    Security Guard Fired for Seeing Ghosts Thu Nov 10, 7:30 AM ET



    DES MOINES, Iowa - A judge ruled that a former security guard who was fired for seeing ghosts cannot be denied unemployment benefits.

    According to a court ruling released this week, the former guard's allegation of apparitions does not constitute misconduct.

    The issue started on Sept. 11, when Wade Gallegos alerted his supervisor at Neighborhood Patrol of Urbandale that ghosts were haunting a neighborhood he was guarding.

    The supervisor arrived at the scene, where Gallegos showed him where the ghosts were still apparently standing.

    The supervisor claimed he saw nothing and fired Gallegos five hours later.

    The company found no signs of drug use or alcohol.

    Neighborhood Patrol challenged Gallegos' application for unemployment benefits, arguing he was guilty of misconduct.

    "Such beliefs do render the claimant unfit to act as a security guard," Judge G. Ken Renegar ruled. "The employer cannot have security guards who see ghosts and apparitions and inform the employer, and then the employer sends out the patrol cars."

    However, the judge ruled, seeing ghosts is not the type of misconduct that can disqualify Gallegos from receiving benefits.

    Same BBIIGG one--

    This one featured on the news while I was in Singapore. Seems this guy went out to start his generator in one of the outlying kampongs. When he didn't come back, his family went to have a look. This is how they found him. Burmese Pythons get pretty big, often get into the pigs, goats and occasional cattle.

    They were a bit gory, or I would. Wasn't able to really see the details, so I canned them a couple years ago. Wish I hadn't, was sorta educational. Snake anatomy is different... Fer instance, constrictor (pythons and boas) snake jaws (and others) are unhingable, and they can work the left and right side separately. They can open up quite a bit further that way, and can ram the whole thing down their gullets rather than swallowing. Neat trick, force feeding themselves. Ennyhoo, that is how the man wound up were he did, whole and unchewed. Will that do instead of real pix-- ??
