Several levels? Looks like a single storey house 🤔

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Although it was a sex party, I didn't expect anybody to rifle through my drawers...

Man Dies During Taco Eating Contest

A new Darwin Award recipient:

Taco Tuesday ended in tragedy at a minor league baseball game in California. A man taking part in a taco-eating contest at a Fresno Grizzlies game collapsed seven minutes into the competition and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The coroner's office says 41-year-old Dana Hutchings apparently choked to death. Grizzlies fan Matthew Boylan tells the Fresno Bee that Hutchings stood out because "he was eating so fast compared to the other two." "It was like he'd never eaten before," Boylan says.

"He was just shoving the tacos down his mouth without chewing." Fresno Grizzlies spokesman Paul Braverman says the team was "devastated" to hear of the death, the AP reports. The team says the World Taco Eating Championship, scheduled to take place during the annual Taco Truck Throwdown Saturday, has been called off.

A 19-yr old who had been to visit a friend took his usual short cut over the crash barriers on the A14 in Suffolk.

He was hit by at least 3 vehicles including a police car and an ambulance.

He had been drinking.

Thanks Nutty - sorted. Indeed, think he must have heard of reflector sights on aircraft...

Did the local MP really know what had caused this accidental discharge of an unlawful weapon before he gave his statement?

A group of guys were sitting in a car by the [Lloyds] bank and a big guy came up to them with a shotgun. ‘They all got out of the car and ran so the guy decided to damage the car with the back of the gun. ‘As he was hitting the windows the gun went off and he shot himself

Holds shotgun by barrel while hitting victim's car, totally surprised when it went "bang" and he died. No loss to society at all, sad that he missed his mate.

So they like to fire guns at weddings in Turkey. How about keeping a safe distance away? Possibly disturbing video:
