While scrolling through the MSN website, I came across this story: http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/%e2%80%98naked%e2%80%99-canadian-trekkers-detained-in-malaysia-are-%e2%80%98really-well-behaved%e2%80%99-friend-says/ar-BBkWyLD
It’s a story of some Canadian trekkers going for a hike on Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia. Apparently during their hike, some of the hikers stripped to various states of undress. The result? Two Saskatchewan siblings are being detained as authorities spend four days investigating their alleged crime of obscenity: posing naked for a photo on the peak of the sacred Mount Kinabalu and angering its spirit guardians into triggering an earthquake that killed 18 mountaineers.
Yes you read that right. Naked hikers cause earthquakes.
I would absolutely love to get my hands on the report (if there is such a thing) written by the authorities as to how they determined that the naked Canadian hikers were the cause of an earthquake. I think that would make for the most amazing reading ever.
The good news is that it sounds like the hikers will be able to get away with a fine instead of imprisonment. That will determine whether or not I label this as a tragedy or a comedy.
