Not entirely sure this belongs here, but depending on who you are this is either pretty funny or pretty depressing/disheartening. I found it kinda funny cause I'm messed up like that...
www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/weird/Del-Woman-Agrees-to-Sell-Newborn-Son-131046238.html
And mother of the year goes to...

A new mom is in hot water after selling her newborn son for $15,000 so she could take her other two sons on a trip to Disney World, according to court documents.

Bridget Wismer, 33, was arrested at her home in New Castle, Del. after she and the alleged baby buyer, John Gavaghan, 54, of Philadelphia, were caught on a surveillance camera taking care of the last bit of paperwork, according to New Castle County detectives.

The baby boy was born on Aug. 31 and according to court papers, Wismer didn't want the child.

In early September, detectives were tipped off by Wismer's grandmother, according to police. They investigated, but couldn't substantiate the baby-selling accusation. In late September, police got another tip that led them to the place where Wismer and Gavaghan met to finalize the deal.

On Sept. 30, two days after Gavaghan had allegedly taken the 1-month-old boy home, police arrested Gavaghan at his Philadelphia apartment and placed the baby in foster care. Wismer was arrested that same day at her home.

I think it's hilarious because she got what was coming to her.

I would never spend $15,000 at WDW...I can get away with $200 for a whole week...seriously ($1000 if I wasn't a CM).

Big Thunder Refurb?

I just noticed it's scheduled to be down for almost 6 months starting in January. Did a search and couldn't find anything here. Anyone know what the plans are? I wouldn't think normal maintenance would be that long.

^ I don't think there's any details out there yet, only that it does look to be a lengthy (and much needed IMO), refurb.
