“A woman who impaled herself on a picket fence when she fell while urinating from an unprotected veranda has sued her former fiance for substantial damages…” Yikes! Here’s the rest of the story.
Unless you have a gambling problem, you’ll usually play with what you are prepared to lose. No way were these gents prepared to lose what they did. As reported by The Arab Times:
The Ahmadi police have arrested 12 Asians [in Kuwait City] for gambling in an open area at an unidentified location, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. They have been referred to the concerned authorities to prepare their deportation.
Now that is some high stakes gambling.
“Of all the car dealers in all the towns in all the world, he walks into this one.” (If you don’t recognize this paraphrased quote, see #67.) As reported by Will Greenlee at tcpalm.com
A man accused of running around a car dealership with balloons after downing a bottle of booze and possibly chasing people with a machete was arrested, according to statements in a recently released arrest affidavit.
Yikes. You can read more, and see the gent’s mug shot, here.

Incident Date: November 15, 2014
Colorado Springs police received a 911 call shortly before 9 p.m. reporting that gunshots could be heard coming from inside a home on the 1200 block of Royale Drive. As officers arrived at the home described by the reporting party, they saw its front door open. At that time they heard numerous gunshots being fired from inside the home. Reacting immediately, officers moved inside the home, toward the sound of the gunshots. The officers contacted three people inside the residence. Further investigation into the incident revealed that the homeowner, and a friend, decided to alternate using a handgun to shoot glass bottles in the basement of the residence, while the third person watched. Both the homeowner and the friend were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident. 28 year-old Christian Clark and 23 year-old Codie Leslie were charged with Prohibited use of weapons and Reckless Endangerment.
A Lindenwold woman who was in court for driving with a suspended license allegedly left after being heard for multiple traffic offenses, hopped in her car and drove off, borough police said.
So obviously the judge reinstated her license? Well, not exactly.
A New Zealand doctor took a number of photographs of his … genitalia, with his cell phone. You might ask, “Why?” According to the judge, the reasons “still remain largely inexplicable.” Our doctor, whose name the court has not released, tried to send the photos to a female friend with the caption “before.” (I don’t think we’ll ever know what “after” would have been.) Well, the e-mail address was incorrect, so it bounced back. When the doctor tried to delete the photos, he caused them to be archived!
Another sexually explicit e-mail the doctor sent led to the discovery of the “self-portrait.” An Employment Court proceeding followed and, as they say in New Zealand, the doctor was sacked. He appealed. How do you think he fared?
He won! The appellate court held that the dismissal process was flawed and that the dismissal was unjustified.
Harrisburg District Judge Robert Jennings III squeezed financial kickbacks from constables for his election campaign, sat on citations filed against himself and associates and made inappropriate sexual comments to women, a state investigatory board said in charges filed Friday.
A conviction on the accusations lodged by the Judicial Conduct Board could cost Jennings the job he’s held since 2004.
