Texas Church Explodes on Would-Be Thieves
Whether it was negative karma, divine intervention or just god-awful luck, a couple of would-be thieves learned a painful lesson while trying to rob a Houston church.
Westway Baptist Church is without power after the unidentified men apparently attempted to steal the building’s main electric cable for its copper and set off an explosion.
If you guessed "some imbecile got turned into barbecued human by trying to steal a live electric cable", congratulations! You win this round of "Guess the stupid tweaker move!" You *HAVE* to go to the link, though - they have surveillance video of the dumbass in action, and you can see him explode in sparks. Rarely is karma ever so fittingly and timely delivered.
I do have to admit, though, that it's stories like these that make me wonder if Darwin was wrong. How on earth do these people manage to make it to adulthood never having drank out of a bottle with a skull & crossbones on it? Look, you don't need to be an electrical engineer to know that cutting a power line = bad idea. Yet these stories happen with depressing regularity. At least there's video here, good for a chuckle at the dumbass.
I guess if they were smart they wouldn't be trying to steal cable to sell for scrap, right?
That is all.
