Man Buys Flat With Forgotten Fortune

 

A Norwegian man who bought £15 worth of bitcoins

and then forgot about them for four years has been

able to buy a flat in Oslo thanks to the huge appreciation

of the virtual currency.

   

Kristoffer Koch was doing research on encryption in 2009

when on a whim he decided to invest a small sum in the

recently-created bitcoins.

   

Mr Koch, now 29 and working as an engineer,

only remembered the investment in April this year when

he read an article about the soaring value of bitcoins.

   

His 5,000 bitcoins were suddenly worth around £430,000.

   

After spending a full day trying to remember his password,

Mr Koch cashed in £116,000 by selling a fifth of his

newly-acquired fortune.

   

After deducting 28% in taxes, the money was enough

for the deposit and restoration of a flat in central Oslo,

one of the world's most expensive cities.

   

"Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that they

would have soared like this," Mr Koch said.

   

"It's bizarre. These psychological reflexes that make us

attach a value to something that doesn't have any in itself."

   

Bitcoins can be exchanged for real money or used to

purchase goods and services online.

   

The virtual currency is increasingly used for internet

transactions and its value is extremely volatile, subject to speculation.

Man Punched Horse


He was mad at the horse.

Korey Jerelds, 30, was arrested early Saturday

after he allegedly punched a police horse in the neck

several times following a loud verbal disturbance.

 

According to WTSP,

 

an officer on a horseback was dispersing a crowd

when Jerelds "yelled an expletive about the horse

and took a fighting stance before punching the animal."

 

Jerelds now faces charges of interfering with or

obstructing a police dog or horse.

The horse, whose name is Mr. George II,

was not harmed in the incident, according to WESH.

 

Oddly, assaults on police horses seem to be somewhat common.

In August, a woman in Texas

pleaded guilty to slapping a police horse

after an officer stopped her for drinking in public.

 

Diane Harvey, who was apparently intoxicated,

refused to put her drink down and began walking away

from the mounted police officer. When the officer

blocked her way with his horse,

an irate Harvey slapped the animal.

   

In 2012, a

shirtless reveler at the Savannah, Ga., St. Patrick's Day Parade slapped a police horse and then tried to outrun three of them.

Needless to say, his escape didn't work out like he'd hoped.

'Joker,' Gets Drunk Driving Charge After Crashing Through Trees

No need to call Batman, this joker was stopped by some trees.

Dennis Lalime, a 64-year-old Maine man

returning from a Halloween party, crashed his car Sunday

while allegedly intoxicated, the Morning Sentinel reports.

In his mugshot picture, Lalime can be seen wearing

white face paint with green hair, similar to that of The Joker,

Batman's arch nemesis.

 

According to WCBD,

 

Lalime allegedly lost control of his car at around 2 a.m.,

crashing into multiple trees and rocks before coming to a stop.

His car was damaged, but Lalime suffered no injuries.

Lalime was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

Necropants, Made From Dead Man's Skin, At Center Of Icelandic Legend (NSFW)                                    

Link



If you thought skinny pants were a new trend,

think again -- they've been around in Iceland since the 17th century.

 

Legend has it that you'd be gifted with an endless money supply

if you were to flay a corpse from the waist down and wear the skin --

hair, genitalia and all -- as pants, io9 reports.

Icelandic mystics called them nábrók, or "necropants."

 

Many news outlets are inaccurately reporting that

Strandagaldur, The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft

owns the last pair of necropants. In actuality the museum

has a (terrifying) replica, seen below.


The Strandagaldur website explains the intricate procedure

for fashioning skin pants from a corpse:

 

After he has been buried you must dig up his body and

flay the skin of the corpse in one piece from the waist down.

As soon as you step into the pants they will stick to your own skin.

A coin must be stolen from a poor widow and placed in the scrotum

along with the magical sign, nábrókarstafur, written on a

piece of paper. Consequently the coin will draw money into

the scrotum so it will never be empty,

as long as the original coin is not removed.

To ensure salvation the owner has to convince someone else to

overtake the pants and step into each leg as soon as he gets out of it.

The necropants will thus keep the

money-gathering nature for generations.



Ships use Britney Spears songs to ward off Somali pirates



MOGADISHU, Somalia, Oct. 29 (UPI) --

An international organization of maritime security

companies says the music of Britney Spears has proven

effective in warding off Somali pirates.

A representative from the Security Association for the

Maritime Industry said ships traveling in the Indian Ocean

have found the pirates are repelled by Spears' hit songs

"Oops! I Did It Again" and "Baby One More Time"

as a result of their distaste for western culture, the Nairobi

(Kenya) Standard Digital News, reported Tuesday.

 

The representative said ships blaring the music to ward off

an impending attack found their security workers rarely had to use their guns.

He said the pirates "go to any length to overcome the music."

"I'd imagine using Justin Bieber

would be a great crime against humanity," the representative quipped.



Lightning Strikes Clown Twice On Same Day


A rodeo clown has miraculously survived after being

struck by lightning twice on the same day.

   

Casey Wagner was taking part in a Rednecks with Paychecks

off-road driving event in Saint Jo, Texas, when a storm hit.

   

He sheltered under a tree and was struck by lightning.

   

"What I remember is just a loud boom and it dropped

me to my knees and then it hit me again," he told CBS News.

   

"When I got hit, it was just two big old flashes

and then sparks went everywhere."

   

Mr Wagner said he felt electricity shoot up through

his right boot and into his body.

   

The 31-year-old dropped to his knees when he was struck again.

Mr Wagner was taking part in a Rednecks with Paychecks driving event

   

He was treated by a nurse who was watching the race

and then taken to Nacona General Hospital a few miles away.

   

"At the hospital they said the poncho I was wearing

was carrying static because it was one of those plastic ones," he said.

   

Doctors told him the tingling feeling would last for about a week.

    Mr Wagner says only one thing could have kept him alive.

   

"I give everything to God," he said. "So I owe everything to him,

he's the one that kept me alive. I can tell you one thing,

I'm going to start going to church more."

Tony Caulder Charged With Driving Drunk On Lawn Mower                        




KENNEBUNK, Maine -- KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) —

A Maine man faces drunken driving charges after allegedly

using his riding lawn mower to make a beer run.

Police say convenience store employees turned away 51-year-old

Tony Caulder when he came to the store earlier this month because

they thought he was drunk.

                                                     Officials tell WMTW-TV that (http://bit.ly/17v9jgn )

 

the employees followed the Kennebunk man outside

to make sure he wasn't getting into a car and called police

when he rode off on the lawn mower.

 

Police charged him with operating under the influence

after stopping him a short time later.

Nobody answered at a phone listed in Caulder's name.
