  • February 7, 2006 --The owner of a 22-year- old Dachshund claims the secret of his dog's long life is cigarettes. Wolfgang Treitler, of Austria, says his pooch has munched his way through 10 cigarettes a day for years, eating the tobacco and the paper, and chewing on the filter before spitting it out.

    "He is as fit as a puppy," Treitler said.

    • February 8, 2006 -- Rabid "Star Trek" fan Tony Alleyne has gone broke and declared Chapter 11 after spending more than $20,000 to turn his home into the a replica of the Starship Voyager. His house has molded walls, touch-panel blue lighting, a life-size model of the show's transporter room, a command console and windows reshaped to look like portholes. Alleyne had hoped his pad in Hinckley, England, would tempt other Trekkies to pay him to convert their homes, "but I was wrong and just over-stretched . . . I'm still proud of what I created, but it's been a financial disaster."

        • February 9, 2006 -- A retired Arkansas nurse breathed life back into her brother's chicken Boo-Boo by performing mouth-to-beak resuscitation on the bird after she found it face-down in a pond. "I breathed into its beak, and its dad-gum eyes popped open," said Marian Morris. "I said, 'I think the chicken's alive now. Keep it warm.' "

          Boo-boo is listed in stable condition.

          • February 10, 2006 -- A pod of whales did a better job than the U.S. Coast Guard in aiding a missing diver off the coast of Puerto Rico. Marcos Calzada Colon, 40 was reported missing Tuesday afternoon and the Coast Guard sent out several boats and a helicopter to search for him in heavy rain and rough waters. That search was called off at nightfall, but Colon kept swimming all night. He decided to follow the whales for a while because he figured they'd protect him from sharks. Colon managed to reach his home island of Vieques safe and shark-bite free. "When I got to land, the first thing I said was: Thank you, God," he said.

            • a rabid nationalism that leads people to attack immigrants and anyone else they perceive as being different
              So this is the part of the definition that they get "rabid dog" or other animal from? Because the animal has an intense feeling of nationalism towards imigrants? LOL

              AND how about: madness, to rave, an acute virus .... blaa blaa blaa Funny that in the Websters 9th New Collegiate edition a drawing and definition of a racoon follows.....

              • February 11, 2006 -- There is great embarrassment in your future. A box of X-rated fortune cookies was mistakenly delivered to a fundraiser hosted by a Brooklyn politician. The 350 cookies stuffed with "the most graphically lurid" fortunes got mixed up with a batch of 1,750 cookies ordered for the Chinese New Year event, Borough President Marty Markowitz said Friday. Some guests "were stunned, to say the least." The annual event - to raise money to send poor children to summer camp - was attended by some 700 guests Tuesday evening, but only about 80 were still there when the dirty cookies were opened, Markowitz said. The borough president was on the second floor of the two-level restaurant when a guest "yelled to me from the first floor: `Marty, did you order these cookies? Did you see what's inside them? I think you better get your butt down here!'" Markowitz said.
                Markowitz, who was not wearing his glasses, had the "fortunes" read to him by some of the guests. "I'm sure they were meant for a raunchy bachelor party," he said. "They were not cutesy. Triple X to say the least." He said his office had given the restaurant 10 slogans about Brooklyn to insert into the fortune cookies, and 1,400 were delivered correctly. They contained such G-rated boosterisms as: "Brooklyn - The 10th Planet," "Brooklyn - it's more than a freak'in tree," and "Brooklyn - it's like an everything bagel."

                • February 12, 2006 -- With so many mundane items banned from airplane luggage, this woman might have thought better than to pack a human head in her suitcase. Customs officials in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., seized the cranium from Myrlene Severe, a Haitian-born U.S. resident who obtained the skull in Haiti and planned to use it to ward off evil spirits. She was charged with smuggling a human head without documentation, a rap that could get her up to 15 years in prison.

                    • Grandmother Called To Active Duty With Seabees

                      POSTED: 11:11 am EST February 13, 2006

                      Grandmother Sunny Simpson is off on what calls the biggest adventure of her life. But it's far from a retirement cruise.

                      Simpson is a member of the Naval Reserve and has been called to active duty. She's part of a Seabee unit -- the Navy's builders.

                      Simpson, whose unit is based at Fort McCoy, Wis., doesn't know where she'll be sent. But she said it's likely they will end up in Iraq.

                      The 49-year-old culinary specialist is the grandmother of seven.

                      Simpson said the toughest part of going on active duty is explaining to her grandkids why they won't be having anymore of Grandma's chocolate cookies for a while.

                      • February 16, 2006 -- Cops in Fort Worth, Texas, are looking for a suspect with bad grammar after a burglar broke into Linens 'n Things, stole cash from the safe and left a smarmy, but horribly misspelled, birthday card. The card, next to a partially eaten cake, read, "Happy B-Day, From Ur Friendy Rooftop Boogler, 2-14-06."

                          That's the case in Utah, where Chelsee Bushman, 22, gave birth to a 3-pound baby daughter and, just 90 minutes later, her mom, Sherri Callister, 42, gave birth to a 5-pound, 8-ounce son — assisted by the same nurses in the same room at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.

                          "Just finding out my mom was pregnant was a big surprise," said Bushman, of Springville.

                          • February 18, 2006 -- You may have heard of hall monitors, but now China has deputized a battalion of Wall Monitors. The legendary, 4,000-mile-long Great Wall of China is suffering under the impact of the more than 10 million visitors it gets each year. This has forced Chinese officials to call on local villagers to keep an eye on the structure, and make sure gawkers don't do damage or try to chip pieces off.

Family members said the delivery went smoothly. Janice Wulf and her third husband, Scott, 48, named the red-haired boy Adam Charles Wulf.
