I think I would rather have my eyes popped out of my head than witness this spectacle. Usually I like to paraphrase a story but this one is worth putting full out.
A man caught jumping up and down naked on a trampoline has avoided a jail sentence.
James Burden, 55, was spotted by a neighbour in the garden of his Falkirk home at 0500 GMT on 25 March.
Falkirk Sheriff Court heard Burden had his "manhood" in one hand and a cigarette in the other when the neighbour saw him.
She called the police, and Burden was arrested and charged with shameless indecency.
Mike McMahon, prosecuting, said: "He told police he had gone out to the trampoline and had masturbated himself there."
Asked why he did it, Burden told officers: "Just for the thrill of it."
Asked why he looked at his neighbour's window, he said: "Because I had seen the light go on."
He added: "I did not intend anyone to see me."
Burden pleaded guilty to a single charge of publicly exposing his person in a shameless and indecent manner, and approaching his neighbour's house and placing the occupant in a state of fear and alarm.
He appeared for sentencing at Falkirk Sheriff Court earlier this month but attempted to withdraw his plea.
Gordon Addison, defending, said his client now claimed to have "only pled guilty to avoid the embarrassment of a trial".
Sheriff Caldwell refused to allow Burden to withdraw his guilty plea, saying he had confirmed it in court after months of legal advice, and placed him on the sex offenders register.
At the court appearance on Thursday, Sheriff William Gallacher put Burden on probation for a period of three years, and warned if he did not comply with the order, he may be "removed from the community".
He said: "I have read the reports and you will be provided with the support that you need, and it is essential the community is not faced with this sort of behaviour again.
"Breach the probation in any way and you may be removed from the community."
I knew is I waited long enough this month we would see a real candidate for stupid criminal of July. Enter Justin S. Johnson, 21 of Bloomfield, Il that got his hands on a blank check from a person he did work for. Instead of trying to forge a reasonable amount like $750,000 he went the full monty and tried for a cool million. The bank teller knew better and busted him without giving up the cash.
I have just read news reports that they have caught the female bear responsible for a deadly attack at the Soda Butte Campground in Yellowstone Park. Where I work in Ontario we see bears all the time and actually get quite close. Some I know carry sprays and others air horns but generally try to make noise when entering a site to scare them off.
This lady tried to make noise but the bear kept attacking. It wasn’t until she played dead that the bear left. Looks like Bugs Bunny had it right alll along. The things you learn from cartoons.
Here is the news story about the caputre:
Here is the video about the attack that has left one man dead:
I am sure we have all been there before. You get an email or phone call from a couple or friend that is looking for baby clothes and baby items such as car seats, playpens or cribs. I love to help a friend out. I know how expensive it can be to raise a baby, especially in the economic times of this day and age. We never saved any of our baby clothes because we never saw the need and the clothes we had saw their share of body fluids and second hand food. So what are we to do? My other half and I decided to go online and purchase some new toddler clothing. I guess this way the clothing will be new so they can pass it on to another friend or relative. It's like starting a new chain or something.
I had to ask myself the same thing. She is charged with extortion amongst other things. She is accused of extorting sex, money, cash, cars and a house from University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino to keep quiet for the "brief" sex they had.
Here is the full story of the proceedings: Pitino tells jury about sex with extortion suspect
Here is what you really want, a few pictures that may cause any man to be "brief". Maybe not, she looks 100 years old. Like a wind dusted rock or piece of leather that has been out in the sun too long. Your call.
If you watch alot of tv like me then you have to have scratched your head once or twice when you see an odd promotion on a commercial or even in a magazine. It seems that companies will give away just about any promotional products just to sell their goods. They are usually giving away something totally bizzare and non-related to the item they are selling. Here are a few pictures that I came across that are really bizzare promotions.
