Another week of oddly interesting (OK...maybe" interesting" is a bit of a stretch) but odd seems right. As always, there are a few stories that remind us that thinking before doing might be beneficial....but probably less entertaining.
A tattooist has inked his name across his girlfriend's face less than 24 hours after meeting her.
The couple, who met online in a chat room, say they fell "head over heals" in love and quickly decided they should get married. While the couple have only been engaged since January 20th, Lesya has taken Tourmaniantz's last name and is learning how to become a tattoo artist with the tutorship of her fiance.
|The happy couple|
A friend of the couple says that Lesya's future plans are getting married, getting her entire body inked and having children. He went on to say, "I know that there are people who are terrified that Leysa has made a rash decision that she will regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart..."
Good thing the happy couple didn't decide to tattoo their last name across her face.
How Is It Possible to Get a Speeding Ticket Without a Car?
One of South Africa's top skateboarders is facing arrest after posting a video on You Tube of him skating down a Cape Town street at a professed 110 km (68 MPH) according to city officials.
Skater Decio Lourenco, is seen in the video careening down Kloof Nek, one of Cape Towns steepest streets. JP Smith, a Cape Town official in charge of safety and security for the city, wants Decio arrested. He says it's not about the speed. It's about being reckless and dangerous.
The close-knit community of skateboarders are calling for "mass action" on the National Skate Collective Facebook page. The page carries the tag line "Skate or Die". Perhaps that should read "Skate and Possibly Die"...
|Crabby Pants was so impressed with the skateboard video she has decided to go undercover as a skater chick.|
A driver in Lucerne, Switzerland says she accidentally hit the throttle after her foot slipped while parking her car. Marianne Meier's car plunged through the wall of a school at a high rate of speed. After going through a classroom her car came to a rest on a staircase in the Unterlochi School.
|I don't see any signs that say parking is prohibited|
The driver had minor injuries and was treated for shock. There was no mention of charges being filed.
Is that a Smart Car? The same can not be said of the driver.
Police in Alexandria, Virginia have charged a 10 year old for brandishing a weapon (really there is a "brandishing" charge?) for bringing a toy gun onto a school bus.
Alexandria police said the boy was riding a school bus on Monday from Douglas MacArthur Elementary when he showed a fellow student his toy gun. The gun, in question, doesn't have the capacity to fire and had an orange tip.
The report indicated that a girl on the bus informed the school and police found the toy in the boy's backpack. The boy has been charged with a misdemeanor.
In a statement by the police they said the boy never indicated that the gun was a fake.
Note to parents, Concealed toy guns seem to be a problem. Perhaps some toy gun control is in order. The really odd component to this is that a 10 year old with a toy gun could scare the crud out of people in today's world.
