Man’s drunk birthday goes too far
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
A Naples, Fla., man celebrated his 23rd birthday by swimming naked in a
river, screaming at himself and spitting in the face of the police officer
who handcuffed him.
. The man repeatedly refused to come to shore or to disclose his name.
But after persistent prompting, he eventually gave in to the officer’s questioning,
and claimed to be Jesus Christ.
In court Monday, the man pleaded for probation, saying that he was just trying
to celebrate his birthday.”
“Get a cape next time,” the judge said after granting the man a plea bargain. “It
was humorous in a way, but you could have drowned.”
NOTED. Trends show that fewer Japanese
women are having babies because they don’t
want to get married to childish Japanese men.
Middle-aged women are refusing to settle for
men who work long hours, refuse to help with
child-rearing and view marriage simply as a
way to acquire live-in help. The percentage of
Japanese women who remain single into their
30s has more than doubled since 1980.
