Weird News

Post by Tall Tyrion on Sat Sep 17, 2011 8:30 pm

I come across these things all the time. Sometimes I post them here, sometimes not, but in the interest of not clogging up the forum with so many threads, I thought maybe having one thread to post weird news stories would be a good idea. If anyone else wishes to use this thread to post their own findings, please feel free.

This one sounds too ironic to be real, but it is. A guy was stabbed to death in Lethbridge, Alta., Canada. The first homicide in two years for the tiny town. His name? Brent Stabbed Last. No kidding.

A woman in Texas was doing the hula-hoop when a basketball fell out of nowhere and got stuck between her belly and the hoop. The man who threw the basketball, one Francis Hurla, had expected the ball to go right through the hoop. He hadn't expected it to get caught and pinch an artery in the woman's abdomen and kill her, police said. Mr. Hurla's sister-in-law, however, who had been throwing the ball around with Hurla, admitted that a little smile came over her brother-in-law's face when the basketball was pushed through the hoop by paramedics.

Move over, grilled cheese Virgin Mary. Step aside, bathroom door Jesus.

When Canadian researchers recently conducted an ultrasound to examine a growth on a patient's testicles, they expected to look at the mass, but didn't expect the mass to be staring back.

"It was almost like art coming out of this patient's testicles," said Dr. Naji Touma, an assistant professor of urology at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont. "It was an amusing finding."

Despite the image, however, Touma doesn't suspect any divine presence.

I do, too... if there is interest, I'll update it more. Smile

Like with this story... I hear they make excellent emergency flotation devices...

BANGKOK (AFP) - Thailand scrambled on Wednesday to airlift condoms
and other emergency health supplies to victims of its worst floods in
decades to prevent a feared surge in unplanned pregnancies.
Five helicopters began transporting medicine
and other provisions from the Public Health Ministry in Bangkok to
seven locations in the central province of Lop Buri, which has been
severely inundated.

'Local volunteers told us that villagers have nothing
to do during the floods, so to prevent a baby boom we added condoms
too,' an official at the Emergency Medical Institute of Thailand told
AFP.

The unusually severe monsoon floods have
killed 237 people and affected three-quarters of the country, including
the northern city of Chiang Mai and the ancient capital of Ayutthaya,
both popular tourist destinations.

This guy is a story prompt waiting to happen:

Russian police detain man after finding remains of 20 female corpses in flat

Russian police have detained a man after finding the remains of at least
twenty female corpses in his flat that he had dug up from cemeteries in the
dead of night as a hobby.

This thread isn't so much "weird news" as it is "nightmare fuel". Crumbs.

Nice.

And to think, John and Nick don't believe that I can take a bobcat.

If you had enough tape and a big enough tube, I'm sure you could.
