    - and yet another reason to avoid the stores.

                  • Weird...very sad......and true

                    Foraging pigs spark blaze in Cambodia, killing owner
                    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - Five pigs searching for food ran
                    into their owner's house in Cambodia, knocked over a container of
                    gasoline and started a fire that killed the sleeping owner and
                    seriously injured his wife, a newspaper reported Monday.
                    Phan Sophal, 37, died from burn injuries in hospital after the
                    incident last Thursday in Kampong Speu province, 45 kilometers (30
                    miles) southwest of the capital, Phnom Penh, the Koh Santepheap
                    (Island of Peace) newspaper said.
                    The victim's 32-year-old wife, Ly Rany, was burned and remains
                    hospitalized in critical condition, the report said.
                    The pigs ran into the kitchen to look for food after the couple
                    forgot to lock them in their pen at the end of the day, the report
                    said. They knocked over a container holding about 20 liters (5.3
                    gallons) of gasoline, which splashed onto the stove where Ly Rany
                    was cooking and started "a raging fire," the newspaper said.
                    Phan Sophal ran from his bed after catching fire and plunged
                    into a nearby pond to extinguish the flames, according to the
                    report.
                    The couple have three children who were not home at the time of
                    the fire.

                    • WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - A New Zealand man went bungee
                      jumping Sunday - without the rope, police said.
                      The 30-year-old man, whose name was not released, leapt off a
                      platform into the Waikato River on New Zealand's central North
                      Island after staff at the bungee had refused to let him jump, said
                      Constable Tracey Haggart of Taupo police.
                      He then barged past the staff and dived 47 meters (154 feet)
                      into the river.
                      The impact knocked him unconscious and he was rescued by the
                      bungee jump staff before being flown to nearby Taupo hospital,
                      Haggart said in a statement. His condition was not immediately
                      available.
                      Taupo is a tourist town 375 kilometers (233 miles) north of the
                      capital, Wellington.
                      Haggart said police had no plans to charge the man, who had
                      consumed "a small amount of alcohol."

                      • FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) - Thousands of fans rioted at Sierra
                        Leone's national stadium Saturday when authorities substituted two
                        local dwarf comedians for a widely anticipated out-of-town midget
                        duo. Police arrested 30 people, amid damage and dozens of injuries.
                        Daylong radio ads had whipped up excitement and ticket sales for
                        Friday night's scheduled performance by the two Nigerian
                        entertainers, Aki and Paw Paw.
                        The Nigerian performers failed to show by early morning.
                        Organizers put the two local dwarf comedians on the stage instead.
                        Fans rioted, throwing projectiles and smashing windows, light
                        fixtures and hundreds of chairs.
                        Witnesses said police fired tear gas. Authorities said 30 people
                        were arrested, including eight who allegedly had tried to steal the
                        stadium's seats.
                        Dozens of show-goers were reported injured in the melee.
                        Saturday, blood splattered parts of the stadium.
                        Acting President Solomon Berewa, filling in while President
                        Ahmed Tejan Kabbah is at a Commonwealth summit in Nigeria, toured
                        the riot site Saturday and condemned the violence.
                        Sierra Leone's National Stadium was built as a gift from China.
                        The stadium was under repairs for damage from the West African
                        nation's devastating 10-year rebellion, ended in January 2002.

                        • DECEMBER 8, 2003 --- Some firefighters got caught in a bit of trouble when they responded to a water main break in the Bronx Sunday night. A fire truck got stuck in a sinkhole on Tiffany Street. The hole was the result of a 12-inch water main break. A crane and tow truck were used to finally get the truck out late Monday morning. The truck was slightly damaged, but none of the firefighters on board were hurt.

                          • December 9, 2003 -- Back in September, when California held a beach-cleanup campaign, 40,000 volunteers were issued special trash bags touted as environmentally friendly because they were made of biodegradable cornstarch. Officials believed the added expense - 10 times the cost of normal plastic trash bags - was justified. But this week, they learned they had been scammed - the bags were plain old environmentally unfriendly plastic.

                            They want a refund.
