NEWSOFTHEWEIRD TRUE ROMANTIC The inspirational Charles Gonsoulin of Los Angeles, pursuing a Canadian woman he had met on the Internet, sneaked across the border on foot in February from the North Dakota side (because a 1984 crime would have prevented his legal entry), heading for the bus station in Winnipeg, 75 miles away, even though he had no experience with sub-zero temperatures. When police picked him up just inside Canada, he was disoriented and had such frostbite that he lost 10 fingers and most toes. But he said later, “It was all worth it for me. It’s the difference between sitting around dreaming about things and going out and getting them. I know my life is complete.” He was scheduled for deportation as soon as he recovers, and the pair still haven’t met. The woman lives in a Montreal suburb, 1,400 miles from Winnipeg.
IN THE NAME OF RESEARCH In 1989, after his release from prison on petty crimes, John L. Stanley undertook the serious study of criminology, lecturing and even hosting a Dallas radio program on crime. In December, he confessed to robbing a Commerce Bank in Kansas City, Mo., saying he needed to return to prison to further his study, telling the judge, “[T]here are some things about crime you can’t understand unless you get into the belly of the beast” and that he needed to “be secluded and do the things I need to do while I still have the time. You can take a butterfly and put it on a light stand, but until you are a butterfly and fly, you can’t understand why a butterfly flies.” Stanley showed up for sentencing in March in a wheelchair,

which was the result of his, not surprisingly, being beaten up by another inmate.
INCREASE YOUR WEALTH AND HEALTH
A female Zimbabwean athlete who had won several track and field events at meets in Botswana and Mauritius was arrested in Harare in February after authorities discovered she actually had a small penis. Samulkeliso Sithole, 17, said she was born a hermaphrodite but that her parents had paid a traditional healer to make her totally female. Because her parents failed to pay the healer’s full fee, the penis had begun to grow.

NOT MY FAULT In separate incidents, trespassers Philip Dederer, 20, in Australia and Carl Murphy, 18, in England were awarded the equivalent of around US$1 million each in March after they were injured, even though blatantly trespassing on private property. Dederer, now a paraplegic, had disregarded “no diving” signs and continued to jump into the Wallamba River until an accident occurred. A sympathetic judge regarded the signs inadequate, in that none said that diving was “dangerous.” Murphy, now partially blinded with 17 metal plates in his head from a 40-foot fall in a warehouse, claimed that if a perimeter fence had not been broken, he never would have gotten in to have his accident.

BRIGHT IDEA Dr. Thomas Perls, director of the New England Centenarian Study at Boston University Medical School, told a conference in Brisbane, Australia in March that he donates blood regularly because one of the key reasons why females outlive males is menstruation. Perls said iron loss inhibits the growth of free radicals that age cells. “I menstruate,” he said, “but only every eight weeks.”
