I wish I were more talented in the creative way that some of the DIY’ers on Pinterest are. Nonetheless, I found several gorgeous projects easy enough for even yours truly to make! Behold…DOABLE DIY!!
These were emailed to me- if you know who to credit, let me know. Priceless Face Palms from DUMB folks!!
***A criminal who broke into a couple’s house started to take the TV, but instead he turned it on and began to watch. He supposedly liked the program that was on and laid down on the bed. Since it was at night he was tired and fell asleep. So when the couple came home the next day they found him and called the police.
*** A bus carrying five passengers was hit by a car in St. Louis, but by the time police arrived on the scene, fourteen pedestrians had boarded the bus and had begun to complain of whiplash injuries and back pain.
***Athens, Georgia: Demetrius Robinson, 28, wanted to rob a Golden Pantry store late one night, but he needed to pass the time as naturally as possible until he and the clerk were alone, so he decided to fill out a job application. Not a bad idea, except he left his real name on the application, along with his uncle’s phone number. After he robbed the store, it didn’t take long for police to track him down. He didn’t get the job.
***Marysville, California: Arthur Cheney, 64, was arrested after police spotted him driving a car that resembled one used in a local bank robbery. Something told them that they had their man when they noticed a yellow Post-It note on the car’s center console with a handwritten message reading, “Robbery – 100s and 50s only.”
***Boyds, Maryland: While awaiting trial for murder and armed robbery, inmate Quinton Thomas sent a friendly letter to a chum suggesting that he kill any witnesses who were planning to testify against him. He figured he could be so bold because he knew that the prison staff didn’t screen outgoing mail. However, he must’ve sent the letter to the wrong address or affixed the wrong postage, because it was sent back “Return to Sender,” making it INCOMING mail, which IS screened by the staff. He was convicted on three new counts — one of solicitation to commit murder and two of witness intimidation — in addition to the original charges.
Evidently Barcelona will have Polish firm UGO Architecture build them a stunning (and scary)100 meter concept hotel to appeal to the folks who like to live, and sleep, on the edge. Of a faux cliff that is. Conceived as a proposal for the 2011 Bohemian Hostel for Backpackers competition, this tower would allow brave souls to sleep on ledges (harnessed for safety, of course) outside under the stars, like they ere in the wilds, but actually in town. So, instead of stunning natural vistas, they can look at stunning city nightscapes. I think it looks like a cool idea from the concept pics, but since I can’t walk up outside stairs to the second floor or get on a ladder without starting to freeze in panic due to my fear of heights, I don’t think I’d EVER get past the gift shops on the ground floor. What do you think? Would you sleep out on a ledge at a hotel like this?
