When not to shave your bikini line
A Florida woman crashed her car because she was attempting to shave her bikini line en route to a meeting with her boyfriend, police said. Megan Barnes, 37, was performing the act of intimate self-grooming while still operating the gas and brake pedals and relying on a passenger to lean over and steer. “She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit,” said Trooper Gary Dunick. “A lot of bad wrecks are caused by dumb stuff like this.”
New road sign urges drivers to beware of drunks
Road signs have been erected in a Romanian town warning drivers to be alert to drunks in the street. The signs, depicting a person on all fours clutching a bottle, say, “Attention: Drunks.” Petru Antal, mayor of the bar-filled border town of Pecica, says he asked for the signs because so many drunken pedestrians had been run down in the street. “We have to target the drivers,” said Antal, “because by the time the pedestrians get into this state they are beyond caring.”
It's raining fish and fish: desert town deluged by showers of perch
A remote town in the northern Australian desert has been deluged by showers of living fish. Residents of Lajamanu, pop. 650, on the edge of the Tanami Desert, say that “hundreds and hundreds” of perch fell from the sky last Thursday evening, and again on Friday at roughly the same time. “Locals were picking them up from the footy oval and on the ground everywhere,” said witness Christine Balmer. “These fish were alive when they hit the ground.” Scientists were baffled, though one weatherman suggested that the fish may have been sucked up into the atmosphere by tornadoes over the ocean.
