"Sikh police officers in Britain are reportedly asking for bullet-proof turbans, which would allow them to serve as firearms officers without having to remove their headwear. Sikh officers are exempt from wearing crash helmets because of their religion's requirement to wear a turban, but this also means they can't wear the protective headgear of firearms officers. Inspector Gian Singh Chahal, vice-chairman of the newly formed British Police Sikh Association, told the Guardian that there has already been some research done into producing a ballistic material for turbans."

Scientists studying this tiny creature couldn't help but smile when they noticed markings which looked just like a happy face.

But life is no laughing matter for the harmless spider, whose scientific name is Theridion grallator, because it faces the threat of extinction.

Researchers believe it developed the unique patterns on its abdomen as a way of protecting itself from predators.

Dr Geoff Oxford, a spider expert from the University of York, said: "I must admit when I turned over the first leaf and saw one it certainly brought a smile to my face.

"There are various theories as to why the spider has developed the markings it has, one of these that it may be to confuse predators.

"When a bird or other predator first sees a prey item it has not seen before there is a moment before it decides whether to eat it or not.

"It may be that this spider has developed these variations to take advantage of this, in the moment the predator is deciding if it is food it may have the chance to escape.

"I don't think the smiling face is enough to put off a bird though, but it would be nice to think so.

"Not all happy-face spiders have such striking markings, and some are nearly all orange or all blue."

The spider is found only on the islands of Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean but is under threat from non-native animals.

Secretary accidentally bites off boss? penis during oral sex in car

Posted on May 05th, 2009 in Asia

Kuala Lumpur, May 5 (ANI): A secretary reportedly bit off her boss? penis accidentally while performing oral sex in a car.

According to Sin Chew Daily and China Press, the 30-year-old woman was performing the sex act when the car, she and her boss were in, was hit by a reversing van.

The impact of the reversing van caused the woman to bite off her lover?s organ.

The incident took place in a Singapore park, and to make matters worse, the woman?s husband had sent a private investigator to spy on her after suspecting that she was being unfaithful.

The investigator said that he had followed the woman and her boss to the park.

?On reaching the park, they did not alight from the car. Not long after, the car started to shake violently,? the Star Online quoted the investigator as saying.

?After the car was hit by the van, there was a loud scream from the woman whose mouth was covered with blood,? he said.

The woman later followed her lover to the hospital.

The investigator, who called an ambulance to send the man to hospital, said that it was the first time that he had encountered such an incident. (ANI)

Pup's surgery after magnet feast

_45754310_greedyboyjack.jpg

Vets found about 30 pieces of plastic inside Jack during surgery

A puppy had to have emergency surgery after eating an entire alphabet of fridge magnets.

Six-month old Jack had just returned home from a castration operation on Thursday when he swallowed the magnets.

The golden labrador was taken to the PDSA's charity hospital in Plymouth, Devon, by his owner the next morning, where he was immediately operated on.

Owner Emma Keers says she will not buy any more magnets - and has banished Jack to sleep away from the fridge.

She said: "Jack was sleepy after the (castration) anaesthetic so I put him in the kitchen to recover overnight.

"The next morning I noticed the whole alphabet was missing from the fridge, though Jack wasn't showing any signs of being ill.

"He can be quite greedy though."

Jack had to have emergency surgery one day after his castration operation

Vet Robert Newcombe said about 30 pieces of chewed plastic were found in Jack.

"We had to operate straight away with both a gastrotomy, where we opened up his tummy, and an enterotomy, to remove more pieces of fridge magnets that had made their way to his intestine.

"The letters were well chewed and not easy to identify."

My dog opens the fridge, takes what he wants, and then closes it!

Even after we put these suction locks on it, he just broke the locks and continued eating...

We then secured rope around the fridge and attached it to separate windows...HE MOVED THE ENTIRE FRIDGE AWAY FROM THE ROPES...and continued eating.

Now the fridge is in a locked storage closet. He hasn't learned how to use the key yet.

'Move to India or lose your job'

From correspondents in Toulouse | May 10, 2009

Article from: Agence France-Presse

A FRENCH textile firm has caused outrage by telling nine of its workers that they have the choice between the sack and redeploying to an Indian factory and taking a gigantic pay-cut.

Carreman told its workers at a plant in the southwestern town of Castres that it would offer them pay of 69 euros ($122.37) a month if they moved to Bangalore, union officials said at the weekend.

The minimum legal monthly salary in France is 1,321 euros ($2,342.82).

Francois Morel, the boss of the factory, told a local paper that before being allowed to lay off the workers he was obliged to offer them work elsewhere in the group under legal requirements which he described as "stupid.''

CGT union official Edmond Andreu told AFP that the offer had provoked ``anger mixed with stupefaction'' among workers at the factory, who say it is obvious no-one will take up the proposition.

Workers at the Bangalore factory are paid the equivalent of 69 euros a month for working a six-day week, and get an annual bonus of a month's pay as well as medical insurance.

The nine Castres workers were also offered free plane tickets and a 1,000-euro bonus for moving.

Though I think I will stick to this one, she is a fine Thai breed and so adorable :wink:

"Naked Norwegians stun Phuket

PATONG, PHUKET: Kathu Police arrested two young Norwegian men last Tuesday night for running naked up Soi Bangla, the center of Phuket?s adult nightlife entertainment scene.

The pair were identified in a local Thai-language news report as Kulien Petter and Frederil Rarlses, both 19 years of age.

The lads were apprehended by police officers at about 9:30pm as they were running down the street, both stark naked and holding their underwear in hand.

Their performance caused much kerfuffle among scores Soi Bangla?s ladyboys and bargirls, many of whom screeched with excitement as they passed by.

The teens? fun run came to an abrupt halt when they were confronted by a team of law enforcement officials under the command of Deputy Inspector for Crime Suppression [yes] Seksan Kaowsawang.

Lt Col Seksan?s assistants, Sen Sgt Maj Aphirat Yanarat and Sen Sgt Maj Nikhom Saensuk, quickly caught the malefactors.

The pair, who were reportedly somewhat plastered, were brought back to Kathu Police Station for questioning.

The teens were charged with public indecency and then released after paying fines of 500 baht (about US$14.28) each. "

apart from that, I have no problems beliving Norwegians might do such a stunt :D

i've no doubt lots of pissed up 19 year old lads on holiday in thailand would be more than capable of such a stunt !! :D:D:D:D:D
