Gold-Eating Fish

A Hawaii resident of ELEELE, tells a very weird fish tale: A reef fish measuring only 10 inches was caught by hand in shallow waters by Curt Carish, and the fish hours later coughed out a still ticking gold watch.

The story goes like this: Curt said he was enjoying a picnic on Port Allen beach when he saw a fish awkwardly swimming close to the shore´s shallow waters. His friend gave him a bamboo stick and told him to get the fish to see what was wrong. Curt went into the waist-high water and hit the fish until it fainted.

When Curt caught it he was surprised to notice that the fish´s belly was unusually large, so he decided to toss it into a cooler. Some hours later he was even more surprised when a gold watch appeared next to its mouth. Apparently the fish coughed up the watch while it was in the cooler. Carish said the watch was still ticking and keeping correct time.

French Spiderman, Alain Robert

Maybe you´ve seen a French dude climbing skyscrapers on TV, or maybe even live. If not, let me introduce you to Alain Robert, commonly known as “the French Spider-Man.”

He is known for climbing skyscrapers and buildings with his bare hands and climbing shoes. This crazy guy has scaled approximately 85 giant structures around the globe including many of the tallest ones

Authorities normally don´t give him permission to climb the buildings, so many times he does it illegally. He has been arrested many times in various countries, and he was even exiled from China in 2007 by climbing the 88-story Jin Mao Building in Shanghai.

His “job” normally attracts thousands of people who watch him climb. His arrests and trials are normally little more than brief formalities, and he is always discharged with nothing more than a small fine. Some companies that own tall buildings hire him to climb theirs for publicity. He was even paid $18,000 to climb the Lloyd´s of London to promote the premiere of the movie Spider-Man on the British television channel Sky Movies. Alain has climbed towers and skyscrapers from almost every part of the world. He also is a strong promoter of the awareness of global warming.

He wrote an autobiography titled “With Bare Hands” and was first published in English in 2008. It shows his development into a famous urban climber from his days as a child and gives a deep insight into his philosophy and how he managed to overcome his disabilities.

Some of his famous climbs are:

The Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois in 1999.

The National Bank of Abu Dhabi (200 meters tall) on February, 2003.

The Federation Tower office building in Moscow (244 meters tall) on September 4, 2007.

The Lloyd´s building during a G-20 London Summit on April 2, 2009.

Memorial day thief

Every Memorial Day, people who volunteer place USA flags next to the graves of veterans buried at Mount Hope Cemetery, which is 55 miles northeast from Detroit. It has been reported that workers at the cemetery noticed several flags that had been torn off their wooden staffs.

The superintendent of the cemetery affirms that a brazen squirrel is responsible for the disappearance of the small flags. “He plucks them right off,” he said. “If I didn´t see it, and I didn´t follow the squirrel, I never would have believed it.”

Woman survives speeding train

A mysterious Israeli woman was recorded by a security camera in North Israel when she slowly walked from her car to calmly lay herself to rail tracks just seconds before a speeding train passed. This video shows the train and carriages as they run over her as she lies on the tracks. Many would have thought of her dead as she disappeared from view for 15 seconds while the train passed over the rails.

This woman apparently unharmed went back to her car as the train passed, and left the scene. The police confirm that 2 days after this weird event, they haven´t found the woman, nor identified her. Some rumors claim the woman is from Kiryat Ono, and that she decided to end her life after losing her job in a travel agency. This has not been confirmed properly, although it seems very likely.
