Another one, this time from down under. 

 

A pig gets drunk on 18 stolen beers from a camp site and picks a fight with a cow!

Its a bitch when your bacon gets in a fight with your steak :rotflmao:

A rampage by a feral pig that consumed 18 beers has prompted warnings for people at campsites to properly secure their food and alcohol.

The pig struck at the DeGrey River rest area, east of the remote Western Australian town of Port Hedland in the Pilbara, according to the ABC.

The animal was seen stealing three six-packs of beer from campers before ransacking rubbish bags for food.

One camper reported seeing the pig guzzling the beer before getting involved in an altercation with a cow.

"In the middle of the night these people camping opposite us heard a noise, so they got their torch out and shone it on the pig and there he was, scrunching away at their cans," said the visitor, who estimated that the pig had consumed 18 beers.

"Then he went and raided all the rubbish bags. There were some other people camped right on the river and they saw him being chased around their vehicle by a cow."

The pig was reportedly last seen resting under a tree, possibly nursing a hangover.

Boulder police: Husband of topless gardener assaulted RTD guard after wife was topless at bus station

By Mitchell Byars, Camera Staff Writer

 

[Terrible headline, but...]

 

(Mark Leffingwell/Daily Camera)
 

Robert Pierce, whose wife Catharine was involved in a topless gardening dispute in 2010, is set to stand trial on assault charges after police say he assaulted a Regional Transportation District security guard who told his wife she could not be topless at the Boulder Transit Center.

Pierce, 64, is facing charges of third-degree assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor; and third-degree trespassing, a Class 1 petty offense. He is scheduled for a jury trial Nov. 25.

According to a police report, on July 17, RTD security at the Boulder Transit Center -- 1400 Walnut St. -- reported Catharine Pierce was sitting topless on an RTD bench. An RTD security guard, Kevin Havens, and RTD security supervisor Carl Brown told police they were familiar with her because she had been told several times that she could not be topless on RTD property.

When Havens and Brown went to talk to Catharine Pierce, she had put her shirt back on but admitted she had been topless. Robert Pierce was with her and reportedly confronted Havens and began poking his chest, according to the report.

Havens told the couple to leave the property, but they refused to do so. When Robert Pierce continued to get "in his face," and poke him, Havens grabbed his arm to try to get him to sit down and the two began wrestling. Havens said Robert Pierce continued to hit and push him until he was able to get him handcuffed. Brown said Catherine Pierce also tried to grab Havens' arm but he pushed her back down onto the bench.

When police arrived on scene, Catherine Pierce told them that Havens punched her in the stomach, but then said she was poked in the stomach, according to the report. When an officer asked if she was poked or punched, she replied, "What's the difference?" She admitted she was asked two months ago to keep her shirt on while on RTD property.

Robert Pierce told police he was just trying to protect his wife and that he was "President Eishenhower's son and was going to run for sheriff for Boulder County." He refused to fill out a voluntary statement.

Pierce was booked into custody at the Boulder County Jail and is currently out on bond.

Both Robert and Catherine Pierce have been suspended from RTD property for one year.

Catharine Pierce is known in Boulder for gardening topless outside her home in the 800 block of Cherry Avenue. Boulder Housing Partners, which owns the home, threatened to evict the Pierces in 2010 but backed off after the Boulder City Council determined it would not make it a crime to be topless outdoors.

The couple also were detained in 2013 by police in Ohio. Robert Pierce had said he was going to "kill Obama and take him down," according to a police report. No charges were filed in that incident.

TRAVERSE CITY -- A 21-year-old Traverse City woman was arrested after driving her car onto the fairway in a sand bunker at a golf course.

According to the Traverse City Police, the incident happened Sunday around 6 a.m. at the Traverse City Golf and Country Club.

The woman left the scene and her car in the sand bunker . Police later found her at her house. When the police confronted her she was still drunk.

TV 9& 10 has another photo that show's just how far she had to drive to get into the sand trap.  How drunk do you have to be to do that!?

Perhaps it was a little difficult to see the cart path in the dark?

^^^^^ Reminds me of some ACTUAL WORK I did a few years ago.

 

I am a civil engineer. We were engaged by a golf resort to upgrade their water system and design new infrastructure for additional lodging facilities. In the process, we needed to visit the pump station for the system, which was located (of course) in the middle of the golf course. So, with the manager of the resort, the regional Public Health Engineer, an engineer from the provincial utility regulating department and various hangers-on, we set out for the pump station in a small convoy of three pick-up trucks, straight across a golf fairway. We did not drive on any greens, but we surprised several golfers.

 

Later that same day, we needed to review some proposed locations for new rental cabins. The trees in the areas where the cabins were to go had not been cut, and the paths were too narrow for the trucks.

 

The paths were big enough for golf carts. They were also rough and muddy. The manager chose the most beat-up golf carts he had, and our group formed an even longer convoy to go off-roading with the golf carts. For some of the mud holes, we were advised to go as fast as the carts were able. No one got stuck, but any actual golfer who treated those carts the way we did would have been asked to leave. Immediately.

 

It was one of my more entertaining days on the job.

I am imagining the dismay of the greenskeeper upon seeing the depth of the tire tracks on that fairway.

Let me tell you my golf story involving stupidity. I'm playing on a local public course after work one evening and it's been drizzling most of the day so it's pretty wet in the fairways. I hit a drive off to the right of a fairway that sloped down pretty hard and then flattened out near a pretty big stream. I'm getting ready to hit my 2nd shot when the guy behind me tees off and his ball rolls up into the same areas as mine. He really needed to wait for me to hit and move on before he hit, but that's another story. I hit my shot and get in my cart to move one.

Before I get too far he comes tearing down the hill in his cart full speed towards his ball, and the stream (I bet you can guess where this story is headed). He locks on the brakes of the cart as it proceeds to do about 2 or 3 spins and goes full speed over the edge and and lands upside down in the stream. I drive back down to see if he's okay thinking I'll find him climbing back out after his swim. The stream is about 2-3 feet deep and 6 feet wide and the cart is upside down in the middle and this guy is no where in sight.

I hopped in the water about the same time a course maintenance worker pulled up in a gator to see what was going on. This guy was pinned under his cart. We had a hell of a time getting the cart off of him because the stream was not wide enough to just roll it over sideways and pull him out. The running, muddy water didn't help. He ended up being okay but he did break an arm in the tumble. I'm guessing he's being more careful on wet fairways these days. lol

It's legal to be nude anywhere in the whole darn state of Vermont. Naked people are spotted walking the streets of Montpelier every couple of years, and every spring there is a naked bike ride in several cities in which groups of naked (or mostly naked) riders tour the city.

 

The only catch is it is illegal to get undressed in public, so if you feel the need, be sure to remove your cloths BEFORE going out.

Watched a skier having trouble on a fairly difficult section directly below a  chair . Lot of  negative comments came from chair in front of us directed at him. In the very short period of time it took  that chair to pass over him it had escalated into a challenge  to fight. We couldn't resist the opportunity to watch those two clowns try to get together so skied down to watch.  Ensuring battle was much as you would expect.  In  heavy powder on a steep slope  well beyond their ability they tried their best  to get  close enough to actually land a punch. Have often wondered what the odds of  those two  morons running  into each other in an area of over 8000 acres were.
