Machete attackers wore ninja masks

Police are looking for four young males following a machete attack on a 17-year-old Tuesday by a foursome wearing ninja masks.

The victim, who suffered a broken arm and six large gashes to the bone on his arms, legs and back, is recovering in hospital. He was robbed of his wallet in a wooded area near Lynda Lane Park near Smyth Road at about 6:30 p.m. Neighbours heard him crying for help and called police.

Officers found him lying in the park between two hydro towers. The teen went into shock and Det. Jeff Scharf said he could give few details.

He did tell police his attackers were in their 20s, and that their heads and faces were covered with the ninja-style masks.

Woman Attempts All-`Man-Juice' Diet

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (Wireless Flash) -- A woman in Santa Monica, California, is attempting to lose weight in a manner others may not be able to stomach -- an all-semen diet.

Starting December 1, a plump porn star named Kim Kelly hopes to lose between 10 and 20 pounds by spending 30 days on a diet consisting largely of semen -- or as she prefers, "man juice."

It may be hard for you to swallow but Kelly is shooting for at least six square meals a day -- with occasional pigouts.

I've been on this pseudo vactation from comics lately. Wrapping up a couple of projects, not really reading as much as I used to. Which means; I'm either getting much more snob-a-riffic or no one (outside a small handful) are putting out quality comic book products.

I tear through the Previews catalogue in vain hope that I can find something to spend my money on. And in a 400+ page phonebook of comics product, I came up with exactly 2 things.

- FABLES OGN (Which is actually for Andi)
- BAREFOOT SERPENT OGN

But instead of bitching, I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I'm writting twice as fast and three times as hard. Time to make the books I want to see.

WILLIAM 'REFRIGERATOR' PERRY TO PARTICIPATE IN JULY FOURTH HOT DOG EATING CONTEST

Former NFL star William 'The Refrigerator' Perry served notice to the sport of competitive eating on Saturday, winning a qualifying contest for the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest and earning a spot in the annual summer classic in Coney Island. BetWWTS.com, a leading offshore gaming company for over 10 years, will serve as The Fridge's official sponsor for his appearance in the Nathan's Famous event.

"This gives William Perry the chance to follow in the footsteps of other two-sport stars like Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders," said Richard Shea, spokesman for Nathan's Famous. "Competitive eating requires a unique combination of athleticism and discipline, and only time will tell if Perry's talent on the gridiron will carry over to Coney Island."

Murdered Monk Was 'Mafia' Millionaire?

BANGKOK (Reuters) - A Thai Buddhist monk shot dead this week had amassed a $5 million fortune in 12 bank accounts from years of extortion and was on a government blacklist of influential "mafia" figures, police said on Friday.

Investigators said the monk, Phra Kru Nanthapiwat, murdered execution-style by an unidentified assailant on Tuesday, had been earning as much as one million baht ($24,030) a week by embezzling temple funds and running illegal motorcycle taxi gangs.

Drug Turns Crime Victims Into Zombies

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - The last thing Andrea Fernandez recalls before being drugged is holding her newborn baby on a Bogota city bus.

Police found her three days later, muttering to herself and wandering topless along the median strip of a busy highway. Her face was badly beaten and her son was gone.

Fernandez is just one of hundreds of victims every month who, according to Colombian hospitals, are temporarily turned into zombies by a home-grown drug called scopolamine which has been embraced by thieves and rapists.

Boy Breeds Eggs in His Body, Produces Beetles?

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A 13-year-old Indian boy has begun producing winged beetles in his urine after hatching the eggs in his body, a senior medical official said Monday.

Doctor Chittaranjan Maity, Medical Education Director of West Bengal state where the boy is from, said doctors found the beetles while examining him for pain in the groin area.

"Doctors were really surprised to see the beetles," he told Reuters. "There are eggs of the beetle in a fistula in his body and he is getting medical treatment to try to kill the eggs," Maity said.

Stress over boy's death forces bookshop owner to quit

YOKOHAMA -- A Kawasaki bookshop operator, who attracted nationwide attention earlier this year after a teenage shoplifter was fatally struck by a high speed train while fleeing his shop, has been forced out of business due to stress.

The 44-year-old bookseller, whose name is being withheld, had already closed the shop once soon after the junior high school boy's death because he was flooded with abuse from members of the public who called him a "murderer."

Icy claim that water has memory

Claims do not come much more controversial than the idea that water might retain a memory of substances once dissolved in it. The notion is central to homeopathy, which treats patients with samples so dilute they are unlikely to contain a single molecule of the active compound, but it is generally ridiculed by scientists.

Holding such a heretical view famously cost one of France's top allergy researchers, Jacques Benveniste, his funding, labs and reputation after his findings were discredited in 1988.

Yet a paper is about to be published in the reputable journal Physica A claiming to show that even though they should be identical, the structure of hydrogen bonds in pure water is very different from that in homeopathic dilutions of salt solutions. Could it be time to take the "memory" of water seriously?

Tales of Superman Saddam
Bulletproof gem, magician mother among the myths
'He has fortune tellers tap into the spirit world'


BASRA—He has a special gem implanted in his arm that makes him bulletproof. He has connections in the spirit world. His mother is a magician.

As U.S. troops occupy vast stretches of downtown Baghdad, Iraqis weaned for three decades on stories of Saddam Hussein's invincibility admit they're still having trouble believing that Saddam won't somehow come out unscathed.

"I wouldn't believe he was dead even if I saw his body on television," says Aboud Muttar, 60, a shepherd. "I won't believe it unless I see it with my own eyes."

Thief uses bees to sting Kmart

Employees at the Sedalia Kmart were left to fight off a restroom full of bees as a thief made off with about $60 in stolen goods Monday.

The Sedalia Police Department received a phone call at 4:18 p.m. from a staff member at the Kmart store, at 1400 S. Limit Ave., who reported that a man had concealed several stolen items while in the men's bathroom.

It appears the man then released about 100 bees, apparently small honeybees, in the room and fled the store in the commotion that followed, according to police reports.

"I'm sure it was so we'll be more concerned about the bees than about anything else," said store Manager Lancy Ulrich.

A customer found the bees and reported them to a staff member, Mrs. Ulrich said. Staff then took insecticides off store shelves and killed the bees.

"We just set off a couple (bug) bombs in there and killed them," said Mrs. Ulrich.

160,000-year-old Fossilized Skulls From Ethiopia Are Oldest Modern Humans

Berkeley -- The fossilized skulls of two adults and one child discovered in the Afar region of eastern Ethiopia have been dated at 160,000 years, making them the oldest known fossils of modern humans, or Homo sapiens. The skulls, dug up near a village called Herto, fill a major gap in the human fossil record, an era at the dawn of modern humans when the facial features and brain cases we recognize today as human first appeared.

The fossils date precisely from the time when biologists using genes to chart human evolution predicted that a genetic "Eve" lived somewhere in Africa and gave rise to all modern humans.

Judge says nizzle-shizzling not an offence.

LONDON (Reuters) - A judge has ruled that the lyrics of a rap record urging the listener to "shizzle my nizzle" and referring to a "mish mish man" did not constitute an offence.

Presiding in the case of UK rap artist Andrew Alcee against the Heartless Crew, High Court Judge Lewison ruled that not only were the lyrics not necessarily offensive but that they may as well have been in a foreign language.
