Here are a couple weird stories:
A US man has been arrested and charged with drink driving after he crashed a motorised bar stool. The 28-year-old man invented and created the bar stool which he says can reach speeds of 38mph. Police reports said he rolled the Frankenstein-esque lawnmower and bar stool combination on his way home from the pub in Newark, Ohio. The man claimed the bar stool could reach speeds of 38 mph on its five-horsepower engine but that he was travelling at about 20 mph when he crashed it. He allegedly admitted to drinking about 15 beers when interviewed by police at hospital but insisted that was after the accident. The man was issued a citation for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving under suspension. He has pleaded not guilty at an initial hearing.
A Chinese man accidentally swallowed a pair of scissors when he burst out laughing while using them as a toothpick. Mr Lin, 27, from Putian, had to be taken to hospital to have them removed. His wife said her husband was chatting with friends after breakfast while using a small pair of scissors as a toothpick. Lin gave a big laugh on hearing a joke from a friend, and unexpectedly the scissors slipped inside his throat. The man tried to cough the scissors back up again but that only made the situation worse. X-rays showed the 9cm long and 4cm wide scissors had fully entered Lin's oesophagus. Doctors feared a general anaesthetic would relax the throat muscles and allow the scissors to travel down even further so they used a local anaesthetic and carefully removed the scissors with forceps. The whole operation took around 30 minutes.
