People played dominoes or slept in their cars to pass the time. Drivers at the front of the line said they had waited for more than eight days to fill up.

Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson tells New York City Mayor Eric Adams that he needs to address the “root cause” of the border crisis after a feud this week with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over bussing migrants to New York City.
A Portland strip club forced to close during the crisis has found an innovative way to stay in business -- with a curbside food delivery service it calls "Boober Eats." The Lucky Devil Lounge closed its doors this week as businesses across Oregon closed and residents went into isolation to prevent the further spread of the virus. As in Portland reported, owner Shon Boulden was trying to find a way to generate some business and originally came up with the food delivery idea as a joke -- especially the play on words taking off the popular service Uber Eats -- but the concept generated so much interest on Facebook that he decided to launch it for real. Boulden told that the establishment will still be offering its full menu outside of alcoholic beverages, and would have two of the dancers deliver it to the doors of patrons. They will even get a bit of a show, Boulden noted, saying the delivery women will "wear pasties and booty shorts, drop off the food, dance for a second and then move along" -- all while keeping sanitary with disinfectant spray. As the Z100 report added, the idea allows the dancers and kitchen employees to keep working to cook and deliver the food, and the bouncers will be serving as drivers.The curbside delivery is one of the ways that suddenly shuttered businesses are trying to carry on amid the nationwide shutdowns. As reported, sports venues across the country are donating food they had purchased and stored for games that have now been canceled, sending them to local food banks to help people in need. In Los Angeles, the Staples Center sent a hoard of food to the Midnight Mission, making it the largest one-day donation in its history. "At that point, we were ready to lockdown the arena and go into full hibernation mode," Payman Khania, Staples Center's vice president of hospitality and retail strategy, told . "We realized there wasn't much that we could do with any of the food, so we decided to figure out how much we could donate." Sports are not expected to return anytime soon, with the NBA suspending play indefinitely and Major League Baseball pushing the start of the season back until at least May. It was also not clear when the Lucky Devil Lounge could re-open, but the kitchen is currently taking orders, with its dancers ready to deliver.
The Russian KGB allegedly found the mummy of an ancient alien astronaut in the 1960s. The story of Project ISIS, a secret Russian expedition to Egypt in 1961 to uncover the "Tomb of the Visitor," was first told in a documentary titled The Secret KGB Abduction Files by the U.S. network Sci-Fi in 1998. The documentary a video purportedly documenting part of the top secret "Project ISIS" KGB expedition to Egypt. The black and white footage that shows Soviet personnel recovering the mummy of the alleged alien astronaut from a sarcophagus inside a tomb in the Giza area was reportedly obtained through a Russian intermediary, who claimed it came from the secret archives of the KGB. Although it is not possible to from the footage that the body found inside the tomb was the mummy of an extraterrestrial being, Sci-Fi that forensic experts examined the video and confirmed its authenticity. Part Of the Report On Project ISIS Obtained From KGB Archives The mummified body was found to be about 2 meters high, much taller than the average ancient Egyptian. Carbon-14 tests indicated that the body was about 12,000-13,000 years old, predating the Egyptian dynastic period. The dating raised intriguing questions about the identity of mummified body. Some sought explanation in Egyptian mythology, which identifies the founders of dynastic Egypt as gods from the stars who taught the Egyptians the knowledge and skills of civilization. The first king of the first Egyptian dynasty was the god-man Osiris who, according to legend, came down from skies in a "flying boat," a reference to an alien UFO, according to UFO enthusiasts. However, the Kremlin was terested in the possibility that the tomb could hold ancient scientific documents and artifacts of advanced alien technology that could facilitate scientific and technological breakthrough in the arms race. Alien and UFO enthusiasts have long speculated that the pyramids could have been navigational beacons for alien ships visiting Earth in ancient times. Such claims would seem incredible to skeptics and non-believers. But out-of-place artifact theorists and alien-UFO enthusiasts believe that only access to advanced alien technology and science could explain the sudden emergence of a technically advanced civilization, such as the ancient Egyptian civilization, so early in the history of human civilization.

Someone has been up to no good in Portland recently as passersby are amazed, embarrassed, or just plain amused to see hundreds of sex toys dangling from the power lines. The sex toys, in shades of white and orange, have been hung all over town. Making for quite the photo opportunity, the dildos have been hung up on the power lines in pairs, and there are literally hundreds of sex toys on display.
Throwing dildos over the power lines has become a thing in portland. They're all over town. — rabble (@rabble) According to Lisa Leddy of the Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement, they have received many and various reports of the rather embarrassing sightings. Naturally, social media, particularly Twitter, is ablaze with photos and funny comments about the hundreds of sex toys dangling from the power lines. Fortunately a spokesman for the public utility Portland General Electric, who manage the decorated power lines, says they don't believe the hundreds of sex toys pose any kind of fire hazard, but the story is of course getting pretty hot all on its own.
: All fun & games until your 6 yr old child asks, "What are those?" as they point to the dildos in the sky. — Paul Ogg (@JustOGG) The affected power lines cover several major commercial streets in Portland, so the sight of hundreds of sex toys dangling in the breeze makes for a mixed range of emotions. Some people are completely embarrassed, others amused, and some just plain curious about their origins.
Hundreds of dildos dangle from power lines in bizarre Portland sex toy craze — IBTimes UK (@IBTimesUK) Philly Voice quotes one of the residents, Lucila Cejas Epple, as saying she first spotted the hundreds of sex toys when attending a neighborhood street fair over the weekend.

It was a little busy at the Mississippi Street Fair.... oh and dildos hanging from utility lines — Reddit Portland (@redditportland) On some social media forums the comments are rife, with one saying that the problem appears to be growing."There were only two dildos on the lines when I was there." "Run for the hills, they're multiplying."As to how the hundreds of sex toys actually got up there, according to Yahoo! News they appear to have been tied together and hoisted up on the power lines in pairs, so that there is a counter-weight, rather like someone might tie shoelaces together and toss up a pair of shoes. While the story has only hit the media now, the video below was posted to YouTube on June 28, so the story of the hundreds of sex toys dangling from power lines has been ongoing for some time.
However, as to the prankster who is actually responsible for hundreds of sex toys dangling all over Portland, Oregon, no one seems to know. The subject does tend to bring to mind the story of CNN reporting a sighting of an ISIS flag in a gay pride parade, which actually had images of emblazoned all over it. That was definitely an embarrassing incident (for CNN anyway). [Image: Screengrab from YouTube video]
