Professor buys Lemonade Drink With Alcohol in it for 7 yr Old Son


Prof. Christopher Ratte attended a ball game with his son and bought him an alcoholic lemonade for a drink. On noticing the boy drinking from the can a security guard reported the incident to the police.

The child was taken to the Children's hospital and it was determined that no alcohol was in his system. CPS stepped in and the child was put into foster care.

The child was in care for two days. "I'd never drunk it, never purchased it, never heard of it," stated the professor, it's certainly not what I expected when I ordered a lemonade for my 7-year-old."


Humans Came Close to Extinction, Study Says


An extensive genetic study by researchers at Stanford University suggests that human beings nearly became extinct about 70,000 years ago, apparently because of a drought. The population may have dropped to as low as 2,000 individuals.

Researcher Spencer Wells calls the finding "truly an epic drama, written in our DNA." Human beings emerged in Africa about 200,000 years ago with "mitochondrial Eve," the mother of all humanity, and spread to other places 60,000 years ago.

Little has been known about the intervening 140,000 years, but the new study suggests that severe environmental conditions between 135,000 and 90,000 years ago forced people into tiny, isolated groups. The worldwide human population today is 6.6 billion.


London Smells Like %$#@


A stiff breeze blows across the European continent, bringing with it the smell of manure from Dutch farms. Dutch farmers, banned from spreading the stinky stuff during winter, are spreading it 'en masse', trying to rid themselves of over-supply.

The manure maneuver is going to leave a foul smell in the noses of Londoners for a couple more days until the wind direction changes. According to the Met Office, the scent is worse that usual due to stagnant winds which let the aroma build up.

London newspapers have dubbed the phenomenon 'Le Stink.' A National Farmers Union spokesman said if UK leaders go ahead with a similar idea to ban winter-time manure spreading, the UK has nothing to look forward to but more smelly days.


Wal-Mart Corporate Executives Gone Wild -- Videos for Sale


In 2006, Wal-Mart abruptly ended a handshake deal with Flagler Productions, a video production company that recorded Wal-Mart's corporate meetings. The cancellation of the verbal agreement caused Flagler to lay off most of its employees.

Now, Flagler is offering three decades worth of Wal-Mart meetings for sale on video, featuring everything from tough talk bashing unions to Wal-Mart executives dressed up as women.

Perhaps ironically, Wal-Mart is defending itself in a lawsuit that alleges that Wal-Mart discriminated against women in its management promotion policies. Wal-Mart says it doesn't think there will be much interest in the videos.


'The Simpsons' Removed by Venezuelan TV


A Venezuelan TV channel has yanked an 11:00am showing of "The Simpsons" off the air because it may be inappropriate for children. After receiving numerous complaints from viewers, the program was pulled Friday. Taking its place: "Baywatch Hawaii."

The TV station reportedly pulled the program after worrying that the series at that hour could violate national regulations prohibiting "messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents." Put in place by Hugo Chavez.

"We are hoping it will continue to have a good rating, because 'The Simpsons' worked very well - so much so that it had the highest levels of viewership for that morning timetable in the history of the channel," G.M. German Perez Nahin commented.


Olympic Charade Goes On ...While fearless Protestor Attempts to grasp the Torch


Sir Steve Redgrave started by passing the torch, where 80 sport and performers will continue on the 31 mile run from Wembley to the O2 Arena. Three arrests occurred as the torch arrived at a bus to carry the torch, within seconds.

Nick Cleg Lib Dem Leader urged PM Brown not to accept his role in receiving the flame until China communicates with the Dalai Lama. Voicing how he felt he expressed Browns partaking in this, was just "wholly inappropriate".

He continued by pointing out the reality how human rights have been continually abused. Dame Kelly Holmes will end the run before lighting the torch in front of 5,000 onlookers. This has high lighted the Chinese Olympics but not in the way they would
