Are you ready for some BISON football?... Watch this!... GO BISON!

A disgruntled ex-reporter killed two of his former co-workers at a Roanoke, Virginia, TV station by gunning them down on live TV yesterday morning (August 26th) while one of them, 24-year-old WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, was interviewing a local official at an outdoor shopping mall for a tourism segment, and the other, 27-year-old Adam Ward, was filming it as the cameraman. As the segment was airing at around 6:45 a.m., viewers suddenly heard gunshots, saw Parker scream and start to run, and heard her crying, "Oh my God!" as she fell. Ward also fell, and after he did, his camera caught a quick image of 41-year-old suspect Vester Lee Flanagan holding a gun. The station quickly switched back to a shocked-looking anchor in the studio, who said, "OK, not sure what happened there." Both Parker and Ward died at the scene, while the woman being interviewed, Vicki Gardner, underwent surgery and is expected to survive.
Flanagan, who'd used the name Bryce Williams as a reporter, fled the scene, and then started posting on social media. He charged in tweets that Parker had made racist comments and that Ward had gone to human resources at the station after they'd worked together one time. He then tweeted, "I filmed the shooting see Facebook." On that site, Flanagan posted a chilling video of the shooting from his vantage point, which he filmed as he carried out the attack. In it, he's seen closely approaching Parker, Ward and Gardner, who aren't aware he's there, and then his arm is seen pointing the gun at Parker, but he waits to open fire until Ward swings the camera around again to focus on the interview, making sure the shooting is captured and broadcast live on camera.
Police determined that Flanagan was the suspect, and were able to locate him by his license plates as he tried to flee. With police chasing after him on a highway around 11:30 a.m, he ran off the road and crashed his car, and was found in the vehicle by state troopers with a self-inflicted gunshot wound that killed him

Flanagan's Motives
About two hours after the shooting, Flanagan sent a 23-page fax to ABC News, in which he said he'd been repeatedly mistreated both for being black and gay. He stated that he was motivated in part by the race-driven shooting at an historic black church in Charleston in June, writing, "Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15. . . . The church shooting was the tipping point . . . but my anger has been building steadily. I've been a human powder keg for a while . . . just waiting to go BOOM!!!!" But he also expressed admiration for the Columbine High School killers, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, and Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people in 2007. Flanagan wrote of Cho, "That's my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got . . . just sayin'."
Flanagan's History
Later yesterday, WDBJ president and general manager Jeffrey Marks described Flanagan on-air as an "unhappy man" who was difficult to work with:"He was sort of looking out for people to say things that he could take offense to. He -- and eventually, after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him."Marks said that Flanagan claimed that other employees made racial comments to him, but they couldn't corroborate any of his allegations, stating, "We think they were fabricated." His claim to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was also dismissed. Marks further recalled that when the station fired Flanagan in 2013, police had to escort him out because he refused to leave. Flanagan had a similarly troubled history at other stations where he worked, and his was fired at least twice after managers said he was causing problems with other employees.

Both Parker and Ward were romantically involved with co-workers at their station. Ward was engaged to a producer, Melissa Ott, who was in the control room watching during yesterday's attack. Parker was dating an anchor at the station, Chris Hurst, and they'd just moved in together. He paid tribute to her on social media, saying, "We were together almost nine months. It was the best nine months of our lives. We wanted to get married. . . . She was the most radiant woman I ever met." Parker's father, Andy Parker, told the Washington Post, "My grief is unbearable. Is this real? Am I going to wake up? I am crying my eyes out."
Flanagan's family emailed a condolence note to WBDJ, saying, "It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we express our deepest condolences to the families of Alison Parker and Adam Ward. We are also praying for the recovery of Vicki Gardner. Our thoughts and prayers at the time are with the victims' families and the WDBJ7 NEWS family. Words cannot express the hurt that we feel for the victims. Our family is asking that the media respect our privacy. Sincerely, The Family of Vester Flanagan."

Maybe the craft beer revolution is getting out of hand. San Francisco brewer 21st Amendment has announced that it's making a new Pop-Tart beer. The India Red Ale, called Toaster Pastry, will make its debut this coming weekend at the opening party for the brewery's new facility in San Leandro. It's been created as a tribute to when that facility was a Kellogg Co. factory that used to make Pop-Tarts and Frosted Flakes. Not yet known what kind of Pop-Tart flavor or sweetness the beer will have.

A woman who asked for home-delivered flowers received a twist on the traditional romantic gesture when her boyfriend gave her bags of flour instead.
After Paige-Ellen Williams hinted to her boyfriend, Richard Selway, that she would love to have some flowers delivered to her house, Mr Selway decided to do as she'd asked - by having 12 bags of flour sent to her address.
Miss Williams shared a picture of the delivery on Tesco's Facebook page, which has now been shared almost 9,000 times.
She said: "A Tesco delivery man knocked my door yesterday morning and I sent him away telling him he had the wrong address!
"We've never ordered online from Tesco and why on earth did I need 12 bags of flour? He came back insisting the delivery was for me as he'd spoke to my boyfriend!
"Definitely the last time I'll ever mention that I'd love to have flowers delivered to the house!"
When confronted by a confused Miss Williams, Mr Selway said: "Who said romance was dead?"
Tesco's response to the post has received over 13,000 likes.
Mike from their Customer Care department said: "I'm so sorry that we didn't get back to you sooner! We've been busy arranging other romantic gestures up and down the country.
"I've seen more mixed tapes than you'd like to imagine! In all honesty though, I think this act of romance is fantastic! Your boyfriend has really proven how much he's listening to you and your desire to have flours delivered.
"I hope you enjoy your weekend and I can't wait to see how you have the flours arranged in the middle of your dining table."

This is the easiest $25 you'll ever make.


There was a class-action lawsuit filed against Starkist Tuna about two-and-a-half years ago, claiming they were intentionally under-filling their cans by a few tenths of an ounce.


And they just settled the lawsuit. Even though they didn't officially admit to anything, they're PAYING UP.


If you bought at least one five-ounce can of Starkist tuna between February 19th, 2009 and October 31st of last year, you're eligible for $25 . . . or $50 in tuna.


Now, odds are you don't have any grocery store receipts to prove you bought the tuna. But that's fine. You just have to SAY you did. Although if you lie, you could be facing perjury charges . . . but we have no idea how they'll prove it.


To claim your free money, go to TunaLawsuit.com and fill out a claim form before November 20th.

One of the reasons why the Ashley Madison hack has swept through the US' imagination to such a profound degree is how all-encompassing it seemed. The hack clawed its way into communities all across the country — well, not quite every community.
Gawker's Gabrielle Bluestone has uncovered that there are precisely three ZIP codes across the country that have no record of Ashley Madison users. That's ZIP codes, not area codes. And what do they have in common? They're partially lacking two things: the internet and a large number of people.
Gawker's discovery highlights a pretty dark truth. These three ZIP codes are probably the only ones in the US that don't house spouses looking to cheat — at least not by using Ashley Madison.
Here they are:

Nikolai, Alaska (99691) — Population: 94 (2010 Census)

Most of the residents of Nikolai are indigenous Alaskans, according to Gawker, and the town can dip to 60 below zero in the winter.

Perryville, Alaska (99648) — Population: 113 (2010 Census)

When Gawker asked a local why no one in her town was on Ashley Madison, she replied that there was maybe only 10 households in the entire town that had internet. This town is also predominantly indigenous Alaskan.

Polvadera, New Mexico (87828) — Population: 269 (2010 Census)

An employee at the county clerk's office told Gawker that there probably was no one on Ashley Madison because you can't get reception in that area, which is about 4 square miles of rural peace.

And there you have it. Those are the last vestiges of the US left untouched by Ashley Madison — though of course there is the possibility that there are other bastions of innocence that have fake accounts registered to them.
Even so, the ubiquity of Ashley Madison is striking.

Soon after the Old Farmer's Almanac earlier this month predicted another cold winter coming up, The Farmer's Almanac is forecasting the same thing, saying it's going to be a, quote, "winter deja vu" of last year. The 199-year-old, Maine-based publication uses a formula based on sunspots, moon phases and tidal action to make its predictions, which this winter call for cold and snowy weather from Maine to Montana, with unseasonably cold temperatures dipping down as far as Kentucky. As for the rest of the country, the Almanac says there'll be milder weather out West, and chilly and wet weather for the South.

BELMAR, N.J. — A 20-year-old Rutgers University student who is waiting tables at D'Jais Bar & Grill this summer to help put herself through school, got an unwelcome lesson in the humanities this last week.
On Aug. 17, Jess Jones of Belmar, N.J., was waiting on a party of eight at the restaurant and night club here. After the $112.03 bill was paid for by credit card, Jones discovered that her customers had left her no tip. Instead, the texting acronym "LOL" — for laughing out loud — was written on the tip line of the receipt next to the words, "1 hour for food."
The following day, Jones took to her Facebook page to lament about the indignity, where she also posted a photo of the receipt (blurring out any personal information belonging to the offending patrons).
Jones agreed to permit the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press to share her story and publish the photo of the receipt.
"Last night, I was stunned by this receipt that was left for me by a party of eight people," Jones wrote. "I would have preferred a '$0' tip than a 'LOL' tip, but as a waitress, bad tips and harsh notes are all part of the job. Even though they did wait an hour to eat, they remained satisfied with filled drinks and proper notice that the kitchen was a bit busier than normal. I've worked in the service industry for five years and I take pride in providing great service to my customers."
Jones wrote that servers in New Jersey earn $2.50 an hour. For non-tipped workers in the Garden State, the minimum wage is $8.38.
"Most of my paychecks are less than pocket change because I have to pay taxes on the tips I make," she wrote. "I need tips to pay my bills. All waiters do. We spend an hour or more of our time befriending you, making you laugh, getting to know you, and making your dining experience the best it can be. We work hard, and we really do care."
By Friday, the Facebook post had gone viral and was brought to the attention of Mayor Matt Doherty, who weighed in on the matter in his own public Facebook post.
"If you visit Belmar please treat the hardworking men and women in our service industry with the same respect you would expect at your job. This is ridiculous," Doherty wrote.
"My experience with this table was cruel and unnecessary but sadly it's not uncommon," Jones wrote. "With that said: Please be good to your waiters. I know it's annoying when things aren't right. I know how aggravating it is to receive a hefty bill when all night you've been wondering why the table that came in after you was served before you. But waiters are mere messengers most of the time, and it's wrong to shoot them, however bad the news."

MINNEAPOLIS - At the NFL's 2014 NFC Rookie Symposium, featured speaker Cris Carter told the league's incoming rookies a bit of advice now setting off controversy.
"If y'all have got a crew, you have to have a fall-guy in the crew," Carter said.
Wearing his Hall of Fame gold jacket, the former Vikings great followed fellow Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp's advice about staying out of trouble.
Sapp laughed out loud as Carter began telling the rookies to establish a friend willing to take the heat on behalf of the professional football players, should they find themselves in trouble.
But Carter continued, pulling then-rookie Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on the stage.
"This right here is Teddy Bridgewater, Inc.," Carter said. "Now, I let my home boys know. Y'all want to keep rolling like this, then I need to know who's going to be the fall-guy. Who's going to be driving. Because you are all not going to be doing the right stuff, so I need to teach you how to get around this stuff too."
Sunday evening Carter responded to outrage over his comments with an apology on Twitter.
"Seeing that video has made me realize how wrong I was. I was brought there to educate young people and instead I gave them very bad advice. Every person should take responsibility for his own actions. I'm sorry and I truly regret what I said that day," Carter wrote.
The comments came to light in an ESPN the Magazine interview featuring Chris Borland, who retired from the San Francisco 49ers after one season because of concussion concerns.
The article says Borland was appalled at the advice, and quotes him as saying, "I was just sitting there thinking, 'Should I walk out? What am I supposed to do?'"
The ESPN article does not name Carter, an ESPN employee, as the former player who gave the advice. But various reports pointed to a 22-minute video posted on NFL.com of Carter and Sapp's presentation. The "fall-guy" portion lasts about two minutes. The video has since been taken down.
NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy emailed KARE 11 News this response:
"This was an unfortunate and inappropriate comment made by Cris Carter during the 2014 NFC rookie symposium. The comment was not representative of the message of the symposium or any other league program. The league's player engagement staff immediately expressed concern about the comment to Cris. The comment was not repeated in the 2014 AFC session or this year's symposium."
Carter was however invited back to speak at the 2015 symposium.
Hall of Fame Vikings player Carl Eller said he was appalled at Carter's comments.
"Really, we want to develop leaders. Not people who are, you know, schemers and trying to get away with stuff. That's just the wrong characteristic totally," Eller said.
Eller, who has spoken at the rookie symposium on the importance of character and developing off-the-field life skills, said he thinks Carter's comments were uncharacteristic.

Three American friends who are being hailed as heroes for taking down a heavily-armed man on a train traveling through Belgium on Friday (August 21st) said Sunday that they relied on gut instinct and their close bond after many years of friendship. Two of the three are in the military, and one of them, U.S. Airman Spencer Stone, said that the gunman, identified as 26-year-old Moroccan Ayoub El-Khazzani, seemed like he was, quote, "ready to fight to the end," adding, "So were we." The 23-year-old Stone was injured during the takedown and had his arm in a sling during the press conference. Stone said he was just waking up out of a deep sleep on the Amsterdam-to-Paris high-speed train when the gunman appeared, and one of his friends, 22-year-old National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, who was recently back from Afghanistan, told him, "Let's go." As Stone and Skarlatos went to tackle El-Khazzani and take his gun, their other friend, 23-year-old Anthony Sadler, also moved in to help subdue him. France and Spain say El-Khazzani is an Islamic extremist who may have spent time in Syria, and he was on the radar of authorities in those countries and in Belgium, but his lawyer claims he was homeless and trying to rob passengers to feed himself.
Stone is also credited with saving the life of a man who was shot in the neck by pushing down through the wound on the artery to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived. Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler were presented with the prestigious Legion of Honor today, as was a French citizen who first came across the gunman near a train bathroom and a British man who joined to help tie him up.

KISS rocker Gene Simmons home may have been used to commit a crime, but neither he nor his family members are suspects. And police have asked Simmons not to say a word about it.
Detectives with the LAPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant Thursday at the home of musician and reality star Gene Simmons, police said.
The warrant was served at the KISS front man's home located in the 2600 block of Benedict Canyon Drive in Beverly Crest, said Mike Lopez with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Simmons and his family were cooperative and were not considered suspects in the investigation, Lopez said.
A representative for Simmons confirmed to KTLA in a statement that police came to the family's home Thursday "to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Simmons was away on tour with KISS."
"Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation," the statement read in part.
The representative added that police had asked the family not to discuss the matter publicly so as not to compromise the investigation.
On her Facebook page, Simmons' wife Shannon posted, "OMG this is one crazy day update: all of our iPhones iPads and computers are cleared. Now the real investigation can start !"
Simmons was best known as a front man and co-founder of the rock band KISS, but he wears many hats, including record producer and songwriter.
He also starred in a reality television show on A&E, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," which documented life with his wife and children.

The Duggar family molestation scandal may have happened years ago but Josh Duggar was apparently on the prowl as recently as May. Gawker is reporting that Josh was one of the names of Ashley Madison users leaked during the recent hack.
A credit card belonging to Joshua J. Duggar was apparently used to pay a total of $986.76 for two different accounts from February 2013 to May 2015. The billing address on the account also matches the address of the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas that was often featured on the TLC reality show.
The user was looking for an extramarital partner for "Conventional Sex," "Experimenting with Sex Toys," "One-Night Stands," "Open to Experimentation," "Gentleness," "Good With Your Hands," "Sensual Massage," "Extended Foreplay/Teasing," "Bubble Bath for 2," "Likes to Give Oral Sex," "Likes to Receive Oral Sex," "Someone I Can Teach," "Someone Who Can Teach Me," "Kissing," "Cuddling & Hugging," "Sharing Fantasies," "Sex Talk."
His turn-ons included: "A Professional/Well Groomed," "Stylish/Classy," "Casual Jeans/T-shirt Type," "Muscular/Fit Body," "Petite Figure," "Tall Height," "Short Height," "Long Hair," "Short Hair," "Girl Next Door," "Naughty Girl," "Sense of Humor," "Imagination," "Creative and Adventurous," "Relaxed and Easy Going," "Aggressive/Take Charge Nature," "Confidence," "Discretion/Secrecy," "A Good Listener," "Good Personal Hygiene," "Average Sex Drive," "High Sex Drive," "Dislikes Routine," "Has a Secret Love Nest," "Disease Free," "Drug Free," and "Natural Breasts."

The second account was registered in July of 2014 and linked to Josh's home in Oxon Hill, Maryland where he was living while working for the Family Research Council.
The account was also part of a group of users who paid extra for an "affair guarantee" which promised satisfaction within three months of signing up.
The Duggars have not addressed this latest scandal.

As he left, Trump said, "The people in the court system are really professional. It was an honor to see how it worked." Trump had been summoned for jury duty five times before but didn't appear.

If you've always believed BEER is the real breakfast of champions, but other people disagree and say you've got a "problem" . . . who's laughing now?

WHEATIES is teaming up with Fulton craft brewery in Minneapolis to create a brand new beer called HefeWheaties.

There are a few catches though. One, they aren't going to use actual Wheaties to brew the beer, but it's a wheat beer . . . just like Wheaties is a wheat cereal.

And two, unfortunately, HefeWheaties is only going to be available in the Minneapolis area. It goes on sale on the 26th and they won't ship it anywhere outside of Minnesota.

But if it's a big hit, Fulton says they'll consider doing another, bigger rollout in the future.

This was discovered by UFOovni2012 of Youtube and I have to admit, it looks like a woman partly cloaked. The woman seems to have breasts...indicated by the shadow on its chest. We also see two arms that are lighter in color and what looks like a head with long hair. Its hard to tell if this is a living being, or a statue of a being from long ago. However, a statue that small would be eroded and destroyed easily, so it has a higher chance of being a living being. Also it is facing the Mars rover...watching it from a distance. This being is about 8-10 cm tall. Yes, one such species is known to exist that small. Remember the Apollo 20 mission, not the fake TV show, but the real mission? Well William Rutledge (astronaut) said inside the cigar ship in Deporte Crater (moon) he saw glass tubes on the walls with tiny human-like skeletons in them about 4-6 cm long. This looks real. And it should concern every country in the world. There is life out there. Check out more photos at his UFO site

It didn't…instead it turned out to be a serious eye emergency and required immediate surgery to repair it. The prognosis is good and I look forward to seeing y'all soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding. You're the best!" -Spyder

You may not have known this, but CHRIS FARLEY was originally hired to provide the voice of "Shrek". And he actually recorded a lot of his dialog before he died in 1997. But it wasn't enough.


MIKE MYERS was brought in to replace him, the script was re-worked, and the rest is history.


Well, a clip of Farley's dialog has hit the web. It's a conversation between Shrek and Donkey, played by EDDIE MURPHY. And the video includes early sketches of the characters. You won't recognize the dialog, since the script was changed when Myers came on board.

JEB BUSH has set up an online campaign store to raise funds . . . and one of the things he's hawking is a $75 GUACAMOLE BOWL.


What does it look like? Well, it LOOKS like a bowl you can buy on Amazon for MUCH cheaper. The price there is $7.89. For TWO.


Jeb's doesn't even have his name or logo on it. It appears to be just a straight-up guacamole bowl with a jacked-up price. The online description says, quote, "Jeb and [his wife] Columba (Columbos' sister I think) love whipping up guacamole on Sunday Funday.

Neat.


"Now, YOU can get in on the act with this 'Guaca Bowle.' Jeb's secret guacamole recipe not included . . . yet." Perhaps one day that recipe will be sold separately . . . and I can only imagine how much he'll want for that.


Not having "Jeb! 2016" on it can actually be a plus, though. If you're shelling out $75 for a guacamole bowl, the least he can do is make sure it isn't obsolete in a year.


The rest of the stuff is pretty standard . . . Jeb mugs, barbeque aprons, water bottles, and gear.

In case you thought Philadelphia was softening up . . . nope.


Two weeks ago, researchers from Ryerson University in Toronto started an experiment to see if a ROBOT could hitchhike across America. They called it 'hitchBOT,' and put it by the side of the road in Boston with a sign saying "San Francisco or Bust!"


Obviously they hoped different people would take interest, and gradually drive it all the way to California. It came with a bucket list of places to visit . . . like Mount Rushmore and the Grand Canyon . . . and could answer simple questions.


And they had good reason to be optimistic . . . it's already made trips across Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands.


Things started out pretty well too. The robot made it to Fenway, visited three cities in Massachusetts, hung out on a fishing boat, and got all the way to Times Square.


Unfortunately it wound up in Philadelphia this weekend, where people DESTROYED it . . . stole the electronics inside . . . and took its HEAD. The researchers said they're regrouping and that, quote, "bad things happen to good robots."

The wrestling world has barely gotten over the death of DUSTY RHODES in June, but now there's another, even greater, loss to contend with.


"ROWDY" RODDY PIPER died in his sleep Thursday night after suffering a heart attack. He was 61 years old. Piper had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006, but was reportedly cancer-free at the time of his death.


Roddy was from Canada, but he played up his Scottish heritage, wearing a kilt to the ring and coming out to bagpipe music. He was born Roderick Toombs, and he wrestled his first match when he was 15.


Piper's influence on the wrestling business . . . especially when it comes to BAD GUYS . . . can't be overstated. He was fearless, unpredictable, and one of the best talkers in the history of the business.


His feud with HULK HOGAN and MR. T back in the '80s, which also involved CYNDI LAUPER, put pro wrestling on the map, and was the main attraction of the first Wrestlemania back in 1985.


But it's possible that he'll be best remembered for his TV interview segment, "Piper's Pit" . . . especially the episode where he smashed a coconut over the head of JIMMY "SUPERFLY" SNUKA.


(WARNING!!! This feels a little racist by today's standards, but remember . . . Piper was playing the villain.)


Piper also did some acting. His most famous film was JOHN CARPENTER's sci-fi classic "They Live" from 1988. The movie included the classic line, "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass . . . and I'm all outta bubblegum."
