This right here is great.

Thirty three-year-old Christopher Hiscock seems like a pretty normal guy according to the National Post.

Except of course for the fact that he stole a truck to drive west, broke into a ranch and spent the day living comfortably in its confines before the resident came home and found Hiscock.

"She found the accused in her home watching TV," Crown lawyer Mike Wong said.

"He had started a fire in the fireplace and prepared himself a meal. He said he had been driving by and the door was open, so he came in.

..."The accused appears to have done some laundry. He also fed the cats and put out some hay for the horses," Wong said. "He used (the residents') toothbrush and shaver, he had taken some meat out of the freezer to thaw and he had written in their diary."

Yes. That's right. He even found the residents' diary and wrote in it.

In beautiful proof that the law can sometimes work for the people, the court released his one diary entry.

"Today was my first full day at the ranch," he wrote in the diary. "I fed the cats and horses. So much I can do here I have to remind myself to just relax and take my time.

"I don't feel alone here, I guess with 2 cats and 3 horses it's kinda hard to be alone. Last night I had a fire in the house. It was so (peaceful). I slept like a little baby.

I saw a picture in the basement on the wall of a man holding and weighing fish on a boat. Looking at him I realized we look a lot alike, but I think I'm more handsome."

They did not release either a picture of Hiscock or a the picture of the man weighing the fish, so we cannot confirm or deny whether Hiscock is more handsome. Although that question will keep us awake at night.

The story has a kind of happy ending, since he was only given probation by the judge.

Hiscock, who has no prior criminal record, apologized in court.

"I made a lot of mistakes," he said. "There's really no excuses for it."

He was still beaming about his brief stay at the ranch.

"Beautiful ranch," he said. "Gorgeous. I was driving and I just turned in. Beautiful place."

Judge Chris Cleaveley placed Hiscock on a one-year probation term with orders barring him from contacting the residents of the ranch and the owner of the Ontario truck.

But his future prospects look less than ideal.

"I really have nowhere to go," he said... "The woods is a good place, I suppose. There's a lot of fish out there."

Never stop dreaming, folks.

A shadow creates an optical illusion of a hange

Tomorrow's Oct. 1 and the spooky is starting.

The Daily Mail has found photos of street signs that make a shadow that appears to look like a man being hanged.

What makes it super weird is that gallows once stood on that very spot in the Middle Ages, or at least that's what some people claim.

The illusion is seen at a spot called Dead Man's Cross in Dartmouth, Devon, where criminals were hanged in the 13th Century.

Pictures of the shadow at a crossroads between Milton Lane and Waterpool Road have gone viral after being shared on social media.

...Paula Johnston said: 'Definitely not Photoshop. Many locals, including myself, have been to the spot and looked for ourselves. 'It appears on a house opposite the crossroads known as Dead Man's Cross.'

A spokesman for Dartmouth Museum said hangings were common at Dead Man's Cross in the 1400s.

Sooooo creepy.

Imgur user mrpatata did two good deeds Sept. 28.

First, he saw a crow with a head stuck in a fence and saved it.

Second, he documented the proceedings and shared them.

He possibly did a third good deed by naming the rescued bird 'Russell Crow', depending on your appreciation of puns.

We consider it three good deeds.

Crash split car in half and man survives with no life threatening injuries.

Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

I mean, just look at this nonsense.

I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.

Holy cow that was close.

This Saudi Arabian man is just wistfully walking along, captured by a closed caption TV. He's probably thinking about what crazy thing to do on top of his car while it drives itself.

Then, BAM! Pane of glass! Surprise shard!

It really was an act of intense and incredible coincidence that kept him alive.

Thank your lucky stars, dude and get back in your car!

A woman plotted to kill a homeless man for giving her grandkids lice.

It's like Florida has an unending bet with itself to commit the most novel, unexpected crimes.

That seems to be this complicated case, in which one extremely protective grandmother tried to contract an ex-in law to murder a homeless man who was dating her daughter.

Also lice was involved.

According to Gawker:

Pamela Vanorsdale, 50, allegedly called her daughter's ex-husband last Thursday and asked him to "pop" the homeless man, 22-year-old Dylan Loveless, in the head and chest. Loveless had apparently been abusive to Vanorsdale's grandchildren, choking and chasing them, but when the kids came home with lice, that was the last straw.

The ex told police about her alleged attempt to hire him as a hitman, but she claimed she was "only joking." Some of the things she was only joking about allegedly included: being able to provide the prospective hitman with a gun, wanting Loveless shot "in the head and chest," being able to clean and dispose of the gun, and wanting the body dumped in South Carolina. She also "joked" that she could lure Loveless out of his homeless camp with the promise of work.

Doesn't she know that medicative shampoos exist?

As well as the police?

If some homeless person is messing with your grandkids, the police are probably the people to call.

What IS this magical place where high-waisted cargo pant wearing chaps bump and grind to Salt-N-Pepa all night with their female companions?

The Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack in West Virginia, that's where.

The clip, originally uploaded to Facebook where it's racked up over a million views so far, has only one caption that just leaves us wanting more.

This is the way it's done in WV and these wasn't his best moves

Fortunately for us, a few days later, there was more.
