  • February 8, 2004 --A Nevada woman got more than testy with her boyfriend — she bit his testicles in a booze-fueled rage, police said. The Reno woman, who started a fight with her beau, has been nabbed on suspicion of domestic battery. The suspect also bit her boyfriend on the shin, inner thigh, ankle and palm.

      • February 10, 2004 -- Toilet paper became a "weapon" at a Nebraska prison - where an inmate escaped by using a wad of it to make a fake gun. Michael McGuire shaped a pistol out of wet toilet paper, used a pen for the barrel and dyed the whole thing black to flee two guards at the lockup in Tecumseh, authorities said. When cops pulled real guns, McGuire couldn't exactly fire his, and he was arrested at a nearby coffee shop.

        • Yellow Snow Leads to Burglary Arrest




          ELKO, Nev. (AP) -- He should have taken care of it before he left home.

          Elko police arrested Roger Gray, 25, on the basis of yellow snow he left after relieving himself on the rooftop of a restaurant that had been burglarized.

          Investigators said the evidence produced enough DNA to link Gray to the scene.

          He subsequently admitted a jewelry store burglary, police said. Investigators were comparing his DNA and other evidence to determine whether he also might be implicated in burglaries at a pizza place and Elko's J.C. Penney store.

          He was booked Friday night for investigation of burglary. Bail was set at $5,000.

            Husband, Wife Both Win After Playing Lottery Separately

            POSTED: 8:04 a.m. EST February 9, 2004

            PARKERSBURG, W.Va. -- After years of marriage -- Richard and Lois Thomas are thinking alike.

            Unbeknownst to each other, the Thomases each both bought lottery tickets at the same Parkersburg convenience store. And they each won $25,000 in the state's Cash 25 drawing last week.

            The husband and wife both played the same set of numbers, based on family birthdays. The couple has three children and four grandchildren.

            And it's not the first time those numbers have been lucky. Richard Thomas won $25,000 on the same numbers 11 years ago.

              • February 11, 2004 -- You're handcuffed and somehow escape from the cops. What do you do? Whatever it is, don't follow the actions of a dopey Texas fugitive who successfully escaped the law and made it to Arkansas - only to be busted when he brazenly tried to buy a pair of bolt cutters. Authorities say that when the fugitive made his purchase at the store in Haynesville, a clerk noticed the handcuffs and quietly called police. They greeted him as he left.

                • February 12, 2004 -- A small shark sank its jaws into a swimmer's leg and refused to let go, so the victim had to limp to his car and drive for help - with the thrashing fish still attached. "A couple of people tried to help me but I couldn't remove it, so I got up into my car and drove to the clubhouse," said Luke Tresoglavic, who had been in the surf north of Sydney, Australia. Lifeguards there were able to get the shark off by hosing it with fresh water. Tresoglavic suffered only minor injuries. ouch

                  • February 13, 2004 -- Cops want to, er, bust an Italian woman who had her breasts enlarged with the biggest silicone implants available and then skipped out on the $9,500 plastic-surgery bill. Detectives in Rome have few leads since the woman used a false name, but they're relying on a photo and her unusually large bra size to track her down. Her surgeon, Dr. Jamal Salhi, lamented: "Unfortunately, this kind of fraud isn't that unusual."

                      Man dies after marrying dog for luck:
                      A Nepalese man has died three days after marrying a dog in the hope it would bring him good luck.
                      Phulram Chaudhary died after he had tied the knot with the dog, reports daily Gorkhapatra.
                      The 75-year-old, from Durgauli in Kailali district, was reportedly followed a practice prevalant in the Tharu community which believes that an old man who regrows teeth must take a dog as a bride
                      The wedding was attended by the man's son and other relatives
                      The paper said: "He thought the marriage would avert a great misfortune at a later stage of life but he died within a few days."

                      • February 14, 2004 -- Animal-rights activists want the central Oklahoma community of Slaughterville to change its name - to Veggieville. Slaughterville "conjures up images of the violent and bloody deaths of terrified chickens, pigs and cows," claim the folks at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). But the citizens of Slaughterville (pop. 3,609) are turning a deaf ear. To them the name - which honors early 20th century storekeeper James Slaughter - is a sacred cow.

                          "Fish extinguishes fire"

                          A Beta (siamese fighting fish) named Dora saved a school from a fire in Elm Brook, Iowa. A unattended candle that was left burning on a teacher's desk caused a small fire which tripped the fire alarm. The heat of the fire cracked the fish's tank, the water leaking from the tank extinguished the fire. Firefighters who answered the alarm found Dora flopping around in the bottom of the tank. Dora was placed in another container, and she is being hailed as a "hero".
                          ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

                          • February 15, 2004 -- Arthur Winston is a piece of work - but in a great way. The 97-year-old California transit worker has missed but one day of work during his 70 years on the job cleaning buses. Winston has also never once been late or left early. His one absence came the day his wife died in 1988.

They braved 28-degree temperatures to perform two jumps for the judges before downing schnapps and finishing the race with a five-point pirouette. Originally, the contest was to be fully nude, but a partial cover-up was ordered to "keep at least some decency," Werner Kostenzer of the local tourism board said.
