Weird Newz, Strange Products, Stupid Criminals, etc.


Kaba Kick is Russian Roulette for kids. The player points the gun at his or her own head and pulls the trigger. Instead of bullets, a pair of feet kick out from the barrel (which is shaped like a pink hippo). If the gun doesnt fire, the player earns points.

Burglary suspect's getaway in pedal boat is foiled, deputies say

By Dominick Tao, Times Staff Writer
In Print: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

PALM HARBOR By pedal boat and bicycle, a fleeing burglar clad only in boxer shorts couldn't get away quite fast enough, authorities say.

Pinellas County sheriff's deputies arrested Christopher L. Schaumburger on Monday morning 200 yards offshore in Lake Tarpon after witnesses said he burglarized two homes on the 3000 block of Marian Drive.

"We've had suspects try to jump in the water before, but never before have I seen a pedal boat used as a means of escape," said sheriff's spokesman Thomas Nestor, who has more than 23 years in law enforcement.

The Sheriff's Office says Schaumburger, 20, first broke into the home of Mary Vogelsberg, who heard breaking glass around 9 a.m. and found a pair of sunglasses on her windowsill.

She did not see anyone suspicious around. But not long after, someone did.

Vogelsberg's neighbor, Nicholas Hammond, awoke to use the bathroom and found Schaumburger, a transient, ransacking his home, the arrest report said.

Deputies said that when Hammond confronted Schaumburger, the man fled and jumped on a bicycle he had hidden a block away. Hammond gave chase on foot and eventually caught up with the fleeing suspect.

But Schaumburger was armed with a pocket knife. Hammond backed off and called authorities.

Deputies said Schaumburger fled down a street with a dead end at Lake Tarpon. With nowhere to go, authorities said he hijacked a docked pedal boat and tried to escape across the lake.

A Sheriff's Office helicopter was called in. According to the arrest report, the helicopter crew reported that "there was a lone male pedaling the boat dressed only in boxer shorts, and the boat appeared to be taking on water."

Deputies enlisted the help of resident Robert Putnam, whose pontoon boat was docked at the lake, to intercept Schaumburger.

Schaumburger was charged with armed burglary, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and attempted burglary of an occupied dwelling. He is being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $65,000 bail.

Do they have something in their dress code about underwear too?  Sheesh!


Ambulance chiefs threaten to sack paramedics who wear novelty socks

Ambulance chiefs are threatening paramedics with the sack if they insist on wearing novelty socks.


Published: 11:25AM GMT 04 Feb 2010

Uniformed staff have been barred from wearing socks with images of cartoon characters, jokes and garish patterns after bosses branded them "unprofessional".

The strict uniform policy, issued by North West Ambulance Service, also bans wrist watches, visible body piercing, excessive make-up and certain tattoos.

Staff have been warned they could be disciplined and ultimately even sacked if they flout the dress code which forms part of their terms of employment.

However, the move have been condemned by critics who have dismissed the novelty sock ban as a step too far.

Jonathan Fox, a spokesman for the Association of Professional Ambulance Personnel, said: "I am a firm believer in having a dress code but this is stretching the rules too far. The majority of staff wear boots so their socks can't even be seen.

"North West Ambulance Service should be addressing more important issues like why paramedic training has been stalled for months."

Mr Fox, a serving paramedic with 30 years service, continued: "We have been fighting to have knee pads in our work trousers, which has been a sad omission, and pushing forward the provision for frontline staff to have body armour.

"To concentrate on socks seems fairly innocuous - it's not like there's been an epidemic of novelty sock wearing! Perhaps this is just something to divert our attention from the bigger issues."

Management insist the code is designed to ensure health and safety standards are met, and includes bans on clinical staff wearing wrist watches and some jewellery because they can carry germs or injure patients.

Jon Lenney, NW Ambulance Service Director of Organisational Development, said: "We would expect our staff to wear uniforms provided and do not feel that novelty socks with slogans and images are appropriate for presenting a professional image to patients and members of the public.

"The trust does provide full uniform, including plain dark socks, and as the role of frontline staff requires physical movement socks can be visible."

I just don't understand why anyone would be pulling out this kind of ad at this juncture. This is more like a last ditch, desperation ad. I sure hope its not the harbinger of things to come.

I know! That's what I thought the first time I saw it on the morning news. They kept playing it because it is laughably creepy. I have to say that I lost some respect for Carley Fiorina on this one.

Lingerie model runs one of world's largest drug gangs, according to police
Angie Sanselmente Valencia, a former lingerie model, is believed to be heading one of the world's largest drug gangs.


By Ben Leach
Published: 7:42AM GMT 24 Feb 2010


An international arrest warrant has been issued for the 30-year-old, who is suspected of recruiting beautiful women and using them to move drugs to Europe and North America.

Many of these women are believed to be other lingerie and glamour models who compete in international beauty pageants, whom Valencia describes as "unsuspicious, beautiful angels".

She is thought to be on the run somewhere in either Mexico or Argentina. Her drug syndicate was exposed in December last year after a 21-year-old blew the whistle after being caught with 55kg of cocaine at Buenos Aires airport.

Investigators believe the beauty pageant winner quit modelling and left her native Colombia for Argentina to set up the empire last year.

They tried to trace her via her Pomeranian lapdog but found it registered to a disused warehouse. Her drug runners were paid £1,300 to board flights from Colombia to Cancun, Mexico, with bags of cocaine every 24 hours, according to The Sun.

The drugs were then trafficked to Europe. Valencia was crowned Columbia's "Queen of Coffee" in 2000 and is said to have split from a Mexican drug baron nicknamed The Monster to rival his empire.

July 15, 2009
A Well-Planned Retirement - From The London Times:

Conman

Outside the Bristol Zoo, in England , there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 coaches, or buses.

It was manned by a very pleasant attendant with a ticket machine charging cars £1 (about $1.40) and coaches £5 (about $7).

This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years. Then, one day, he just didn't turn up for work.

"Oh well", said Bristol Zoo Management - "we'd better phone up the City Council and get them to send a new parking attendant . . . "

"Err . . . no", said the Council, "that parking lot is your responsibility."

"Err . . . no", said Bristol Zoo Management, "the attendant was employed by the City Council, wasn't he?"

"Err . . . no!" insisted the Council.

Sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain (presumably), is a man who had been taking the parking lot fees, estimated at £400 (about $560) per day at Bristol Zoo for the last 25 years. Assuming 7
days a week, this amounts to just over £3.6 million ($7 million - or $280,000 every year for 25 years)!

And no one even knows his name.

Woman gives birth three hours after finding she was pregnant
A hairdresser gave birth to a baby girl - just three hours after being told she was pregnant by doctors.

Belinda Waite, 21, had been to her local hospital several times during the past nine months and says she was told she had a severe case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and gout.

In fact she was pregnant with a healthy baby girl who arrived a month ago.

Miss Waite, known as Billy, from Bampton, Devon, said:"You read about these stories in magazines but you never think they happen to real people and I certainly never thought it would happen to me."

Miss Waite was staying with her partner Wyane Boyles, 28, when she unexpectedly went into labour.

Their baby daughter Louise Boyles was born at home weighing 8lb 14oz by Wayne's mum Syliva.

Miss Waite said:"It was obviously a hugh shock for us all but you have to get on with these things and we are really enjoying it."

She said she had not felt well for some months before the surprise birth.

"I did feel like something was moving inside me as the months went on. But I never considered I was pregnant and it doesn't seem to have crossed the doctors' minds."

Miss Waite went to her local hospital in Tiverton and doctors said it was likely to be IBS.

On Christmas Day she was taken to hospital again after her hands and feet swelled up and doctors assured her she was suffering from gout or an allergy.

On February 6th - the night before Louise was born - Miss Waite again went to hospital with pains throughout her body.

At 10pm doctors confirmed she was three months pregnant - in fact she was nine months pregnant - and Louise arrived four and a half hours later at 2.30am.

Miss Waite said:"I was really shocked. I don't think Wayne could believe it was happening.

"We hardly had time to think about it. No one believed us when we told them we suddenly had a child."

The hospital, run by NHS Devon, have not been available for comment.

Arizona town opens time capsule, can't find brandy
Supervisor says bottle was buried with other mementos in Arizona town
The Associated Press
updated 10:38 a.m. CT, Mon., March. 15, 2010
SOMERTON, Ariz. - A town in Arizona is missing a 25-year-old bottle of brandy.

When officials in Somerton opened a time capsule Saturday, they discovered mementos from 1985 but didn't find a bottle of Mexican brandy that was supposed to be in the capsule.

Somerton street and solid waste supervisor Pancho Soto was part of the crew that buried the time capsule.

He says he was surprised when it was opened and there was no bottle of brandy. Soto says it was there when the crew buried the capsule in concrete along Main Street.

The time capsule did contain letters from Somerton residents, photographs, a VHS tape and a 1981 Time magazine with a picture of President Ronald Reagan on the cover

Mystery knitter putting sweaters in trees



By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST CAPE MAY, N.J. - Someone is spinning quite a yarn over one New Jersey shore town.

 

An unknown person dubbed The Midnight Knitter by West Cape May residents is covering tree branches and lamp poles with little sweaters under cover of darkness. Mayor Pam Kaithern says police are looking into the guerrilla needlework, which technically is against the law because it is being done on public property without permission.

The mayor and many residents admit they're enthralled by the rainbow of colours that has popped up.

Resident Susan Longacre takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have gotten the treatment. She thinks it's great.

Even those who aren't thrilled admit the yarn is better than spray-painted graffiti.

Police arrest man in sword attack at Broken Arrow park

by: MATT BARNARD World Staff Writer
Monday, March 15, 2010
3/15/2010 10:10:23 AM

An irate Broken Arrow man tried to kill an acquaintance with a samurai sword Saturday at a public park, police allege.

Broken Arrow police officers arrested Shaun Alexander Krafft, 30, who is accused of arranging a meeting with the man at Leisure Park with intentions of killing him. The man arrived about 3:50 p.m. and Krafft charged at him with a samurai sword, police allege in an arrest report.

The man got into his car and tried to drive away from the park at 801 West Charleston Street. Meanwhile, Krafft stuck the blade through an open window and unsuccessfully tried to slash him, the report states.

The man drove to a nearby convenience store to call for help, and officers took Krafft into custody. The sword was recovered in a nearby creek and taken as evidence.

During questioning, Krafft told police details of the failed plot, including how he shooed neighborhood children away from the park so that they wouldn't see the attack, officers alleged.

The report didn't include details of why Krafft was angry with the man, but indicated that they had been in a previous argument.

"I was gonna kill him and not even shed a tear. He has made me snap," the report credits Krafft as saying. "He pushed me too far and I just snapped."

Krafft has had several previous run-ins with the law, including guilty pleas for driving under the influence, eluding a police officer and drug possession, according to court records.

He was charged with feloniously pointing a weapon, reckless handling of a firearm and assault in 2003, but the case was dismissed when a witness didn't appear in court.
