In this image taken from video provided by WRGB-TV, Albany, a fire burns in buildings, Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, in downtown Cohoes, N.Y. An inferno that destroyed or damaged nearly two dozen buildings in a city in upstate New York was sparked by an amateur bladesmith who apparently was trying to imitate something he saw on TV, officials said. "It is the worst disaster the city has ever seen," Mayor Shawn Morse told reporters at an evening news conference. (WRGB-TV, Albany via AP)  (WRGB-TV, Albany)

Chainsaw-wielding clown rips open boy's face when 'House of Scares' goes wrong in Mexico

The employee wearing the clown suit reportedly approached the teen as part of the "Scares" experience -- but he got too close while trying to scare the 17-year-old and struck the unidentified teenager with the chainsaw, leaving him with an inch-deep wound.

Cross that short cut thru Leonia, NJ off the list

I for one have been wazed into a back street, only to find out so was everyone else, and fully understand the reason for the ban. THe law will never last even the first challenge in court, well that is if NJ state or federal funds were used to make the roads.
