Odd news from around the world
The bike lock that makes thieves immediately vomit: “Called SkunkLock, this steel U-Lock is designed with a built-in deterrent of very potent and legally compliant gas that escapes when the lock is cut open. This formula has the ability to compromise sight, cause shortness of breath, induce vomiting and permanently sticks to the clothes worn by the bike burglar. Skunklock is a hardened medium-carbon steel U-Lock that’s as difficult to compromise as the strongest U-Locks. “It’s pressurised inside with a noxious chemical deterrent that slams the would-be thief with noxious chemicals. The chemicals are so disgusting they induce vomit in the majority of cases, and elicit an instinctive response to run away immediately.”
Expedia cancelled woman’s holiday and sent email dropping the F-bomb: “A MOTHER was shocked and appalled when she got an email from travel website Expedia.com which cancelled her holiday and said “F**k you.” It all started when Viramontes made a booking for a New Year’s travel reservation, and felt the person she dealt with did not give her good customer service. Two days later, she got the email telling her that her trip had been cancelled. When she called customer service, they told her she was to blame for her booking being cancelled. She responded by sending a screenshot of the email with the expletive: “F**k You” on it. On Tuesday morning she still had not got any offer of compensation. However, when CBS2 got in touch with the website they told the network action was being taken: “We take this matter very seriously and have opened up an investigation analysing every click and action made by our customer service agents.”
Senior policewoman ‘had a drunken row with a colleague over whose breasts were most attractive’: “Assistant Chief Constable Rebekah Sutcliffe, 47, faces claims that she exposed her bosom during a late-night row and could be sacked if found guilty of gross misconduct. ACC Sutcliffe argued with her junior colleague Superintendent Sarah Jackson at the Hilton hotel bar. It is claimed ACC Sutcliffe told her colleague she was ‘pandering to men’ by having cosmetic surgery, and tried to prove her own breasts were better by exposing them. They were reported to bosses by a witness, and initially both were told they faced investigation over alleged inappropriate behaviour. Social media photos show ACC Sutcliffe ‘opened the gala event’ at one night of the conference, standing near Supt Jackson at a party where wine flowed freely. Supt Jackson has been told she is in the clear. If the case against ACC Sutcliffe were proven, she would be hit with sanctions ranging from ‘management advice’ to dismissal.
Waitress fights off two armed robbers with a broom handle when they attempt to steal from her till: “A plucky woman working in a southern fried chicken restaurant took on two armed robbers after taking on armed robber using just a stick. The robbers targeted a Pollolandia (Chicken Land) restaurant in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The two men are recorded entering the shop in a bid to steal the day’s takings. Both are holding guns and one of the men runs over the till to grab the cash. But, as he is attempting to wrench out the cash desk he is attacked from behind by the angry restaurant worker. She belts him over the back with a broom handle, hitting him so hard that it breaks. The robber clearly does not have the stomach for a beating and turns and runs off. When his armed colleague realises what has happened he also flees. Thanks to the woman’s actions, the robbers only managed to steal 80,000 Costa Rican colones (about £118) in cash”
Creepy clown hits teenager in the face with a wooden plank – so the victim’s friends run his attacker over and leave him lying in a pool of blood: “The teenagers had been driving around for hours looking for clowns, when at midnight they heard word of one lurking near an old factory. They spot the clown brandishing a wooden plank, and one of the teenagers decides to get out of the car to talk to them. ‘Oh s*** hes got a stick,’ one of the boys says. ‘What’s he gonna do?’ says the teenager as he walks closer to the clown. The clown then lifts the stick and hits the boy across the face. He falls to the ground and in a crazed panic the victim’s friend drives into the clown. The video ends as the teens walk up to the clown, who they find lying in a pool of blood.
