Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A 10-year-old boy is accused of stealing his mother’s car from their Cleveland home on Hadley Avenue and leading police on a high-speed chase. Authorities say the chase itself began in Westlake and ended at mile marker 121 on the Ohio Turnpike, which is near Sandusky.

At times, the boy drove at speeds up to 100 mph along the Turnpike, according to Highway Patrol Lt. Richard Reeder of the Milan post.

After making eye contact with the boy during the chase, a trooper signaled him to pull over. The boy shook his head no, according to authorities.

After going off the side of the roadway, a cruiser crashed into the vehicle and brought the chase to an end as the boy tried to reenter the Turnpike.

The boy was combative after the chase concluded, allegedly spitting and kicking at authorities. Cleveland police say this is the "second incident" involving the same child.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Giant Glowing Ball Definitely Not UFO - Probably

Russia has been hit by a wave of reports of a giant UFO in the night sky with spectacular pictures of an enormous glowing ball illuminating northern Siberia. The extraordinary scene, which was almost certainly NOT a portal to an alternate dimension created by a secret government experiment, was captured by photographer Sergey Anisimov in the town of Salekhard which straddles the Arctic Circle. "My first thought was about a powerful searchlight, but the speed of changing everything around changed the idea of what was happening," said Anisimov. "The ball began to turn into an arc and gradually dissipated." While the source of the light has not been confirmed, some have suggested that it was the trace of four rockets launched by the Russian military that caused this extraordinary phenomenon in the night sky. That, or alien death ray technology.

Woman Celebrates 94th Birthday Skydiving --*

A great-grandmother in Pennsylvania celebrated her 94th birthday by crossing skydiving off of her bucket list. Eila Campbell of Williamsport decided to take the 10,000-foot plunge because she might not "make it for another year." Campbell was joined by her granddaughter, Sara Schuelke, and great-granddaughter Jess Fox for the dive over Hazleton. "This was her bucket list and there was no way I was missing the most incredible matriarch jumping for one of the greatest families," Schuelke said. "I wasn't going to miss it." Campbell was thrilled by the experience and said said it won't be her last time skydiving. "The free fall is kind of a 'wow.' The wind is so terrific. It was great and I loved it. I'll do it again," she said.

I've ordered a lot of stuff from Amazon, but generally I only get what I ordered. I've never found marijuana inside any of it. Not that I would use it even if I did. -Chris


I am still scratching my head about that phrenology degree comment. Keep scratching. Eventually you'll hit something.


With all of this sexual harassment stuff in the news lately, I find it hard to believe that some stranger can stand on a street corner and accost random women for intimate contact like that. That's GOT to be against the law, wouldn't you think?


About that guy in New York City socking that lady for refusing a free hug, you need to change your motto to "Hugs, Not Slugs". --Bruno
