California orders rolling blackouts for up to 250,000 homes and businesses as heat wave grips the state with temperatures hitting 112 degrees


Rolling blackouts could affect up to 250,000 homes and businesses in the state. Such a power cut has not been implemented since 2001, when there was a massive electric crisis. The San Joaquin Valley will see temperatures of 112 degrees and Los Angeles is expected to reach 96 degrees. While residents stay indoors because of the pandemic, Californians are using more AC in their homes. So fuck 'em - turn off the power. That'll teach 'em.

10-Cent Beer Night: The Dumbest, Most Dangerous 
Day In Baseball History

When the Cleveland Indians put on 10-Cent Beer Night in 1974, it turned out to be one of their most exciting baseball games of the season - for all the wrong reasons. The stagnating team wanted to boost attendance and put on a low-price event to fill seats. The promotion worked far too well.

On June 4, 1974, more than 25,000 fans descended on Cleveland Municipal Stadium to watch the Indians take on the Texas Rangers. The two clubs had a history of contentious meetings, and this turned out to be the contentious meeting to end them all. Fueled by alcohol, 10-Cent Beer Night devolved into a riot.


Plans for the promotion were flawed from the get-go. Unlimited booze, riled-up fans, and a hot summer night were a recipe for the perfect disaster. By the time 10-Cent Beer Night came to an end, the Indians had lost the game, the diamond was missing three bases, and onlookers were asking themselves what in the world just happened.

Using discounted beer to get spectators in seats wasn't a novel idea. The Cleveland Indians had used a Nickel Beer Night promotion in 1971 without incident. According to Bob DiBiasio, the Indians' senior vice president of public affairs at the time, "It went smoothly... they thought they'd do it again and raise it to a dime."

Just one week before the Indians staged 10-Cent Beer Night, the Texas Rangers had put on the same type of event. It seemed to be a good plan. 

Alcohol and an anything-goes atmosphere during the game led to some pretty incredible antics. Streakers descended onto the field, with at least one young man sliding into second base completely in the buff. During the second inning, a woman flashed the entire stadium from the on-deck circle before trying to kiss the umpire, Nestor Chylak.

From the bleachers, a father and son mooned in unison as several other unclothed fans ran around the field. According to Dan Coughlin, a sportswriter and injured participant, the game featured 19 streakers.

One potential factor was the heat on that summer night; another could have been the number of college students, recently let out on summer break, who were in attendance. Not all of the fans were pleased with the debauchery around them, with families fleeing the game in droves to try to escape the scene.


Concession Stands Got Overrun, So They Tried To Distribute Beers From Trucks, Which Also Got Overrun. During the early innings of the game, fans took part in raucous behavior, throwing items onto the field and setting off firecrackers. Announcers Joe Tait and Herb Score made a plea to fans to stop littering the field, an address that only prompted fans to throw more detritus onto the diamond. At one point, Rangers first baseman Mike Hargrove ducked just in time to avoid a jug of wine thrown at his head. 

The firecrackers proved to be just as problematic. A firecracker thrown into the Rangers' bullpen led to an evacuation of both bullpens by umpire Nestor Chylak. During the ninth inning, a fan jumped onto the field, ran toward Rangers slugger (and eventual 1974 American League MVP) Jeff Burroughs, and swiped his hat. When Burroughs tried to kick him, the outfielder lost his balance and fell. By some accounts, the fan took his glove and Burroughs chased him back to the stands. Either way, it was the breaking point for spectators and players alike.


People flowed down from the bleachers and took over the outfield. Rangers manager Billy Martin felt his player was in danger and, armed with a bat, charged onto the field with his team. He cried out, "Let's go get 'em, boys," and his fellow Rangers followed.

Rangers player Mike Hargrove later recalled, "The bat showed up later and it was broken."

Florida man made a luxury suite in an empty stadium his home for two weeks while helping himself to food, drinks and team merchandise.


Daniel Albert Neja, 39, was busted Sunday at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg - the 7,200-seat home of the Tampa Bay Rowdies professional soccer team — after workers found razors, used shaving cream containers and other personal items in a luxury suite. “A cleaning crew went into one of these suites that no one had gone into for some time due to COVID-19 and noticed there were blankets and shaving cream and a razor,” St. Petersburg police spokeswoman Yolanda Fernandez told the station. “Clearly someone had been living there.”

Neja also took team merchandise and food inside the stadium, which has been closed to fans although workers have been at the stadium daily. “He went into the merchandise store, he went into the food area,” she told the station. “So he was wearing the merchandise and just helping himself to food.”

Known to be brilliant in battle, he was also known to be compassionate with prisoners of war, and treated them with dignity and respect. That attitude made Hitler batshit crazy and he and Rommel constantly argued about this subject.

He had the full monte ANTIFA 'I'm a dooshbag' uniform.

A Queens man wanted for allegedly torching a cop car had spray-painted “TOO LATE!” on his wall to taunt the feds — but he didn’t flee fast enough and FBI agents nabbed him anyway. Sam Resto was busted at his work Thursday afternoon with a passport in his backpack, and admitted to FBI agents he had planned to flee, prosecutors said.

When agents entered his Elmhurst apartment that night, they were confronted with the scrawled taunt, alongside a drawing of a smiley face with a tongue sticking out. The provocation backfired. Prosecutors asked a Brooklyn federal court Friday to order Resto held without bail — and used his intention to flee and the wall taunt to back up their argument that he’s a flight risk.

The move is on to leave New York City. Who can blame them? No matter how nice it once was to live there, it's becoming a gigantic shithole. Again - like it was back in the 70's.


The exodus that began at the start of the coronavirus outbreak, with many New Yorkers departing to their beach and country homes, has continued unabated as more leave for good, according to city moving companies overwhelmed by the avalanche of would-be expats.

Do you have one of these? 

It's small enough so I leave ours right on the kitchen counter - I use it that often. I make sandwiches on it to take to work with me and there's usually a microwave in the houses where I'm working so I can heat 'em up when I'm ready. 

This thing makes an unbelievably outrageously good toasted sandwich.

This is Daisy - a true hero dog.




Jim Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center . He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy. After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened hallway.
Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with James’ boss, Who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112 on her first run of the building, she leads James, James’ boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building.

But she wasn’t through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James’ wishes she ran back in the building. On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears. Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. “She led us right to the people, before she got injured” the fireman explained.

Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win the Medal of Honor of New York City.
