Amusing News Stories

Post by Piero on Sat 1 Mar 2014 - 16:55

I figured it might be nice to have a separate thread for the light, quirky kind of news stories rather than lumping them in with the more serious stuff in the world news thread.

Anyway, here's an amusing one for the auto lovers here.  A mechanic in California had a 1957 Chevy Bel Air stolen in the early eighties.  The police recently discovered it as it was about to be shipped out to Australia so he got it back: with extensive restoration work, a new engine, a custom interior and "show quality chrome."  Good

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

See, it does stop something.

Apparently the snake got away, so he had to find dinner elsewhere. No, seriously.

I'll let Junkee explain why.

In other news, looks like the Liberals may be in for a spill... I'm starting to think we should just shorten the government's term to two years and be done with it.

Yes, I see Abbott was forced from office today and replaced by Malcolm Turnbull as PM and Labor Party Leader (who himself was tossed as LPL by Abbott in 2009).

Five PMs in 8 years... You guys are going to give Italy and Israel a run at this rate. Incoming!

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.

Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.

Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.

Admittedly we've only just started it, but this would probably be the best thing I've seen all year...



...except the Today Show Interview somehow managed to be even better.

The car used in the attempt, by the way, was mine, stolen from my son's driveway.

Wow, that really sucks. I mean majorly sucks. I guess it's a good thing that the police recovered the car, but having it stolen in the first place still hurts. Hopefully they didn't damage it too much backing it into the store. Doubly hope the thieves get captured soon.

The car being thirteen years old and no longer having an undamaged panel on it, both mirrors broken off, rear window gone, steering column hammered to pieces... you get the idea. The insurance adjuster has yet to render his decision, but I'm not hopeful.

Spotted this on my news thread, for some reason, and immediately thought of Alfisti.
