Man throws washing machine out of window
A man in Germany has got himself in trouble with the authorities after he threw his washing machine out of his 8th floor window - because he couldn't be bothered to carry it down.
48-year-old Gunther Koenig was, apparently, too lazy to carry the old washing machine down from his eighth floor flat, and so instead took the more direct route of chucking it out of the window for his Freiburg apartment.
The washing machine promptly exploded into hundreds of pieces on impact, scattering debris over a wide area and the road needed to be closed for a short while so that the mess could be cleared up.
Koenig told Local media: 'I don't know what the fuss was about - I checked there was no one underneath before I dropped it.
