It looks like, while I’ve been busy, news stories that just scream that I should post them have been popping up all over the place. This is one of them.
You know you’re not meant for a life of crime when you try to escape but land in the arms of police. Seriously that’s how it happened. A 17-year-old in Geraldton, Australia, stole a scooter. After crashing it when it wouldn’t jump a curb, he left it and jumped a fence, but landed on a trampoline! Boing! Straight backwards he went, at which point police caught him in midair and pulled him back over the fence. See ya later, buddy boy.
Maybe that was fate’s way of stopping this kid from becoming a repeat offender. At least we can hope that was what it was. What are the chances?
