Campbell later slipped back into his house."

Wired | Submitted by: Yoshiki
Over eight thousand Gulf War veterans have died in the last ten years, far more than should have, under any circumstances. And large numbers of them suffer odd ailments that are otherwise difficult to explain: An anonymous Air Force Ranger "blamed Army-administered drugs for the tumor. And his girlfriend said there were other "side effects" of his service in the Gulf, including increased agitation and sperm that "burned."

How I became a stripper
Guardian | Submitted by: Any Mouse
A nice girl ventures down the sticky road towards becoming a stripper: "Some of the girls moved sinuously and gracefully, others, clearly bored, kicked their clothes in the air and caught them nonchalantly as they snapped gum, but every single one of them was making money. I had never seen such a distilled representation of capitalism."

That might not be a real proof set
Coin World | Submitted by: HawaiianAtheist
"Most of those contacting Coin World believed the sets to be original Mint products and possibly rare and valuable. One reader, informed by the Coin World staff that his set was not original, refused to accept that explanation. He said his set showed no signs of tampering when he examined it under magnification." Or perhaps he paid too much for his find.

Insane in a terrorists membrane
Tagesschau | Submitted by: anonymous
German News (in german only, though with a expressive picture of the woman) concerning the whereabouts of the brain of a rather famous female terrorist. She hanged herself in her prison cell in 1976. After her death, her brain was removed and kept until 1997 for researchers without informing her relatives. One newspaper claims it has now been moved from Tuebingen to Magdeburg, where it is still kept in conservation, in order to discover some "criminal structures". Very interesting is the fact that she had some tumor-operation in 1962, before becoming a member of the RAF (terrorist group), a fact that was ignored by the court at trial. Now the brain is to be compared with the brain of a serial killer from 1913.

American assassinated by CIA
BBC | Submitted by: usgradea
Truth, Justice, and the New American way. One of those killed in the CIA attack on the truck in Yemen was an American citizen. What does Amnesty International say about this? "If this was the deliberate killing of suspects in lieu of arrest, in circumstances in which they did not pose an immediate threat, the killings would be extra-judicial executions in violation of international human rights law. The United States should issue a clear and unequivocal statement that it will not sanction extra-judicial executions in any circumstances, and that any U.S. officials found to be involved in such actions will be brought to justice."

Judge submits to the will of Bondage Barbie
CBS News | Submitted by: meatload
Mattel is a harsh, bullying corporation that does not deserve your sympathy or that of the courts: "A British dollmaker who turned Barbie into a partly nude Dungeon Doll, complete with rubber bondage dress and helmet, did not appear to violate the copyrights of Mattel Inc., a judge said. The judge, citing an advertisement describing the doll as wearing 'lederhosen-style Bavarian bondage dress and helmet in rubber with PVC-mask,' wrote that the doll is 'quite different from that typically appearing on Mattel's products for children.'"

SF homeless give back to the community
KRON-TV 4 San Francisco | Submitted by: Son of Benway

Last year, we showed how many carts come from homeless encampments or are recovered from the streets filled with trash and human waste... KRON 4 also did lab tests of random carts retrieved by the Department of Public Works. Half of the carts tested positive for fecal coliform, the bacteria derived from human excrement, fecal strep, e-coli and urine."

The RCPF: Safeguarding cow pee for all
Rediff | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"We recommended inclusion of the prohibition of slaughter of cow and its progeny in fundamental rights. We have also argued that a Rapid Cow Protection Force on the lines of other paramilitary forces be instituted... The holy cow is not just of religious value; it also has economic importance in India. It is the backbone of the Indian economy. Apart from milk products, the urine of the cow is of great medicinal importance."

Mormons down with kung fu Jesus
Wireless Flash | Submitted by: Milk Bone
"Lee Gordan Demarbre was shocked when he recently screened his film, a musical which tells the tale of Jesus's second-coming and his subsequent kung fu battle with vampires, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Amazingly, Demarbre received no gripes from the largely Mormon population even though he thought having "ultimate action hero" Jesus and his Mexican wrestler sidekick fight "mythological horrors and science gone mad" would infuriate biblethumpers."

Nasa pulls Moon hoax book
BBC | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
For some, this is the proof they need that we never landed on the Moon: "The US space agency (Nasa) has cancelled the book intended to challenge the conspiracy theorists who claim the Moon landings were a hoax...
