Nitwit News – August 23

Arizona anti-alcohol cops pounced on a dad at a Cardinals NFL preseason game after he had his 15-year-old son hold his beer for a moment while dad took pics. The officers booted the family out of the stadium, and state liquor officials said that if they had been stricter, the dad could have gotten two years in jail.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security’s website has a tool allowing users to view the site in the fictional Klingon language from Star Trek. Greg Rivara, a spokesman for the department, said the language was offered alongside English, Spanish, Polish, Chinese and Russian as a promotion for the film Star Trek: Into Darkness earlier in the summer, but officials decided to keep it due to a positive response from the public and an increase in the website’s traffic. The language translation doesn’t cost the department any money because it uses the free Microsoft Translate service.
