    PORT RICHEY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local woman who took her daughter and nephew to play in the park one evening got more than she bargained for when a man approached them and claimed to be President Barack Obama. The man proceeded to call the female child a prostitute during the incident, according to WFTS-TV. The victim’s mother, 28-year-old Sharaya Smith, told the station that the attacker, Bienvenido Cintron, emerged from the bushes at Lake Lisa Park earlier this week and approached her and the two children. “He [said that he] was President Obama and he was here to...

    Jeremy Clarkson, the oft-offensive co-host of the long-running BBC car show "Top Gear," has frequently sacrificed his bod and critical sphincter control for the show's various challenges and stunts. Here we see Clarkson behind the wheel of the "smallest car in the world," a fully street-legal vehicle allegedly designed by Clarkson himself. Apart from looking hilarious, there are a variety of downsides to piloting the world's tiniest car, which Clarkson discovers in quick succession.

    Climate scientists, Drs. Mann, Jones and Hansen were nominated and approved for a Nobel Prize. The Drs. had written several manuscripts detailing climate change (aka global warming or new ice age depending on the time and rquirements). Wannabe self-proclaimed climate change expert Al Gore based his movie on the climate change trios manuscript. The Nobel prize science committee encountered several problems initially when trying to verify the data, models and results for the manuscripts. Their publisher, IPCC stated that they had no data, models or results for the committee to review even though it was commonly accepted that those items...

    RetiredTexasVet
    Steven Chu, the retiring Secretary of Energy, is blaming the power outage at the Superbowl on the Republicans. Steven Chu had arranged to have the Superbowl completely powered by solar panels as a final act of demonstrating the reliability and feasibility of solar power. To accomplish it, he had asked the Food Stamp President to request Congress to change the day/night ratio to 80% daylight versus 20% night to support the increased light requirements. The Republicans laughed off the request and the resultant unexpected darkness rendered the solar panels inoperable. The battery and generator backups proved to be up to...

    After Iran released news that it had successfully launched and recovered a monkey from space, some have begun to question whether the launch went as well as reported — and whether the monkey actually made it out. Earlier today, France24 andThe Independent both noticed that while the monkey seen in press shots had a prominent mole over one eye, there was no sign of it when the animal appeared later at a press conference. Iran also hasn't released shots of the craft itself after landing, a sharp contrast with the photos released from before the event. The above image from...

    New York Post ^ | 2/1/13 | Page Six New York Post
    To the shock of America, Katie Couric admitted she shared an intimate evening with Larry King. Yes, the bespectacled, suspender wearing, grandfatherly TV-news journalist who is 23 years Couric’s senior. On last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Couric recounted in striking detail about the Italian dinner date she went on with King 26 years ago in Washington, DC. After dinner, King drove them back to his apartment where he tried to put the moves on her. “So we sat there and what can I say, he lunged,” Couric said (to the delight/horror of everyone watching probably.)

After a dismal start to the season for the second straight year, Colorado's ski resorts are finally getting the snow they depend on. Colorado Ski Country USA reported total skier visits at its 21 member resorts dropped 11.5% during the first period of the ski season, which ranges from opening day through New Year's Eve. The marketing research firm IBISWorld reports that while the economic recovery is expected to bring more people to the nation's slopes, climate change is straining operations at many resorts.

But in her downtime, the cat owner uses kittens as her muse to recreate classic album covers, and the result is rather entertaining. She first came up with the idea for her website, The Kitten Covers, while she was at home sick in bed, looking at old, iconic album covers online with her cat. She noticed the graphic, exaggerated style of art in the album covers, and immediately had a vision of David Bowie...

That's exactly what a set of Orange County kids managed to do when they shut down what looks to be a six-lane interstate for the soul purpose of doing some donuts.

Harris pleaded not guilty to felony charges of domestic violence causing great bodily injury...

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – A rising chorus of congressional Republicans are calling on President Obama to acknowledge that the pop singer Beyoncé lip-synched during his inaugural festivities on Monday and resign from office, effective immediately. “By lip-synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”
