Three street-muggers in Sydney, Aus chased a visiting med student down an alley and took his iPod and phone. Unfortunately for them, the alley they chased him down was next to the local ninja martial arts school, and a student ninja was lurking in the shadows. He got his teacher, and five ninjas stole out into the night and kicked the muggers' asses.

very good journalism.

 

This newspaper correction is incredible : "We made no attempt to check the accuracy of the story before publication ..".

Stunning.

 

What would be even more surprising though would be if The Star admitted that it did check the accuracy of a story prior to publication.

more craziness from the Far East :

 

"In June, the North Korean soccer team dropped ignominiously out of the World Cup without a point after conceding 12 goals in three games. Since the players returned home, they have been publicly shamed, according to reports. The manager has been forced to become a construction worker, and there are fears for his safety."

This is an old one:

 

Admitting his 0-4 record is not impressive "on paper," trainers announced that Lucky, a German shepherd guide dog for the blind in Wuppertal, Germany, is available for his fifth owner.

Lucky led his first owner in front of a bus, killing him. Then he led the second off the end of a pier, drowning him.

He nudged his third owner off a railway platform in front of an express train, killing him. And he walked his fourth owner into heavy traffic, abandoning him to be hit and killed.

The new owner won't be told of Lucky's record because, the trainers say, the dog might sense nervousness "and do something silly."

Found this.

 

(16 April 1997) "The government must crack down on this disgusting craze of 'Pumping'," a spokesman for the Nakhon Ratchasima hospital told reporters. "If this perversion catches on, it will destroy the cream of Thailand's manhood." He was speaking after the remains of 13 year-old Charnchai Puanmuangpak had been rushed into the hospital's emergency room.

"Most 'Pumpers' use a standard bicycle pump," he explained, "inserting the nozzle far up their rectum, giving themselves a rush of air, creating a momentary high. This act is a sin against God." Charnchai took it further still. He started using a two-cylinder foot pump, but even that wasn't exciting enough for him, and he boasted to friends that he was going to try the compressed air hose at a nearby gasoline station. They dared him to do it so, under cover of darkness, he sneaked in.

 

Not realizing how powerful the machine was, he inserted the tube deep into his rectum, and placed a coin in the slot. As a result, he died virtually instantly, but passersby are still in shock. One woman thought she was watching a twilight fireworks display, and started clapping. "We still haven't located all of him.", say the police authorities. "When that quantity of air interacted with the gas in his system, he nearly exploded. It was like an atom bomb went off or something."

"Pumping is the devil's pastime, and we must all say no to Satan," Ratchasima concluded. "Inflate your tires by all means, but then hide your bicycle pump where it cannot tempt you."

:lol:

BRIT explorers claim they have spotted a legendary ape man believed to inhabit an island jungle — and snapped its footprints.

 

The four-strong team and their Indonesian guide were tracking through dense jungle in Sumatra when two of them caught a glimpse of the famous Orang Pendek — or short man.

 

The group brought back a hair sample and a piece of chewed palm from the island's Kerinci National Park they hope will provide DNA evidence of the beast.

 

They also snapped a strange footprint thought to belong to the creature.

 

Sightings of the hairy human-like monster have been made in the area since colonial times — and it is alleged to be immensely powerful.

 

The explorers hope the sample of rattan palm, which is thought to have been munched on by the Orang Pendek, will contain some of its cells. The palm and hair sample have been sent for testing.

 

Elusive

 

Witnesses have described the beast as being about 5ft tall and say that it walks on two legs.

 

It is thought to be extremely powerful — with reports of onlookers seeing it ripping apart logs.

 

After a spate of sightings around Lake Gunung Tuju, in the Kerinci national park, a team from the Devon based Centre for Fortean Zoology — which investigates unknown species of animals — embarked on a two-week mission to the region to see if they could obtain evidence of the creature.

 

The elusive Orang Pendek shares its habitat with the Sumatran Tiger, pythons, and Saltwater crocodiles.

 

Richard Freeman, the expedition zoologist and zoological director at the Centre for Fortean Zoology, said he believes the creature is an unidentified species of ape.

 

"We are not talking about a unicorn or a griffin, we are talking about an ape that's unknown to science," he said.

 

"It's name means 'short man' in Indonesian.

 

"It's supposed to be a powerfully built upright walking ape.

 

"It walks on two legs rather than four - like a man, about five foot tall with dark fur - immensely strong.

 

"It's been seen since colonial times.

 

"It's quite possible that in some museum there are skull and bones of the Orang Pendek that have been labelled orangutan."

 

The team, who have just returned from their two-week expedition, hailed it a success and are awaiting the results of the DNA tests.

That's amazing

 

But having two heads and five legs can be a burden, according to her owner Roman Gresak. He said: "The second head sometimes doesn't allow the tortoise to know where to go".

 

Bickering like a married couple.
