Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Parkour is for athletic people who aren't good enough to be gymnasts. Maybe that's why the running and jumping enthusiast in this story had a tough time recognizing a convenient cable for the threat it was.

The incident happened in downtown West Palm Beach. Police said the unidentified man, along with two other people, scaled a building with intentions to train for parkour.

The three subjects climbed a metal pipe at the rear of the building and gained access to the roof. They then walked along the rooftop until they came to what turned out to be a power pole.

The victim attempted to walk on the pole when he touched a live wire and immediately received over 7,000 volts of electricity through his body.

The two accompanying him told police there was "an explosion and a white light."

The two subjects climbed down off the building and found the victim in an alley where, incredibly, he was alive and breathing but unresponsive.

*---- Clothed Rifleman Beats Naked Swordsman ----*

Police in Nebraska are looking for a man who exposed himself to another man while wielding a sword. The second man, 26, told police he was sitting in his car about 4:30 a.m. after walking his dog, when a naked man approached him with a sword. The naked man tapped the driver's side window with the sword, and the 26-year-old grabbed his rifle from the vehicle, chasing the man into a wooded area nearby, Lincoln Police Officer Angela Sands said. Police have only a generic description of the naked man.


* Girl Takes Graduation Photo with 14-foot Gator *

A student preparing to graduate from a Texas university incorporated a nearly 14-foot alligator named Big Tex into her graduation photos. Makenzie Alexis Noland, 21, who is graduating next week from Texas A&M University in College Station, held her graduation photo shoot at Gator County, an alligator sanctuary where Noland has been interning since May. One of the photos shows Noland placing her class ring on the snout of a 13-foot, 8-inch gator named Big Tex. "He's one of my best friends here," Noland said. Noland said she is hoping to use her Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences degree to get a job at a zoo.

Was the concert the guy tried to steal a jet to go see Jefferson Airplane?
