  1. Hoses

    Looks like someone finally got fed up with people being too stupid to set up a sprinkler properly. Like them, I'm sick of getting hosed down for no reason while walking or biking on the sidewalk.

    Seems silly to call the police about it, but on the other hand, it provides interesting crime data and a good chuckle.

  2. what’s the deal with the shooting?

    this is probably not the right place to ask, but isn't it interesting that we have heard nothing about the homicide investigation of the Dajae Coleman?  My kids go to ETHs and while I take high school rumors with a grain of salt (or even half a grain), word there  is that "everyone knows who had the gun".  Any updates?
