and real life characters,” it argues the Louie character has inflicted damages to Sivero in the form of lost wages. Louie has been voiced by two actors. Neither is Sivero. " - Steve C Team Marina

"Border Patrol agents fired their weapons in 960 encounters over the last eight years, according to Border Patrol records. Including Arevalo, 30 people were killed, with at least 10 of those in incidents alleged to involve rock-throwing and eight on the Mexican side of the border. Unlike domestic police departments, the 20,833-member Border Patrol — the federal government's largest law enforcement agency — releases almost no public information about shootings, including the outcome of any investigations.

'Airbender' tax credit shows how far states will go to woo filmmakers - LA Times
"What happened next was not unlike the magic on screen. The visual effects were largely produced in San Francisco, but the film studio was given a tax credit as though they had been done in Pennsylvania. Citing "special circumstances," the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development granted Paramount a waiver that allowed the studio to claim a 25% tax credit on $29 million in visual effects work performed outside the state, according to a Nov. 12, 2008, letter to Paramount obtained by the Los Angeles Times in a public records request. The waiver saved the studio about $7 million. Or, put another way, it cost Pennsylvania that much in lost tax revenue." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
To woo any big business, really. The tax breaks system is like the credit based economy, imo. It snowballed and got all backwards.

$680,000 Home Wrong Lot: Dream Florida Beach House Built On Wrong Lot
"A $680,000 home was built on the wrong lot, leaving the new owners with quite a headache. According to The SpreadIt, Mark and Brenda Voss of Missouri wanted to build a fancy home near Palm Coast, right near the water. They hired a building company and got their plans underway. However, the company ended up building the beautiful home on the lot across the street… Oops? The beach house is absolutely stunning. It has “5.5 bathrooms, a home theater, game room and screened-in pool,” but it’s in the wrong location. The lot that the house was built on belongs to a couple from North Carolina. Andrew Massaro and Brooke Triplett now have a beautiful home on their property… that they didn’t put there. The $680,000 home on the wrong lot story gets even more interesting. Apparently the Voss’ — who own a “well-established” real estate company — own 18 different lots in the gated community. Unfortunately, their builders picked one lot that didn’t belong to them. According to FOX News, Mark and his wife are in “total disbelief” that something like this even happened." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
