Bank Robber Told Teller to Deposit
A 61-year-old guy in England named Paul Neaverson tried to rob a bank with a KNIFE, and demanded $800 in cash.
The teller said she didn’t have that much in her drawer. Which wouldn’t stop MOST bank robbers, but Paul said okay, and just left.
At that point he probably should have figured the cops were looking for him, and try to get as far away as possible. But instead, he walked around the corner . . . and tried to rob ANOTHER bank.
And this time he was prepared in case they didn’t have enough money, because he told the teller he’d either take cash . . . or they could just transfer the 800 bucks into his BANK ACCOUNT.
It’s not clear if he had time to give them his account number or not, because a customer grabbed the knife from him, and he ran out empty handed again.
Police eventually arrested him nearby. It all went down in March, but a judge just sentenced him to two years in prison for it.

A new survey asked people to list things you need to accomplish before you’re officially a “grown up.” Here are the top ten answers according to how popular they were, NOT the order you do them . . .
- Open a bank account.
- Learn how to change a light bulb. Which is weird, but hard to argue against. Because how many grown ups are still baffled by that process?
- Learn to write a decent resume.
- Get a job.
- Get your driver’s license.
- Apply for a mortgage.
- Do your own taxes.
- Budget for something big, like a wedding. Somehow “getting married” didn’t make the top 20 though.
- Ask someone on a date.
- Put together at least three pieces of Ikea-style furniture.
The rest of the top 20 included learning how to eat healthy . . . learning to negotiate . . . and being responsible for another living thing, meaning a child or a pet.
One Direction’s “Midnight Memories” has been named 2013’s best-selling album in the world.
The British Phonographic Industry has released the latest numbers for last year’s global sales, revealing that the boy band sold four-million copies of its third studio album in just five weeks. The chart takes into account digital downloads, physical sales and streaming services. “Midnight Memories” landed in the number one spot on charts in 19 different countries – including the U.S. – when it dropped last November.
2013 marks the third year in a row that global sales have been topped by a British artist, after Adele’s “21” dominated the same chart in 2012 and 2011. Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” was the runner-up on the latest BPI tally.
The 10 best selling albums of the past decade are as follows:
- 2013: One Direction – Midnight Memories
