GOLF DILEMMA

March 30, 2014 at 11:35 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Imagine if you were playing in the club championship final and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes. You had the honor and hit your ball a modest two hundred fifty yards into the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin

Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway.

Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball. Just before the permitted five minute search period ends, your opponent says: “Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don’t find it in time, I’ll concede the match.”

You hit your ball, landing it on the green, stopping about ten feet from the pin.

About the time your ball comes to rest, you hear your opponent exclaim from deep in the woods: “I found it!” The second sound you hear is a click, the sound of a club striking a ball and the ball comes sailing out of the woods and lands on the green, stopping no more than six inches from the hole.

Now here is the ethical dilemma: Do you pull the cheating bastard’s ball out of your pocket and confront him with it, or, do you keep your mouth shut?

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Drunk Japanese man falls onto railway and has leg severed by train but stays passed out for six hours: “The government worker from Saga Prefecture had apparently passed out on a platform at Karatsu Station following a boozy night with friends and had fallen onto the tracks. As he lay next to the railway line, his left leg was almost completely severed just below the knee by a train pulling into the station for the night. The train driver had not noticed him and incredibly it is believed the man remained asleep with his leg hanging off and the train on top of him for the entire night. Despite the extent of his injuries, the man who is in his fifties, was reportedly chatting to emergency workers after they finally arrived to take him to hospital. Japanese authorities said they believed the man had been out drinking with co-workers until around 8.30pm on Wednesday night. He had hoped to catch the 9.38 train to Saga but had failed to get aboard.”

Meet the oldest paper girl in the world: “When her grandson decided to give up his paper round, former Post Office worker Beryl Walker offered to take over his duties. Thirty-five years later and the 88-year-old is still doing the paper round in Gloucester. She has delivered some of the biggest news stories of the last three decades. Now, after clocking up thousands of miles delivering over a million newspapers on her bike, Beryl has been awarded the Guiness World Record for the oldest paper girl in the world. “If it’s five foot of snow, rain, sun, anything – she’ll be out there,” says a neighbour. Beryl gets up at 6am every morning, has a grapefruit for breakfast and then hops on her bike ‘Hercules’ to deliver papers to homes in Gloucester. She works six days a week and cycles over eight miles a day.”

The book Scientologists kept you from reading for 27-years: “A book Scientologists have kept off the shelves of American book stores for 27-years that alleges church founder L. Ron Hubbard was a fantasist with a predilection for bizarre sexual rituals is finally to be published. Written by British journalist Russell Miller in 1986, ‘Bare-Faced Messiah’ cuts a swath through the many myths the Scientologist chief built up around himself and exposes him as a charismatic charmer, who targeted celebrity devotees. Miller alleges that Hubbard lied about his service in World War 2 and that instead of the millions of members the church claims to have – in fact only counts around 25,000 people as followers. Now finally, it has been printed by Silvertail Books, with a newly written introduction from Miller. The Church wanted Bare-Faced Messiah’s publication halted on account of the copyright issues arising from Armstrong handing over Hubbard’s papers to Miller.”

One way to get pesky tenants out: “Police say an 86-year-old man shot his grandson in the head and then killed the grandson’s girlfriend before fatally shooting himself in New York City. Authorities say Heriberto Pagan, of Brooklyn, shot his 47-year-old grandson, Micheal Feliciano, in the cheek outside of a Staten Island house in Park Hill about 6:15 p.m on Friday evening before shooting 28-year-old Claritle Christina Huerta in the head inside the house. Huerta died at a hospital. The New York Daily News reports that Pagan ‘snapped’ because he felt his grandson and his girlfriend were taking advantage of his 69-year-old daughter Mildred Feliciano by living in her Staten Island home. A judge recently approved Mildred Feliciano’s request to evict her son Micheal who has multiple drug related charges. The court marshal has yet to receive the eviction notice.”

Woman is reunited with man she fell for on a plane: “A New York City woman who decided a guy she met on a flight was the man of her dreams managed to reconnect with him despite forgetting his name thanks to Twitter. Emily Domesek had some help from the kind folks at American Airlines, who she initially tweeted at to help her in her quest. They were slow to lend a hand, but when they did her message went viral. ‘Dear @AmericanAir: just got off my flight with my future husband, but didn’t catch his full name,’ Domesek tweeted in the first of a string of correspondences with the airline. And her persistence paid off. The airline declined to directly contact the mystery man, but they did give Domesek a platform that reaches over 780,000 followers on which to ask the public for help. ‘To close the book on this story. The universe brought us together & he’s amazing. FULL STOP. #romance CC: @AmericanAir,’ she wrote.”
