It seemed like the perfect car crime.

A smartly dressed man in an expensive looking suit strolls into a classy car dealership in Penang, Malaysia

He’s acting pretty cool, a little too cool. He could almost be Nicolas Cage Gone in 60 Seconds cool, almost.

In fact, by the sounds of it this guy actually thought he was Nicolas Cage in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds. Randall ‘Memphis’ Raines was the character.

He’s soon met on the showroom floor by an unsuspecting saleswoman and soon he has got his eye on a brand new, shiny black Porsche.

Malaysian Newspaper The Star reports:

Flashing a cheque book, a smartly-dressed man coolly asked for the keys to a sports car at a showroom here yesterday. 

He got into the RM963,000 Porsche 911 Targa 4, started the engine, and to the horror of the salespersons there, crashed the car through the showroom’s glass pane and drove off at top speed. 

But he had not factored in one thing – fuel. The car ran out of petrol just 2km away and police found the car within 30 minutes at Hujung Perusahaan Dua in Prai.  

A salesgirl, who declined to be named, said the man, who wore a suit, came into the showroom at about 1.50pm, holding a cheque book as he viewed the car.  

“He then asked for the keys to start the engine. Before I knew it, he drove the car through the glass pane and sped off,” she said.  

Wow! Almost had it buddy. $280,000 US dollars worth of machine could have been all yours.

But, wait a minute!

The story doesn’t just end there folks.

According to The New Straits Times our car thief was so dam cool, he decided to try again.

When local police found the car ditched, they took it back to the local district headquarters for safe keeping.

But what a shock it would be when it was discovered that the thief had kept the keys, organised himself a canister of petrol, somehow snuck into the police headquarters, and managed to start her up.

He even got the car to the edge of the HQ perimeter, only being spotted as he pulled out onto the roadway.

However, the thief was not second time lucky.

Roadblocks were somehow hastily set up and police believe the thief had himself a case of cold feet.

The 911Targa 4 was quickly recovered and put under lock and key, this time with sufficient security.

Investigators have managed to get their hands on a photo of the tenacious thief, who is still at large.

Amazing!

Nightmare: Man discovers fly larvae living inside his head!

Hope you haven’t finished a large meal recently.

Crazy things happen in 2’s.

A day after we found out about that rugby player who discovered his opponents tooth embedded into his forehead, a much more stomach curdling story along similar lines has emerged.

Look away now if you fell squeamish at the mere thought of an infestation of fly larvae INSIDE YOUR HEAD! Oh wait, I just told you right there.

Eeeep!

Yes that’s right.

According to media reports:

A man in the United States who had recently been on a trip to the Central American nation of Belize discovered five active bot fly larvae living near the top of his skull, which were living in a 2mm to 3mm-wide pit under his skin.

“I’d put my hand back there and feel them moving. I thought it was blood coursing through my head”

“I could hear them. I actually thought I was going crazy.”

Aaron Dallas from Colorado was initially told that he was suffering from the shingles, but after a continuation of unusual feelings within his head, he went back for a further examination, and his doctor Kimball Spence made the spine shivering discovery.

“It was pretty obvious that something was going on”.

“There was an open pit. You could see a little activity, not necessarily the larvae, but a fluctuation of the fluid in the pit,” Dr Spence told media.

Yipes! watch a man have a South American bot fly removed from his back!

Just imagine having those living in your skull…

As most people in the Northern Hemisphere fry in the heat, it’s quite the opposite where I am, Down Under way.

Australia’s most highly populated area, the south east where cities like Melbourne and Sydney lie, is experiencing some of the coldest weather on record.

Sydneysiders woke up to their coldest July morning in 21 years.

Meanwhile to the south of Sydney, in the state of Victoria, roads were closed due to freezing and the city of Melbourne was hammered with high winds.

Kazakhstan’s favourite son delighted commentators, TV viewers and cyclists alike yesterday during le Tour de France.

Sporting his famous mankini, the world famous Borat was seen running up a steep hill attempting to keep up with the peloton with all his might.

Very Nice!

Update 2:
Well, well. The drama and excitement and general craziness of Le Tour continued yesterday. This time TV news bulletins the world over were carrying pictures of mans best friend being ploughed into by a rider.

What was that French dog doing on the course? We may never know.
