    I just thought I would point out - as a matter of curiosity - that here we are, at the end of July, about to go into August, and the temperature at my house (in upstate New York) is at present 51° F. When I was growing up in this same neck of the woods, we would typically have a week or so of temperatures above 90° right about now, and a few times would go over 100°, at least for a day or two. Also interesting to note that - at this very moment - "AccuWeather" is saying that...

    The former Yankees manager spoke for 28 minutes Sunday in Cooperstown, making only a passing reference to Steinbrenner. Torre immediately regretted the omission, saying that he 'missed thanking the most obvious guy in the world.'Joe Torre certainly didnÂ’t look like a guy who had just fulfilled a lifelong dream and taken his place amongst baseballÂ’s all-time greats. Just moments after finishing his Hall of Fame speech Sunday, TorreÂ’s face was ashen. He was frowning. He was crestfallen that he had blown it by not talking more about what George Steinbrenner had done for him, what The Boss had meant to...

    Washington (AFP) - Giant anteaters in Brazil have killed two hunters in separate incidents, raising concerns about the animals' loss of habitat and the growing risk of dangerous encounters with people, researchers said. The long-nosed, hairy mammals are not typically aggressive toward people and are considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), largely due to deforestation and human settlements that encroach on their territory.

    The White House announced today it's new immigration program called "You Think You Had It Bad". Josh Earnest, the new White House paid liar, announced that the President was earnest and not joshing with the new program. Under the "You Think You Had It Bad" program, all new illegal immigrants (or new Democratic voters) will be shipped to Chicago for 10 days. Immigrants will be housed and processed in the Chicago Southside. Success of the program hinges upon the immigrants being exposed to at least two weekends in the city. It is felt that after two weekends in Chicago most...

However, before you purchase a kosher computer of your own, you should know that there are some important changes from the typical non-kosher computer you are used to, such as: 1) The ‘Start’ button has been replaced with a ‘Let’s go!

    BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. -- A southwest Florida waitress has dubbed the trio of naked hamburger thieves who broke into a southwest Florida eatery "dumb, dumber and dumbest." In fact, waitress Nancy Sansevieri is still laughing after police released surveillance video Wednesday showing the college-aged men — two naked and one clad in underwear — stealing 60 hamburgers from Doc's Beach House in Bonita Beach. Police say the men broke in early Sunday and left a trail of red peppers on the beach.

So the cadet said (paraphrasing) - Cadet - Mr. President, do you remember when you were doing a sound...

Nicholas Rogers, 34, was wanted on a felony menacing warrant. Police looked for him at his apartment in a complex in the 700 block of Chapman Drive. No one answered the apartment door, but police found an extension cord running from his residence to an outlet in the laundry room, an illegal utilities connection. Police disconnected the cord and hid in the laundry room to wait. After about half an hour, Rogers left...

    The internet is full of pets and also full of people doing showy-off yoga (Hilaria Balwin et al, we’re looking at you), and now the two have been hilariously brought together in video form. As anyone who owns a cat or dog will know, as soon as you try to do anything except lavish attention on them, they are overcome with jealousy and do all they can to sabotage it. And, while it’s deeply frustrating when your cat sits on your laptop’s keyboard, and just straight creepy when your dog insists on staring at you and your partner doing the...

    It was the best and the worst of life as a major league ball girl all wrapped up in one play. On one hand, the ball girl stationed along the right field line at Fenway Park on Friday night got to be part of the action, impressively fielding Kansas City Royals slugger Eric Hosmer's well hit grounder with millions of people watching. On the other hand, she somehow missed the fact that the ball crossed over first base in fair territory, meaning she had just interfered with a live play.

The racketeer was Joe Gagliano, the 55-year-old son of a reputed New Orleans mob underboss. The riddle was what he was doing in a van outfitted with what appeared to be gun ports, with a sniper rifle and silencer inside.Late one night a patrol deputy got a tip from a "credible and reliable source" that there was a van with stolen plates, driving on Metairie Road near the Orleans Parish line.

    The success of any great piece of art is determined by a few key factors. Does it accomplish what it sets out to achieve? Does it illuminate some essential aspect of the human condition? Does it change those who are exposed to it — rewire the circuitry, add new ideas that disturb the status quo? Does it build on the art of others, in the process crafting something profoundly new? Most important, does it advocate for the enduring relevance of tinfoil? Under these guidelines, Weird Al Yankovic's new "Mandatory Fun" is a stone cold masterpiece. Its goal remains the same...

    Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders. The numbers are stark: According to the FBI's 2012 Crime in the US data, nearly 70 percent of homicides for which the FBI received weapons data involved the use of...

    In a spoof of Shark Week, Comedy Central will deliver Shart Week. Yes, what a difference one letter can make.

The week concludes Aug. 9 with 11.5 hours of "poop-themed programming" from 12:30 p.m. to midnight, Comedy Central said. Viewers of "@midnight" can expect Shart Week-themed #HashtagWars segments.
