A five-year-old boy in Indiana who died of a rare form of brain cancer was given a superheroes sendoff with pallbearers dressed as his favourite comic book characters.
The little boy from Kentland died of an aggressive form of brain cancer on May 8, and his mom, Staci Denton, decided to give him a sendoff he would have appreciated.
Brayden’s uncle, Cory Denton, who was dressed as Thor, helped carry his nephew’s casket.
“It was hard, but I did it for him,” he told CBS affiliate WLFI-TV.
“The whole time I saw them carrying Brayden he was probably up there going, ‘This is so cool,’” Staci Denton told the New York Daily News.
“That was his world. That’s what he would have wanted.”
Now this REALLY sucks!

imagesM4GVV1Y7Some guy in Texas made hash brownies to sell to his friends, and because of the way he made them, (with some hash OIL thrown in to the mix as well) he now faces anywhere from five years to LIFE in prison!
If he had made the brownies with just weed and hash it would have been a misdemeanor, but the addition of the HASH OIL made that particular law include the weight of the ENTIRE batch of brownies instead of just the dope!
(See what ya get for being a nice guy!)

A Halifax woman took to the streets to announce that she thinks her husband cheated on her, posting warning posters across town on her husbands infidelity!
drunk5The woman, who was not identified, said she discovered a note from her husband that he was leaving her and their two children.
In response she printed out warning sheets, complete with her husband’s name, photo, birthday and phone number.
The poster also reads, “Local lying cheating scumbag. Married, father of 2. Ran out on family + left a note to inform them.”
The Perspective Research Department contacted the man, but he did not comment, other than to deny the angry wife’s claim that he was a “love rat.”

Folks I don’t like to complain, [sic] but why anyone would make this movie is beyond me!

“Corner Gas” ranks right up there with “The Beachcombers” as Canadian schlock, and is in no way indicative of the best we can do in this country!
A combination of tax credits, equity investments and direct grants from public agencies are supporting two-thirds of the $8.5 million production budget for Corner Gas – The Movie, according to information released by the government of Saskatchewan.
The province noted its expenditures — $1.5 million from Tourism Saskatchewan and another $500,000 from Creative Saskatchewan — in an Order-In-Council dated May 15.

sk-brentbutt-cp-3938227The document also lists several other sources of public funds, including agencies of the federal and Ontario governments. The largest contributor is Telefilm Canada, which is providing $2.5 million.
Pat Fiacco, the head of Tourism Saskatchewan (until he takes on a new role with the Hospitals of Regina Foundation at the beginning of June), said he believes spending money on the movie is a way to bring more visitors to Saskatchewan.
Just so you know kids, the best Canadian movie ever made was “Porky’s” ………………………………….. and this little gem from the National Film Board is the best “short” we ever did!

Once again, the world hit record heat levels. The average global temperature last month tied the hottest April on record four years ago.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Tuesday say last month’s average temperature was 58.1 degrees Fahrenheit (14.5 degrees Celsius). That was 1.39 degrees F (0.77 C) warmer than the average last century.
NOAA scientist Jessica Blunden said April’s heat was driven especially by Siberia and Eurasia.
She said the United States and Canada were the few exceptions. Canada was a bit cooler than normal, and the United States was a bit warmer than normal.
Tell the Republicans to put that in their pipe and smoke it!
There is a plant, called Welwitschia mirabilis (mirabilis being Latin for marvelous), found only one place on Earth.
You can get there, as artist/photographer Rachel Sussman did, by driving through the vast emptiness of the Namibian desert, the Namib Naukluft, in Africa.
Welwitschia, when you finally get to see one, sits apart. It’s very alone. All its relatives, its cousins, nieces, nephews have died away. It is the last remaining plant in its genus, the last in its family, the last in its order. “No other organism on earth can lay such a claim to being ‘one of its kind,’ ” writes biologist Richard Fortey. It comes from a community of plants that thrived more than 200 million years ago. All of them slowly vanished, except for Welwitschia. It has survived by doing very little, very, very slowly — sipping little wafts of dew in the early mornings, otherwise minding its own business, as the big, busy world goes by.
Here’s one. It looks like something that blew off the back of a truck, a tangled heap.

Looking the way it does (ugly), it’s not a coveted plant. Which is a good thing. “Though you might not guess it,” Rachel Sussman writes in her new book, “Welwitschia is a tree.” It has a trunk — a very short one — and it grows extremely slowly, with both leaves splaying or pushing out, “like dark green never-ending conveyor belts,” writes Fortey. “They often split into several lobes, so old plants look like a weird species of giant starfish stranded on the sands.”
This one, Sussman guesses, is around 2,000 years old.
Oh! Did I mention that Ray Bradbury’s Los Angeles hose if up for sale if ya happen to have one and a half million bucks sitting around!
AND FINALLY: US fast-food chain Chipotle has asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, after a group of gun rights advocates carried assault-style rifles into one in Texas.
Following the display, a gun control group launched an online petition to put pressure on the company. (Many US states allow people to carry guns in some fashion, but businesses may ban them.)
Chipotle said the guns caused “many of our customers anxiety and discomfort”.
Denver-based Chipotle, which serves Mexican-style food, joins coffee giant Starbucks in requesting customers not bring guns into their locations.
