Hacking is legal in Argentina
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Arguing that the law only covered crimes on people, things and animals and not digital attacks, a federal court declared several Argentines known as "X-Team" innocent of charges they broke into the high court's Web page to accuse judges of covering up a human rights case... "The judge ruled that hacking didn't harm things, people or animals and thus was not covered in the law," Antonio Mille, a lawyer for Microsoft in Argentina, said Monday."

Marathons give you the runs
Guardian | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Like everyone else I had a wad of loo paper in a sweat-proof bag stuffed in my pocket, just in case I had an attack of runner's trots. Intense physical exertion often messes up your digestive system and loosens the bowels which can empty themselves without warning down the back of your legs.

Weed killer creates frog hermaphrodites!
CNN | Submitted by: forcor
A very common pesticide known as atrazine - which is so prevalent that one researcher in this story says "There is virtually no atrazine-free environment," is responsible for frogs developing multiple sex organs, even organs of both sexes. This is affecting the frogs even at 1/30th of the amount that the EPA has approved as safe. Is this chemical dangerous to people? The answer comes in this quote of the day: "I'm not saying it's safe for humans. I'm not saying it's unsafe for humans. All I'm saying is that it makes hermaphrodites of frogs."
