Boy raised by chimps
News Corporation | Submitted by: mark knipe
"When he was first brought in, Bello, who is about the size and weight of a four-year-old, walked in a chimpanzee-like fashion, moving on his hind legs but dragging his arms on the ground...

New Scientist | Submitted by: Polymorf

It is accompanied by significant delays in language, and an inability to interact normally with others."

Sewage truck explodes
Otago Daily Times | Submitted by: Melisande
"Inner city traffic was showered with effluent [the polite word for mostly fecal matter] and hydrogen peroxide after the back end of a septic tank vacuum truck exploded in Dunedin yesterday. The explosion, which could heard and felt several blocks away, blew out a window at the nearby Leviathan Hotel and sent a metal sluice valve flying about 15m into the windscreen of a parked car." Fantastic picture of the brown aftermath.

Picture of the day
News of the World | Submitted by: Wessoman
This article isn't all that interesting or unusual. But in the upper right is a picture of a little girl: "A protestor at an anti-Israeli demo in Berlin resses his daughter up as a suicide bomber - her tiny body strapped with sticks of pretend TNT..."
