    OSLO, Norway (AP) - Arild Tofte and Kaare Heggdal know that
    recycling pays, but they weren't quite prepared for the jackpot
    that a scrapped cash machine contained.
    It was still full of cash. Enough to buy a house and take a
    luxury vacation.
    The two Norwegians run a recycling company in the western Norway
    town of Aaroedalen, and had been hired by the Sparebanken Moere
    bank to remove an outdated automatic teller machine, or ATM, from a
    gas station, media reported Wednesday.
    Tofte, 30, said the woman on duty at the gas station was more
    than a little skeptical when two men showed up with a trolley and a
    truck, wanting to remove her ATM.
    "She calmed down when I explained that the machine was empty
    and that we had a contract to pick it up," Tofte told the local
    Romsdals Budstikke newspaper.
    During their rounds to pick up more scrap, they got a call
    saying a security guard was seeking the machine.
    "The guy was apparently a bit agitated," said Tofte. "He was
    very eager to empty the cash from the machine."
    The cash was removed. The bank - which blamed the incident on a
    communications mix-up - didn't say how much was in the ATM. But
    Tofte said the guard who emptied the machine told him it was enough
    to buy a house, take a luxury vacation and still have money to
    burn.

    Wink The Three Amigos?

    Canadian Promotes Cartoon Condoms Against AIDS
    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Using humor to promote safe sex,
    a Canadian television producer on Tuesday launched 20 short
    videos of animated condoms in 41 languages to help fight
    HIV/AIDS around the world. The cartoons, called 'The Three
    Amigos,' are a hit in South Africa, where they have run for
    nearly a year. Now they are available in more than 40 languages
    in an effort to get them aired in Asia, Latin America and
    Eastern Europe as well as elsewhere in Africa.

    Default Think about it...

    Son, we live in a World that needs firefighting equipment, and that equipment needs to be accounted for by people in Fire Department Logistics. Who's gonna do it, you? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for rescue response equipment and you curse the supply guy. You have that luxury, you have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Firefighting equipment shortages, while tragic, were probably the result of poor acquisitioning decisions, and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you...helps make people safe! You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at staff meetings, you WANT me in that position, you NEED me in that position! We use words like PPE, GPC, Hazmat....we use these words as the backbone of a life spent supporting the Fire Department; you use them as a punchline! I have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain myself to a person who puts out fires with the very parts I provide, AND THEN QUESTIONS THE MANNER IN WHICH I PROVIDE IT! I would rather you just said thank you and went on your way; otherwise I suggest you find your own Firefighting Equipment. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

    Notorious Taxis Take Mayor for a Ride
    PRAGUE (Reuters) - Prague Mayor Pavel Bem got a close-up
    look at how the city's notorious taxi drivers operate when he
    went undercover for a ride and was overcharged by some 500
    percent.
    Bem, at the request of the daily Mlada Fronta Dnes, wore a
    disguise and pretended to be a foreigner when he hailed a taxi
    from Old Town Square to take him to Prague Castle, a route
    commonly traveled by the city's tourist masses.
    Upon arrival Bem could not believe his eyes when the
    1.8-miles trip cost a whopping $34.17, about 500 percent over
    the official rate.
    "I expected to be overcharged by maybe 50 or 100 percent.
    But not by 500 percent!" Bem said, adding controls on taxis
    will be increased.
    During another ride the mayor asked to pay in euros and the
    fare rose instantly by 200 percent.

    Man in Batman suit climbs onto roof of Dutch court
    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A man in a Batman suit climbed
    onto the roof of the courthouse in the Dutch city of Utrecht Monday
    morning.
    Police said they weren't worried that the man would jump and
    they planned to ignore him until he came down.
    "He's not hurting anyone up there, and we don't have a lot of
    manpower to waste playing around with him," Utrecht police
    spokesman Thomas Aling said. He said the man would face trespassing
    charges.
    Dutch radio NOS reported the man was part of the group Fathers
    for Justice, which protests unfair treatment of fathers in divorce
    cases. The Dutch arm of the group could not immediately be reached
    for comment.
    In September, a member of the group's British wing wearing a
    Batman suit climbed onto a balcony at Buckingham Palace, Queen
    Elizabeth II's London residence.

    January 18, 2005 -- An art dealer left the city of Seattle $1 million to buy a new fountain, with just one catch — it must contain at least one life-sized statue of a naked man.

    Why?

    January 19, 2005 -- The action-filled video game that Martin White was playing on his TV suddenly became a terrifying 3-D experience when an out-of-control SUV crashed through the wall of his Maine home and slammed into him. Cops say it's a miracle that White, 39, escaped with just cuts and bruises after a 1995 Jeep spun out, skidded several hundred feet down an icy road and barreled into the house.
    "It's not every day you see this kind of thing," said Phillips Fire Chief Glendon Bachelder.

    We can't argue with that, Chief.

    January 22, 2005 -- A Wisconsin teenager believes there's reason to the children's summertime rhyme "no more pencils, no more books" — so he's suing to make it state law. Peer Larson, 17, of Milwaukee claims his summer vacation was ruined last year after he was given pre-calculus homework that caused him "a lot of undue stress." His goal is a statewide ban on summer homework for all schoolkids.

    January 23, 2005 -- A Canadian man has cursed the heads of the National Hockey League — from beyond the grave. Archie Bennitz, 84, an ardent hockey fan from Kanata, Ontario, used his own obituary to blast NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players' Association executive Bob Goodenow, for the lockout that has left fans without hockey this season.
    In his obituary, in the Ottawa Citizen, Bennitz called Bettman and Goodenow "skunks."

    Do NOT Give This Man Batteries...
    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Reuters) - Police were on the
    search on Friday for a thief who made off with three "male
    appendages" from a Vancouver-area sex-toy store and may now be
    looking for batteries.
    A clerk discovered the man stuffing the fake body parts
    into his clothes and asked "if he was going to need batteries
    for these three objects," the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
    said in a news release.
    "The male calmly stated 'no' and then panicked and fled,
    running out of the store with the three objects, minus
    batteries," the police statement said.

    Israeli Women Lawmakers See Red Over Rabbi's Ruling
    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Female legislators in Israel have
    seen red after a leading rabbi compared women who wear the
    color to prostitutes.
    Protesting against a ritual ruling by Rabbi Eliyahu
    Abergil, head of the rabbinical court in the southern city of
    Beersheba, banning Jewish women from dressing in red, several
    woman lawmakers wore the color in parliament Monday.
    "It's not up to a rabbi to tell us to whether to wear black
    or red or any other color," said Erela Golan, a legislator from
    the Shinui party who organized the protest. "Just because we
    wear red doesn't mean we are prostitutes."

    Newspaper Sacks Reporter Over Fake Yahoo Baby
    BUCHAREST, Romania (Reuters) - A Romanian tabloid said on
    Monday it had fired a reporter for making up a story about a
    couple who named their son Yahoo as a sign of gratitude for
    meeting over the Internet.
    Bucharest daily Libertatea published a story this month
    saying two Romanians had named their baby for the popular Web
    site and printed a picture of his birth certificate. The news
    was published internationally, including by Reuters.
    "It was the reporter's child's birth certificate, which he
    modified," said Simona Ionescu, Libertatea's deputy
    editor-in-chief. "We fired him."
    She said Ion Garnod, who had worked for the paper for
    several years, had admitted inventing the story to look good.
    "If it were real, it would have been a good story indeed,"
    Ionescu said.

    Man Survives 35 Days Lost in Mushroom Cave
    PARIS (Reuters) - A Frenchman lost in a labyrinth of
    disused mushroom caves said he had survived 35 days by eating
    rotten wood and clay, after being rescued only thanks to a
    teachers' strike.
    Jean-Luc Josuat-Verges, 48, told French newspapers he had
    gone to the deserted caves at Madiran in the Pyrenees in
    December seeking isolation during a spell of depression which
    had left him considering suicide.
    While wandering through the cave network his flashlight
    stopped working, and he was unable to find his way out.
    His abandoned car was found 35 days later by three children
    who were not at school because their teachers were on strike.
    The children alerted police who rescued Josuat-Verges from the
    caves. French media said he had lost 40 pounds and was "weak."

    Default Wherefore art thou Romeo?

    Husband Commits Suicide, Then Wife Wakes from Coma
    ROME (Reuters) - An Italian pensioner committed suicide
    after his wife fell into a coma, but just hours after he killed
    himself the woman woke up, Italian media reported on Saturday.
    Recalling the end of "Romeo and Juliet," the 70-year-old
    man, Ettore, who had sat by his wife's bedside for four months
    after she slipped into a coma following a heart attack, finally
    gave up hope and gassed himself in the garage of his family
    home.
    Less than a day later, his wife, Rossana, woke up in her
    hospital bed in Padua and immediately asked for him.
    The northern town of Padua lies just 40 miles from Verona,
    where star-crossed lover Romeo killed himself believing Juliet
    to have died. But minutes later Juliet woke up and seeing Romeo
    dead, stabbed herself.

    By KEVIN O'HANLON
    Associated Press Writer
    MILFORD, Neb. (AP) - Urban dwellers who enjoy dining on filet
    mignon at five-star restaurants would probably just as soon not
    know about David Dickinson's dilemma.
    Bad for the appetite, you know.
    But Dickinson, who makes his living in the cattle business, has
    an environmental problem on his hands that is vexing state
    officials: a 2,000-ton pile of burning cow manure.
    Dickinson owns and manages Midwest Feeding Co. about 20 miles
    west of Lincoln that takes in as many as 12,000 cows at a time from
    farmers and ranchers and fattens them for market.
    However, the bovine byproducts from the massive operation
    resulted in a dung pile measuring 100 feet long, 30 feet high and
    50 feet wide that spontaneously combusted about two months ago and
    continues to smolder despite Herculean attempts to douse it.
    While city folks might have trouble imagining a dung pile of
    such proportions, they are common sites in rural states.
    In July, crews fighting a blaze in a three-acre manure lagoon at
    a dairy farm in Washington smothered the flames with more of the
    same - a blanket of wet cow manure.
    In December, Montana officials ordered the owner of a horse
    feedlot to extinguish a large manure fire that sent a stench over a
    nearby town.
    The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality has informed
    Dickinson that his smoldering dung pile violates clean-air laws and
    is working with him to find the best solution to extinguish it,
    said agency spokesman Rich Webster.
    Simply dumping water on the heap is not the answer, Webster
    said.
    "There would be concerns about runoff to any nearby water
    source," Webster said.
    Dickinson first tried using heavy equipment to spread out the
    smoldering pile and extinguish the fire.
    "But the problem was, it started in another spot," he said.
    "We've also had the fire department out a couple of times."
    And still it burns.
    No one is sure how the fire started, but a common theory is that
    heat from the decomposing manure deep inside the pile eventually
    ignited the manure.
    Wilma Roth, who manages a restaurant along Interstate 80 about a
    mile north of the feedlot, said her customers have complained about
    the smoke, which wafts for miles.
    "I'd just as soon forget about it," she said.
    Dickinson said the smoke is not particularly malodorous -
    although that comes from a man who works full-time around manure.
    "I guess it's just all perspective," he said. "To me, it just
    smells like smoke. I really don't know how to describe it."
    Decades ago, most farmers and ranchers kept their own cows and
    pigs until they were shipped to market and slaughtered into filet
    mignon, hamburger, pork chops and bacon.
    And with all those animals spread far apart at thousands of
    farms, it was easier to dispose of the manure.
    But huge feedlots - were animals are shipped to fatten on a
    high-grain diet for their last several months - have become
    commonplace.
    Dickinson has an average of 12,000 animals on hand, each eating
    about 25 pounds of feed daily, resulting in as much as nine pounds
    of manure a day per animal - some 54 tons every 24 hours.
    Most big feedlots spread the manure over farm fields or compost
    it to later spread or sell commercially to gardeners.
    Farmers in several states are experimenting with using the
    methane gas from livestock manure to produce electricity. The
    manure is heated and produces methane gas as it breaks down. The
    gas is collected and used to power a generator, which sends
    electricity onto a power grid.
    Dickinson acknowledged that while some folks see the humor in
    his predicament, he takes the fire seriously.
    "It's a nuisance, and obviously we are trying to get it
    resolved," he said. "Everybody's been really patient."

    A bank robber in the southern Dutch town of Chaam was able to subtract the cost of his gun from his fine, the Daily Telegraph of London reported.

    The unnamed stickup man, 46, managed to convince a criminal court in Breda, near the Belgian border, that the $2,600 he spent on his pistol was a legitimate business expense.

    The judge accordingly reduced the amount of restitution from $8,750, the amount stolen from the bank, to $6,150, before sentencing the robber to four years in prison earlier this week.

    "You can compare criminal acts to normal business activities, where you must invest to make profits, and thus you have costs," explained Leendert de Lange, a spokesman for the national prosecutor's office.

    De Lange went further to state that drug dealers could also deduct the cost of vehicles used to make deliveries of illicit substances — within reason.

    OK Ed...Have fun.

    January 30, 2005 -- A South Carolina police officer blasted a stun gun at a distraught 75-year-old woman in a nursing home. The Rock Hill police say Officer Hattie Jean Macon acted prematurely in using the 50,000-volt Taser on Margaret Kimbrell. Macon was called to the nursing home after Kimbrell refused to leave. She was upset because the staff would not tell her where her sick friend was.
