The French Army May Not Have Run Away After All... They May Have Gotten "Stuck" Together

So it might not be as the stigma goes that French soldiers are cowards that run away at the first sign of trouble. Due to some questionable design choices on their bayonets, they might not have had a choice. Though the fault is only their own. A simple oversight in designing the bayonet of the French MAS-36 rifle lead to a massive headache for the French army, and a lot of ribbing for anyone who was shortsighted enough to fall victim to the issue.

French bayonet had a design flaw that caused the weapons to potentially be stuck together, without any chance of fixing them

Cat Burglar of the Day: This Cat is in a Bank, Presumably, to Burgle It

The term “cat burglar” has to come from somewhere, right? Merriam-Webster defines it as “a burglar who is adept at entering and leaving the burglarized place without attracting notice.” Sounds like a real sneaky kitty. 

But that doesn’t necessarily correspond to this actual cat burglar, who was spotted just chilling in the lobby of a bank last night, presumably, in the middle of a burglary.

Now, I know this doesn’t look like your traditional cat burglar, missing are the black and white stripped shirt, black mask, and, of course, giant sack with a dollar sign on it. However, in its stead is — and follow me here — a cat.

That’s right this is a literal cat in a bank. We don’t know how the cat got in there, but we can definitely assume that he or she is there to burgle that bank.

"Hide and Seek" has always been thought of by most as a rather simple, innocent game. After all, it's for children, right? Well, a man in Australia decided to throw its innocence out the window and play the game naked. After deciding that a top-loading washing machine was a good hiding spot, he ended up getting stuck. Once emergency crews arrived, they ended up using olive oil to slip him out of his tiny prison.

One valuable lesson can be learned from this: if you get stuck naked in a washing machine, use olive oil before you call the fire department.
