Trekkies take over and other strange headlines


From the New York Post:

"The Jets were unable to book a hotel for the team in downtown Indianapolis for their game because there's a Star Trek convention in town and every room is booked."

Maybe they could borrow a transporter and beam themselves in for the game?

Another weird one: An unmarried couple in Bangladesh were forced to marry after getting caught registering for a motel room. "Couples are expected to be married when checking into hotels in conservative Bangladesh."

And another: Some people will do anything for a buck: a blue tutu-wearing, logo-bearing "Canadian spectator plunged into a swimming pool during a diving competition in what appeared to be a publicity stunt for an online casino." Not surprisingly, Olympics organizers have increased security at all sports venues.
