I wouldn't want that guy to be on my jury

Call it a rude awakening. A bored juror was cited for contempt and fined $1,000 by a judge for yawning loudly while awaiting questioning in an attempted murder trial.

The fine later was reduced to $100.

The man, identified only as Juror No. 2386 in an April 1 court transcript, yawned after he had been sitting in a downtown courtroom for two days while awaiting questioning as part of jury selection.


Indonesian women find George Bush sexiest man

Indonesian women are the most turned on by US President George W. Bush, according to the results of an international survey.

A recent online poll conducted by US-based Esquire magazine asked 11,000 women (average age 22) in 15 countries to rate Bush's sex appeal on a scale of 1 to 10.

Indonesian women gave him the highest average rating of 2.2, while American women gave him a score of 2.1

Elsewhere, women in Australia, Germany and the Netherlands gave Bush an average score of 1.4 for sex appeal, according to the magazine's ‘Global Survey of the Female Species’.


Rabbis rule that viagra is kosher

A leading Israeli rabbi has ruled that the anti-impotency pill Viagra can be taken by Jews on Passover, reversing a previous ban.
Viagra had been deemed not kosher since 1998 under strict dietary laws over the week-long Jewish spring holiday.

Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu said the pill can be swallowed if it is encased in a special soluble kosher capsule first.

This is why you shouldn't douse yourself in rubbing alcohol and light yourself on fire. Especially if the people that are supposed to save you are idiots.


640 Years in Prison???

A former Argentine naval officer who admitted to participating in ``death flights,'' in which naked detainees were thrown from planes during his country's ``dirty war,'' was convicted Tuesday by a Spanish court of committing atrocities and sentenced to 640 years in prison.

The trial of Adolfo Scilingo, 58, was Spain's first of a suspect accused of committing human rights abuses in another country. Spanish law says crimes against humanity can be tried in this country even if they are alleged to have been committed elsewhere.

Tiger v Crocodile video

Sometimes you get to see a fight between two species who are not likely to meet every day. And because they don't see each other very often, you probably do not know the outcome of the fight up front. Here is a tiger versus a crocodile.


Rudeness leads to attempted murder

Police are looking for a gunman who didn't appreciate a sarcastic customer at a Westport liquor store last week.

Surveillance video showed a confrontation that took place Thursday. A man in a striped shirt was leaving the store when another man held the door open for him.

When the man in the striped shirt neglected to say "thank you," the other man sarcastically said, "You're welcome."

The man in the striped shirt left the store, waited for the other man to exit, then shot him in the leg in the parking lot.


Practice makes perfect

Michael Jackson's FIST of Vaseline ?

For the sleazy grand finale of the state's case against Michael Jackson, prosecutor Tom Sneddon hopes to present a shocking story of Vaseline and alleged sex abuse, the Drudge Report has learned.

In a bombshell motion filed in closed court, Sneddon has obtained testimony from a former Neverland security guard -- a guard who claims he fetched Vaseline for an aroused King Of Pop!


Defendant who mooned the jury deemed competent

A defendant who dropped his pants to "moon" a jury has been ruled mentally competent for retrial on charges he beat his girlfriend.

Cornell Jackson, 31, tried to persuade Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet that he was crazy and not faking mental illness at a hearing Tuesday but to no avail.

"I ain't in my right mind," Jackson insisted. He also told the judge: "I am going to the moon. The spirits are gonna take me to the moon."


Horror Funeral

Mourners stared in horror as the grave they were standing round collapsed — smashing open the coffin and exposing the corpse.

Several relatives and friends of Carlton Ebanks almost slipped into the hole as the clay walls crumbled, and had to be quickly hauled clear.

His shocked widow Helena then watched as a cemetery worker jumped in and tried to hurriedly repair the splintered casket and cover up Carlton’s body.


Refund for a lapdance leads to MURDER

The manager of a strip club recovered in a hospital Wednesday morning after police said a customer, who was upset about a lap dance, shot him, police told Local 2.

Investigators said the man was kicked out of the Passion Cabaret on North Shepherd at Veteran's Memorial in northwest Houston but came back at about 1:30 a.m. demanding money for a lap dance he said he did not receive.

Police said that is when the customer opened fire.


Innocent man executed in Texas ?

With Texas' criminal justice system the subject of intense scrutiny for a crime lab scandal and a series of wrongful convictions, a state Senate committee heard testimony Tuesday about the possibility that Texas had experienced the ultimate criminal justice nightmare: the execution of an innocent person.

Fourteen months after Cameron Todd Willingham was executed in the nation's busiest death chamber, a renowned arson expert and Willingham's lawyer told the Senate Criminal Justice Committee that they believed Willingham might have been innocent but found nobody willing to listen to their claim in the days before the execution in February 2004.

"This was a frustrating case, and it was frustrating because it appeared that we could not get anybody to listen," said attorney Walter Reaves, who represented Willingham.


Criminal Einstein

The two Norwegians thought they had the perfect escape vehicle for their heist - a rowboat. They overlooked one thing: Neither knew how to row a boat.

Police said Thursday the men had broken into an ambulance boat near the small western town of Askvoll, and likely were looking for drugs or cash.

The boat's burglar alarm alerted the ambulance crew members, who quickly arrived and saw the two men trying to flee in the small rowboat just before midnight Wednesday.

Their paddling attempts were hopeless, police said.


Suspicious Muslim Penguins?

Two traveling penguins from Seaworld in San Diego went through regular airport screening at Denver International Airport recently. Here, Pat and Penny are removed from their carry-on case so they can walk through the metal detector. (Pat is the good looking one)


Kiss your graduating class goodbye

Two seniors at this rural Florida Panhandle community's only public school have been suspended and others were punished after they violated their principal's ban on T-shirts that read "Kiss Our Class Good-bye" or "Holy Ship, we're graduating."

When dozens of Baker School students defied the edict by wearing the "Kiss" T-shirt earlier this month they were warned suspensions would follow if they persisted.

"There's an obvious suggestion that many people find offensive," Principal Tom Shipp said. "I guess I might be old-fashioned, but I believe values are important.


Part Lion, Part Tiger?? WTF?

He looks like something from a prehistoric age or a fantastic creation from Hollywood. But Hercules is very much living flesh and blood - as he proves every time he opens his gigantic mouth to roar.

Part lion, part tiger, he is not just a big cat but a huge one, standing 10ft tall on his back legs.


Urban legend: Cows with windows?

While playfully harassing my sister Kelly about heading off the Agriculture School at NC State this weekend, I told her that she had to find out whether the urban legend about there being cows with windows is true. Apparently, this rumor is widespread, as even my friend Charles had heard such rumors where he grew up in Kansas. Smelling an urban legend in this rumor, I did some Google research of my own to prove this theory.


Stop picking on the French people

It seems like everybody in the whole world is picking on the French. I think that is not fair. They have provided us with many great things. They make the best wine, produce very fine cheeses, gave us French kissing, French fries and even soixante-neuf! And they gave us great beaches. So stop picking on the French!


Desperate Chick wants Brad Pitt's Babies

'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria has cheekily asked Brad Pitt to have children with her - by wearing a T-Shirt with the request splashed across the front.
