One New Hampshire family is serious about the stars. So serious that a recent argument led to a father getting stabbed in the chest over which constellations he and his daughter were gazing at in the night sky.
Police got a call around midnight (which is typically still one or two hours before optimal stargazing time) about a stabbing. When arriving to the house, 49 year old Robert Svenson was laying on the floor with a stab wound in the chest.
If you’ve never wanted to grab your kid, some mountain bikes, and a GoPro, you will now. Check out the video after the jump – it’s of a father-son ride through a bike trail. The son, five year old Malcolm, has a GoPro strapped to his helmet and provides a running commentary during the ride.
Our buddies over at Fathers & Families put up a story last night about last Wednesday’s Seacoast Republican Women’s Breakfast with Newt Gingrich in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. What’s that, …
If you had to look up the word “inimical” after reading the Fathers & Families article title (linked at the end of this article), you’re not alone. The intelligent dudes at F&F, god bless ’em, don’t make it easy for us proles to get our heads around stuff sometimes. And I have a degree in Literature! In all fairness, the New Hampshire court was the one that used “inimical,” but F&F ran with it.
Anyway, it’s a great moment for fathers (don’t worry, it’ll pass and you’ll be back to the bottom of the socio-familial order soon!) – as a New Hampshire Supreme Court decided that a particular mother’s custody was not in her children’s best interests.
New Hampshire dude John Coughlin got a speeding ticket for driving 102mph in a 55mph zone. The kicker? He was rushing his wife to the hospital 20 miles away as she went into labor. When all was said-and-done, the child was born at the hospital with no complications.
John and his wife, Angela, are angry about the ticket, since according to John, “You’re still going to go fast in an emergency situation. You’re still going to do what needs to be done.” This is true. But this is also when you man-up and take one on the chin.
