New breed of lunatics takes to the sky
Deseret News | Submitted by: Kerpal
A new trend, sure to produce dozens of future Darwin Awards recipients, is sweeping the country. It's called cluster ballooning, and it involves nothing more than attaching hundreds of regular helium baloons to oneself and floating into the sky. The FAA is pretty much turning a blind eye to all this, but it can only be a matter of time until Al Qaeda starts filling balloons with hydrogen instead, and doing suicide bombings Hindenburg style.

Although the inmate was white, Zepeda is later heard telling a police officer, "I thought he was black."

Microsoft gets off scott-free
Washington Post | Submitted by: sirelio
"Microsoft Corp. won a resounding victory in its antitrust case yesterday as a federal judge here rejected and at times belittled efforts by state prosecutors to impose stiffer sanctions on the company than it had agreed to in a settlement with the Justice Department. The agreement, which imposes a series of restrictions on Microsoft's business practices, was widely assailed as a sell-out and filled with loopholes by an array of legal scholars and Microsoft's corporate competitors."

White trash cockfighters threatened
Washington Post | Submitted by: meatload
"Gamecock "trainers" tie 3-inch curved spikes to bird's feet and hold opposing roosters face to face to intensify their natural hatred of a male rival. The roosters, often drugged, are then loosed in a dirt arena where they peck and stab in a contest to the death. Small fortunes are won and lost by bettors who cheer from the bleachers, eat BBQ and swill beer. One of three states to honor this vestige of 19th century pasttimes may ban it in a vote Tuesday."

Partying hard in Palestine
Haaretz Daily | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Since the beginning of this intifada, the work of the NGOs and the UN has expanded considerably as the Palestinian economy has tailspinned. Consequently, the foreign diplomats, the UN and the NGO employees must work harder to provide the population with the basic necessities, and, apparently, party hard to compensate for their own anxiety... "When you sit together, all you do is talk about the situation. But, when you get pissed [drunk] and are being silly, you don't," says M. "Some might think it's not normal to party in the middle of all this. But, that's bullshit."

The dead are tops of the pops
Guardian | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Prematurely dead artists make perfect pop stars. They don't become old and unattractive, nor do they lose the musical plot. They are easier to worship because they're not around to blot their copybook with embarrassing middle aged lapses of taste: they don't appear in cabaret or on game shows, they don't wrong-foot their fans by going techno or releasing albums of skiffle cover versions."
