The 14th stage of the Tour de France has been marred by sabotage. Some bastard threw tacks on the course causing 30 riders to receive dreaded punctures. Last years winner, Cadel Evans, was forced to stop three times due to punctures while another rider broke his collarbone after riding over the nails. Interestingly, the tacks appeared after the Spanish rider, who eventually one the stage, had ridden past.

No need to panic Sweden, but some explosives were found on a truck which was about to enter a nuclear power plant. Lucky for those routine security checks. The silly bugger who had planted the explosive devices in the vehicle had failed to attach a detonator making it impossible to kaboom. Hmm, unless they were sneaking it in in pieces.
You know someone hates you when they put glue in your flight instruments. Welsh pilot Doug Blair was taking his 5 year old son for a ride in his light aircraft when he realized the airspeed indicator wasn’t working. That can’t be good! After a few WTFs, Blair managed to land the plane safely. A quick inspection of the plane revealed someone had placed glue or resin in the pitot tube (which is aero talk for a thin tube with a cap on it).
