OK folks, here’s our “Asshole of the Day,” and a tip for would-be home invaders!
You might want to consider attempting to break in via a window or a door … instead of, say, the chimney.
Authorities say that’s the route Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa decided to take early yesterday in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and things went very wrong, KTLA reports.
Deputies responded to a 5:45am call reporting that the woman, variously reported as 28 or 30, had been stuck in the chimney for two to three hours.
Neighbors called after hearing her screams, according to CBS LA.
Firefighters used jackhammers to partially dismantle the chimney, and lubricated the flue with dish soap before lifting Nunez-Figueroa out.
What was she doing in there in the first place?
Well, it’s not clear, but she’d gone on six dates with the homeowner—who wasn’t home at the time—after meeting him online, and he says he’d recently ended the relationship.
(Gee, I wonder why? -Ed.)

Citizen’s arrests date back to medieval times. They are arrests made by a person who is not acting as a sworn law-enforcement official. Generally, citizens are encouraged to be mindful of unlawfulness and to take action when they see it.
In an attempt to bring attention to the issue of unlawful traffic stops by police impersonators, Gavin Seim of Washington state flagged down a police officer.
The former Republican congressional candidate and self-proclaimed “liberty speaker” stopped a Washington state police officer last week because he was driving an unmarked vehicle.

Seim asked the officer if it was a registered unmarked vehicle for undercover work.
When the officer replied that it was a patrol car, Seim informed him of the law, saying, “You’re not allowed to have patrol cars that are unmarked, are you aware of that?”
In the state of Washington, police are allowed to drive unmarked vehicles for special undercover work but not for regular patrols. This is not a national law.
Seim then went through all the normal steps of a traffic stop: taking the officer’s name and asking to see his license. Then after a lengthy discussion about the law, Seim let him off with a warning. He urged the officer to speak with his bosses about their illegal patrol cars.
As odd as this may seem, Seim explains that he has a reason for this type of activism. He says that police using unmarked vehicles for regular patrols puts citizens in danger, because people can never be sure if they’re being pulled over by actual cops. On his blog he wrote, “If you think it’s not a serious issue, try asking those that have been raped or lost loves [sic] ones because of unmarked cars.”

In today’s feature article, if you think the weather’s acting strange, you’re correct. (AND THIS IS A WARNING TO ALL THOSE IDIOTIC CLIMATE DENIERS AT SUN NEWS, AND THE REPUBLICANS IN THE STATES!)
Extreme weather in the United States is trending upward according to a range of sources, from the 2014 U.S. National Climate Assessment to the American Meteorological Society.
Human-caused climate change has already been blamed for much of it — most recently in connection with the California drought — but along with extreme weather , the United States is also getting extreme contrasts.
What on Earth is going on when New York gets endless rain and San Francisco none, when one part of the country is freezing and another sees record heat?
Rising temperatures have something to do with it — and here’s how.
1. Rain patterns are changing
2. Rain is more intense.
3. Droughts are taking hold in some areas, while:
4. Floods are also taking hold in other regions.
Intense storms, severe regional drought and heat waves, and extreme flooding led to more than $9 billion in disaster costs, in the United States alone, in 2013. It’s uncertain what the total bill was if one factors-in ongoing agriculture, human health, and infrastructure losses from changing weather conditions.
Unless society curbs emissions of heat-trapping gases, scientists expect these trends to continue and worsen — and the contrast between wet and dry areas of the United States will likely become even sharper. Climate action needs to amp up if we are to finally set ourselves on a better path for the future.
