THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Teen carjackers try to steal woman’s car in Seattle but flee scene after realising they can’t drive non-automatic: “THREE teens were left red-faced when they tried to steal a woman’s car, but couldn’t because none of them knew how to drive a manual. Nancy Fredrickson, 70, from Seattle, had walked around the back of her KIA sedan to get something from the boot when a male wielding a gun demanded her keys, komonews.com reports. The terrified woman dropped her keys and the trio jumped into her car. But the joke was on the wannabe carjackers when they realised Ms Fredrickson’s car was a manual — or stick shift as they are known in the US — and not an automatic. “I got a five speed in there,” Ms Fredrickson said. “They couldn’t figure out how to get it going!” When the teens realised none of them could drive the vehicle, they bolted.”

VietJet Air plane lands at wrong airport 100km away: “Vietnam’s aviation authority has suspended the crew of a plane operated by budget airline VietJet Air after a flight bound for the tourist hub of Da Lat landed at another airport more than 100 kilometres away. The scheduled flight VJ 8575 carrying 200 passengers landed at Cam Ranh airport near the coastal city of Nha Trang – another popular tourist destination – on Thursday night, instead of the Central Highlands town of Da Lat around 130 kilometres to the southwest. The incident occurred “because of the flight coordinators and crew members of VietJet Air, who did not correctly follow flight procedures”, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) in an online statement.”

Burglar busted after stopping to check FACEBOOK on victim’s computer and forgetting to log out: “When it comes to criminals and the stupid things they do, this one is right up there. A 26-year-old Minnesota man has been tracked down by police after leaving his Facebook profile logged in at a house he allegedly robbed. Authorities say Nicholas Wig burgled a home in South St. Paul on June 19 and must have decided to use the computer before he fled the property. But he forgot to sign out. When the owner, James Wood, arrived home and found his place had been ransacked, he reported it to police, CBS reported. Sometime later Mr Wood noticed a Facebook page on his computer he didn’t recognize. Realizing what must have happened, he shared a picture of Wig from Wig’s profile. Mr Wood announced Wig was a thief and shared his phone number, asking for anyone with information to call him. Wig faces up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines if convicted.”

‘Hair loss pills made my penis shrink’: “Like many men in their thirties, Paul Innes was unhappy about his thinning hair. The doctor performed blood tests to rule out thyroid problems, and Mr Innes was recommended Propecia – an EU approved drug, also known as finasteride. But within about six weeks he says he began to have ‘strange thoughts’. ‘When I was trying to be intimate with Hayley I was practically impotent and I remember more or less waking up one morning and I had no connection between my brain and my genitals – it was unbelievable. Speaking to The Sun earlier in the week, he said: ‘My penis is totally different in size and girth. ‘It’s much shorter and thinner. It now functions about ten per cent of the time with Viagra. ‘Every time me and Hayley tried to make love, my head said yes but down there I felt nothing.”

Student gets stuck in giant stone vagina in Germany: “What was meant to be a funny dare turned into an utter embarrassment for an American exchange student, who found himself trapped in a giant stone vagina in Germany. Firefighters had to be called in to deliver the man, head-first, to safety after his feet became trapped in the large marble sculpture at Tubingen University in Germany. The unnamed man is believed to have been dared to climb inside the sculpture, which sits outside the university’s institute for microbiology and virology. But his legs soon became wedged in the carving and, despite labouring to free himself, the experts had to be summoned. A total of 22 firefighters, five fire engines and a number of paramedics were sent to the scene, and quickly freed the man “by hand without use of equipment”, the newspaper reported. “The fire department was not really amused, and he was really embarrassed.” The sculpture, by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara, has sat outside the university for 13 years and was not damaged.
