12 Hospitalized After Chemical Spill at Willy Wonka Candy Factory

Workers were making Nerds when a 5-gallon container of lithium chloride spilled


“It’s a product used in, I believe, the humidifying system here,” Itasca deputy fire chief John Radzinski said.
By 6 a.m., several of the employees had been treated and released at area hospitals. All are expected to be okay, officials said.

Information on how the spill happened has not been released. Radzinski said the hazmat response was “in an abundance of caution.”

Well, at least we know where nerds come from.

It seems I am in deep legal trouble, of yet an unknown nature

"Hi, this message is intended to contact you. My name is Kevin Mason and I'm calling to contact you regarding an enforcement action executed by the U.S. Treasury.
Ignoring this will be an intentional offense to avoid initial appearance before a Magistrate Judge or a Grand Jury for a federal criminal offense.
My number is: 360-203-0031. I advise you to cooperate with us and help us to help you. Thank you."

The message was in a loop that kept repeating until I stopped it. "kevin" had an Indian accent.

I must say, the first sentence is very interesting.

edited to add: the phone number is from western Washington state outside metropolitan Seattle.

Seems like a smart thing to do, don't ya think?


Officers may have shot Orlando club patrons

ORLANDO — Omar Mateen, the killer who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State, hid in a bathroom at Pulse, a gay nightclub where he had slaughtered scores of people. A wall of cinder block separated him from a team of police officers outside. For three hours early Sunday morning, crisis negotiators tried to end the siege.

Then Mateen — whom police said had acted “cool and calm” during discussions — talked about killing more people. Alarmed, police placed an explosive device against the wall and detonated it. The breach failed; the hole wasn’t large enough to allow for a successful rescue.

A cop rammed his Bearcat armored vehicle through the club wall. Hostages poured out. So did Mateen, guns blazing.
With quick efficiency, officers shot him dead.

A law enforcement source close to the investigation who asked not to be named said a crowd of up to 300 people and the complex layout of the dance club may have resulted in some patrons being struck by gunfire from officers.

.....this is how we coped without smart phones back in the day....

in the 80's and several decades before that.


Peanut tainted flour has been recalled..here is list of foods affected by recall:

After a commercial supplier recalled a batch of flour that may contain some peanut protein, snack-makers are recalling products made with the affected flour. Those snacks include major brands like Keebler, Famous Amos, Rold Gold, Mother’s, Murray, and Special K.

The list can be seen here..too much to post.

Edited to add:

This is NOT the flour recall as of last week. That recall was for listeria in the Gold Medal flour.

How the hell you get listeria and salmonella in stuff like flour I will never understand.

Here is one of the worse parts of the recent massacre

The AR-15 Bushmaster is a military grade assault rifle specifically designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible.
It was the same rifle used at Sandy Hook and at the movie theater in Aurora.
It was used during this shooting – the second worst in world history –
by a man on FBI’s terrorist watch list
but who had TWO legal concealed carry permits
and was allowed to purchase a killing machine.
