         BIZARRE NEWS - Wednesday, July 30, 2008
 "Spanning the globe for the weird...strange...and stupid."

Greetings fellow Bizarros:

There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. 

First you have a guy in Bonita Springs, Florida who was 
pinched stealing change from a fountain in a shopping 

43-year-old Laslo Mujzer was charged with petty theft 
after a shopper at the Coastland Center mall reported him 
for allegedly taking change from an outdoor fountain. 

The money in the fountain is intended for the Habitat for 
Humanity of Collier County, but apparently Laslo didn't 
have quite enough for his morning latte. 

Then you have Craig Davidson of Phoenix, Arizona. For the 
last 25 years Craig has taken a morning run just for the 
exercise, but he's never so focused on his run that he 
doesn't stop to pick up loose change on the street. 

Since 1983 his morning constitutional has earned him, in 
addition to a healthy heart, $8,100 in free money. That 
might not sound like much, but Davidson says he has paid 
for a Hawaiian vacation for himself and his wife with 
money others overlooked.

+--------------- Bizarre Historical Trivia ----------------+

100 years ago....

Only 14 percent of the homes in the United States had a 

There were only 8,000 cars in the US and only 144 miles of 
paved roads.

Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, and Tennessee were each more 
heavily populated than California. With a mere 1.4 million 
residents, California was only the twenty-first most 
populous state in the Union.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

The average wage in the U.S. was twenty-two cents an hour. 
The average U.S. worker made between $200 and $400 per 

Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a 
dozen. Coffee cost fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month and used 
borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Drive-by-shootings - in which teenage boys galloped down 
the street on horses and started randomly shooting at 
houses, carriages, or anything else that caught their 
fancy - were an ongoing problem in Denver and other 
cities in the West.

Plutonium, insulin, and antibiotics hadn't been discovered 
yet. Scotch tape, crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced 
tea hadn't been invented.

Some medical authorities warned that professional seam-
stresses were apt to become sexually aroused by the 
steady rhythm of the sewing machine's foot pedals. They 
recommended slipping bromide - which was thought to 
diminish sexual desire - into the woman's drinking water.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the 
counter at corner drugstores.  According to one pharmacist, 
"Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, 
regulates the stomach and the bowels, and is, in fact, a 
perfect guardian of health."

Coca-Cola contained cocaine instead of caffeine.

There were about 230 reported murders in the U.S. annually.


-------- Mom's postcards on the way 26 years late --------

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - An Anchorage, Alaska, woman who 
received a couple's postcards to their son 26 years after 
they were sent said they've been forwarded to the intended 
recipient. Teresa Childs said she was contacted by James 
Jigliotti, 54, shortly after media reports of the post-
cards, which Olga Jigliotti mailed to her then 29-year-old 
son's Anchorage address while she and her husband, John, 
visited Italy, the Anchorage Daily News reported. James 
Jigliotti, now of Atlanta, said he is more likely to 
treasure the items now than when he was supposed to 
receive them in March 1982. Olga Jigliotti died March 22, 
2007, and John Jigliotti died March 23, 2008. "You can 
never have enough of that stuff," James Jigliotti said 
Sunday. "It trickles away, more or less."

-------- German nudists complain of Polish peepers ---------

BERLIN - Patrons of a German nude beach on the Polish 
border say beachgoers on the other side of the border 
come to stare at the exposed skin. Ines Muller, a German 
naturist, said Poles come fully clothed to the beach on 
their side of the border and stare at the nude swimmers 
and sunbathers, The Sun reported Monday. "You feel like 
an ape in the zoo. The Poles come with their binoculars, 
stare and swear," Muller said. Beach patrons said there 
used to be a fence separating the German and Polish 
beaches, but it was torn down as part of a 2007 agreement 
between the countries. "It's a nudist beach. It's terrible 
that the Poles come over dressed and stare," said German 
Elke Bernholz. Some Poles said the proximity of the two
beaches annoys them as much as it does the Germans. "It's 
horrible -- we would never bathe naked, we are Catholic," 
said one beach-going Pole from the town of Swinemunde. 

-------- Man, 80, reprimanded for escalator run --------

FARNHAM, England - An 80-year-old former Olympic hurdler 
said a Farnham, England, store has threatened to ban him 
if he is caught running up a down escalator again. Peter 
Hildreth, who represented Britain at the Olympics in 1952, 
1956 and 1960, said he used to train for his sport by 
running up the wrong escalators, and decided to try out 
his old training regime as his 80th birthday approached, 
The Daily Mail reported. "I started doing it last month 
because I was turning 80. People did not see me do it to 
start with, I must have done it three or four times," he 
said. Hildreth said he was finally caught by the head of 
the women's underwear department at the top of the 
escalator and was given a stern talking-to by store 
manager Graham Duerden, who said the elderly man was 
violating health and safety rules and setting a bad 
example for young people. The former athlete said he has 
had his fill of his old pastime. "I am not going to do 
it anymore," Hildreth said. "My wife will be annoyed 
about me doing it, she does not know until now." 


Retail Price: $39.99

These classic and always popular Wayfarer style sunglasses 
have never been more affordable. At $3.99 you'll want to 
stock up. Get them in Black or White.

They are perfect for the beach or any activity. It's the 
Wayfarer Style... your probably more familiar with it if 
I say Tom Cruise in Risky Business, The Blues Brothers, 
Will Smith, etc...

Sunglass styles come and go but this style remains popular 
and stylish. Two reasons for this:

1. Rugged and built to last. You won't have to worry about
anything flimsy or breaking off on these.

2. The lens color is very dark. It's so hard to find a real
dark pair of glasses anymore.

Drop them, toss them... they can take it! These will last 
you a long, long time. To grab a pair or two, visit:

------- Gallery owner cuffed because of nude man -------

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The owner of a Florida art gallery 
is facing charges for allegedly breaking city laws by 
having a nude man inside his gallery while alcohol was 
being served. Gallery owner Bill Schramm 46, and model, 
Joshua M. Culotta, 26, were taken into police custody 
Friday at the Erotic Lounge in St. Petersburg, Fla., the 
St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported. The incident began 
when police showed up after getting a complaint about a 
large penis sculpture outside the gallery, the newspaper 
said. The Times said police went back to the gallery later 
in the night and raided the building. Officials said they 
found Culotta inside the building, hanging in an aerial 
harness from the ceiling with his genitals exposed. 
Schramm and Culotta were taken into police custody and 
Schramm is facing charges of battery on a law enforcement 
officer and violating the city ordinance, the Times said. 
Sgt. Joe Collins said police are allowed to enter a 
building with a liquor license without probable cause.

Lewis, I have a solution that can help our hurting airlines. 
First,  fire all male and female flight attendants. They no 
longer serve food or drinks on flights so they are useless. 
Instead, hire strippers to serve the business men of the 
world drinks. We wouldn't have to pay them because they 
would earn plenty  in tips.  We would charge them a ten or 
twenty percent fee just for working the planes. The guys 
will be eager to fly again for the show and drinks. This 
in turn would boost travel sales and would save the airline 
industry. Why do I always have to think of everything? 
 -Sincerely,  Bill Clinton
[I thought I had deleted you from the list!]

Lewis, Phronemophobia, that's what my ex-wife suffered from! 
Thank you for putting a name to it. -Terry
[Are you sure it wasn't just a need for sexual satisfaction?]

I just got to reading the July 5th edition titled,  "What do 
you do with an idiot?"    Well, lots of people elected him 
President twice! -Pat

What do you mean "if global warming is real."?  It has been 
going on for 10,000 years, since the end of the last great 
ice age.  Most of the United States was covered in ice at 
one time.  Now some scientist studying sun spots think we 
may be entering a new ice age.  It irritates me that some 
people say mankind is at fault, I guess the cavemen built 
their cook fires to high and started the cycle. -Russell
[Well, Ice Age or global warming...the global population 
is going to take quite a dip (number-wise) if and when the 
climate changes dramatically.]
