Fans sue Idaho hockey arena after discovery that $7 beers are actually same size as $4 beers

A group of minor-league hockey fans have sued the owner of an Idaho arena after they discovered they had been paying more for “large” beers that were the same size as “small” beers.

The potentially class action lawsuit claims the owners of CenturyLink Arena in Boise defrauded customers by selling tall, narrow cups of beer for $7 that held the same amount of liquid as shorter, wider cups sold for $4.

Plaintiffs Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William, and Brittany Graham are seeking more than $10,000 in damages.

In the lawsuit, Peck claims he has attended at least 30 events over three years at the arena and purchased beer each time, and the other plaintiffs said they had purchased at least one $7 beer at events they attended over five years.

The suit was filed after hockey fan Gwen Gibbs posted a YouTube video showing her boyfriend, Heath Forsey, pouring an entire large beer into one of the smaller cups while they attended an Idaho Steelheads game Saturday.

The arena’s president said Monday that CenturyLink would change the size of its 20-ounce large cups to 24 ounces and evaluate its concessions during the summer offseason.


When there's money involved, don't ever trust ANYONE! Not even your hometown hockey arena.

Why are these numbers even? I don't understand this...

Bunny does a Binky...

If you ask me, these two are up to no good...

Was anybody looking?

I've never been more sure of anything in my life...

That it always pays to wait until all of the details are in until you're sure about anything at all.

Republican challenger to Lindsey Graham calls senator ‘ambiguously gay’

At a press conference held Thursday to announce their solidarity in opposing Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of the four Republican candidates running against the incumbent senator referred to Graham as “ambiguously gay”, according to The State.

The news conference, held to announce a pledge between the challengers to support whomever ended up in a runoff with Graham, took an awkward turn when candidate Dave Feliciano stepped to the podium and addressed the issue of Graham’s sexuality.

“It’s about time that South Carolina (says) ‘ Hey, we’re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina’, ” Feliciano said. “We’re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party. We’re done with this. This is what it’s about, all of us coming together and saying, one way or the other, one of us is going to be on that ballot in November’.”

Questions about Graham’s sexuality have arisen previously but the senator has dismissed them.

Before speaking, Feliciano, a former police officer from Spartanburg with no previous political experience, signed a pledge with state Sen. Lee Bright, businessman Richard Cash, and attorney Bill Connor promising to endorse whichever candidate advanced to face Graham.


Well, I guess we can figure out what's always on Dave's mind, can't we?

Bad Cop, No Donut - 14 Mar 2014: Unarmed airman shot in gut by Alabama police as he lay on ground

Unarmed airman shot in gut by Alabama police as he lay on ground following traffic accident

Police shot a 20-year-old airman as he lay on the ground following a traffic accident along Interstate 85 in Alabama, the man’s family said.

Air Force Airman 1st Class Michael Davidson was traveling Thursday evening from Texas to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, near Goldsboro, N.C., in a 2004 GMC Envoy when he changed lanes and clipped a semi-truck with his driver’s side mirror, according to police.

Davidson stopped and got out of his SUV to exchange insurance information with the semi’s driver, the airman’s father told the Opelika-Auburn News.

“He said he didn’t get that far,” said Billy Davidson. “When (he was walking) to the truck, he said he heard something but couldn’t tell what it was. There was a lot of noise, but (he) could see the reflection of the lights off the truck — the police lights. Then he did what I told him to do. I told my boys if you see police lights (to) stop, put your hands up and turn around.”

The elder Davidson said his son held up his arms, holding his wallet in one hand.

“The next thing I know I was on the ground,” Michael Davidson told his father. “That’s when they shot me. I didn’t realize he shot me. I didn’t know what happened. It was so fast. They couldn’t have been there three or four seconds when I was shot.”


Malaysia Airlines Expands Investigation To Include General Scope Of Space, Time

Assuming the actuality of wavefunction collapse, Malaysia Airlines officials say flight MH370
could currently be located in any possible alternate future.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA—Following a host of conflicting reports in the wake of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 last Saturday, representatives from the Kuala Lumpur–based carrier acknowledged they had widened their investigation into the vanished Boeing 777 aircraft today to encompass not only the possibilities of mechanical failure, pilot error, terrorist activity, or a botched hijacking, but also the overarching scope of space, time, and humankind’s place in the universe.

The airline, now in its fifth day of searching for the passenger jet carrying 239 passengers and crew, has come under fire for its perceived mishandling of the investigation, whose confusing and contradictory reports have failed to provide definitive answers on everything from how long the missing plane remained aloft after losing contact with air traffic controllers, to whether the flight made a radical alteration in its heading, to the very dimensions of space-time and the nature of reality, and what exactly it is that brought us into existence and imbued us with this thing we call life.

Additionally, the airline confirmed it had expanded its active search area to include a several-hundred-square-mile zone in the Indian Ocean as well as each of the seven or 22 additional spatial dimensions posited by string theory.

“We continue to do everything in our power and explore every possible lead—both Cartesian and phenomenological—to locate the aircraft as quickly as possible,” said Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, who went on to say that authorities were still actively seeking tips from anyone claiming knowledge related either to the flight, or to the mechanisms by which consciousness arises, or to the question of why anything physical and finite exists instead of nothing at all. “At this stage, we can’t rule anything out: not crew interference with the transponders, not a catastrophic electrical failure, not the emergence of a complex topological feature of space-time such as an Einstein-Rosen bridge that could have deposited the flight at any location in the universe or a different time period altogether, nothing.”
