This is cool..

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -- A tour group of U.S. senior citizens fought off a band of muggers in eastern Costa Rica, sending two of the assailants fleeing and killing a third, police said Thursday.

One of the tourists -- a retired U.S. serviceman whom officials estimated was in his 70s -- allegedly put Warner Segura in a headlock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus Wednesday, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose.

The Americans had arrived in Limon on the Carnival Cruise Lines ship Carnival Liberty.

"It was a group of 12 senior citizens from the United States who were going to spend a few hours in the area, but their tour bus entered a dangerous sector known as Cieneguita", Hernandez said.

The tourists drove Segura to the local Red Cross branch, but he was declared dead, Hernandez said. He declined to give the names or hometowns of the tourists.

The Red Cross also treated one of the tourists for an anxiety attack, Hernandez said.

Costa Rican authorities said they did not plan to file charges against the tourists, who left on their cruise ship after the incident.

"They were in their right to defend themselves after being held up," Hernandez said.

Hernandez said Segura had previous charges against him for assaults.

An older, white haired man walked into a jewelrystore one Friday

evening with a beautiful young gal at his side.

He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his

girlfriend.


The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.


The old man said, "No, I'd like to see something more special."

At that statement, The jeweler went to his special stock and brought

another ring over. "Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000" the jeweler

said.


The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with

excitement. The old man seeing this said, "We'll take it."


The jeweler asked how payment would be made and

the old man stated, "by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify
the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon," he said.



Monday morning, the jeweler phoned the old man. "There's no money in

that account."


"I know," said the old man, "But let me tell you about my weekend!





Don't mess with Old People.:D

You can die from a broken collarbone?

I bet that guy was a former SEAL and quietly pinched off the guy's jugular while he was in the headlock.
