Your Historical Daily Loser(s)

Ronald Cousin, Steve Nelon and Jerome Thompson, of Las Vegas, Nevada, along with two underaged pals, decided to try a little breaking and entering. Unfortunately for them, they picked the wrong house. The Story.

Christopher Newton, former reporter for the Associated Press, was fired when it was discovered that he was making up all of his news sources. It only took the AP a few years to catch on... The Story.

Walter Nowakowski, from Canada, was caught driving the wrong way down a one way street. The police say he was distracted. Not such a big deal, you say? How about the fact that he was distracted because he had his pants around his ankles and he was watching child porn on his laptop as he drove. The Story.

If you live in Wrexham, you might want to stay off the roads. Michelle Hughes was arrested after she smashed her car into a parked vehicle and then drove head-on into another. But apparently her erratic driving was caused by her excessive drinking and not because she is legally blind. The Story.

Actually, these guys might be winners for getting away with it... Army and Navy personnel, from the officers down to the enlisted men, were issued travel cards (credit cards paid for by Uncle Sam), and they had a jolly good time using those cards to pay for their visits to brothels and strip clubs. The Story.

Isn't there a statute of limitations on WU stories? I'd already read the 4 stories I went to YEARS ago.

I covered that in the thread title. They are "Historical" losers, which means the stories are older than dirt. I think it's nice to see that people were just as idiotic then as they are now. Makes me feel better about myself. Feel free to not read them if the age of the article bothers you 😊

I didn't go for these stories myself, since I did take note that they were 'historical' and it was likely I had read them before. But I did have to click on to read the comments, I was interested in the reaction to this new category. I don't see a problem with it. There are new members here, bored, looking for content to kill time with. And there was a disclaimer, so I appreciate that. And, I've noticed Chuck has included News of the Weird 'Classic' in some of his recent posts. So, I say more power to you if you choose to make such posts.

...but, I think they should be really historical, not from the past six months, or maybe past year. Nothing that's too fresh. And things should be really new, unless presented as classic. So I think I'm all for having a sort of rolling window where articles from one to two weeks old to maybe two years old would be off limits. News should be new, and classic should be classic.
