The ability to pick winners has been a much sought after skill since Akk’s cave-mate Erk deduced that the four legs of the Saber Tooth tiger were twice as many as Grok’s two legs. But consider that a handicapper may charge $200 a month to provide bettors with picks, but if these picks win or “hit,” and the bettor can make $600 per month on those winning selections, the handicapper’s fee is well worth it, especially compared to losing on your own. Additionally, stay away from the high pressure sales pitch. The first is that the handicapper you select should be honest and up front with their history as a handicapping professional. Today, in sports betting handicappers develop and employ their own system to determine who has the best chance of winning. You should feel comfortable about whom you have managing your money, and that in essence, is what a handicapper will do for you. Handicappers sell their observations and advice to bettors that would like to increase their chances of winning.

Most people have experienced placing a bet at some point in life but there are those who find great pleasure in the excitement and for some it becomes a favorite pastime. Nowadays, there is much more information to pour over and many factors such as the team’s or individual’s history, trends and the proper way to use the point spread and odds can make the difference between selecting a winner or loser. There are a few things to look for when selecting a handicapper. This observation gave Akk the inside knowledge and statistical analysis to make an educated decision when agreeing to the bet. After all, you are placing these sports betting on the basis of their picks so remember: they work for you and not the other way around.

Sports betting are the attempt to predict the outcome of sporting events by compiling research and analysis to determine a winner. The first is to understand that the average bettor is not going to have the time or the access to complete the necessary research to make winning picks – keeping up with all the numbers is a full time job! Handicappers complete all the research and sell their selections to the general sports betting public. The next thing to consider is the cost associated with employing the services of a handicapper. Erk shared this information with Akk and Akk got the win in sports betting.

Also be wary of any handicapper that use the terms “lock,” or “sure thing,” because any seasoned gambler will tell you – there is no such thing. All of their past picks, performance record of wins and losses and how they determine their picks should be out in the open.

My longest streak was seven in a row and my girlfriend had 11 in a row during basketball season. See the table to the right for a breakdown of the prizes.. Other prizes are available for smaller streaks. If you get it wrong, your streak resets to zero. Many of the picks are not just picking which team will win. Basketball and football include picking ATS (against the spread), which makes the closest thing to actually betting on sports on this list. is a sports betting information website that runs a free streak style contest with a top prize of $100,000. We have found that during basketball season it was much easier to find a good pick than it has been during baseball season.

The ultimate goal is to build a streak of 24 correct picks for the overall grand prize of $100,000. If you get your pick correct, your streak goes up. Each day you can make one pick from a list of games that chooses. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it is a contest that a smart sports fan has a reasonable shot at winning. You do not have to pick everyday, but you must pick once every six days to keep your streak alive.

Only having the option of picking one game a day makes this contest one of my favorites

Patrick’s Day, claiming to have gotten reports of disturbance in the area. Anything lesser is instantly rejected. Blood then frequented the Tower to meet his ‘new friend’ Edwards, who started inviting him to his house for dinner. King Tut Tomb Robberies

Brink’s-MAT Warehouse (1983), 26 million

This was a bank heist with supposed links to Irish political parties, namely the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA). Despite that, it took Howard and his team eight years to document and carefully remove the remaining contents of the tomb, then transporting it to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

Theft of the Irish Crown Jewels (1907)

Hitler’s appetite for destruction knew no bounds. More than 20 criminals have been suspected, with only 8 of them arrested. They started digging a hole from their house to the bank’s floor. Five others have also been arrested, with a few more still on the loose.

Bank/storage Robberies

Very little details about this robbery are known, although speculations arrive at a robbery of 2.9 billion. Edwards was new to the job, and was possibly taken by Blood’s deceitful charm. Indeed, born in 1955, he came to London for the high life, after being wanted in his home, Italy, for 50 instances of armed robberies. She and her crew were supposed to refill the ATMs around the casino in preparation of a busy weekend. The reasons as to why the King did this are not really clear, and is a mystery. They say it’s just for fun, but it’s anything but that for the authorities.

Thieves mostly fail, but some that succeed can continue to live on as legends. Led by Leonardo Notarbartolo, a five-man group infiltrated the vault and got hold of gold, diamonds, and jewelry worth more than US$100 million. When he stopped, he found out that the phone cables have been cut. He oversaw the entire transfer, which was boxes of US$100 notes put into vans.

The Mona Lisa (1911)

People who have nothing to lose (and maybe a little on the kooky side) often come up with the most ingenious things. He found most of it when he stole things. They planned to strike on August 6, the day they knew the bank would be closed. The outer door and its seal was open, and Howard found the insides in complete disarray. The gang of robbers proceeded to the depot, armed with shotguns, handguns, a submachine gun (korpion), and AK-47s, forced their way in and bound and gagged the employees inside. They put a message out on the front door saying that the vault was closed, while letting in more accomplices who were waiting outside. He had previously robbed the Suncoast Casino, and the cops found plans to rob the Caesars Palace in his hotel room. Sometimes it can be truly difficult why someone would go through all that effort for things that actually can’t be sold. An estimate of at least 100,000 works of art have gone missing or not been returned to their rightful owners.

Cops have recovered only about R$8.9 million. The thieves stole a staggering US$500 million worth of art, which has never been found. Bhrle Art Museum on February 10, 2008 and ran off with four of the most valuable paintings in the world. By the time the police confirmed that the print belonged to Viccei, he had left for Latin America. The suspect, Patrick Thomas, was found dead of a gunshot. And even if they kept everything clean, there were very few ways they could have laundered the money. With everything ranging from movies to media coverage or rumors to political cover-ups, our view of crime becomes a bit skewed. The next few years after this, about 6 murders have been connected to the Brink’s-MAT heist somehow. Well it doesn’t get more of an inside job than this! Apparently the crooks had connections with the militia in Baghdad, because they could make a clean getaway without any patrol stopping or checking them. Upon gaining entry to the vaults, they were surprised to find all the gold, and decided to steal it along with the money.

Two accomplices were arrested and sentenced to prison. The first two carriages had only a supervisor and a couple of unarmed employees, while the security was left in the carriages that they had uncoupled.

Antwerp Diamond Center (2003), US$100 million

For taking one dollar without a gun, the judge charged Verone with larceny of a person, not robbery. The paintings by Van Gogh, Czanne, Degas, and Monet, have been valued at a total of US$162 million.

One of the biggest quandaries of art theft is that regular connoisseurs don’t buy stolen art. At the same time, his physical condition was getting worse. It was later concluded that the mastermind of the entire plot was Lee Murray, a reputed mixed martial artist, who was then sentenced to 10 years in prison. The two bankers withdraw 1 million, put it in a bag and hand it over to one of the criminals. The group was led by Bruce Reynolds, who fled to Mexico with his wife and son. Apart from speculations, not much is known about this heist, mostly because of minimal media coverage.

Banco Central, Fortaleza (2005), US$71 million

The authorities received a note in 1931, demanding ransom for the return of the regalia. He was calm, collected, charming, and devious. He apparently seduced the young Heather Tallchief, who did all the work. He tried doing other jobs, but couldn’t keep them. The painting was in quite a vulnerable place (for better public viewing) and was thus stolen. With a host of medical issues like Carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and a growth on his chest, Verone was an ailing 59-year-old with zero cash to treat himself. The room is covered by Doppler sensors, magnetic fields, seismic sensors, IR heat detectors, and probably even more stuff that they haven’t told us. And that was the number in 1984. The money has never been recovered, and William is still reported missing.

Bellagio ‘Bike Bandit’ (2010), US$1.5 million

The ERR has recorded to claim more than 21,000 artwork, most of which was kept in Museum Jeu de Paume in Paris. The bank had already called for the cops, who got there by the time Wells was out of the bank. The basic story is something like this:

On August 28, 2003, Brian Wells was sent to deliver pizza. They gave him a rather ingenious contraption of a sawed-off shotgun that looks like a relatively harmless walking stick. He wore a full black attire with a black helmet. Vicars was still blamed for failing to act promptly when he received the message that the regalia was missing from its safe.

The second time was in August 2004 when masked gunmen stole The Scream along with Munch’s other painting, Madonna. No concrete proof against any individual, let alone the IRA itself, has been found to date. And then some are just bat-crap crazy.

This is the biggest train robbery in history, which happened on Bridego bridge in Ledburn, England. The paintings were feared burned off, until they were recovered in 2006, with repairable damage.

One of the biggest gold bullion robberies in history happened at Brink’s-MAT warehouse, London. It’s not certain exactly who robbed it, or how many robbed it, or where the gold went. When he realized that the Coalition forces were about to bomb Iraq, he ordered his son, Qusay, to go to the bank. He simply started drilling a hole in the thirteen-foot wall! This of course he did alone, which required months of hard work through the nights of winter and into early spring. After he rose to power, he focused on ‘collecting’ as many paintings and other artworks as he could. A movie (Fool’s Gold, 1992) and a documentary were made about the robbery.

The train was stopped at the Sears Crossing, which the robbers realized was too steep to operate the theft on. More than 2-3 billion dollars of trade happens here every year. Vicars even refused to show up for the trial by the Commission, making matters worse. She agreed, but didn’t comply. To carry this loot out, he either took the help of the clergy which he bribed, or possibly friends of his. Viccei would reiterate that he was not in it for the money, he just liked the rush of doing it, claiming that it was even better than sex.

Viccei’s crowning moment was at the Knightsbridge Deposit in the City of Westminster. The investigation went cold later, although efforts were still made even into the 1980s.

Colonel Thomas Blood (1671)

Circus Circus (1993), US$3 million

One-of-a-kind Robberies

They opened as many safe deposit boxes as they could, gathering valuables worth around 60 million. They quickly formed a human chain from the train to the van, and transferred all the sacks and boxes there.

The Mona Lisa was not to be seen for another two years, when the real thief tried to sell the painting to the Uffizi Gallery out of desperation. Meanwhile, the team of crooks included skilled excavators, mathematicians, and drivers to get the real job done. That’s more than 500 million by today’s standards.

John Goddard was walking on a London street with his briefcase, when out of nowhere, a mugger took it from Goddard at knifepoint. The collar had a metal box attached to it, which the assailants claimed was a bomb. The truck was filled with more than US$3 million in cash. The painting bore no damage in its two years of disappearance, during which time the Mona Lisa stayed with Peruggia at his apartment.

This is what happens when a man tries to manipulate the system for gains when he is unable to provide for it himself.

James Verone had lost his job as a Coca-Cola delivery man after 17 years of working for them. They forced open the metal grille that protected the Jewels. Most of the money has not been recovered because they were unmarked bills.

The train’s driver Jack Mills was prompted to stop at 3 AM by an odd red light. She had long left Solis’ company after becoming pregnant with his child, and wanted to support his life.

The idea of the robbery was put forth to the group by an unknown individual who went by the name (or possibly alias) Ulsterman. She was working as a driver for the Loomis Armored Car Company. After his ‘talk’ with the King, he was not only pardoned, but was given a land in Ireland and 500 a year. Most of the gold has not been recovered, and it is speculated that almost all of it was melted off and put into consumer circulation. Which is one of the reasons why all the four paintings have been recovered by 2012 with little to no damage.

The thieves made a run for it, but were caught after a horse chase. So Verone did the thing that – according to his self-proclaimed ‘logical mind’ – he should have done – rob a bank.

One-dollar Robbery (2011)

Knightsbridge Security Deposit (1987), 60 million

Called the biggest cash robbery in the U.K., the guys who pulled it off, left with about 52 million of nothing but cold, hard notes. William was a sports book cashier at the hotel. Another suspect, Keith Cheeseman was jailed for 6 and a half years. Which means a lot of the crooks are out there, enjoying any weather they want, with all that cash to make it more pleasant.

Two major things got in the crooks’ way: one was their lack of planning of what to do after they robbed the place, and the other was the Proceeds of Crime Act. Vicars on the other hand, denied all claims of the theft and openly blamed Francis Shackleton, his second in command. But every once in a while, we come across this rare act that, in its core is bad, but we can only be flat-out impressed about the way it was done. The thieves demanded a ransom of US$1 million, which the museum refused, while aiding a police sting operation to successfully recover the painting.

So old James gets into a bank with nothing but a note that says, “This is a bank robbery. They simply left too many clues that the cops just ate up. Blood made the offer of having his cousin marry one of Edwards’ daughters, promising her quite a decent income by virtue of marriage and thereby gaining complete trust of the Edwardses.

Viccei could possibly have gone scott-free, if it wasn’t for a fingerprint in blood that he left when he got nicked while trying to open a box. When they entered, they subdued the employees and the other guards by pouring petrol over them and threatening to set them on fire if they did not comply. He therefore dared to steal from the inner crypt of the treasury. This included the Central Bank of Iraq. He won’t get to spend much time in prison, so he probably won’t get the full medical attention that he wanted.

It has been said that anyone who wore gold after 1983, was probably wearing Brink’s-MAT gold.

Stardust (1992), US$500,000

The money broker firm Sheppards got their knots twisted really hard in 1990, when a common mugger managed to loot 292 million from them. He died right there.

You know, with all the other robberies that you’ve read about above, you’ll quickly figure out how exasperatingly simple this one was. The main vault of the Diamond Center is located two floors below the ground. They are often charming, exceptionally smart, and even good-looking; sometimes coming very close to their movie and TV counterparts. He solved this problem by sowing hemp seed near the wall. And even if you want to get across all of this, you’re still to start out with a lock system with 100 million possible combinations. He was later hanged for his crime.

The robbery of Banco Central in Fortaleza, Brazil, has to be one of the most deviously orchestrated heists in history. Although they vehemently denied any connections, the media and Government officials still blamed them, claiming that a robbery of such high scale could only be carried out by them. The robbers then uncoupled the engine and the first two carriages from the rest of the train. The Proceeds of Crime Act prompts any bank to flag any cash transfer or deposit beyond a certain amount (usually 10,000). There, they gained the friendship of Talbot Edwards, the Master of the Jewel House. 299 of those bonds have since been recovered, thanks to informants.

The FBI could only track them down to Denver, which happened to be just a pit stop. Blood had to flatten the Crown to hide it under his clothes, and cut down the Sceptre and Orb to make them fit into the small bag.

London City Bonds Robbery (1990), 292 million

Perhaps a story of box-office movie caliber, the life of Valerio Viccei was nothing short of excessive adrenalin-racing. Then they kidnapped his wife and kids. It would even have worked if it wasn’t for one minor glitch; Verone didn’t have a gun.

It is incredibly frustrating when you have people that rob you after you’ve placed all your trust in them. Notarbartolo later claimed that he and the other thieves were set up by a diamond dealer who was looking to claim money off an insurance fraud. But by that time, the masked robbers were already making their way into the engine. They carried the cages full of cash to their truck and ran off. One creepy speculation was that a lot of those people were not really crooks, just kidnapped people who were made to work for the real crooks. They traveled to Bridego Bridge, under which they kept a van. Fingers were pointed, and one of those was straight at French poet Guillaume Apollinaire and his Spanish painter friend, Pablo Picasso. Between dinner preparations, Blood convinced Edwards to show his guests the Crown Jewels. She simply drove off with all the money straight to Solis.

But the crooks did it. This is one of the biggest reasons why crime is so glorified in movies, because it’s sometimes true in real life as well.

The gem district in Antwerp, Belgium, is the place through which 80% of the world’s rough-cut diamonds go through. They supported claims of Wells’ involvement.

Nazi Looting During WW II (1933 to the end of WW II)

Robbing from Royalty

Gardner Museum (1990), US$500 million

The plan was foiled by Edwards’ son, who just got home after finishing his military service. All of this, of course, surrounded by an elite security patrol.

The most famous art theft has to be of the most famous painting in the world: the Mona Lisa. They gave him specific instructions about robbing a bank in Erie, Pennsylvania.

The figure in the painting looks scared for good reason: it is so popular that thieves can’t keep their grubby hands off it.

The first time the painting was stolen was in 1994, during the Winter Olympics. He is currently out on parole, while the whereabouts of the gems is still a mystery.

Three robbers forced entry into the E.G. They successfully ran off with the haul, as it took about an hour for anyone (outside the deposit) to figure out what had happened.

He was made to demand US$250,000, but the cashier gave him far less. So love it or hate it, human greed, ambition, and adventurism will always attempt to reach new heights.

E.G. He and an accomplice walked right in, asking about renting out a safe deposit box for themselves. Wells kept telling the bank employees as well as the police about the bomb around his neck. But it should be noted that because of little or no media coverage or even official documentation, the numbers are all basically gross estimates.

The German Reichsbank held most of the Nazi gold and treasures during World War II. He lived the rest of his life as a legend and died in 1680. The guard Black, his brother-in-law Brian Robinson, and a Micky McAvoy, were all caught and jailed. Carleo left with US$1.5 million worth of chips.

He was arrogant enough to call himself the “Biker Bandit” and the “Cranberry Kid”, because he rode off on a bike, and the US$25,000 cranberry-colored chips that he stole. He claimed to be made the scapegoat by high-ranking officials. He went broke and ended up owing a lot of money to people (mostly the crown itself) who wanted it back. The police called for the bomb squad 30 minutes after the first 9-1-1 call was made. A lot of people were arrested, but had to be let go for lack of evidence.

Dar Es Salaam Bank (2007), US$300 million

The first haul is what the cops called the trial run. The robbers dressed up as police and gained entry to the museum on St. Then, for Hitler’s self-proclaimed artistic taste, the ERR was to “collect” basically anything culturally important that was present in the occupied countries.

We’ve seen the playboys and the determined. No one has been able to prove this; all incriminating evidence points to Notarbartolo and four others. By the time they got there, it was too late. The theft marks the loss of some of the most iconic artworks ever made, including those of names like Rembrandt, Vermeer, Manet, and Degas.

The Scream (1994 and 2004)

Thomas Blood, or Colonel Blood as he liked to call himself, was a devious man. The bomb had exploded, leaving a giant gash in Wells’ chest. An argument is that most of the gold was stolen by Germany from other countries anyway, so they really can’t claim anything. They got away with a total of R$164 million (US$71 million at 2005 exchange rate). One of them hit Mills on the head with a cosh, knocking him unconscious. Qusay gave them a hand-written note from Saddam, that asked for the withdrawal of $920 million. So they had to leave all that cash hidden somewhere. He later claimed a patriotic cause, stating that the painting belonged to Italy, and was hailed for his act. Blood was arrested, but he refused to speak to anyone except the King.

Sinn Fin is the other political party accused for the heist. Here’s how.

They rented out a vacant house two blocks away from the bank three months before the robbery. And when it comes to stealing, some of the most common motivations include the need for money, the need for more money, the desire of an object, or just plain old exhilaration. Twelve years after the incident (September 2005), Heather appears out of nowhere and turns herself in. When they were shown to the vault, the two pulled out their guns on the unsuspecting employees, the manager, and the guards. He notified the security who later concluded that the painting was indeed stolen. They were so meticulous that when the cops first inspected their house, it was covered in burnt lime to destroy any evidence like fingerprints and DNA.

Everyone has their own reason to act. They tricked the guards to step away from their desks and the alarm button, handcuffed, gagged and tied them, then left them in the museum’s basement. When they entered the Jewel Room, the thieves covered Edwards with a cloak, struck him down, bound and gagged him, then stabbed him to keep him quiet. What the thief didn’t know was that the briefcase was full of bonds; bearer bonds. One of the reasons they took 52 million was because the truck couldn’t carry any more; it was full.. Now I don’t know which Looney Toon they got this idea from, but in real life, all that dirt and gravel has to go somewhere right? They even had that covered, by posing as a gardening company! They would literally put the dirt into vans and throw it all far away, while the neighbors would think that was all a part of the gardeners’ ‘job’. The Viceregal Commission which was looking into the matter, blamed Vicars for the theft. It is protected by devices and systems that make the CIA headquarters security fantasy shown in Mission Impossible look like cute little plastic toys. So when they went missing, all of Ireland was in an uproar.

Arthur Vicars, the Officer of Arms at the Dublin Castle, was the first suspect in the case embroiled in mystery and confusion. All it was, was a president and his son, and a piece of paper.

Saddam Hussein was the President of Iraq at the time, and had complete control over the state activities and assets. The incident took place on February 21, 2006, at Kent in South East England.

First, they kidnapped the manager of the depot, Colin Dixon. But there was still the problem of people seeing the large gash in the castle wall. By the time he committed this particular crime, he was already wanted for quite a few others, as well as acts of rebellious discontent.

Blood and a female accomplice posing to be his wife entered the Tower of London under the pretext of viewing the Crown Jewels. The police believe that about 15 people were involved in this robbery. His body was exhumed just to confirm that he had died, and not pulled a trick to escape his recently acquired debts to the Duke of Buckingham.

The scene turns out to be much, much shadier as the cops probe further. The son gained entry to the house, while Talbot Edwards managed to free himself and scream for help with all his strength.

Anthony Carleo walks in to the Bellagio one day and demands the operators of the craps pit to come up with all the chips they have. But one accomplice switched the fake with a real bomb, supposedly as a means to kill Wells so he wouldn’t blow the whistle on them.

The big one came after closing time, for which the two captives were told to stay back at the bank. It’s one of those plots that just keeps getting thicker and thicker the deeper you get. Their final haul was worth 26 million.

The robbers could get in with the help of a security guard, who was the brother-in-law of one of the thieves. He tried returning to England, at which point he was caught and jailed.

The police managed to get back 19.7 million by March 2006. Sometimes they involve robbing their own king’s most valuable treasures.

Richard of Pudlicott was a commoner and a wool merchant by profession.

The theft was first noted by Louis Broud, a painter. Of the few plausible explanations as to how the first two walked in with guns, one speculation is that it was an inside job, from as far inside as the people who ran the place.

Hotel/casino Robberies

As the cops probed further, they found reason to believe that Wells was in on the robbery as well. He was caught when he tried to sell the chips online.

Collar-bomb Robbery (2003), US$8,700

Richard of Pudlicott (1303)

The repercussions of the robbery were quite serious. By the standard of that time, that money was almost equal to an entire year’s worth of tax collection for the entire Kingdom of England! This is how he did it:

Turns out Richard had already stolen from the crown once; a small loot that didn’t last long. It didn’t cover his debt completely, and surely not his desire to live lavishly. They captured and handcuffed him. And each of those 301 bonds were worth around 1 million. He therefore decided to rob the treasury of King Edward I (Edward Longshanks), who was up against the Scottish resistance led by William Wallace (as shown in the movie Braveheart). The robbers intended to steal 3 million cash, but changed their mind when they saw the three tons of gold bullion. But to date, no one has been successfully caught for the heist. Her co-workers took some out to fill an ATM and told her to get the van out in the back of the casino. One guy takes him away, while the others stay with the rest of the family till the robbery is completed. One such crook was Roberto Solis, the mastermind behind the movie-like Circus Circus theft of ATM cash in 1993.

Solis had just gotten out of prison for a robbery attempt, in which he shot and killed a security guard. He hailed the works of painters of Germanic descent and the classics of the Old Masters, while derogated and even ordered to remove or destroy a lot of Modern art, or even art that he didn’t like.

He ordered the formation of the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR), which was controlled by Hermann Gring. Hitler, Goebbels, and Gring frequently visited the museums.

The Great Train Robbery (1963), 2.6 million

The Regalia of the Order of Saint Patrick was one of Ireland’s most prized possessions. The hemp grew quite fast, helping to not only cover the wall, but also lay thick on the ground for him to hide the loot in, while he went back in for more. When he got to the place, three men attacked him, subdued him, and put a metal collar around his neck. Please only give me one dollar.” He then took the dollar and told the cashier that he will sit in a chair next to him and wait for the cops to arrive.

The Reichsbank Robbery

Central Bank of Iraq (2003), US$1 billion

We’ve always admired human determination and ingenuity, even when it was used for all the wrong things. But the detailing in the plan can be denied by no one.

Bank employee Chris Ward gets some uninvited ‘guests’ over, who force their way in and tie up him and his family. That’s exactly what happened, when three guards at the Dar Es Salaam bank ran away with US$300 million. The thief was Vincenzo Peruggia, an employee at the Louvre. Nevertheless, this was one of the weirdest robberies in history, with some who still believe that there are mountains of sacks filled with gold hidden somewhere in Germany, that belonged to the Reichsbank.

Blood was a devious man. On that day, they broke in through the floor, and took whatever they could before anyone could find out and raise an alarm. 301 bits of paper that belong to anyone who is carrying them. But he did come back later, which the police found out and made sure they got him.

Northern Bank (2004), 26.5 million

One of the quietest robberies in any casino’s history, suspected crook William John Brennan simply walked off with $500,000 worth of cash and chips from the Stardust Hotel and Casino. Which is exactly what he did. In a way, it was the painting that made the criminal famous, and it was the theft itself that made the painting even more popular. The underground art dealing world has been valued at billions of dollars annually, but the deals have to be carried out with the tightest of lips and the most firm of handshakes. The police say that this was done just to ensure that nothing stinks for the robbers.

One of the weirdest true incidents of robbery comes from a pizza delivery guy called Brian Wells. Even though half the criminals have been nabbed, the other half, as well as a large sum of money still bathes in mystery.

Blood had Edwards arrange a grand dinner party for him and his ‘cousin’ (another accomplice) along with some other ‘family members’ (more thieves). According to their statement, the thieves had planned to put a fake bomb on his neck, just to provide enough room for him to escape. State-of-the-art security, the best guards from the best private sector security firms in the world, the works. But to get there, he would have to either gain entry through its entrance (and have to face the entire Royal Guard), or somehow go through the wall that protected the loot. Both were held for questioning but were later exonerated.

The Biggest Bank Robbery Ever

Art Robberies

Before Howard Carter discovered the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the tomb had already been broken into twice. Chris is taken to the home of his superior, Kevin McMullan, who was also bound by the other crooks. One of his biggest qualms against art came when he was rejected by the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts as a kid. He turned against his own king to win favor from King Charles II during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms. Viccei was the son of a lawyer and would stop at nothing to fill his life with excitement. 2.6 million was stolen from the traveling Post Office train that night, which is more than 40 million by today’s standards. They did it with such precision that no one could even figure out exactly how they broke in, until Notarbartolo was interviewed personally in jail.

Securitas Depot (2006), 52 million

The theft that happened on March 18, 1990 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is easily the biggest art theft, as well as the biggest theft of property in all of criminal history. Richard took help from the clergy to deal with the guards, then gained entry to the treasury room and made off with about 100,000 pounds. The two bank employees are then given specific instructions and made to go to work the next day as if everything was fine.

Verone thought this was a good idea, and on paper it may have seemed good to him – rob a bank for a small amount of money so the prison term won’t be too long, then go to jail and get medical attention paid for by the Government. Their primary aim was to destroy any and all Jewish art and books. No guns, no gangs, no killing, no planning, no nothing. They soon started to find those treasures with prostitutes and even in the fishing-nets on the river Thames! Most of the treasure was recovered, and after about half a dozen people were wrongly hanged and many more arrested and tortured and questioned, they finally caught Richard, who was quite boastful about it. He claimed that he was the only one involved in the crime and took the full ‘credit’ for the act himself.

All of this was not covered by the media during the War, but got more and more importance after it. He had concluded that more than 60% of the valuables had already been removed from the tomb. They quietly let the robbers in, who made off with more than 25 million.

When the King heard of this, he ordered the crown officials to search for the valuables. When Germany collapsed, the bank became a sitting duck for anyone who knew about it. So it goes without saying that the place is heavily guarded

Bike Racing


Partying is considered as a must for every occasion. Scuba diving, skydiving, parachute-riding, safari expedition, skiing, etc. Though most forms of betting are illegal in many parts of the world, sports-betting is particularly common among youth.

Listening to Music

Online dating has become one of the latest fad. Traveling is indeed a good source of enjoyment, a break from mundane life. We have more options on the television today, more movie theaters, all thanks to the growing entertainment and media industry. Be it watching videos on YouTube, spending time on social networking sites, shopping, dating, or simply surfing the Internet, you never know how you end up spending hours on your laptop/smartphone. Watching movies is one of the favorite pass times of almost everyone today. However, it is the canned and fast food culture which is the culprit for increased obesity in the world.

Eating at Restaurants

Giving time to your hobby, or reading books for pleasure, have reduced as a form of enjoyment today. Food also serves as a comfort many times, and any achievement or a happy moment calls for a visit to a restaurant. However, some movies can have a negative impact on the minds of youngsters, who fail to understand that, in the end, it is mostly fiction.

‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. With the increased use of the Internet, youngsters today no longer want to go out from the confines of their rooms under the bright sunshine. With the improvement in the quality of movies, technology, etc., this is indeed one of the biggest sources of entertainment for everyone. Nothing particularly wrong with this, as long as you do not cause any nuisance to anybody else. True, technology is indeed awesome, and the designers out there who make these games are doing a fabulous job. We see many teenagers who have been victims of drug obsession. Though a traditional media of entertainment, movies are going to stick on for all generations to come. The only concern is that, they should follow all the safety precautions before engaging in this kind of sport. Gone are those days when they preferred going outdoors for a game. However, too much of anything is certainly bad. While these days the youth have many more facilities than earlier generations, cut-throat competition is making them seek enjoyment in negative modes.

Nightlife: Clubbing

Playing Video Games

We all have our headphones continuously plugged into our ears. On the other hand, it is equally important that we avoid listening to music while driving (earphones, headphones).

Movies are a must-plan on almost every weekend. Virtual life can be so addictive, that sometimes they tend to forget to breathe fresh air itself. The entertainment and enjoyment preserved for our weekends are the biggest sources of stress-busters for us. But today, thanks to technology and communication, the modes of entertainment have multiplied like never before. But loud music is not recommended, since it can damage our hearing. Also, nightlife today is mostly filled with drugs, drinking, and smoking.

Internet: The King of All Entertainment Sources

Gambling is also considered as enjoyment by many. In addendum, the Internet has created a revolution in our lives.

Watching a game with friends is one of the greatest entertainment sources around. The modern definition of enjoying includes letting your hair down, forgetting your senses, and living the moment. Be it for knowledge or entertainment, its certainly at the top in the list of enjoyment. It is completely alright if it is done in moderation. Of course, music is the biggest stress-buster. In this competitive world, we all have to slog hard to make our living. Also, there are many cases of youth involved in drinking and driving, a dangerous preposition indeed.

Shopping Spree

The fast food culture is one of the biggest menaces these days. For today’s youth, it is simply ‘Work Hard, Party Harder’. While obsession with anything is an issue, the youth today are using it as an escape route from their problems.

Today, the Internet rules our lives. The concepts of enjoyment for youth has changed a lot due to the aforesaid reasons. This is certainly a negative impact of today’s stress and competition.

There are increasing number of youngsters who engage in watching porn.

This is the ruler of all sources of entertainment. Sometimes, the virtual world is used as an escape route from one’s problems.

Watching Movies

Shopping is considered to be a stress-buster by many, and being fashionable is considered a minimal requirement. With increased stress, we all want to seek solace somewhere. Youngsters should remember that ‘Speed Thrills, but Also Kills’.

Internet Rocks!. Today’s youth relies a lot on the Internet. It is indeed a powerful medium to reach millions in a fraction of a second.

Watching Television

Any occasion calls for alcohol these days. We all are dependent on the Internet, not only for knowledge, but also for entertainment. However, youngsters today also seeks thrill and adventure. Sadly, partying, drinking, smoking, drugs, etc., has increased in the life of youth these days. This is also the reason why sports, these days, are so highly commercialized, with the real spirit of sportsmanship going for a toss.

Well, this is one form of de-stressing for many out there. A brisk walk, a chat with neighbors, gardening, reading books, or nurturing a hobby, have almost become redundant today.

Online Dating

Yet, what do you mean by enjoyment? What is your concept of enjoyment? Of course, we seek pleasure in different activities, and the definition of enjoyment is different for everyone. Yet, the youth today tend to forget the importance of living out in the ‘real world’. Online dating is not bad per se, yet, one should not forget the risks of disclosing your personal details to an unidentified person or stranger.

Adventure and Traveling


Smoking and intake of drugs is also considered as ‘enjoyment’ by many youth today. Today, almost no office can run without the Internet. In earlier times, there were very limited sources of enjoyment, hence, meeting family and friends, playing indoor and outdoor games, planning a picnic, etc., were the common sources of enjoyment. Again, food is a mode of celebration in all cultures. Everyone is obsessed with fashion, and being outdated in your dressing style is looked down by almost everyone.

Now, this is enjoyment for those who love experiencing thrill. – these days everyone wants to have some fun-filled action in their lives.

Today’s youth are almost addicted to video games. Of course, some do end up in meeting the soulmates of their lives. Yet, they tend to forget that staying up late is unhealthy. However, as generations change, media of entertainment also change. Of course, with so many sports channels to surf through, this task has just become easier. Smoking may be taken up due to peer pressure. However, heavy drinking will abuse your body in the long run. Clubbing and nightlife has become an important part of today’s lifestyle
