    Question The ACID test?

    Mystery acid attack hits banknotes
    FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German banknotes have been falling to
    pieces due to a mysterious acid attack in recent months, a
    central bank spokesman said Thursday.
    Police are investigating why more than 1,000, banknotes
    worth between five and 100 euros ($6.38-$128) have crumbled
    shortly after being withdrawn from cash machines, said
    Bundesbank spokesman Wolf-Ruediger Bengs.
    "We've never seen a case like this," he said.
    The first incident was reported in Berlin in June. Tests
    have shown the notes were contaminated with a powerful acid,
    and the Bundesbank has ruled out problems with the printing
    process.
    "At the moment it's still unclear if we're talking about
    unintentional damage or a conscious manipulation," the
    spokesman added.

    South Korea moves to legalise miniskirts
    SEOUL, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Hot pants and miniskirts will soon
    be legal in South Korea.
    The country is in the final stages of revising an indecency
    law that people from wearing revealing outfits and was once
    enforced by ruler-wielding police during authoritarian
    governments in the 1970s, officials said.
    "The law for excessive exposure does not match our current
    society," said Kim Jae-kwang, an official with the Korea
    Legislation Research Institute.
    Under authoritarian rule, police could arrest or fine women
    for their fashion choices. They also took scissors to men whose
    hair they felt was too long and tossed people in jail for
    unauthorised dancing.
    The rules stayed on the books as South Korea moved to an
    open democracy in the late 1980s, but were no longer enforced.
    Now miniskirts are about as common as traffic jams in the
    capital of Seoul and police have long given up on measuring the
    distance from knees to hemlines.

    Exclamation ??????????????? Huh?

    "Misogynist" Austrian urinals flushed out to eBay
    VIENNA, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Four urinals shaped like a woman's
    lips went on sale on eBay on Thursday after being removed from a
    public toilet in Vienna following protests from women's groups
    who said they were sexist.
    Designed by Viennese artist Rudolf Scheffel for the
    "toilet-bar Vienna" next to the National Opera, the urinals
    featured lips covered in red, orange or blue lipstick, a bright
    red tongue and gleaming white teeth.
    The urinals were in the toilets for three years but raised
    an outcry in the run-up to Austria's Oct. 1 parliamentary
    election when they were used by political party supporters
    attending rallies nearby.
    Women's rights campaigners described the urinals as sexist
    and misogynist. They will be restored to their original
    condition before being sold, the toilet's operator said on
    auction Web site eBay.
    "Each urinal will, of course, be meticulously cleaned," the
    seller said. "The artist himself will sandblast it, brush the
    mouth's teeth, and give them a new varnish."

    November 3, 2006 -- When a cop in Reno, Nev., pulled over an SUV that had been creeping along, weaving and stopping in the middle of moving traffic, he found a 7-year-old boy behind the wheel and his drunken dad in the passenger seat. The father explained that he was teaching his son to drive because he was too wasted. Daddy was jailed on child-endangerment charges; his son was taken home to Mommy.

As part of the game, when asked to name the stupidest thing he'd ever done, he answered, "Shot a guy in the head." All was just fine until his girlfriend mentioned the remark to cops in Jackson, Mich., who were investigating a series of break-ins, and they busted Hall for an unsolved murder

    November 10, 2006 -- Here's a genuinely foul twist on being rear-ended by a bus. An Ohio family is suing Greyhound over a load of human waste that one of its buses dumped on their SUV while they were traveling on an interstate highway in Toledo. According to the lawsuit, waste from the bus' sanitary tank went through the SUV's open windows and sunroof, drenching the four unlucky occupants and contaminating the inside and outside of their vehicle with its contents.

    Default 'heavy'-duty Rescue

    November 10, 2006 -- The City Council has revived a proposal to buy special "jumbo" ambulances for the morbidly obese, officials told The Post. The idea for the ambulances - which can easily transport people over 500 pounds - has languished in the council for years, but now lawmakers plan to hold a hearing on the issue on Tuesday. It was spurred by the plight of labor leader, 420-pound Mark Rosenthal, who suffered a stroke in 2003. The District Council 37 representative was forced to lie strapped on an ambulance floor, because the stretcher couldn't fit him. "We have to ensure that no one has to ride on the floor of an ambulance again; we would not stand for it for any protected group," said Councilman James Sanders Jr. (D-Queens), the bill's sponsor. "I'm insisting that the city has one so if there is a call we know that we can save someone's life. We read of these cases where we have to cut a wall to save someone's life then we don't have a way to transport them." Miguel Martinez, chairman of the council's Fire and Criminal Justice Committee, added that the council wants to ensure the Fire Department is equipped for every New Yorker, morbidly obese or not. "We've seen pictures of cranes used to lift people," Martinez (D-Manhattan) said. "And in this city we should be able to transport these citizens." A spokesman for American Medical Response said the company developed its "bariatric" ambulance because the demand was growing. The vehicle costs about $50,000 more than their average, $75,000-$100,000 ambulances. "Generally the use of the vehicles are prearranged," said Eric Berthel, spokesman for the company. "We have placed them in our larger markets and we were among the first to recognize the need for this kind of service." Rosenthal said the ambulances would prove to be cost-effective for the city and could come in handy for transporting multiple people in a catastrophic event. "There is a use for them," he said. "The only difference is they are lion-size." Rosenthal said he believed that buying the supersized ambulances would "end the last vestige of discrimination." "It's going to save lives," he said. "You can't put a price on that." But it appears city officials aren't eager to buy jumbo ambulances just yet. FDNY spokesman Frank Gribbon said the agency had in the last few years been acquiring stretchers that could lift people up to 700 pounds and are used in regular ambulances. "We have more than 164 ambulances equipped with these stretchers," Gribbon said. Ambulances had been equipped with stretchers that could lift people up to 400 pounds. "We feel this is adequate for now," Gribbon added.

    Model Pope? Church Leader Poses For Calendar

    POSTED: 12:35 pm EST November 9, 2006

    VATICAN CITY -- It promises to be the most famous papal calendar since Pope Gregory the 13th.

    He already has been spotted as a fashion follower, from his signature shades and shoes to his ermine trimmed velvet robes. But now Pope Benedict XVI is trying his hand at modeling -- for a 2007 calendar to come out later this month.

    An Italian Catholic weekly said the calendar features 14 original poses of the 79-year-old pontiff with his shock of white hair. They were taken during an entire day of shooting this summer at Castel Gandolfo, the pope's country residence near Rome.

    But while many VIP calendars often feature celebrities in flashy or scanty attire, the papal version is as chaste as it is charitable. Proceeds from the photos of the pope dressed in his traditional white cassock and white skull cap will go to a mission in Rwanda.

    For each calendar sold, 1 euro ($1.28) will go to the charity. The calendar comes with the magazine for an extra charge of 5 euros ($6.40.) It hits Italian newsstands on Nov. 23.

    Man Says Bibles Stopped Bullet

    POSTED: 11:06 am EST November 8, 2006

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 54-year-old Florida man credits two small Bibles in his shirt pocket with saving his life when they stopped a bullet.

    The man, whose name was withheld because his attackers are still at large, told Orange Park police that two men he didn't recognize ambushed him with a rifle as he carried bags of garbage to a trash bin.

    He said his attackers then fled in opposite directions.

    The man said the bullet was stopped by two New Testaments that he was carrying in his shirt pocket to give to friends. Police took them as evidence.

    The Florida Times-Union reported that aside from a red mark and a pain in his chest, the man was not injured.

Sheriff David Smith of Columbiana County, Ohio, is fuming about plans for an inmate pizza party during the Ohio State-Michigan football game, but said he isn't sure he can do much about it, because the jail is run privately by a Massachusetts company. A notice obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator newspaper says each inmate will get three slices of pizza on game day, Nov. 18, as a way to show support for the Buckeyes.

    Frozen Pigs Fly Onto LA Freeway

    POSTED: 1:42 am EST November 14, 2006

    LOS ANGELES -- A big rig collided with a box truck carrying a load of frozen pigs on southbound Interstate 5 near Los Angeles on Monday night, scattering the carcasses all over the roadway.

    The California Highway Patrol said the pigs were strewn over 80 feet of the Golden State Freeway near Sylmar.

    No one was hurt in the collision, which was reported shortly after 7:30 p.m. Monday.

    Authorities closed two truck lanes to investigate the cause of the crash.

    Caltrans has brought in a dump truck and loader to pick up the carcasses.

    November 14, 2006 -- Sanitation worker David Voight was scavenging through a city scrap heap in Neenah, Wis., when he found $1,900 stuffed in envelopes and attached by magnets to the underside of a metal desk. He turned the envelopes over to police, waited the required 90 days and then went to collect the unclaimed cash. But, to his dismay, city officials insist it belongs to them - which Voight says is like "being told that because you're so honest, we're going to pat you on the back and take your money."

    Naked Pie Prank Gets Jail Guards Canned. Inmate Ran Around Nude In Exchange For Pie

    POSTED: 12:42 pm EST November 13, 2006

    ADRIAN, Mich. -- A naked pie prank has cost a couple of Michigan jail guards their jobs.

    Sheriff Larry Richardson has fired two Lenawee County Jail officers for urging an inmate to strip and run nude around his cellblock in exchange for a piece of cherry pie.

    Richardson said the guards were eating, when the conversation turned to what a prisoner might do for pie. The inmate said he was willing to streak and was allowed out of his cell. Richardson said the officers considered it a prank.

    No criminal charges have been filled against the guards. But their union is challenging the punishment as too severe.

    Richardson said the firing of the officers was recommended by the county's labor attorney. Richardson said he learned of the August incident in a letter from another inmate.

    November 16, 2006 -- A handcuffed suspect being questioned about a jewelry heist escaped from a police interrogation room in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Nine days later, when cops tracked him down, he was still wearing the cuffs. He had managed to sever the chain, but couldn't free himself entirely from the restraints

    TV Meteorologist Fired After Nude Photo Appears On Web
    Singleton's Photo Appeared on MySpace.com

    POSTED: 10:40 am EST November 17, 2006

    ROANOKE, Va. -- A WSLS-TV meteorologist was fired because his nude photo was posted on the Internet.

    The NBC affliate dismissed Jamey Singleton on Thursday after the photograph appeared on MySpace.com.

    The station's interim general manager, Shane Moreland, said in a statement that Singleton broke the morals clause of his contract, which stipulates that he must not be involved in anything deemed "offensive or out of line with community standards."

    "What shocks and what offends -- that's really up to them," Singleton, 28, told The Roanoke Times. "I can't blame them if ... after everything that's happened they said, 'That's the straw that broke the camel's back."'

    According to Singleton, the picture was taken as a joke a few months ago at a friend's home, where he was getting ready for work.

    After going through treatment for heroin addiction he stopped hanging out with some friends, including the one who posted the photo on MySpace on Tuesday, Singleton said. When Singleton heard about the picture, he notified MySpace and the picture was removed within an hour.

    However, the photo was e-mailed to several of Singleton's co-workers and to Moreland, Singleton said.

    This was obviously the "arse biter". And I can very much understand and agree. When I joined Vienna FD, I accepted similar "conditions" when I was sworn in. Something about not engaging in activities "which may be injurious to the Department." Although at the same time, I commend Mr Singleton for taking direct action and requesting the removal of the picture.
