"Okay, now a silly one!" (photo via The Local)
Earlier this spring, these two Swedish teenage girls robbed a hamburger restaurant (in Swedish, "hamburgerrestaurangen." Yes!) in Halmstad, which I think is where those little widgets that hold up Billy bookcase shelves come from. They covered their faces with balaclavas, grabbed a kitchen knife, and made off with almost $400, which was a lot when I was a teenager.
They might have gotten away with it, too, if not for the fact that one of their phones contained the above photo. The pre-crime selfie. Dead giveaway, ladies. Also, just a thought: wouldn't it be more fun to do a photo after the fact, covered in stolen bills, and then post it to Facebook or something? Those are fun.
