I'm not sure exactly what my technique would be if I became a burglar, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't waste time like this guy. A gentleman broke into a restaurant in New York City last month. And the security cameras caught him stripping down to his birthday suit before stealing $600 from the cash register, an iPad, a cordless phone, and a credit card. But then it got extra weird. Because before he ran out of the restaurant . . . he put his clothes BACK ON. The cops aren't sure why this guy got naked. But I have two theories: One, he's been binge watching old "CSI" episodes and he worried about leaving fabric fibers at a crime scene. Two, he’s just weird. Let's go with he’s just weird. Anyway, the cops are still trying to track him down.

Canadian Corey Bellemore is really having one of those “so close but not” type of moments. He was all set to break a world record when he was suddenly disqualified for missing one - just a half an ounce - of detail. In a video posted to TwitterBellemore can be seen speeding ahead during the Beer Mile World Classic, a race where contestants have to drink 12-ounce beers every quarter mile before they finish. He crossed the finish line with what seemed like a record-breaking winning time of 4-minutes, 33-seconds. But, he was sadly disqualified… for not drinking enough beer. According to the Beer Mile’s website, he lost by half an ounce of beer, and it looks like he learned his lesson about being too hasty with the chugging. “Never rush through life,” Bellemore jokes in a tweet following the loss. British runner Dale Clutterbuck took his spot in first place with a time of 4-minutes, 47-seconds.
