    The larger-than-life Bowie knife was unveiled on Thursday in a park in Bowie – a small North Texas town (pop: just over 5,000 residents) north of Fort Worth, off U.S. 81. The sculpture features some admirable measurements. The entire object is 20 feet, 6 inches long and weighs 3,000 pounds. The blade is made of stainless steel. The monument was designed to tolerate winds up to 90 miles per hour, an inch of ice and seismic activity. The project almost didn’t come to pass. Fundraising for the Bowie Knife Project started in 2013. However, by the end of 2014, organizers...
  • 'Crocodile Dundee' star seeks Swiss millions

    "Crocodile Dundee" star Paul Hogan has taken legal action in a US court to recover $34 million held in a Swiss bank account which he alleges has been misappropriated, reports said Monday. The Australian, who was catapulted to stardom by the success of the 1986 film about the laconic, knife-wielding crocodile hunter, says his once-trusted tax advisor has disappeared with the cash. The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Californian district court documents allege Philip Egglishaw "absconded with or spent all" of Hogan's millions, in a filing by the actor's representative, Schuyler "Sky" Moore. The money was held at the Corner...

    PAUL Hogan has come out fighting against the tax man, declaring he will risk bankruptcy before he pays. Against his lawyer's advice, Hogan spoke for the first time last night - proving he hasn't lost his sense of humour despite being made a virtual prisoner in Australia. The Aussie larrikin said he didn't owe the Australian Tax Office anything and couldn't afford to pay their bill anyway. Who do you believe - Hoges or the tax office? Let us know in the comments below. "I can't pay it, I can't pay 10 per cent of what they are asking for,"...

    <p>A DEFIANT Paul Hogan had a typically plain-spoken and blunt message for the Australian Taxation Office yesterday: "Come and get me, you miserable bastards."</p> <p>As the ATO enlisted the help of the Internal Revenue Service in the US to pursue the actor for allegedly undisclosed tax liabilities, a bemused Hogan insisted he had paid more than enough tax - a figure he estimated to be in excess of $100million - in Australia.</p>

    Florida convenience store heist attempt features dueling machetes...NOVEMBER 15--In a Crocodile Dundee-like moment, a Florida convenience store clerk repelled a machete-wielding robber by pulling out her own machete from behind the store's counter, a faceoff captured by a store surveillance camera. On Tuesday, a man wearing a blue sweatshirt and baggy jeans approached the counter of the Lil' Saints store in Stuart and pulled the weapon from his pants. After he moved away from the counter for a moment, clerk Guillermina Sanchez 46, grabbed her machete from under the cash register. After a 20-second standoff (during which time the man...
