Jennifer Aniston collapses on Break Up set

Actress Jennifer Aniston has collapsed on the set of her new movie The Break Up after complaining of nausea and severe headaches.

The former Friends star was officially diagnosed with heatstroke, after she fainted during filming in Chicago, Illinois.

But sources on set insist the star passed out because she was overcome with emotion, after it was revealed her former husband Brad Pitt had fuelled rumours he's dating Angelina Jolie, by accompanying her to Ethiopia, where she adopted an orphaned baby girl.


Thong Thief Nailed Again

The notorious Wisconsin thong thief is at it again, according to cops. Anthony Scholfield, 24, was arrested Wednesday and charged with once again breaking into a home and pilfering panties. As he did when first arrested in 2003, Scholfield allegedly targeted a residence near the University of Wisconsin campus in Menomonie. He apparently picked his female victim after delivering a pizza to her home on July 1, according to the below criminal complaint.


Drunk Dancer

Things not to do when you're drunk. Climb onto a bar in a dress too short and fall off of the damn thing.


Why You Can't Tickle Yourself

The human brain anticipates unimportant sensations, such as your own touch, so it can focus on important input like, say, a tarantula crawling up your neck.

The results might explain why it's hard to tickle yourself, scientists said today.

In the study, 30 people used a finger on their right hand to touch a finger on their left hand by tapping a device place directly over the left finger and could instantly relay the tap. The computer-controlled device could introduce delays of varying length before the left finger was tapped. Researchers used another button to introduce externally generated taps.......


Public flogging causes outrage

Two weeks ago Tebogo Malete was publicly flogged at a traditional court in Old Naledi, a village southeast of the Botswana's capital, Gaborone; a photograph of his punishment was published in the weekly newspaper, The Midweek Sun.

Malete, 27, a petty thief, had been sentenced to five lashes for housebreaking at the customary court presided over by the village headman. The humiliating newspaper photo showed him with his pants down and a police officer using a lash on his bare buttocks, sparking outrage in human rights circles.

In reaction, the government has issued a ban on the public flogging of convicted petty criminals by customary courts, but has refused to outlaw such punishment, attracting wide condemnation from human rights groups.


Flying Carpet

So, you like the fact that your inkjet can print iron-on transfers for t-shirts? Iranian artist Seyed Alavi has you topped in a big way. Alavi decided to create a 150-foot long carpet for a pedestiran walkway in the Sacramento Airport that would be imprinted with aerial imagery of the region — a modern take on the “flying carpet.”


Cursed cows

An Air France jet crashed into a stray cow as it landed in the southern Nigerian oil city of Port Harcourt on Wednesday, an airport official said, adding no-one was injured in the incident.

"The plane hit the cow on the runway. No-one was hurt, but the runway has been blocked," said the official, who asked not to be named.

The incident is only the latest in a series of freak accidents in Nigeria involving stray cows. Last month police in Lagos arrested a cow after it attacked and killed a bus driver who stopped to urinate by the side of the road.


Police Called To O.J. Simpson's Home

O.J. Simpson's private life has once again involved the police.

Simpson was at his suburban Miami home with girlfriend Christie Prody on the Fourth of July. He asked his neighbor Steve Dockendorf to come over and jump-start Prody's car.

Stories vary on what happened next, but Dockendorf called police and reported a fight. Police responded, but said no one was arrested and no charges will be filed.

Dockendorf said he called because Prody was beating him and Simpson.


Sheep in Mass Ewe-icide

A SHEEP leapt to its death from a cliff — and was followed by nearly 1,500 more in a bizarre “mass suicide”.

Stunned shepherds looked on helplessly as around 450 animals died after the 15 metre drop.

Those which jumped later were saved as they were cushioned by the rising pile of sheep at the bottom of the ravine.

Shepherds had left the flock to graze while they ate breakfast. Now they are set to lose around £60,000 from the deaths in the town of Gevas in eastern Turkey.

Nevzat Gayhan, a member of one of 26 families whose sheep were roaming free, said: “There’s nothing we can do. They are all wasted.”

Abdullah Hazar, another villager, said: “Every family had about 20 sheep. Now only a few have sheep left. It’s going to be hard for us.”

Suing NASA For $300 Million

Marina Bai has sued the U.S. space agency, claiming the Deep Impact probe that punched a crater into the comet Tempel 1 late Sunday "ruins the natural balance of forces in the universe," the newspaper Izvestia reported Tuesday. A Moscow court has postponed hearings on the case until late July, the paper said.

Scientists say the crash did not significantly alter the comet's orbit around the sun and said the experiment does not pose any danger to Earth.

The probe's comet crash sent up a cloud of debris that scientists hope to examine to learn how the solar system was formed.

Bai is seeking damages totaling $300 million — the approximate equivalent of the mission's cost — for her "moral sufferings," Izvestia said, citing her lawyer Alexander Molokhov. She earlier told the paper that the experiment would "deform her horoscope."

NASA representatives in Russia and at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., could not be reached for comment on the case.


Steve Jobs Calls Family of iPod Victim

Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs personally called the family of a 15-year-old New Yorker to offer his condolences after the teenager was killed last week during a fight over an iPod, according to a report published Wednesday.
The New York Times reported that Jobs and the victim's father, Errol Rose, spoke for a few minutes earlier this week after Jobs' assistant called the paper asking for Rose's telephone number.


The Prisoners Handbook

A prison psychology specialist (whatever that means) named Suzanne Baranik, suggested that I write a little "handbook" or guide for prisoners who are new to jail. After some thought, I got together with a few other "old-heads" (old prisoners). Between us we've got over 100 years in Pennsylvania hellholes. We know our shit!

We came up with this little list of suggestions for the tens of thousands of young men who are being railroaded into prison, Pennsylvania's fastest growing business.

If you have a husband, son or friend who's been thrown into prison in the past year or so, I suggest that you printout this handbook and send it to him.


Glass Bridge over the Grand Canyon

It is one of the great natural wonders of the world -- and it will soon to be joined by an engineering marvel.

A fantastic glass bridge arcing 60-feet out over the grand canyon -- giving visitors an unobstructed view 4000-feet straight down.

Sheri Yellowhawk, tribal executive says "That's gonna be a scary view. It's gonna be exciting. It's gonna be a once in a lifetime view. It may be scarey indeed having nothing more than sheets of glass separating you from eternity.

But the bridge has been engineered to withstand 100-mile per hour winds, magnitude 8 earthquakes -- and hold the weight of 71-jumbo jetliners.


Lil' Kim sentenced to one year in prison

Rapper Lil' Kim was sentenced on Wednesday to 12 months and a day in prison after admitting she was wrong to lie to a grand jury investigating two of her friends involved in a 2001 shooting outside a radio station.

She was also fined $50,000. The sentence was lenient compared to the 33 months that prosecutors sought in the high-profile case, which shed light on some of the complex rivalries in the hip-hop world.

Lil' Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, was convicted in March of conspiracy and perjury for lying to a grand jury. The three perjury counts and the conspiracy charge carried maximum sentences of five years each.


Fetching terrier killed when firecracker explodes in mouth

The hyperactive little Jack Russell terrier named Kaylee would chase anything thrown her way.

And to the horror of several adults and children at the Kolinoski family July 4 picnic, she did exactly that with a powerful firecracker thrown into her yard.

No charges, however, were expected to be filed in the death of the dog after the firecracker exploded in her mouth, authorities said Tuesday.


Sweden legalizes looking up ladies' skirts

Adding to its reputation as the most sexually liberal nation in the world, Sweden has just legalized looking up ladies' skirts!

In a nearly unanimous vote in the Swedish Parliament, the motion was carried 332 to 17. To celebrate the new law, the Parliament's second floor was replaced with a see-through glass floor, and women were invited to stand on the floor, wearing their loosest, widest skirts, with or without underwear. Men were invited to bring their cameras, stand on the floor below and look up.


Japanese Mountain

In the land of the rising sun they had a mountain. And the next minute the mountain was gone.

Things to do before the age of 10

Teen girl sleepwalks to top of crane

A British teenage sleepwalker was rescued after being found fast asleep on the arm of a 40m crane in south-east London, police said.

Police were called to Underhill Road, Dulwich, in the early hours of Saturday, June 25, after a passer-by spotted the 15-year-old girl curled up on top of a concrete counterweight high above the ground.

The girl, who has not been named, had apparently managed to climb up the crane and walk across a narrow metal beam while fast asleep.

It is believed the girl walked unnoticed out of her home near a building site.


Office Exercises

There are many ways to get fit and lose weight but, as with all things, it is simply a lot harder for some people to achieve than others. The group most prejudiced by society and just bad luck are office workers - the people who spend most of the day sat at their desk - who also happen to have cable television and broadband internet and DVDs. Madame Physique, the mysterious and ethereal patron ghost of weight-loss, has rolled her magical dice made from tightened abdominal muscles and rippling pectorals and they've come to rest on Snake Eyes for those who find the evening lure of the television and the internet holds sway after a long day of sitting down coding, typing, or secretly playing Bejeweled. You'd like to exercise, honest you would, but there's just no time.

But now there is! Yes, you can exercise at work, at your desk, in the office, and get paid to do so! Now that's the sort of exercise that appeals!

The Gift of Magnetic Vision

It’s hard to deny that Steve Haworth has been one of the most influential and innovative voices in body art over the past decade. In the field of implants as sculptural art he has singularly defined the art form, and with the assistance of Jesse Jarrell (iam:Mr. Bones) has continued to escalate it into increasingly refined forms. I heard a rumor recently that they’d been experimenting with magnetic implants, and I thought to myself, “cool party trick”, and checked out the pictures on Steve’s page.

He grabbed girl's arm -- now he's a sex offender

Fitzroy Barnaby said he had to swerve to avoid hitting the 14-year-old Des Plaines girl who walked in front of his car.

She said he yelled, "Come here, little girl," before getting out of his car and grabbing her by the arm. He said he simply lectured her. She said she broke free and ran, fearful of what he'd do next.

In a Thursday ruling, the Appellate Court of Illinois said the 28-year-old Evanston man must register as a sex offender.


Protection from horny customs officers

Women with silicone breast prostheses are advised to carry a doctor's letter with them if they want to escape inspection by American customs and security officials.

The Netcare travel clinics have issued a warning to women who have had a mastectomy and who use external silicone prostheses as they are targeted as a potential terrorist threat by American security officers.



They seem to be everywhere lately. From every major city to every small village: roundabouts. But did you know there's only one way to take a roundabout? That is the General Lee Way.

Voices of Piglet, Tigger Die in Same Week

Paul Winchell and John Fiedler, two of the voices from the beloved children's cartoon 'Winnie the Pooh' have died within almost 24 hours of each other.

Paul Winchell, the english voice of Gargamel in the animated children's show The Smurfs and Tigger in Disney's Winnie the Pooh died on 23 June at age 82. Winchell also voiced several other characters including Boomer in Disney's The Fox and the Hound and several characters for Hanna-Barbera productions.

American actor John Fiedler passed away at the age of 80 on June 25th. Though he worked extensively on stage, film, television, and radio for over forty years, he is perhaps most remembered for two roles: the mild, fearful voice of Piglet in Disney's many Winnie the Pooh productions, and the role of Mr. Peterson, nervous patient on The Bob Newhart Show.


Marry your pet

So you've found your partner for life, only thing is - he's an animal. Not just that he leaves hair in the bath and has abominable table manners, but that really he's an animal, i.e. with feathers, scales or whatnot.

But forget his facial hair. So what if he has an overabundance of legs, or must hibernate each winter? All that matters is that you adore him.

So go on, if you really love him and you're in this for life, isn't it time you married your pet?
