I don't know why it's taken this long to search Youtube for Manowar:

Story about people stealing manhole covers, I like this line, "They used to say the streets around here will swallow you up, but they were talking about drugs and guns." Because drugs and guns no big deal, but big rare holes in the street now we've got a problem.

"In Cherry Hill, New Jersey, a man stole a statue valued at half a million dollars, cut it up and sold it for scrap in Camden. Total scrap value: $4,000." What the hell are we doing with our spare time? http://www.dealextreme.com/ Crazy deals on tons of stuff. They have so much crap for less than$2 shipped (everything is free shipping).

I thought this was pretty interesting. It shows the spread of Walmart across the country. Some things I noted, first how there were no colonies or stores that were far away from an area that was already covered, it just spread. Also you can notice some definite borders it resisted crossing for whatever reason. NC has one, and there is a SE diagonal line before the mid Atlantic. Also how late it was before any showed up here (I can barely remember the Walmart on 73 opening).
