Radar gun for Hot Wheels?

I want one of those Hot Wheels radar guns for my own amusement. Bear in mind that it isn't limited to just working with the toy cars: it also works with bikes and such. I could even join Jay Santos' Citizens Auxiliary Patrol and warn drivers of (regular size) cars that they were over the speed limit. Plus, it measures in both MPH and KPH, and it can adjust for the size of HW cars (1/64 scale) as well as measure real speed.

Now, of course, it should be pointed out that simply by buying this product you have no arrest authority or anything.

Everybody wants to see Pauly Shore punched in the face

Former movie star Pauly Shore has been reduced to playing comedy clubs in Odessa, Texas. Unfortunately, his attempt to silence a heckler went awry as Shore ended up getting punched in the face. Afterwards he reportedly said, "F*** all you fuckin' white trash [unintelligible]".

Florida: giant rats as big as house cats

Florida (aka "America's Wang", aka "Floriduh") adds yet another item to its long line of accomplishments with the news that it's home to a species of giant rats.
