Bonehead Of The Day:
A 64-year-old Australia man tried to carjack a 24-year-old woman's car but didn't get away because he took too long to load his walker and groceries into the car.
He rolled up on the woman in a Kmart parking holding a knife he had just bought inside.
She called the cops and they ended up getting there before he could get away in her car. He was still loading his stuff inside when they showed up.
The woman wasn't hurt and all of her stuff was given back.

Trending #1 On Twitter... Myspace?
A scan over this week's Twitter trends shows an unlikely website rising to the surface - Myspace.
In fact, it was the number ONE trending site yesterday.
The pre-Facebook social network used to be everyone's favorite way to stalk their ex and friends from High School, but the emergence of Zuckerberg's Facebook pretty much killed MySpace.
But it's back. It's redesigned and your old login information still works.
Oh, and you're still friends with "Tom."
The Computer From War Games Is For Sale
If you don't remember the film WarGames, it starred Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy and was about nerdy computer hackers. The film turns 30 this month and the ancient, prized computer that Matthew Broderick owned in the film could be yours.
The man who provided the film crew with the computer still has almost every single original part - and we're talking old, humongous, 8-inch floppy disk parts.
He had the option to sell the famous computer at Christie's auction house but he worried the computer would get damaged shipping over the pond.
Christie's did value the working memorabilia at $25,000 - so he's looking to take the computer to another auction here in the US to try and sell to an avid - and rich - fan.

On his deathbed he said ADHD is essentially a "fictitious disease"… a theory he created but that was never truly proven.
