Animals, Fire, and Girls: Fat rat stuck in manhole rescued by firefighters in Germany KATE LYONS FEBRUARY 27, 2019 A multi-agency rescue operation has taken place in the town of Bensheim in Germany after a tubby rat became stuck in a manhole cover. The rat, still plump with winterspeck - which translates literally as winter bacon and refers to extra pounds piled on in the colder months became stuck after it tried to squeeze through a small gap in the sewer cover. The Auerbach volunteer fire brigade was called in, as was the Rhein Neckar animal rescue team, and together a team of about eight rescuers was able to raise the cover and pull the rat free. It took about eight firefighters and an animal expert to help the rat to freedom. Photograph: Berufstierrettung Rhein Neckar/ Freiwillige Feuerwehr Auerbach The rat had quite a lot of winter fat and got stuck on its hips _nothing was going forward and nothing back," animal rescuer Michael Sehr told news agency DPA Photos of the rat showed its head and rotund torso poking out of the hole, with its bottom half obscured by the sewer cover. In one image it seemed to almost be calling for hilfe. The fire brigade said the rat escaped unhurt. "The animal was subsequently released again into the wild. The fire department's operation was completed after a good 25 minutes," said the Auerbach fire department. After the successful rescue, two young girls presented the animal rescue teanm with a gift to say thank you- a drawing of a rat surrounded by love hearts with the word "danke!" written on it. Sehr told DPA he did not have any qualms about rescuing the rat. "Even animals that are hated by many people deserve respect," he said. True story

Gay, str8, bi, and the unknown 3:48 PM Say something This is the most bizarre yet pure thing I've ever encountered on grindr Are you going? these guys went and said it was wholesome and fun and look what he said Bowman also seid he puts on the event because he's a recovering alcoholic, "and it's just kind of like my way of giving back As an alcoholic, I haven't spoken to or seen my kids since 2004. I havent talked to my mother since '99, he sald. There's things that go on in life that you make choices about, and I chose wrongy. I chose the drink 've been sober for 8 and a half years now, and I just kind of feel the need, instead of being the asshole that I was, to be a softer, kinder, gentier, let's-get-together kinda guy Bowman, who is bisexual, said his barbecue is "not just for the gays advertised for the LGBT across the board, and then instead of putting the plus, I put the unknown, which got a lot of people's attention, he said. They were saying, the unknown what a cool way to say if you havent decided yer Surprisingly, even though the event went viral, Bowman said this year's barbecue was the smallest he'd had in the five years he's put it on. Setzer and his friend were the only guests who he hadn't known in advance, he said. But everyone had a blast, and that was the goal said Bowman. And the fire department really enjoyed it because they got a free meal on Sunday, and the homeless shelter, they enjoyed it because they got meals too Tm a people-person, and I enjoy people, so what beter way than to have strangers over and invite people and just have fun?" he said. "t probably sounds really weird, but you can get away with it in North Carolina Setzer said Bowman was "an absolute sweetheart and a really genuine guy," and he's so glad he went to the barbecue. orgy?utm-term-.ur270Klpv#yfXpzGdkZ Source:identifica 255,781 notes <p>A 61-year old bi dude used Grindr to organize a &ldquo;BBQ not n orgy&rdquo; via /r/wholesomememes <a href="https://ift.tt/2LTjcAl">https://ift.tt/2LTjcAl</a></p>

Amazon, Apparently, and Bae: bryce @BryceRoy22 Alexa, you're doing amazing sweetie. FOX 4 NEWS@FOX4 Police: Alexa calls cops on man beating girlfriend dlvr.it/PTrbXO naamahdarling: bae-in-maine: wantshimsorely: kittleimp: iopele: chrisdigay: A.I. is coming in more sympathetic than some people…it’s 2017 according to Amazon, the Echo (Alexa) CANNOT actually do this unless the woman set it up beforehand–just like you can put in a phone number so it’ll dial it when you say “Alexa, call mom” or whatever. the woman apparently programmed it to dial 911 when she said “Alexa, call 911″ (which the woman is heard saying on the 911 recording). so why am I nitpicking about such a tiny distinction? because Alexa WILL NOT call for help unless you’ve set it up this way first! this woman was REALLY smart to do that, because otherwise the Echo thing would’ve done nothing. don’t think your Echo will respond to “call 911″ or “call the cops/ambulance/fire department” unless you’ve set it up with the numbers first, and certainly don’t think it’ll hear sounds of a struggle and call for help without a direct command. otherwise think of how many false reports it would make just from overhearing TV and movies being on!  so instead of this being shared as “Amazon’s AI is going to hear that you’re in trouble and will call for help by itself!” this story should really be shared as “hey if you have one of these things, set it up to respond to a voice command CALL 911 before you’re in that kind of situation!” Also, for those in abusive situations, consider setting it up so you don’t have to say 911 to get it to call 911. You could program it so “call nina” calls 911. Sharing for the clarification and tip needing to pre-program Alexa beforehand. You could program it to “call nina,” “get help,” or some more obscure safeword command. Brilliant thinking on this woman’s part; a pity she was in such a situation she needed to do that. BOOSTING! Also boosting so that people won’t worry about accidentally having 911 called on them by their spybot and getting shot by police.
