6 feet in Canada

5 right feet - better than 2 left ones I suppose.

This story is so strange you just couldn't make it up!!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7463305.stm

"The feet have all been recovered along the shorelines in the Strait of Georgia, which lies to the south and west of Vancouver.
They were all encased in trainers, and five out of the six are right feet. Police say it is not yet clear if a crime had been committed. They said they had found no evidence that the feet had been severed."

Just be careful when you are beachcombing - unless you happen to be a one legged mountie............

I'm curious about the brand of trainers, since I never seem to get more than 4 months out of a pair.

"Police say they have found no evidence of the feet being severed and that it is not clear whether a crime has been committed. "

This remainds me of a story some time ago where a guy was found with 6 gunshot wounds... and police suspected suicide.

If that was the case, apart from being a bad shot, you have to admire his persistence...

missing young men

When there have been 9 young men go "missing" in the past 2 years, it makes you stop and wonder if there is a bigger story here.

I was just in Campbell river this past week and this is the talk of the town. I was at Roger's lodge with a Canadian fish and game fellow and he mentioned how strange that was.

Unfortunately, I did not take my RIB up there and I regret it. Twice we had to turn back due to my friends 18 foot aluminum boat not being to handle the water.

Beauty, eh?

funny that when beach combing you all ways seem to find trainers or shoes that seem to be all left footers on one beach and right footers on another you never seem to find a pair that match on the same beach .not that i would want them just a observation .

Hmmm. A foot is found. No body. Police say there's no evidence of the foot being severed?

Isn't a foot all by its lonesome pretty compelling evidence of its being severed? It's certainly not still attached.



There was a cartoon in the paper the other day (Bizarro, I think it was) that had two guys out in the snow; one kneeling down inspecting something and the other standing nearby. Caption read "Canadian CSI". The guy kneeling said "It's a boot." The other said "It's aboot what?" [Sorry, Stoo.]
