Farzad Jehani and his brother Farhang rock. Less than 5 days after Mumbai was besieged by gun toting terrorists the owners of Leopold’s cafe have reopened it. Yes, this is the cafe that was shot to smithereens and 10 of its patrons killed when militants targeted the popular eatery only a few days ago (Wednesday). OK you might find the odd splat of blood here and there or the occasional bullet hole in the walls, but Farzad (Mr Defiant) says he “would never let terrorists win.We will prove to terrorists by opening that we have won, you have not won,”. I am also sure that financially the brothers needed to get the doors open as soon as possible because there is nothing like a massacre to kill a business. But they needn’t have worried that the bloody incident was going to damage their business because the moment those shutters were pulled up on Sunday morning, customers poured into the cafe, some cheering “God Bless India”. Leopold’s Cafe has been operating for 137 years and it will take more than a handful of gun crazed friggin terrorists to change that! Bravo boys.

Hmm, I don’t know if this is friggin cruel or friggin funny. Scientists from the Pacific University of Oregon built the shrimp treadmill to see how far the little blighter would travel for food. Professor David Scholnick, heading the experiment, was surprised to discover the super fit crustacean could jog for hours without a break at speeds of 66ft per minute. Even more surprising was that his little science experiment video of the exercising creature became an instant hit on YouTube. Wanna see it?
Warning to all men in Uganda, don’t go sniffing around woman’s chests if you can help it, you may be in for a big surprise, a booby trap!. A gang of robbers have found a neat way to clean out visiting businessmen wallets, chloroform coated women.The gang uses big breasted accomplices planted in popular bars and nightclubs to find cashed up victims and then well you know, get them believing they are in for a good time. Before they know it they are naked and lying in a gutter somewhere, stripped of their money and their dignity.
Juliana Mukasa is just one of the women thieves who has been robbing and humiliating men in Uganda for years. Fred Enanga spokesman for Criminal Investigations Directorate said “You find the person stripped totally naked and everything is taken from him,”. There is a sort of “serves yourself right” element to this story.
Anadel Carrizales was driving along in his pick-up in Monterrey, Mexico, minding his own business when he noticed a blonde in a black miniskirt stranded along the side of the road. Being a gentleman Anadel,stopped to see if she needed a hand (as men do when a damsel in a miniskirt is in distress). The blonde wandered over to the kind hearted man and told him that there was a gun being pointed at him so he better hand over his money. She (now referred to as bitch) then tied him up with packing tape and super glued his hands to the steering wheel of his truck before taking off with his wallet and all of his credit cards.Fortunately he was able to steer himself to the nearest police station where emergency services were called to free his hands. Imagine how Anadel Carrizales explained this little incident to his wife!
Black Friday indeed. A part time employee Jdimytai Damour from Wal Mart was killed when desperate shoppers broke down the door of a Long Island store in New York State to grab a bargain at 5 O’clock in the morning.The unfortunate soul was manning the front entrance of Valley Stream when a surge of consumers burst through the doors and trampled him (four shoppers were also taken to hospital). It took staff several minutes to find the flattened Wal Mart employee as there were hundreds of people walking over him. The first Friday after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday , when retail stores open early to offer discounts. Hmm, I am guessing Wal Mart staff won’t want to be on rostered door duty on that day again! Meanwhile two people are dead after a gun fight broke out in the car park of Toys “R” Us store in Palm Desert, California. No word on what toy this dispute was about but I imagine it wasn’t worth it!
