Steve Easton of Surrey in the UK suffered a terrible sneezing fit, and when he was done he pulled a rubber dart cap from his nose. After telling his mother about the event, she recalled a story he had forgotten from when Steve was just 7 or 8 years old. As it turns out, he was taken to the hospital after getting a dart stuck up his nose as a kid, where doctors were unable to find it after X-rays.
Pablo Picasso’s “Women of Algiers (Version O)” was making headlines this week when it sold at Christie’s for a whopping $179 million, making it the most expensive painting ever purchased at an auction.
Fox5 in New York also reported on the news, and one of their producers decided to blur out all the b00bs in the image, infuriating many people online.
Jerry Saltz, senior art critic for New York Magazine, pointed out the unnecessary censorship on Twitter Wednesday.
And others also criticized the station for bizarre editorial decision.
The hosts of Fox 5’s morning show “Good Day New York” did a segment on the controversy Thursday, in which they showed the uncensored piece, calling themselves “art connoisseurs” and blasting their coworkers who made the unfortunate decision.
“We get it,” said Greg Kelly. “It was ridiculous!”
Paul Knight from the UK here ripped away a woman's bag (perhaps searching for the cheeky Nando's inside) while she was walking home with her husband. After he had left the scene he realized he dropped his phone along the way. And what better way to get back your lost goods than ask the police for help?
That did not end well.
The money quote, however, comes from the case's judge Edward Bindloss:
You dropped your mobile phone and in a rather unsophisticated act you telephoned the police and inquired if someone had handed it in. That is how you came to be arrested.
That's David Menzies right there. Mezies had a plan so simple it was stupid: Test drive a new Jeep, smash and grab some goods from a bike store, then drive off with his new vehicle.
What he didn't think too much about was that the store he wanted to rob was right next to the Hammerfist Krav Maga school. That's where co-owner Jason Carrio comes in.
Carrio attempted to call the police, but when it was clear that Menzies was about to make away with the bikes and goods, he ripped him out of his vehicle and subdued him until authorities arrived. A pretty ballsy move!
Almost as ballsy as trying to conduct a robbery next to a bunch of trained martial artists.
