  • August 5, 2004 -- Michael Hanczyk appeared in a Pennsylvania court to fight a drunken driving charge — boozed out of his mind. A judge stopped the hearing and ordered Hanczyk, who reeked of alcohol to take a Breathalyzer. The test revealed that he had a blood-alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit.

    • August 7, 2004 --This is shocking. An Iowa teen was struck by lightning while working on his computer at home. Mike Bergeron, 15, of Council Bluffs was shocked after a bolt of lightning struck the roof of the house and traveled through the electrical lines to the computer. "I never would have expected something like this to happen," said his mom, Linda. "It's a very weird thing."

      • August 8, 2004 -- Talk about your pork-belly flops. Swine dives are making a big splash at the Labadie Pig Gig in Bay City, Mich. The pigs think it's a cool way to beat the summer heat, said Virgil Randall, who displays diving and racing pigs at county fairs and festivals. "Pigs are water animals," he said. "They're from the same family as elephants and hippopotamus." Woe to the nonperforming porkers — they might end up on Pig Gig barbecue grills.

        • No Toe Licking

          AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch Labour party wants to pass
          a law making unsolicited toe-licking an offence after police
          were unable to prosecute a would-be Casanova with a taste for
          female toes because he had committed no crime.
          A police spokesman said on Friday a man had been detained
          after women sunning themselves in Rotterdam's parks and beaches
          claimed he would sneak up on them and begin to lick their toes.
          "The officers had to let him go. Licking a stranger's toes
          is rather unusual but there is really nothing criminal about
          it," the spokesman said.
          Dutch press reports said the man, who is about 35, had been
          licking the toes of strangers for about three years but was
          only recently caught by police.
          Peter van Heemst, a Labour member of parliament, asked
          Christian Democrat Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner on Friday
          to explain why Dutch laws forbid littering but not uninvited
          toe-licking. van Heemst demanded an amendment prohibiting it.

            Finn and Belarussian win sauna endurance contest
            HEINOLA, Finland, Aug 8 (Reuters) - A Finnish man and a
            Belarussian woman won a competition for sitting in a
            blisteringly hot sauna on Sunday, with both nations keeping the
            world titles in the bizarre endurance test.
            Leo Pusa, 56, a three times former champion took back the
            title won by a fellow Finn last year, spending almost 12 minutes
            in the 110 degrees Celsius (230 degrees Fahrenheit) heat.
            Natalya Tryfanava from Belarus held onto the title she won
            last year in the women's contest, managing to stick it out for
            just over eight minutes.
            Ninety competitors from 12 countries took part in the
            contest, held for the sixth time in the small Finnish town
            Heinola, some 130 kilometres (80 miles) north of the capital
            Helsinki.
            Competitors sat in sauna cabins set up on a stage for as
            long as they could take the heat before running out to cool
            down.
            Water was poured onto the sauna stove every 30 seconds to
            keep the temperature up.
            A crowd of several thousand followed their favourites on a
            big video screen, cheering on every competitor as they rushed
            out.
            "In the sauna, my head was almost empty, no thoughts about
            victory or anything," said 36-year-old Tryfanava, her face and
            limbs red from the heat.
            "I was just trying to relax as much as possible, keep my
            breathing in check and not get burned, and still enjoy it."
            Tryfanava said she and her team mates, who came third and
            fourth, underwent a special training programme, but declined to
            reveal details.
            The men's contest has always been won by a Finn.
            Pusa said it would be hard for foreigners to beat Finns as
            saunas are the country's favourite pastime.
            Finland has more than 2 million saunas for a population of 5
            million.

            • No Bologna

              Will giant Italian sandwich capture world record?
              BARI, Italy, Aug 8 (Reuters) - A southern Italian town is
              hoping to set a world record with the creation of a 700
              metre-long meat and salami sandwich.
              Bakers and construction workers in the southern Puglia
              hilltop town of Mottola baked, stuffed and then cut a 1,500
              kilogram (3,307 lb) submarine sandwich into 19,000 pieces.
              Some 50 construction workers with cranes were needed to pass
              the lengthy loaf of bread on a conveyor through a massive oven,
              which cooked it in sections, before it was stuffed with 300
              kilograms of mortadella and 200 kilograms of salami and laid out
              in the streets.
              Seven workers from the local "Catucci" bakery worked
              together for almost 24 hours to beat the previous Italian record
              set in the northern city of Milan with a 347-metre sandwich that
              was filled with Nutella chocolate spread.
              "The mega-sandwich required up to 800 kilograms of flour,
              400 litres of water and 200 kilograms of salt," said Pietro
              Catucci, 40, the creator of the competition.
              "It expanded thanks to our work and to natural warmth from
              the summer sun. That was the additional challenge," he told
              Reuters.
              A notary documented the making of the sandwich in hopes the
              effort will be recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.
              After the required measurements, portions of the giant sub
              were sold and the proceeds given to charity.

              • Oh...that's just bull

                Bull takes refuge in Bangladesh hospital
                DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - A bull escaped from a butcher's knife
                and took refuge in a hospital emergency ward, interrupting medical
                procedures for nearly 45 minutes, a news report said Sunday.
                The big white bull tore away from a butcher as it was about to
                be slaughtered on a busy city street, and charged up a ramp into
                the emergency ward of nearby Dhaka Medical College Hospital, the
                daily Ittefaq newspaper reported.
                "The bull was running around like crazy, and we were all
                scared," Shahin Mollah, a witness, was quoted as saying.
                As patients, doctors and nurses screamed and ran in panic,
                guards chased the animal out of the building and into the
                hospital's morgue.
                The frightened animal was then caught and returned to the
                butcher.

                • Ain't gonna help his sex life.........

                  Rejected by his wife, Moroccan cuts off his penis
                  RABAT, Aug 7 (Reuters) - A 70-year-old Moroccan cut off his
                  penis in protest at his wife's long refusal to have sex with
                  him, hospital sources said on Saturday.
                  The unidentified man severed his organ on Monday in the
                  southern town of Ait Ourir and was taken to a hospital in the
                  nearby city of Marrakesh for treatment.
                  "He didn't bring his penis with him. He has left the
                  hospital well, but without his penis," a doctor from the Ibn
                  Toufail hospital told Reuters.

                  • Stick with me....

                    Man Glues Hand to Girlfriend in Prison
                    MADRID (Reuters) - A German prisoner in Madrid and his
                    girlfriend glued their hands together during a jail visit in an
                    attempt to fight the man's possible extradition to Germany,
                    judicial sources said on Thursday.
                    The pair were taken to hospital, where doctors were
                    considering whether to operate or use a powerful solvent to
                    separate the man's left hand from the woman's right.
                    The glue is a type normally used in car repairs.
                    Spanish police arrested the 39-year-old man in the southern
                    city of Cadiz in April on request from Germany, where he faces
                    accusations of smuggling women from Eastern Europe to force
                    them into prostitution, the judicial sources said.
                    The Madrid court studying the extradition request will not
                    make a decision for several months, they added. The man has a
                    separate judicial case pending in Spain and authorities want it
                    resolved before any handover to Germany.

                      Noisy Sex Session Awakens Entire Street
                      BERLIN (Reuters) - A pair of young lovers so annoyed their
                      neighbors with a noisy sex session that police had to go and
                      ask them to lower the volume, police said on Tuesday.
                      Officers in the western city of Essen interrupted the
                      couple shortly after midnight after neighbors, listening to the
                      sounds through an open window, called to complain.
                      "Gradually more and more neighbors gathered in front of the
                      house to investigate the noise," said a police spokesman.
                      The embarrassed couple were asked to close the window and
                      continue at a lower volume, he said.

                        Curvy Shop Mannequins Must Cover Up
                        TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's moral crackdown has widened its
                        focus from stylishly dressed women to curvaceous shop-window
                        mannequins, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.
                        Morals police have banned shopkeepers from showing unveiled
                        dummies and lingerie in their windows.
                        And men were now forbidden to sell women's underwear, Sharq
                        newspaper said.
                        "Using unveiled mannequins that reveal their bodies' curves
                        is banned," it quoted part of a new police manual as saying.
                        Shops breaking the rules risk closure and losing their
                        trading licenses.

                          JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Around 80 men were caught with
                          their pants down at a men-only nightclub when detectives burst
                          in on a late-night drug raid.
                          Inspector Dennis Adriao told Reuters Monday four men at
                          "The Factory" nightclub in New Doornfontein were arrested in
                          the early hours of Sunday after drugs were discovered stashed
                          in their socks and shoes, which most patrons were still
                          wearing.
                          "Men had to pay at the entrance and leave their clothes at
                          the door. Police were tipped off there would be drugs but they
                          got a bit of a shock because they didn't know it was a nudist
                          night," he said.
                          The owner of the nightclub was also arrested for serving
                          alcohol without a license, and around $4,500 worth of liquor
                          was seized, Adriao said. Drugs were also found dumped on the
                          floor by people who managed to avoid arrest, he added.

                            BUDAPEST, Aug 31 (Reuters) - David Merlini, the man dubbed
                            Hungary's Houdini, was encased in a four tonne concrete block
                            and lowered by crane into the Danube river from Budapest's chain
                            bridge on Tuesday. He promptly escaped.
                            "In less than 15 minutes he was out of the block," said one
                            eyewitness, reporting Merlini was last seen suspended from a
                            helicopter.
                            Earlier in the day Merlini was placed in a glass container
                            into which concrete was poured and allowed to set.
                            Hundreds of people watched images from underwater cameras
                            showing his escape but the murky pictures gave little away about
                            how he did it.
                            Merlini has sought to emulate the American stuntman Harry
                            Houdini, spending 33 hours frozen in a straight jacket on one
                            occasion and welded in a steel coffin at the bottom of the

                              Sexually Frustrated Chimp Takes Up Smoking
                              BEIJING (Reuters) - Sexual frustration has turned a Chinese
                              chimpanzee from a mild-mannered simian into a problem primate
                              who smokes cigarettes and spits at visitors, the Xinhua news
                              agency says.
                              Feili, a female chimp in the city of Zhengzhou in the
                              central province of Henan, picked up her nasty habits by
                              imitating visitors who behaved "improperly" around her, Xinhua
                              quoted zoo director Liu Bing as saying on Sunday.
                              But, Liu said, the root cause of Feili's transformation
                              from a "gentle girl" into a "shrew" lay with the inability to
                              find her a satisfactory mate.
                              A male chimpanzee at the zoo has failed to live up to
                              Feili's sexual demands, and she has snubbed other potential
                              suitors.
                              Zoo officials said Feili was not addicted to nicotine, but
                              the chimp has also demonstrated clever -- if not desperate --
                              behavior to score a smoke.

                              • Scorpion Queen Stung But Eyes Record
                                KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian woman holed up in a
                                glass container with 6,000 scorpions has been stung twice, but
                                is still determined to reclaim a world record for living with
                                creatures, an aide said.
                                Nur Malena Hassan, who is attempting to set a new record by
                                spending 36 days with the scorpions, suffered a mild fever
                                after being stung on her face, Ali Khan Shamsuddin said Sunday.
                                "She's okay now and she's very determined to do it. God
                                willing, she will leave the cage on September 25," Ali Khan
                                told Reuters.
                                Nur Malena, nicknamed "Scorpion Queen," moved into the
                                glass room measuring 12 feet by 10 feet at a shopping mall in
                                Kuantan, about 160 miles east of Kuala Lumpur, on August 21.
                                She leaves the cage just once a day for a 15-minute bathroom
                                break.
                                The 27-year-old Malaysian woman, who set a world record by
                                spending 30 days with 2,700 scorpions in 2001, is trying to win
                                back the title from Thailand's Kanchana Ketkaew, who lived in a
                                glass room with more than 3,000 scorpions for 32 days in 2002.
                                Ali Khan said Nur Malena, who watches DVDs to pass the time,
                                lacks sleep because of the scorpions crawling over her body,
                                and that she is aware that she will pass out if stung three
                                times within a short span.
