News you may have missed #3

Canada - Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Canada!!

In Guelph, Ontario, a strange man had committed at least three incidents of approaching women and asking to be kicked in the groin. Apprehended after the seventh such incidents, Jarrett Loft, 28, pleaded guilty in March 2008 to one count (of being VERY weird) and was sentenced to 60 days in jail. Loft offered no explanation for his behavior, other than that he was "curious." One victim, saying that she feared what Loft might do if she refused, repeatedly kicked him between the legs, after which he thanked her and rode off on his bicycle.

Dentistry - its a gas

A patient reporting for an appointment with dentist Norman Rubin in Smithtown, N.Y., in March told the New York Post that Rubin was in the otherwise-empty office, passed out, drooling, with a gas mask on his face. (Rubin later told the Post, in defense, that it was, after all, his lunch hour.)
well being a dentist much be a hard old job at the best of times!

Wild Parties (why do I not get an invite?)

Mayor Art Madrid of La Mesa, Calif., apologized in February for an incident the week before when police found him, along with a female city employee, passed out about 10:30 p.m. Madrid was lying on the sidewalk near an SUV; the woman was in the driver's seat with her legs sticking out the open door; and vomit littered the area. La mesa sounds like my kinda town, how to you get on the town council i wonder ?... [San Diego Union Tribune, 27 Feb 2008]

Meanwhile in Salzburg Austria people are looking at the colour of a bat's anus

Dirk Opalka (whose fox scored 96 of 100 possible points) won best in show at the World Taxidermy Championships in February in Salzburg, Austria, beating over 100 competitors in the art of stretching animal skin over fake bodies so the critters look better than they ever looked alive. The attention to detail was astonishing, according to a dispatch in Der Spiegel, on such features as a stag's nostrils, a hyena's lips, a hamster's whiskers, the neck length of a female peregrine falcon (precisely 5.5 cm), and the proper rosiness of a bat's anus.
