    Vampyre club seeks new recruits
    LONDON (Reuters) - Vampyres are prowling for new recruits
    in London as Halloween approaches to partake in wild parties,
    trips to Transylvania and bat spotting nights -- but
    coffin-dwelling, blood drinkers need not apply.
    With a penchant for custom-made fangs, striking make-up and
    gothic clothes, members of the London Vampyre Group (LVG) say
    it's their fascination with the romantic notion of vampires,
    rather than any darker intent, that draws them together.
    "People who think they're un-dead, hundreds of years old,
    or that you have to drink blood if you're interested in the
    dark side of things, we can put them right on that," LVG's Mick
    Smith, 57, told Reuters in an interview in a London pub.
    "The drinking of blood is a taboo. It's a point of view
    that we don't tend to represent, but we think it is something
    that should be articulated," said Smith, wearing a somber black
    suit.
    They may be conservatively attired lawyers or computer
    programmers by day, but Vampyres are transformed by flamboyant
    clothes after dark for the Dance of the Damned Vampire Ball and
    Requiem of the Resurrected parties with gothic belly dancing.

    Lightbulb Times Up!

    Want to diary your death? Ask online
    By Sara Ledwith LONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters Life) - With
    Halloween looming, 'tis the season to be morbid and people
    wishing to know their expiry date can indulge in some online
    trick-or-treating at websites which predict the date of their
    death.
    "I'm sorry, but your time has expired! Have a nice day,"
    says the "sadistic mode" on http://www.deathclock.com.
    The site invites visitors to enter their date of birth,
    smoking habits, height, and weight in exchange for a pop-up
    ticker which counts down the seconds they have left.
    Users can influence the verdict by inputting their mood,
    and the clock - "the Internet's friendly reminder that life is
    slipping away" - offers cheering sponsored links to promote
    healthier living, funeral ringtones, pet memorials, and other
    morbid merchandise.
    "The Death Clock makes money and helps ensure I don't run
    out of Pepsi One and video games," writes its anonymous author,
    who adds that he, or she, is "also pro-Life" but does not
    elucidate on his, or her, own life expectancy.

    Arrow Ever have this feeling before....?

    "Sexsomniacs" puzzle medical researchers
    LONDON, Oct 25 (Reuters Life!) - Researchers are struggling
    to understand a rare medical condition where sufferers
    unknowingly demand, or actually have, sex while asleep, New
    Scientist magazine reported on Wednesday.
    Research into sexsomnia -- making sexual advances toward
    another person while asleep -- has been hampered as sufferers
    are so embarrassed by the problem they tend not to own up to
    it, while doctors do not ask about it.
    As yet there is no cure for the condition, which often
    leads to difficulties in relationships.
    "It really bothers me that I can't control it," Lisa
    Mahoney told the magazine. "It scares me because I don't think
    it has anything to do with the partner. I don't want this
    foolish condition to hurt us in the long run."
    Most researchers view sexsomnia as a variant of
    sleepwalking, where sufferers are stuck between sleep and
    wakefulness, though sexsomniacs tend to stay in bed rather than
    get up and walk about.

    Red face Dead...but making millions

    Cobain bumps off Elvis as top-earning dead celeb
    NEW YORK, Oct 24 (Reuters Life!) - Rock 'n' roll legend
    Elvis Presley ceded his crown to Nirvana lead singer Kurt
    Cobain on Forbes.com's list as the top-earning dead celebrity.
    The list, published on Tuesday, said grunge rocker Cobain
    earned $50 million between October 2005 and October 2006.
    Presley wound up in the No. 2 slot with $42 million, down from
    last year's $45 million.
    Forbes.com bases its dollar amounts on licensing deals for
    using the deceased celebrities' work or image in advertising or
    elsewhere.
    This was Cobain's first time on the list in its six years
    of publication. Presley has ruled the roost since its
    inception, said Forbes.com staff writer Lacey Rose.
    Cobain's coup was due to his widow, actress and singer
    Courtney Love, who sold a 25-percent stake in the Seattle
    grunge group's song catalog to New York music publishing
    company Primary Wave.

    Vermont College goes green with cow manure
    NEW YORK, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Vermont's Green Mountain
    College is getting greener with a new program that uses cow
    manure to generate power.
    The 750-student Green Mountain College in Poultney aims to
    cut its greenhouse gas emissions by joining Central Vermont
    Public Service's Cow Power program, which harvests waste from
    local farms.
    "This initiative helps the college do its part to address
    global warming by reducing its carbon emissions by
    approximately 3500 metric tons per year, or the equivalent of
    removing 758 passenger cars, from use for a year," the liberal
    arts college said in a statement on Thursday.
    The program capitalizes on a common byproduct from one of
    the northeastern state's top industries, with a typical Vermont
    dairy cow producing around 13 gallons of manure daily,
    according to Cow Power spokesman Steve Costello.
    Vermont boasts the highest cow-to-people ratio in the
    United States, with 300,000 cattle and calves and just over
    600,000 people, according to state figures.
    High U.S. fuel costs have spurred biofuel and other
    alternative energy and sustainable initiatives in the world's
    top oil consumer.

    School Sends Captain Underpants Girls Home. Girls Dressed Up For Superhero Day

    POSTED: 11:40 am EDT October 26, 2006

    LONG BEACH, N.Y. -- Captain Underpants may be a superhero, but he isn't welcome at one suburban New York school.

    Three 17-year-old girls were told to leave Long Beach High School when they showed up on the school's Superhero Day dressed as the subject of the bestselling children's books.

    Captain Underpants is a superhero from popular books that has battled, among other things, talking toilets and the infamous Professor Poopypants.

    The girls, Chelsea Horowitz, Ashley Imhof and Eliana Levin, wore beige leotards and nude stockings under white briefs and red capes. They were completely covered.

    Principal Nicholas Restivo said he knows they weren't naked, but it appeared that way, so he sent them home. He didn't like the way they looked.

    Other students were allowed to stay at school. They were dressed as Superman, Wonderwoman and other well-known superheroes.

    One of the girls said she doesn't understand the fuss. Honor student Horowitz said of the costume, "They're not see-through or anything."

    The principal said the girls could have worn gym shorts or even called someone to bring clothes to school for them. But the teens said that they felt forced to leave school. They all went home.

    Horowitz said she and her friends did not want to wear "someone else's hand-me-downs" and that they had nobody else who was available to drop off clothes to school, Newsday reported.

    Superhero Day was part of Long Beach High School's Senior Week. There were other thematic days during the week.

    October 28, 2006 -- Police in Sofia, Bulgaria, were called to a schoolyard to break up a brawl involving 23 teenage girls battling each other with brass knuckles, beer bottles and chains. The teens had cut classes so they could fight - over a handsome male student. The boy's name was not released - and it was not revealed whether he knew he was the prize.

    October 30, 2006 -- A 15-year-old Florida boy stole an Orlando city bus and casually drove it along its regular route, picking up passengers and collecting fares. Ritchie Calvin Davis, who is too young to drive, bragged to the cops who busted him, "I drove that bus better than most of the [regular] drivers could. There isn't a scratch on it. "I know how to start it, drive it, lower it, raise it." Davis has a similar prior rap, details of which were unavailable.

    Happy Halloween! October 31, 2006 -- AMERICUS, Ga. So many bats have infested the town's historic district that the sky turns black with each sunset and the neighborhood is calling on Batman to come to the rescue. That's what the local bat remover goes by. George Perkins often makes public appearances in the caped crusader's costume and drives his own Batmobile - a retro-styled Chrysler Prowler with bat emblems. Callers to his office in Eufaula, Ala., known as Bat Cave 1, or Union Springs, Ala., known as Bat Cave 2, hear the "Batman" TV show theme while on hold.

    Sore Neck, Aching Back? Could Be 'Office-Itis'
    Many Employees Sick Of Stress At Work

    POSTED: 12:06 pm EST October 31, 2006

    Do you suffer from "office-itis"?

    If you are always nodding off at your desk you just might, according to a new survey.

    If you keep a bottle of aspirin by your stapler and regularly see a masseuse for neck and back pain, you are not alone. The survey reported that "office-itis" is actually a common problem -- workplace overexertion.

    Nearly two-thirds of surveyed U.S. office workers (66 percent) said they experience some physical problems as a result of job-related stress or exertion.

    "I've seen a number of patients with various aches and pains due to stress, improper posture and use of tools in the workforce," a press release quoted Dr. Jeffrey Mendelson, chief of orthopedics, St. John Macomb Hospital, in Warren, Mich., as saying.

    He recommended an ergonomic workspace and frequent breaks.

    "I recommend frequently getting up from their desk to get the blood flowing," Mendelson said.

    The most common ailment was fatigue, followed closely by stress-related headaches. More than one-quarter of respondents said they've experienced back pain or neck strain.

    Employees report fatigue, tension headaches, aches and pains and even vision problems.

    Here are some reasons your co-workers might be frequently calling in sick or racking up hefty doctor bills, according to the survey:

    40 percent of office workers have experienced fatigue as a result of job-related stress or exertion.
    35 percent have had stress-related headaches.
    27 percent have gotten back pain, while 26 percent have felt neck strain.
    18 percent reported repetitive motion injuries (i.e. wrist sprain, hand cramp, etc.) as a result of at-work stress.

    Other listed physical ailments included stomach discomfort (17 percent) and vision problems (15 percent).
    Only about one in three office workers (34 percent) said they had not experienced any physical problems due to job-related stress or exertion.

    Workplace massages ranked as the most wanted remedy, according to 46 percent of workers, followed by ergonomic desk chairs at 36 percent. Nearly one-quarter said larger or adjustable computer screens would alleviate some of their pain, while 27 percent would rather take more breaks to relieve stress.

    And what causes office stress? Many workers said that they would change some things about their jobs in order to reduce stress. Dealing with office politics was cited the most, according to 43 percent of office workers. Dealing with problem clients came in second place, with 25 percent, and handling a difficult boss or client was third, with 21 percent of office workers wishing to alter these aspects of their job

    But an employee can dream, right? When surveyed, the employees said there are many things they would rather do than being at work.

    Almost three-quarters of U.S. office workers (71 percent) would prefer to spend time with their family (56 percent) and/or friends (54 percent) if their jobs required less effort, thus giving them more free time and energy outside of work hours.
    Exercise was mentioned by many, with 61 percent of workers wanting to burn off their office frustrations, while 57 percent would travel and 55 percent would choose to read.

    36 percent would volunteer.
    35 percent would go to the movies or sleep.
    34 percent would kick back in front of the television.

    Swingline Workplace Tools, a unit of ACCO Brands Corp., sponsored the study and polled 909 adults nationwide who work in an office setting.

    November 1, 2006 -- Great balls of fire!

    A man celebrating Halloween in a bar in Suamico, Wis., suffered burns when his homemade sheep costume caught fire. Fire officials believe the costume - made of cotton balls and glue - had been accidentally ignited by another bar patron's cigarette.

    November 2, 2006 -- A sheriff's deputy in Columbus, Ind., followed his instincts - and his nose - and ended up catching two cheesy thieves. He was questioning witnesses about the knifepoint holdup of a pizza deliverywoman when he became suspicious and followed one of them home. That's where he caught a whiff of a pepperoni-and-sausage pie and knew he was on the right track. A search uncovered the purloined pizzas and cash.

    Cool

    New weapon in battle of the bulge...
    SYDNEY, Nov 2 (Reuters Life!) - Size really does count,
    just ask Australian underwear maker AussieBum which has just
    launched the "Wonderjock" for men who want to look bigger.
    Since the launch seven days ago, AussieBum says it has sold
    50,000 pairs of "Wonderjock," mostly on its Web site
    www.aussiebum.com and a handful of stores around the world.
    "The design of the underwear, separates and lifts. The
    fabric cup protrudes everything out in front instead of down
    toward the ground," said "Wonderjock" designer Sean Ashby.
    "There is no padding, rings or strings," said Ashby, a

    Noodle-bar robber pays bill before getaway
    TOKYO (Reuters) - Police are looking for a robber who held
    up a noodle bar in western Japan then paid for his meal and
    waited for his change before making off.
    The young man ate a bowl of "ramen" noodles and a side
    order of fried chicken at a restaurant in the city of Osaka on
    Wednesday then produced a knife and forced a waitress to hand
    over takings of 46,000 yen ($393), the Sports Nippon newspaper
    said.
    When the woman demanded he pay for his meal, the robber
    gave her 1,000 yen and waited for his 100 yen change before
    running away, the paper said.

    Ex-inmate spotted trick-or-treating in prison suit
    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Nov 1 (Reuters Life!) - Jail officials
    feared an escapee was on the loose on Halloween night when a
    former inmate was spotted trick-or-treating in his orange
    prison jumpsuit, authorities said.
    A corrections officer spotted the former inmate, Oscar
    Aponte, 32, going house to house with his son in his hometown
    of Peekskill, north of New York City.
    The officer alerted the Westchester County Jail and the
    prison was locked down while all inmates were accounted for,
    said Susan Tolchin, chief adviser to the county executive.
    Authorities believed the former inmate smuggled the orange
    jumpsuit out of the jail when he was released in September
    after a four-month stay for a probation violation.
    "It was a really poor choice of costume," Tolchin said.
    "We're investigating how he got it out because when they are
    discharged they leave with their belongings in a clear plastic
    bag."

    Police on lookout for model behavior...
    By Krittivas Mukherjee MUMBAI, Nov 2 (Reuters Life!) -
    Indian police have an unusual undercover surveillance job this
    week, scanning the ramps and observing models at a top fashion
    show to check that no one intentionally displays too much
    flesh.
    Police in plain clothes mingled with India's
    cigar-chomping, crystal-clinking class at the Lakme Fashion
    Week, after busting zippers and slipping bustiers at the show's
    last edition sparked a morality debate in the conservative
    country.
    "We are keeping an eye on each show. We don't want any bad
    example to be set," said Sanjay Mohite, deputy commissioner of
    police in Mumbai, India's financial and entertainment capital.
    In March, a series of "wardrobe malfunctions" at the show
    saw models exposing their breasts and buttocks, sending
    newspapers and television channels into a frenzy of excitement.
    Indian police even launched an investigation into the
    incidents, but later concluded that the clothes had come undone
    by accident.
