Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Liability or discrimination? It's a tough choice. But if you had to choose one, which one would it be? Heart of Worcestershire College in England chose discrimination, and the person they discriminated against doesn't like it. But what could they do? It's not like they could let a dwarf run around a working kitchen.
Eighteen-year-old Louis Makepeace is 3ft 10ins tall and says his height is the reason why his college banned him from a cooking course.
The student, who has achondroplasia, a form of short-limbed dwarfism, believes that he is being discriminated against 'because of his height', and that's the reason he has been refused a place at Heart of Worcestershire College.
Senior staff, he said, called him a 'safety risk' to the other 14 students and would cause a 'disruption' if he got under their feet. The teenager fears that his dreams of becoming a chef are over because of the 'humiliating' ordeal.
Makepeace said, "It was really upsetting as I had my heart set on this course. They are simply not prepared to make the necessary adjustments to accommodate me such as making the surfaces lower. They said I would be a health and safety risk and disruption to the other students and get in their way, which was really humiliating."

*----- Is It Just Me, Or Is This Guy Nuts? -----*
Guinness World Records shared video of a man cracking 217 walnuts with his head in one minute to break a record. The video shows S. Navin Kumar using just his head to break the shells of 217 walnuts arranged on a long table. The footage shows Kumar holding his hands behind his back as he side-steps next to the table and cracks the nuts one at a time with his cranium. Guinness said Kumar broke the world record for most walnuts cracked against the head by 36 walnuts.
*---------- Who Steals 7,000 Spiders? ----------*
A six-eyed sand spider is among 7,000 live creatures stolen from the Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion. Surveillance video shows several suspects loading plastic containers into a car in broad daylight outside the insectarium before driving away, taking more than $40,000 worth of critters with them. Bizarrely, they left behind blue staff uniforms, which were impaled on a wall with steak knives. A Mexican fireleg tarantula was also stolen, but has since been recovered.

The article didn't state if Canada offered the American Illegal Aliens health care, free education, or a chance to vote in their politics. Imagine that, eh?
LEWIS; Perhaps just as battle-bots is a humane legal alternative to those to-the-death cock fights and dog fights a robotic sex-doll brothel bizarre as it sounds could be a safer alternative to human prostitution. Still as the song goes ain't nothing like the real thing. Of course I can just hear the wife who learns that her husband was there yelling "You want supper? Get your sex bot to cook supper for you!" -R.S.
