Did you ever get a chance to school an idiot to their face?

God, I love these stories. When an arrogant ass goes on and on about something and then a hidden expert quietly demolishes them in front of everyone, it’s a magical thing.

One of my favorite memories was back in Colorado. I was in peak form, with many, many mountain summits and solo backcountry hikes under my belt but I was a young chick with long blonde hair and I guess that’s all a lot of men need to know.

Who did it creepier, Highgate, London, or Leadville, Colorado?

by allthoughtswork

I’ve been to the old Leadville cemetery and this video doesn’t do it justice. It goes on forever into the woods with no point of reference, you’re constantly tripping into the sunken furrows of unmarked graves, worn marble headstones jut out of the ground everywhere to stare at you like faceless ghosts, and it’s silent out there. Ain’t nobody to hear to scream.

An Untimely Death in Colorado

James Knudsen

James Knudsen

He was a familiar figure in the neighbourhood, puffing on his pipe as he watched folk going about their business from his favourite spot in the garden

A cheerful soul, with not an evil bone in his body or a malicious tongue in his head, F***** was well-liked by everyone, particularly the children, who would often stop to talk to him on their way to and from school

It was a shock then when his friend James Knudsen found his lifeless body lying . . .

They seek him here, they . . . .

Police in Boulder, Colorado are hunting for a leprechaun.

They received calls from folk complaining that a leprechaun was dancing around a local car park – jumping out from behind cars, and pretending to shoot people with his fingers.

When they arrived at the scene, however, the leprechaun disappeared (they can do that you know)

Colorado man – a sex offender ?

by duncanr

Yesterday evening, the Cafe carried a report about a Colorado man, Daniel Lyons, who became trapped in his van as it balanced precariously on a rock outcrop after plunging over a cliff.

We raised the suspicion that this was not an accident but a failed suicide attempt – pointing to the lack of skid marks where the car left the road.

Today more information about Mr Lyons came to light which strengthens the suicide hypothesis.

It appears that 4 hours before his car plunged over the cliff Mr Lyons was questioned by police over allegations that he sexually assaulted a 4yr old girl.

In a sworn affidavit, the girl alleges that Lyons assaulted her 5 times.

Mesa County police said Lyons will be arrested upon his release from hospital.

Hold on lads. . . I’ve got an idea

Daniel Lyons, 34, had a lucky escape when his van careered off a mountain road in Colorado.

In a scene reminiscent of the closing sequence of the movie, The Italian Job, Mr Lyons van’s plunge down the rock face was arrested when it struck a projecting rock and was left teetering on the edge of a precipice.

Emergency services were able to rescue Mr Lyons from the van and manoeuvre him back up the cliff face – from where a helicopter transported him to hospital where he is being treated for minor injuries

‘He’s lucky to be alive’ said Park superintendent Joan Anzelmo.

It is not certain that Mr Lyons shares that opinion. There are rumours that, far from being an accident, Mr Lyons deliberately drove his van off the cliff in a failed suicide attempt – an explanation given some credence by the lack of any skid marks where the vehicle left the road.
