The metrics of poop

No. 1 reason to boycott Victoria? No. 2: Political pressure continues to build against the British Columbia government, which has failed to fulfill its promise to treat the sewage it pumps into the Strait of Juan de Fuca from Victoria. Several members of Washington state's congressional delegation sent a letter to the B.C. premier protesting the 82 million liters of untreated waste dumped into the strait every day.

Eighty-two million liters? It's bad enough the Canadians are dumping raw sewage; do they have to do it using the metric system?

Corvette bummer: Ever since a sinkhole opened up beneath the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky, visitors have come to see the hole as much as the classic cars.

It's only fitting the cars were thrown into a hole; the ‘Vettes, themselves, are sinkholes that money is thrown into.

Know when to fold them: Gamblers who won $1.5 million playing baccarat at a New Jersey casino were told to return their winnings after a judge ruled the casino wasn't liable because the cards played had not been shuffled before being dealt. An earlier settlement that would have allowed the gamblers to keep their winnings fell apart when they refused to drop a counter suit.

To show there are no hard feelings, the casino offered to comp the gamblers' drinks.
