The Caturday Report! Vine Videos A Boon For Cat Adoption. :)

News from at Mashable:

As soon as Twitter launched the new Vine app, Becca Meyers of the New York Humane Society shared a six-second clip of cat Parker from the non-profit's newly minted account.

Last Friday, Parker went home with his new permanent owner, who says she adopted him because of the adorable video shared to Vine."

Walmart Madness #75! Felony Oreo Theft!

I couldn't imagine why stealing Oreos to eat on the job could be a felony.  It turns out that she admitted to thieving food on over three occasions,  which makes it a felony.

"Penny Winters was arrested this week after Walmart launched an internal investigation upon the discovery of an empty cookie wrapper. A subsequent review of surveillance footage showed “Ms. Winters select the package of cookies, open it, and proceed to consume multiple cookies during her work shift,”

"When cops asked her about the Oreos, Winters claimed she found an open package of the cookies near a cash register and assumed that they had been provided for free by management.
Winters was arrested Monday and charged with felony theft for pinching the Oreos (and other unspecified junk food). Winters was released from the Porter County jail Tuesday."

Man Attempts Escape After Wife Locks Him In Bedroom

"According to a witness, who caught the attempted escape on camera, the 35-year-old Estonian man was trying to climb out of his high-rise apartment using a makeshift rope from bed sheets he had tied together, the Gawker reports.

"He succeeded climbing one story down, but the sheet didn't withstand the weight at the seventh story," Yekaterina Horoshko said.

A local police spokesman confirmed the incident, saying the man was apparently attempting to flee his apartment after being locked up in the bedroom by his "possessive" wife.

"He said his wife locked him up," Officer Ilmar Kahro said. "Desiring to go meet friends, he decided to get out using a rope he made out of bed sheets."

He luckily landed in a snow drift and walked away after being helped by paramedics.

The Great Diamond Heist

Eight masked gunmen forced their way through the security fence at Brussels' international airport, drove onto the tarmac and snatched some $50 million worth of diamonds from the hold of a Swiss-bound plane without firing a shot.
The gang responsible for one of the biggest diamond heists in recent years used two black vehicles with a flashing blue police lights in their daring raid late Monday, said Anja Bijnens, spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor's office.

"They tried to pass themselves off as police officers," Bijnens said Tuesday. The robbers, who wore outfits resembling dark police clothing, got away with 120 parcels, mostly containing diamonds but some also holding precious metals.

Police said they found a burnt-out minivan believed to be involved in the robbery near the airport later Monday night.

Walmart Madness #72! Teacher Has Sex With Student In Parking Lot

I usually stay away from posting 'teacher has sex with student' stories here on SDIN. They are so commonplace, the stories would take over the blog! But since this teacher-student sex happened on several different occasions in a Walmart parking lot no less,  all bets are off.

A 35-year-old school employee has been accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student and performing oral sex on him in a Walmart parking lot.
Amanda Kay Miller, 35, of Whiteford, Maryland, has been arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a minor, a third degree sex offense and two counts of fourth degree sex offense.
After officials received a tip-off last week about the alleged abuse, they interviewed the student who said he had been having sex with his teacher since December 2012.
He also said Miller - who is an inclusion helper at North Harford High School - would buy him cigarettes and take him home from school sometimes.

Meteor Strike In Russia, Hundreds Injured

Amateur videos broadcast on state television showed an object streaking across the sky, trailing smoke, around 9:20 a.m. local time before bursting into a fireball. It caused a sonic boom from which residents in the city of Chelyabinsk, the largest in the affected region, described a shock wave that blew in doors, smashed glass and set off car alarms.

Almost 1,000 people sought medical attention, mostly for cuts from flying glass, and 43 were hospitalized, the Emergency Situations Ministry said. Around 3,000 buildings were damaged by the blast, which blew a hole in the walls of a metals factory in Chelyabinsk, approximately 900 miles east of Moscow.

Walmart Madness #71! Man Takes Workers Hostage With Fire Extinguisher

A man who was arrested Sunday at a Glendale Walmart is accused of trying to take about a dozen employees hostage while brandishing a fire extinguisher, according to police documents.
Police believe the incident began when a man they have identified as Ryan Herman, 23, of Glendale attempted to pocket a pack of cigarettes from a Walmart located near North 59th Avenue and West Bell Road, according to the documents. When a store employee confronted him, he left the store with the cigarettes - only to return to throw his keys at an employee.
Witnesses told police Herman grabbed a bottle of alcohol off the shelf and lobbed it through a window, breaking both the window and the bottle, according to the reports.
Store employees told police Herman ordered them to sit on the floor of the break room and lock the door. When they told him it couldn't lock, he shut the door and began to pace, according to the reports.
Police arrived and observed Herman holding the fire extinguisher. After an officer asked him to put the extinguisher down, Herman is accused of raising it in a "threatening manner," according to police documents.
The officer deployed his Taser on Herman and took him into custody.


The Heart Attack Grill Mascot Dies Of Heart Attack

RIP John Alleman

"Although he was never on the payroll, Alleman had been a faithful patron since the restaurant opened in October 2011, owner Jon Basso told the paper. He inspired a "Patient John" caricature on the Heart Attack Grill's menu, clothing line and merchandise.

Alleman is the Heart Attack Grill's second unofficial spokesman to die. In March 2011, 575-pound Blair River - known as the Grill's "Gentle Giant" - died of flu-related pneumonia."

Not only that - this is the second story I've covered at SDIN involving a heart attack and The Heart Attack Grill!  The first story involved a man having a heart attack WHILE EATING at The Heart Attack Grill:

Man Steals Doughnut Truck, Police Outraged!

<---  The police were not amused

James Major (photo at left) allegedly stole a Krispy Kreme truck from a gas station last week, taking off with massive amounts of Krispy Kreme yummy dougnuts,  then leading police on a frantic chase for the doughnuts across the county.

"The vehicle then sped up on the interstate and failed to yield to our visual and audibles signals to pull over," one responding officer wrote. "The suspect vehicle then exited the interstate on the Beaver Ruin Road exit and made a left turn, while running the red light on the top of the exit."

Major reportedly ran a few more red lights and forced at least one vehicle off the road, going as fast as 70 mph before fleeing onto Burns Road. Driving erratically and leaving the roadway several times, the Krispy Kreme truck eventually made it to Ferrite Loop, a dead-end cul-de-sac near Cruse Road in Lawrenceville.

Major hit a mailbox before trying to flee on foot."

A British artist named Phillip Blackman makes zombie teddy bears.  He calls his Zombie Teddies  "Undeadteds," saying "they are repurposed soft toys transformed into fluffy, bloody horrors to keep you awake at night."

And read the short yet sweet interview with Phillip Blackman HERE

"They've all been great fun to make but of all the ones I've made so far my favourites are the Valentine ones, holding their torn-out hearts aloft as a grisly gift to their lovers. Horrible."

German Cookie Monster Returns Golden Cookie

The large golden cookie turned up on a horse monument in front of Hannover University in northern Germany.  :)   As reported last week,  the cookie kidnapper had demanded that cookies be sent to a local children's hospital for the golden cookies safe return.  Now the cookienapper had this to say:

"Because Werni loves the biscuit as much as I do and now always cries and misses the biscuit so badly, I'm giving it back to him," the kidnapper wrote.

"Werni" is a nickname for the German name Werner, a reference to Werner Bahlsen's public appeals for the safe return of his company emblem.

And it seems the culprit deliberately chose the Leipniz University location for the return of its golden hostage as a nod to Bahlsen's popular "Leipniz Cookie".

Werner Bahlsen said in a statement Tuesday that he would keep his promise of donating 52,000 packages of cookies — if the golden cookie turns out to be the real thing."

<--- Here is Kim,  she attempted to sue Rouslan but was forced to drop her suit after admitting she had in fact asked for all 56 stars to be inked in - but had lied about falling asleep as her dad was furious with her.


"A ROGUE tattooist who inked 56 stars on a teen girl's face has caused a write fuss again - after signing his name in giant letters across his girlfriend's face less than 24 hours after they met.

Controversial Rouslan Toumaniantz became notorious when he inscribed a galaxy of stars over the face of Kimberley Vlaeminck, then just 18, in his studio in Coutrai, Belgium.
Now Toumaniantz has struck again by tattooing his Christian name in lettering five inches high across another girl's face."
