Default Trouble with a "Bucket List"

OCALA, Fla. (AP) Two longtime friends ended up in jail in central Florida thanks to a "bucket list" that included stealing from a store.

Police say 36-year-old Andrea Mobley and 38-year-old Jennifer Morrow face petty theft charges after stealing bathing suits and beef jerky during a trip to Wal-Mart on Wednesday.

A loss prevention officer told police Mobley was eating beef jerky in the store and Morrow concealed items inside her purse. They were detained after taking the items from the store without paying.

The Ocala Star-Banner (http://bit.ly/18BR9KR) reports the women told police they hadn't seen each other in years and stealing from a retail store was on the "bucket list."

Mobley told the newspaper they were just "two stupid women" doing something they'd never done before. She added she's ashamed.

Austrian drives flaming car to fire stationFrom Associated Press
May 30, 2013 9:05 AM EDT
VIENNA (AP) Some Austrian firefighters didn't have to leave their station to deal with a recent alarm. The blaze came to them instead.

Fireman Roland Brandl says that colleagues were doing chores at the station in the town of Pregarten Wednesday when a car sped in with flames shooting from beneath it.

One man grabbed an extinguisher and doused the fire. No one was hurt.

The blaze was apparently caused by a cleaning cloth which was left under the hood.

State broadcaster ORF says the unidentified driver drove about 1 kilometer (0.6 mile) to the station after a passer-by alerted him to the fire.

LOL thats awesome! The only thing that would have made the story better is if the guy stopped and asked someone directions to the nearest fire station.

Default One for a Prep Person!!

NEW YORK (AP) It's a fridge big enough for a family of four.

New York's Office of General Services has turned to eBay in an attempt to sell off a huge, steel morgue refrigerator now located at a Manhattan psychiatric hospital.

Bidding on Saturday afternoon was up to $475 for the four-drawer unit, but that price doesn't include delivery. Buyers have to be willing to remove the fridge themselves from the Manhattan Psychiatric Center.

Office of General Services spokeswoman Heather Groll tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/11htBpM ) that the ad is no hoax.

She says the agency does get unusual surplus items to sell from time to time, including barber chairs from prisons and police cars, but she doesn't recall a previous sale of a morgue cooler.

The auction runs through June 6.

It's medical grade, probably cleaner than anything you buy from Sears.
