Military enthusiast parks World War I tank outside his home


A military enthusiast has parked a World War I tank outside his home in Cottenham, Cambridge, ahead of next year’s centenary of the start of the Great War.

Anthony Cooke left the six-and-a-half tonne vehicle in his drive to the surprise of his neighbours, although he said they appreciated the piece of memorabilia.

‘People do get a shock when they first see the tank in the middle of a residential estate,’ the 57-year-old said.

‘But I’m very lucky as my neighbours love it and one little boy even says good night to it each evening.

‘It takes up my entire drive and I now have to park my car down the road, but it’s worth it as it will look great when it is finished.’

Mr Cooke spent seven months finishing the outside of the 13ft-wide Mark IV tank, which cost him an estimated £40,000 to purchase and complete.

‘Naked and Scared Challenge’ Shut Down by Police

SINKING SPRING, PA — Authorities in a small eastern Pennsylvania community have asked organizers of the “Naked and Scared” challenge to keep their clothes on.

Shocktoberfest owner Patrick Konopelski told The Huffington Post he has been asked to not allow customers to participate in the naked walk-through of the haunted house.

The challenge was originally inspired by the Discovery Channel’s hit show “Naked and Afraid.”

Organizers had planned to allow visitors to either go through the haunted house totally nude or with undergarments. The attraction would have taken place at the end of the night after all other customers have gone through the haunted house.

Other Shocktoberfest events will go on as scheduled.

Once more into the time machine, my dear music fanatics, for we have yet another reissue to unpack and pore over. This one, like so many others, is chockfull of new liner notes, demos, B-sides, and even live material from the album’s era, enough to push über-fans to grind their teeth with anticipation. This particular anniversary reissue is for the disciples of Kurt Cobain, and it comes in the form of In Utero. Yes, Nirvana’s final studio album just turned 20 years old. If the number of years between then and now doesn’t blow your mind, how about the fact that some people will read this review that weren’t even born when In Utero was released on September 13, 1993? Not enough?…
