READER OF THE MONTH
Of all the places to stick your head.
October 24, 2020
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
An idiot in Seattle narrowly avoided strengthening the gene pool when he survived being stuck head-first down a chute attached to a railroad car for 18 hours.
Emergency crews responded to the scene after receiving 911 calls from people who heard someone yelling for help, said the Seattle Fire Department.
"We don't see these very often," spokesman Kyle Moore said. "Apparently overnight he had crawled into a hole in a void space of the car and slid head-first at a 45 degree angle down this little chute and was stuck. He could not move, and he was stuck in this very small confined space."
"If he actually successfully made it through the small hole at the end he would have just been underneath the train car," he said.
Firefighters were able to rescue the man by pulling him out by his feet. It was unclear why the man crawled into the chute.
The man was very stiff by the time firefighters got him out, but appeared not to have suffered any serious physical injury. Any preexisting brain damage is subject to speculation.

This sounds like good prenatal care
A California athlete's speed is going viral for an unusual reason after she ran a mile in under 6 minutes -- while 9 months pregnant. Makenna Myler, 28, said her doctors cleared her to continue running with the Valor Track Club in Orange County five to six times a week while pregnant. Myler's husband, Mike, bet her $100 that she could not run a mile in under 8 minutes, and she decided to take on the challenge only one week before her due date. The runner crushed the goal, finishing with a time of 5 minutes, 25 seconds. The average time for a female runner to complete a mile is 10 minutes, 40 seconds. "I think pregnancy is a beautiful thing and it's not an injury or a sickness, that you're still really capable," Myler told Good Morning America. "Someone check the Guinness stats. My wife is an absolute champion," Mike Myler wrote.
German man sets body modification record
A German man set a Guinness World Record for most body modifications -- and he says he isn't finished altering his body. Rolf Buchholz said his enthusiasm for body modification didn't awaken until he got his first tattoo at age 40, but he soon became addicted and now has 516 body modifications, including tattoos, piercings and subdermal implants. Buchholz previously set the world record for most piercings when they were officially counted at 453 -- including 158 around his lips alone. Buchholz said he has added more body modifications since they were officially counted at 516, and he is still considering further modifications.
