This tiny trapdoor was hardly ever used
After two decades in hiding, an Iraqi man has finally emerged back into the real world - squinting at the unaccustomed light.
Twenty-one years ago, Saddam Hussein placed an execution order on Jawad Amir for supporting an outspoken Shia cleric.

Mr Amir escaped - not into a far-off town or neighbouring country, but into a space sandwiched between two walls in his parents' home.

You know you are addicted to coffee if ...

  • You grind your coffee beans in your mouth.
  • You sleep with your eyes open.
  • You have to watch videos in fast-forward.
  • The only time you're standing still is during an earthquake.
  • You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer.
  • You've worn out your third pair of tennis shoes this week.
  • Your eyes stay open when you sneeze.
  • You chew on other people's fingernails.
  • The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse.
  • You're so jittery that people use your hands to blend their margaritas.

    JONESBORO, Ark. - Spiders have infested a county jail in northeast Arkansas, biting at least 15 inmates and confounding the exterminator.

    The main offender appears to be the brown recluse spider, up to three-quarters of an inch long with long, skinny legs and a violin-shaped mark on its head.

    Inmate Tim Steele, 26, showed off his lower left leg [graphic photo] Friday, inflamed and red from a bite. A brown recluse's bite can cause a rash, swelling and flu-like symptoms and, in rare cases, can cause kidney failure, seizures and even coma, according to the National Institutes of Health.

    "We're doing the best we can to get rid of (the spiders)," Sheriff Jack McCann said.

    Read the rest of the story

    UUGGG....I hate spiders. I know several people who have been bitten by the brown recluse; my brother was bitten on one of his feet several years ago. He didn't have any major complications, but the mother of one of my co-workers was bitten a couple of years ago and lost a leg. The venom of this spider actually digests the flesh around the bite, and then it gets infected. The south is infested with these little buggers- which is why I have the pest control service come to my house regularly.

    Watching Horse Butts!

    This rainy Memorial Day weekend, they were on their way to visit grandma and grandpa. It wasn't a very long drive, and they felt as if they were practically there already. They'd be there in plenty of time for lunch, and it was sure to be grandma's fried chicken and mashed potatoes and green bean casserole and cornbread.

    They'd been following this horse trailer for at least twenty miles, and Squeaky had been thinking the funniest thoughts to himself and snickering like a 5 year-old will do sometimes. He couldn't take his eyes off of the horses' butts. He was sitting in the middle of the back seat (HIS back seat) and watching the horses' butts between his dad's right shoulder and his mom's left. Some of his thoughts were unhappy; like, how do those two horses feel, being cooped up in that trailer, side by side, going who knows where? Were they going to the glue factory he'd heard about on TV one day? But, like a 5 year-old can do, he pushed those thoughts aside and allowed the fun stuff to take over. Finally, he couldn't hold one particular thought in any longer.

    "Daddy! Daddy! What would happen if those horses pooped and it flew all over our windshield?" He held his hands in front of his mouth to stifle the giggles, since he wanted this to be taken as a serious scientific query.

    "Squeak"! Stop talking like that. You know that's not nice," his mom said, while hitting her husband's leg, out of Squeaky's eyesight, for giggling along with his little boy.

    "Why do the horses even have tails, daddy?" Squeaky asked quite seriously.

    "So if they poop, it won't fly all over our windshield, of course."

    This time, his wife couldn't help but giggle along with her boys.

    Shocking New Jacket !

    A new anti-assault device for women wards off potential assailants with an 80,000-volt electric shock.

    Dubbed "exo-electric armor," the No-Contact Jacket looks like an ordinary fashionable women's coat. But an inner layer of conductive fiber carries a low-amp charge that delivers a nasty but non-lethal shock to anyone who messes with its wearer.

    So...would it be bad to be wearing that charged in the rain? And what happens if you forget you're wearing this and hug your sweetheart, does he have a lawsuit in there somewhere?
