Imagine all the places you could get wind burn.
June 19, 2021
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A Nebraska man set a new world record by completing 60 skydiving jumps in 24 hours while dressed in nothing but his safety equipment.
Rian Kanouff of Omaha said he contacted Guinness World Records about setting the record for most naked skydiving jumps in 24 hours, and the group said he could create the new record category if he performed at least 25 jumps in the time period.
Kanouff said its an informal tradition for skydivers to perform their 100th jump in the nude, and he came up with the idea to set the naked skydiving world record as a fundraiser for a mental health charity after the recent death of a friend.
"My friend that we lost to mental health issues was about [that] close to his 100th jump," Kanouff told local news. "Close enough that he talked about it all the time, and he didn't get to make it. So I am out here for him and a lot of other people that we lost."
Kanouff ended his attempt with 60 completed naked jumps over Weeping Water, Neb. His attempt raised money for the Movember Foundation, a charity dedicated to men's mental health and suicide prevention.

How's this for a nightmare scenario
Residents of a rural region of Victoria, Australia, found their towns blanketed in cobwebs resulting from spiders fleeing from flood conditions. Photos and videos captured in multiple towns in the Gippsland region show fields, homes and trees covered in blankets of spider silk. "This is a surprisingly common phenomenon after floods," Professor Dieter Hochuli, an ecologist from the University of Sydney, said. "When we get these types of very heavy rains and flooding, these animals who spend their lives cryptically on the ground can't live there anymore, and move to the higher ground." The webs resulted from a phenomenon known as "ballooning," which involves spiders using strands of silk to ride on gusts of wind. "Simultaneous ballooning by thousands of spiderlings can result in a remarkable carpet of silk, called gossamer, covering shrubs or fields," the Australian Museum's website states.

Man head-butts bus over fare
Police are working to identify a Florida man who apparently knocked himself out for a few seconds by head-butting a bus out of anger over a $2 fare. The Winter Haven Police Department, which posted video of the incident to its Facebook page, said the man got off the bus about 11:35 a.m. when it arrived at its stop. Police said the man told the driver he wanted to go to another location, and he became "extremely agitated" when the driver told him it would be an additional $2 fare to travel to the other location. The driver locked the bus and went inside the enclosed part of the bus terminal, leaving the passenger sitting alone on a bench. The man walked away, but returned to the still-locked bus four minutes later. The video shows the man get a running start before head-butting the door of the bus, shattering a glass window. The man falls to the ground and appears to be knocked out for a few seconds before collecting himself and running away. "File this under what NOT to do when you get mad regarding bus fare -- ouch," police wrote on Facebook.
