[News] Things to Worry About Today

Best murder defense available, according to Christopher Rogers's lawyer: Well, true, Christopher did confess to killing those three people, but only because "aliens" had taken him over and made him say it . . in exacting detail. (Bonus: You can take a look at him sitting in court and make up your own mind.) Anchorage Daily News

More evil spirits: The San Francisco lawyer for a victim of a $500k fraud said that accused con man Kausbal Niroula, 27, is just an "evil" force, with a "supernatural ability to get low bail" in his cases. ("There are too many instances of him getting out and going free to blame it on his charisma or a lack of good police work.") SF Weekly

A stationery shop clerk in Gravesend, England, actually accepted that £20 note that was supposed to feature The Queen's face but actually featured the face of (lower-case) queen Boy George. Daily Telegraph

But he knew the layout: Off-duty police officer Michael Tindall was arrested, charged with robbing the First Bank of Conroe (Texas), where he worked as a security guard. (Yeah, he wore a helmet and sunglasses, but . . .) Houston Chronicle

Economic stimulus in Britain: Paul and Deborah Rees, professional psychics, just got a £4.5k small-business grant to open an "academy" in South Wales and reminded critics that how else are grieving parents going to be sure their dead kids are safe, other than by asking them directly? Daily Mail

Innocent. He was only trying to prevent the need for a government bailout of the glass repair businesses.

This is my excuse in case my boss ever walks in while I'm commenting on WU. Hopefully, I won't have to prove it by showing the anal probe scars though.

"supernatural ability to get low bail"
Never underestimate the lack of good police work. It's more rampant then crime.

Every story posted today is about aliens! They're everywhere! Inescapable! They're coming up my drive way! They're knocking on my door!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhggggggggggggggggggggg!!!!!!

Oh, wait, it was just some JW's.

Expat - I'd be more bothered by the JW's. Aliens may be coming in peace.

£20 Note Wouldn't Boy George's picture be on the £7 note?
Posted by Expat47 in Athens, Greece on 03/26/09 at 12:28 PM
Aliens - Yeah, he looks like the type that aliens would take advantage of. Poor fella.

Well in the states he would have been the three dollar bill if it weren't for Clay Aiken. Damn I hate American Idol!

I'm curious as to what the popular perception of L7 is. The interweb seems to think it means "square". I was told differently.

Christopher Rogers - It's the Shadows! The Drakh have gotten their Keepers here on earth. AHHH!

Kausbal Niroula - Obviously a Drakh in disguise. Using the keepers to get low bail money!

20 Pound Note - Again, Drakh keepers! I's obvious Boy George is behind it and is at least a Drakh, if not a full blown Shadow!!

Bank Heist - More evidence of Keepr involvement. Why would he ever do that on his own??

Psychic Academy - Why is this weird?

Jury Duty - Guilty of not being smart enough to hire Dennis the Menace!

aliens made me do it- how many crimes must he be convicted of before prior bad acts can be admitted into testimony? geesh!

evil- don't ya think if he had that kind of power that he would not have been caught in the first place?!

counerfit- don't they have those markers to check money with over there? if not why don't we send 'em some they are an ally after all.

cop/bank robber- dude, 'somewhere everybody knows your name' is for bars not armed robberies. (so now i guess he will be behind bars instead of in them)

glass breakage- and i'd have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those darn kids! (what no dog?)

"aliens" had taken him over - anyone else play the Sims and ever had their sim abducted by aliens? don't they get the funniest look on their face when they get yanked away from their telescopes? (Nope, it has nothing to do with this guy, just the mention of aliens reminded me of it.)

security guard - he couldn't think of a better disguise? maybe he should have dressed up as ruffles the clown.
