Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Would-be gangster shoots his own manhood
A would-be gangster shot himself in the crotch when his gun went off half cocked in his pocket.
Lukas Neuhardt, 27, had forgotten to put the safety catch on when he stuffed the gun into his trouser pocket to impress pals in Saarbruecken, Germany.
He told paramedics that a masked mugger had blasted him in the crutch in a bungled robbery.
But police found a hole in his statement when they saw that the gunshot had miraculously left his trousers intact.
"Instead there was a charred hole in his pocket so either it was the shot of the century or he did it himself," said a police source.
Now - after surgeons stitched his manhood back together - he's facing up to three years in jail for breaching Germany's tough new anti gun laws.
Gangsters forced boy to replace 'trademark' tattoo
Two members of a criminal gang were indicted on criminal charges on Wednesday after forcing an 18-year-old boy to replace a tattoo they claimed had infringed their "trademark".
The boy was approached by two members of the F@cked For Life gang after they learned that the 18-year-old had a tattoo on his arm bearing the legend Förstörd För Livet (Ruined For Life). The boy said he got the tattoo because it reminded him of a rock band and he thought it was "a cool thing to do".
But two F@cked For Life members, 36 and 33, saw matters differently and contacted the boy to inform him that he had breached the gang's trademark. The boy was told he had two choices: either cover over his tattoo with a new design or get it removed altogether. Last winter he was taken to a tattoo artist in Tumba, the south Stockholm suburb where the gang has its base. There the offending words were covered over with a tattoo representing a long knife.
When the new tattoo was completed the boy was informed by the gang members that he owed them "compensation" for stealing their trademark. A couple of weeks later the boy's parents paid the men 50,000 kronor ($6,500).
The two gang members are to stand trial at Södertörn District Court on charges of aggravated harassment, assault and aggravated extortion. The tattoo artist has also been charged with assault for inking the boy without his consent.
Man finds $250,000 in street
A man found a quarter of a million dollars stuffed into carrier bags in the street - and handed it in.
David Jenks found the money - the equivalent of more than £150,000 - after popping out of his antiques shop one evening in Syracuse, New York.
"I was walking out to my car for a clean shirt when I saw bags of trash on the side of the road," he said.
When Mr Jenks went to move the bags, he realized they were filled with banknotes.
The bags are believed to have come from a Brinks armored security vehicle.
Brinks managers are trying to determine how the money ended up on the side of the road, police said.
Mr Jenks added: "It's the most amount of money I've ever seen in my life. I'm so glad I was here tonight. I was happy to return the money."

Burglar bites through steel bars

Police who solved a slew of mystery burglaries were shocked to find the culprit was biting his way through steel window bars.
Detectives in Nanjimen region, Chongqing, were puzzled by continuous reports of break-ins through caged windows.
"Through our investigations, we found the grids had been cut but with deep tooth prints," a local police spokesman told the Chongqing Business Daily.
Eventually, their inquiries led them to interview a man who revealed he was sharing a hotel room with a man who could crack walnuts with his teeth.
Police brought in the man, Xiong, 23, for questioning and he confessed that he was behind the burglaries.
He revealed that he had turned to crime after failing to find a job and could not even remember how many houses he had broken into over the last two years.
Xiong told police he had grown up in a mountain town and had developed strong, sharp teeth by using them to open the walnuts which grew there in abundance.
He had found that he could chew open any steel bars up to 1cm in thickness, by prising open welding spots with his teeth.
"I only failed once in the past two years. Once I bit on a 2cm thick steel grid, and the first bite nearly dislocated my jaw," he said.
"I never take other tools with me when breaking in. That's why I never got stopped by patrolling officers at night."

Half-Assed Solutions to Problems


Saudi princess hides from a £15 million shopping bill

One of the most senior members of Saudi Arabia's royal family, Princess Maha al-Sudairi, is claiming diplomatic immunity in France after running up unpaid shopping bills of more than £15 million including £60,000 on designer lingerie.
She has ignored her furious debtors and locked herself in her £2,500-a-night suite at the George V Hotel in Paris.
When a royal aide was approached about settling the underwear bill he replied: "I'm afraid we can't go around settling bills for the Princess's undergarments."
Princess Maha, whose husband, Prince Nayef, is interior minister and second-in-line to the Saudi throne, is said to have spent millions on designer clothes, jewels and other luxury products in the French capital over the past year. Her weekly dry cleaning bill alone was said to be £30,000.
Every time the Princess and her entourage visited a shop a representative would offer staff an embossed document stating "Payment to Follow".


Man Tied Up and Gagged Kids to Watch Basketball

A Las Vegas man who police say was babysitting his girlfriend's 1 and 2-year-old children has been arrested after he tied up, bound and gagged them, and left them inside a garage.
For more than two hours, the two toddlers were bound and gagged in an apartment complex garage, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.
Twenty-year-old Jonathan Weaver remains behind bars, accused of tying up and gagging two kids he was supposed to be babysitting. He tells police he left the boys so he could go watch the second half of the NBA championship game at a local bar.

Robotic snake is newest spy

Israeli military scientists have reportedly designed a robotic snake which can spy on enemies and plant bombs. The robotic snake can even stand up vertically to peer over obstacles.
The remote-controlled reptile is able to sneak through cracks in buildings to gather information on enemy combatants.
Researchers studied the movements of snakes to ensure that the robotic equivalent mimics them correctly.
A soldier controls the snake from a remote laptop and can follow what it sees via video cameras.
Footage posted online shows the six-foot long snake in camouflage gear, winding its way through rocks and tree stumps.
The Israel Defence Forces plan to equip combat units with the models, which could also be used to find survivors trapped in collapsed buildings.
The snake is in the experimental stage and the cost of producing multiple versions is as yet unknown.
