iPhone thief sends victim hand-written 11 page list of 1,000 contact details

Put this story under the category of heartwarming/robbery.


Zou Bin was allegedly robbed after sharing a taxi with a man in the central province of Hunan in China. However the real shock came when he received the 11-page letter from the pickpocket, after sending a series of threatening texts demanding his Apple handset to be returned.

Bin wrote a number of text messages to the thief;

“I know you are the man who sat beside me. I can assure you that I will find you”

“Look through the contact numbers in my mobile and you will know what trade I am in.”

“Send me back the phone to the address below if you are sensible.”

Days later the 11 page list of 1,000 contacts arrived.

Bin has since said

‘”t would take a while to write from one to one thousand, let alone names and a whole string of digits”

“I suppose [the thief’s] hand is swelling.

Body Types Of Top-tier Athletes

In modern day Western society we have a very specific body image of what ‘fit’ looks like, i.e just look at the front cover of ‘Men’s Health’

New York-based photographer Howard Schatz wants to stop the illusion of those stereotypes up by showing how many types of (very fit) bodies are required for the numerous sports that we humans take part in.

For his book Athlete, Schatz has photographed all kinds of Olympic and pro athletes with the goal of displaying “the astonishing array of physical perfection required for their particular sports.”

World’s Poshest Vending Machine

Selfridges on Oxford Street have debuted the world’s first champagne vending machine. And not just any type of champagne, it is Moet & Chandon.

Moet Vending Machine

The champers machine has been installed so that shoppers can enjoy it while they’re doing their Christmas shopping.

You won’t be able to pay for the champagne by traditional means though, and instead will have to purchase tokens.

The 200ml mini bottles, which are also decorated with Swarovski crystals, cost £17.99 each (about €20)

A Slefridges spokesperson said:n

‘The inclusion of the world’s first Moet vending machine makes a decadent addition to our Christmas emporium.’

Christmas, emporium, vending – all words that get me excited this time of year!!!

Another reason, possibly the main reason, to see the machine in action is to watch the special robotic arm that transfers the champagne safely when it is dispensed.
