Bloomington police, who said it was just a publicity stunt that Vorobyov hoped would persuade his estranged girlfriend to get back together
Vorobyov admitted throwing the money, which he had stamped with his YouTube address to direct people to it
He says he decided to throw out his “last $1,000 … to spread some holiday cheer … to make it snow money”
The chances of the three reasons all being one big happy accident are slim and none. So what’s the real reason? Who knows, but his act of charity ended in Vorobyov receiving a disorderly conduct ticket. I think the real question is just how much that’ll cost him.
A Saudi prince is suing Forbes magazine for under-reporting his wealth. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the grandson of the founder of Saudi Arabia and nephew of King Abdullah, claims that Forbes was about $9.6 billion short in its recent ranking of the richest people in the world. He believes that they curbed him to a mere $20 billion to intentionally rank him lower because he is from the Middle East, leaving him only in 26th place. (Third world problems, right?)
However, between this and his other lawsuit, that extra $9.6 billion may be already spent on legal fees.
What other lawsuit? He’s suing one of his ex-girlfriends for under-reporting his penis size by 9.6 inches.
CEO and former Google employee, Marissa Mayer, believes that buying the Internet-ancient free-to-use blog site is exactly what the Ask Jeeves-contemporary needs to branch into “revolutionary” social networking.
Yahoo previously bought Flickr for $35 million and GeoCities for $3.6 billion, making Mayer the CEO of either the Internet’s first online museum or elephant graveyard.
Goats. Bah. They eat everything, they’re annoying, they poop everywhere and some of them are fainting cowards. No one likes goats. That goes for both sides of this war.
Well, now we’re putting them to use. Take that, animals!
O’Hare airport, one of the worst airports This Guy has ever been to, is fighting the economic crunch by putting goats to the grass. (Warning: link has an ad with autoplay and sound — sorry.) They’ll be brought over on loan from a local restaurant to mow a large portion of the lawn the old fashioned way: with their mouths.
That’s called beating two bir-goats with one stone.
If you didn’t know, the pork industry isn’t doing so hot right now. Granted, it’s not in horrible shape, but even with the scares that plagued the beef/horse/guinea pig/unknown beef paste industry, it’s still not doing fantastically. And so, in order to raise pork sales, the National Pork Board and the Beef Checkoff Program did what any other multi-billion dollar industry does when faced with slumping sales.
It’s well known that the U.S. Postal Service, created with the stroke of a pen by President George Washington, is in some serious financial trouble. A couple weeks ago, it was announced that the mail will stop arriving on Saturday, to save money, and probably to say that the federal government now wants to honor the Jewish sabbath, not just the Christian one.
Artificially created shortages are just plain stupid. Remember when you tried to get a Wii for the first 10 months after they came out, but couldn’t? Ever tried to get a new iPhone or iPad a week after it comes out? It’s frustrating and only serves to deter a consumer.
Jorge Sanchez may have tried to create an artificial shortage of his own, just on a much smaller scale.
Mahanoy Area High School in eastern Pennsylvania has discovered what Joseph Gayetty knew all the way back in 1857: that there is very little difference between money and toilet paper.
After having to continually spend to replenish toilet paper — plus unclog the toilets — due to vandalism, Principal Thomas Smith is now controlling the substance. From now on, before you can make number two, you’ve got to sign out some squares from the school’s number one.
At least one parent, however, isn’t taking the Great Toilet Paper Requisition of 2013 sitting down: “Parent Karen Yedsena says some students are too embarrassed to go to the office to get toilet paper and are going home sick instead.” This is why the Guys firmly believe that Everyone Poops should be required freshman reading.
