Just call him Lucky

This man was attacked by a bear, shot by his friend who was trying to save him, and he survived! Dude you need to go buy Lotto tickets NOW!

A 56-year-old Canadian man is lucky to be alive today after he was viciously attacked by a bear, then shot by his friend who was trying to neutralize the animal. It was bad enough that the man was attacked by a bear, but then his partner tried to shoot the bear…and put a couple of rounds in him instead! As reported by Vancouver Sun on Oct. 14, the man, identified as Wilf Lloyd, was flown to a hospital after being attacked by the large grizzly bearand he remains hospitalized as of the time of this report.

The man was hunting elk with his son-in-law south of Fernie when he was attacked by a grizzly bear around 9 am Sunday. His son-in-law opened fired on the bear but missed and shot Lloyd a reported two times before he eventually hit and killed the animal.

Conservation officers and emergency crews reported that the man was badly injured during the attack, said David Karn, the Ministry of Environment spokesman. The man was saved because, “during the attack, the victim’s hunting partner shot at the bear, killing the bear,” Karn wrote in an email statement to NBC News.

Again LUCKY!!!!! And, of course, if I were him, I would have worn out God’s ear with thank you by now!

The key to being safe in your home?

Be armed, and sleep naked apparently

A Georgetown, Texas man said that he was awoken Wednesday night by a flashlight moving outside his bedroom door, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

He checked on his sleeping wife, grabbed his 9mm handgun and went to investigate — stark naked.

“I have a tattoo of the grim reaper, my hair is sticking up all crazy and I’m naked,” said the homeowner, who asked that his name be withheld for safety reasons. “I’m not sure if [the burglar] was more afraid of me or the gun.”

Upon seeing the homeowner, the burglar reportedly screamed, stammered, “I’m so sorry, sir,” and leapt headfirst through the first-floor window he had used to enter the home.

Pennsylvania Woman Posed As Doctor To Perform Medical Exams On Truckers

Woman Posed As Doctor To Carry Out Medicals On Men – Bizarre World News

A woman was arrested for posing as a doctor and carrying out physical exams on men in her own home.

.
…………

.
Investigators claim Joann Elizabeth Wingate, 56, advertised her services to truckers who needed to have updated physicals to keep up their commercial driver’s license.

Wingate examined one driver who spotted a sign she posted at a truck wash.

But he got suspicious after being told there was a problem with her forms.

The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” performed a complete exam, and even had him provide her with a urine sample.

Wingate, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, was arrested on charges of forgery, fraud and identity theft. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

State Police officials report that Wingate, who charged $65 for an exam, displayed a bogus medical certificate that contained information corresponding with the license of Dr. Barbara Wingate, a Philadelphia-area psychiatrist.

The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” picked him up in and old car and drove him to her “office.”

He thought it was odd the office was inside her home but ‘Dr. Wingate’ did “everything that a doctor would normally do during a physical.”

Investigators believe at least 16 drivers had physical exams conducted by the bogus doc this year.

During a search of Wingate’s home, police seized items used to conduct physical exams and urine tests and a large quantity of medical documents and advertising brochures.

They also found marijuana and narcotics paraphernalia in her home Wingate is scheduled for a July 16 preliminary hearing.

Japanese Lawmaker Ryutaro Nonomura Loses His Mind During Press Conference (Video)

Japanese Lawmaker Has A Full-Blown Temper Tantrum During A Press Conference – Red Alert Politics

Well, that’s one way to liven up a press conference…

Japanese lawmaker, Ryutaro Nonomura, was the subject of an extremely dramatic discussion on Tuesday when he was asked to answer questions about his bizarre expense reports. Nonomura had visited a nearby hot springs 106 times last year on Japan’s dime, totaling about $30,000.

When Nonomura began to explain himself, things got a little weird. He broke down into hysterical crying, screaming, and table pounding.

“I finally became an assembly member… with the sole purpose of changing society,” Nonomura said between sobs. “I’m putting my life on the line!”

While we might find his antics comical (and a little bit sad), Japanese society places value on stoicism and control, especially when it comes to their politicians.

“Many people are starting to demand that he resign,” said Hideaki Asada, who is a member of Nonomura’s assembly office. “He is usually not that emotional.”

It mostly just sounds like someone needs a nap.

Rep. Frank Lucas Is A Robot Body Double Claims ‘Human’ Primary Challenger Timothy Ray Murray

Oklahoma Congressman Is A Robot Body Double, Claims ‘Human’ Challenger – Washington Post

.

…………………………….Timothy Ray Murray, human

.
The robot takeover has begun, at least according to Timothy Ray Murray, who lost the election for Oklahoma’s 3rd district (obtaining just 5.2 percent of the vote) to incumbent Frank Lucas (R). Murray is now planning to challenge the election results, on the grounds that his opponent has been replaced by a robot body double.

Murray’s Web site notes that “The election for U.S. House for Oklahoma’s 3rd District will be contested by the Candidate, Timothy Ray Murray. I will be stating that his votes are switched with Rep. Lucas votes, because it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike. Rep. Lucas’ look alike was depicted as sentenced on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about Jan. 11, 2011.”

(Lucas told news channel KFOR that he had never in fact been to Ukraine. He also observed: “Many things have been said about me, said to me during course of my campaigns. This is the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a body double or a robot.”)

Murray’s Web site goes on to reassure us that: “I, Timothy Ray Murray, am a human, born in Oklahoma, and obtained and continue to fully meet the requirements to serve as U.S. Representative when honored to so. I will never use a look alike…” This makes me wonder. “I’m definitely a human,” like “I am very suave and good at talking to people,” is the sort of statement that seems untrue the instant you say it.

Denver EPA Email Instructs Staff Not To Defecate In The Hallways After Several Incidents Reported

EPA Appeals To Denver Workers Not To Poop In Hallway – KBTV

.

.
Forget toxic waste dumps, the Environmental Protection Agency apparently has a more immediate cleanup problem in its own backyard: An employee defecating in the hallway.

GovernmentExecutive.com, the government’s business news daily and key website for federal managers and executives, reported Wednesday that the EPA management for Region 8 in Denver sent an e-mail earlier this month to staff pleading to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.

In the e-mail, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor noted “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.

“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals,” Cantor wrote.

According to the e-mail, a consultant was brought in to address the problems.

That email says “the consultant advised us that this is very dangerous behavior as it includes property destruction and a disregard for the health and safety of others.”

The email goes on to say behavior that includes the destruction of property and disregard for human health is classified as attack-related behavior.

EPA spokesman Richard Mylott told Government Executive in a statement that the agency could not comment on “ongoing personnel matters.”

On Thursday morning, the EPA released the following statement:

Mental illness and destructive behavior in the workplace are serious issues that all large organizations must periodically face. EPA’s actions in response to incidents that occurred months ago have been deliberate and have focused on our responsibility to ensure a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects that responsibility.

It’s unclear who defecated in the hallway at the EPA, but 9NEWS Psychologist Dr. Max Wachtel says whoever it is might suffer from some sort of mental illness.

“It can be. It can a symptom of cognitive problems. It can be a symptom of psychosis, and it can be a symptom of substance abuse. Sometimes it’s just an extremely immature person,” Wachtel said.
