Odd news from around the world

That’s not a knife, that is a… spoon!: “A 24-year-old man from Vienna, Austria, attempted to rob a city bank yesterday armed with nothing but a stainless silver spoon. The unnamed man walked in to the bank demanding cash and pretended he had a knife – but bank staff immediately spotted he was just carrying a dessert spoon. They called the police and refused to hand over any money to the would-be robber. The man entered a bank branch just before 4pm in Weintraubengasse in the 2nd district yesterday afternoon, walked straight over to the cashier and demanded money. The cashier pretended he was going to get some cash and instead called the police. The man sat down in the waiting area and was still sat there patiently when police found and arrested him. He is currently being held in prison and said he did it because he needed the money.

British authorities launch crackdown on FAIRIES “A woodland trust has today been forced to deny it is ‘anti-fairy’ after it launched a crackdown on the number of doors being nailed to trees as homes for the tiny ethereal beings. Fairy control has had to be brought in at Wayford Woods in Somerset because it has been overwhelmed by hundreds of sprite homes. Families with children flock to the woodland to nail doors to trees and leave notes for the fairies at the beauty spot near Crewkerne – but critics say it has descended into a fairy ‘free-for-all’. Wayford Trustee Steven Acreman said: ‘We’ve got little doors everywhere. We’re not anti-fairies but it’s in danger of getting out of control. The doors have been installed by local people so children can leave messages for the fairies. But some may have to be removed and a ban imposed. Mr Acreman said: ‘We’ve had as many as 10 doors put up on a single tree, they surrounded the tree,’ he said.”

The boy who overdosed on LIQUORICE: “A boy suffered multiple seizures after overdosing on liquorice sweets. The 10-year-old boy was admitted to hospital in Bologna, Italy, after suffering a seizure. Hours later, doctors reported he suffered another three seizures. He also complained of a bad headache and had high blood pressure. He appeared to be suffering from posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), a condition characterized by headache, confusion, seizures and visual loss. It transpired that he had been eating at least 20 liquorice sweets each day for the past four months. This mean he was consuming of 2.88 mg/kg of glycyrrhizin or glycyrrhizic acid, one of the active ingredients of liquorice. This excessive consumption had resulted in his development of high blood pressure, and in turn PRES. After the boy stopped eating the sweets, his treatment was gradually reduced and his blood pressure returned to normal.”

One in three people who order designer products online receive a fake: “A third of Americans have purchased designer goods online which have turned out to be fakes. According to new research by fashion retailer Crossroads Trading, which surveyed 1,000 adults, one in three people who had ordered a designer item online were left furious when a counterfeit product arrived on their doorstep. Almost half of those participants said the fake item was of poor quality, while 43 per cent said it looked nothing like the original picture. One in 10 went as far as to say that their counterfeit item was ‘falling apart’ when it arrived. The research also indicated that the five designer items most likely to be copied by fraudsters are handbags, sunglasses, purses, watches and jeans – all of which are among the most popular products currently being bought by consumers. Other popular items include wallets, shoes, coats, scarves and belts. Among the brands most likely to be targeted by fraudsters are Louis Vuitton [Above], Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Coach, Nike and Gucci.”

Do you go months without visiting your elderly parents? That’s a ‘mortal sin’ warns Pope: “Children who fail to visit their frail elderly parents for months at a time will go to Hell, the Pope said yesterday. He condemned a family who neglected to visit an old lady in a care home between Christmas and August and declared: ‘Eight months without a visit from her children. This is a mortal sin.’ A mortal sin, in Roman Catholic teaching, is one so great that it rots the soul and will condemn the sinner to Hell unless he or she repents. Pope Francis’ warning to the young not to neglect the elderly was delivered in a general audience before 20,000 people in St Peter’s Square. It followed the call last week from Catholic bishops in England and Wales for voters to support election candidates who value ‘the frail elderly person needing care and facing the frontier of death’. The Pope’s message was addressed to a worldwide audience reaching beyond the Catholic faithful.” His Holiness is an ethnic Italian and this call does reflect Italian values
