Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A motorcyclist who crashed into the back of a car on a Washington state highway had a lucky escape from injury when he ended up sitting on the car's trunk.
Brian Becton posted a dashboard camera video to YouTube showing the scene that unfolded. The video shows a car traveling at a high rate of speed quickly brake when it approaches the rear of a slower-moving vehicle.
A motorcycle traveling behind the car has trouble braking fast enough to avoid impact and the two vehicles collide, leaving the motorcyclist sitting on the trunk of the car.
The car's driver doesn't appear to initially notice the crash, causing the man sitting on the trunk to knock forcefully on the rear window.
The car pulls over a distance down the road and the motorcyclist is eventually seen pacing at the side of the road -- visibly upset, but free from serious injuries.

*-- Probably a Smart Call on the Relationship --*
A woman flew into a rage after her boyfriend told her that he was not ready to commit to a serious relationship with her, according to police in Michigan. Roseville police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Batina Christine Jackson, after being accused of stabbing her 39-year-old boyfriend 9 times. According to the criminal complaint, Jackson recently met her boyfriend on the Internet, and they went out on two dates. After the second date, Jackson asked her boyfriend, who was not identified, whether he was ready to commit to a serious relationship. When he said it was too early to decide, Jackson pulled a knife and stabbed him in the back and neck 9 times. The man was rushed to the hospital where he is expected to survive.
*--------------- Talk About Luck ---------------*
A California man whose two vehicles were both crushed by trees in different cities on the same day says he feels like "the luckiest guy." Georgiy Karpekin said he was at Sacramento City College when strong winds swept over the area leading to an unfortunate discovery in the parking lot. "I walked up to my truck and I saw it was 'taco'd' around a tree," he said. Karpekin got a ride to his West Sacramento home where he made another shocking discovery -- another tree had fallen on two vehicles parked in front of his house, including his own car. Karpekin said. "I feel like I'm the luckiest guy. Why? I came out alive. Everything is fine. My insurance is covering it. There's no other way to look at it, right?"

Seriously though (and please, PLEASE let me be the first to point out that) this poster misspelled 'he4ard'. So let me be the first one to laugh at myself about that. Does it really make sense to have so many freaking laws that no one could EVER keep track of them all? Do you know how many laws I have already broken just by asking this question? Because I don't.
[I never correct typos and I rarely correct bad grammar and spelling (because do it too much myself), but as for breaking any laws by posing these kinds of questions in a public forum, only the NSA really knows.]
s a Libertarian would say. If it isn't obvious something should be criminal and it doesn't affect anyone, maybe it shouldn't be criminal. 4,500 criminal offices seems like a ludicrous amount of over regulation. 300,000 possible offices that might be a problem depending on how a judge interprets them is even more insane.
What a world record to have! Smashing coconuts, drink cans, & walnuts using your head. My Mom always said when I was a kid, Use your head once in a while. I guess he listened to Mom. -Buzzy
Lewis I thought you got one phone call when you get arrested? If this guy did who did he call or was he embarrassed that he was arrested for exposing himself?
