Geocache blown to smithereens by Oklahoma Highway Patrol bomb squad after some goofy ninny called police. Edmond, Oklahoma Police Sgt. Scott Fees: "An item that’s called in as a pipe bomb gets investigated as a pipe bomb.” [even if it's not, it's gets blown up because we like blowing shit up.--Ed.]

Geocaching is a growing hobby in the U.S., maybe worldwide, as GPS devices have become less and less expensive. People place items in a hidden container, post it's GPS location on geocaching websites, then people look for them to find what's inside. It's been made more popular by people leaving items of value in the geocaches, such as jewelry or souvenir trinkets.

This would be newsworthy maybe only in Oklahoma, Iranian native runs for Congress. Fran Mo-ghaddam, 28 year Oklahoma resident, born in Teheran, Iran, announced her candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives for District No. 1, Tulsa.

Maybe the Amish are right, God doesn't want a church to have computers. Lightning strike destroys church's computer system.

Blood-sucking parasites make appearance in Oklahoma. No, not lawyers, an insect known as the blood-sucking conenose or the kissing bug was found in a household in Norman, Oklahoma. I'm getting itchy thinking about this one.

Tulsa homeowner has gas pains. Natural gas service to a resident near 81st and Harvard in Tulsa has been cut off due to gas leakage detected in the soil. Shutting off the gas has had no effect. Officials suspect there is a capped and buried oil or gas well in the area. So far, no answers. Homeowner worries they won't have any heat next winter. All I can say is light the yard on fire, the house will be warm and it's free.

Enid, OK - Pilot caught refueling a rented airplane loaded with 431 pounds of marijuana claims he thought he was flying rugs, not drugs. Apparently when they were passing out brains, he thought they said trains and asked for a little bitty one.

Again, from the "do people still fall for this shit" file: Duncan, Oklahoma police are warning of a lottery scam that utilizes official looking mail. It is similar to the internet scams. Apparently just as effective.

Not related, at least I don't think so: Okay police chief and four officers fired by town council. The Okay council, not okay with Chief Myers, also accepted the resignation of the one remaining police officer in Okay. For now, the Wagoner County Sheriff's Officer deputies will respond to calls in Okay, but will not patrol the streets on a regular basis.

I thought it was bad when I stuck my cousin Mikey in the back of his hand with a dart. That was nothing. Prosecutors are considering charges on a 10-year old boy who shot his 14-year old friend in the head when they were playing cops and robbers inside his grandfather's Cement, Oklahoma home. The victim is brain-dead but being kept alive until his organs can be harvested.

Miss June Bug crowned at the June Bug Bash in Ada, Oklahoma. June McSwain Scott takes over for 2005 Miss June Bug, June Fulton. I'm seeing a trend here. Would someone name their child June just so they could be a future Miss June Bug?

Don't think Oklahoma has an oil-based economy? It does, or did, anyway. Mineral rights trump surface landowner rights. Yes, according to Oklahoma law, a landowner cannot stop an oil company from drilling on their land or a coal company from strip-mining it. The only point up for negotiation is how much they'll get paid, and if they can't agree it will be determined by a court.

Like a plague of locusts, a crapload of Jehovah's Witness conference goers descend upon Tulsa. My JW neighbors to the south should be in extasy.

Thanks to our old bud pz for finding the story of the principal in Guymon, Oklahoma who kicked an atheist girl off the basketball team because she wouldn't pray with them, lied about it, took a punch at the girls dad, lied on the stand, lost .. and then had his home damaged by a tornado: A Bible Belt Story

:tmlol:

BTW, Dingfod .. your avatar is getting progressively more disturbing. This isn't part of a trend is it?

Maybe. I don't know. It's a temporary phase I'm sure, part of my fanatic devotion to HBO's Deadwood series and the character Al Swearengen.

I've had people that expressed complete surprise when they find out I'm an atheist. I guess they thought we had horns and a bad case of sunburn.

The Okie Doke Diamond, a 4.2 carat diamond found at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas by an Oklahoma State Trooper. It was given the Oklahoma moniker because no other diamond found there has been named for Oklahoma.

It's time again for that annual pasttime: the Okie Noodling Tournament. For the uninitiated, noodling is catching large catfish by sticking your arm into holes along the bank of a river or lake and grabbing the fish by the lip and yanking them out. Real fun.
