ODO 67: This Heat Is Frying Brain Cells


(download mp3)

Summer 2017 has started with a BANG! There’s been record heat waves across the US and Europe. The heat in Phoenix actually left planes grounded at the airport. It looks like the heat may be frying some people’s brain cells a bit as dumb crime seems to be ticking up. From shoplifters at Wal-Mart to hackers at the CIA, nobody is using their brains much right now. This week’s feature goes to a another weird news show I’ve been turned on to, “The Crazy Town Podcast.”

 -B.S. FROM THE NEWS- 

  • Record Heat Wave For Phoenix

This passed week has had at least 4 straight days with temperatures between 115 and 120 degrees. The weather maps actually nearly ran out of colors due to the high temperatures. 

  • Several dozen flights had to be cancelled out of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport because the daily highs were too hot for many planes to fly.

  • Heat Wave In Europe Has Men In Skirts

Nearly 50 boys chose to wear skirts to school because the school dress code does not allow for boys to wear shorts. The prep school uniform does allow girls to wear skirts, and so the boys decided to wear the skirts to protest the injustice of the dress code. Apparently a male member of the school staff arrived wearing a skirt after being sent home for wearing shorts.

  • French Bus Drivers Wear Skirts In Heat Because Shorts Are Banned.

A group of male bus drivers in Nantes, France showed up to work in skirts because company policy does not allow them to wear shorts on hot days. Skirts, on the other hand, are allowed, and the dress code doesn’t specifically state that only women can wear them.

While researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey were making adjustments to their computer records, a computer glitch interpreted the changes as a current threat and sent out a series of automated warnings for a magnitude 6.8 quake. The quake in question actually occurred in June of 1925. A string of automated systems with local news outlets resulted in articles and tweets being generated warning residents of the threat before the USGS could retract the warnings and explain.

-CRIME-

A Fort Worth, TX man was caught shoplifting DVDs from a Wal-Mart by an off-duty police officer dressed as Batman. Among the DVDs was the Lego Batman Movie. After getting a ticket, he asked the “Batman” for a selfie.

The New Hampshire legislature recently amended a law that would have given pregnant women a loophole to commit murder. The law allowed for charges to be brought against anybody causing the death of a fetus over 20 weeks after conception. The wording of a protection for mothers seeking abortions kept pregnant mothers from being charged with murder, but didn’t explicitly state that it was of the fetus. This technically meant a pregnant woman could murder somebody and not be charged with anything. The amended law added in a line specifying the murder of the fetus.

A group of CIA contractors were fired after it was discovered that they had hacked the agency vending machines and gotten away with over $3000 in free snacks over a 6 month period.

Australian authorities are looking for a 26 year old man after friends reported that he was dragged underwater by a crocodile. The friends claimed that he had been on a binge of  “Ice” and was trying to have sex with the croc when it grabbed him. 

     -JACKASS OF THE WEEK- 

     White German Woman Now “Black” After Chemical Tanning

    Model, Martina Big, who has become “famous” for her extreme breast implants, is now turning herself “black” by way of chemical tanning. She receives hormone injections which increase her body’s production of melanin and give her a darker complexion. Although she doesn’t claim to want to identify as being a black person, she does want to get natural black afro hair extensions and surgery to change her nose and lips to more black features.
