They run great on water.

This was in Oswego County? I guess they just assume alcohol was involved.

BGates: They run great on water.


I have been to a bunch of water crossing competitions in the summer, and would have to say that a lot of cool things can happen when you're riding a snowmobile in August.

Better have more gas in the tank than water to shore though, they don't float well...

"Nothing good can happen when you ride a snowmobile in August"

This is what happens when you find a stranger in the alps!

(I've posted my immediate thought, and now, I'm off to read the article)

Probably could go under the "Amusing" tab as well.

Or meet a stranger in the Alps?

Idiots gonna idiot.

I don't know what's worse, the fact that I've seen this exact kind of accident before or the fact that I made sure it wasn't one of my relatives before commenting.

Such buffoonery deserves a "Yakety Sax" accompaniment. Too bad there's no video.

Deputies said "unsafe speed and operator inexperience appear to have been contributing factors in the incident.">

Typical police response. They HAVE to believe someone was doing something wrong. Always. Evidence or not.

CSB from my weekend: Our tiny dog slipped out the door early Saturday morning while the wife was loading her car or whatever it was she was doing The wife leaves for the day, not knowing she accidentally let the uncollared dog out.. At about 9:30AM the oldest dope boy wakes up and I expected to take the dog out, but notice the dog apparently wasn't in that boy's bedroom. No big deal - I expect the dog is sleeping with the other boy - not at all unusual. Around 11AM the other little 22-year-old boy wakes from his beauty sleep and now I'm aware the dog is not in our house. I call the wife and she insists the dog will wander the neighborhood and come home. I know better - this is very cute little dog you'd an idiot would pay a grand for if you wanted to buy. Without a collar this dog is the perfect target for "oh look, I found a stray, I think I'll 'rescue' it. Oh look, it's shaking and it's sad..." I walk and drive around several times over the course of the day, and as I expected, no dog. The next morning my wife and I drive, bike, and walk around. Then around 2pm I call the local police non-emergency number and explain "our dog got loose yesterday" just to see if perhaps someone reported finding one. And to the point of this story.....

The "sergeant" (funny in itself, military titles!) says to me on the phone "You're just now noticing your dog is gone?". That is what came out immediately after I told her my "dog got loose yesterday". Do these kind of judgmental type 'A's get sucked into the job or does the job turn psychologically normal people into presumptuous aholes? You'd think I'd waited 30 hours to report a missing toddler. We had been looking for our dog from the moment anyone knew it got loose, didn't call the police immediately because, first, it was our town summer fest weekend and the police are a little tied up, and, second, because you don't call the police first thing because you screwed up and let your (harmless) dog loose or lost your canary, and third, because I'd (half rightly) guessed someone swiped the little thing and that's that. Even when the police are being nice they are jagoffs. WTF? That Stanford prison experiment mentality thing is a real biatch.

Anyway, a woman did "find" our dog. She said it followed her around her house - didn't exactly say how it first went from being outside to being inside her house. The reason she called the police is so it could be returned to the owners she could legally keep it without being accused of theft. Her "good hearted" gesture was the way to legally steal it...basically. My wife thinks what the lady did is wonderful. The wife doesn't have a mean bone or conniving nerve in her body. Me though...I guess I'm a little closer to that assaholic but helpful cop.

Next time I don't find one of the dogs, or a pair of socks, or the wife or kids are an hour late getting home, I'm calling the cops...
