International Brotherhood of Pipe Swingers  president Tony Siciliano (back to camera) sets a pick on high school marathon runner Debbie Marie Reilly.  The ploy worked, allowing union member Jerry "Piccolo" Szatkowski to deliver a timely backhand— and win the race by a scant.0001/second.

Amazingly, Dubai doesn't have a sewage infrastructure to support its skyscrapers, including the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Drivers said they'd been queuing for three days! Unsurprising then, that many dump their loads into storm drains that lead directly to the open sea. Tourists are warned of the risk of contracting serious illnesses like typhoid and hepatitis if swimming on Dubai beaches. Wikipedia on sanitation in Dubai.

According to a commenter on You Tube, this is a temporary fix while a sewage system is being built.  Those Islamo left-handers can sure throw the old turdball though wot wot.

Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946.

The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. The event is sometimes cited by firearms ownership advocates as an example of the value of the Second Amendment in combating tyranny.

I'm rather stunned that I never saw this film, nor heard of the Battle of Athens before Mofux set me the link. Most likely I always dsimissed it as some Greek thing (as I almost did this time).   Interesting comments on YouTube.  Similarly, I'd guess that very few are aware of how the mayor of New York in 1863 dealt with Code Pink draft rioters. Huzzah!
