Rich Sheikh Indulges in a $40K Oil Change

A Qatari resident spent the astonishing sum on having his Lamborghini flown into London's Heathrow Airport - and back out again - just for a service.
A rich sheikh had his Lamborghini flown thousands of miles from Qatar to Britain and back - just so he could have the car's oil changed.
The anonymous resident had the £190,000 car put on a scheduled Qatar Airways flight from the Gulf nation to London's Heathrow Airport and had it sent straight back after the routine check. The entire operation is thought to have set the sheikh back around £20,000.

What the hell was that cop thinking, he deliberately went out of his way to knock the bicyclist down! The cop should be fired!

You can see that the COPS were reacting to 'something' that happens off screen.
It would appear that the cyclist did something 'off-screen', and kept riding, but the Cops stopped him.

Police Finds Baby Seal In Car During Traffic Stop
Even in a small town like Coupeville, Washington routine traffic stops usually don't make the news. But you could hardly call what happened routine.
"One of my officers stopped a vehicle on the streets here in town for failing to stop at a stop sign," said Town Marshall David Penrod.
Penrod says when his deputy walked up to the car, something caught his eye. "He looked in the back seat and noticed what he thought was a stuffed animal began to move around," said Penrod.
Staring up at him from behind the glass was a harbor seal pup just a few days old, scared and dehydrated. The deputy's investigation of a rolling stop was now an investigation of something very serious. It's violation of federal law to capture a seal.

Man, 47, begs for arrest, gets wish
Peiter Vanvliet desperately wanted to be arrested. Problem was, the 47-year-old hadn't done anything wrong -- until he began harassing authorities and asking them to send him to jail.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Vanvliet, of 560 Joe King Road, repeatedly called 911 from a pay phone on Monday night to inform deputies there was a warrant for his arrest and that he would wait for them to come and arrest him.
Yet there was no warrant. Vanvliet wasn't wanted for any crime -- except that his repeated calls prompted deputies to charge him with misuse the 911 system. He was arrested.
A new toilet sign has been created at Thai school
The headteacher, Sitisak Sumontha, estimates that in any year between 10% and 20% of his boys consider themselves to be transgender - boys who would rather be girls.
"They used to be teased every time they used the boys' toilets," he said, "so they started using the girls' toilets instead. But that made the girls feel uncomfortable. It made these boys unhappy, and started to affect their work." So the school offered to build the transgender boys their own facility, and they welcomed it.
Thailand is well known for its tolerance of transgender men, and they are very visible in everyday life. Sex-change surgery has become a speciality of the Thai health industry, and it is relatively inexpensive; patients come here from all over the world for the operation.
