Termites Eat Millions Of Rupees At Bank

An army of termites munched through 10 million rupees ($222,000) in currency notes stored in a steel chest at a bank, police in northern India said Friday.

The bank manager discovered the damage when he opened the reinforced room in an old bank building on Wednesday, police officer Navneet Rana told The Associated Press.

"It's a matter of investigation how termites attacked bundles of currency notes stacked in a steel chest," he said. The money was put in the chest in January.

The termites had damaged bank furniture and documents in the past.

The police have registered a case of negligence against bank officials in Barabanki, a town 20 miles southwest of Lucknow, the Uttar Pradesh state capital. In India, police register a case before opening an investigation.


The 14 Year Old McDonalds Hamburger

A Utah man said a McDonald's burger he bought to use as a demonstration item in 1999 has shown few signs of aging in 14 years.
David Whipple of St. George said he bought the hamburger -- topped with a pickle, mustard and ketchup -- July 7, 1999, at a McDonald's in Logan and let it age for a month for a lesson on enzymatic action he gave to a group of weight loss advocates, KSL-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Wednesday.
"At the little meeting, I showed the hamburger and the pickle, which was just starting to disintegrate," Whipple writes. "There was no decomposition to the meat or bun, nor any mold, fungus or smell. It had no bad odor at all."

Don't Cut Off Your Limbs For Insurance Money

Two Spanish men were apparently so desperate for cash they decided to make a false £2.5 million insurance claim by cutting off their hands.

Unfortunately for the alleged fraudsters they were found to have done too good of a job of amputating their limbs.

The medics said one of the men, who were claiming to have been maimed in a car accident, had a cut that was too clean.
The hapless man, who has not been named, thought he’d be able to fool 11 insurance companies out of £2m by chopping his hand off with an electric saw.

‘The cut was too clean between the bone for a car crash, which is never so clean,’ said accident investigator José Luís Nieto.

‘This man might have got someone to use a saw to cut off his hand. A surgeon would never have done it.’

The second insurance claimant went a step further by cutting off his lower arm and claiming £500,000 for an ‘electric saw accident.’

His claim was also rejected after an investigation.

Naked Woman Crawls Through Doggie Door

More doggie door madness at SDIN!  Muahaha!!

A 25-year-old woman was arrested after, police say, she undressed and entered a stranger’s home through a doggy door.

According to a Weatherford police report, officers were called to a Texas home Tuesday in reference to an intruder.

A woman living at the home told police that her husband heard a noise, got up and found the doggy door damaged.

Because they don’t have a dog, the couple assumed an animal had gotten in the house, according to the probable cause affidavit. However, they then observed an unknown woman in the bathroom.
The responding officer reportedly found a woman, identified by police as Sara Elizabeth Soto, sitting in the bathtub naked.

Officers located her black dress on the back porch and allowed her to put it on.

Soto, listed on her arrest record as 4 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 110 pounds, said she had done nothing wrong and was there to use the phone, according to the arresting officer.


The Caturday Report! Frankenstein Experiment On Cat

This is a sad Caturday Report:

Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Milwaukie-area woman at her home Monday after finding a dead cat strapped with jumper cables to a makeshift operating table, surrounded by a wet sponge, scissors, a 12-inch knife, a plastic razor and a cigarette butt.

Investigators said the cat's body had been tampered with and partially shaved. A necropsy determined the cat died of asphyxiation.

Ashley Fawn Guldager, 21, had been living at the home in the 1900 block of Southeast Sunnyslope Road in Oak Grove.

The dead animal was a neighbor's 9-year-old cat, Mama Kitty, who went missing three days earlier, deputies said. Deputies said Guldager and the cat owners know each other.

 A roommate who discovered the cat and called police also expressed concern about chemicals Guldager was mixing inside the house. Clackamas Fire District #1 responded to make sure the house was safe to enter.

Eathing Boogers Is Good For You! Eat Boogers Everybody!!

Scott Napper, a biochemistry professor at the Saskatoon school, posed the unsavory hypothesis to his students, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

"By consuming those pathogens caught within the mucus, could that be a way to teach your immune system about what it's surrounded with?" Napper asked.

"I've got two beautiful daughters and they spend an amazing amount of time with their fingers up their nose," he said. "And without fail, it goes right into their mouth afterwards. Could they just be fulfilling what we're truly meant to do?"

Napper said he has an experiment designed to test the hypothesis.

"All you would need is a group of volunteers. You would put some sort of molecule in all their noses, and for half of the group they would go about their normal business and for the other half of the group, they would pick their nose and eat it," he said. "Then you could look for immune responses against that molecule and if they're higher in the booger-eaters, then that would validate the idea."

Murder/Suicide - Over Phish Tickets!

Two men in Washington, Pa., are dead after an apparent murder-suicide that authorities suspect was sparked by an argument over Phish concert tickets.

Nate Roman, 30, was shot multiple times early Thursday morning after a fight with longtime friend Michael Marchines, 31, at a local bar. He later died at a local hospital.

Investigators haven't released details on the fight, but family members told KDKA-TV that the argument may have been over concert tickets for the rock band Phish, which Roman had recently purchased for $3,000.

Roman's death was ruled a homicide and, after an extensive search, police found Marchines dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, WTAE-TV reported.

Walmart Madness #88! Male Employee Prostitute Sells Sex In The Bathroom

I wonder if his prices lived up to their slogan?

"Foster M. Bills, 22, of Stony Creek, allegedly engaged in sex acts with other men for money in the bathroom of the store while working overnight shifts, officials said.

Police said Bills solicited meetings with would-be clients through the Craigslist online marketplace website, and arranged to meet them during his breaks.

State Police said store officials became suspicious of his activity and notified State Police, and an undercover officer arranged for a meeting with him at the store and arrested Bills when he agreed to perform a sex act for money, officials said. Bills was charged with prostitution, a misdemeanor, and was released pending prosecution April 29 in Queensbury Town Court.

Kayla Whaling, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, said Bills was suspended pending an investigation by the company. She said Wal-Mart has been cooperating with State Police and providing information throughout the investigation.

Man Cooks And Eats His Own Finger

The above guy (David Playpenz) got in a motorcycle accident and was hospitalized with injuries to his hand.  When his finger ended up turning black and infected the doctors informed him that it would have to be amputated.  He did not want to part with the departed digit after the amputation and asked to take it home,  so he could eat it:

"He boiled the finger in salt water, adding: “Because I wanted to keep the bones, I decided not to fry or roast the finger, as that would damage them.

“I didn’t have sauce or drink wine with it as I wanted to know what the real taste was.”

He has been keeping the bones in a box since and insisted most of his friends did not mind his bizarre experience."

Man Finds His Wife In 11 Online Porn Films

An Egyptian man who ventured online to watch his first adult film, was shocked to see that the leading lady was his own wife.

The man, who is identified only as Ramadan, began watching the film in an internet cafe and instantly collapsed in disbelief after spotting his wife on the screen.

Once he had come round from his initial surprise he saw that she was in 11 different films and rushed home to confront his unfaithful wife.

At first she reacted with anger and denied the allegations while swearing profusely at him, although she later admitted to starring in the film after Ramadan showed her the videos.

She confessed that the man in the films was her pre-marriage boyfriend, before adding that she had never loved her husband, despite being with him for 16 years and having four children together.

After being found out by her husband, he claimed 'she then confessed to be still in love with her boyfriend, saying he is as young as her and that I am an old man'.


Scaredy Cat Burglar Scared By Cat

Marius Ionescu, 31, mistook the family cat for another burglar in the house in Benesti, Romania, causing him to head for cover and wait for the authorities to come and rescue him.

 When the police turned up they did not discover anyone else in the house except for the burglar himself and promptly arrested him.

‘The noise he heard was probably just the family cat,’ said police spokesperson Mihaela Straub.
‘He already has a criminal record for similar break-ins, and given his nervous disposition, he probably should look for another job.

‘He’s likely to have a lot of time inside jail to consider things.’

We’re not sure what other occupations Mr Ionescu could take up but it’s probably a good idea if he avoids anything to do with cats.


Man Stuck In Elevator 4 Days Without Water Or Food

Thomas Fleetwood got stuck in a tiny one man lift when it broke down in his vacant Austrian resort hotel.   He broke out a glass panel in the lifts door to get fresh air and tried to escape out of the top but couldn't.  Having left his cell phone behind at his office the only choice he had was to wait and hope for rescue:

 "The lift has never broken down before, I just hadn't expected anything to happen," Fleetwood told Austrian Times.

Eventually a friend delivering bread alerted rescue services after noticing post piled up outside the hotel.

Fleetwood was treated in a local hospital. He is now "in good health, telling officers that a survival course with the Swedish military had set him in good stead," police said.

"It was foolish to have gone in the lift in an empty hotel without a mobile telephone, but I am proud of myself that I didn't panic and used my military training to get through. I would talk to myself and was making my plans for the future while I was stuck there," said Fleetwood."

No Square To Spare!

A Brooklyn brother and sister who share an apartment despite restraining orders against each other battle it out over toilet paper:

"Howard Meltzer, 67, and Bernice Meltzer, 72, who constantly squabble and call cops on each other, took their rivalry to comical proportions Tuesday night when the sister allegedly dashed to her bedroom with the last roll of Charmin and locked herself in.

 Howard — who walks with a cane and sometimes uses a motorized scooter — banged furiously on her door and didn’t stop until almost midnight, a law-enforcement source said.

“Five hours he was knocking on that door,” a law-enforcement source said. “It sounds like he absolutely had to go bad.”

Howard said he had gone into the bathroom and found barely a square of toilet paper.

“The roll was full when I went there in the morning,” he told The Post as he left Brooklyn Criminal Court yesterday after being released without bail. “She unloaded a whole roll and left just a little, and when I looked up to the reserve, it wasn’t there.”

Howard soon found Bernice had taken the last roll into her room. He banged on the door.
“I said I want the toilet paper back by 1 [a.m.] or I’m calling the police,” Howard recalled.
At one point, he called a grocery store asking it to deliver two packs of Charmin to the Midwood home.

“I ordered it and would have paid anything. I needed it,” he said.

Howard said his sister put the TP back at around midnight.

Tiger Invades Woman's Rest-room, Must Have Been Like An Instant Laxative

A central Kansas woman likely won't remember her first circus for the clowns or performances — it'll be the tiger in the bathroom.

The big cat had escaped briefly after its turn in the ring Saturday at the Isis Shrine Circus in Salina. Staff members blocked off the concourses at the Bicentennial Center as the tiger wandered into the bathroom, where one of the doors was blockaded.

About that time, Salina resident Jenna Krehbiel decided she needed to use the restroom. When she walked in the door that hadn't been blocked off, she found a tiger standing about 2 feet away, The Salina Journal reported ( ).

"You don't expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you," Krehbiel said.

Chris Bird, manager at the Bicentennial Center, said the bathroom was only 25 feet long.
"Once she saw the tiger, I'm sure she knew to go the other way," Bird said. "Overall, it was a scary, surreal moment. I am glad no one was hurt or injured."

Man Slashed Up To 1,000 Tires To Meet Women

The slasher would use a sharp screwdriver or other sharp object to slash a car tire of a woman that he fancied.  When the victims returned to their vehicles he would come and offer help,  striking up a conversation,  and sometimes get lucky with obtaining their phone numbers and going on a date.

"One woman who fell victim to Harada’s scheme told a female friend of hers, “I recently got a flat and a man offered to change it for me.” Upon hearing the story the friend exclaimed, “The same thing happened to me!” Suspecting a scam, the women reported the matter to police who launched an investigation. Harada appeared in court wearing a grey shirt and slacks. At times it appeared he would break down in tears. When questioning the defendant about further similar offenses, his lawyer said, “There were about 1,000, weren’t there?”

Some lawyer!


For Whom The Bell Tolls

A man has had a lucky escape after a two-tonne bell fell on top of him and trapped him at a temple.
Lin Wang was visiting the museum with a friend that decided he was going to frantically ring the bell while his mate was standing underneath it.

This led to the rope holding the construct snapping and the bell enveloping a bemused Lin.
‘This bell is very old and should have been treated with respect,’ said a temple spokesman.
‘Instead, it broke and the bell fell on top of the man like a trap. The bell is very heavy and he’s lucky he wasn’t crushed,’ he added.

The Caturday Report! Lil' Bub Works The Red Carpet

Lil Bub has 22 toes, no teeth, a deformed jaw, and millions of YouTube views.  Now the little guy has a film debuting called "Lil Bub And Friends."  that just premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival! :)

 "My world has been turned on its head by the extent to which people are obsessed with this phenomenon," said Juliette Eisner, the film's co-producer and co-writer with Andy Capper. "We started at the Cat Video Film Festival at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We expected 100 or 200 people to show up, but there were over 10,000."

 "The documentary offers a plausible non-commercial explanation for the cat-vid phenomenon," The Hollywood Reporter critic John DeFore writes. "While dog owners have daily walks and dedicated parks as a social outlet, cat lovers are isolated in their homes; if they want to prove how adorable their four-legged roommates are, they have to document it online."

Modeling agencies in Sweden have reportedly made a practice of scouting for new talent outside of the country's biggest clinic for treating eating disorders.

Walmart Madness #87! Meth Lab In Bathroom

Boaz Police say a maintenance worker cleaning the women’s restroom found pseudoephedrine pills and a plastic water bottle with residue in the bottom.

Managers contacted police, who recovered what Chief Terry Davis called a one-pot ‘shake and bake’ type lab.

Police said it takes about 15 to 30 minutes to cook low-quality methamphetamine using this method, and they do not know if the culprit finished the product.

Davis said officers are reviewing surveillance video to see if they can determine who took the items into the [woman's] restroom.

Oddly enough, the pills did not come from Walmart, but another pharmacy.

Daycare Worker Bites Little Boy

"Robin Mullins, 56, was arrested Thursday after biting a five-year-old child at Andrew’s Friends Pre-School & Daycare in southwest Ohio.

Police reports say the boy, whose identity was kept anonymous, was brought to Mullins’ office because he bit another child in the school.

Instead of disciplining the boy with a timeout or loss of privileges, Mullins, the administrative assistant at Andrew’s Friends Preschool and Daycare, decided it would be best to teach the child by doling out a penalty equal to the crime — a bite.

She left a mark on the boy and caused an injury, police said."

When officers went into the flat there was a ‘strong and pungent smell’ and a frying pan next to the hob with a hamster in it.

The Horror! Gigantic 22 Foot Wasp Nest Found In France

POLICE in San Sebastián de la Gomera have cordoned off an abandoned house after finding a seven-metre-long wasp nest.

Officers were called out by worried neighbours of the empty home in the island's capital and say the nest was in an indoor hallway and contained literally millions of wasps.

Experts have examined the nest, which is said to be 21'9” in length, and say the common type of wasp found in gardens would never normally build a nest of this size. 

They believe it must be an invasive species of wasp which had migrated from Africa.

The man was on a fishing trip at Lake Shestakov in Belarus with two friends when they spotted the animal on the side of the road.
He stopped so that he could take a picture but as he approached the beaver it pounced on him, biting him in the thigh.

His friends attempted to stem the flow of blood from the wound but the animal’s bite had severed a main artery and the man, who came from Brest, bled to death.

Beaver attacks are rare and according to experts those animals that do go for humans are usually rabid.


Here is video of the attack:

France Gets New Camel After Other One Is Eaten

Malian authorities will give French President Francois Hollande another camel after the one they gave him in thanks for helping repel Islamist rebels was killed and eaten by the family he left it with in Timbuktu, an official in Mali said.

A local government official in northern Mali said on Tuesday a replacement would be sent to France.

"As soon as we heard of this, we quickly replaced it with a bigger and better-looking camel," said the official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

"The new camel will be sent to Paris. We are ashamed of what happened to the camel. It was a present that did not deserve this fate."
