Can you sink a ship with a train? Almost.
April 04, 2020
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Imagine you're crazy and you think the government is out to get you. Not a huge leap of the imagination in this day and age. Now imagine a global pandemic hits; at least what the government SAYS is a global pandemic, and all of a sudden a huge government "hospital ship", so-called, comes sailing into the harbor in your home town. How do you let everybody know about the conspiracy and destroy this exigent threat disguised as a mission of mercy?
Well, if you're a train engineer in charge of a 300,000 pound locomotive you would do what this maniac did.
A train engineer at the Port of Los Angeles was arrested for allegedly derailing a locomotive at full speed near the USNS Mercy hospital ship being used to ease hospital beds during the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a complaint filed in Los Angeles federal court, 44-year-old Eduardo Moreno ran the train off the tracks before crashing through a series of barriers, ultimately coming to rest more than 250 yards from the Mercy. His goal was to ram the ship with the locomotive, and considering how ridiculous it is to sink a ship with a train, 250 yards is a pretty good try.
According to a CHP officer who witnessed the crash, the train smashed through a concrete barrier at the end of the track, through a second steel barrier, a chain-link fence, then slid through a parking lot, another empty gravel lot, and finally into a second chain-link fence.
Moreno later stated in an interview with FBI agents that he did it out of the desire to "wake people up." According to the affidavit. "Moreno stated that he thought that the U.S.N.S. Mercy was suspicious and did not believe 'the ship is what they say it's for.'"
"You only get this chance once," Moreno stated. "The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
Moreno was charged with one federal count of train wrecking, which carries a potential sentence of up to 20 years.

When juggling a regular sword isn't dangerous enough
An Idaho man broke a Guinness World Record that he said was perfect for social distancing: most catches in 30 seconds with a fire sword. David Rush, who has broken more than 100 Guinness World Records to promote STEM education, took to the middle of the cul-de-sac across his street and flipped the flaming sword 57 times in 30 seconds, beating the previous record of 28. Rush said his neighbors came out of their houses to watch while maintaining a safe distance both due to coronavirus social distancing protocols and the fact that he was throwing a flaming sword into the air. The record-breaking enthusiast broke the record for most fire sword catches in one minute in summer of 2019, but his previous attempt for the 30-second version of the record was disqualified by Guinness for unknown reasons.

Ohio alligator comes out of the closet
Police in Ohio said they were investigating a reported robbery at a home when they made an unexpected discovery -- an alligator in a closet. Columbus Police said they were called to an east side home on a report of a gun being pulled during an argument over the return of Xbox gaming console. The department said officers were collecting evidence and conducting interviews at the home when they found the alligator in the closet. The Ohio Department of Agriculture was called in to take custody of the 2-year-old animal. Investigators said it is legal to own an alligator in Ohio with the proper permits, but the home's resident did not have the required paperwork.
