Which one of you dunnit? $4.8M in gold stolen on I95 in NC

02 March 2015 - 04:48 PM


Armed robbers stole about $4.8 million in gold bars on Sunday from an armored truck traveling north along Interstate 95 from Florida to Massachusetts, authorities said Monday.

The two security guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami reported pulling off to the side of the interstate about 6:30 p.m. Sunday after their armored truck began having mechanical problems in Wilson County, the sheriff's office said.



IMHO, at least one of the drivers is in on the theft.

(Panda says he's drunk and in Canada? hmmmmmmm)


Sounds similar to the Loomis heist. I was on the Federal Grand Jury in '98 that overheard much of the evidence. They couldn't stop themselves from spending money and the wife told stores and the bank that the money (cash still wrapped) was from her husband signing to the be the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys (not as if Aikman had retired yet). If she had said the Browns or Chargers no one probably would have noticed.

Just watched Predestination [spoiler tags]

Alien sequel - confirmed - Neill Blomkamp

19 February 2015 - 11:44 AM

well if Neill's concept art is any indication, he's going to disregard Alien 3 & 4. I'd like to see Hicks, Newt, Bishop, and Ripley back together again. Ridley Scott as the producer is probably for name only. Doubt Ridley is getting any allowed to make any decisions after the Prometheus debacle.



Eight days ago, "District 9" director Neill Blomkamp said that 20th Century Fox would make an "Alien" sequel with him "tomorrow." Turns out he was just one week off. On Wednesday, Blomkamp announced via Instagram that his "Alien" sequel was officially in the work. Fox will release the film, with original "Alien" director Ridley Scott acting as producer.

So is Tiger done or what (part 2 1/2)

04 February 2015 - 11:53 AM

Happy's previous thread has been archived so I couldn't reply....but Tiger is reaching the dosPoptarts level of WTF did I just skull my chip over the green again? Of course I would be ecstatic if I shot an 82.




Things reached a new low last week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where Woods managed his wasted game into dead last in the field, 12 shots from the cut. He now has finished last in two tournaments in succession, and his second-round 82 in Phoenix was the worst of his 1,109 PGA Tour rounds.
It's like watching Willie Mays flounder in center field for the New York Mets, Johnny Unitas getting benched in San Diego, Hakeem Olajuwon averaging seven points for the Toronto Raptors. The obvious difference is that all of those sports legends were at the end of their illustrious careers.


Robin Hood & Legolas, step aside....

The production value needs quite a bit of help...reminds me of those QB promo vids where they throw footballs it into moving shopping carts from the upper stadium seats.



Lars Andersen has spent a decade honing his archery skills to levels seen only on medieval battlefields, using ancient texts and tapestries for guidance. This video shows the 50-year-old firing at moving targets, from moving targets, using his feet, spearing soft-drink cans, hitting the ring-pulls from soft-drink cans, and much more besides. He can even catch an arrow fired at him and shoot it back in one swift movement.

To capture his grand finale — splitting a moving arrow — took years of preparation and 14 takes. The trick, he says, is to hit the target arrow just behind the head so that the shafts fluctuate against each other, splitting the bamboo (while not flinching at the thought of impending death, of course).
