"Prisoner Slims Down and Out" of Prison

Robert Cole, a prisoner serving in Sydney, Australia's maximum security Long Bay prison, escaped prison by relentlessly dieting until he could slip through a crack he etched between the outer brick wall and metal prison window bar.  In total, authorities estimate that he lost about 30 lbs. He's still missing, and locating him will be especially challenging.  After all, when he turns sideways, he disappears.  Scroll down to the "Down and Out" link from to watch the video. [Mark Godsey]
