Some quirkies for you! LOL!

An Outback town in Australia is holding the World Moon Rock Throwing Championships. It is part of the Fossil Festival in Richmond, north-west Queensland. Festival organiser Rob Ivers told ABC Australia the competition is similar to shot-putting but uses 30 kilogram moon rocks instead. He explained: "Moon rocks are large spherical creations and they were formed in the inland crustacean sea of Queensland about 100 million years ago." :D

A teenage burglar tried to reclaim the items he had stolen after they were handed in to police. The 15-year-old boy stole discs and a watch from a school then hid them at a Royal British Lefion in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. His haul was spotted by a passer-by and taken to police. Officers were amazed when the boy turned up at the station asking for the items back. The boy was given a referral order at Llandudno youth court. :rolleyes:

A cemetery in Santiago, Chile is offering its clients coffins with a sensor that detects any movement inside them after they have been buried. According to the Camino a Canaan cemetery the sensor attached to the coffin is to avoid anyone being buried alive. Spokesperson for the cemetery told La Cuarta: "We want to be pioneers and avoid catalepsy cases, in which a person gets completely paralysed for a few hours and ends up buried as if they were dead. "We want families to rest assured that if a case like this ever happens their loved ones will be immediately rescued." http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif
