9. God knew that Adam would one day need someone to hand him the TV remote.

Kellett wanted to help, but was not interested in any resistance — spray or otherwise during the Thursday encounter. So he grabbed a pellet gun used in hunters' safety courses and shot at the jar from a safe distance. The shots cracked and shattered the jar, leaving a glass collar around the skunk's neck. With its head free, the skunk ran off."I didn't want to use deadly force, and it is a residential area," said Kellett. "The way he was when he took off, he was able to eat, breathe and spray — and do anything else skunks like to do."

SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. -- A Kentucky jury has awarded $6.1 million to a former McDonald’s employee who sued the company after being strip-searched, humiliated and sodomized in the back office of its Mt. Washington, Ky., store.
Louise Ogborn had sued for $200 million.
The jury also awarded $1.1 million to a former assistant manager who strip-searched Ogborn.
A man impersonating a police officer called the restaurant in April 2004 and persuaded assistant manager Donna Summers that Ogborn, then 18, had stolen money from a customer.
The caller asked Summers to take Ogborn into a back room and strip search her. A security tape showed Ogborn, crying and covered only in an apron after the strip search, enduring further humiliation that continued for more than three hours.
According to court records and security camera tape, the caller’s requests became more bizarre as the situation proceeded. Eventually, Summers called her fiancé at the time, a middle-aged man named Walter Nix Jr., to come to the restaurant and guard the teen while continuing with the caller’s demands while Nix went back to work.
According to the tape, Nix, while continuing the phone call, made Ogborn remove her apron, jog in place with her hands in the air, do jumping jacks, stand on a chair and, eventually, Nix began spanking her for several minutes at a time.
The taped showed Summers reentering the room several times, at which point Nix would throw the apron back to Ogborn and remove it again each time Summers left.
Eventually Nix ordered Ogborn to perform oral sex on him.
The abuse stopped when a second man, a maintenance worker at the store, was called into the room, picked up the phone and refused to follow the caller’s instructions.
Nix was later convicted of sex abuse, sexual misconduct and unlawful imprisonment and sentenced to five years after pleading guilty in the case.
