In Yellowstone National Park, it’s getting difficult to see the animals because of all the signs warning morons that wildlife is wild. Some are brief, while others go on about how bison can stand 6 feet tall, weigh over a ton, rumble along at 30 miles per hour, and stomp [...]

First, the joy of victory. Then, yeah, the agony of defeat. But you gotta wonder who was the dumbest in this tragicomedy: a hyperopic bank official, or the customers who thought they could get away clean with easy money. This instance of idiocy began when an unnamed officer at Commonwealth [...]

As the siege went on, authorities began setting off [...]
