A beer storm?

It’s actually a huge dust storm that hit Western Australia in early 2013




Odd news from around the world

Man is raped at gunpoint by THREE women so they could collect his semen: “A man was kidnapped at gunpoint and raped by three women who collected his semen in a cool box and stealing it before abandoning their victim – and the method is part of a growing trend. The 33-year-old man gave the women directions when they pulled up in a black BMW. Suddenly, one of the women armed with a gun got out and forced him into the back of the car at gunpoint. The trio then drove him 500km away and fondled him in the back of the car but he did not become aroused, so they forced him to drink an ‘unknown substance’ from a bottle to aid him. They then raped the man repeatedly and collected his semen in plastic bags, placing them in a cooler box. The man was then kicked out of the car, 500 km away from where they picked him up in the Kwazakhele township, Port Elizabeth, and made off with the stolen sperm. The exact same method is being used by women in Gauteng, who are also forcing men to drink from a bottle and stealing their semen but no arrests have been made. The man was fully conscious throughout his ordeal and he is still traumatised.”

Truck spills its load of £1MILLION in coins: “Armed police were sent to guard a lorry after it spilled a valuable load – of more than £1million cash. The specialist officers were brought into stop anyone making off with the loot which scattered across the road. Motorists reported the Loomis lorry braking hard as it approached a roundabout before crates laden with cash and coins crashed through the front of its trailer. Sergeant Gemma Vinton, among the first on the scene, said: ‘At the moment we are assisting with traffic control and trying to get to the bottom of what’s happened. ‘My understanding is no other vehicles have been involved in the incident. The Loomis lorry stopped in Mead Way at about 1.30pm on Thursday.

British judge fines man for something he didn’t do and had no control over: “An estranged father who was banned from seeing his children has been prosecuted after their mother took them on holiday in term time. Shane Allen branded the justice system a ‘joke’ after he was convicted of failing to make sure his children went to school, despite being prevented from seeing the youngsters. The 44-year-old found himself in court after his ex-partner took their three children on holiday to Scotland when they should have been in lessons. At the time Allen had no access to his children and was not aware that Charlene Megraw had taken them out of school. Allen had even been temporarily barred from seeing the youngsters by social services and had been completely unaware that their mother was planning the impromptu holiday, the appeal court heard. The school then issued fixed penalties to the pair and both Allen and 24-year-old Miss Megraw, from Newbury, Berks., were taken to court and found guilty of failing to ensure their children attended school. Both were handed 12 month conditional discharges and were ordered to pay costs of £150 each by magistrates.”

Another triumph of British bureaucracy: “A woman claims she was forced to lie in agony with a broken hip on a pavement for an hour, waiting for an ambulance to arrive from a town 30 miles away. That is despite her falling just five minutes from the nearest ambulance station. Debbie Stafford has criticised managers at the Welsh Ambulance Service for the delay. She tripped and fractured her hip while walking in the town of Machynlleth, Powys on March 28. But she was left to wait on the cold pavement for an ambulance from Llanidloes, Powys – 30 miles away. Ambulance chiefs dispute the length of time Ms Stafford was waiting, noting their logs reveal an crew arrived within 39 minutes. They did, however, accept 39 minutes was outside the target time for a call of its type. The 50-year-old, who is still on crutches and in pain following a full hip replacement, said she is angry that she was waiting for so long, despite lying just five minutes from Machynlleth’s ambulance station. Ms Stafford added: ‘The ambulance eventually came from Llanidloes.”

‘My driver’s license branded me a sexual predator’: “A 42-year-old woman who was branded a sex offender by her own driver’s license is suing the Florida authorities who recorded the slur. Tammy Lemasters had the words ‘SEXUAL PREDATOR’ written in the bottom-right corner of her license by officials in Lake County, near Orlando. It went unnoticed for several days until she noticed the label when handing over the ID in a store – and promptly burst into tears from unwarranted shame. Lemasters, a restaurant worker with three teen children said: ‘I was afraid to drive in my car. I was afraid of getting pulled over. I was afraid of the kids being in the car’. The manager of the Lake County Tax Collector’s officer, which handles licenses in Lemasters’ region, said the error was a mistake. Lemasters and her attorney say it was probably caused by an administrator choosing the wrong entry in a drop-down box. O’Keefe even argued that it is the customer’s responsibility to double-check their documentation to make sure they aren’t mistakenly branded a criminal. Her attorney, John Phillips, said he knew of two similar instances in Florida”
