Frenchman tried to kill fly with electric swatter, blows up his house

A man in Dordogne, France, accidentally blew up his own house while trying to remove a fly, local reports say.

Armed with an electric swatter, the man ó who is in his 80s ó chased the insect around his home, according to the local Sud Ouest newspaper.

What he didn't know at the time, though, was that there was a gas leak in his home. The reaction between the gas and the swatter caused an explosion that collapsed past of his ceiling, according to the report.

The man suffered a minor burn to his hand and his home is uninhabitable, Sud Ouest reported.

The fate of the housefly is unknown at this time.

Sleepy Donald closes out the RNC

After four nights of scalding and often shouted slash-and-burn attacks directed at Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, it was quite a shock on Thursday night when Donald Trump nearly lulled America to sleep with his Republican National Convention speech on the south lawn of the White House.

It's not that Trump delivered a soothing address filled with warmth and good feeling. During long passages he savaged Biden as a Trojan Horse who would deliver America-hating socialists and anarchists to power. Those were the more lively sections of the speech. The trouble is that the charges against Biden had been made at the convention by many others before Trump, sometimes in identical language.

But even when the precise words weren't recycled, they still felt like retreads because the speech was mind-numbingly repetitive. How many times did Trump say that if Biden is elected the Democrats would come for America's guns? That it was time to bring jobs back from China? That the stakes in the election couldn't be higher? It's as if the authors of the address thought everything in it was so important it needed to be reiterated two or three times.

And then there were the lists. Lists of personages and events from American history at the beginning of the speech, and then again at the end of the speech. Lists, sprinkled throughout, of all the ways America is gloriously exceptional. Lists of Trump's wonderful, stupendous accomplishments. Lists of the wonderful, stupendous things he will accomplish if he's re-elected. The last of these lists made the latter half of the speech sound more like an interminable State of the Union address than a nomination acceptance.

And all of it was delivered in the slurring, monotonous drone that Trump adopts whenever he's reined in by written remarks on a teleprompter. Throughout the second half of the address, you feel him breaking away from the script for a word here, a phrase there, like he was dying to turn the occasion into one of his vulgarity- and mockery-infused campaign rallies where he riffs for 90 minutes about his enemies.

Or maybe he was just trying to keep himself awake. I know the feeling.

Ted Nugent compares himself to Oscar Schindler.

NRA board member Ted Nugent responds to anti-fraud lawsuit: ďIím Schindler but I got a whole bunch of more Jews that Iím savingĒ

Nugent and Alex Jones team up to give away 100 NRA memberships

TED NUGENT (NRA BOARD MEMBER): I believe that the attacks on the NRA are the attacks on freedom by freedom-haters and we all see and know who they are. Right now is the time to give away NRA memberships to everybody you know because if it drives the freedom haters that batty, letís make them go crazy by getting more NRA--

ALEX JONES (HOST): And how do I do that? I am gonna buy 100 memberships today. I pledge 100 memberships today. How do I call? Do I call? How does the NRA do that?

NUGENT: Iíll tell you what, go to my website. There is a direct link to ďJoin the NRAĒ and a discount. Go to TedNugent.com and there's NRA memberships and remember, the NRA is a civil rights organization. Itís about your right to self-defense. How more pure can you get?

JONES: And itís 140 years old. And I know how nonprofits work, this is one of the beautifulest, best ones ever. If somebody in there did wrong, we were talking during the break, which youíre not saying they did, thereís no evidence of that, then they step down. You donít get rid of the organization. She let everybody know, Iím going to abolish it because Iím going to take care of the members. Thatís like saying Iím going to burn your house down because grandpa ate too many cupcakes.

NUGENT: Itís unbelievable. You know why they hate me, because Iím Schindler but I got a whole bunch of more Jews that Iím saving and the Nazis hate me for that.
