…Fake plane crashes are tricky to detect?

Plane Crash

A Los Angeles aircraft mechanic in training managed to get a hold of quite a few parts from a real Gulfstream jet, and used them to create a pretty convincing mock-up plane crash site in his front yard as part of a Halloween display. Funny thing is, it was so realistic, the Los Angeles Police responded to investigate the crash. It must have been a bad day for the officer who was “tricked” by this one.

…Tequila is a world record holder?

Tequila Ley

If you really, really like your tequila and really, really like being filthy stinking rich, then this solid platinum and white gold bottle of Tequila Ley .925 is just what you need to complete you collection of expensive libations. Recently purchased for $255,000, it’s the most expensive bottle of liquor ever sold according to Guinness World Records. I’d imagine this isn’t the kind of thing you drink on an everyday occasion, though I’m sure it would probably taste pretty damn good if you did.
