Ladies, What’s Your Size?
A nightclub in Singapore is attracting attention for a marketing strategy that offers free drinks according to women's bra sizes.

They are our personal friends who will simply guesstimate the women's bra cup sizes," said Ms Ho, "We don't condone touch tests," she said.

City code fines woman $27,000
The used car was a blessing for Diane Pearson of North Port, a single mother with three children and a long commute to work. And after receiving the 1998 Mercury Sable from Lighthouse Baptist Church, she found her drive to Sarasota a bit less stressful.
But now she has a problem. North Port took Pearson to court over fines of more than $27,000 for keeping her old car in the driveway without a license plate. If the city wins its case, Pearson will be left in financial ruin.
Seems North Port is a city that likes to regulate and enforce many things -- from how often you mow your grass to the cars in your driveway. And one of their rules is cars in driveways must have a current plate.
