Brain tumour caused pedophilia
New Scientist | Submitted by: Tobermory
Not the most pleasant of conditions to have: "The sudden and uncontrollable paedophilia exhibited by a 40 year old man was caused by an egg sized brain tumour, his doctors have told a scientific conference... The judge ruled that he had to pass a 12-step Sexaholics Anonymous rehabilitation program or face jail time. But the man was expelled after he failed to restrain himself from asking women at the program for sex."

Greenpeace ship vs. Russian nuclear submarine
Pravda | Submitted by: anonymous
"The submarine started a torpedo attack maneuver, and the people onboard the Greenpeace ship recognized it. The ship started rushing about. The captainís mate entered the hydroacoustics cabin, holding the razor like a grenade. The Greenpeace sailors 'heard' the noise of a very weird torpedo that was coming from the Soviet submarine... "Our sound technician 'broadcasted' the noise of Boris Durtsevís electric razor. He did really well: the Greenpeace ship turned to the west and set off at full speed. They probably thought that it would not be good to joke with Russians. They got cold feet and escaped to Norway. Greenpeace never showed up again that year."

Forgive me, Father, for I am in Denim
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
Blue jean clergy?! Say it ain't so: "Although traditionalists condemn the idea of dress-down Sundays, a number of senior clerics believe that the move could help to dispel the image of the Church as an outdated club with strange rituals." One should note that it is much easier to wash prepubescent cum stains out of Lee Dungarees than black cloth.

The naked truth in Vermont
New Yorker | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Heterosexual males and females dominated the section nearest the parking lot trailhead, and gay men gravitated farther along the trail to a shoreline area that happened to be within view of the Frost family. Some of the gay men were also retreating into the woods for purposes other than mushroom hunting. Evidently, the presence of naked men so close to her property disturbed Margaret Frost. Or was it the particular fact that these naked men slept with other men?"

Seattle Post-Intelligencer | Submitted by: george_lazenby
"What people thought were gunshots outside Mead High School turned out to be an exploding electrical transformer on a power pole, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office said. A curious squirrel apparently got into the transformer, causing it to short out about 9:30 a.m. Spokane County Deputy Ron Mulvey, one of the first officers on the scene, discovered the deceased rodent still affixed to the transformer. The squirrel was still smoldering." The most exciting thing to happen in Spokane for quite some time.

Jesus brother artifact found
New York Times | Submitted by: Deth Vegetable
"An inscription in stone, found in or near Jerusalem and written in a language and script of 2,000 years ago, bears the words "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus." This could well be the earliest artifact ever found relating to the existence of Jesus, a French scholar has concluded in an analysis of the inscription being published this week in the magazine Biblical Archaeology Review." Of course since the artifact was purchased on the shady antiquities market and away from archaeological context, who knows what the fuck this is.
