Ji Jingyu, a 48-year-old stuntman, from China, is walking barefoot on a giant knife, during a performance, in a park in Nanjing. I knew China hosts some really weird events.

But I don’t see how it can get any more bad ass then a dude walking on the sharp edge of a custom made giant knife.

This epic annual event took place on May 2.

A Florida man police say wore an elaborate mask to rob several banks and businesses in the Tri-State over the past month is behind bars on a $3 million bond.

Conrad Zdzierak, 30, was arraigned Thursday morning on six counts of aggravated robbery in Hamilton County court.

Acting on a tip, officers from several departments served a search warrant at the Extended Stay America Hotel at 320 Glensprings Drive in Springdale Wednesday afternoon where they arrested Zdzierak.

Officers discovered a red dye pack from a bank had exploded inside a vehicle that belongs to Zdzierak.

Police then tried to enter Zdzierak’s room, but were encountered by a dog that bit one of the officers, prompting one of them to fire their gun.

Once inside, officers discovered evidence, including a Hollywood-style mask linking Zdzierak to six robberies.

“The suspect seen in the surveillance photographs and that we were looking for, we believed to be an African American male. The suspect was actually a male, white, who was wearing an elaborate disguise,” said Lieutenant Michael Mathis with the Springdale Police Department.

Springdale police says they have never seen such an elaborate mask.

Police say Zdzierak committed five of the robberies last Friday, April 9.

Investigators say Zdzierak would hand a note to an employee indicating he had a gun and demanded cash.

According to police, Zdzierak has been living in the Springdale hotel for the last year.

The robberies Zdzierak is charged with are:

  • March 5 – Chaco Bank, 1143 Smiley, Forest Park, Ohio
  • April 9 – Key Bank, 8457 Winton Road, Springfield Township, Ohio
  • April 9 – Fifth Third Bank, 10595 Springfield Pike, Woodlawn, Ohio
  • April 9 – Key Bank, 11355 Princeton Pike, Springdale, Ohio
  • April 9 – CVS Pharmacy, 11601 Springfield Pike, Springdale, Ohio
  • April 9 – Franklin Savings, 1100 West Kemper Road, Forest Park, Ohio

Rohan Ajit Kokane, a Class III student from St. Xavier’s High School of Belgaum, successfully cleared the Guinness World Record attempt in blindfold limbo skating by passing under a car blindfolded in Hubli on Friday.

Unfazed by the failure of the first two attempts, Rohan passed under the car (clearing a height of 6.75 inches) with ease in his third and final attempt to create a new Guinness Record in a new category.

As the sun was setting, the crowd mainly comprising engineering students of BVB College of Engineering and Technology, cheered Rohan chanting his name.

As the name “Rohan” reverberated in the air, the boy cleared the record attempt. As the crowd applauded him with a standing ovation, tears of happiness rolled down the eyes of Anupama, Rohan’s mother, while the proud father Ajit stood speechless for a moment.

Then it was celebration time with students entering the basketball ring where the record attempt was made to greet the achiever. Meanwhile, the crowd continued clapping for as principal of BVB College Ashok Shettar greeted the boy with a bouquet and memento.

When reporters asked Rohan how he felt, he said “Achcha lagta hai” (It feels good). And, he didn’t forget to thank his parents and coach for his achievement.

The record attempt was organised as part of a national-level technical festival “Pleiades”.

As per the Guinness Record authorities, the organisers got the entire event recorded. They would send the video recording to the authorities for verification. The authorities would then declare whether it is Guinness Record or not.
