Smart, but not street smart

November 30th, 2012 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

The Independent reports:

She is the internet phenomenon, a Czech-born swimwear model whose website commands a million clicks a month from male admirers around the globe. He  was one of them – a 68-year-old British academic, originally from Kidderminster, who for 11 love-struck weeks believed he was courting on-line the former Miss Bikini World, Denise Milani, and was about to start a new life with her in South America.

This is Ms Milani.

I can understand being 68 and being keen to shack up with the lovely Ms Milani. I less understand how you can possibly think she would be meeting dates through Internet Dating, let alone that she has fallen in love with a 68 year old man she has never met!

Yesterday however, Professor Paul Frampton was sentenced to nearly five years in a notoriously tough Argentinian jail after being found guilty of drug trafficking by a Buenos Aires court – the victim, he claimed, of an elaborate international honey trap set by gangsters pretending to be Miss Milani.

A bit like the Sharon Armstrong case.

He initially travelled to La Paz, Bolivia, thinking he was going to meet her for the first time. Instead he was greeted by a middle-aged man who gave him a suitcase it was claimed belonged to Miss Milani. The following day he flew to Buenos Aires where he was instructed to fly on to the Belgium capital Brussels where he was told he would finally meet his new girlfriend.

Even if one thought Ms Milani was ready and willing to ravish you, then warning bells should definitely have gone off when she doesn’t meet you and some man gives you a suitcase to take through customs!

However, after a 36-hour wait for an e-ticket to be sent to him, he decided to abort the plan and fly back to the USA via Peru. He was arrested at the airport and two kilogrammes of cocaine was found hidden in gift wrapping paper hidden inside the lining of his suitcase.

Pity he didn’t dump the suitcase.

    I didnt think there was another person as stupid as that maori woman from New Plymouth (I think) who went to S America and picked up some so called ‘Books’ for a guy – it was drugs.

    :lol:

    But this should also be tagged sad… He is the architect of his own demise, but I wouldn’t say he deserves it.

    Surely the first thought of anyone, upon seeing that photo, would be “fake”…?

    @barry: I think that may have been the ‘Sharon Armstrong’ case that DPF was referring to… :)

    And THAT is why I’m not gay! [My missus used to be a model...obviously not that model though...but not too bad either.] :cool:

    “….Frampton’s Oxford doctoral thesis analyzed the relationship between current algebra and superconvergence sum rules, and contained a 1967 sum rule. In 1970, he analyzed the absence of ghosts in the dual resonance model.

    Three examples of his model building are the chiral color model, in 1987, which predicts axigluons; the 331 model, in 1992, which can explain the number of quark-lepton generations, and predicts bileptons; his proposal, in 1995, of the binary tetrahedral group as a flavor symmetry. All three serve as targets of opportunity for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In 2002, he built a model relating matter–antimatter asymmetry in the early universe to measurements possible on Earth.

    In formal directions, three examples are that he calculated, in 1976, the rate of vacuum decay in quantum field theory; in 1982, he analyzed ten-dimensional gauge field theory, and its hexagon anomaly, precursor to the first superstring revolution; in 1988, he constructed the Lagrangian which describes the dynamics of the p-adic string.

    For cosmology, two examples are, in 2007, he built a cyclic model which can solve a 75-year-old entropy problem; in 2010, he discussed[2] how dark energy may be better understood by studying temperature and entropy.”

    No wonder the poor sod got taken in after all that lot.

    Dang, I wouldn’t complain about being stuck in Buenos Aires with 2Kg of cocaine.

    No I don’t – not at all.

    I’d be a lot more impressed if your name was Harriet, and you had a missus who used to be a model :-)
    Then maybe you two could put on a show or something.

    Do you even know what a “hypocrate” is, or is that just a big word you’ve picked up from hanging around with the big kids here?

    Let me guess – is it an enormous wooden box, or is it a teeeny tiny wooden box, inadequate for almost any useful purpose? I’ll take the latter for 10 points thanks. kinda appropriate though dontyathink.

    Whatever conclusions might be drawn about Professor Frampton’s behaviour, there is no denying that those are huge tits (albeit not necessarily G**’s original package).

    Cocaine. Big knockers. Quantum field theory.

    Sounds plausible.

    “hypocrate”: noun. small wooden box used for holding glass vials of substances to be used for hypodermic injection. (obs.)

    This story raises access to justice issues in Buenos Aires…

    There are no justice issues in Buenos Aires, Argentina, land of Kirchner’s wretched socialism. :-)
