A man wearing a cowboy hat and a dress was arrested in Salina, Kansas, after leading police on a strange high-speed pursuit on Saturday.
A deputy clocked Aaron S. Jansen, 29, of Dover, New Hampshire, driving faster than 90 mph, authorities said. Jansen was able to drive around spikes that were set up at the junction of Interstate 70 and Highway 81.
He eventually drove into a soybean field and drove in circles for 40 minutes while officers set up a perimeter around the field, deputies said.
The scenic little energy-boom mountain town of Rifle, CO had a new business open up within its town borders recently: A new restaurant owned by 2nd Amendment zealots and self-professed Christians called (I hope you’re sitting down) “Shooters.”
“I consulted with my Christian friends and everyone said ‘Shooters’ sounded like a bar or a strip joint,” Lauren Boebert said with a laugh. “But I thought, this is Rifle — it was founded around guns and the Old West. We called it Shooters and started throwing guns and Jesus all over the place.”
Don’t worry, they don’t serve alcohol.

I was going to try to set this up somehow, but words fail me.
A candidate running to represent Michigan’s 95th House district in the state legislature wants you to know that once you look past his bizarre sexual fetish and multiple felony convictions, he is a rock-ribbed conservative Republican, whose “stool of conservatism” is held up by “faith, family and freedom.”
Michigan Live reported Friday that Saginaw’s Jordan D. Haskins dismisses the arrests and prison time as the results of youthful indiscretion and said that he is ready to “move on from that and do what I can” to serve his state as a Republican state Representative.
On four occasions between April of 2010 and January of 2011, Haskins broke into vehicles on public and private property, disconnected the ignition wires, then started the engine. As the wires snapped and spit sparks, Haskins would masturbate to climax in a sexualized ritual he calls “cranking.”
It says something that this guy who spent actual prison time for jacking off to errant electrons in other people’s automobiles sees life as a GOP candidate for office as some kind of lateral transition.

You have to wonder what the heck the robot will look like by journey’s end.
According to Smithsonian Magazine a genderless robot called HitchBOTwill travel across Canada from Halifax to British Columbia alone, while interacting with fellow travelers in July.
HitchBOT was created by David Smith and Frauke Zeller, both professors following their dream to see a robot hitchhike, according to the HitchBOT website
The video of a Jeep Grand Cherokee striking a car transport trailer and going airborne during a north-central Kansas crash is making the rounds on the Internet.
The driver, a 41-year-old Manhattan, Kan., man, was injured in the crash about 9:05 a.m. Tuesday along westbound Interstate 70 about 8 miles east of the Manhattan exit. His injuries did not appear to be non-life-threatening, according to Trooper Ben Gardner, a spokesman for the Kansas Highway Patrol.
The video shows the driver drifting to the right shoulder of I-70 and running up the back of the trailer, which hitched to a Ford F-350 parked alongside the highway. Nobody was in the truck, according to a preliminary crash report.
The creepiest book ever?
This book is covered in human flesh. Really.
Harvard scientists confirmed today that a volume in one of its libraries contained a book that is “without a doubt” bound in human skin.
The phenomenon is called anthropodermic bibliopegy and it used to be fairly common until — well, frankly, we stopped doing that kind of thing.
There were three such books suspected to be in the Harvard libraries, but testing found that two of the three were actually bound in sheepskin.
The final book in the triumvirate is authentically human.
Photos of Hamster Rear Ends Are Hit in Japan
Hamsters in Japan are going where not even top supermodels have dared to go before-into the pages of books featuring photographs of their rear ends.
Two books devoted to images of hamsters’ posteriors have already sold nearly 40,000 copies combined in Japan, according to the publishers, with a third book set for release later this month. Fans of the craze have coined the term “hamuketsu,” which combines “hamster” and “ketsu,” or buttocks in Japanese.
“The photos in the book are all shots of hamuketsu,” Yukako Minami, a spokeswoman at Sekai Bunka Publishing Inc., said. The company released “Kawaisa-ni Monzetsu Hamuketsu,” or “Hamuketsu-So Cute You Could Faint,” on April 19, with an initial print run of 7,000 copies. “We’ve had multiple reprints and already shipped 30,000 copies total” since then, Ms. Minami said.
The 72-page collection features all kinds of hamsters in a variety of sizes and colors, but in each case the creature’s backside faces the camera. Male hamsters appear to be more popular because they have bigger and rounder buttocks, according to the publisher. The pictures of furry roundness help “soothe the hearts” of viewers, said Ms. Minami.
Here are some more. You know you want to see them.
