I suspect that this chap might just have attended the same College of Burglary as the gent mentioned above...

Repentant Brecon burglar returned laptop

A repentant burglar who stole a laptop from the wrong house was caught after he returned it, a court has heard.

Gareth James, 41, broke into a house in Brecon, Powys, believing it was the home of someone who owed him 400.

But when he opened the laptop he stole, he saw the wrong name on the screen, Merthyr Crown Court was told.

James, of Llanfaes, near Brecon, admitted burglary and was jailed for four months, suspended for a year.
'Felt embarrassed'

Prosecutor Rachel Knight told how James confessed to a barmaid at the Boar's Head pub about his crime.

Miss Knight said: "He told her he had done something stupid. He felt embarrassed he had gone into the wrong house."

James told her he had gone into the house thinking that the occupier owed him 400 for building work but his only intention was to keep the laptop until he paid up.

But when he saw the wrong name he realised he had gone into the wrong house.

He was caught and arrested when he went back to return the laptop, letting himself in through an open door.

Sentencing him, Judge Richard Twomlow jailed James for four months suspended for 12 months with supervision and ordered him to complete the thinking skills programme.
The last thing we need is a burglar with 'thinking skills'.

At 41, I'm pretty sure the Thinking Skills ship has sailed for Mr. James.

Looks like it was set up by Dr Seuss.

I can see risk in the tree trimmer's task. But I can also imagine doing it safely. Securing oneself to the tree, securing the ladders to the tree, securing the chainsaw to the tree, securing the soon to be trimmed branches to the tree, it's all possible.

It looks like he's wearing a climbing harness, there appear to be ropes hanging down, there appears to be a horizontal line across the large section of the trunk close to where he's working. It's possible to minimize the risks here to top and remove a tall tree like this. It's also possible he's an idiot, but it doesn't quite look like it from here.
