How's THIS for 'Crazy'!
#1
I just read this in an article, and my mouth dropped open, I laughed and thought, 'Only in Canada do these things happen!'

Check it out:

The Journal de Montreal did some digging on James Awad, the unrepentant impresario who organized the Dec. 30 Sunwing charter flight to Cancun that became notorious for scenes of drunken partying in the aisles. Reporters found that Awad (whose source of income is still not entirely known) has spent more than $6 million systematically buying up luxury homes on a single street in the north of Montreal and then surrounding the properties with bizarre, Romanesque marble statues. “Welcome to Zone 3, a restricted zone in the 111 resort. This zone was built for personal use. Trespassing could result in instant death,” reads the inscription at the base of one such statue.
Fight the Good Fight
(Listen with lyrics here!)
Make it worth the price we pay!
All your life you've been waiting for your chance,
Pray you'll fit into the Plan.
But you're the master of your own destiny,
So give and take the best that you can!

"woke, broke and still a joke"

Lol!  Perhaps this nutbar thinks they will eventually make a movie about his crazy life? Narcissism comes in  few more interesting flavours than just the 'power' one, I guess! (Like remember the basketball star, Rhodman. Not sure if I'm spelling that right. He was crazy, liked being in the spotlight, but it was not about power for him either.)

    Dennis Rodman yes anyone our age should remember this character. I’m not sure if it a statement he made or he actually did it but I believe he wanted to play his last game in the N.B.A. naked (probably didn’t happen. But he did become close friends with South Korea’s fearless leader Kim Jong Un. Again proof that reality is more bizarre than fiction. And if that’s not enough proof how about the longest televised slowest police chase with O.J Simpson. The 90’s were interesting times indeed.

Hah!!

OJ was innocent, yeah. Innocent as sin.

(Did I say dat wrong?!)

The agents trailing that Bronco probably had a bet going on where he was headed!

I bet half of them hoped he would find a nice steep cliff where he could plow through the guardrail, tumble to his death and save the taxpayers a lot of money!

The only thing i remember about Dennis Rodman was that he was once married to Carmen Electra.

  Big huge mistake I mentioned Kim Un Jung as South Korea´s leader. Way off, I meant to say North Korea. Can't believe I made that mistake.

I’ve never heard the term “nutbar” before, but when I first read it I laughed. My mom says “nutjob”, and I would guess that they mean the same thing, but that’s a funny way to say it.
On another note, I could think up a couple different movie plots inspired by this guy, all of his houses, and strange statues.
Maybe one day I’ll come to appreciate yard statues more, but while I can admire them and the work put into making them, I don’t think I’d ever find myself buying any for my own yard.

Once upon a time, I knew a budding doctor whom I was pretty close friends with. She and I were in the on-line community. I actually was challenged to a pizza-eating contest by her younger sister! (I won, but just barely because everyone was rooting for her, rofl!)

My doctor friend had a mischievous spirit, and when she and a few friends would go driving around the countryside, if they came across a garden gnome that caught their eye, they would make plans to come back under cover of darkness, take the gnome, and leave it somewhere not too far away in as embarrassing a pose as possible! (LOL!)

That is quite possible! But it is pretty crazy. He would have paid top-dollar for the first few properties. His presence there has likely lowered the price that anyone could hope to get on their property if they wanted to leave. So if he continues to buy, he will continue to devalue his own properties in the hopes of what -- making a dead zone where there are no normal residents??

For what Purpose other than to devalue his own assets, I don't see a reason for doing that. But if he really values his privacy then maybe that is why.
