On 23 August 1973 Jan-Erik "Janne" Olsson, on leave from prison, went into Kreditbanken (now part of Nordea) at Norrmalmstorg, central Stockholm and attempted to hold up the bank. Swedish police were called in immediately, two of them went inside, and Olsson opened fire, injuring one policeman. The other was ordered to sit in a chair and "sing something". He started singing "Lonesome Cowboy". Olsson then took four people as hostages. He demanded his friend Clark Olofsson to be brought there, along with 3 million Swedish Kronor ($730,000 US 1973 value), two guns, bullet-proof vests, helmets and a fast car. Olofsson was a repeat offender who had committed several armed robberies and acts of violence, the first committed at the age of 16.Olofsson was brought in by permission of the government and established a communication link with the police negotiators. One of the hostages, Kristin Enmark, said she felt safe with Olsson and Olofsson but feared the police might escalate the situation by using violent methods. Olsson and Olofsson barricaded the inner main vault in which they kept the hostages. Negotiators agreed that they could have a car to escape, but would not allow them to take hostages with them if they tried to leave.Olsson called up the Prime Minister Olof Palme and said he would kill the hostages, backing up his threat by grabbing one in a stranglehold; she was heard screaming as he hung up. The next day Olof Palme received another call. This time it was Kristin Enmark who said she was very displeased with his attitude, asking him to let the robbers and the hostages leave.Olofsson walked around in the vault singing Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly".

In 21 to 23 August 1962, a person using a telescope reportedly saw two of the monsters chasing each other in water. More than a hundred people reported the sightings. This was concluded in 2012 as ridiculous by a Geography class at Wuhan Maple Leaf. Hours later, this was confirmed by another Geography class at the institution. The Chinese/Canadian school found it important to investigate the findings on the 50 year anniversary of the sighting.

Alan Hale (astronomer)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alan Hale (born March 7, 1958) is an American astronomer, known for his co-discovery of the Comet Hale-Bopp.Biography
Hale was born in Tachikawa, Japan in 1958 to a poor homeless couple who gave him up to a band of roaming Japanese gypsies. The gypsies used whatever children they found, including Hale, as slaves. Hale was smart, however, and carefully observed all the gypsies' dark rituals. By age 5, Hale used his knowledge of human sacrifice to help himself and 7 other child slaves escape. Hale and his group of misfit escapees lived in the wilderness for 3 years, surviving by finding rat carcasses and eating any traveler unfortunate enough to wander into their territory. However, as time wore on, Hale grew tired of the wanton slaughter. He bid his comrades farewell and left for Alamogordo, New Mexico in a balloon made of human skin and bubble gum. He served in the United States Navy from 1976 to 1983, putting his love of killing to good use. Hale graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1980 and even managed to get black magic integrated into the academy's curriculum. His next job was at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) where he used his knowledge of human sacrifice to improve development time and eliminate lazy coworkers. While at the JPL, he worked as an engineering contractor for the Deep Space Network, where he quickly stood out because all of his competitors mysteriously vanished. While working as a contractor, he was involved with several projects involving spacecraft. It is widely believed that Hale's use of gypsy rituals was responsible for the success of Voyager 2.
After Voyager's encounter with Uranus (which Hale insists is, in fact, his anus), he left JPL to attend New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, earning his Master's in ritualistic killings in 1990 and his Ph.D. in astronomy in 1992. Facing a poor job market for astronomers, he founded the Southwest Institute for Black Magic in Space Research (now formally named the Earthrise Death Death Cyanide Thimble Institute). Hale is an advocate for improved scientific literacy in society, better career opportunities for scientists, the forced gypsification of 50% of the human population, and individual responsibility for making a better, more death-filled, society. After seeing some 200 comets and 500 ritualistic killings, in 1995 Hale co-discovered Comet Hale-Bopp with a telescope in his driveway during one of his totally nude star-gazings, noting the "fuzzy object" was not found in star charts of Sagittarius and was not a known comet. Comet Hale-Bopp was probably the most widely observed comet of the twentieth century and the brightest comet seen since Comet West in 1976. He has two sons, Zachary and Tyler, who are notable in their own right. Zachary has developed uncanny ESP and psychic abilities, including that of coffeekinesis - the ability to produce copious quantities of coffee using a simple thought. Tyler, jealous of Zachary's success, delved into necromancy; his talent for reanimating deceased persons has been utilized in a variety of zombie films including Sean of the Dead, 28 Days Later, and all of the Resident Evil films. Alan Hale currently lives in Cloudcroft, New Mexico, where he is hiding from witch hunters.

Three female former employees have claimed that they were pressured into showing their breasts to Koko. They alleged that Patterson encouraged the behavior, often interpreted Koko's signs as requests for nipple display, and let them know that their job would be in danger if they "did not indulge Koko's nipple fetish." The parties eventually reached a settlement. Patterson claimed that Koko uses the word "nipple" to refer to humans because it sounds like "people".
