Pittsburgh's Finest Break Wind

This is the best photo ever from the G-20 summit, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers:

As Jim Croce sang,

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind

Also, you don't lob tear gas canisters into the wind. Just saying...

You have the right to remain silent. In fact, we demand it.

Great Tits

There's nothing like great tits. And now, from the world of research, we know more about how to keep them great.

According to an article in the New York Times, distributor of "all the news that's fit to print", we learn that Great Tits, those perky little songbirds, have moved beyond the typical diet of seeds, insects, berries and fruits, and have taken up pecking and eating small bats.

They actually attack the bats while they're hibernating. Imagine it, you're sleeping, and get woken up by some great tits.

Life doesn't get much better than that!

How People Find My Blog

I always enjoy finding out how people find Scott's Spot. There have been alot of people searching for Usain Bolt information and photos lately, so they've been finding one of my previous posts.

But today, I got a great hit by someone searching for photocopies of butts. Looking at the screen capture, you can see that they're starting at hit #60, which means that they're looking hard for just the right butt photocopy photo.

This is exactly the kind of person we're looking for at Scott's Spot.

Hampton School District Flunks Civics

Tomorrow, the President of the United States will address the country's school students. He plans to urge America’s schoolchildren to dream big dreams, respect their teachers, to study hard and learn from failure.

It's the kind of message that students need to hear. But not at Hampton Township School District, in Allison Park, PA. Hampton's website posted a message informing residents that "Hampton Township School District will not broadcast President Obama's live speech on Tuesday to any of our students. Further, it will not be shown at any time to students in Grades K through 8."

The notice further notes that after review, some or all of the speech, if appropriate, may be considered for inclusion in social studies classes, although, if included, students will be allowed to opt out.

You just scored a big red F in Civics, Hampton.

Another Blow to Peace in the Middle East

According to articles in CNN and Yahoo, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has approved the construction of 455 housing units in the West Bank.

That's a sure way to slow down or derail the peace process, in which Israel doesn't seem to have the slightest interest.

And, by the way, how is it that the Defense Minister is
the one approving this?

51 Ways To Leave Your (Former) Lover

When you've gotta go, you've gotta go, I guess. But you should do it in a reasonably easy way. And certainly in an easier way than Anthony Miller did it.

Miller says he robbed a bank in Ephrata, PA, in 2007, because he wanted to leave his then-wife but she had threatened to commit suicide if he did. According to Robert Beyer, Miller's defense attorney, Miller approached tellers with a BB gun, asked for money and told them to call the police. He said Mr. Miller even asked for updates on their efforts to reach authorities.

Mr. Miller pleaded guilty in June. Lancaster County Judge Louis Farina sentenced him to three to six years in prison yesterday.
Mr. Beyer says the couple divorced within the past year.
