Ohio man trying to pay off lawnmower dies making explosive | WOWK 13 News

How was he trying to pay it off, you wonder?

According to the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived on the scene in Jefferson Saturday to find the detached garage burned to the ground and debris scattered in a neighbor’s yard.

A neighbor told deputies the man “was making the explosives in his garage to sell so he could pay off a lawnmower he recently purchased,” the sheriff’s office said.

His bagel didn’t have cream cheese, so he pulled gun on a police chief’s daughter, cops say




What choice did he have?

Police say Wright pulled out a black handgun, held it in the air and told her “I hate b------ like you and you don’t know who your f------ with, I’m from Carol City.”

"In that case, sir, you're free to go."
The guy gets a bagel at Starbucks, and thinks he is getting fucked with over the bagel not having cream cheese?! Whether from Carol City or not, Starbucks is a ripoff, whatever you get, regardless if you get it all or not!

Remember the old unenlightened days, when people had no weaponry to brandish when unsatisfied with their salt/fry ratio?
I thought an armed society was supposed to be a more polite society?
Didn't they keep promising this?

Well when expressing dissatisfaction with salt/fry ratio, pointing a pistol at someone (and not firing) could be argued to be more polite than sucker punching them.

Yakima man shoots fridge after soda can explodes


What choice did he have? He thought he was taking fire....

The man later told police in an interview that the people who live in the basement wanted to kill him and that they had shot at him, so he fired in self defense.

And the writer of the piece had some fun with it.

Police say the sound of the soda can popping is what the man thought was a gunshot.

Investigators also say there is no one that lives in the basement below the man, and that, in fact, there is no basement at all.

I used to stand Shore Patrol in the Club in Scotland. The men's room urinal was a big steel trough that automatically flushed itself every few minutes.
A drunk sailor staggered out one night, bloody knuckles, wet trousers. He had just stepped up to the urinal when, according to him, "It pissed on me, so i hit it." He beat the holy gummi bears out of that thing. and forgot what he was in there to accomplish.

He got a ride back tot he ship that evening... And an escort to the quarterdeck.

True story.

Yesterday backing out of the driveway, a couple was walking up the street two doors down from my house. A little girl in the house opened the door and their yappy little yorkie came running out towards them barking its head off. The woman screamed and ran into the street. The guy looked at her like she was nuts and I started LMAO. She saw me laughing at her and got PISSED! If she could shoot lighting bolts out of her eyes I'd be a smouldering heap of ash now. Which, of course, made me laugh all the more.

Still makes me grin thinking about it.

Reminds me of Jameela Jamil who claims on her Wikipedia page “She has said that at the age of 17 she was struck by a car while running from a bee, breaking several bones and damaging her spine.”

Oh, that could definitely have happened. We live on a somewhat busy street.

Yup, Florida again. Towing company was totally justified. I'll let my favorite Sheriff tell it.
