Try Red Wing Shoes in Langley. I saw one at willowbrook while I was waiting for my car at Dale's. There's one by metrotown as well.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - A man was mauled by a 400-pound tiger at the Bronx Zoo on Friday after he leaped from a moving monorail train and plummeted over a protective fence.

The man was alone with the tiger for about 10 minutes before he was rescued by zoo officials, who used a fire extinguisher to chase it away. He suffered bites and punctures on his arms, legs, shoulders and back and broke an arm and a leg.

Zoo director Jim Breheny said the man was lucky to escape the tiger's clutches.

"If not for the quick response by our staff and their ability to perform well in emergency situations, the outcome would have been very different," Breheny said.

The tiger mauling happened at around 3 p.m. in the Wild Asia exhibit, where a train with open sides takes visitors over the Bronx River and through a forest, where they glide along the top edge of a fence past elephants, deer and a tiger enclosure.

Passengers aren't strapped in on the ride, and the man apparently jumped out of his train car with a leap powerful enough to clear the 16-foot-high perimeter fence.

The man was mauled by an 11-year-old male Siberian tiger named Bashuta, which has been at the zoo for three years. After zoo staff chased the tiger off, the man was instructed to roll under an electrified wire to get to safety, Breheny said. Zookeepers then called the tiger into a holding area, he said.

The 25-year-old man was conscious and talking after the mauling, Breheny said. A hospital spokeswoman said he was in stable condition on Friday night, but his family has requested that no further information be released.

Officials believe he was visiting the zoo by himself.

"When someone is determined to do something harmful to themselves," Breheny said, "it's very hard to stop that."

The Bronx Zoo, one of the nation's largest zoos, sprawls over 265 acres and contains hundreds of animals, many in habitats meant to resemble natural settings. Its exhibits include Tiger Mountain, Congo Gorilla Forest and World of Reptiles.

The tiger that mauled the man was returned to a holding area where it usually sleeps at night and will not be euthanized, zoo officials said.

"The tiger did nothing wrong in this episode," Breheny said.

There are 10 tigers at the Wild Asia exhibit, but Bashuta was the only one on display at the time. There are no surveillance cameras in that area of the exhibit.

Zoo officials said they would review safety procedures but believe this was a highly unusual occurrence.

"We review everything, but we honestly think we provide a safe experience," Breheny said. "And this is just an extraordinary occurrence ... somebody was deliberately trying to endanger themselves."

Two news stories


girl skips town to France with her Math teacher



Quote:


A schoolgirl who sparked a cross-Channel police hunt is believed to have travelled to France with her married 30-year-old maths teacher, it emerged today.

Fifteen-year-old Megan Stammers was caught on camera with Jeremy Forrest as they drove onto a Calais-bound ferry at Dover on Friday evening.

Forrest is a teacher at her school, Bishop Bell Church of England School, in Eastbourne, East Sussex, although it is not clear whether she was in his class.

The schoolgirl was also understood to have decided to elope across the Channel with Forrest after setting off to school.

Friends went on Twitter to say she had been abducted and taken to France but police said they did not have any fears for Megan's safety.

A team of officers, headed by a Chief Superintendent, was today following up a number of enquiries into Megan's disappearance but a spokesman admitted that there had been no new sightings of the pair.

Aunt admits to killing nephew goes to trial and found innocent because she's too fat to have been able to commit the murder (even though she claims she suffocated him)

Quote:
Spoiler!


a woman who testified falsely to murder but was found innocent on the grounds that her burgeoning obesity could never have allowed her to commit the crime.

TLC's Half-Ton Killer? tells of how, in March 2008, Texan Mayra Rosales, 31, told police officers that she had killed her two-year-old nephew, Eliseo Jr, by accidentally rolling on top of him while babysitting.

Such was her 1,100lb frame, Mayra imagined her story to be believable, but after doctors revealed that the boy could only have died from a blow to the head, the reality that she was so big she couldn't move her arm, became her attorney's main argument for her defence.

Getting a suit for HS Grad.

3 Options -

Banana Republic = ~$200 for Jacket + Dress pants
Calvin Klein = ~$350 for Jacket + Dress pants
Le Chateau = ~$300 for Jacket + Dress pants

Im thinking of going with the BR one as its only HS grad and nobody really gives a shit. Quality was better than Le Chateau too.

Opinions?

I'd go for Le Chateau as the mid-priced suit - it will likely last you a while. They have nice slim fitting suits as well, don't be one of those guys who goes looking like he's wearing his dads suit.

Haha definately, im not too sure about Le Chateau though, imo BR has better quality and feels nicer, it would actually be in the $350 range if they didnt have sales going on. Knowing that BR is from the same chain as Old Navy/Gap is whats stopping me from buying this right now.

I did try them all on, CK fitted probably the best, BR a close 2nd, and Le Chateau was similar aswell.

Originally i wanted Hugo Boss but then i saw the 500-600$ price tags

Had a friend go to Moores for a pair of pants during their "buy one get one free sale". Pants were $60, he bought 2 since BOGO, they then charged him $15 per pair to hem the bottoms, WTF? So his 2 pairs of pants, where one was "free" cost him just over $100. They always find a way to get their money. I don't ever remember getting charged for something as simple as hemming anywhere, so long as the pants were purchased there.

He went to Langley and dealt with a guy named Rider or Somthing, guy was such a fucking idiot took him 1.5 months to get the second suit and when my friend complained and said he wanted a refund on the second suit the guy told him to bring in an old pair of pants and shirt to get $100 off this 2 month delayed suit

Experts say the world could be on the verge of a significant bacon shortage because of rising feed costs and declining pig populations.

Britain's National Pig Association said Tuesday that an international shortage of bacon and other pork products is now "unavoidable," and expects higher prices for consumers soon.

Why is there no 'Forum Jump' tab if you're not logged in? Adding that would be great.
