    Burglars summon police for help when keys to getaway car are stolen

    Canadian Press Friday, February 25, 2005

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - When two Danish burglars realized someone had stolen the keys to their getaway car, they reacted like honest citizens and called the police.

    Police said they were only too happy to help, and arrested them after they confessed to breaking and entering.

    The men, identified only as an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old, broke into a summer cabin late Wednesday near Kaldred, 90 kilometres west of capital Copenhagen.

    As they carried their haul to the car, they were confronted by a passer-by who had witnessed the break-in and insisted that they return the stolen property.

    To ensure they couldn't get away, the passer-by took the keys from their car and refused to return them.

    "The two young men then called us and said they needed our help getting their keys back," Chief Supt. Asger Larsen said Thursday.

    He said the two realized that without the keys, they would have to leave their car at the scene, which would put the police on their trail and lead to their arrest anyway.

    "It's a pretty straightforward case for us, since this time, the thieves actually reported the robbery," Larsen said.

    He declined to release the names of the suspects or the passer-by.

    February 27, 2005 -- For one Cuban man, lightning doesn't just strike twice, it strikes five times. Farmer Jorge Marquez, recently hit by his fifth bolt in 22 years, says he is cursed and that lightning follows him. He said when he is hit he feels "like something very cold enters my body or as if I'm a hot iron being immersed in cold water."

    LUCKNOW, India, Feb 26 (Reuters) - An Indian teenager from
    one of the country's most backward states appears to have
    fooled governments, the media and even the president into
    believing he had topped the world in a NASA science exam.
    In a country hungry for international recognition,
    17-year-old Saurabh Singh was feted as a national hero after
    announcing he had won NASA's International Scientist Discovery
    examination, which he said he took at Oxford University.
    The Uttar Pradesh state government rewarded him with a
    500,000 rupee ($11,500) prize and more than 100 members of the
    state's upper house each donated a day's salary to him.
    But as he was at the president's official residence
    awaiting an audience during the week, his story unravelled.
    An Indian news portal, rediff.com, contacted NASA, which
    denied any knowledge of the exam.
    "Right now, no one knows where this examination comes
    from," Rediff quoted NASA education official Dwayne Brown
    saying.
    A meeting planned with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was
    hastily called off and the boy returned to his village of
    Narhai, where he is now under police investigation.
    Singh had also said President Abdul Kalam and Indian
    astronaut Kalpana Chawla, who died in the Columbia shuttle
    explosion in 2003, had sat the test. Kalam's office denies
    this.
    Singh insists he met Kalam, although some Indian newspapers
    say the meeting was cancelled as he waited to go in.
    "It was really inspiring," Singh told Reuters by phone.
    "And let me tell you, he saw my certificate and praised me for
    the achievement, while you all are asking all kinds of
    questions and trying to dub me as a fraud."
    The certificate, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters,
    declared "You are the member of NASA" (sic) and is signed by
    Singh and "Chief of NASA, Cin K. Kif" -- NASA's former
    administrator was Sean O'Keefe. It also lists the name of
    Singh's father, common practice in Indian documents.
    Singh says he flew to London on Indian Airlines -- which
    does not fly to the city -- and took a taxi to Oxford
    University and back every day for the exam from January 4-8, a
    round trip of about 230 km (140 miles).
    Singh told Reuters he stayed in a hotel, but told a Hindi
    language newspaper he stayed at Buckingham Palace.
    The Indian school where he says he sat the preliminary exam
    along with 200,000 others does not exist. The Bansal institute,
    where he says he studied mathematics, has never heard of him.
    Singh cannot produce his passport to back his claim. That,
    he says, is with institute director P.K. Bansal.
    "How can we possess his passport when we don't even know
    him?" Saturday's The Indian Express quoted Bansal saying.

    Post Meet the Beatles?

    HONG KONG (AP) - An upscale Hong Kong grocery store is being
    prosecuted after a customer allegedly discovered 575 beetles in a
    jar of cereal he bought, officials and media reports said Saturday.
    The customer, lawyer Philip Dykes, said the breakfast cereal was
    "too organic for my liking," according to the South China Morning
    Post.
    The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department has charged the
    Great grocer store with providing "food not of the nature,
    substance or quality demanded by the purchaser," said Emily Mak, a
    department spokeswoman.
    The charge carries a maximum fine of 10,000 Hong Kong dollars
    (US$1,282; euro 968) and up to 3 months' imprisonment, according to
    the Apple Daily newspaper.
    The A.S. Watson Group, which runs the store, has pleaded not
    guilty. The company did not return phone calls from The Associated
    Press to comment on the case.
    The lawyer allegedly found the beetles and 17 larvae in the
    plastic jar, which he bought in 2003, Apple reported.

    It Isn't Often You See Breast Cream Used in Public
    BANGKOK (Reuters) - A promotion for breast enhancing cream
    that involved three models having a 15 minute mammary massage
    in public has caused a furor in Thailand, with family groups
    saying it violates traditional values and morality.
    Despite Bangkok's racy reputation as the "anything goes"
    sex capital of southeast Asia, most Thais are uncomfortable
    with public nudity and all newspaper pictures of the
    demonstration had the breasts blurred out.
    "The campaign is just to promote the product without
    considering the damage to society," Ladda Thangsupachai of the
    Cultural Watch Center told the Nation newspaper on Friday.
    "This is taking advantage of society and an irresponsible act."
    Executives of St Herb Co., which makes the "breast
    beautifying" cream, said they laid on the stunt merely to
    counter suggestions their advertising claims were exaggerated.
    The Nation said Ying, one of the models, was embarrassed at
    having to bare herself in front of the cameras, but did believe
    her breasts had become firmer and the gap between them smaller
    as a result of the treatment.

    Firm's Valentine Cards Spark Lovers' Tiffs
    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A pharmaceutical company which sent
    anonymous Valentine's cards to Dutch gynecologists in a
    publicity stunt has been forced to apologize for sparking
    family arguments.
    The doctors and their partners were furious with the
    company -- whose Web site says it mixes "the ingredients for
    health and happiness" -- after the firm sent cards saying "Now
    shall we tell everyone?," De Telegraaf newspaper reported
    Thursday.
    A second card was dispatched to the 800 doctors the next
    day explaining that the first had been a gimmick to promote a
    new product.
    In some cases, the cards caused so much distress that the
    company, Organon, sent apologetic bouquets of flowers, the
    newspaper said.

    We're Here to Bug You: Video Mocks Police
    HAVANA (Reuters) - "Good Morning, we've come to install
    your microphones," an agent says at the door in the opening
    line of an underground video making the rounds in Cuba.
    "In what part of the house do you usually talk bad about
    the government?" he asks the nervous resident, a driver who
    pilfers gasoline and coffee from the state.
    The spoof of Cuba's feared security police is in hot demand
    among Cubans, for whom black jokes and complaints about
    communist bureaucracy is a major pastime.
    Made privately by well-known figures of Cuba's film
    industry, the 15-minute video is being passed around as a DVD.
    While many Cubans are talking about the video, not all have
    seen it because few Cubans have computers and even fewer DVD
    players.
    Films satirizing the state's inefficiency have been
    tolerated in Cuba since the early days of President Fidel
    Castro's government, in power since a 1959 revolution.

    Most Single Japanese Women Want to Stay Unmarried
    TOKYO (Reuters) - Most single Japanese women prefer not to
    marry and believe they can live happily alone for the rest of
    their life, a poll showed Friday, casting another shadow on the
    future of a country plagued by a falling birthrate.
    About seven in ten single Japanese women surveyed by the
    conservative Yomiuri newspaper said they would rather stay
    unwed.
    "The result reflects a recent trend among single women who
    no longer attach social stigma to choosing the single life,"
    the daily said.
    Japan's government is struggling to stem a tumbling
    birthrate and keep the population from shrinking.
    The country's fertility rate -- the average number of
    children born to a woman during her lifetime -- fell to 1.29 in
    2003, the lowest in the post-World War II period.

    Thieves Snatch Diamond Truck at Airport
    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Thieves hijacked an armored truck
    carrying diamonds and jewelry from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport
    Friday and escaped with their haul, Dutch airline KLM said.
    A spokesman declined to put a value on the loss.
    The robbers were heavily armed, a source close to the
    investigation said. The empty truck was later recovered.
    "KLM security staff were threatened during the heist but no
    one was injured," an airline spokesman said.
    Police and airport authorities declined further comment.

    Unbelievable...
    LONDON (Reuters) - A blind man has been arrested in
    Scotland after witnesses reported he sank his teeth into his
    guide dog and kicked her across the road, police said on
    Thursday.
    The incident allegedly occurred outside a busy shopping
    center in the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
    David Todd, 34, is expected to face charges of cruelty to
    animals and breach of the peace.
    A police spokeswoman said the 8-year old dog had been
    handed over to a charity dedicated to guide dogs.
    "When we took her into custody, she had no apparent
    injuries," she added.

    Bin Laden -- a Brand You Can Trust
    GENEVA (Reuters) - Swiss authorities have ruled that a
    Geneva-based half-brother of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden
    has the right to use the family name as a trademark.
    But businessman Yeslam Bin Ladin said he had no immediate
    plans to bring out any goods under the name.
    "I don't intend to exploit the brand Bin Ladin commercially
    for the time being, but registering it will prevent others from
    using my name to bad effect," the daily Tribune de Geneve
    quoted him as saying.
    In July 2002 the Federal Intellectual Property Institute
    revoked the trademark which it had initially granted in August
    2001 -- a month before al Qaeda launched suicide plane attacks
    on the United States that killed 3,000 people.
    In revoking it, the Swiss authorities argued that the
    trademark could "morally wound" Swiss and disrupt public order.

    Naked Frolic Lands Prosecutor in Jail
    KEY WEST, Fla. (Reuters) - A drunken Florida prosecutor who
    streaked across a motel parking lot and mistakenly jumped into
    a stranger's car landed in the slammer, a state attorney's
    office spokesman said on Wednesday.
    After tossing back a few drinks with colleagues last
    weekend, Monroe County assistant prosecutor Albert "A.J."
    Tasker, 28, stripped off his clothes as a prank and headed
    toward what he thought was a friend's vehicle.
    But Tasker jumped into the back seat of the wrong car,
    where a woman was waiting for her boyfriend. The woman
    screamed, the boyfriend arrived and Key West police arrested
    Tasker.
    "The devil made him do it," said Matt Helmerick, spokesman
    for the Monroe County state attorney in Key West.
    Tasker, who was hired in December, was jailed on
    misdemeanor charges of disorderly intoxication and exposure of
    sexual organs. He was released on bond and is on an unpaid
    leave of absence from his job pending an internal
    investigation.

    February 28, 2005 -- A man and woman in adjoining cells at a Turkish prison drilled a 3.6-inch hole through the wall, enabling them to have sexual relations that produced a child. But while Seylan Corduk, 40, and Kadriye Fikret Oget, 27 — both serving time for planting a bomb in an Istanbul market — will be parents, they'll also be jailbirds a bit longer, after being given more time for damaging public property.

    March 1, 2005 -- A gang of thieves called the "bathroom bandits" is loose. Cops say they enter public rest rooms, peer under stalls to see whose pants are down, then quickly reach under and steal their wallet. The victims sometimes see what's going on, but stumble and fall over their pants as they try to give chase. Officers hope to flush out some suspects.

    I Don't Care What It Cures, I'm Not Taking It...
    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Alongside life-size posters of Hindu
    nationalist leaders, Indian political activists can now buy
    lotions, potions and pills to cure anything from cancer to
    hysteria to piles -- all made from cow urine or dung.
    A new goratna (cow products) stall at the Bharatiya Janata
    Party's (BJP) souvenir shop is rapidly outselling dry political
    tracts, badges, flags and saffron-and-green plastic wall clocks
    with the face of former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee.
    "You won't believe how quickly some of the products sold
    out," says Manoj Kumar, who runs the souvenir shop along with
    his brother, Sanjeev, at the BJP headquarters in a plush
    central New Delhi neighborhood. "The constipation medicine is a
    hot seller."
    But the biggest seller is a "multi-utility pill" that
    claims to cure anything from diabetes to piles to "ladies'
    diseases."
    "It's a miraculous cure" the container declares. A month's
    supply costs a little over $1.

    BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - Forty-six young men preparing to take a
    military school entrance exam were caught trying to cheat using
    mobile phones taped to their bodies and hidden in their shoes and
    underwear, an army official said Monday.
    The men, aged 18-24, were among nearly 30,000 who showed up
    Sunday morning at Ramkhamhaeng University in Bangkok to take the
    test to vie for 2,000 spots in the one-year military program.
    Officials searched the students and discovered the phones after
    some shied away from guards with handheld metal detectors as they
    entered the testing rooms.
    "When they took off their shoes, we found the cell phones,"
    said Army Spokesman Col. Acra Tiprot. "We questioned them, and
    they admitted many of their friends were also inside, so we closed
    the rooms and checked their clothes and shoes."
    Army officials suspect the test-takers' parents had
    foreknowledge of the plan and paid for the phones.
    "The parents wanted their children to pass the test, so they
    believed the people behind this," he said.
    The person tipping off the cheaters is "likely a kid who has a
    high IQ or is a good student, went in to take the test, remembered
    the test information and sent the answers by code," Acra said.
    The suspected cheaters met Saturday to learn how to read the
    codes they would receive by mobile phone, he said.

    March 3, 2005 -- An ex-stripper famously cleared of battering a nightclub patron with her "really big, crazy big" breasts has had them removed and put one up for auction.

    damn, 40/35 beat me to it

    Breast for sale: $11,000 and rising
    A stripper puts one of her most obvious assets up for bid on eBay. Guess what: it's in demand.

    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Giving new meaning to the term "big news," a famous stripper is selling an oversized breast on eBay.

    In an ongoing auction, the bidding price has risen from an initial $37 to more than $11,000. The auction is scheduled to conclude on March 5.

    The breast -- or, to be technical about it, a big glob of silicone -- belongs to dancer Tawny Peaks and has a storied history.

    Measuring a full 69HH, Peaks once had just about the biggest breasts around. But when the orbs became the subject of a 1998 lawsuit, they grew even larger than life.

    Peaks was a dancer at the Diamond Dolls nightclub in Clearwater, Florida. While at a bachelor party there, a patron claimed he was given a whiplash injury by Peaks, who had been swinging her breasts across his face at the time.

    He said they were "like two cement blocks," according to Reuters.

    The suit attracted national attention, and was finally settled by former New York mayor Ed Koch, ruling in a binding arbitration decision on "The People's Court" TV show.

    After a female bailiff examined Peaks, Koch ruled that the breasts were, in fact, just breasts -- too soft to be capable of inflicting harm. No damages were awarded.

    The notoriety from the suit briefly made Peaks famous, culminating with a cover spread in Playboy magazine. A few years ago, she retired to become a homemaker, and had the implants removed.

    Now the mother of three, Peaks says she decided to sell the implant after coming across it in a box of keepsakes and mementos from her show business days.

    She didn't need it anymore. Besides, it takes up quite a bit of space.
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    March 4, 2005 -- A man who recently had undergone radiation treatment for a medical condition walked past a fire engine and set off its nuclear-alert detector.
    The alarm prompted police to close down a road in Escondido, Calif., while they searched for a nuclear weapon — before realizing radiation in the man's body was to blame.

    March 5, 2005 -- It was a pretty tongue-in-cheek alibi. Brenna Guy of Indianapolis claimed the Breathalyzer test that led to her DWI arrest was invalid because she has a tongue stud — and under state law no foreign substance can be placed in a suspect's mouth in the 20 minutes before the test. The Indiana Supreme Court didn't swallow her argument — it noted the stud was in her mouth for more than 20 minutes before the test.
