Greetings fellow Bizarros:
You never know what goes through some peoples' minds when they do crazy stuff. Sometimes you can get an idea afterward, especially if they get arrested, but if that crazy stunt ends up in a death the 'why' becomes lost forever and all you have is a bizarre story; like the one today of a man who tried and succeeded in jumping a car over an entire river... with the aid of a cliff.
Witnesses and investigators are reacting with astonishment after a high-speed pursuit ended with a car launched clear across the San Joaquin River separating Fresno and Madera Counties in California.
Fresno County Coroner's Office identified the driver as 58-year-old David Callahan of Fresno. According to Fresno Police, before Callahan drove off the cliff, he was driving recklessly near Herndon and Parkway Drive around 8:30 a.m.
"The vehicle was driving recklessly and actually drove past an officer," said Sgt. Bob Reynolds.
Callahan led police on a chase and officers say he eventually drove off the cliff near Dickenson and Herndon. He was airborne for about 400 feet and crossed an entire of the San Joaquin River, and crashed onto the other side in Madera County.
"He went down to Barstow, hung a U-turn and hit the lip," said witness Bryan Zollars. "Like at a hundred miles per hour, he cleared the whole damn river."
"This is just me eyeballing it, but from what it looks like, it looks like at some point the vehicle landed completely on its top," said CHP Officer Matt Zulim.
The impact of the crash killed the driver at the scene.
"What may have been going through his mind to drive this fast?" said Zulim "And to do what he did in his car today.. He jumped the San Joaquin River. It's an absolute tragedy. You never want to see someone die especially in this fashion."

Woman attacked man for farting in her face
A South Carolina woman was arrested for allegedly beating a man in his 60s, after the man drunkenly passed gas in her face. Witnesses told police that 33-year-old Jessica Cerney was asleep on her couch in her Myrtle Beach residence when 64-year-old Darrell McNight entered the home and farted in her face. "[McKnight] came into the house intoxicated and 'passed gas' is [Cerney's] face while she was laying on the couch," according to the police report. The two were arguing over the incident and [McKnight] walked toward [Cerney] cursing in a "threatening manner." [Cerney] stated that she pulled her arms down and when McKnight bent down she struck him in the face approximately three times with a closed fist." McKnight had to be taken to the hospital for treatment to a swollen right eye while Cerney did not suffer any injuries. Both parties were issued citations for fighting. It is unclear if they knew each other prior to the incident.

Mom fed daughter tapeworms so she would lose weight
A mom in Florida forced her daughter to ingest tapeworms in order to slim down for competition. Upon checking into the emergency room with severe stomach pains, nurse Maricar Cabral-Osorio thought the teen was pregnant. But an ultrasound showed no fetus -- although there was an inexplicable growth in her intestines. The unfortunate teenage contestant's condition became clear upon a fateful trip to the bathroom. "It was a toilet bowl full of tapeworms," Cabral-Osorio recalled. "It was so gross and she had pooped all these tapeworms. There were a couple that were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl." Having passed the parasites, the teen was then assumed to be fine. After an apparent fight between the mother and daughter, it became clear the mother bought a pill of tapeworm eggs in Mexico and forced her daughter to take it to lose weight for an upcoming pagent. It is unclear when the incident occurred or if criminal charges were brought against the mother.
What's the luck? The last thing I bought from a thrift store had fleas in it.
That 8-year-old girl (man) must not read the news much. I have read several stories about pre-teens getting arrested for child pornography because they were sending each other naked selfies on their phones. They ages didn't help them. Not that I look for stories like that or anything. Maybe you shouldn't publish this comment.

What is your opinion on the conflict between the white high school student and the native American demonstrator at the Lincoln Memorial?
The student is clearly racist.
A perfect example of white privilege.
It's the student's own fault for wearing a MAGA hat.
This is fake news in action.
The whole thing is a left wing conspiracy.
The student should sue media outlets for defamation.
