Two drunk Navy sailors hail cab, offer to drive, take cabbie on a reckless joyride, go on a beer run, watch the cabbie escape, then torch the cab.

Sailors Aaron Couch, 21, and Terry Gappa, 20, hailed a cab near Chicago's Union Station and told the driver to take them to the Great Lakes Naval Station. As the cabbie was approaching Great Lakes, the sailors told him to pull over and let them take over the cab, or they would kill him, Sheriff's Deputy Chief Kevin Parker said. They did not display a weapon.

The cabdriver, he pulled over on an unknown street sometime before 10 p.m. and Gappa began driving, with the cabbie in the passenger seat and Couch in the back. The men -- who police say already appeared inebriated -- stopped to buy beer.

They then began driving north, while they were driving the cabbie became concerned for his safety, because Gappa was driving erratically. As the cab began to slow near Thoroughbred Drive, the cabbie jumped out and ran to nearby home where police were called, Parker said. Read more.

Two friends shake hands for 9.5 hours, set a new world record

Glad-handing was taken to new heights - or maybe it was a new low - in San Francisco Monday, when two buddies apparently set a new handshaking world record.

The American duo of Kevin Whittaker and Cory Jens gripped hands and waggled them for 9.5 hours, beating the previous record set by two Germans by a half hour.

"My elbow feels like it's about to fall off, but it was worth it," Whittaker said. "Some achievements are marked by small things. That can be a handshake, it can be a trip to the moon or a vaccine that cures a disease. We're part of that. It's epic because it's the first time this has been done in human history."

Creepy, police find 4th severed foot on coast.

Another severed human foot has been discovered washed ashore on Canada's Pacific coast, but police are no closer to solving the gruesome mystery.

The foot, still wearing a shoe, was discovered on Thursday on a small uninhabited island south of Vancouver in the Strait of Georgia, and is the fourth discovered in the region in the past 10 months.

The previous cases all involved right feet still in sneakers, and each was found on a different island. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have not said if the latest discovery was a right or left foot. DNA testing has failed to link the earlier discoveries to any missing person cases.
