Pussycat biker: Police are pussies
Ottawa Citizen | Submitted by: Gorg
"Ontario's most wanted fugitive, a 27 year old outlaw biker, came out of hiding this week, risking capture to defend himself against police claims that he will use shoulder fired missiles to engage them in a "bloody, wild" shootout rather than return to prison. Police say he is violent and has a vast arsenal. But Carl Thomas Bursey, a prominent Bandidos biker, tells a different story. He fears the police campaign against him is intended to taunt him into a "bloody last stand."

Paper cuts all the more deadly
CBS News | Submitted by: Raven Eyed Bacchante
"Two years ago, Bobbie Mackeon got a paper cut. She thought it was no big deal. But it got infected. Bobbie, a nurse practitioner, spoke with the doctors at her hospital, and they all figured an antibiotic would take care of it. It didn’t. Nor did the next two antibiotics she tried. "The bug that was in there was eating these antibiotics for breakfast," she says. With her infection still raging, Bobbie turned to an intravenous antibiotic, which finally did help. But complications then led to potentially fatal blood clots. "The blood clot was about four inches across and it had little bubbles around it, which told us it was infected." All this from modern overuse of antibiotics.

Bum drops headstone onto car
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"A homeless man has been arrested after dropping a headstone over 6 meters onto traffic because he was annoyed at noisy cars that stopped him sleeping in a highway tunnel, police said Sunday. "Noise from the cars traveling along the highway was driving me mad, so I hurled the headstone onto the highway as a type of revenge," he told the police. To steal the headstone, police said, Koyashiki went to a cemetery about 1 kilometer from where he had been staying. He then used a bulldozer in the cemetery to carry it to the bridge from where he hurled it."

B and T Marketing & Media | Submitted by: doggprints
"Reaction has been split over the hit single "Get your juices going" created by D’Arcy Australia (advertising agency) for Mars confectionery division Effem Foods brand...

St. Petersburg Times | Submitted by: The Great American Pickle
A 13 year old student put a sleeping pill in his teacher's Diet Coke to get back for his poor math grade and now faces up to 30 years in prison (well, if he were an adult. So he really only faces 8 years in juvenile.) Much of the rest of the class watched him do it and no one warned the teacher. According to article, teacher poisonings are on the rise.

Keeping abreast of the times
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: Col. Klink
"Japanese teens' busts are booming. But rather than being a transformation to tempt or titillate, the bountiful breasts stem from an alarming booby that apparently allows young girls to absorb potentially deadly substances. Physicians warn girls to juggle their lifestyles to keep abreast of healthy habits to avoid a deadly fate, according to Josei Jishin." Who writes copy like this?

Trading honey buckets for flush toilets, or not
Anchorage Daily News | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
"The flies and mosquitoes were thick and the air was heavy on a sunny summer day, but Moses Anvil III wore knee-high rubber boots, heavy rain gear and a hooded sweat shirt. The reason became clear when he backed his four-wheeler and trailer to the village sewage lagoon, opened the tank, and watched as 100 gallons of human waste spattered and flowed away." Second link is a nice photo of the sewage lagoon.
