Subscibe to DEAL OF THE DAY

Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Perfect GiftImagine the opening scene of Indiana Jones where Indi is running through the jungle and dozens of primitive natives are chasing him and shooting arrows at him. This story is just like that, except unfortunately for the main character, his story doesn't turn out so well.

27-year-old American John Chau was a tourist in India. He was fascinated with the remote Andaman islands and had tried several times to get there. But travel to the islands is legally restricted in order to protect a small tribe of natives who live a very primitive lifestyle there, and shun all contact with the outside world. But John was persistant and eventually was able to bribe a local fishermen to take him there.

The remote North Sentinel Island where the indigenous people live is cut off completely from the outside world. It is out of bounds even to the Indian navy in a bid to protect its reclusive inhabitants. But John Chau was determined to visit there.

Even after he found a fisherman to take him to the island, the fishermen would not take him all the way. So John had to finish his journey alone in a canoe.

Those first steps must have been very exciting for John, but for the natives it was more of an invasion than a friendly visit. As soon as he set foot on the island, Chau found himself facing a flurry of arrows. The fisherman who brought to the island saw what happened. He said that despite the arrows he continued walking, but eventually they brought him down.

A fellow traveler who had known Chau reported that he wanted to go to the Andaman Islands to spread the word of God. I guess the locals did not want to be converted. Now the police have been forced to register a case of murder and seven accused persons have been arrested.

I wonder how they will deal with a modern court system?

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Attempted Gas Thief Sets Own Pants on Fire

Security cameras outside an Oregon store were recording when a man attempting to siphon gas from a U-Haul truck lit his own pants on fire. Portland Fire & Rescue investigators said the U-Haul truck and a van were found engulfed in flames about 7 a.m. Monday and security camera footage from a nearby store recorded a man fleeing the scene with his pants on fire. Investigators said they determined the man had been trying to use tubes to steal gas from the U-Haul truck when the fuel apparently ignited. "Something ignited that gasoline caught fire. We don't believe this is what the individual intended," Lt. Rich Chatman of Portland Fire & Rescue said.

Sex Sells, Real Estate?

A Texas real estate agent who hired a pair of fitness models to pose in their underwear said the pictures succeeded in drawing attention to her listing. Kristin Gyldenege said she had to get creative when the listing for the Conroe home failed to get any traction online. "Because we weren't getting any traffic. We needed to do something that was out there, and really pushing the envelope," she said. Gyldenege had a pair of fitness models pose in their underwear in several different areas of the house. The photos were removed by the Houston Association of Realtors, but not before the listing went viral. Gyldenege, who still has some of the photos on her Instagram page, said there's no such thing as bad publicity. She said there haven't been any offers yet, but the listing is finally drawing attention. "We had six showings yesterday."

If it is the same forklift video I saw on catastrophic failures, the driver was killed. It happened in a grocery warehouse.


There are already sex toys that simulate oral sex for women. And there are male sex robots, at least in Japan. Whether or not they are equipped for oral sex, I can't say. -Chris


Lewis, Thanks for starting my day with a smile, well, twice a week anyway. Hope you and your family have a great holiday. Try to steer clear of the ones who mix revelry with driving and of course the Black Friday knuckleheads. Best, Diane
