Japan man nabbed for trying to steal car ... with cops inside



TOKYO: A would-be car thief in Japan has been nabbed after he tried to steal a vehicle - with several police officers inside.

Ushio Sato, 23, was caught red-handed trying to make off with the unmarked police car in his failed pre-dawn heist on Monday (Sep 25), said a police spokeswoman in the central city of Numazu.

She declined to give more details.

Japanese media reports said the luckless Sato did not notice there were officers inside the unlocked vehicle, which was at a local parking lot.

New ransomware scam asks for nude pics to unlock files



A few months ago, two ransomware scams made news for asking users to play video games in order to get their files back. One of them asked users to play Japanese game while the second one asked users to play “click me” game.

Now, a similar but a perverted kind of ransomware attack has hit the road that does not ask users for a ransom in Bitcoin but to submit their nude pictures, and in return, they might get their files back. Yes, you read that right.

Dubbed nRansomware, the ransomware was identified by a security researcher MalwareHunterTeam who shared the screenshot of the ransom note asking users for their private pictures. The note also displayed a brief message explaining how a victim can send their pictures to the cybercriminal behind this scam.

The note is powered by a theme song of popular HBO TV series  Curb Your Enthusiasm and images of Thomas the Tank Engine character.

Australia sends out same-sex marriage survey with barcode 'bumsex'

An oversight by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has led to a same-sex marriage survey being sent out with the word "bumsex" printed in a barcode.

More than 16 million surveys were sent out across Australia by the ABS, allowing people to have their say in the postal plebiscite on same-sex marriage.

Each survey features its own unique computer generated barcode. Some of the letters beneath these barcodes have inadvetantly spelled rude wods - including "bumsex".

There's only a 1 in 272 million chance of "bumsex" appearing in that random string.

Saudi Arabia accidentally prints textbook showing Yoda sitting next to the king





The founding of the United Nations was a historic moment that saw leaders from across the planet join together to commit to a more peaceful world.

But most historians don’t remember the Jedi master Yoda being among them.

The Saudi government is scrambling to withdraw a history textbook that accidentally included a doctored photograph of King Faisal sitting next to the little green Star Wars character.

The picture was supposed to illustrate a section on the King’s rule but somehow the book’s editors used a version that showed Yoda perched next to the monarch as he signed the UN charter.

“The Ministry of Education regrets the inadvertent error,” said Ahmed al-Eissa, the Saudi education minister.

“The ministry has began printing a corrected copy of the decision and withdrawing the previous versions, and has formed a legal committee to determine the source of the error and to take appropriate action.”

Police in Nova Scotia release photo of man given too much change by store clerk

Police in Nova Scotia are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who they say left a store after getting too much change back.

The RCMP say around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, a man walked into a restaurant on Highway 330 in the community of Barrington Passage, and purchased something using what is described only as a large bill.

“The male became agitated causing the clerk to become confused, resulting in him being given a much larger amount of change back,” a police statement says.

Police don’t say how much incorrect change was given, but say they would like to speak to the individual involved.

Man stops for Chick-fil-A nuggets while wife is in labor

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina father-to-be whose wife was in labor made a pit stop at Chick-fil-A on the way to the hospital Monday morning and grabbed a pack of his favorite chicken nuggets.



Wess and Lacey Cope were on their way to Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in Charlotte around 8:30 a.m. when they took a little detour, the Charlotte Observer reports.

“She was relaxed, and I was starving,” Wess told the Observer. “If you want Chick-fil-A to move fast, tell them your wife’s in labor. They did.”

Thankfully, the couple made it to the hospital and Finn Sullivan Cope was born by C-section at 4:02 p.m.

Berlin school installs anti-prostitute fence

Berlin school installs anti-prostitute fence

A construction boom is pushing sex workers into the sidestreets and onto the doorsteps of schools. One school is fed up with its premises being invaded by unscrupulous characters.



A Berlin school finished building a 1.8-meter (5-feet-11-inch) fence to keep street prostitutes out of its campus, local media reported on Tuesday.

The Französisches Gymnasium highschool lies on a sidestreet of the German capital's notorious Kurfürstenstraße. The street is a relatively major thoroughfare through Berlin's inner west, but is also the center of the city's street prostitution scene.

Prostitutes can be seen soliciting clients at all hours of the day there. A build-up of discarded condoms and syringes, as well as excrement, were evidence that the school grounds were being used in unsavory ways.

"There were always complaints about unscrupulous characters including prostitutes walking shamelessly and illegally into school grounds even during the day," the district school inspector Carsten Spallek told the daily Berliner Zeitung.

20 Tons Of Nutella Stolen From Truck In Germany

20 Tons Of Nutella Stolen From Truck In Germany

Police in Germany are on the lookout for a thief with a massive sweet tooth. According to reports, over 20 tons of Nutella and chocolate eggs were stolen from a refrigerated trailer in the town of Neustadt.

The sugary heist reportedly took place some time between Aug. 12 and 13 and the thief — or thieves — would have needed their own truck to carry away that much chocolate, authorities say. German police are looking to see if the heist may be connected to the theft of an empty tractor trailer in the town Weimar around the same time. “It’s not even clear if they were after the sweets or after the trailer — at this point we don’t know what their motive was,” police spokesman Martin Ahlich said, per CBS affiliate KYTX.

In the meantime, police are warning people to be suspicious if they get any odd offers for sweet treats. “Anyone offered large quantities of chocolate via unconventional channels should report it to the police immediately,”

Saudi singer was jailed after dabbing during a concert



A young Saudi singer was arrested in Taif, Saudi Arabia on Tuesday after he dabbed during a musical contest he was participating in over the weekend, Okaz newspaper reported.

In a now viral video, TV host, actor, and aspiring artist, Abdallah Al Shaharani, is seen pulling off the dance move, which is officially prohibited by the country's anti-drug authority as many consider it a reference to weed and other narcotics. 

The dab - a simple dance in which a person drops their head into the bent crook of a slanted arm, while raising the opposite arm in a parallel direction but out straight - was first seen in Atlanta rapper Skippa da Flippa's 2014 video 'How Fast Can You Count It,' and later went on to become an internet craze.

It is usually performed by artists, celebrities, and even athletes in countries around the world.

‘World of Warcraft’ video game currency now worth more than Venezuelan money



Digital gold from Blizzard’s massive multiplayer online game “World of Warcraft” is worth more than actual Venezuelan currency, the bolivar, according to new data.

Venezuelan resident and Twitter user @KalebPrime first made the discovery July 14 and tweeted at the time that on the Venezuela’s black market — now the most-used method of currency exchange within Venezuela according to NPR — you can get $1 for 8493.97 bolivars. Meanwhile, a “WoW” token, which can be bought for $20 from the in-game auction house, is worth 8385 gold per dollar.

According to sites that track the value of both currencies, KalebPrime’s math is outdated, and WoW gold is now worth even more than the bolivar.

According to the site dolartoday.com, which actively tracks the worth of the bolivar on the black market, the bolivar has dropped to 11,185.95 per dollar since KalebPrime posted .

Meanwhile, according to mmobux.com, which tracks the value of WoW’s in-game currency for sales outside of the game, the lowest sale of 10,000 gold in a real life exchange will get you $1.21.

This drop in the worth of the bolivar is stark compared to its worth just a few months ago. In May, 279 bolivars would net $1, according to CNN Money. In June, the worth dropped to 408 bolivars for every dollar.
