STRING FLING 

   [The following story is taken from this week's Featured 
    Web Site] 

   "An 80-year-old man in Frankfurt-on-Main protected himself 
    from thieves in an amazingly simple way by attaching his 
   wallet to his jacket with 2 metres of string. This safety measure 
   worked excellently. Immediately after a pickpocket's attack 
   the thief tried to flee but was captured by the crowd, since the 
   clever old pensioner had attached a little bell to the string to 
   draw attention to his situation."
