Serial Buttocks-Groper In Denver

From the Denver Post “Denver police looking for bald, heavy-set serial buttocks-groper

Police think the same man who fondled a woman’s backside at East Fifth Avenue and High Street on Aug. 21 grabbed another woman’s buttocks a few minutes later a block away on East Fourth Avenue.

Tuesday night, another woman was grabbed on the buttocks at an alley entrance between Newton and Osceola streets along West 37th Avenue.

The groper is described as Hispanic, in his late 20s to early 30s, about 6 feet tall. He also is described as bald and heavy-set.

UFO's Over Rio Rancho

According to New Mexico L.O.W.F.I (League Of Western Fortean Intermediatists), there was a sphere that morphed into triangle over Rio Rancho, NM. Sorry, no video.

Through the binoculars, I saw what appeared to be a large ā€œVā€ shape hanging in the air pulsing red-green-red-green. Rt 528 is about 15 miles from me as the crow flies and at first this thing appeared huge, but in the 15 minutes I watched it, it leveled out ā€“ still pulsing red-green until it drifted west to the point where I could no longer see it with the naked eye, but could still see it with the binoculars, and then in a few minutes it got so far away it was gone.

Someone decode the word Intermediatists.

Why I Hate People And Order Everything On The Internet

After writing my post on the “How To Eat Chicken Wings Video”, I got a craving for some chicken wings. I called-in an order at the nearest Wing Basket and drove down to Albuquerque to get them.

When I pulled up to the place I could see a car sitting in front with it’s lights on and people inside. It took me a few minutes to get parked and out of the car. As I got out, the passenger of the other car got out and hurried to the door. We both seemed to race to the door but I did stop to open the door for the other person. She ignored me as I opened the door, not even a thank you, probably because she was too busy talking on her cell phone.

She was now first in line and both the cashier and myself were getting annoyed as she kept asking the same questions since she didn’t pay attention to the answers the first time because she was too busy talking on her phone. Since I was the only other person in the place it because pretty clear their one call-in order was for me. They only had one cashier so they could only do one order at a time.

Eventually she made her order. It was the smallest least complicated thing on the menu and it only took her 10 minutes. I’m not sure if she was consulting with the person on her cell phone or made this choice all on her own. Once she got out of line, she seemed oblivious that there was someone waiting in line behind her.

My Wings were delicious once I got home to eat them. The point of this story is to explain why I hate people and try to order everything on the internet.

Thanks CableOne For Fixing My Intertubes

The company I hate the most is the phone company. The second company I hate the most is the cable company. At least it used to be. When I lived in Albuquerque, I had Comcast cable internet because they were the monopoly there. Now that I’m in Rio Rancho I have Cableone. The first thing I liked about CableOne is they didn’t charge me a surcharge for just having Cable internet without TV. (In fact I did have their TV service for a short while, but their HD selection was poor and the Motorolla DVR was extremely poor).

In the 3 years I’ve had their service there’s been a few downtimes not related to them, but most of my issues have been at my house. For the last few months I’ve had to reset the cable modem a many times and last week no amount of reseting it was bring back my fix. I went down to my least favorite of stores and bought a new one. No luck, it worked just as good as the other one.

I broke down and called CableOne tech support. It involved me entering my account number into the automated system then being directed to a person within a few minutes. The guy on the phone tried to remotely access my modem and was unable to, so he proceeded to set up appointment for a technician to come out.

He asked when if I could be available the next day and I said I can and the sooner the better. So he tells me to hold on then comes back to the phone and asks if I am can have them come out right now. This is at about 4pm .

Uh… heck yeah.

There were two cable one vans at my house within a hour. They came in and checked a few things. Then went outside to the side of the house. About a half hour later my internet was working.

There was some sort of connector that they had to dig up and replace. Apparently the previous owners dog had chewed it up and it took this long to fail.

Cable one doesn’t isn’t as cheap as Quest but I’m not complaining.

Bizarre TSA Freeze Command

Boing Boing had this today

I walked from the arrival gate towards baggage claim, and when I was about halfway there, all of a sudden about a dozen or more TSA personnel and private security staff appeared, shouting STOP WHERE YOU ARE. FREEZE. DO NOT MOVE. Not just at me, but all of the travelers who happened to be wandering through the hallway at that moment.

I made a comment on that post that the exact same thing happened to me.

This happened to me when i was in PDX a few weeks ago. I was leaving the secured area after getting off a plane, i was near the screeners but not yet through. The TSA people started yelling and did the same thing you described and had everyone freeze.

It only lasted a few minutes for me.

My tax dollars at work. Whatever.
