A Little Friday File Fun

In Munich, Germany, a man has found a faster way to get to work without all the traffic hassles. According to Reuters, he used to go to work via bus, bike, car or on foot, but now he swims there. The beer garden worker now packs his laptop and clothes into a waterproof bag which he puts on his back, dons his wetsuit and slides into the River Isar for his journey. He admits that he does this mostly in the summer, as the river water is very cold in winter.

In Danvers, Massachusetts, police received several calls about an alligator along Route 128. When they went to investigate, they found it was a foot-and-a-half plastic toy discarded by the side of the road.

Somewhere in Australia, in a bit of irony, a man bought a Rolls-Royce a couple of weeks ago, but decided the parking garage at his luxury apartments was not secure enough to protect his prize. He a custom cage built surrounding his parking space to protect the vehicle. However, the man had trouble navigating in and out of the cage and ended up driving into one of the cage’s support poles and walls, causing a large amount of damage to the car.

In Aptos, California, in another bit of irony, an into.xicated man lost control of his vehicle on a highway, ran over a road sign, careened up an embankment, flipped and landed on the roof of the car. He survived the crash. The sign he ran over: “Report drunk drivers Call 911.”
