Apparently, Australia has only 30 days of liquid fuel left. Yes, you heard me, Australia has just 22 days of crude oil, 59 days of LPG, 20 days of petrol, 19 days of aviation fuel and 21 days of diesel remaining. How could this be happening? Seems our government have taken their eye off the ball and don’t have a plan B when it comes to surplus fuel. The US strike on Syria and Middle East unrest haven’t helped. Australia relies on the Middle East for 91% of its transport fuel which basically means I will need to start pumping up my bike tyres.
It didn’t take long for the Massachusetts police to nab a shoplifter in Walmart. The fool used Play-doh on the security alarms and left a nice big friggin fingerprint in it. Doh! Fast forward to the Connecticut Forensics Lab and well you can guess the rest.
OK, one more time people, please DON’T use other people’s urine to pass a drug test. A woman in Ohio was handed an 18 month sentence after she thought she had fooled the system by submitting someone else’s urine. Unfortunately, she didn’t ask the vital question because her friend’s sample tested positive for drugs. Damn it!
I woke to the news that the serial killer and rapist, known as the Night Stalker/Golden Gate Killer, has been caught. Women in California can close their other eye now. The serial killer stalked, killed and/ or raped his victims from 1978 to the late 1980s. It turns out the torch carrying, micropenis, knot making torturer was an ex-cop, who still lives in Sacremento. He is allegedly responsible for 12 murders and 45 rapes. Along with the Zodiac Killer, the Golden Gate killer had been one of the most baffling unsolved crimes in American history. Despite having DNA Joseph James DeAngelo, 72 had miraculously gone under the radar until now. The arrest follows the release of a book I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by the late writer Michelle McNamara (actor-comedian Patton Oswalt completed the book following his wife’s unexpected death).
Apparently, insurance scams are a big thing in Asia, who knew? People are throwing themselves (very obviously) in front of vehicles in the hope of collecting a payout. Just bless. I love these people.
The little Dutch town of Jelsum, that installed the world’s first musical road, want it removed. Yep, messing with their heads. The tune is played when cars drive over the strategically placed strips on the side of the road. Their song of choice was the anthem of Friesland. The locals are now bitching that the song is constantly playing day and night.
Australia just had the Commonwealth Games, kind of like beginners Olympics without most of the high ranking countries. I like to call it an Interschool carnival. Anywho, during the marathon, a Welsh runner, who had been leading for most of the event, collapsed from heat exhaustion. You would think with 2km to go and looking completely done someone, anyone, would help him. Apparently no. Seems you can’t touch an athlete during the race or they are instantly disqualified. Hmm, seriously, I don’t think he was going anywhere. It’s ironic because if someone did help him it would be all about the idiot who helped him and he got disqualified.
