TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    A 62-year-old New Zealand man, who is in critical condition after crashing his motorized bar stool. The man had just left a pub on a go-kart with a bar stool on top, when he fell. He was riding the bar stool on a public road without a helmet.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    An unidentified man, who used his lighter to find out where the gas leak in his neighborhood was coming from. He found it! The video, included in the link, shows the man using his lighter then an explosion with the manhole cover being raised dozens of feet in the air.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    Bouchra Bagour, 35, who was convicted of justifying terrorism after she sent her three-year-old son to school wearing a sweater with the words "I am a bomb" on the front, along with his name "Jihad" and "Born on September 11th" on the back. The boy’s uncle Zeyad Bagour, 29, who gave the boy the offending top, was also charged with the same offense. The divorced mother insisted in a French court that the message on the jumper was not meant to be provocative, and said the boy’s genuine birth date was September 11, 2009. Even their lawyer said: "This was an act of great naivety."
