    • July 7, 2005 -- Ruth Stewart celebrated her 100th birthday in the fast lane — strapping on a helmet and riding on the back of a Harley. "If I were 20 years younger, I would buy one," said the retired music teacher from Stroughton, Wis., who was taken for a 33-mph, three-mile trip by Richard Ireland, 62. "It could have been a lot faster. Next time, when he comes back, I'll go 50. That will be fun."

        • July 8, 2005 -- A lovestruck goofball proved how hot he was for his girlfriend — by lighting himself on fire and proposing. First, Todd Grannis, 38, of Grants Pass, Ore., set his gas-soaked cape ablaze and jumped into a swimming pool. Emerging unscathed, he got down on one knee, produced a ring and said to Malissa Kusiek, "Honey, you make me hot. I'm on fire for you." "At first, I was mad, because I thought, 'He's not a stuntman,' " Kusiek said. "Then, of course, the tears started flowing. Of course I said yes. I was so thrilled."

          • July 9, 2005 -- Lazy shepherding was the cause of a massive 1,500-sheep pileup in eastern Turkey this week — the huge herd of chops-to-be went tumbling into a ravine, killing hundreds of the wooly wanderers. Some 400 sheep started the spill when they walked over a nearly 50-foot cliff. They all died, but they then broke the fall for another 1,100 who followed them down and landed safely. Local media said that instead of watching their sheep, shepherds from the area stopped for breakfast.

                  • July 12, 2005 -- Call this guy Houdini. A vandalism suspect, handcuffed behind his back, stunned cops in Highland Park, Mich., when he managed to drive their patrol car away and escape. He's still at large. "It's happened before. This gentleman has a rather small frame, about 5 feet, 7 inches, and if the cuffs are not on tight, they can slip off," said Deputy Chief Robert Dickerson.

                      • July 13, 2005 -- Officials in East Chicago turned off a streetlight after hundreds of people began crowding around it, claiming it cast the shadow of Jesus Christ. "The city respects everyone's religious beliefs, but it's getting to the point now where it's almost too dangerous," said city spokesman Damian Rico, who noted that cops had to bust up a brawl that broke out at the site and also deal with blocked cars.

                        • July 14, 2005 -- Juren Ding finally got the lake view he always wanted — but he may go to jail for it. Authorities say the 39-year-old Minneapolis homeowner chopped down 37 trees — worth nearly $22,000 — in a city park so he could have unobstructed views of Anderson Lake. "He didn't seem to think there was anything wrong," fumed city Parks Manager Stuart Fox. "I asked him what a fence means to him." Ding could face five years in jail — where the views are notoriously lousy.

                          • July 15, 2005 -- Motorists in Dallas were scared stiff when a corpse fell from the back of a mortuary truck and into the path of oncoming traffic. "The driver of the truck was not aware that he had lost the body," police Lt. Rick Andrews said. "He saw the open door. He stopped and looked. He turned around, went back and retraced his steps and found the body." Driver Mary Ellen Douglas, who witnessed the macabre incident, said: "I wanted to get out of there. It was too freaky for me."

                              • July 16, 2005 -- Former Brooklynite Bruno Filippelli, a retiree living in Delray Beach, Fla., turned in an old Japanese rifle that had been collecting dust in his closet during a police gun-buy-back program. The World War II Navy veteran was pretty pleased with the $75 department-store gift card he got in exchange for the weapon he had bought more than 50 years ago for two packs of cigarettes — until a gun expert reported it was a rare Arisaka Type 99 rifle worth about $5,000. Filippelli, 79, is now trying to get cops to abandon plans to melt down the gun with 450 other weapons acquired in the buy-back drive.
