Odd news from around the world

Muslim head-teacher believes if females run excessively they may lose their virginity’: “The principal of an Islamic school has come under fire after he reportedly banned girls from running, amid fears it would cause them to lose their virginity. Former teachers of Al-Taqwa College, in Melbourne’s outer western suburbs, claim in a letter sent to the state and federal education ministers that principal Omar Hallak was discriminating against female students. The Age reported that the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority is currently investigating the allegations. This comes a month after revelations that Mr Hallak was telling students at his school that Islamic State was not ‘created’ by Muslims, but was instead a plot against them by the West.”

Are these the boots of a dead SAMURAI?: “Could these be the boots of a disembodied samurai soldier, lingering mysteriously behind this little girl? A spooky dark visage that appears behind the child in this photograph has sparked online rumours of a ghost. This photograph was captured in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan – ‘nearby some samurai tombs’, apparently – late last year. The Reddit user who posted it online – a friend of the photographer – insisted it was ‘not photoshopped’ and that paranormal forces could be at work. ‘I’m not saying it’s anything – just that it looks an awful lot like disembodied boots and legs…’ ‘Obiaruf ‘ told users. He then suggested they appeared to be ‘samurai boots to me’. ‘I know there are several very old samurai tombs nearby.” Photographs from the same set show the little girl with nothing behind her and the snapper ‘swears’ there was nothing behind her at the time.”

Pilot became distracted and forgot to land plane because passenger was ‘coughing incessantly’: “A pilot has blamed one of his passengers for coughing ‘incessantly’ into his headset during a short flight in the Northern Territory which caused him to forget to put the landing gear down, an air crash report has found. The Australian Air Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) released its report on Wednesday into the ‘wheels up landing’ on December 12, 2014 at Jabiru Airport, southeast of Darwin. The unidentified pilot was flying a six-seat Cessna 310 aircraft, registered VH-TBE, with two adults and three children on board when he became distracted by one of the passengers. The pilot also reported that the children on board were ‘excited and a little disruptive’ during the flight. He then was reported to have commenced his pre-landing checks and verbalised ‘undercarriage down’, but made a decision to ‘leave this particular action until later on final approach’. ‘This incident highlights the impact a combination of distractions can have on aircraft operations,’ the ATSB report concluded. However the report also found the pilot was ‘relatively new to the C-310’.

A downpour of fake photography in Sydney, Australia: “A waterfall gushing over the Harbour Bridge, a man surfing waves in front of the Opera House and a crocodile stalking flood water inside a train station are just a few of the fake photos to emerge from the Sydney storm. Social media users were left scratching their heads over some of the manipulated snaps being shared during New South Wales’ worst storm in a decade, including an image of a family-sized trampoline caught on power lines. While there were many genuine dramatic photos to emerge from the devastating storm, such as torn up roads and floating houses, not all of them were quite what they seemed. Eagle-eyed Twitter users pointed out that the large trampoline believed to have blown into the sky in the cyclone-strength gusts in NSW was actually a victim of Hurricane Sandy in Milford, Connecticut, USA. The crocodile at the bottom of the steps in Lewisham station was merely an imaginative prank, as was a reused Photoshop snap of sharks swimming at the bottom of a train station escalator. And the video of a wave rider surfing in front of Sydney’s Opera House was nothing but a hoax – even when it started trending for a second time.”

You’ve been warned! Dad puts his muscly picture on a t-shirt for his daughter to scare the boys away: “A protective dad has devised a creative way to keep the boys away from his young daughter – by printing his muscly torso on a t-shirt and making her wear it. ‘Stay Clear Boys,’ a message on the shirt warns. ‘This is my dad!’ And while his daughter doesn’t look too happy about the new attire, her father is pictured grinning beside her. Kit Dale, a two-time World Pro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion from Melbourne, Australia, shared the image to his Facebook page on Sunday, writing: ‘Hahahha smart dad.’ While some commenters both applauded the move – and even asked whether the girl was in need of a step-mother – others ridiculed it.”
