Even more disconcerting, telegraph systems worldwide went haywire. Spark discharges shocked telegraph operators and set the telegraph paper on fire. Even when telegraphers disconnected the batteries powering the lines, aurora-induced electric currents in the wires still allowed messages to be transmitted.

General Radio Discussion / WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET A TRAFFIC TICKET:
« on: September 03, 2010, 0446 UTC »
This advice was sent by a retired State Farm agent! This system has
been tried and it works in every state.

If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red light, or whatever
the case may be, you're going to get points on your license and a
surcharge on your auto insurance. This is a method to insure that you
DO NOT get the points.

When you get your fine, send in a check to pay for it. If the fine is
$79.00 make the check out for $82.00, some small amount over the fine.
The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference.
However, here is the trick: DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHECK! Throw it
away! THAT'S RIGHT. THROW IT AWAY...

Points are not assessed to your license until all Financial Transactions
are complete. If you do not cash the check, then the transactions are
NOT complete. The system has received its money and is satisfied and
will no longer bother you.

This information comes from an unmentionable computer company that sets up the standard databases used by every state.

BERLIN — A Polish man living in Germany went about his business for about five years without noticing he had been shot in the head because he was drunk when it happened.

Police in the western city of Bochum said on Tuesday doctors found a .22 caliber bullet in the back of his head after the 35-year-old went to have what he thought was a cyst removed.

Presented with the 5.6mm projectile, the man recalled he had received a blow to the head around midnight at a New Year's party "in 2004 or 2005", but had forgotten about it because he had been "very drunk," a police spokesman said.

"He told us he remembered having a sore head, but that he wasn't really one for going to the doctor," the spokesman said.

The wound later healed around the bullet and it was not until the man decided to have the lump examined due to recurring pains that the discovery was made.

Police said they were not treating the incident as suspicious as the bullet might have got lodged in the man's head when a reveler fired a gun in celebration.

"It may have been a shot fired up in the air which entered his head on the way down," the spokesman said.

The resident of Herne, who has lived in Germany for several years, was expected to be released from hospital later this week after the bullet was removed on Friday, police said.

General Radio Discussion / U.K. spy slain, stuffed in sports bag

Police discover body in apartment near HQ of Britain's MI6 spy agency
LONDON — Detectives have launched a murder probe after the body of a man reported to be an intelligence officer was discovered stuffed in a bag in a central London apartment.

London's Scotland Yard said Wednesday that officers found the man, believed to be in his 30s, at a home near the headquarters of Britain's MI6 spy agency.

According to media reports, the man worked for eavesdropping agency Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, and was on a assignment to MI6.

Britain's Telegraph newspaper reported that the victim had been stabbed, and his body stuffed in a large sports bag and left in the bathroom of the top-floor dwelling.

Police responded to an apartment in the affluent Pimlico area of London at about 4:40 p.m. (11:40 a.m. EDT) Monday following reports that its occupant had not been seen recently.

Investigators pronounced the victim dead at the scene, police said in a statement sent to msnbc.com. 

The victim's cell phone and SIM cards had been laid out in a ritualistic manner in another room in the apartment, according to The Telegraph.
Police said they have not made an arrest in the case.

Neighbor Rob Mills, a 35-year-old who lives two doors away from where the body was found, said people in the expensive London neighborhood of Pimlico knew little about the victim or his work.

"It's not like you'd tell your neighbors if you were a spy," he said.

Scotland Yard refused to say whether there were signs of a struggle or how the man may have been killed. An autopsy and formal identification was expected later Wednesday.

British media, citing neighbors, named the victim as Gareth Williams.

'Polite and mild-mannered'
Police and Britain's Foreign Office — the ministry that oversees MI6 — declined to confirm the victim's details, citing sensitivity over intelligence issues.

The police spokesman told msnbc.com that homicide detectives, as opposed to terrorism investigators, were handling the probe.

Sky News reported that police have ruled out terrorism and are proceeding under the premise that the death is somehow connected to the victim's personal life.

A landlady who rented the victim an apartment in Cheltenham, where the GCHQ's main office is located, told The Daily Mail that her tenant "was polite and mild-mannered and wouldn’t hurt a fly. He was forever off on bike rides but never really had friends around.

"Sometimes you could hear tapes whirring from his flat," she added.  "It must have been audio cassettes he used for work. He never told me what they were."

The victim is thought to have a doctorate in mathematics from Cambridge University, according to reports.

If investigators link the murder to the victim's reported line of work, it would be the highest-profile espionage-related murder since that of Alexander Litvinenko.

Litvinenko, a former KGB agent, died in November 2006 from the effects of radioactive polonium 210. Russian operatives are suspected in the death.

General Radio Discussion / TEST DRIVE
« on: August 14, 2010, 0150 UTC »
I stopped by the Toyota Dealership yesterday for a look at the new Tacoma . Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new "feel."

The salesman (wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options. The seats were of particular interest.

He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

Feeling like messing with his mind, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck. Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck. I explained that if it were a Democrat truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.

I had to walk back to the dealership... Damn guy had no sense of humor.

Oregon girl not bitter after lemonade flap
County feels the squeeze, allows 7-year-old to sell drinks again
PORTLAND, Ore. — After a county inspector squeezed out a kid's lemonade business, so many Oregonians puckered up in disgust that the county chairman had to pour on a little sugar.

The apology sweetened up some sour feelings and made 7-year-old Julie Murphy eligible to resume selling her Kool-Aid and water concoction for 50 cents a cup.

Last week at a local arts fair, Julie and her mother were surprised when a county inspector asked to see their restaurant license.

They didn't have one. The inspector told them they would face a fine of up to $500 if they didn't stop selling lemonade.

Other vendors urged Julie and her mother not to leave. A second inspector arrived and the two inspectors were surrounded by a crowd of vendors supporting Julie and her mother.

Ultimately, Julie and her mother packed up the stand, and as Julie left the fair she was crying.

But Julie has prevailed.
Jeff Cogen, chairman of Multnomah County, says the health inspectors were "just following the rule book" but they should have given the girl and her mom a break. On Thursday, he talked with Julie's mom to apologize.

"A lemonade stand is a classic, iconic American kid thing to do," Cogen told The Oregonian. "I don't want to be in the business of shutting that down."

And how does Julie feel about this?

Her mother, Maria Fife, said she and her daughter appreciates the apology.

But the sweet and sour tale of lemonade stands at the Portland art fair might not yet be over.

According to the Oregonian, one vendor at the local arts fair is planning a "lemonade revolt" the next time the fair is held — later this month.

Cogen says he doesn't know what he'll do if a bunch of fair vendors try selling lemonade without a license.

As it turns out, lemons may present county officials with something of a pickle.
