  • October 28, 2004 -- A study aimed at finding the perfect way for women to urinate has been flushed after it was discovered that women from Western countries can't squat properly. The Australian study was comparing Western toilets with Third World squatting, but researchers found women in more advanced countries could not hold the squat position for more than 30 seconds without falling over. "We were quite sure squatting would be far superior to the Western toilet position, however we have a problem now — one-third of the population is unable to squat," said Professor Ajay Rane, of James Cook University.

    • October 29, 2004 -- A man who said he threw a live electrical wire into his wife's bath hoping a near-death experience would save their marriage has been convicted of attempted murder. William Dahlby of La Crosse, Wis., insisted he was only trying to scare his wife and that the wire was hooked to a "ground fault interrupter" designed to cut the electricity when the cord hit water. His wife was not hurt — but the jury thought Dahlby's defense was all wet.

      • October 30, 2004 -- Matthew McConaughey claims his new Hollywood Hills home is haunted by a nude female ghost.
        The actor said he freaked out when first saw the streaking spirit — and began chasing after it with a baseball bat. But he's now befriended her and named her Madame Blue.

        "Maybe being nude all the time is why we get along," he told the British magazine Femalefirst.

        • November 1, 2004 -- The spirit of Lady Godiva is alive and well in Montana, where a 34-year-old woman got on a horse, rode down the street and began flashing passers-by. Dawnalee Ellis was wearing a tight-fitting, one-piece skirt that had hiked up to her waist, "so she was exposing herself to anyone who wanted to look," Billings Police Officer DeWayne Ness said. "It appears she was intoxicated."
          Definitely a case of privates on parade.

          • November 2, 2004 -- Troy Garrett wrote a check for $91,595.25 to buy a Porsche 911 so he could drive to Florida in style. Problem was, the Fort Thomas, Ohio, man had only $900 in his account and no driver's license, prosecutors say. Garrett's lawyer, Scott Greiner, said the dealership got the car back without a scratch, adding, "I am surprised they pressed charges, taking into account the embarrassment factor . . . that they took a check without first checking if it was good."

            • November 3, 2004 -- There's something missing in Houston — a severed human penis.

              Cops say a 45-year-old woman cut off her 33-year-old boyfriend's penis with a kitchen knife as he slept, discarded the organ, and won't say where it is. So far, a massive search by cops has failed to find it.

              • November 4, 2004 -- Chefs from around the world have gathered in Serbia for the World Testicle Cooking Championship. Ljubomir Erovic, of the Serbian Tourism Board, said, "We want to show the world what great dishes can be cooked using testicles, which are known locally here as white kidneys. "All testicles can be eaten, except human, of course — we don't want any cannibals here."

                • November 5, 2004 -- A fighter pilot strafed a New Jersey school, firing 25 rounds from his wing-mounted cannon in what the military is calling an accident during a nighttime exercise. The incident over the Little Egg Harbor Township Intermediate School in southern New Jersey — which was not occupied at the time — is still under investigation, officials said yesterday. It is not clear why the unidentified pilot of the F-16 fired at the school shortly after 10 p.m.

                    The reason for the missing penis? There are several dogs in the neighborhood that quite possibly ate it. Brings a whole new meaning to "doggie treat"

Inside, they discovered 250 cats living on mountains of their own feces.

                      • November 10, 2004 -- A drunken California man stole a fire engine — then called for help when it got stuck in mud. Claud Gipson-Reynolds, 36, of Santa Rosa, asked for a tow truck on the vehicle's radio — but the cops arrived instead. "I could probably get on that show 'World's Dumbest Criminals,' " said Gipson-Reynolds. It's unlikely he'll have much serious competition.

                        • November 11, 2004 -- The Beatles have won the dubious honor of recording the worst song ever. The Fab Four's 1968 song "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" took top (or bottom) honors in a BBC music poll, despite the fact that it's from their acclaimed "White Album." Music professor Ian Edwards said not to worry because, "Admit it or not, most of these are songs that we liked when they first came out."

                          • Such a naughty girl...

                            LOS ANGELES, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Cartwheels and handstands
                            have gotten an 11-year-old girl temporarily bounced out of her
                            Los Angeles-area school.
                            Deirdre Faegre was suspended for a week after repeatedly
                            disobeying school officials who told her not to perform
                            gymnastic stunts during lunchtime.
                            "Our first concern is the safety of all children," San
                            Jose-Edison Academy Principal Denise Patton told the San
                            Gabriel Valley Tribune. Patton said Deirdre could accidentally
                            strike another student, or injure herself, and other children
                            could get hurt trying to imitate Deirdre, who has been doing
                            gymnastics for five years.
                            Deirdre's father, Leland Faegre, said it was absurd to
                            suspend his daughter for doing gymnastics when students were
                            allowed to play basketball and other sports.
                            "Contact sports, apparently, are fine. But this one is so
                            dangerous it requires the cartwheel cops," Faegre said.

                            • Come Back Tomorrow, Cops Tell Bank Robber
                              ALBANY (Reuters) - An Albany man turned himself into police
                              after seeing himself on TV news robbing a bank but was turned
                              away by officers who told him to come back the next day, police
                              said on Tuesday.
                              Albany resident Darrell Lewis, 40, surrendered to police
                              hours after his Nov. 1 holdup of a downtown bank but was told
                              to come back the next day to be arrested.
                              Lewis went to a different station the following day and was
                              charged with robbery, Albany police spokesman Jimmy Miller
                              said.
                              The incident has prompted an internal investigation.

                              • Stage Sex Man Shocks Again in Court
                                OSLO (Reuters) - A couple who sparked outrage by having sex
                                on stage in front of thousands of stunned rock concert goers in
                                Norway shocked again on Tuesday when the man pulled down his
                                trousers in court.
                                "Oops, I must have dropped my pants," Tommy Hol Ellingsen,
                                28, said as he stripped in front of reporters during a break at
                                a local court in Kristiansand, southern Norway.
                                Hol Ellingsen and Petra Leona Johansson, 22, were in court
                                after refusing to pay a fine of 10,000 crowns ($1,574) each for
                                copulating on stage during a concert in July.
                                The two, who are members of an environmental group, said
                                their sex stunt was meant to draw attention to a campaign to
                                save the rain forest. Their attorney argued that they were
                                protected under freedom of expression law.
