When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch. What they did take, however, was a white box filled with a grayish-white powder. (That's the way the police report described it.)
A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high grade cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time.
Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded withthe burglars: 'Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago.'
The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The white box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Scotch taped to the box was this note which said: "Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day."

Stories about stupid criminals are funny. I just never believe them much.
Like the bank robber who gave the teller a tick up note written on the back of hs own deposit slip
Or the robbers who attempted to steal a safe by attaching a tow chain on it attached to their bumper. The safe was so heavy that it yanked off their bumper. They went off with out it leaving their bumper there still attached to their car tag.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
