Man Devises Three Part Strategy for Deterring Burglars: 1, Bulk Up With Muscle, 2, Dress Up Like Thunder God Thor, and 3, Act Like a Frigging Lunatic

As soon as he saw me, his eyes went wide with fear, this home-owner says.

Well. Yeah. He the burglar didn't expect he'd be the second-most psychotic person in that house. I'm pretty sure he was counting on top honors.

Six-foot-tall fitness fanatic Torvald Alexander, 38, was wearing a full God of Thunder outfit - complete with flying red cape and tinfoil silver-winged helmet - when he spotted the raider in his front room rifling through a desk.

Mr Alexander, who runs building firm Alexander & Summers in Edinburgh, Scotland, said the burglar threw himself out of a first-floor window of his 350,000 home in the Inverleith area of the city when he opened the door and confronted him.

The man landed on a roof outside the window, which broke his fall, enabling him to escape.

Mr Alexander said: 'As soon as he saw me, his eyes went wide with terror.

'He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break-in, but he hadn't counted on the God of Thunder living here.

'We were both startled but then the instant reaction was that I ran at him and he just jumped straight out of the window.

'I think I would be quite scared if someone looking almost like a gladiator ran at them.

I don't feel like working out and I don't look good in red, so maybe my strategy will just be to soil myself and start singing gibberish songs about space-herpes.

That should scare someone too.

I will send you to JWF for the picture, which is quite worth the click.
