    Ah, the start of my new life! But first...
    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A man freed from jail in Belgium last
    Friday allegedly committed eight robberies before being
    arrested the next day, the national Belga news agency reported.
    The unidentified man was carrying stolen jewels when he was
    arrested in Jambes, on the outskirts of the southeastern city
    of Namur, the agency reported Sunday. The agency gave no other
    details on the arrest or what he was imprisoned for earlier.
    Police confirmed an arrest.

    Obedient driver follows orders, crashes car
    BERLIN (Reuters) - A German motorist followed the command
    "Turn right now!" from his navigation system and crashed into a
    small toilet hut by the side of the road -- about 30 yards
    before the crossing he was meant to take.
    The overly obedient 53-year-old from Freiburg drove his
    sport utility vehicle off the road onto into a building site,
    up a stairway and into the small toilet shack, police in the
    eastern town of Rudolstadt said Sunday.
    It caused 2,000 euros ($2,500) worth of damage to the
    stairway, 100 euros damage to his car, and he was also fined 35
    euros.
    Earlier this month an 80-year-old motorist also chose to
    follow his navigation system and ignored a "closed for
    construction" sign on a Hamburg motorway. He then crashed into
    a pile of sand but neither he nor his passenger were injured.

    Inmate won't use "get out of jail free" card
    BERLIN (Reuters) - A 59-year-old German man who has spent
    the last 34 years in jail has turned down offers to be let out,
    an official said Saturday.
    "He rejected an offer to leave in 1992," Thomas Melzer, a
    spokesman for the Brandenburg state justice ministry, told Bild
    newspaper. "We can't do anything if someone sentenced to life
    in prison doesn't want to leave."
    The man, identified only as Gerold H, was convicted of
    murder and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1972 when the area
    was part of communist East Germany.
    German prisoners have no obligation to agree to leave jail
    before their sentences have been completed.

    A cow you can steer
    SANTIAGO, Chile (Reuters) - A Chilean taxi driver has come
    up with a new way to fight assaults: make your vehicle so
    conspicuous that nobody would dare try to rob you.
    After being robbed several times, Juan Geraldo upholstered
    and covered every square inch of his car's interior with black
    and white spotted cowhides, including the steering wheel and
    ceiling. He then decorated the interior with stuffed toy cows,
    and added a horn that moos.
    The visual effect is even more impressive at night, when
    the black and white taxi interior is set off from floor to
    ceiling by a flood of neon light.
    "The effect was immediate. They haven't robbed me since,"
    said Geraldo, who said the special effects also brought in more
    clientele and allowed him to expand his cab fleet from one car
    to nine.
    The 46-year-old taxi driver with 27 years of experience
    completes the cow theme by dressing in a cowhide jacket and
    hat.

    Post Peep, peep, peep

    Prisoners wed after peephole courtship
    ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Two prisoners in an Ivory Coast jail
    who courted and fell in love through a peephole in an iron door
    have been released for a few hours to get married, one of their
    jailers said Friday.
    Roland Guy Bouabre, serving a 3-year sentence for stealing
    a bicycle, courted Emilie Yobouet, who was given a one-year
    sentence for kidnapping a child, while he was delivering
    groceries for her to cook.
    He would take the groceries to the iron door and then a
    guard would deliver them.
    "You can find love in all kinds of places -- even prison,"
    Daloa prison guard Norbert Bah told Reuters by telephone.
    Yobouet completed her sentence two days after the wedding
    but brings food to the jail each day to supplement her
    husband's meager prison diet.

    Fighting spirit saves British pensioner from attack
    BERLIN, Oct 23 (Reuters) - A 70-year-old British pensioner,
    trained in martial arts during his military service, dispatched
    a gang of four would-be muggers in a late-night attack in
    Germany.
    "Looks like he had everything under control," a police
    spokesman from the German town of Bielefeld said of the incident
    last Friday.
    The man, a native of Birmingham who now lives in Germany,
    was challenged by three men, demanding money, while a fourth
    crept up behind him. Recalling his training, the Briton grabbed
    the first assailant and threw him over his shoulder.
    When a second man tried to kick him, the pensioner grabbed
    his foot and tipped him to the ground. At this point, the three
    men, thought to be aged between 18 and 25, fled, carrying their
    injured accomplice with them.
    The pensioner, whose name was not immediately available,
    suffered light abrasions.

    Dutch army should take prostitutes abroad -mayor
    AMSTERDAM, Oct 23 (Reuters) - A Dutch mayoress has raised
    eyebrows by backing the idea of sending prostitutes to accompany
    Dutch troops on foreign missions.
    "The army must consider ways its soldiers can let off
    steam," Annemarie Jorritsma, mayor of the town of Almere in
    central Netherlands and a member of the ruling VVD liberals,
    told Dutch television.
    "There was once the suggestion that a few prostitutes should
    accompany troops on missions. I think that is something we
    should talk about," she said, adding that the prostitutes would
    keep soldiers from turning to local women.
    Her comments have drawn a mixed response in the Netherlands,
    renowned for its liberal prostitution laws.
    "I don't think my wife would find it a good idea," Wim van
    den Burg, a spokesman for the military service trade union told
    Dutch newspaper Volkskrant on Monday.
    Andre van Dorst of sex industry organisation VER told the
    same paper: "I can see somthing in this, though it's a very
    strange idea."
    The Netherlands has more than 2,000 soldiers serving abroad,
    most of them in Afghanistan as part of a NATO peacekeeping
    force, and in Bosnia.

    "Paris Syndrome" leaves Japanese tourists in shock
    PARIS, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Around a dozen Japanese tourists a
    year need psychological treatment after visiting Paris as the
    reality of unfriendly locals and scruffy streets clashes with
    their expectations, a newspaper reported on Sunday.
    "A third of patients get better immediately, a third suffer
    relapses and the rest have psychoses," Yousef Mahmoudia, a
    psychologist at the Hotel-Dieu hospital, next to Notre Dame
    cathedral, told the newspaper Journal du Dimanche.
    Already this year, Japan's embassy in Paris has had to
    repatriate at least four visitors -- including two women who
    believed their hotel room was being bugged and there was a plot
    against them.
    Previous cases include a man convinced he was the French
    "Sun King", Louis XIV, and a woman who believed she was being
    attacked with microwaves, the paper cited Japanese embassy
    official Yoshikatsu Aoyagi as saying.
    "Fragile travellers can lose their bearings. When the idea
    they have of the country meets the reality of what they discover
    it can provoke a crisis," psychologist Herve Benhamou told the
    paper.
    The phenomenon, which the newspaper dubbed "Paris Syndrome",
    was first detailed in the psychiatric journal Nervure in 2004.
    Bernard Delage of Jeunes Japon, an association that helps
    Japanese families settle in France, said:
    "In Japanese shops, the customer is king, whereas here
    assistants hardly look at them ... People using public transport
    all look stern, and handbag snatchers increase the ill feeling."
    A Japanese woman, Aimi, told the paper:
    "For us, Paris is a dream city. All the French are beautiful
    and elegant ... And then, when they arrive, the Japanese find
    the French character is the complete opposite of their own."

    Scales of justice weigh heavy for dieting escapee
    SYDNEY, Oct 20 (Reuters) - An Australian prisoner who went
    on a crash diet so he could squeeze his way out of jail escaped
    to show authorities that he could go straight on the outside, a
    court heard on Friday.
    Robert Cole, 37, fasted and used laxatives to lose some 14
    kg (30 lbs) before he squeezed through a hole he had chiselled
    with a butter knife to escape from a hospital in a Sydney
    maximum security prison in January.
    Weighing just 56 kg (123 lbs), Cole squeezed through the
    hole he had made between brickwork and a windowframe, scaled a
    razor-wire fence, walked along a prison wall and then jumped to
    freedom. He was recaptured three days later.
    Cole's lawyer Richard Leary told the New South Wales
    District Court that his mentally ill client -- jailed on theft
    and assault charges -- had acted naively after failing to
    convince authorities he was fit for release, Australian
    Associated Press reported.
    "He committed this offence in a vain hope to show
    authorities that he can survive outside," Leary said.
    Judge Roger Dive described Cole's offence as serious and
    jailed him for 21 months.
    "It has involved some time-consuming efforts and planning
    and preparation," Dive said.
    Cole's sister Denise Roberts, an Australian actress, said
    he had long suffered from drug-induced psychosis. She said her
    brother had put on a lot of weight since his recapture.

    N.Y. funeral homes plead guilty to body part theft
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - At least four funeral homes stole
    human body parts from thousands of corpses to sell for use in
    transplants in a scheme in which seven funeral directors have
    pleaded guilty, New York prosecutors said on Wednesday.
    The plot's suspected ringleader, Michael Mastromarino, a
    former New Jersey oral surgeon who ran a Fort Lee, New Jersey,
    company that sold human tissue for medical implants, pleaded
    not guilty on Wednesday along with three others to new charges
    in the case, including body stealing and opening graves.
    The prosecutor said the case raised concerns that some
    tissue provided for possible use in transplants could have been
    tainted.
    "These ghoulish thieves thought they could pull off the
    crime of the century, stealing bones from the dead, without any
    thoughts of their victims' families or the transplant
    recipients who would receive possibly tainted bone and tissue
    grafts," Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said in a
    statement.
    One of the bodies possibly harvested was that of famed
    British broadcaster Alistair Cooke, longtime host of the U.S.
    TV program "Masterpiece Theater," who died in 2004. Prosecutors
    said the suspects changed documents to show Cooke died at age
    85 of a heart attack, not at age 95 from cancer.

    Waiter, there's a fly on the wall
    LONDON (Reuters) - Many of life's personal dramas are in
    restaurants. From flirtations, proposals to divorce, people lay
    them out over food and wine -- assuming there is no audience.
    But there is -- and thanks to the Internet, it might be a
    global one.
    "My new customers are too busy French kissing to notice me.
    I skid to a halt, turn around, and walk away ... I don't have
    anything against public displays of affection, but there is
    something called room service."
    Waiter, as the anonymous narrator of this extract from
    http://waiterrant.net calls himself, has changed details to
    protect the privacy of his customers, and keep them coming to
    his upmarket New York Italian restaurant, alias The Bistro.
    Since April 2004, his weblog has been building into a
    situation comedy of life in and around a restaurant - its owner
    and staff, motley customers, the local homeless guy who shows
    up at the window, or the woman neighbor who stepped out naked
    on the street -- but for a towel -- on a dare.

    Ape Monkeying Around Pulls Fire Alarm. Firefighters Rush To Scene

    POSTED: 8:11 am EDT October 24, 2006

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- One of the great apes at a research center in Des Moines was doing more than monkeying around -- she ended up with the Fire Department on the way.

    Web Site: See Photos Of Panbanisha

    Firefighters said a bonobo ape pulled the fire alarm mounted on the wall at the Great Ape Trust of Iowa and sent a signal to the 911 dispatcher.

    The alarm sent fire trucks racing to the scene.

    Fire Department spokesman Brian O'Keefe said a false alarm by an animal is a first for his department. Officials at the center said the offending female ape, an adult named Panbanisha, has been given a scolding and told not to do it again.

    The alarm is mounted on a wall in the bonobo home in an area used by the apes and scientists.

    Alarms at the center are also being covered to make monkeying around with them a little more difficult.

    October 25, 2006 -- This Chicago-area 14- year-old was just plane stupid - and thank goodness for that, anguished family members said. When a 46-year-old man she met on the Internet convinced her to visit him for a sexual encounter, she bought an airplane ticket to Washington, D.C. After the plane landed she realized she had goofed - the guy lives in Washington state, not D.C. He was busted after the troubled teen 'fessed up to airport police and the FBI.

    Science exam a test of love...
    ACCRA (Reuters) - A 30-year-old Ghanaian man could be
    jailed for up to five years after writing his wife's paper in a
    science exam, police in the West African country said on
    Wednesday.
    Kofi Ochere and his wife Christiana Yeboah, 28, a teacher,
    had both registered for the exam at the Presbyterian Secondary
    School in Legon, a suburb of the capital Accra.
    But Ochere, who did not need the qualification, offered to
    write his wife's paper while she wrote his.
    "He feared the woman would not do well. But at the
    examination hall, they noted the paper had a feminine name,"
    police spokesman Beneso Darkwa said.
    The two had been arrested while investigations continued.

    Talking Don't quote me on this...

    New book takes humbug out of quotations
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Showman P.T. Barnum never said
    "There's a sucker born every minute" although he wished he had.
    And Civil War Admiral David Farragut probably never said "Damn
    the Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead" -- words that have inspired
    generations of fighting men.
    To make things even more complicated, it is doubtful that
    Paul Revere warned that "The British are coming" when he would
    have at the time of the American Revolution thought himself
    British, although a revolting one. He probably would have said
    "The Redcoats are coming."
    A new, meticulously researched book of quotations attempts
    to set the record straight on those beloved phrases that have
    crept into everyday use as signs of wisdom and wit, including
    Sigmund Freud's sage advice that "sometimes a cigar is just a
    cigar." (He didn't quite say that, although his biographer
    thinks he would have approved of the idea.)
    "The Yale Book of Quotations" has a simple thesis: famous
    quotes are often misquoted and misattributed. Sometimes they
    are never said at all but are, instead, little fictions that
    have forged their way into public consciousness.
    Take, for example, "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead,"
    a rallying cry supposedly uttered by Farragut during the
    American Civil War battle of Mobile Bay on August 5, 1864.

    Nude shower gel ad with "child-like" model banned
    LONDON (Reuters) - A shower gel advert which featured a
    very young-looking woman sitting naked under a lemon tree was
    slated by Britain's advertising watchdog Wednesday which ruled
    it "offensive and inappropriate."
    Although the model in the television advert for Original
    Source shower gel was an adult, the Advertising Standards
    Authority (ASA) said she might be taken for a child by some
    people.
    "Because some viewers were likely to believe that the model
    was a child, we considered the sexual overtones and nudity in
    the ad were offensive and inappropriate."
    It said the ad must not appear again in its original form.
    Several people had complained about the ad because the
    model looked under 16 and was shown in what they considered to
    be a sexually provocative way.

    Post Ray...stop dancing on the wall!

    China's Great Wall raises defenses against ravers
    BEIJING, Oct 25 (Reuters Life!) - China has banned
    partying, stunts and other "inappropriate behavior" on the
    Great Wall to protect one of its top tourist attractions from
    erosion.
    The Great Wall, which snakes its way across more than 6,400
    km (4,000 miles), receives an estimated 10 million visitors a
    year, mostly to the mere 10 km opened to tourists at Badaling,
    the nearest stretch to Beijing.
    More adventurous visitors climb wilder, crumblier sections
    that are not officially open to the public and stretches near
    the capital have become popular sites for summer raves.
    The new rules, issued by the State Council, or China's
    cabinet, prohibit the driving of vehicles on the wall or group
    activities such as parties.
    "Inappropriate tourist exploration has caused damage to the
    Great Wall and its historical features," the government's Web
    site on Wednesday cited a State Council official as saying.

    Exclamation Missing digit........

    VIENNA, Oct 24 (Reuters) - A Viennese man cut off his ring
    finger and presented the digit, still holding his wedding band,
    to his ex-wife after an acrimonious divorce, Austrian news
    agency APA reported on Tuesday.
    Charged with dangerous harassment and assault for the act,
    he told a preliminary hearing he did not regret having cut off
    the finger and had chosen deliberately not to reattach it.
    "It was an act of breaking free," the man was quoted as
    saying. He did not miss his finger, could work well without it
    and did not plan on getting married again anyway, he said.

    I know you all are thinking it, so I will just say it: brings new meaning to the phrase "giving her the finger".

    October 27, 2006 -- The high school in Swartz Creek, Mich., was evacuated after a plastic bottle with foul-smelling contents was found in the men's bathroom. "Two police officers and three members of the bomb squad refused to go near it or touch it, and that was good enough for me," a school administrator said of the decision to send students home. Lab tests later revealed the bottle contained spoiled chocolate milk - cleaned out of a student's locker and accidentally left behind.
