Dead baby lost in laundry
BBC | Submitted by: Brrrrrett
"A mortuary technician is being 'closely supervised' after the body of a baby boy was lost in a hospital's laundry. The remains of baby James Fernandez were put through a 95F wash after he went missing from Queen Mary's Hospital, in Sidcup, Kent." Why, anyone could make this honest mistake. What's worse is, the baby was broken in the process: "I was horrified. I asked whether James was in one piece and he told me that he was but had suffered lots of fractures."

"You just have to wonder: If the tens of thousands of law enforcement officers, the millions of man-hours, and the billions of dollars that were spent monitoring, investigating, arresting, charging, processing, jailing, and bringing to trial non-violent marijuana users had been used, instead, for anti-terrorist activities -- could the September 11 atrocity have been prevented?"

Musth
University of Natal, Durban | Submitted by: Soylent
"The most perplexing aspect of musth is the continual streaming of urine down the legs of the males. It seems incredible wasteful for gallons of liquids to flow out of an animal that spends most of its time walking between water holes. Besides the waste, there is always the risk of infection, especially seeing the penis becomes coated in an algal layer, giving it a green sheen, and resulting in the nickname of GP-syndrome, or green penis syndrome of the highest level of musth."
