Blogger fired, eh, jailed

There are plenty of stories about bloggers being fired for blogging, but this is the first time I hear about someone being jailed for 14 years for blogging:

An Iranian blogger accused of spying and counter-revolutionary activities has been jailed for 14 years. Newspaper editor Arash Sigarchi - whose blog criticised an Iranian crackdown on similar websites which has resulted in around 20 arrests - was himself cuffed in January on charges of "espionage, insulting the founder of Iran's Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenei, and current Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei", the BBC reports.

Citizens for Clean Air: No more chicken shit!

Chicken Manure Stench Holds Town Hostage:

FRENCHVILLE, Maine - Northern winds have been sending a stench of manure from across the Canadian border, the people in this St. John Valley town are tired of holding their noses. "It smells like acid or sulfur, and it's really strong. The last couple of weeks have been really bad," Frenchville Town Manager Philip Levesque said. "It's an international problem."


Percy Thibeault, a resident of the area most affected by the smells, said a committee called Citizens for Clean Air has been formed to deal with the odor.  ... "It's affected our quality of life," Thibeault said. "We can't have barbecues, can't open windows and doors because of the smell. It's a nuisance."


A novel way to get dead drunk

What do you do when you can't drink due to a medical problem with the throat? You get your wife to give you a sherry enema

The wine enema was a way he could become intoxicated without drinking alcohol, Turner said.

"I heard of this kind of thing in mortuary school in 1970, but this is the first time I've ever heard of someone actually doing it," Turner said.

Turner said police think she gave him at least two large bottles of sherry, which is stronger than wine, in the enema on May 21. "We're not talking about little bottles here," Turner said, "These were at least 1.5 liter bottles."

Never Mind The Bollocks - We Won!

Welsh rugby fan nutcase cuts off testicles after historic win over England:

Geoff Huish, 26, was so convinced England would win Saturday's match he told fellow drinkers at a social club, "If Wales win I'll cut my balls off", the paper said on Tuesday.

Friends at the club in Caerphilly, south Wales, thought he was joking.

But after the game Huish went home, severed his testicles with a knife, and walked 200 metres back to the bar with the testicles to show the shocked drinkers what he had done.

One avalanche and 60 pints of beer later

Richard Kral pissed his way out of a car trapped in an avalanche after drinking 60 pints of beer.

Richard was off on vacation after shopping  for beer when his car was caught in a avalanche. Trying to dig his way out he quickly realized that the snow would fill the the car before he would get out. Considering the problem over a cold beer he came up with the plan that saved his life: dig the snow in the car and piss on it to melt it. Keeping a steady flow was no problem with the car full of beer.

60 pints later the rescue people found him walking staggering around drunk and hurting but happy:

I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there.
