The Beefy Crunch Burrito incident

Man upset by price gets in shootout with police; no one hurt.

The price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 and the man at the Rigsby Road Taco Bell drive-thru had just ordered seven.

The fast food customer was so disgruntled by the price hike he shot an air gun at the manager, displayed a semiautomatic assault rifle and pistol while in the restaurant’s parking lot, fled as police were called, exchanged gunfire with three officers who pulled him over, then barricaded himself in his hotel room — all over $3.50 plus additional tax.

The final incident in the burrito-triggered spree happened Sunday afternoon at the Rodeway Inn on North W.W. White Road, engaging SWAT negotiators in a more than three-hour standoff, according to officials and witnesses.

The man, whose name was not released because he had not been charged, faces three attempted capital murder charges for the exchange of gunfire with police plus possible other charges, said police spokesman Sgt. Chris Benavides. No one was injured in the incident.

Channing Tatum Is Crazy.

I wake to see Channing Tatum’s face, framed by a camouflage Snuggie,  wobbling above me. “Hey,” he whispers, exhaling a cloud of booze so  thick I can practically  see it in the chilly air. “I think we should go into the house before  anyone sees  us out here and shoots us or something.” Near us, beneath the bushes we  slept under, are a half-empty bottle of Patrón, a glow stick, an  unopened bag of Stacy’s Pita Chips. I’m wearing a Snuggie, too. We are  probably not exactly what the residents of this tiny mining town deep in  the California desert would expect to find outside their windows.

The first paragraph of Jessica Pressler’s rip-roaring profile of Tatum in GQ / March 2011. We posted the pictures earlier this week. The story is one of a kind. Seriously. How often in this genre do the author and the movie-star subject wind up getting drunk, stoned and wrapped in Snuggies and sleeping bags for an entire night under the stars in California desert ghost town? Right. Once.

So, here’s the thing about Right Now and The World: shit is crazy. I think we all know about The Birds (Hitchcock is currently rolling in his grave, realizing that this is so much scarier) and the fish and the bees and the LOST numbers and that lady who tried to call the police on her boyfriend to make him propose and every other piece of chaos that is heavily implying that the seams are showing on the Matrix and the end is nigh. And some people are really and truly freaking out about all of this.
But you are not! You recognize that Tami Taylor wouldn’t believe in aliens. You know that  unless you’re a scientist or the government or Anderson Cooper, your  concern is not actually helping. Or maybe you don’t even think twice  — you only see the logical side, the rational side, the side that sleeps easily at night and doesn’t hyperventilate in the office bathroom. 
“Holy god,” you are thinking to yourself, “I am a grown-ass woman and I can recognize that the world is a bananas place where initially inexplicable things happen and very often we later get explanations for them. OR NOT. Whatever. Life has to keep going! You cannot stop and weep over every small oddity, or talk endlessly about what the moon is doing to your romantic life, or fret about the possibility that North Korea has black magic astrotechnology. There is work to be done! SNAP OUT OF IT, people!”
Pin this badge this badge a little crooked if you want, you earned it.

If it is the end, we might as well enjoy it right?
