Japanese get a kick outta porn
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"You can't use professional actors, because you're making films about men being kicked in their most vital organ. If you did use them, they'd soon be put out of work. So we advertised in S&M magazines and over the Internet to find guys to appear in tamakeri videos. We had over 200 applicants. There weren't any particular standards regarding who was hired. I suppose the only requirement was an ability to stand erect after being kicked in the balls."

Thousands of people attended the funeral of a monkey revered as a divine incarnation of Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god - in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Man opens beer bottles with his belly button
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel | Submitted by: Any Mouse
"Q. How does one discover the ability to open beer bottles with their belly button? A. I was at a party one night, and we were figuring out how many dimes we could fit in there to impress the girls. I got about a buck 40, so we decided to push the envelope and open a beer bottle."

Man thanks fat for saving him from impalement
Nottingham Evening Post | Submitted by: Robert Hardie
"Gasman Michael Summerhayes, 57, lost his footing as he stepped over a small chain link fence. He landed on a hooked metal spike which went five inches into his left side just under his ribcage... "I am glad I have got a little bit of weight on me as it gave me some protection."

Rue Britannia: Diana's death tops poll
Washington Times | Submitted by: Dodo Dick
"How Princess Diana's death gets rated the most significant event in British history in the past 100 years defeats me. But it shows how the impact of historical events is skewed toward more recent events where people's personal experiences come into play, and particularly if they are recorded as moving images."

Brains: Who needs 'em?
Pravda | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"When the body was dissected, it was discovered that the baby did not have a brain! A German doctor, Professor Hufland, was once present at a dissection of the cranium of a patient, who allegedly died of a brain hemorrhage. The patient was of sound mind until his death. However, the results of the dissection were astounding. The man had about 30 milliliters of water instead of his brain."

Zero tolerance for airborne debris
New Zealand Herald | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Manukau mayor Sir Barry Curtis fears debris falling from planes could kill people in his city, after two incidents in a week of pieces of aircraft dropping off shortly after takeoff... "Chances are, the next time a piece falls off, on the flight path over the Manukau city centre it could well kill somebody, or more than one person... We can't tolerate this sort of thing."

Building the Shangri-La brand
Washington Post | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Shopkeepers have been trading in Chinese character-signs for new ones that also include Tibetan script. Usage of the script is rusty here, which has resulted in some unintentional satire. A sign that should read "Beauty Center" instead spells out "Leprosy Center." The front of Fresh, Fresh Restaurant now bears a sign that says "Kill, Kill." "We're building the Shangri-La brand," said Liao Chunlei, vice director for the Shangri-La County Ministry of Tourism."

U.S. poisons young Vietnamese minds
SiliconValley.com | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"To underline their seriousness, authorities recently sent one man to jail after he translated an essay he found on the U.S. Embassy's site titled "What Is Democracy?" and posted it on a Vietnamese site... Half those who cruise the Web, [Sa] said, are visiting pornographic or "poisonous" sites. "A very small proportion of the sites are bad. But they are very harmful, especially to the younger generation. And they need to be eliminated."

N'enlevez pas ma pornographie!
Miami Herald | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"For nearly two decades, the Saturday night naughtiness of France has been no holds barred pornography, beamed to TV sets in millions of homes across the land. All the while, few people complained about le porno du Samedi soir, as the French cheerfully call it, until this summer. Then government appointed regulators touched off a cultural debate by urging channels to drop the porn, and at the same time lobbying the Legislature for the power to force compliance if TV executives don't go along."

China blocks Google
Wire Services | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
The Chinese government has been openly blocking some websites, and now they've blocked all of Google (but not Yahoo, which uses Google). "It's not like Sina or Sohu where all they need to do is make a phone call and they can remedy the situation [of an inappropriate link]. It doesn't even matter if they make a phone call, Google is not going to do anything as a result of it."

That's me in that picture
Press and Journal | Submitted by: Incubus
"A world record holder was let into the country despite having forgotten his passport when staff recognised him from his picture in the Guinness Book of World Records. "She said I needed a picture ID, and I thought of the Guinness Book of World Records front page. I showed it to them and they were really amazed. They checked inside to see that my name was there, they called another official over to check."

Four MTV whiggers have urban experience
New York Post | Submitted by: brojack
One suspects they're feeling somewhat less liberal today: "A gang of thugs sexually assaulted four suburban teenagers who came to Manhattan for last week's MTV awards, apparently after the men promised the girls they'd introduce them to rap stars including Eminem, police sources said yesterday."
