Indiana man who got a Romney face tattoo not surprisingly unhappy about the election results

Eric Hartsburg of Indiana, was such a believer in Romney that he raised $5000 on ebay to get a gigantic Romney/Ryan logo tattoo on the side of his face. Now that the election is over and Romney is not president, Hartsburg is unsurprisingly disappointed. And we are all disappointed in him. More than the Zune tattoo guy.

Three teens and a deputy injured in the crash of a drunk driving simulator

Three teens and a deputy were hospitalized during a drunk-driving simulation gone wrong right earlier this week. The teenager who was driving was wearing a pair of goggles that are supposed to simulate what it’s like to be drunk, and apparently it worked pretty well, because the driver ended up flipping the mini Hummer after overcorrecting on a turn.

Next May, Indiana will get the world’s longest water coaster. Again.

For 2012, Holiday World/Splashin’ Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana will unveil the Mammoth, the world’s longest water coaster. Splashin’ Safari already has the world’s longest water coaster, the Wildebeest, so this will put the 2 longest coasters in the world in the same park. 

Located east of Wildebeest, Mammoth will begin with a conveyor ride up the water coaster’s lifthill. Following the five-story drop at a 45-degree angle, linear induction motors (LIMs) will propel the six-person round boats up additional hills, into dark enclosed sections and through twists and turns. Mammoth will cover three acres, increasing the water park’s size to 30 acres.


The real reason behind the Indiana State Fair stage collapse? Butters.

An IHCer who doesn’t want to be named sent me this video he made a couple weeks ago, and he put a lot of time into it, but I’ve been trying to find that tiny window between “too soon” and “old news”. I don’t think I ever found that window, and it might still be too soon, but here it is anyway. Dammit, it’s funny. dealwithit.gif

Sorry Indiana, no Harry Baals government center in Ft Wayne

So it turns out that the name “Harry Baals Center” was scratched from the list of names for a new government building in Fort Wayne because city leaders were afraid people might make fun of them. As if Fort Wayne has anything else going for it. Somehow, I just thought IHCers need to be keep informed. 


Fort Wayne, Indiana has a bit of a Harry Baals problem

Some people pronounce it “Bales”, but Harry himself pronounced it “Balls”. He was Fort Wayne’s longest serving mayor an now the city wants to name a city center after him. Only a lot of people, despite the fact that Mr. Baals was a well-respected local politician, don’t want to be the butt of jokes by having the Harry Baals Center in their town. Respect the Baals.

Well this is unnecessary: “The Next Top Homeless Person”

So now that Ted Williams is America’s biggest celebrity of 2011, this news station in Indianapolis decided to go around waking up homeless people in the snow to see if they could find the next Ted Williams. Fuck you, Indianapolis. I bet that news crew didn’t give a single one of those people a dollar or a quarter or even a hot cup of cheap coffee for their efforts. LOLHOMELESSPEOPLE.
