Oh, you thought you were done with Thursday, and could fully embrace your Friday footloose and fancy free? That's cute.

Hey, remember when Hulk Hogan sued Gawker out of existence in a Tampa Bay courtroom with not a little help from a billionaire venture capitalist with an axe to grind? Well, the Hulkster still has a suit against local radio personality Mike Calta, who is accused of having a role in leaking the Hogan sex tape, and a Pinellas judge just ruled that Calta must turn over his phone records to Hogan's lawyers. Let's not forget, though, that none of this would've happened if a dude hadn't said some racist crap and balled another dude's wife.

The city of Madeira Beach is considering raising the parking fee in its lots from $2 to $2.50 an hour. Which is a small price to pay for a beachgoing experience that's always a dependably convenient non-pain in the ass.

The St. Pete Police shut down two "unlicensed adult care homes" when they were discovered to be shitholes without electricity or running water. Because apparently being an "unlicensed adult care home" isn't enough to warrant getting shut down in and of itself.

And finally, two fugitives wanted in Indiana since 2003 were found and arrested in Polk County. Let that be a lesson, kids — if you get into trouble and go on the lam, you end up having to live in places like Polk County. (That's a joke. Parts of Polk County are rad. Lighten up.)
