Man Stole Buses and Drove Their Routes

In the category of benign crimes, this young man stole buses from a bus-yard, drove their routes, then returned the buses in the evenings. He didnt touch the fares and made the stops. Hmm, maybe he should have just applied for a job. In that case, he wouldn't be going to jail...

Google Maps Not Displaying Israel Information

Here's an interesting one... Google Maps displays cities and roads information for most countries, including all of them in the middle east, except Israel... Take a look at this map and you'll see what I mean... No Jerusalem, no Haifa, no Tel Aviv... What's going on here? Is this another instance of Google breaking their "Don't Be Evil" rule, just like their censoring of Tienanmen Square pictures and probably many many more? Just as a point of reference, Microsoft shows all the details on their Live Maps...
