Where serial killers go for a quiet tipple
Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: Dark Pa
"It is a good bar that should not be judged bad simply because some customers misbehaved so spectacularly, patrons said this week. That is what they said in the mid-1970s after Ted Bundy drank here... They said it in the late 1970s after Kenneth Bianchi drank here... They said it over a year ago, after James Kinney, who also regularly drank here, was arrested for the murder of a woman found dead off Interstate 5... Now they are saying John Allen Muhammad, accused in the Washington DC-area sniper case, drank here."

St. Louis Today | Submitted by: lawboy
"Bobby comes out in a towel and boots, and I said, 'Erise, you know you can't do this,' He says, 'Kevin, how many times do I have to tell you that this is how we reach the young people?' "Time goes by, and Bobby is buck naked. It was like we were at a strip show except there was no money being passed. Guys would run up and touch him. Erise was cheering them on."

Liberty For All | Submitted by: LFA
"A plan by the National Institutes of Health to spend $24 million on a retirement facility for chimpanzees shows why America needs a separation of science and state, Libertarians say... In an effort to house 800 chimpanzees that have been 'retired' after being used in medical experiments, the National Institutes of Health has created Chimp Haven, an animal sanctuary in Louisiana. The total cost to taxpayers: $24 million over 10 years, or $30,000 per chimpanzee."

Arty-farty pornography
BBC | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Fiona Banner's exhibition is perhaps the most startling, and will no doubt win in the headline-hitting stakes because of its sexually explicit nature. Visitors to her exhibition are greeted by a huge white billboard, called Arsewoman in Wonderland, covered in fluorescent pink words which detail every move and squelch from a pornographic film."

Racial caricatures not racist!
AlterNet | Submitted by: anonymous
"I would like to apologize to anyone that feels the mask is racist. Our company is not racist in any way and we do not condone any type of hateful actions… In fact, the item is manufactured in Mexico, by a labor force mostly made up of Latinos. They did not have a problem with it when it was manufactured."

Judgement House offers previews of Heaven, Hell
Bonita Banner | Submitted by: load of meat
"It's a live-action drama where those watching "Judgement House" travel through nine different scenes. Some are so vivid and frightening small children are asked to skip that room and join up in the next. Each room takes the plot one step further. One step closer to heaven. One step closer to hell." Another church "haunted house" but the photo is great.

Breasts bare a bird's true character
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
It's unbelievable people are buying this guy. The pseudo-science is known as physiognomy and was discredited in the 19th century: "[Flat-chested women] are quick thinkers who usually focus on only one men can persuade women to change. "Usually, these women are noble and sincere types, so once they find their man, they'll normally do whatever he wants them to and that becomes their pleasure."

Junk hoarding related to mental illness
Seattle Post-Intelligencer | Submitted by: meatload
"Often reclusive, hoarders spend years compulsively cramming their homes so full that stoves and toilets become unusable. In the most tragic cases, hoarders' habits lead to their deaths. The hoarding task force was born after its members came together about 18 months ago to deal with the case of an elderly Green Lake couple whose accumulations had drawn so many rats that rodent bites were found in the ailing wife's oxygen tubes."

Randy RAF drunks defend the Falklands
Falkland-Malvinas News | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"The RAF officer’s dossier claims 'there is a perception throughout the base that Argentine forces are incapable of militarily and economically conducting a campaign to re-invade the Falklands. Were they to do so, the forces that would primarily resist them would be degraded by alcohol on any Thursday to Sunday night'... The RAF stresses that it is a 24-hour, 365 days a year operation, on constant alert and ready to react... While off-duty personnel may be getting drunk or having sex, this defensive shield is permanently in place."

Bloody Sunday protesters had it coming
Belfast Telegraph | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"General Sir Robert Ford, 78, Commander of Land Forces in Northern Ireland in January 1972, told the inquiry he accepted a switch to a policy of shooting rioters could lead to deaths but said it was 'ridiculous' to suggest the events of Bloody Sunday amounted to his plan being put into practice... Giving evidence yesterday, Sir Robert, who was responsible for day to day operations, denied his suggestion was a shoot to kill instruction. "Shoot and kill are obviously different words," he said."

Blind husband fruited his wife for sex
Trinidad Guardian | Submitted by: Rontrini
"One day he took a cassava and made it like a penis, tied a piece of string around his waist and pushed it into her vagina. He'd say 'stay quiet like an animal' when she felt pain in her vagina and belly,' said Panday. He said the abuse was also verbal and physical as Ralph beat her and on one occasion bounced her head on a concrete wall until she became unconscious. She reported those incidents to the police."
