WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1356)



NO ‘BURPS’ REQUIRED
When one is thirsty, a nice, cold bottle of beer can really hit the spot. But the thieves who broke into a shop in Muelheim, Germany, and opened 1,200 bottles of Koenig Pilsener beer, never drank even one. They stole only the bottles’ caps, trying to win prizes offered through a brewery promotion.(http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/burglars-open-1-200-bottles-koenig-pilsener-beer-steal-bottle-n411606)
NO DATING FOR MATING REQUIRED
Zoologists at the University of Basel in Switzerland have discovered a flatworm species, Macrostomum hystrix, which require no sex partner to reproduce. They believe the flatworm makes the most of its hermaphroditic qualities and injects its sperm into its own head, from which the sperm sometimes migrates to the worm's reproductive facilities.

DIGGING UP AN OLD PROBLEM
August 20, 2015, WKYT.com reported an officer had caught an intoxicated Michael May, 44, digging up a grave at a cemetery in Sanford, Kentucky, and arrested him. While rambling Bible verses, May tried to explain he was just trying to resolve an argument he had with his father before his death.
