Nitwit News – May 30

Is there a record for the longest strike in bowling? Not the longest streak of strikes, the longest strike — one roll, one strike. A video has gone viral showing a bowler completing the impressive feat from an incredible 120 feet. Standing at the entrance door of the alley, Joey Augustine hurls the ball across the carpeted floor and down the lane before knocking down all 10 pins. Augustine works as a manager of Seaside Lanes Bowling Alley in Virginia Beach and was filmed while the building was empty.

… He used a pink 14-pound ball and needed six attempts before making the strike from 120 feet, which is double the length of a bowling lane.

A 29-year-old banker in China decided to taunt police from his BMW. He decided it would be fun to beam out images of his reckless driving. One had him holding a beer. It was accompanied by the text: “Is it unlawful to drive while drinking?” Another caption offered: “Do you really think ten beers is too much to drive with?” He posted the images on China’s equivalent of Facebook. Police caught up with his car. Though he allegedly claims the beer bottle in the image was empty and he was only having fun, he has been charged with numerous traffic violations.
