Bareback riding

bizarrecyclingOn Sunday June 15th London was treated to the sight of hundreds of cyclists, in varying degrees of nakedness, riding through the city as the annual London Naked Bike Ride took place, one of many other rides as part of World Naked Bike Ride. The ride was intended to protest against oil dependency and celebrate cycling and the human body. No reports of skidmarks have been made.

It wasn't a vampire

bizarreufo_400Officials from the Romanian Defense Military confirmed that one of their MiG-21 Lancer fighter planes was struck by four Unidentified Flying Objects on October 31, 2007, which shattered the plane's cockpit. The military also released a video captured by the plane's on-board camera as it was flying above Transylvania. The recording shows solid bodies, which authorities are working to determine the identity of. Officials have already been able to determine the bodies were not birds or pieces of another plane, a meteorite or ice. Rocket launches and ground artillery shots were also ruled out as possible explanations for the incident.

12 Distracted Men

bizarresudokuA drug trial in Sydney, Australia was aborted yesterday after several jurors were found to be playing sudoku puzzles during proceedings. The Crown trial, in which Andrew Daniel Lonsdale and Kane Holland were accused of conspiracy to manufacture a commercial quantity of amphetamines, had been running for over three months, involved 105 witnesses and cost over A$1 million, and was scheduled to end soon with both parties prepared to deliver final statements this week. While giving evidence last week, Lonsdale noticed the jury forewoman apparently writing notes vertically rather than horizontally, in the manner of someone solving a sudoku. The co-accused, Holland, made the same observation, and their defence counsel lodged an appeal to the judge.

bizarrerobber_400Banking on a Test Drive

Cops are hunting a man who allegedly robbed money from a bank to buy a used truck while the salesman waited outside. About 10 a.m. Tuesday, a man took the truck for a test drive from a downtown car dealership. The salesman tagged along and the two went to a bank near 111 Avenue and Groat Road, where he waited inside the truck while the man went inside. The man told the salesman he needed to get money to pay for the truck. The salesman didn't know it, but the man allegedly passed a note to a bank teller demanding cash. He got the cash and left the bank. He climbed inside the truck and told the salesman he wanted to show the truck to a friend in Sherwood Park before buying it.
