Counterpunch | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"The Advantages and Limitations of Calmatives for Use as a Non-Lethal Technique, a 49 page report obtained last week by the Sunshine Project under US information freedom law, has revealed a shocking Pentagon program that is researching psychopharmacological weapons. Based on "extensive review conducted on the medical literature and new developments in the pharmaceutical industry", the report concludes that "the development and use of [psychopharmacological weapons] is achievable and desirable." These mind-altering weapons violate international agreements on chemical and biological warfare as well as human rights."

Come out with your pants down
All Africa | Submitted by: Paper Bagman
King Mswati III of Swaziland has ordered soldiers to strip down any women who are wearing trousers; granted, this has become a sort of civil rights issue to women in Swaziland. Meanwhile, men in Swaziland are saying "It's a good start..." This is one of many ways Swazi women are second class citizens, where they even lack the right to enter into contracts.

The Few, the Proud, the Tripping Ravers
News and Observer | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"It began with a tip about the nightclubs of downtown Wilmington, where patrons, many of them Marines, were dancing the night away on ecstasy... A surprising number of enlisted personnel from Camp Lejeune were heavily into the local "designer drug" scene, hanging out in clubs, at ecstasy parties called "raves" and in small groups in homes in Wilmington, Jacksonville and Greenville." Ok, well and good, but why do the Marines care about this? The answer appears later in the article: "Clubs like to have them using ecstasy because they tend not to fight."

Chinese Harry Potter ripoff
Times | Submitted by: george_lazenby
Harry Potter and Leopard Walk up to Dragon: "Harry doesnít know how long it will take to wash the sticky cream cake off his face. For a civilised young man it is disgusting to have dirt on any part of his body. He lies in the high-quality china bathtub, keeps wiping his face, and thinks about Daliís face, which is as fat as the bottom of Aunt Penny."
