From the Cambridge News and Crier, 16 Dec:

"Guards praised for tackling man who shot banana.
Security guards have been praised by police for tackling a teenager
who fired a gun at a banana in Cambridge. Dimitry Palikhata, 19, has
been jailed after firing the revolver in the Tripos Court
accommodation block of the Bell Language School ... A student told
[the security guards that] Palikhata, who is from Russia, had fired
the revolver out of the window of a communal kitchen and then at a
banana ..."

Make of that what you will!

"In other news, vic-k has gone missing since the previously reported incident occurred. While we should not speculate about these to events being connected, several groups are claiming that this was foretold by the Mayans as a precursor to the end of the world."

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

I'm staying away from Leicestershire.

My tropical fish stayed the same size for years in a 20 gallon tank: I put them in a new 50 gallon tank and they grew huge. And that’s why I refuse to buy bigger pants.

Being of the barrister's agency Nyhar, Leth, & Hotep, I am the representative on record for young Mr Palikhata. We are pleading self-defense in this case. That banana had it coming, long antagonizing Mr Palikhata with its herbaceous Musa goodness!

Please, let us not dole out such careless public speculation.

He was trying to make the banana split.
