God reincarnated as filthy monkey
Himalaya Times | Submitted by: Strangelove
"A monkey just came inside the Altar or sanctum to the surprise of the priest and other on lookers. They bet the monkey with the stick and many have even threw stones. In the melee the monkey bore all this and came out with a new avatar as monkey God." Further proof that some people just need to evolve.

Airport authority lacks airport
Suburban Chicago News | Submitted by: wingnut
"Taxpayers in the northwest corner of Kane County funded an airport authority for 10 years, even though there has never been a commercial airport in that area. And with a $32,000 budget levied from property tax bills, members of the Northwest Kane County Airport Authority Board admittedly do absolutely nothing. "I don't think we've even met in the last two years."

Scanner leaves no place left to hide
Wired | Submitted by: Any Mouse
A new security scanner is being developed by PNNL which relies on high frequency radio waves. It can see through clothing, raising privacy concerns. "However, engineers understood the concern expressed by some on privacy and have worked to reprogram the system so that the concealed objects could be placed on a genderless wireframe mannequin or a human silhouette, giving the operator a view of only concealed items and not the person's image."

Meteorite hits girl
BBC | Submitted by: Phatlor
"The odds against being hit by a meteorite are billions to one, but a teenager in North Yorkshire may have had one land on her foot. Siobhan Cowton, 14, was getting into the family car outside her Northallerton home at 1030 BST on Thursday when a stone fell on her from the sky." Actually it's unlikely that this was a direct impact from the sky, it more than likely is a secondary impact, as evidenced by the fact that Siobhan still has her foot intact.

Pardon record power grab
Washington Post | Submitted by: Chez Bizzaro
Bush is keeping Clinton's pardon records secret, as well as pardon records of other presidents going way back to 1927, in some kind of nutso power grab. His odd protection of Clinton is reminiscent of Bill Hick's summary of politics in America: You can vote for one of two puppets, but then you notice one guy is holding up both puppets.

Being Meadow Soprano
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: Macki
"Listening to all the things she's done--struggled with an eating disorder, contemplated suicide, gone to college, been paralyzed and learned to walk again, done "the whole single girl in Manhattan thing," and found her soul mate--you might be surprised to learn that Sigler is not a soap opera character but a real person and that she is only 21. It makes more sense when you find out that none of these life events lasted more than a few months."

Massively parallel stalking
Los Angeles Times | Submitted by: Soylent
"Dressed slacker casual in a zip-up sweatshirt, her wind-swept hair pulled back from her face to reveal clear skin, full lips and cocker-spaniel eyes, Feiss would probably have slipped under the radar if she weren't so darned cute. But there's another reason for her popularity: Her slightly slurred speech and reddish eyes have led to much speculation online as to whether or not she is stoned on marijuana--something that has made Feiss even more popular."
