Odds and Ends of the Week

A plane that was forced to land on a busy interstate was fixed and sent back on its way again after a few short hours and a few thousand very irate commuters.

Russians rate Putin an awesome leader … possibly out of fear of their “awesome leader.”

An 11 year old girl started a website for unwanted pets … how cool is that?

Just to one-up the girl above, though, this 12 year old girl rescued her siblings from a fire.

Still, this 7 year old proves one is never too young to be audited.

Of all places would you have guessed Los Angeles to have the tastiest tap water in the world?

Will Ralph Nader just never leave things alone?

  1. Of all places would you have guessed Los Angeles to have the tastiest tap water in the world?

    Well.. that may be because LA operates the biggest water treatment plant. They are able to turn waste water into drinking water in 45 mins. This was also the subject of one of the episodes of dirty jobs.

    I mean, it’s probably used everywhere, but it’s a little unnerving to watch the episode of Dirty Jobs and seeing poo floating on top of the water going into a pipe and miles and miles later, they open a tap and drink the water.
