As(s)-inine inmate | First World Problems
Convicted triple-murder inmate Kon Georgiou, housed in Australia's Goulburn Jail, was charged in February with hiding a cellphone in his rectum, but managed to hold out for 12 days (almost 300 hours) before finally "releasing" the evidence. Guards, certain it was a phone on the X-ray (and not the residue from recent surgery that Georgiou claimed), had confidently resisted "going in" after it.



At an estate sale in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, in February, a couple in Wilmington bid successfully on Delaware license plate number "14," which went for $325,000. According to WCAU-TV's report, paying exorbitant sums for low license plate numbers "is a Delaware thing" (and has been mentioned in News of the Weird previously).
