Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

Why not have a thread for news stories that aren't important enough to have their own thread? Weird stories. Dumb stories. Stories that make you only slightly mad - not full-out aggro or even peevish, just, you know, irritated. Stupid things Sarah Palin does. Etc.

Here, I'll start.

U.K. Science Minister Torpedoes 'Boaty McBoatface' As Ship Name : The Two-Way : NPR

This aggression shall not stand.

Shippy McShipface needs to be a freighter that only ships veer and alcohol so the sailors can all get "Shitfaced on Shipface".

He must be doing it wrong:

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to sign resolution calling porn a 'health hazard'

You know, I just couldn't resist reading shit's fucked up (I did try) especially after having just posted about shit being fucked up.

See that invisible locked door in my head? Whatever you do, don't open it. Just get the fuck out.

Man from the future steals food from Arby's

Quote:
Police say at approximately 10:45 a.m. they responded to the area of 9020 S. Western to a disturbance. Police spoke with employees of a Carl's Junior who said a man, later identified as Anderson, walked into their restaurant and began screaming and demanding food. Employees were able to get Anderson to leave and he walked across the street to Arby's.

The Arby's manager told police Anderson jumped on the front counter and demanded food. The man then jumped off the counter and allegedly grabbed the manager and forced her towards a wall. The manager told police the man then grabbed a hand full of bacon and chicken and walked out of the business.

On his way out, Anderson allegedly broke a glass door on the business. Oklahoma City Police Department MSgt. Gary Knight says Anderson was possibly under the influence.

"He was possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic or intoxicant or suffering from some type of break with reality. He did mention that he is from four years in the future and that is how people will get food during that period of time," Knight said.
OMG you guys I think this means that Trump wins....

Luckless sailor finally sells boat

Quote:
Rescue teams from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and Cornwall had been called out to nine different incidents involving the duo since they set off from Norway last July.

Two rescues by Norwegian and Danish teams, once when the propeller shaft was damaged and the second time when the battery failed

Two rescues in Scotland after running aground and having more propeller problems

They were assisted in Northern Ireland when the vessel ran aground

They called a lifeboat when the boat ran aground in the Republic of Ireland

Two rescues in Cornwall, after a mechanical problem and when one of the men got into difficulty rowing to the yacht

The ninth callout was made when the boat tipped over causing a fire on board


The pair had planned to sail the boat to the US, but Mr Weise quit in February due to "personal reasons", Mr Shapiro said.
Well sad, I suppose not every dream is meant to come t-

Quote:
Undeterred by the saga, Mr Shapiro said he had bought a 40ft (12m) yacht in the US state of Maine and planned to sail the east coast of the US with friends.
Oh my GOD no....no, NO NOOOOO just STOP IT ALREADY! STOPPPPP IT RIGHT NOW!!!! Don't you get it yet? You don't know how to handle a boat. You are the worst &%@$ing sailor on Earth. Learn when the universe is telling you to knock off that shiznit already.

I swear to god this guy is not going to give it up until he gets either himself or someone else killed. And I'm not even that sure he'll stop after the latter.

Wow... I spent years on boats (literally) and I would not know a single incident, where we needed rescue. This guy should not sail... Or row... Or do anything on a boat

It's definitely not a good thing when Knox-Johnston himself is telling you to stop.

So MTV did a Prince tribute today - nothing but multiple playings of Purple Rain, interspersed with sets of music videos of Prince songs...and also Fresh Prince songs because let's face it they're MTV and honestly wouldn't know any better.

I still long for the days when MTV - which stands for Music TeleVision - actually played music videos.
