Greetings fellow Bizarros:
In a bizarre and tragic accident a Russian man was killed by his bathroom.
Occasionally you will hear stories about people going to the hospital to have bizarre things removed from their bodies. Usually those object have to be removed from one end in particular. Unfortunately, in this story the object had to be removed from the other end.
The 60-year-old man in question apparently slipped in his bathroom and fell on a toilet brush, which was lodged in his skull through his eye socket.
The man was taken to a hospital near the Russian capital Moscow with the blood-soaked brush still jammed in his head.
Surgeons had to open the man's skull in an attempt to remove the handle which was embedded in his head through his right eye. The toilet brush was cut off immediately above the eye of the patient but it was not possible to remove the handle. Surgeons decided to open the skull and remove first the broken bones and then the handle of the toilet brush.
At first the surgery appeared to be successful, but the patient remained in a coma. Unfortunately his condition deteriorated and he died days later.
I don't know about anybody else, but I am going home and moving the toilet brush out of my bathroom tonight.

*------ A Short Swim To The Train Station ------*
The Swedes don't like to waste opportunities. When a heavy storm flooded a train station some of the local residents turned the platforms into a makeshift water park. Several people posted pictures on social media of bathers bobbing along the submerged tracks on inflatables while wearing flippers and swim masks. Some people questioned the safety of the operation, remarking that bathers could possibly be at risk or disease or of being electrocuted. But another described the bathers as "absolute legends". Unfortunately the party ended pretty quickly, with the emergency services hastily pumping the water from the station and returning it to normal.
Arkansas Man Tried to Steal Jet To Go To Concert
Police say an Arkansas man accused of trying to steal a commercial jet told investigators he thought piloting the plane would involve little more than pushing buttons and pulling levers. Investigators say 18-year-old Zemarcuis Devon Scott wanted to fly to an out-of-state concert when he hopped inside an American Eagle jet at Texarkana Regional Airport. The Texarkana Gazette reports Scott was inside the cockpit when he was arrested early on July 4. He was charged and remained jailed Thursday on commercial burglary and attempted theft of property charges. It was not reported what group Scott thought it was worth stealing a jet to go see.

"Patterson's attorney asked the judge to allow the jury to see his client's manhood, but the judge declined. [That would have been a first in American jurisprudence.]"
I actually attended the trial of a police chief accused of licking an pep in the nads. The jury was shown pictures of those nads (and the accompanying attachment) in order to prove that the perp did indeed possess the things he allegedly was kicked in.
Why would no one eat those steaks? they're wrapped in plastic & styrofoam. Unless there's holes, no meat touched his..erm...meat. No reason to throw out perfectly good steak! -psychobandit
