Thursday 8/30


A tourist in Ice­land gen­er­ously vol­un­teered her time to search for a miss­ing woman. The deba­cle began when the woman got off a tour bus at a vol­cano, then changed her clothes before re-boarding. Because the dri­ver didn’t rec­og­nize her, she was reported as miss­ing, and police spent the week­end search­ing for her. After tak­ing part in the search her­self, it dawned on the woman that SHE was the one they were look­ing for and she informed police.

New Mex­ico cor­rec­tions offi­cers say an inmate escaped his jail cell by break­ing a win­dow bar with a razor blade and a Pop­si­cle stick!  Car­los Gar­cia told police it took about five months to break the bar on his cell win­dow at the Lea County jail with those mate­ri­als. He also used plas­tic, news­pa­per and more Pop­si­cle sticks to fash­ion a fake win­dow. But, Gar­cia changed his mind and climbed back into his second-story cell using a bedsheet!

Hu Seng, paid a courier firm to deliver him to his girl­friend Li Wang as a joke.  The prob­lem was he was inside a box which he neglected to put air holes in!  That became a prob­lem after the deliv­ery dri­ver got lost look­ing for her address. He had enough air in the box to last an hour, but the trip ended up last­ing three times that long, so by the time he was dropped at her office, he was uncon­scious, and had to be revived by paramedics.
