Spider infestation leads to recall of 65,000 Mazdas
Mazda is recalling 52,000 Mazda6 cars because they attract cobwebs:
The recall of 2009 and 2010 Mazda6s is due to “a certain type of spider” that “may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line and this may cause a restriction in the line,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website. Another 13,000 of the cars sold in Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico are also being recalled

Christchurchian auctions off the boulder that destroyed his building
An enterprising fellow in Christchurch is auctioning off the 25-tonne boulder that destroyed his building as a “landscape feature” with proceeds going to the ChCh Earthquake Relief Fund. He calls the rock “Rocky.”
He is in pristine condition (just a little bit of concrete dust). Suitable for garden feature, or as in our case a magnificent addition to your living area.
Rocky will enhance your “indoor outdoor” flow considerably, especially if you load him in through the garage roof like we did.
Sorry, but we are unable to deliver Rocky but would be happy for you to pick him up and roll him away (please mind our neighbours when you do)
POST SCRIPT: The bolder was sold for a shade above $10,000 ! (I wonder if that includes transportation costs?!)
Very original indeed! Substitute an egg with ….(what else?) an egg!
