    1) Police in Wichita, Kansas, arrested a 22-year-old man at an airport hotel
    after he tried to pass two (counterfeit) $16 bills.
    2) A man in Johannesberg, South Africa, shot his 49-year-old friend in the
    face, seriously wounding him, while the two practiced shooting beer cans off
    each other's head.
    3) A company trying to continue its five-year perfect safety record showed
    its workers a film aimed at encouraging the use of safety goggles on the
    job. According to Industrial Machinery News, the film's depiction of gory
    industrial accidents was so graphic that twenty-five workers suffered minor
    injuries in their rush to leave the screening room. Thirteen others fainted,
    and one man required seven stitches after he cut his head falling off a
    chair while watching the film.
    4) The Chico, California, City Council enacted a ban on nuclear weapons,
    setting a $500 fine for anyone detonating one within city limits.
    5) A bus carrying five passengers was hit by a car in St. Louis, but by the
    time police arrived on the scene, fourteen pedestrians had boarded the bus
    and had begun to complain of whiplash injuries and back pain.
    6) Swedish business consultant Ulf af Trolle labored 13 years on a book
    about Swedish economic solutions. He took the 250-page manuscript to be
    copied, only to have it reduced to 50,000 strips of paper in seconds when a
    worker confused the copier with the shredder.
    7) A convict broke out of jail in Washington D.C., then a few days later
    accompanied his girlfriend to her trial for robbery. At lunch, he went out
    for a sandwich. She needed to see him, and thus had him paged. Police
    officers recognized his name and arrested him as he returned to the
    courthouse in a car he had stolen over the lunch hour.
    8) Police in Radnor, Pennsylvania, interrogated a suspect by placing a metal
    colander on his head and connecting it with wires to a photocopy machine.
    The message "He's lying" was placed in the copier, and police pressed the
    copy button each time they thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth.
    Believing the "lie detector" was working, the suspect confessed.
    9) When two service station attendants in Ionia, Michigan, refused to hand
    over the cash to an intoxicated robber, the man threatened to call the
    police. They still refused, so the robber called the police and was
    10) A Los Angeles man who later said he was "tired of walking," stole a
    steamroller and led police on a 5 mph chase until an officer stepped aboard
    and brought the vehicle to a stop.

    I think I've encountered some of these folks. [ROFL]
    Tina was just telling me about one that was on the news today about a woman in Florida who called the cops to buy drugs and then took her money and went to the police station and tried to buy some pot from the uniformed officer.
    BTW, where is CRC [troll]
    Kind of like a recent case where a dope dealer had been passing out business cards and the cops just called the number on the card and set up the bust. [ROFL] [ROFL]
