Turkish trophy head repatriated
Melbourne Herald Sun | Submitted by: Alista
Most war veterans only return home with memories, but this Australian WWI solider decided to bring back something a little different "The sturdy pine box, lined in a rich crimson velvet, held a hideous trophy: a skull, complete with bullet hole. Its teeth protruded, but the eyes and nose were missing." Such trophy taking in the 19th and early 20th century is actually much more common than the article indicates. With photo.

He had been killed three days earlier in Smith's apartment in the 2600 block of 13th Avenue S. in Minneapolis."

Three men arrested for stealing a FIRE TRUCK
ABC TV affiliates | Submitted by: Alzoeus
Three of the goofiest looking white guys ever steal a fire truck and take it for a night on the town. It doesn't say in the article, but they also used it to climb on top of buildings and break into them by going through the roof through air condition units. Apparently, they didn't think to just buy a ladder... which explains why they stole the fire truck in the first place.

Perth shagged out by the whore on terror
Tiscali World Online | Submitted by: Lou
The war on terror takes its toll on all sorts. American marines, for example, find months at sea without the company of women stressful and frustrating. But the anti-terror campaign means prostitutes in Perth have a rough time too: they are straining to satisfy the penises of thousands of American marines, who docked in the western Australian town on their way home from Afghanistan.

Here Come the Ratbots
BBC | Submitted by: thebethone
By stimulating a rat's "pleasure center" as a reward for obeying commands, scientists can now use electrodes in a rat's brain to direct his movements from a laptop computer. The applications for search-and-rescue are staggering, as a rat with a little receiver in his backpack can easily scamper through rubble to sniff out bodies, live or not - but even the researcher in charge admits that the moral questions raised have no easy answers: "Our animals were completely happy and treated well and in no sense was there any cruelty involved... Nonetheless, the idea is sort of creepy. I do not know what the answer is to that." With a neat Family Circus style cartoon showing the test rats' path through the obstacle course.

The "I Did Your Mother" show
Hartford Courant | Submitted by: Pete
"During a recent skit, for example, the hosts, sitting behind a table, earnestly tell the audience that they are not demeaning to women and, in fact, love women. Then a female cast member crawls out from under the desk and wipes off her mouth and smiles. One of the hosts slaps her behind."

Til death do us part
This Is London | Submitted by: cornford
"An engaged couple died in each other's arms when a bungee jump went tragically wrong... The owner, Lorenzo Illuminati, said: "I had actually closed when they called. They begged me to stay open so I waited for them. They jumped off together in each other's arms and then this happened. It's terrible."

Independent Online | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"The victim refused to pardon him, an essential requirement under Saudi law to spare the aggressor from physical retribution, and insisted that two of his teeth were pulled out.
