Nineteen year FA cup grudge leads to severed ear
Sun | Submitted by: chompson
"Former soccer star George Reilly told yesterday how his ear was bitten off, by a thug with a 19-year FA Cup grudge... After quitting soccer he became a brickie and was working on a site in Corby, Northants, when a labourer punched him to the ground. The thug chewed off one of his ears — and whispered "Plymouth" into the other." Nice picture.

Cable pirates conned by cable companies
MSNBC | Submitted by: Razor
"Auction sites are flooded with sales of so-called "Universal digital Cable TV descramblers." For a small price, buyers are told, they can see all the pay-per-view sports and movies they want. Free boxing, free Playboy, all for $10. Needless to say, there’s a very big catch... the box also stores all pay-per-view orders that haven’t been transmitted. So some customers end up with very large cable bills."

Indymedia SF | Submitted by: Any Mouse

Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller was also hit by splashes of paint in the incident inside the parliament building. The Danish government is expected to contribute a warship and submarine in a war against Iraq." Spectacular pictures.

Vladimir Pozner predicts great trouble
Pravda | Submitted by: Dmitry
Among other things, this anecdote: "Alpert managed to film the things that happened in Iraqi towns. As it turned out, not all smart bombs were actually smart. Some of them missed their targets. It turned out that there were casualties among women, children and elderly people. Alpert showed those people and their crying relatives to the management. He showed the ruins of apartment buildings to them as well." The network fired him because of his inconvenient findings.

Frenchman's home vandalized
ABC TV affiliates | Submitted by: Any Mouse
France's recent behavior hasn't exactly been exemplary. But this is no reason to stoop down below that level: "When Francoise Thomas took out the garbage Saturday morning, she saw red letters painted on the garage door of her Houston-area townhouse: "SCUM GO BACK TO FRANCE". Neighbors criticized the vandal and said they fear it was someone they know."

A thank you letter to GW from Paulo Coelho
iranian.com | Submitted by: colleen
"Thank you for showing everyone that the Turkish people and their parliament are not for sale, not even for 26 billion dollars. Thank you for revealing to the world the gulf that exists between the decisions made by those in power and the wishes of the people. Thank you for making it clear that neither José María Aznar nor Tony Blair give the slightest weight to or show the slightest respect for the votes they received. Aznar is perfectly capable of ignoring the fact that 90% of Spaniards are against the war, and Blair is unmoved by the largest public demonstration to take place in England in the last thirty years."

Terror alert red = martial law in NJ
South Jersey News | Submitted by: f00f
"If the nation escalates to "red alert," which is the highest in the color-coded readiness against terror, you will be assumed by authorities to be the enemy if you so much as venture outside your home, the state's anti-terror czar says... A red alert would also tear away virtually all personal freedoms to move about and associate." This isn't some pundit speaking. This is the guy in charge of New Jersey's Homeland Security, people. What Constitution?

Dumb business moments: Naked granny boobies
Business 2.0 | Submitted by: Editfish
"Six months after Midas hires marketing firm Cliff Freeman & Partners, lauding its "strategic insight into our business," that insight shows itself in the form of a TV ad featuring an elderly woman in a Midas shop. Told of the company's lifetime guarantee, the woman rips open her blouse and asks, "So what can you do with these?" Strategically and insightfully, the ad is quickly pulled." Umm some of us want that sort of thing.

Justice Scalia a threat to the Average American?
Wire Services | Submitted by: nordridge
Scalia, appointed for life: "Scalia made the same demand on John Carroll University, where he spoke Tuesday night. He talked mostly about the constitutional protection of religions, but also said that government has room to scale back individual rights during wartime without violating the Constitution. "The Constitution just sets minimums," Scalia said. "Most of the rights that you enjoy go way beyond what the Constitution requires." He also demands that media be banned from his Free Speech Award.

Gee, I wonder who could be behind THIS
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Stefan
"Electronic bugging devices have been found in offices used by the French and German delegations in a building where an European Union summit will open on Thursday, EU officials said... EU spokesman Dominique-George Marro said Wednesday the EU had launched an investigation into the bugs, but had no immediate idea who was behind it." No immediate idea? Smart guy!

Robots like boobies too
Nature | Submitted by: BlueRat
Cows can now milk themselves: "Using an infrared camera, the arm will zero in on one of a cow's warm teats and use it to locate the others. It will then place conventional suction-powered milking cups over each of them... Some animals happily visit existing robotic milkers day and night. But in every herd there are a stubborn few that spurn automation, prefering the human touch. "Several cows have to be fetched a couple of times a day," says Meijering, which makes the cost of robotic milking of large herds difficult to justify for the time being."
