You could win this 'What The Hell Did Bill Handel Say?' t-shirt.
Fed up with being given yet another unimaginative packet of worksheets to mindlessly fill out in lieu of an actual lesson, one high school student from Duncanville, Texas, tells his teacher as much, and is kicked out for it.
A precocious preteen who isn't afraid of a little street-side confrontation called out a police officer for illegally parking during a beverage stop -- and caught it all on camera.
Jeremy, a 12-year-old boy, "found a cop disobeying" while out one day in September. The officer had parked his motorcycle on the sidewalk in front of a Terrible Herbst gas station, Gawker notes, and when the officer walked out with a mega-sized drink in hand, Jeremy wanted to know why exactly he needed to park so haphazardly.
So, the 12-year-old proceeded to call out the cop all while recording the discussion.
"Um... hello?" Jeremy asks. "Is there a reason for you to park on the sidewalk? Is it like an emergency or anything?"
"Because I can," the cop responds.
"Can I see your badge number?" Jeremy asks, to which the officer responds, "What are you a junior lawyer?"
The cop avoided Jeremy's request, revved up his bike and asked to see an ID. Since Jeremy is only a minor and didn't have that kind of information on him, the officer accused the kid of loitering and drove away. (MORE at HuffintonPost.com)
Do you believe LA has more lost or unnoticed funds?
During years of cuts to basic services, Los Angeles city officials say, nearly $43 million piled up unnoticed in a Department of Transportation fund because of an accounting error.
The discovery of $42.6 million will be a welcome one-time infusion into next year's budget, officials said, but has left them worried that other such funds may still be undiscovered.
Had the money been discovered sooner, it might have added a few million dollars annually to the city fund that pays for police, fire and other basic services during years that city employees were forced to take furloughs and pay cuts.

In a week in which umpires twice became the story of games because of high-profile mistakes, Major League Baseball took action on Friday, handing a two-game suspension to Fieldin Culbreth, the umpire who on Thursday incorrectly allowed an illegal pitching change in a game between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels.
The Culbreth controversy erupted when
The switch was questioned by Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, who cited Official Baseball Rule 3.05(b), which states a pitcher who has yet to face a batter can only be removed because of illness or injury. But Culbreth ruled against Scioscia, and the Angels said they would play the remainder of the game under protest. They went on to win, 6-5.

Beyonce, Mila Kunis and Kate Upton are just some of the bodacious bods we aren’t surprised to find on “Maxim’s” annual “Hot 100″ list, but there is one person who made the list this year that we would never expect to see.
That’s because we can’t see her.
