    Actually I think Vibranium is a sound dampener.

    From yahoo news

    The local news story on the crime, by David Pierce at InsideNova.com, is an absolute must read. Apparently, the cow-suited criminal escaped the megastore by crawling out the doors, "trying to emulate cattle." He then began handing out the stolen jugs right outside the store before making his escape, in a sort of bovine interpretation of Robin Hood.

    The man's apprehension by the police is by far the best part of the story:

    Stafford County sheriffs said they went to a nearby McDonald's restaurant for a disturbance call, and the responding officer saw a man--not in a cow suit--there that seemed to match the culprit.

    The suspect was taken back to the Walmart, and management confirmed he was the thief of the pasteurized potion.

    The cow suit was found in the man's car, Kennedy said.

    How did the police officer recognize the thief in non-cow clothing?

    Stafford County Sheriff's office spokesman, Bill Kennedy, tells us that he believes the cow suit did not entirely cover the suspect's face, making him easy to spot at the near-by McDonalds.

    "I gotta tell you it's our first cow shoplifter," Kennedy said of the unusual crime.

    He chaffed at our Robin Hood comparison."Problem is, Robin Hood broke the law," he said. "You just can't do that."

    The man was given a summons to appear before court on shoplifting charges.

    I hope jp wasn't in North Shore today.

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/4956336/Tornado-strikes-Auckland-leaves-trail-of-destruction

    Early reports are that the Albany Megacentre shopping mall roof has collapsed and cars have been tossed aside. North Shore police confirmed there were "numerous injuries" caused by the tornado.

    A North Shore police spokesman said emergency services were busy fielding calls from the public with reports of damage to homes and cars.

    The spokesman said it was too early to say how many people had been hurt, but there were calls reporting ''numerous'' injured people.
