Weird News Tidbits: Stupid Humans Edition


►1995 -- Bob Bornack's billboard marriage proposal to Teri Ungar in October in Wood Dale, Ill., was accepted. ("Teri, Please Marry Me! Love, Bob.") However, the billboard company reported that 10 other women named "Teri," who were dating men named Bob, inquired whether the message was for them including one Teri who was dating two men named Bob.

 

►A coroner ruled that the underwired bras worn by two women contributed to their deaths when lightning struck them while they huddled under a tree (London, England).
 
►Authorities in Tokyo began investigating the giant finance company Nichiei in November after two debtors reported being pressured by Nichiei loan managers to sell their kidneys and other body parts to meet payment schedules. According to a separate lawsuit, another Nichiei employee demanded a debtor sell his daughter into prostitution. Nichiei is the country's leading lender to small businesses.

 

►Two inmates who escaped from a prison in Tanzania soon gave up after being forced up a tree by lions.

 

►Synergy!: In October, the pharmaceutical division of Japan Tobacco, the  world's third-largest cigarette company, bought the rights to lung-cancer vaccines now under development by the U.S. firms Cell Genesys and Corixa. Now under one roof are the cause, treatment and potential prevention of lung cancer.

 

►Officials in Suwon, South Korea, showing off their 580 plush public restrooms to reporters in November, hinted that the toilets were one sure way toward greater world respect. "In this era of globalization," said a government cultural official, "it is important to become the leader in the world in the cleanest bathrooms." Toilet seats are heated, violin music plays, and tasteful paintings and flower arrangements adorn the rooms. There are weekly guided tours, and according to the official, some people arrange to meet inside to have tea.

 

►Leon Grigsby Martin, 33, blind and carrying a white cane, was arrested in Muskegon, Mich., in September and charged with robbing two stores of a total of $340. (He got only $20 from one clerk, who might have tricked Martin into believing he was giving him higher-denomination bills.)

 

►Canadian military officials told reporters in September that 23 of their 32 Hercules transport aircraft require expensive structural repairs to replace a main aluminum beam; the beams were corroded by urea acid from urinators who splash (or miss the mark altogether) in the planes' crude cargo hold toilets. And later that month, an official of the upscale University of Toronto Athletic Centre health club told the National Post newspaper that the reason its automatic-flush toilets weren't working is that men were too fast on the draw; because the members were often naked when using the urinals and thus did not take time to unzip and zip, some spent less than the minimum nine seconds needed to reset the flushing trigger.

 

►The year-old investigation of a used-car salesman's murder was stalled when police discovered that the man was hated by so many people (Edmonton, Alberta).

 

►An albanian minister was caught driving a stolen car while crossing the greek border to sign a deal on 'Crime fighting'.

I like the lightening strikes. See what can happen ladies when you chain up the puppies? =)

Moral of the story for the Tanzania prison escape: do not escape unless you have anti-lion pepper spray! LOL

 

The used car salesman story is very good, too.

 

The Japan cigarette, vaccine, etc. story is totally unethical, I wonder if it would be allowed to happen in the US or Canada or Europe.
