Dateline.... Hong Kong

Grand Theft Auto V becomes latest battleground of Hong Kong protests.

The Hong Kong political crisis is now playing out in the virtual world.
Popular online video game "Grand Theft Auto V" has become a battleground between protesters in the semi-autonomous Chinese city and their rival players in mainland China.
The online duel began after Hong Kong players discovered that their in-game avatars could dress like protesters, wearing black clothing, gas masks and yellow safety helmets. They shared the discovery last week on LIHKG, a social media platform and discussion forum similar to Reddit that is popular in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong has been rocked by anti-government protests for more than six months, with escalating violence and anger on all sides. The demonstrations began in June after the government introduced a bill that would have allowed the extradition of people across the border to face trial in mainland China.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
It seems flying with a pet opossum can be troublesome. Gerald Tautenhahn thought he had everything taken care of before traveling with his furry friend, Zatara, but he said that wasn’t the case. Two months after his father passed away in Austin, Texas, Tautenhahn wanted to spend time with his mother and cheer her up by bringing Zatara along for the trip. “I called around. I called the Department of Transportation,” he said. “They said if it’s OK with the airlines, (it’s) OK with us.” According to Tautenhahn, JetBlue said it wasn’t a problem if Zatara was in an approved pet carrier. So, the pair flew to Texas with no issues. But when it was time to come back to California, a federal air marshal told Tautenhahn he wasn’t sure if it was OK to have an opossum on board. “And then they said, ‘Well, how did you get here?’ Just like this, I flew on a plane,” he said he told them. Tautenhahn said he was told he couldn’t fly back and that him being allowed on the first flight was a mistake. “I did my homework, and I was allowed to fly out there,” Tautenhahn said. “The least you can do is let me return home with her.” He said a representative encouraged him to rent a car and drive back to California. After four days in Austin, Tautenhahn said he booked a ticket on United Airlines, paid the pet fee, put Zatara in an approved carrier and walked on board. He was soon back home. But Tautenhahn has a word of advice for anyone else looking to travel with an opossum.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A 17-year-old stole a plane at Fresno Yosemite International Airport and crashed it into a nearby building on Wednesday, airport officials said. It happened near Shields and Winery avenues at the Signature TECHNICAir Aircraft Maintenance building. Around 7:30 a.m., a 17-year-old breached the fence of the Fresno Yosemite International Airport and entered a King Air 200 propeller driven aircraft and was able to start one engine, airport officials reported. The incident occurred in the General Aviation area of the airport. “The aircraft then began to move and pivot and crashed into a building and a fence on airport property,” airport officials said. “The aircraft never became airborne, and there was no fire. The aircraft sustained substantial damage. No injuries occurred in this incident.” No passengers or commercial airlines were ever at risk in this incident, airport officials said. Airport and Fresno police officers responded to a 9-1-1 call of the aircraft theft and crash. Fresno officers arrived first and contacted the teen, who was seated in the pilot’s seat and wearing the pilot headset. She appeared to be disoriented and was uncooperative when she was taken into custody for theft of an aircraft. The female will be booked at juvenile hall later Wednesday. Family members showed up to the scene and told us they were contacted by law enforcement who said their 17-year-old daughter had taken the plane. The motive is still under investigation but there is no indication of any ties to domestic terrorism. No other information was immediately available.
