EPP's thread of current events:

Did anyone hear about this Novartis mixup?

Over the counter packages of Bufferin, Excedrin, No-Doz and Gas-x may actually contain narcotics. :face:

Awesome, that works for the rest of us.

Big Pharma's lack of QA and consumer issues aren't really a political event, but I wouldn't expect a chemist to understand that... No, wait... :face:

Someone got arrested in Squirrel Hill today around 11AM right by the Giant Eagle. I don't know what they did but the police there were being chuckle effs and making fun of the guy.

If only the political thread discussed current events. Something big happens, I go to the political thread to read people's take on it, and it's not being discussed. Instead people are arguing arcane political points, defending their political beliefs, and blaming everything on statists. Very tedious.

That was kind of my point in starting this thread.

Current events and Politics aren't always the same.

With an election on the horizon, the political thread will probably 'heat up' (imagine that), so I figured we could use another place to talk about things like Van Der Sloots guilty plea and the like.

If the "EPP's" part of the title is offensive to anyone, I'll be happy to change it.

The BP in New Stanton was robbed. During the robbery an off-duty state trooper was across the street chowing on some pizza in his car. He witnessed a man putting on a ski mask before entering the store. Upon exiting the store the robber was staring down the barrel of a gun... THERE WAS A FIRE FIGHT! Actually the gunman gave up and was taken into custody. He was the same man who robbed the Youngwood Moose a couple days prior. The officer was later quoted saying, "Now my pizza is cold, this day has been terrible." That part isn't true either.

DENVER -- LeBron James and Tim Tebow have vastly different backgrounds and play different sports, but James said Friday that he can relate to the high-profile Broncos quarterback. "I love to see what a guy can do when his back is up against the wall and everybody counts him out," James said Friday night before the Miami Heat's game against the Denver Nuggets. "I'm in that same boat sometimes."

James has forged a relationship with Tebow, the Broncos quarterback, over the past ...

“You know, he didn’t want to get specific,” Paterno said. “And to be frank with you I don’t know that it would have done any good, because I never heard of, of, rape and a man. So I just did what I thought was best. I talked to people that I thought would be, if there was a problem, that would be following up on it.”
