EU considering ban on dog & cat furs
BBC | Submitted by: Lydia
"Tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of cat and dog skins are traded in Europe each year." Apparently, garments composed of these skins are often "sold as the fur of some exotic, even mythical beast." Now think hard. In your closet are there any jackets made of gae-wolf, sobaki, Asian jackal, goupee, loup d'Asie, Corsac fox, or dogues du Chine? Those would be woof-woofs. Or how about goyangi, katzenfelle, or the exotic-sounding "rabbit"? Might be meow-meows.

Man finally gets help with welfare application
Aftenposten | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
What do you do when you can't get any decent customer service? One classic technique has always been strapping explosives to your body and demanding some respect. One Norwegian recently dusted off this old chestnut when he walked into his local welfare office with dynamite shoved down his pants. He just wanted help filling out a form. Guess what? It worked.

WCAU-TV 10 Philadelphia | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy

Rape-for-pay scheme lands perps in study hall
nettavisen.no | Submitted by: olev
Two girls have been convicted of perpetrating a sexual assault on another girl, for which a man paid them money. As a result, the girls were sentenced to 300 hours of community service. According to the lawyer for one of the defendants: "We are content with the sentence. The court also opened up for the possibility of serving the sentence by doing homework." Homework? Why not sentence them to mowing the lawn and doing the dishes while you're at it?

Don King accused of death threats
skagitvalleyherald.com | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
According to a lawsuit filed by heavyweight prizefighter Lennox Lewis, boxing promoter Don King illegally pressured Mike Tyson to back out of a match with Lewis. "The suit alleges that King threatened the life of Tyson's friend and adviser, Los Angeles agent Jeff Wald." According to the suit, boxing has become "a sport populated by athletes who refuse to honor their contractual commitments and corrupt promoters, such as Don King, who will stop at nothing -- including even death threats, tax evasion and bribery -- to advance their own causes."

Microsoft unveils scary new hardware
Wired | Submitted by: Sean Dugan
Microsoft founder Bill Gates recently demoed a computer specially-built for the upcoming successor to Windows XP. Codenamed "Longhorn," the new OS features the so-called "Next Generation Secure Computing Base," designed to prevent you from circumventing copy protection and digital watermark technologies. The new hardware he demoed includes a "Security Support Component chip that encrypts stored data in a supposedly tamper-proof 'vault' on hard drives." That sounds wonderful. According to Gates: "We have a lot of pieces to put together yet, but eventually (NGSCB) will be a standard feature on all PCs." This thing better come with a big jar of lubricant for the user's butthole.

Montanans, their cars, and their booze
Los Angeles Times | Submitted by: Jerry Bourbon
Despite the fact that Montana has the second-worst record of alcohol-related deaths per capita, state lawmakers have yet to pass an open container law. As a result, in Montana "you can open a bottle of any kind of alcohol and drink it while tooling down the highway." And because the legislature meets only every other year, it'll be at least 2005 before any such law could be enacted. Which it won't.

Boy's head stuck in Ronald McDonald's crotch
BayArea.com | Submitted by: ainaray
A rambunctious four-year-old boy at McDonald's "somehow got his head wedged in between the legs of a life-size, grinning fiberglass clown... The mishap triggered an ordeal that ended when employees finally lathered the 40-pound preschooler's head with liquid soap and slipped him out." Insert joke here.

Taliban regrouping as U.S. announces pullout
Time | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
America is about to walk away from Afghanistan again, despite the fact that the Taliban seem to be getting their shit back together. "[The] announcement that the U.S. would like to withdraw its forces by the end of summer next year may have been received with a measure of anxiety by Afghan President Hamid Karzai. That's because the security situation in Afghanistan today may be worse than it was a year ago -- and the Taliban appear to be making something of a comeback." Afghanistan? That was so last year. It's all about Iraq now, baby. And possibly Syria.

Gun smugglers or Village People tribute band?
canada.com | Submitted by: Retrogrouch
An Ottawa police offier, a Mountie, and a city firefighter are among 10 men charged in the sale of restricted weapons and ammunition. The illegal weapons network is apparently linked to the local drug trade. According to the Ottawa Citizen: "Detectives seized 33 firearms, knives, batons, pepper spray, Nunchaku sticks, police duty belts, speed loaders, body armour, gas masks and 10,000 rounds of ammunition, which included a 'substantial' amount of police-issued ammunition."
