Independent Online | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A Tanzanian man cut off his genitals in an attempt to win sympathy from creditors after squandering their money on prostitutes and alcohol, a newspaper reported on Saturday. The 24-year-old reached the decision after realising he could not pay back millions of shillings lent to him by friends and relatives to invest in a business venture... The report said it was the second such incident in the area in two months. Another man slashed off his genitals upon failing to settle a 300 000 shilling debt."

Mom masterminds family bank heist
CNN | Submitted by: jimbo
"A woman who drove the getaway car in a bank robbery pulled off by her twin 14-year-old daughters was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday... Wortman Jones pleaded guilty to armed robbery and using a juvenile to commit an offense... Using masks and a toy pistol painted with nail polish to make it look more realistic, her daughters walked into a bank last October 29, appearing so harmless a teller thought they were in Halloween costumes.

Passenger freaks out, dies aboard flight
CNN | Submitted by: Dave
"Alexander Siess was on a recent flight from Mexico City to Paris when, authorities say, he became so unruly the pilot made an emergency landing at Kennedy International Airport. Minutes after the 767 jet touched down, the 25-year-old Austrian was dead. The circumstances of the little-noticed death last weekend - which may have involved alcohol and a violent struggle - remain murky... Three U.S. law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing, described a more dire situation. They said they were told Siess reportedly 'freaked out' and 'charged the cockpit.' As many as 12 other passengers joined in a struggle to subdue him, then tied him up with belts and stockings."

New textbooks coming for Iraqi schoolchildren
Reuters | Submitted by: lavgnr
"President Bush said on Saturday that his administration was rebuilding the country's schools and providing calculators, pencils and textbooks free of Baathist propaganda to students... 'While Saddam supported a massive war machine, Iraqi schoolchildren went without textbooks, and sometimes teachers went unpaid. Saddam used schools for his own purposes: to indoctrinate the youth of Iraq and to teach hatred,' Bush said. 'We want young Iraqis to learn skills and to grow and hope, instead of being fed a steady diet of propaganda and hatred.'"

But the public, and Communist leaders, were left nonplussed after he told state TV he could not see the Great Wall of China from space... The Chinese have been proud of the fact that legend has it the 2,000-year-old wall is the only man-made object that can be seen from space. Only it can't, according to NASA." [Myth busted.]
