WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1345)



SETTING AN EXAMPLE, NOT
In late February 2015, The Gainesville Sun (Florida) reported Debra Oberlin, 48, had been arrested on drunk driving charges, after registering .234 on a breathalyzer test; almost three times the maximum level. Oh, yeah, and she used to be president of a defunct chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. (http://www.mediaite.com/online/this-exists-former-president-of-madd-arrested-on-dui-charge/)
HOW FOOLISH THEY MUST FEEL
Early August 2015, eleven bounty hunters surrounded a home in Phoenix, demanding a wanted felon surrender. Surprisingly, Phoenix’s police arrived, wanting to know why the bounty hunters had picked the home of their boss, police Chief Joseph Yahner? Turns out, the cause was a misguided tip.

LOT’S OF UPS-AND-DOWNS
Here’s a quote from Jack Sexty, 25, Bristol, England: "Five or six hours in I just couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel - it was really hard but I got there in the end," What he did was surpass the Guinness World Record bouncing non-stop on a pogo stick, by achieving 10 hours 21 minutes.
