Drinkers visited their 14,000th pub

A dedicated team of pub goers have drunk themselves into the record books by carrying out the longest ever pub crawl.
The four men have just visited their 14,000th pub across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
They have spent 24 years traveling to every corner of the country and have downed and estimated 84,000 pints of real ale, working out at 21,000 pints each.
The foursome - Peter Hill, 52, John Drew, 45, Karl Bradley, 45, and Joe Hill, 77, began their mission in 1984. Because three of them work, their pub going is confined to Sundays and holidays.
Yet despite their travels, the cheapest pint they have found is only a mile down the road from where they live and costs 89p.

Looks like they had too much drinking time on their hands.

Ferrari in Pole Position

It'll take more than a quick spraypaint job to fix this.
If the owner of this $250,000 Ferrari 360 Modena is at the loss of his pride and joy, at least the driver and his passenger both in their 30's walked out of the wreckage with only minor injuries.
Witnesses in Adelaide, Australia, said the driver had 'turned the streets into a racetrack' before the vehicle spinned out of control and ploughed into a utility pole.

Traffic agency bans reverse oral sex

Officials with Sweden’s Road Administration have denied a driver’s request for a licence place with what at first glance appears to be a completely innocent combination of characters.
Recently, the agency received a request from an individual who wanted a licence plate reading X32IARO.Despite no obviously offensive reference in the desired combination, Vägverket nonetheless rejected the application."It looks like something completely different when seen through a rear-view mirror, and on the road, many end up reading things through the rear-view mirror."When read in reverse, as it would be seen through a rear-view mirror, X32IARO suddenly appears as ORALSEX.

Diarrhea 'no excuse' for speeding
A woman from southern Sweden has lost her bid to have a speeding fine overturned on the grounds that she was suffering from diarrhea at the time of the offence.
The 49-year-old woman from Trelleborg explained to the local district court that she was experiencing stomach problems when she was pulled over for driving 86 kilometres per hour in a 70 km/h zone. But the court ruled that a case of the runs did not equate to a need for speed. A situation can only be classed as an emergency if somebody's life is in danger or if a driver hits the gas in an attempt to prevent a serious crime. As the woman's desire to get home to her toilet did not fit into either category, the court ordered her to pay the speeding fine.
Man Jailed After Girlfriend Ate From His Plate
A Texas man was jailed last week after refusing to pay for a second buffet meal after his girlfriend "ate a couple bites from his plate."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday that Dan Linscomb, 40, of Texas City, Texas, was arrested Oct. 21 after refusing to pay for the second $7 meal at an Iron Skillet restaurant in northwest Atlanta.
According to a police report, Linscomb said "there were no signs in the restaurant that said someone could not have some food off your plate."
Linscomb was jailed on a charge of theft of services, but was released two days later after he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Hot Dads = Hot Daughters, Not-So-Hot Sons
Beautiful women like Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie can thank their fathers for their good looks, according to a study from the University of St. Andrews in England.

Multi-millionaire wins £600,000 a year for life on lottery
A multi-millionaire banker has won $1 million (£600,000) a year for life on a lottery scratchcard game.
Keenan Altunis, 33, has just left for a Caribbean holiday with his family, which was already booked before his win. He lives in a £750,000 apartment in Clerkenwell, London, with his wife and one-year-old daughter.
Mr Altunis was born in Turkey but his parents moved to America when he was five. He was brought up in the United States before moving to London for a career in finance. The executive at the European banking firm Unicredit asked his mother to buy three tickets for him on a trip to New York last month.
He said: "It turned out to be the best return on any investment I've ever made."
Because he lives in Britain, he will not pay federal taxes on his winnings. After New York taxes he will get £569,742 a year for the rest of his life.
He said: "Is it going to materially change my life? No, I've been a very blessed and fortunate person."

Man drives off in car being towed by repo worker
Delaware State police say they are looking for a Laurel man who drove his car off a tow truck around 12:30 a.m. Saturday as a repossession worker tried to tow it away. Police said a 37-year-old man came out of his home as a worker from Complete Auto Recovery was putting his car on a tow truck.
Police spokesman Sgt. Joshua Bushweller said the man interfered when the worker attached a chain to the car and put it on the truck's lift.
Bushweller said the man then got into the car, put it in reverse - despite warnings that he could tear off the bumper - and drove off.
Police said an arrest warrant has been issued charging the man with one misdemeanor count of reckless endangering.

Police begin their investigation after the man called the department several times to report missing medication, household items and a television.
But officers soon discovered he gave two women the prescription drug OxyContin in exchange for sex.

Police say man stole enhancement cream
Nabbing shoplifters can be an unsavory business,
Last week, Denton police arrested a man who they say pocketed a tube of male enhancement cream from a store
Maybe that part's understandable, considering some men might be embarrassed to make such a purchase. But his indiscretions didn't stop there, police say.
A loss-prevention officer who spotted the theft Wednesday followed the man to the restroom, where he walked into a stall and apparently applied the product.
Then the officer watched as the suspect walked to the store's toy section and exposed himself twice in the Barbie Doll aisle, police say.
The officer called police about 9 p.m. when the man returned to the restroom to use the cream again.
Man accused of threatening neighbor with centipedes
A Malaysian man has been accused of trying to hurt his neighbor with a dangerous weapon — centipedes.
Prosecutor Mazri Mohamed said Wednesday that R. Prabakaran has been charged with attempting to cause harm with a dangerous weapon after allegedly unleashing four centipedes and bugs in his neighbor's bed last week following an argument.
Prabakaran, 21, allegedly climbed on to the roof to enter his neighbor's house where he committed the offense, Mazri said.
Prabakaran pleaded not guilty Tuesday in a court in the southern city of Johor Baru and has been released on bail, Mazri said.
It was not clear what species the centipedes were. Some species are poisonous.
If found guilty, Prabakaran faces up to three years prison and a caning.
Disgruntled worker 'froze customer's bank account in revenge prank'
A bank customer who criticized an "unhelpful" worker at an Indian call center has alleged the clerk played a revenge prank on him by freezing his account and changing his identity to that of a Ugandan divorcee.
George Bates, 23, said he found the operator at Abbey's call center to be "rude and arrogant" and gave him a low rating in a post-call customer satisfaction survey.
However, when the self-employed carpenter later rang the bank he was unable to access his account for "security reasons".
Mr Bates alleged that the operator had "obviously seen that I have given him bad feedback and has decided to change all my details in revenge."
He added: "When I heard my details had been changed to Ugandan I was terrified that my account had been emptied by somebody else and I would never get my money back."
Mr Bates said the episode began when he contacted Abbey's telephone banking service on September 23 to extend his overdraft to cover direct debits.
The operator, who spoke with an Asian accent, extended the overdraft from £1,500 to £1,700. But when Mr Bates later asked to extend the overdraft further, the operator refused as the limit could not be changed twice in one day.

Young Girl Turns in $1000 Found in Richard Simmons Videotape

But Mikela Mercier, 11, decided to pass up the chance to buy the tape for a few coins after she found a surprise inside: $1,000 in $100 bills.
Mikela says that when she discovered the money while browsing through the used tapes, she immediately looked for her mom who was inside the dressing room and told her they needed to turn it in.
Store manager Jimmy Thennes put out a news release on the discovery, praising Mikela for her honesty.
Her mother, Jodi Mercier, says she is very proud of her daughter who she says knew it belonged to the Salvation Army so the agency can help more people in need.

Clean up underneath ride nets bizarre items
The 28-year-old Corkscrew, which cost £1.25m, was Europe's first double-looped rollercoaster.
The leg was just one of many bizarre items found near The Corkscrew, which is to be dismantled after carrying 43.5 million people since it opened in 1980.
Staff clearing the site also found underwear, a diamond wedding ring, 53 non-matching shoes and 604 watches.
Other lost property items included 800 pieces of jewelry, 237 mobile phones, thousands of caps and a prosthetic ear.
The ride, which reaches speeds of up to 44mph (70km/h), opened on 4 April 1980.
'Missing leg'
Riders are turned upside down twice within three seconds - which probably explains the large amount of lost items found below.
The Staffordshire amusement park said it was used to dealing with more than 5,000 items of lost property, such as car keys, money and mobile phones.

Police kills an innocent man
Calif. man killed by police in mistaken identity
A newlywed killed by police after he stepped outside his home to confront suspected burglars was shot in a case of mistaken identity, police said.
Julian Alexander died after being shot twice in the chest by a police officer who was chasing four burglary suspects early Tuesday morning.
Police Chief John Welter said the officer ran into Alexander, mistook him for one of the four juvenile suspects and shot him.
"He was a good kid, trying to protect his house," said Alexander's mother-in-law Michelle Mooney. "The police, instead of asking questions, they just shot first. Somebody has to be held responsible for this."
Man Says Drinking Hard Cider Turned His Skin Orange
A 47-year-old man who drank more than a gallon of hard cider every day for five years was forced to seek medical attention when his skin turned orange.
Michael Stenning, a divorced father of two, said he began drinking heavily when he lost his job five years ago and only decided to quit his habit when doctors told him he might die.
"It was a miracle," Dr. Sumita Verma, who researches alcoholic hepatitis. "I have never seen someone as sick as him leave the hospital alive."
Stenning’s skin turned orange, or jaundice, as a result of increased bile pigments in the blood, which is symptomatic of liver diseases such as hepatitis.
Stenning spent three weeks at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, England, where the medical staff helped him overcome his addiction.

Drunk woman pees her pants twice in police station
Officers responding to an accident in a field across from 8358 Hoke Road observed a female in the driver's seat of a vehicle stuck in mud.
The subject got out and started crying. An officer saw the vehicle was in reverse gear, its tires spinning. The subject smelled of alcohol and tripped and fell while being escorted to a cruiser.
She agreed to a field sobriety test but said she desperately needed to urinate. She then tried to walk to the side of the road and pull down her pants.
The subject was placed in the cruiser and taken to a police department interview room and asked if she needed the bathroom. She became agitated and said she would relieve herself in the interview room.
She then urinated in her pants and on the chair where she sat, then urinated again before being escorted to the bathroom. She refused sobriety tests, and was arrested for operating a vehicle intoxicated.

It’s true, Chinese restaurant uses road kill
Is road kill on the menu at a popular Hamburg, NY restaurant? A disturbing discovery at the China King Restaurant has forced health officials to lock the doors.
Lisa Williams was going to eat in the restaurant when she got some upsetting news. "Were you coming to eat here?" "Yeah, we were coming to eat." "Did you hear what happened?" "No." "Health inspectors closed it down because there was road kill out here, a deer." "Oh no."
People who came to China King for their Friday dinner found it hard to believe. A dead deer had been butchered inside the kitchen in the restaurant they've been coming to for years.
Patron, Sue Bender said, "Our daughter just called us because she knows this is our take out Chinese, and told us, you're not going to believe what was just on Channel Four."
A witness tells us he saw an Asian man dragging the deer inside.
"I watched him drag it across the parking lot and he dragged it through the front door of the China King Restaurant. I said this is just not right, so I called Hamburg Police and reported it. Sure enough by the time they got there, they said that he had the deer almost all butchered inside the restaurant."

There’s an old Marine Corps tale about a lieutenant who inspected his Marines in the field, and afterward told the ‘Gunny’ that the men smelled bad. The lieutenant’s suggested solution was for the men to change their underwear.
The Gunny responded, ‘Yes sir, I’ll see to it immediately!’
The Gunny went straight to the squad tent and announced, ‘The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowsky, and Brown, you change with Schultz. Now get to it!’
THE MORAL: A candidate may promise ‘change’ in Washington , but don’t count on things smelling any better.

A drink which aims to deliver the same fix as cigarettes is being launched in Britain to help smokers beat the cigarette ban in pubs. The drink, called Liquid Smoking, has already proved a hit in the Netherlands where it has been on sale for a year.
The manufacturers say it does not contain the drug nicotine, but rather a mix of roots from South African plants which is said to give "a slight energizing effect, followed by a euphoric sense of calming and relaxation." People might use this instead of a cigarette or tobacco to help the cravings. He added: "It will take the edge off of a need for nicotine for between one to four hours.

Hotel accused of serving "SHIT"
A Sydney pub has been accused of serving ice cream contaminated with human excrement to a family of five.
The Whyte family claim they were served a large bowl of ice cream covering what looked like "compacted chocolate".
They claim that when Jessia Whyte tasted the dessert she immediately became "violently ill".
"The minute I put the spoon to my lips the stench went through my nostrils. I retched and spat it into the napkin," Mrs Whyte told the Australian Sunday Telegraph.
"My friend thought I was over-reacting, but when she smelt it, she started screaming 'Oh my god, they've served us s***'."
The Coogee Bay Hotel on the city's southern beaches has strongly denied the accusation.
General manager Tony Williams offered the family AUS$5,000 (£2,000) without admitting liability, but the offer was rejected. The family are now said to be suing the pub for AUS$1,000,000 (£400,000).

Driver follows sat-nav into lake
A Polish driver steered his mini bus straight into a lake - after his sat-nav told him to.
Police got a frantic call from the bus driver as he called from the Mercedes van screaming that he and his two passengers were drowning. He managed to say that he had driven into a lake and he was sinking fast.
"He said he had two passengers but he couldn't open the doors - and then he got cut off."
Police, fire and ambulance services rushed to the lake and found the driver and his passengers perched on the top of the mini-bus's roof.
"There used to be a road there until last year until the local water company flooded the valley to build a new reservoir lake," said one police source.
"It seems that the GPS hadn't been updated and was still showing a usable road running through where the lake now is. It's a huge lake and it's hard to imagine how you could ignore or not see it, but he certainly managed it.
"The driver had such faith in his sat-nav that he didn't even notice all the traffic signs saying the road had been closed," they added.

Oops! Prison officials release wrong person
Prison chiefs mixed up a father and son with the same name and freed the wrong man.
Both Terence Cleggs were at Durham prison but the son was released instead of his dad, the Ministry of Justice said.?
A Prison Service Spokesperson said: "Due to an administrative error a prisoner was released in error from HMP Durham on Thursday 23 October. This is now a matter for the police."A police source added: "Both the Cleggs were in Durham and both are prolific offenders." They’re both out of prison now, but we’re trying to locate the younger one who shouldn’t have been released.

Firefighter uses automotive saw for delicate operation
A Newburgh firefighter became an surgeon Friday, called upon to use a pneumatic saw to cut a piece of steel pipe off a 73-year-old man's penis.
Firefighters were dispatched to the Newburgh campus of St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital shortly after 9 p.m. for a public service call, Assistant Chief Scott Mandoske said. Hospital personnel asked them for tools to cut off a ring. The fire department has a ring cutter used to clip wedding bands from swollen fingers, but firefighters learned that wouldn't be enough. The pipe was an inch long, an inch in diameter and made of quarter-inch-thick steel.
Authorities said the pipe was apparently an erotic aid, but did not elaborate.
Mandoske said firefighters chose a "wizzer saw" for the job. The wizzer saw is an automotive tool, powered with air bottles and adopted by emergency responders who frequently deal with car crashes. Firefighters use it more commonly to saw off mufflers. "Just don't cut it off," the senior citizen reportedly said.

"He came out on a stretcher, with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off," said witness Benoit Gigou. The train was traveling from La Rochelle to Bordeaux on Sunday. The service was delayed for two hours after the 26-year-old victim, hunting for his lost telephone, fell prey to the powerful suction system which drains the toilet on board, the rail network's regional office said.

The shop often asks for donations of plastic bags and when a worker went through them, she discovered the money.
The guy comes into the thrift shop often to buy merchandise but has always remained anonymous.
The money isn't going to help the thrift shop, though. Cops took it and tagged it as evidence.
