Homeless Hotspots

Ad agency BBH wanted to help the homeless during Austin’s SXSW conference,
so they decided to turn 13 homeless men into walking Wi-Fi hotspots, providing
Internet connections for bandwidth-hungry conferencegoers.
The “Homeless Hotspots” sported shirts saying, “I’m _____, a 4G hotspot,”
with a code to text for access. All donations for the service — made via PayPal —
went to the men themselves.
The project immediately drew criticism from SXSW attendees, some of whom
called it “disturbing” and “offensive,” or thought it might be a hoax.
“The worry is that these people are suddenly just hardware,” said BBH’s Saneel Radia,
who came up with the campaign, “but frankly, I wouldn’t have done this if i didn’t
believe otherwise,” He added, “we’re very open to this criticism.”

Flight attendant's outburst delays flight

Back in August 2010, Jet Blue employee Steven Slater started ranting to the entire plane before releasing
the emergency door and exiting via one of those inflatable slide/life rafts.
By the time he got out of prison, he was famous. This will not happen to this flight attendant.


 N.J. city running out of toilet paper

TRENTON, N.J., March 13 (UPI) --
Officials in Trenton, N.J.,
say City Hall is almost out of toilet paper
and they need a new contract before they can replace the empty rolls.

Trenton City Council president Kathy McBride said Monday
the city is down to a half box of toilet paper
and one box of paper towel while the council is embroiled
in a disagreement with Mayor Tony Mack about a contract
that would keep city-run facilities supplied for a year,
The Times of Trenton reported Tuesday.

"I'm embarrassed," McBride said of the shortage.
"I'm a little disgusted, and I feel we're doing an injustice
to the residents of the city and the employees."

McBride and maintenance supervisor Paul Heater
said facilities including City Hall, senior centers,
the police department, the fire department,
the museum and water filtration plant
do not have enough supplies to last the rest of the week.
"It's something that should be taken care of right away," Heater said.
McBride called on her council colleagues to approve Mack's
proposed $42,000 contract to have paper products
supplied to the city for a year.

Drunk buggy driving? Amish nabbed after hitting cop car

Authorities in western New York say
they've charged four young Amish adults
with illegal possession of alcohol after
their buggy collided with a police car responding
to a report of a drinking party under way.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets
that the crash occurred around 7:15 p.m. Sunday
in the rural town of Sherman, near the Pennsylvania border
in New York's southwest corner.
Officials say deputies were responding to reports that people
were drinking in several Amish buggies on a country road.

As a patrol car arrived on the scene,
one of the Amish buggies changed lanes,
colliding with the police vehicle.
The buggy flipped onto its side, causing minor injuries
to one of the people on board.
Police say several other buggies fled the scene.

Buried UFO? Metallic Object Found In Hole By Franz Knoglinger In Austria                     An Austrian farmer looking for his lost cat stumbled upon a hole that he thinks might contain the greatest UFO find of all time.

Franz Knoglinger, 47, found the 25-foot-deep, perfectly round hole in northwestern Austrian field while searching for his misplaced kitty Sunday night. He pulled out every investigative trick in the book to learn what was at the bottom.

Throw a rock down the hole? Check.

"I was looking for our family cat Murlimann when I noticed the hole -- I didn't know how deep it was then so I dropped the stone down there, and heard a metallic clunk," he told the Austrian Times.

Big ol' magnet? Check.

"I managed to get a big magnet which I dangled down there and it clearly fastened onto something at the bottom –- so there is something large and metallic about down there," he said. "It also sounds as if there is a hollow space around about whatever the metal object is. It sounds as if there is a room underneath."

He even called a local plumber, who lowered a camera down the pit on a rope -- but the camera failed just as it reached the object. Knoglinger said that the interference may have been caused by "some sort of electrical field."

        Regardless, the speculations are already flying -- more than 500 people visited the site within the first day, the Salzburger Nachrichten reported (via Google Translate). Archaeologists told the paper that the hole could have been formed when wooden timber from an underground burial chamber rotted away.

But that doesn't explain the metallic object, which locals think could be a malfunctioned bomb from the war, the "Doorway to Hell" -- as one resident pointed out with a sandwich board -- or even a buried spacecraft, Knoglinger told the Austrian Times.

Geologists are expected to visit the site and perform tests before a possible excavation, the paper reported. Meanwhile, Knoglinger found his cat.
