myCFnow | Submitted by: Rio
"Police said a juvenile who was arrested with Konopka told them about the underground stash of cyanide, and they found it in a storage room underneath the Blue Line of the "El" train, under the Dearborn stop, between Washington and Monroe. Police said Konopka is a burglar by trade and had locked the cyanide in the room, changing the locks on the door so that nobody else could enter. Law enforcement authorities said that after Konopka's arrest, they scoured the Chicago Underground Transit system, checking the locks of a thousand doors and storage rooms, and nothing else was found."

Besides, he said, 'She got me to buy Uncle Ben's rice.'" Fantastic.

Copley News Service | Submitted by: Joe Citizen
Lawmakers in Sacramento are alarmed at a subculture around the construction of potato guns, essentially tubes which shoot... potatoes. Never mind that accidents involving potato guns are extremely rare, and that these people aren't bothering anybody. Potato guns promote gun culture and therefore are evil and must be banned. A proposal calls for a fifteen year prison term for merely possessing the relatively harmless devices.

"Andrew WK has been carpeted by the Advertising Standards Authority for having a face that would frighten children and "vulnerable people."
