Shock: Britney not a virgin
Knight Ridder | Submitted by: Voodoo
"Star asked Timberlake if he had ever shared a certain bedroom intimacy with ex-girlfriend Spears. After much hemming and hawing, Timberlake broke down. 'I did it... I'm dirty. I'm in so much damn trouble, man. I'm gonna get calls from my mother!' No word yet on Britney's reaction." We at Daily Rotten are outraged that this could happen.

Hundreds of bras stolen from tourist attraction
Stuff NZ | Submitted by: wingnut
"Brazen brassiere bandits have uplifted one of the Cardrona Valley's tourism icons. More than 200 bras, right down to the last D cup, have been snipped off the bra fence, leaving just posts, wire and rabbit netting. Earlier this year, the fence had been blessed by a visiting American minister."

Uranium smuggled via Turkey
Ha'aretz Daily | Submitted by: anonymous
US news sources were showing that police in Turkey found enough "weapons grade" uranium in the hands of smugglers to build an atomic bomb. But now it turns out that sources really meant a few hundred grams and not 15 kilograms (funny that mistake), so it isn't enough to build a Bomb. It's still somewhat scary.

Sex toys on NHS!
Observer | Submitted by: Gareth Winchester
Why can't other public health systems be this good? "Women suffering sexual problems ranging from a general lack of desire to severe genital deformity are being prescribed vibrators on the National Health Service to help them rediscover their sex drive... 'Almost half of all women suffer from a sexual dysfunction, and sex shops and their accoutrements could be a vital part of their therapy,' said Dr David Goldmeier."

The end of blonde jokes
BBC | Submitted by: pete the anarchist
This is a bullshit story apparently on a slow news day. If you followed this logic, hemophilia wouldn't exist: a highly undesirable recessive trait (unlike a hot blonde) which has been around for time immemorial. "A study by experts in Germany suggests people with blonde hair are an endangered species and will become extinct by 2202... Jonathan Rees, professor of dermatology at the University of Edinburgh said it was unlikely blondes would die out completely."

Only traitors oppose spy cams
New York Times | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"The Sept. 11 attacks might also have created a sense that it is unpatriotic to oppose surveillance. In Quincy, Calif., a tiny mountain town in rural Plumas County, a three-term county supervisor is facing a recall by his constituents because of his stance on surveillance cameras. The supervisor, Robert A. Meacher, unplugged some surveillance equipment set up by the sheriff's department at a music festival last July. It was apparently intended to monitor drug sales... "The very fact that you raise a question makes you suspect, makes you anti-American," Mr. Meacher said. "It's, `Whose side are you on?' It shouldn't be like that."

Shitkicking fun in the Everglades
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Cars can enter from the north on Everglades Boulevard. Or they can take the main road through the Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, if they ignore the warning on the preserveís map: 'Travel not recommended beyond this point'... Car thieves slip in at night to get rid of stripped vehicles. Hunters illegally use dogs to go after deer and hogs. The night crackles with rifle fire. 'The vandalism is rampant,' said Sonja Durrwachter, the forestís manager. 'They steal vehicles. They take them out there and burn them. They run over them with monster buggies.'"

Tanzania not protecting evil elderly
IPP Media | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"As a result of these weaknesses, rape, defilement, genital mutilation, wife battery, killing of elderly people suspected of being sorcerers, and other kinds of violent acts in Tanzanian society are continuing unabated... Also in the list was the Witchcraft Ordinance. This came into effect in 1929 during the colonial era. In spite of its good intentions, the legislation has not helped anyone. People, especially old women with red eyes in Shinyanga, Mwanza, Tabora and other parts of the country, are still being killed."

Peace via absolutly DYNAMITE bikinis...
Wire Services | Submitted by: Scooter the Wonderduck
The sign reads "No War." The dynamite suggests terror bombings instead. But for some reason they give everyone a boner.

Forget something?
Canadian Press | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Another housekeeper at the downtown hotel found a catheter. 'It was the whole setup, with one of the bags full... We managed to contact the guest. Otherwise I don't know what we'd do with bodily fluids.' The Fairmont Vancouver Airport recently had a guest who left 'a glass eye on the night table...It really freaked out the room attendant. We phoned the guest and he came back for his eye.'"

Lousy Irony
Boston Globe | Submitted by: f00f
Jason Meeks, who as a 10-year-old wrote Governor William F. Weld pleading for an end to violence in his Roxbury neighborhood, was charged with murder yesterday... 'I want you to stop the violence. Make the people that are selling drugs go to school and put the bad people in jail.'"
