HAUNTED HOUSE INVITES THRILL-SEEKERS TO BE SCARED IN THE NUDE
Afraid of ghosts? Afraid of being naked? Now you can combine both these fears into one giant scream fest. Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania is opening its first haunted scream park that is meant to expose participants to “a new kind of fear.” In an event called Shoctoberfest, adventurous crowds are invited to take the “naked and scared” challenge based on a hit show on the Discovery Channel called “naked and afraid.” A group of brave participants will be able to explore a haunted house--entirely naked. Participants are invited to take their clothes off (only if they feel comfortable doing so) in a semi private space and will be lead naked with a bunch of strangers into a haunted house. Once participants have been scared out of their skin, they are then led out into a courtyard to put their clothes back on--if they make it that far. Minors are not allowed to participate and haunted house tours are not held on Sundays.
VIDEO GAME FAN STOLE A TRUCK, KIDNAPPED A WOMAN AND HIT NINE CARS TO SEE WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO PLAY GRAND THEFT AUTO IN REAL LIFE
A college lacrosse player has been arrested for allegedly stealing a truck, kidnapping a woman and smashing into nine cars before telling a police officer he wanted to see “what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.” Zachary Burgess, 20, was arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at 2:30 a.m. Saturday when officers responded to a report of a stolen vehicle and erratic driving in the Tigerland area. The Auburn University student, who was in town to watch Auburn take on LSU, allegedly stole the truck after its owner left it running in a bar parking lot with a woman inside. Burgess allegedly jumped into the driver's seat and tried to speed from the parking lot. But he faced a problem - other parked cars in his way. “When he tried to flee the parking lot there were several cars blocking the way,” Cpl. Don Coppola of the Baton Rouge Police Department said. “He began ramming into the parked cars.” Burgess, an Auburn freshman from Hoover, Alabama, allegedly struck nine vehicles in total. Afterwards, he fled the scene “with no signs of him intending to return the truck to the rightful owner,” the police report noted.
