Floridian discovers secret oil pipeline to Kuwait
Florida Today | Submitted by: rat
"'It's going right up to Iraq's oil fields,' says the retired Air Force colonel from his home in Palm Bay. 'Maybe I'm full of shit. Maybe all they're doing is building a highway to put in McDonald's and sell hamburgers. But why go that way? I think we're in bed with Kuwait. I think we're pumping oil out of Iraq to pay for this war.'"

Indian man eats only sunlight
Hindustan Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Hira Ratan Manek, aka Hirachand, has not eaten in eight years. He lives on sunlight. ... This 64-year-old mechanical engineer has been tried and tested by US space agency NASA. In June 2002, NASA verified his claims when he spent 130 days with its scientists drinking only water. They have even named such subsistence -- water and solar energy -- the 'HRM (Hira Rattan Manek) phenomenon'. ... His wife Vimla Hirachand describes the HRM phenomenon: 'Every evening he looks at the sun for one-hour without batting an eyelid. It is his main food. Occasionally, he takes coffee, tea, buttermilk or some other liquid.' Hirachand himself says that this eating through the eyes is best done in the evening when the sun's ultra-violet rays are least harmful."

NASCAR fans unhappy about donation to Jesse Jackson
Orlando Sentinel | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy
"Both black and white conservatives are calling for NASCAR to end its relationship with its most unlikely of partners: the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition. ... Headed by the staunchly Republican France family, NASCAR has also given $250,000 to the Citizenship Education Fund, an arm of Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH Coalition. ... 'Good grief, just think, a portion of the $95 ticket price is landing in ole Jesse's hand,' one fan wrote on an Internet message board. 'Un-freakin-believable! this is a new found low for Nascar. no more going to the races for me while this extortion and or sloppy kisses between the 2 go on.'"

Andrew W.K., transcendentialist
Orange County Weekly | Submitted by: juanholmes
"Andrew -- a man by every published account so dionysiacally upbeat and friendly that he makes the clowns who visit children’s cancer wards look as dour as British morticians, so unfailingly personable that to refer to him as 'W.K.' should be reserved strictly for law enforcement officials -- speaks a lot about truth. Certainly, his published lyrics may be disyllabic riffs on the word party -- 'It's Time to Party,' 'Party 'Til You Puke,' raised-pick-up-truck jam 'Party Hard' -- and he may yet high-kick his way into history with only some well-stocked used CD bins and the back covers of a million closet-bottomed old magazines to mark his fiery passing. But history is always unfairest to truth, and Andrew, more so than all but a few artists in the 20th century and any at all in the 21st, cares deeply about creating something true. Behind that mask of blood (for which he smashed his own nose) and those panting martial dance routines pulses the fevered mind of a Hegel, a Dostoevsky, a John Keely -- a seeker."
