Man-made Shooting Stars for 2020 Japan Olympics!

If they can pull this off, it will be the greatest show ever attempted. The seem to be silent about the possibility that the manmade meteorites may come in different colors, leading to the sky being lit up in a Kaleidoscope.

If I can figure it out – I’m going to Tokyo for this.

2020 Tokyo Olympics May Open With Huge Meteor Shower Launched By Satellites

Japan will attempt to go down in Olympic history by kicking off the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with a man-made meteor shower, Quartz reported.

 The Japanese research company ALE plans to use satellites to deploy up to 500,000 manufactured shooting stars into orbit during the Olympic opening ceremony. The project is known as Sky Canvas.

The imitation meteors, which ALE refers to as “source particles” or “the ingredients of a shooting star,” will be discharged by satellites and orbit a third of the length around the Earth before entering the atmosphere. Here, they will burn up in a process known as “plasma emission,” according to the startup’s site.

The secret formula for Sky Canvas’ pellets was researched and developed at Japan’s Nihon University which has also experimented with different colors, according to TechTimes. ALE has also considered using the particles to display images or words in the sky.

The synthetic shooting stars will not come cheap. TechTimes reported that each pellet comes at a price tag of around 1 million yen or $8,100. The high cost of the materials hasn’t deterred ALE, which hopes to launch its first test satellite at the end of 2017, according to Qaurtz.

Cost is not the only potential obstacle. Earth’s crowded atmosphere means collisions between Sky Canvas and other orbiting structures could occur. However, ALE has insisted Sky Canvas is safe.

The project claims to utilize a database from the Joint Space Operations Center, or JSpOC, which tracks satellites and space debris. ALE claimed it has used this data to develop “software that calculates the probability of our particles colliding with other objects.”

Sky Canvas can be aborted up to 100 minutes prior to launch if weather or concern over collisions pose a safety threat, according to ALE. As for the satellites, they are projected to eventually enter the atmosphere and burn up, much like the faux meteors, over a period of 25 years.

The high cost and design considerations required to bring Sky Canvas to Japan seem to be worth it for thestartup. The unprecedented display would be visible over a 62-mile radius and be seen by an estimated 30 million people in the Tokyo area.

Ultimately, Sky Canvas would secure Japan’s place in Olympic history.

Man “Busjacks” Metro Bus in DC

Washington DC’s Metro System converted to fare cards quite a while back. So there is little to no money on a Bus. So why someone would hijack a Bus is a bit of mystery. Looks like the hijacker may have been trying to blow the bus up by driving it over the gas pumps like in the movies.

Crazy people doing crazy things (with guns) everywhere!

Hijacked bus kills pedestrian in D.C.

Authorities say a man attacked a bus driver, stole the bus, then struck and killed a man after the bus jumped a curb at a gas station.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier said at a news conference Tuesday that the man with a weapon attacked the driver. She says passengers fled the bus and the driver hit the emergency button before getting off himself.

Lanier says the man drove off and as the bus pulled into a gas station it went over a curb and hit the man. She says the man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Lanier says the man who stole the bus appeared distraught as officers took him into custody. CBS affiliate WUSA-TV reports the alleged hijacker was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Lost Time Traveler Robs Arby’s

Lots of Nuts and Fruitcakes out there in Americaland. Some even get elected to office.

With the worst mental health system in the industrialized world, it isn’t getting any better.

Beam me up, Scotty! There is no intelligent life here…

Man claiming to be a time traveler from the year 2020 steals chicken and bacon from Arby’s

A man claiming to be from four years in the future ran into an intersection, kicking cars, before running into an Oklahoma City Arby’s where he hopped over the counter and stole some chicken and bacon.

Dante Rashad Anderson, 36, started at the Carl’s Jr., yelling at employees to give him food but when they refused he took his case to Arby’s, according to KOCO News.

“I got bacon and chicken and I scared the lady,” Anderson reportedly said to police. “She thought I was going to hurt her, but I was not. I was just hungry and wanted some food. That is what I have to do to get food.

He went on to say that he knew he would go to jail for stealing the food but, “no one wants to help me out.”

“I am from planet Earth 2016 and am four years advanced on you, and you guys are always trying [to] kill me,” the police report said. “On my planet Earth, everyone is dead and I walked here from there.” He’s explaining a kind of “Last Man on Earth” episode.

MSGT. Gary Knight from the Oklahoma City Police Department says that Anderson was possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic, intoxicant or suffering some type of break with reality. Knight did not comment on the possibly of time travel, however.

Police ultimately arrested Anderson for complaints of assault and battery, larceny and two destruction of property and booked him in the Oklahoma county jail.

Ohio man shoots up own home with AK-47 after imagining a burglar

William Chesser (Trumbull County Sheriff's Office)

Home Alone at 28…

A man in Warren, Ohio is facing charges after he shot up his own home because he feared that noises could be a burglar.

WKBN reported that 28-year-old William Chesser contacted 911 dispatchers to report a possible break in. Officers arrived on the scene and found Chesser waiting in his car.

Chesser told officers that he became paranoid after hearing cars driving past his home and knocking sounds coming from his windows, according to a police report. Believing that noises in his home could be a burglar, Chesser said that he ran into one of the upstairs bedrooms, jumped from a two-story window, and then fled to a neighbor’s home to call 911.

Police at the scene observed that the front door was kicked in and several windows were broken. After noticing the smell of gun powder, officers observed bullet holes in the stairway wall.

An AK-47 and spent shell casings were found laying on the floor in a hallway near the stairway, the police report said. A .38 special revolver was also recovered from the home.

Officers said that Chesser admitted to firing both guns because he suspected that a burglar was making noises by breaking into his home.

Man Steals $200,000…In Quarters!

Oooooookay! I have no idea – other than it has to be heavy – how much a $50,000 bag of quarters weighs…But you have to believe this guy wasn’t going o make a fast getaway!

I mean…What are you going to do with that? Pay every parking meter in NYC for 3 years?

Take your date out to dinner, excuse yourself after the check comes to go to the car to get a $100 bag to dump on the table?

A quarter weighs 5.670 Grams. $50,000 is 200,000 quarters which would be 1,134,000 Grams or 1,134 Kilograms, which would be around 232 lbs – say 250 lbs with the bag.

Brink’s Employee Charged With Stealing $196,000 In Quarters

A former security worker for Brink’s Company has been accused of stealing $196,000 while on the job — all of it in quarters.

Stephen Dennis was charged on Monday with one count of bank theft by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Dennis, 49, was working as a money processing manager for Brink’s at its Birmingham branch in early 2014, when the robberies took place, according to a Justice Department press release.

His job gave him access to the Federal Reserve Coin Inventory. The coins he is accused of stealing were stored in ballistic bags, each containing $50,000 and place on skids inside Brink’s Coin Room.

Dennis’ last day on the job was Feb. 20, 2014. An April 2014 audit of the Federal Reserve Coin Inventory discovered four ballistic bags containing a large amount of beads and just $1,000 in quarters, placed so they were visible  the neck of each bag.

A subsequent investigation revealed that on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014, Dennis came to Brink’s on his day off and collected four empty skids and four empty ballistic bags, which he filled with beads. The skids and the bead-filled bags were placed back inside the coin room.

The money that Brink’s was holding belonged to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and the company refunded the missing coins to the bank.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Dennis has agreed to plead guilty to the charge and to repay his former employers.

Dennis also faces up to 10 years in prison and an additional $250,000 fine.
