Subscibe to DEAL OF THE DAY

Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Has anybody ever heard of the Tunguska Event? This is one of the oldest mysteries in the modern world, and it just past its one hundredth birthday.

It occurred on this date in 1908 over an isolated area in Siberia known as Tunguska. The aftermath of this event was so catastrophic that an entire forest encompassing hundreds of square miles, tens of thousands of trees and entire herds of animals was instantly destroyed. Tremors were felt for hundreds of miles and an anomalous glow in the sky was observed as late as 10 days afterwards from as far away as England on the other side of the continent!

But what was the event? An explosion? Certainly. Caused by what nobody is exactly certain. But one man has a new and controversial theory.

Dr. Yuri Labvin, president of the Tunguska Spatial Phenomenon Foundation, insists that an alien spacecraft sacrificed itself to prevent a gigantic meteor from slamming into the planet above Siberia.

Most scientists think the blast was caused by a meteorite exploding several miles above the surface. But Labvin thinks quartz slabs with strange markings found at the site are remnants of an alien control panel, which fell to the ground after the UFO slammed into the giant rock.

"We don't have any technologies that can print such kind of drawings on crystals," Labvin told the Macedonian Inter-national News Agency. "We also found ferrum silicate that can not be produced anywhere, except in space."

On the surface it sounds bizarre, but no more off-the-wall than some of the other theories which have been put forward including that it was not a comet at all but an object of an antimatter nature or even a miniature black hole which suddenly appeared in space immediately above the earth.

That sounds plausible.

If you're interested there are plenty of photographs of the destruction to be found on the Internet. Just search Tunguska Event. And with that brewing in your brains let's get on with some more current bizarre stories.

*--------- Fool Me Once, Fool Me Twice ---------*

A bank robber who was desperate for cash was fooled into getting himself caught. Police in Ohio said that a quick-thinking bank teller convinced an armed robber to hand over his driver's license. The man entered a Huntington Bank in Columbus and gave a note to the teller, saying he was armed, demanding money. The woman gave the suspect a stack of cash, but he was not happy. He wanted more. The suspect asked the bank teller to open the teller cash recycler and hand over the money. The bank teller told the suspect that the machine needed a driver's license to dispense cash. The suspect complied and handed over his own driver's license. After the man left, the bank teller called the police and handed over the license. Police arrested 51-year-old David Menser. He was charged with aggravated robbery and threats with a deadly weapon.


*----- Hot Hobby Leaves Man With Hot Foot ------*

A Wisconsin man who apparently didn't know he can get free pictures of naked women on the Internet suffered burns and an injury to his foot when a camera he was using to shoot videos up women's skirts exploded. He was testing the camera at home when it flared up, preventing him from obtaining any illicit footage. The 32-year-ol man decided to turn himself into police after conferring with a clergyman about what had happened. "He said he had purchased a shoe camera that he intended to use to take upskirt videos of females, but the camera battery exploded prior to obtaining any video," police chief Mike Koval wrote in his daily report. He wasn't arrested because he hadn't taken any videos, according to police.

Mears should also have been charged with rape. It's not fair she gets away without that charge just because she's a woman.

Lewis, you left out an important part of the "Pop Cop" story. The cop and his daughter are white. The boyfriend is black.
[So what? I think it's actually a little racist pointing that out. Maybe the dad hated the boyfriend because he is a dropout, or a liberal arts major, or a Catholic. Why do you automatically assume it's because he's black?]
