Let it be know that the San Antonio Aquarium is nothing more than road side attraction. Built in an old car dealership building. They were temporarily closed and treat their animals poorly. That crime actually took very little planning because they are poorly staffed with people who don't care.

Painful way to deter shoe theft is to stick something pointy in the display shoe, but if you aren't that nice then put to different size shoes on display and laugh at the idiots who stole a size 9 1/2 left shoe and a size 10 right shoe.

The best part with the Swedish helicopter robbery, any money they have hidden, is now useless, we changed the look of our currency and that money is no longer legal. They can only use it for fire wood.

Nicklas Odh (6 months ago)
A really cool antiklimax about the Swedish helicopter raid is that the unfound money is totally worthless. Sweden did replace their bills and coins (except the 10kr coin) with totally new ones in 2015 and 2016 and if you show up at the bank with more than 10000 SEK (About 1200USD) The bank starts asking questions.

The idea of stealing the display shoe is that the store will then put out the other one rather than breaking up another pair. They then go steal that one too, giving them a full pair of the same size.

Asia and Africa have corruption in politics?
KaîÇee Crane (2 months ago)
+Kalle Klæp I agree, perhaps in all political systems but especially noticeable in western political systems
Kalle Klæp (2 months ago)
+KaîÇee Crane Of course, they are not all criminals. However, corruption plays a major role in politics...unfortunately.
KaîÇee Crane (2 months ago)
+Kalle Klæp politicians are criminals? Are all politicians criminals? If you think so then I present this. I assume you hold the belief politics is corrupt, for what ever reason it is so doesn't matter for this point but there is some reason(s), because of this you are vocal in your conserns. This is not a new sentiment amongst the people. Perhaps you stop there, only just being vocally against the criminal corruption as you see it and as others see it. Perhaps instead of only being vocal you also wish something to be done about this perceived corruption, maybe you don't know what should be done or how but something needs to be done. Perhaps few, but some from the group of people who share this sentiment will be willing do something and take action, and some of those who take action may believe they can change things from the inside and they go for it, they run for local office. Perhaps they can change things, perhaps not, but none the less their motivation for becoming a politician was to create change and to seek out ridding the political scape of their perceived criminal corruption. Perhaps down the line power corrupts and they become corrupted themselves, and if they do none the less at some point in their career they weren't corrupt as to become corrupted is to first lack the quality so you may gain it. I'd say it is safe to say at begging of their career in politics, when they were first running for office, there was at least one person who wasn't a criminally criminally corrupt politician. The problem with absolutes is two fold: they ignore nuance and the world doesn't work in absolutes. Making a generalization is looking at something in absolutes an this is a logical fallacy
Kalle Klæp (2 months ago)

lol, diamonds as number 1? You should know that a cut diamond is worth as much as a shiny piece of cut glass. 99.7% of all diamonds are stored in vaults to keep the price up

An Unentitled Motivated Millennial no.... buyers set the price. Demand. remember when home phone prices dropped because of cell phones?
It simply dose not matter the price of diamonds will stay the same even if most of the world knows this fact the people setting the price are far too powerful.
