This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at the case of someone who is taking the “make it Lego” fad a little too far. Like, way too far. Then, we look at what happens when you make the wrong inquiries about using wifi. Lastly, we examine the case of a very explosive toilet visit.
Follow the jump to learn more about this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe!
Lego my Handgun!
America’s firearm problem is serious business, and of course we have our problems with firearms here in Canada too. Most of the news stories are dire and often terrible. Some, however, are wacky, among other things, and deserve to be discussed. This week we start with a very bad firearm business decision, then a very poor decision with respect to a wifi password and finally we consider the unusual damage that can be caused by fireworks.
One of the most dangerous things about firearms in the United States, which doesn’t have the same stringent storage requirements we have in Canada, is children finding a gun and treating it like a toy. The loss of life and injury is baffling. More baffling is the gun manufacturer that decided to make a real handgun that looks like a toy.
Utah-based Culper Precision has made a colourful Glock-style handgun that resembles LEGO and you could probably attach LEGO to it. Who would think such a thing is appropriate?
This is an example of someone coming up with an idea and nobody having the good sense in the group to say “no.” But Weird and Wacky Wednesdays isn’t about good sense.
Why Cry Over Wifi?
It’s amazing these stories you find on the internet. Of course, you need an internet connection to find them and if you don’t have the wifi password, what do you do?
One tip: don’t ask your angry, armed neighbour for their wifi password.
A woman in Pittsburgh has been charged after taking a shot at her neighbours when they sent their son over to make inquiry of the password. Imagine deadly force used in a wifi password dispute? Luckily there were no injuries, but one would imagine Ms. Allen, the alleged shooter, will have some explaining to do
An Explosive Bathroom Visit
If it involves gunpowder and it goes boom, good chance someone will get hurt. In lucky cases there is only property damage as in the case of the Florida restroom blown up by a man apparently with fireworks.
It was the 4th of July. Well, just after midnight on the 5th. And many people are unaware of their history.
Did this Floridian (it happened in Florida) believe that the holiday is to celebrate some sort of liberation from plumbing?
Right now the Naples police are on the lookout for the suspect. If we ever learn the answers to these perplexing questions, we’ll be sure to report back.
