A dad in the U.K. recently discovered that his 6-year-old twins, a boy and a girl, charged nearly $1,600 worth of in-app purchases while playing games on his iPad in just two days. The man and his wife (of St. Ives, Cambridgeshire) received four pages worth of charges from Apple, for items like virtual pets and virtual clothing, ranging in cost from $4 to $125. Apple has refunded the family’s bill as a sign of good will.

Two men have been fined $2,500 for harassing a moose out for swim in northwestern Ontario, Canada. Two men circled the moose in a boat and one of the men jumped on its back.

A fencing instructor stopped a robbery last week while shopping at a mall in Tennessee (Bellevue). He did it with the very sword and protective gear he teaches classes with. The instructor was pulling into the mall parking lot when he noticed two men using pepper spray against a couple. One of then men stole the women’s purse and tried to get away. Flying into action the instructor jumped out of his car, grabbed his fencing sword, and took off towards the two robbers. He charged at them while yelling. The robbers completely panicked and dropped everything they stole. The robbers were arrested moments later.
