Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A real-life "superhero" from Staten Island, N.Y., is patrolling the streets of New York City, looking for costumed crusaders to join his real-life "Justice League."

Chris Pollack, aka Dark Guardian, founded the New York Ronins superhero academy with a successful GoFundMe campaign in 2013 and he said he is now seeking recruits to join in his quest for justice.

"We're going out on the streets to deter crime," Pollack said. "We're looking out for people up to no good, we're getting out wanted flyers, we're just helping anyone we see in need."

Pollack, a marital arts instructor, said his ideal candidate would be "somebody who is actually physically capable, has some self defense skills."

"Of course they have to be street smart and be able to deal with people. We're not looking to get into fights but we are looking to handle situations," he said.

Now he is looking for more heroes to help take to back the streets and help clean up New York City. It's time for the people to stand up and fight back against crime and apathy.

If you're interested, Dark Guardian is advertising a recruiting event on Facebook.

*--------------------- Chubbs? ---------------------*

A Florida man lost his left hand to an alligator after he jumped into a lake to get away from the police following a fight with his mother. You'd think somebody from Florida would know better. Lakeland police said that 21-year-old Jesse Kinsinger, was taken to the Lakeland Regional Health Center, after a 10-foot-long alligator ripped off his left hand while trying to flee from police. According to the police investigation, Kinsinger had an argument with his mother. The mother called the police because she feared that her son, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, is getting out of control. Police searched around the area using a helicopter and dogs. Jesse was found lying on the ground near a lake behind the house with most of his left arm missing. He had multiple surgeries, and is expected to survive.


*------------ Woman Gives Birth at 72 ------------*

India - An Indian couple who are both in their 70s have had their first child after undergoing two years of fertility treatments. Daljinder Kaur, who is believed to be about 72, gave birth to a healthy baby boy at Haryana's National Fertility Center, which is famed for offering fertility treatments to women well past menopause. The baby was fathered by Kaur's husband of 46 years, Mohinder Singh Gill, 79. "Every one asked me to adopt a baby but I never wanted to. Now I have my own child," Kaur said. "We will raise him and give him a proper education." However, some doctors are criticizing the clinic, headed by Dr. Anurag Bishnoi, for giving in-vitro fertilization treatments to a woman of Kaur's advanced years. The current record holder for oldest mother is Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara, who gave birth to twins in Barcelona at the age of 66 in 2006.

He didn't realize he had shot himself till days after when he removed the shirt? wth, DAYS??!!! That's as bizarre as the report itself.

So, Florida man doesn't take his shirts off for days at a time? Is he homeless and living on the street? -Wendy
[No. I think that's pretty normal for Florida.]

About the woman who thought a math equation was a terrorist code…you specified she was a blonde. I know hair color does not indicate intelligence level (I myself am a natural blonde with a 138 IQ and a Masters degree), but she does not help break the "dumb blonde" stereotype. -Chris

Lew, regarding the man who shot himself on Thursday and discovered the wound on Sunday, I think the moral of the story is to change your clothes more than twice a week. I'll wager that the dog is his only companion. -Greg
