The Weather Seems To Be Making People Do Strange Things

The weather is doing some strange things around Australia on Tuesday, and people are doing some strange things with it.

Exhibit A: It's 35 degrees in Melbourne. That's pretty hot for October.

So hot that some bloke decided to go skinny dipping at St Kilda beach.

FYI, you can't skinny dip there. Note the cop in the foreground radio-ing that in.

Exhibit B: It's only 19 degrees at Two Rocks, north of Perth.

That's pretty cool for October.

Perhaps the unexpected dip in temperatures was behind this man's decision to steer a stolen four-wheel drive straight into the OCEAN.

Police noted the ocean played a significant role in slowing the man down.

FYI, you can't drive there. Note the cops in the sea swimming to get him after this bizarre ending to a police chase.

At least the good folks at the Yanchep Police could see the funny side.
