This is outta control!
Pink scrubs, Darth Vader mask, hatchet-wielding bank robbery suspect arrested - Rowland Heights
A man wearing pink hospital scrubs, a Darth Vader mask, black wig, gloves, and wielding a hatchet was arrested by deputies about three hours after robbing a bank inside a Rowland Heights grocery store Thursday.
At about 11:00AM on December 30th, a robber entered the Bank of America located inside an Albertson's grocery store on the 19000 block of Colima Road. An undisclosed amount of money was stolen. After robbing the bank, he was seen quickly leaving the store wearing the unusual disguise and weapon.
Walnut Sheriff's Station detectives of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and investigators with the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately followed up on several leads.
The investigation led to the identification of the suspect as Gregory Sanchez, male Hispanic, 46, a resident of West Covina.
The suspect was arrested by Walnut Sheriff's Station detectives at about 2:00PM the same day, while working as a Courtesy Clerk at the same Albertson's grocery store.
Bail is set at $100,000.00.
"Bank robbery is a very serious matter and very frightening to victims and witnesses. We are glad no one was hurt and that we have a suspect in custody," said Lt. John Saleeby, Walnut Sheriff's Station, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

This 3:35 min short was shot during the blizzard in NY the other day. It is stunning and the music fits well too! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
"Man in a Blizzard," by Jamie Stuart
This film deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent classic "Man With a Movie Camera." (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST.
I wrote Jamie Stuart asking how in the name of heaven he made that film. He e-mailed in return:
"The simple answer as to how it was done so quickly: practice.

List of animal species with 46 chromosomes
Humans have 46 chromosomes. But what about other animal species ?
There are surprisingly few comparative lists of chromosome numbers to be found on the internet. I admit : it does not make a lot of sense. What would be the scientific value of that ?
Just out of curiosity I searched a bit and as far as I know below is the only list of animal species with 46 chromosomes :
- Humans (Homo sapiens)
- Muntjacs (Muntiacus reevesi)
- Black rat (Rattus rattus) , but not all of them have 46
- European hare (Lepus europeus)
- Merriam’s ground squirrel (Spermophilus canus)
- Southern short-tailed shrew (Blarina carolinensis)
- Mountain beaver (Aplodontia rufa)
- Beach vole (Microtus breweri)
- Nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus)
- Kirk’s dik-dik (Rhynchotragus kirki)
- Grey vole (Microtus arvalis)
- Large bentwing bat (miniopterus schreibersi)
- Bolivian Tuco-tuco (Ctenomys boliviensis)
- Grevy’s zebra (Equus grevyi)
- Crowned Lemur (Lemur mongoz coronatus)
- Red Titi (Callicebus cupreus)

Do you know how the internet really works -- how you're able to read this article on a magical glowing rectangle attached to a keyboard? Neither do we. But if you ever have to explain the inner workings of the web to someone even less informed -- say, a homeless orphan from the 1800s -- you can now feign understanding, thanks to this handy cheat sheet created by flowchart guru Doogie Horner.

Another one leaves us.
Today, I caught the 5:45, Sunday screening of The Coen Brothers latest offering, True Grit at the Cineramadome at Arclight, one of the best theatres in Hollywood.
Btw, this is not a remake of the original film, but a new take on the book.
