Wacky… But True, October 12th

Authorities say a man tried to jump his car over a canal in a Florida neighborhood, but didn’t make it as the car had be towed from the Lehigh Acres canal on Tuesday after it failed to clear the 20 feet (6 meters) between both sides. Before attempting the jump, witnesses say the man drove to the edge of the canal and got out of the car to observe the distance. Lee County deputies say the man wasn’t injured, but the Toyota Corolla was totaled. (Source: abcnews.go.com)

The winner of the 44th World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off had the heaviest pumpkin recorded in the history of the San Francisco Bay Area competition. The Orange County Register reports that a forklift hoisted the giant pumpkin onto a scale and a crowd watched as it was weighed Monday in downtown Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco. It registered 2,363 pounds (1,070 kilograms) to make it the seventh win for grower Joel Holland. The giant pumpkin earned the Sumner, Washington, man prize money of $7 per pound.
