Smile Golfer Destroys Whole Airforce

Rick Cato tells the story of Mathieu Boya. Boya was practicing his golf swing in a pasture adjacent to Africa’s Benin Air Base. With one swing of the golf club, Boya set off an unbelievable series of events. The shot, described as "a glorious slice," hit a bird, which in turn dropped onto the windshield of a trainer jet whose pilot was taxiing into position for take off. The pilot lost control of his plane and ploughed into four shiny Mirage jets, totally demolishing the entire air force of Benin. Boya was jailed immediately for "hooliganism," and his attorney said he had no chance of winning a trial. The country wanted Boya to pay $40 million to replace the jets. Since Boya made only $275 per year, he figured it would take 145,000 years to pay off his debt to society.


Ja, poor guy, imagine his hell trying to get out of that African thinking conundrum.

Wow, I go on a 2 week holiday, then Benin gets a whole airforce of jets and gets it destroyed within the same time period. 2 weeks ago it only had 2 HS-748's....Amazing what happens when you go on leave. Will have to check that one out on Monday when I get to Cotonou.....
