Lights went off across the world yesterday, at 8:30 p.m. local time, as millions of us went in the dark for one hour in a symbolic gesture highlighting concerns over climate change. There were said to have been more than 2,800 locations worldwide participating.
Landmarks around the world joined the World Wildlife Fund-sponsored event including the Egyptian pyramids, Vatican, Niagara Falls, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Acropolis in Athens and the Las Vegas casino strip. Organizers hope this year’s event will send a message to world leaders meeting Copenhagen, Denmark, in December for a major summit on climate change.
On Monday, volunteers with the Oakdale California’s Rotary Club plan to fry up 400 pounds of the private parts of bulls and serve them to diners who pay $50 apiece for the sit-down meal.
The event will benefit the Oakland Cowboy Museum and they are expecting 450 people to enjoy the bull testis. Last year they raised $28,000. Oakdale’s annual Testicle Festival is always a big hit.
Where not to put your finger…
A Michigan man was pouring a fuel additive into his sport utility vehicle when a piece of paper fell into the gas tank. He tried to fish the paper out, but his index finger became stuck in the gas tank. It took another two hours before emergency responders cut the gas tank tube out of the vehicle. Doctors later removed his finger from the tube and he received two stitches.
