A Russian man tired of credit-card offers turned the tables on the country’s biggest online bank by drawing up his own contract and slipping it past the clueless moneymen. The 42-year-old (Dmitry Agarkov) doctored the fine print on a bank contract to give himself unlimited credit at zero percent interest with no fees or penalties ever — and the bank signed off. The bank came after Agarkov for $1,363 in late charges, but a judge ruled in his favor.

An Arizona man who built a pirate-ship-shaped tree house in his back yard is on the hunt to find his treasure after someone broke into it. Mike Shepard says thieves took a door off its hinges and made off with $5,000 worth of his stuff, including real gold coins, jewelry and swords.

Christina Andrews of Pensacola, Florida, decided that she needed to take drastic action about the size of her breasts. So she prepared a large sign in pretty pink with blue letters which simply read: “Not Homeless, Need Boobs,” and stood at busy road junctions hoping for donations. Christina says, “I just want bigger boobs, because I’m not happy with the ones I have and I figured this was a good way to do it.” She says that even when she didn’t get money she was happy that she was able to make people smile.
