Quick Links: Cow Intestines, etc.
Truck Spills 40 Tons of Cow Intestines
The title is self-explanatory. Thanks to Big Gary for forwarding the story. He notes, "Nothing hoax-y about this; just more evidence that civilization is doomed."
Woman Fakes Heart Attack To Fight Off Intruder
The obvious problem with this tactic is that it relies upon the intruder being decent enough to help you out. What if you fake a heart attack, and the intruder just lets you flop around while he continues to rob your house?
Fake Blogging to Become a Crime in UK
Businesses that post fake glowing reviews of themselves online will potentially face criminal prosecution in the UK. The article notes: "Shortly before Christmas, the owner of the Drumnadrochit Hotel near Loch Ness admitted to posting a fake review of his own venue on the TripAdvisor site, calling it “outstanding” and “charming”. David Bremner said: “Maybe I shouldn’t have done it. But I don’t think it’s that big a deal.”" I've actually stayed at that hotel. It's a tourist trap -- dingy, overpriced rooms. Though there isn't that much to choose from around Loch Ness. (The Edinburgh gang might remember this hotel, because the bus to the Loch Ness Cruise left from the front of it.)
Anna Nicole Smith did not impregnate herself with her dead billionaire husband's frozen sperm
Claims to the contrary turn out to be a hoax. Though the idea sounded plausible.
Urination Rumors a Hoax
"The rumor that chefs at Texas Roadhouse urinated on an elderly woman's steak has been cleared up." Thank goodness for that. I'm so relieved.

I vaguely remember the hotel, but it's hard to recall it exactly - what with the buckets of rain obscuring my visionPosted by Nettie in Perth, Western Australia on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 03:26 AM

The only thing that submitting false reviews to a travel review site has in common with blogging is that they're both on the Web.Posted by rich in Ottawa, Canada on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 12:43 PM
re: urinating on a steak... watch "waiting" for similar themes within a movie.Posted by oppiejoe in Michigan - USA on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 01:08 PM
I believe it was George Orwell who wrote something like, "The more expensive the restaurant, the more likely it is someone has spat in your soup."Posted by Big Gary in Tool, Texas on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 01:31 PM
I have a couple of friends who are wait staff. NEVER get the wait staff angry at you. Urinating on a steak is small change compared to what they can, could, and according to my friends, have done to bad customers.Posted by Christopher Cole in Tucson, AZ on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 03:53 PM
Ha! Nice play on words. Urinate and relieved.Posted by dae dae in Charleston, SC on Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 10:03 PM
As to the fake heart attack. Even if they left you there and robed your house anyways, at least they aren't killing you. I bet robbers would rather have the victim die of a heart attack then kill him/her themselves.Posted by Razela in Chicago, IL on Tue Feb 13, 2007 at 01:23 AM
Where was he going with all those intestines?Posted by Maegan in Tampa, FL - USA on Tue Feb 13, 2007 at 08:55 AM

I dunno, but you've got to admit, the guy sure had guts.

Being from Texas, and loving Mexican food, I can tell you that cow intestines can be VERY tasty.Posted by Craig on Sat Feb 17, 2007 at 10:05 PM
I don't care whether she impregnated herself or not. As long as the info that she is dead is not a hoax I'm happy.Posted by Penguin on Thu Mar 01, 2007 at 08:03 AM
