Texan Zombies On The Loose

For years OBB News has been reporting about the amount of zombies to be found in the Texas and Florida areas but no one listened.
The commute into Austin Texas became one of horror as road signs told of the zombie danger.

There is only one thing worse than zombies, its Nazi zombies." This is really serious," Sara Hartley, a spokeswoman for the city Public Works Department told OBB News.

"It's sort of amusing, but not at all helpful," said Chris Lippincott, spokesman for the state Department of Transportation.

Not so amusing for us with tasty brains Mr Lippincott for that is the zombie main diet. OBB News suggests they take no chances with anyone from Texas or Florida and you must destroy the brain or sever the head.

No statement has been given from the Whitehouse yet which shows the seriousness of the situation.

Well Hung Chess Playa

Oliver Edwards-Cavill

Oliver Edwerds-Cavall a 15 year-old schoolboy was found hanged by his mother in a caravan he lived in on his family's smallholding near Tanby, Wales.

He had no history of depression and his parents said he was usually a happy, caring boy with a good sense of humour.

Pambrokeshire coroner Michael Howalls said that Oliver died from self-inflicted asphyxiation by hanging from a belt that had been tied to the bathroom door of the caravan in which he lived.

The family ate together, watched television but later there was "an argument over a chess game".

Chess arguments have killed 8 people in the UK this year alone the government are seeking to put restrictions on the game.

The general feeling from the family was that Oliver hung himself in a fit of temper in a happy, caring way, humourous way.

He had no history of illness or depression ................. just an insane temper it seems.

Top Psychologist Old Knudsen believes there is more than meets the eye with this case.

At the time of his death, his head teacher said Oliver was making good progress and had been due to sit his GCSEs this June.

His teachers described him as a "lovable character" with a "wicked sense of humour", who was warmly regarded by fellow pupils.

Just don't mess with him where Chess is concerned.

Police Say LOL To Gangs

The New York Police Department 'NYPD' is asking police recruits who have MySpace or Facebook pages to watch as an investigator looks through their most private postings.

The measure is designed to weed out would-be cops who have on their Web sites , violent or explicit imagery, racist rants and any other material considered objectionable. There is no written policy on what is objectionable investigators just know it when they see it. Sometimes the investigators comment LOL if the page is particularly good.

Without the applicant logging on, only a subpoena could get the NYPD that much access to the private Web pages.

One applicant had a picture of him pointing a gun at a buddy.

"He said it was just his friend," but at that point the interviewer thought it best that he not join the New York City Police Department as the safety was still on.

The police also Google would-be cops and visit them online in the public pages of social-networking sites which explains all the humourless commenters.

The department has been embarrassed by disclosures of inappropriate online postings by cops and recruits.

A rookie cop named Christian Torres was arrested and charged with twice robbing a Sovereign Bank in Manhattan, along with one in Pennsylvania.

Internal Affairs investigators discovered Torres had a MySpace page in which he posted cartoons about bank robberies and listed his profession as "Oink"making fun of the police nickname "pig" which many officers are proud of.

Other web pages have had videos of violent police beatings, explicit photos involving police uniforms or gear, and bigoted remarks. If you like that sort of thing one investigator said, you should read

Some recruits networking accounts included boasts of gang membership, or photos of the applicant sporting gang-related tattoos and making gang gestures. Shaven heads and neck tattoos should have given them away but this reporter thinks that it shows how the educational system is working as 10 years ago only 2% of gang members were on-line compared to today's 74%.

In many states like Florida gang membership is a bonus as they have their own guns and know how to use them.

One recruit had pictures and stories of how he did drugs and liked to beat up black people, he was allowed to join as boys will be boys.

Dun Rollin

Dung beetle attacks millipede

A scarab species has been filmed in Peru attacking and eating millipedes 10 times its length.

D. valgum or the Dung Beetle is no longer dining just on feces. Instead, the nocturnal creature prefers to decapitate live prey with its armour "teeth" and then devour their insides.

It is a rare example of a scavenger species turning carnivore, say US scientists in a Royal Society journal.

Dung beetles (Scarabaeidae) are not renowned for their predatory instincts. They feast on

fresh animal feces which they gather into balls and roll with their hind legs.

But after the species Deltochilum valgum was seen grappling with millipedes several times its size, Dr Trond Larsen of Princeton University decided to find out whether it could actually be preying on the creatures.

"This is a remarkable transition," wrote Dr Larsen, a tropical ecologist, in the journal Biology Letters.
"Despite its close relationships with dung feeding species, D. valgum has entirely abandoned its ball-rolling behaviour, it shows there is only so much crap you can take.
"This is the first known case of an obligate predatory dung beetle species."

The carnivorous beetles use the same mouthparts their cousins use to extract bacteria from dung and carrion as weapons to assault and kill their much larger prey.

When placed together in observation chambers, the beetles began their attacks by grasping a millipede's body with its mid- and hind-legs.
The millipedes - up to 110mm long - responded by coiling or flailing their bodies to resist the grip of beetles just 7-8mm wide.

After waiting until the flailing slowed down, the beetles inserted their armour teeth between body segments, prying upwards with their head while simultaneously sawing with their fore-teeth.

"During one kill we observed, the force of the beetle's prying severed the millipede's head from the rest of its body," said Dr Larsen.

The team say their discovery demonstrates how small changes in the physiology of a species can lead to giant leaps in its behaviour.

If they were 4 foot tall they would rule the world.

The scientists believe this unusual evolutionary transition from a scavenger to a hunter-predator was driven by high levels of competition for food and the use of steroids in cattle that gets passed on to the beetles thus making them more aggressive ........ like Americans.

Dung beetles have been found to be fussy eaters. In 2006, researchers in Kuwait found when offered dung from horse, camel and sheep the beetles preferred the more fluid horse dung to the others I mean who wouldn't?

African dung beetle was the first animal found to navigate using moonlight, enabling it to orientate itself and make a hasty retreat from competitors when rolling a ball of dung.

So what will be next ? we asked Dr Larsen: "Probably Dung Beetle bloggers".

Criminals Should Not Be Allowed To Hang Around

The Ugandan Death Row Rappers

Uganda's Supreme Court has ruled in a case involving more than 400 death row inmates that the death penalty is constitutional under their law.

It was suggested that hanging was cruel and recommended that parliament consider another means of execution such as throwing criminals into farm machinery or getting hacked to death by machetes .

Convicts on death row will not stay there any longer than three years so all round good news for them.

Its bad when an African nation deems hanging cruel. Although the death penalty has not been used since 1999, the court said it acted as a deterrent to murder, except in the case of those 400.

Justice Egonda-Ntendesaid "I would agree that hanging as a method of execution as it is carried out in Uganda is a cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment," .

Old Knudsen who was once hanged for murder said earlier from his Malibu home: " The crime should fit the punishment its as simple as that."

Bush Attacks Police Officer

John Nash a corn fed 25 year-old police officer kept chasing a suspect for his first arrest even though he had a six-inch branch stuck in his eye.

He slipped on mud and slid head first into a bush while pursuing the man in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, just six days into the job.

The keen as mustard officer only realised he was injured when he arrested the suspect, who told him he had "better get to hospital".

After three hours of surgery, which saved his eye, and says he now just wants to return to work.

The officer was in an unmarked police vehicle following a car being driven erratically on an estate when it was abandoned in Walton Close.

Two men ran off and Pc Nash gave chase, in conditions described as "driving rain", and cornered one in a dead end.

The X-ray of Pc Nash's head shows the stick came to rest underneath his brain but as the brain wasn't very large there was no sign of any stick related damage.

It shows the dangers that police officers face every day, slipping and falling face first into shrubs has taken the lives of 3 British Boobies this year.

PC Nash has got his peripheral vision back and a "significant" amount of his sight has returned. He still cannot see bushes though.

The suspect was arrested but later released without charge.

Why Stay Sober?

Worried about the worldwide recession? Well you should be. Why not have a drink and forget about it because things are worse than first thought.

Beer sales are known for being recession-resistant, but not this time around. The London-based brewer behind the Miller brand recently reported that its shipments dropped unexpectedly in the third quarter.
Miller Coors said its premium light brand volumes were down 2.4%. Miller Lite sales were down 7.5%.
Beer sales normally grow at about 1% per year in 2008, they only grew by half that amount. It could get worse in 2009.

The cheap gut killing Kamchata vodka is selling well which might mean that a higher alcohol content may be needed to look at pay slips and pension plans.

Stuck On you

Abigail and Brittany Hensel are 18-year-old dicephalus twins that have two spines, which join at the pelvis, two hearts and stomachs, three kidneys, two gall bladders and four lungs.

They share one liver and ribcage and a nervous system. Below the waist all organs including intestines, bladder and reproductive organs are shared.

Each twin controls one side of the body and they can play the piano, swim, ride a bike, play Twister, drive a car and take part in sports including boxing in which they fight themselves.

Born on March 7, 1990, in Minnesota, are thought to be one of only four sets of dicephalus twins ever to survive into teen years.

The twins even hope to marry someday, not each other that would be sick but to some man or two maybe.

Their f
ather, Mike, believes that there is no reason why the girls shouldn't marry someday, saying "They're good-looking girls. They're witty. They've got everything going for them, except they're together."

Are you a fella that has a melted twin fantasy? or two guys that don't mind sharing? I can see parental issues in the future and what would happen if the girls wanted to split up from their husbands?

OBB News wishes the girls good luck but this reporter could not take nagging in stereo.

Aussie Writer Jailed For Bad Book

What an attractive family

Harry Nicolaides an Australian writer wrote a novel four years ago, which contained a brief passage referring to an unnamed crown prince. It sold just seven copies.

For this he has been sentenced to three years in a Thailand jail.

He admitted the charge of insulting the royal family, but said he was unaware he was committing an offence.

Nicolaides was arrested as he was leaving the country last August.

His self-published book, called Verisimilitude, is a must read book about a young boy and his homosexual unicorn for some reason it was in no way a big hit. The only copy whose whereabouts are known sits on the shelf of the Thai National Library.

Shackled in leg irons, and wearing standard-issue prison pyjamas, Nicolaides pleaded guilty to the charges against him at Bangkok's Criminal Court.

He was quickly found guilty, with a judge telling the court: "He has written a book that slandered the king, the crown prince and Thailand and the monarchy."

The court initially sentenced him to six years in jail, but reduced the term because of his guilty plea.

Before the trial Nicolaides had seemed stunned by what was happening to him, describing it is like a ''bad dream''.

Indeed it does seem like a bad dream. Thailand is known for being a corrupt and primitive country so this is not very surprising. Anti-monarchy sentiment is ripe with people sentenced for 6 years for just giving a speech and 3,000 websites have been blocked.

Recently a Thai police officer said that the BBC's south-east Asia correspondent Jonathan Head insulted King Bhumibol Adulyadej . Anyone can make these claims and its not like you'll get real justice in Thailand. The BBC has rejected this claim.

Jonathan Head does think that as a repentant foreigner, Harry Nicolaides does have a good chance of being pardoned by the king lets hope that is so.

For the record OBB News just wants to say how much it respects King Bhumibol Adulyadej as he must be a very brave man if that undead creature beside him is his wife. No wonder the king never smiles.

Crook Waits His Turn

Feliks Goldshtein a 24-year-old from Highland Heights, Ohio, America, may just be the dumbest but most polite crook in America.

He stood in line at the bank wearing a ski mask. When the teller told him to take it off he brandished a toy gun and told the teller to give him all the money.

Goldshtein was arrested minutes later following a brief car chase as putting on his seat belt slowed him down and using turn signals gave his direction away.

Jackson Is A Mess

Michael Jackson the former pop idol and child molester reportedly plans to end his longstanding feud with Paul McCartney by leaving him the Beatles' back catalog in his will.

Jacko and Macca have been estranged since a falling out back in 1985, after Jackson, 50, beat out McCartney and Yoko Ono in a bidding war for the rights to 200 of Fab Four's legendary songs.

Paul, 66, has long felt betrayed by Jackson as it was him who advised him to buy up songs, he didn't mean his songs . In 2006 McCartney said, "You know what doesn't feel very good, is going on tour and paying to sing all my songs. Every time I sing 'Hey Jude,' I've got to pay someone."

Just tape it off the radio like I do Sir Paul.

The pair collaborated on Jackson's 1982 'The Girl is Mine,' and McCartney's 1983 single 'Say, Say, Say' from 'Pipes of Peace.'

Michael told his lawyers he was sad he no longer talks to Sir Paul and said he wanted to make things right but only after hes dead.

Last month, Jackson denied rumors that he was suffering from a deadly lung condition and was battling emphysema, also losing the vision in his left eye.

It turned out that his forehead melted only covering his eye as for the other claims who really cares?

Google Warming?

Two search requests on the internet website Google produce "as much carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle", according to a Harvard University academic.

US physicist Alex Wiener-Gross claims that a typical Google search on a desktop computer produces about 7g CO2.

However, these figures were disputed by Google, who say did a search on the matter and say a typical search produced only 0.2g of carbon dioxide.

A recent study by American research firm Gatner suggested that IT now causes two percent of global emissions and that 59% of all IT specialists are sex offenders with penis issues probably.

"Google isn't any worse than any other data centre operator. If you want to supply really great and fast result, then that's going to take extra energy to do so,"said Dr Wiener-Gross.

In a statement on its official blog, Google said that Dr Wiener-Gross' figures were "many times too high."

Dr Weiner-Gross countered those claims saying that everytime Google lets Old Knudsen create a blog 10 baby seals die.

Old Knudsen was unavailable for comment as he was blogging.

"We've made great strides to reduce the energy used by our data centres, but we still want clean and affordable sources of electricity for the power that we do use," said Google in its statement.

"In 2007, we co-founded the Climate Savers Computing Initiative. This non-profit consortium is committed to cutting the energy consumed by computers in half by 2010 by making them slower and having them crash more and so reducing global CO2 emissions by 54 million tons per year. That's a lot of kettles."

The Devil Looks After His Own

Anchorage , Alaska, America. The winner of the $500,000 lottery drawing came forward to collect his prize. The raffle was designed to benefit the charity organization Standing Together Against Rape, or STAR.

The irony is that the winner, Alec Ahsoak aged 54 was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor twice in 1993 and once in 2000.

He says he plans to use the money to buy a home and and a rape van and to improve his life, and said he will donate $100,000 to STAR

Poor Ahsoak says he's had a hard-luck life, and the money will help him turn that around. He grew up in foster homes and the Jesse Lee Home for Children in Seward. I'm sure the minor he abused feels very sorry for him.

In the past he said he has donated money to a children's home in South Dakota, but that could not be verified. He even wants to volunteer and work with children.

He does not plan to give any of the money to his victim .

After taxes Ahsoak took home about $350,000 so we'll see if he actually gives $100,000 away. If you can't trust a sex offender then who can you trust?

Gu Gu Strikes Again

Beijing, China, Gu Gu the panda with a taste for human flesh has struck again, this time mauling someone who jumped a barrier to retrieve a child's toy, his third attack on a visitor at the Beijing zoo.

Zhang Jiao a tourist went over a 4-foot, 7-inch barrier surrounding the panda's outdoor exercise area to retrieve a toy dropped by his clumsy 5-year-old son.

The 240-pound Gu Gu bit the intruder's legs and refused to let go until zookeepers pried his jaws open with Panda jaw opening tools .

Zhang had looked around to check if there were pandas nearby before jumping the barrier but pandas being one of nature's top predators used its black and white fur to conceal itself against the grey concrete before attacking.

Gu Gu first made news in 2007 when he bit a drunken tourist who jumped into his pen and tried to hug and molest him. The drunkard bit the panda back. Many have called for panda therapy after the incident.

In October, Gu Gu viciously bit a teenager who climbed into his exercise area because he was a stupid teenager.

It is not clear if Zhang would face criminal charges as there are signs posted all around the zoo about not feeding the animals.

Nothing On TV Anyway

Houston, Texas, America A death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye and told authorities he ate it.

Andre Thomas, 25, was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004.
Their hearts also had been ripped out. He was convicted and condemned for the infant's death.

While in Jail , Thomas plucked out his right eye before his trial in 2004. A judge ruled he was competent to stand trial as that is a common trick to fake appearing to be crazy .

Thomas was recently found in his cell on death row with blood on his face and was taken to the infirmary.

Thomas told them he pulled out his left eye and ingested it.

Thomas is now being treated at a prison psychiatric facility near Richmond southwest of Houston and is now getting regular meals.

"He will finally be able to receive the mental health care that we had wanted and begged for from day 1," Bobbie Peterson-Cate, Thomas' trial attorney, told OBB News. "He is insane and mentally ill. It is exactly the same reason he pulled out the last one."

Speculation on the Lawyer's part as he does not have a psychiatric degree and can not judge someone as being insane.

At his trial, defense lawyers also argued he suffered from alcohol and drug abuse and any other excuse they could think of for not accepting responsibility for his actions .

Next they will be appealing for mercy because Thomas is blind.

OBB News can not think of one good reason why Thomas should still not be executed but there is still no scheduled date for one. Thomas told his attorney that his eyes tasted like chicken.

Donald Who?

Donald Peters bought two Connecticut Lottery tickets at a local store on November 1st as he has done the past 20 years.

Later that day, the 79-year-old retired hat factory worker suffered a fatal heart attack while working in his yard in Danbury.

His widow cashed in one of the Lottery tickets that in her grief she has almost forgotten about. It won her $US10 million.

"I'm numb," Charlotte Peters, 78, said at Connecticut Lottery office.

"I've always wanted a Corvette, but I don't think I'll buy one. I'll stick to a small car. I might go to Mohegan Sun," she said, referring to the casino in Connecticut.

"I'm going to go home and sit and think."

The Peters children think their father would have appreciated the irony.

"He'd be very mad, he just passed away and she won a lot of money," said Brian Peters, one of the couple's three children.

"He'd say, 'Figures!'"

OBB News just hopes the merry widow remembers to bury her husband.

So Much For Agincourt

About 150 homes were evacuated for about eight hours after police arrested a man and called the bomb squad when they searched his top floor flat in an Essex town.

Officers were called in the early morning to reports of a man with a longbow in Gladwin Way, Harlow.

Armed officers arrived and a 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.

In the UK if you are found with a box cutter you will be charged with possession of an offensive weapon unless you can provide good reason for having it like using it for work. He must of annoyed a neighbour who called the police when he was out doing target practice.

The man's excuse of defense against alien or French invasion just wasn't good enough.

A suspicious car that looked swarthy and foreign found near the block of flats in Gladwin Way where the suspect lived was also taken away by police.

An Essex police spokesman said they had been concerned about a number of household items that had been adapted into a "science fiction style".

The Essex police are not used to microwaves and playstations.

The bomb squad said items believed "of concern" to police were not dangerous but highly entertaining and people have been returned home.

Fun Loving Criminals

Seattle, America. A college student dressed in a vintage German military uniform was fatally shot by police on New Year's Day.

Seattle police were called to University of Washington senior Miles Murphy's apartment after receiving complaints that several men were firing rifle and shotgun rounds into the air.

Murphy emerged from inside and pointed what was later identified as a World War II Kar 98 German infantry rifle with a bayonet at the officer. He refused calls to drop the weapon and was shot several times.

Police searching the house found alcohol, live ammunition and a large collection of German, Russian and Nazi memorabilia including photographs and uniforms.

Murphy "wasn't a Nazi," Hattie Taylor, a friend, told OBB News. "He was just fascinated with the past... He liked to dress up and have fun.."

Ravenna the area in which Murphy lived is about the closest thing Seattle has to a Jewish neighborhood maybe he should have dressed as one of the good guys.

Murphy, 22, was a senior Germanics major and wanted to be a German literature professor and had a large collection of WWII memorabilia.

He was "a peaceful and loving young man fascinated with war and Nazis," said his mother, Dianne Murphy.

OBB News was pondering a shooting in 1998 of a 19-year-old black girl Tyisha Miller by 4 police officers in Riverside, California.

Sitting unresponsive in the front seat of her car with the music turned up and a handgun on her lap while she waited for family to help with her flat tire.

Her family members had keys to the car but instead of opening it they called 911. Shows you what they thought of Miller. They said they were concerned that Ms. Miller was having a seizure. More likely off her head on drugs.

Reverend Bernell Butler, Ms. Miller's cousin and a spokesman for the family, "but we got the same old thing. Police officers are able to murder and get away with it." Butler said that all he and the family wanted was that the officers be made to answer to a judge and jury "like anyone else who shot a defenseless girl 12 times while she sat unconscious in her car."

Since then Miller has been painted as a fun loving girl who may have dropped out of school but had dreams about joining the army.

The previous assaults her and her friends had done on other girls and the threats she made to a co-worker that got her fired from a security job when the co-worker asked her not to let her gang member friends hang around were glossed over. Oh a few weeks later she reapplied for her job. Crackheads have no memory.

Jeffrey Dahmer was described as such a nice quiet young man.

John Travolta's Son Dead

The son of aging movie star John Travolta died while at a resort in the Bahamas. The 16-year-old Jett was vacationing with Travolta and wife Kelly Preston.

There have been reports that Jett was autistic, though Travolta has denied it as autism doesn't exist in Scientology. He said instead that he suffered from Kawasaki Syndrome, a condition which the sufferer believes themselves to be a Japanese motorcycle and often leads to heart disease.

Jett suffered from seizures and was last seen going into the bathroom at their private suite at the Old Bahama Bay Resort . The body was discovered by the caretaker.

An autopsy is being performed to determine the exact cause of death. Saturday night fever has not been ruled out.

OBB News extends its condolences but at the same time asks, "Where is your God now Scientologist?"

Doctor Congo Must Be Stopped

The UN refugee agency says rebels from the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) lead by Dr Congo are advancing towards the Central African Republic and villages are being set alight, women raped and children being forced to do chores and homework.

LRA rebels massacred close to 500 villagers in the past week, near the border with Uganda.

It follows an offensive against the rebels launched in December by Ugandan, Southern Sudanese and Congolese forces.

Meanwhile, there are reports of LRA attacks on villages in southern Sudan.

Meanwhile, the governor of the Sudanese region of Western Equatoria, Jemma Nunu Kumba, said that insecurity was increasing along Congo's border with Sudan.

"The LRA are attacking and looting communities, including parts of Maridi, Ibba, Yambio, Ezo and Nzara counties, as they continue to escape the regional operations," she said, referring to areas bordering on the Democratic Republic of Congo.

DR Congo for the last few years, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

OBB News is wondering why this is not exactly headline news in the west. Oh thats right its black people.

Are Children Marrying Too Young?

Anonymous the bane of the blogging world has done it again but this time for good and not evil. They paid for 8-year-old Nojoud's 30-year-old husband to divorce her.
Not from a civilised country but instead from the Yemen where this is an all too common occurrence. Feminist groups in Yemen are urging the Parliament to legally define a minimum marriage age.

A few months ago, Nojoud was an average 8-year-old girl from a poor family. Then Nojoud’s loving father decided to marry her off to a man more than three times her age. Overnight, Nojoud became a wife, enduring physical and sexual abuse for two months until she ran away with the help of her uncle and filed a court case against her father and her husband.

Lawyer Shatha Mohammed Nasser and Judge Abud Al-Khaleaq Ghowber, paid her way out of marriage with YR 100,000 from an anonymous donor in the Emirates.

“This was the first time a girl came to us for a divorce. We are going to do our best to push the parliament to change the marriage law,” said Judge Ghowber. Who is happy with a high divorce rate for under age girls.

“I am so happy to be free and I will go back to school and will never think of getting married again," Nojoud said joyfully. "It is a good feeling to be rid of my husband and his bad treatment.”

Nojoud with her lawyer in the court.

According to the International Center for Research on Women’s 2007 statistics, Yemen is one of 20 developing countries where early marriage is common. Nearly half of all Yemeni girls are married before the age of 18.

Most women have their first child immediately after their first menstruation cycle and are likely to have a child every 12 months during their reproductive lifespan. Yemen's fertility rate is extremely high, with an average 6.3 children per each woman, and the country also has some of the highest mother and infant mortality rates worldwide.

The Prophet Mohammad married a 9 year-old girl named Aisha when he was about 53 year-old. While OBB News understands that in less civilised cultures and religions such as Islam and Catholicism pedophilia is acceptable and protected but it is harmful to the children involved and the children that they give birth to. Nature should decide on when someone gets married and that is when they are phsyically and mentally prepared to do so and at their own free will.

Another divorce of an 8-year old girl to a 58 year old man has been turned down in a Saudi court as the judge said she is old enough to get married but not old enough to decide on a divorce.

"She doesn't know yet that she has been married," the lawyer said then of the girl who was about to begin her fourth year at primary school..

The father had agreed to marry off his daughter for an advance dowry of 30,000 riyals ($8,000), as the poor man was apparently facing financial problems

OBB News suggests getting a job? just an idea.

Human Traffic Comes To A Stand Still

There were 124 passengers on Northwest Airlines Flight 59 when it left the Netherlands. There were 125 when it landed in Boston.

A woman went into labour and gave birth to a healthy baby girl over the Atlantic Ocean on during the eight-hour flight from Amsterdam.

There was a doctor and a paramedic on the flight that assisted in the birth or at least they said they were.

The plane landed and the mother and baby were immediately taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

The nationality of the mother is not known , but said for customs' purposes the baby was considered a Canadian citizen because she was born over Canada's airspace.

Usually people from the Netherlands smuggle drugs in their nether regions, this woman is being held by police for smuggling babies.

Some Things Never Change

Former Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson of the 1970's once complained that the BBC spends too much money and is run by hippies.

The BBC charges a licence fee saying that it doesn't have commercials just like how paying for cable was supposed to mean no commercials. Wilson described the fee as a 'regressive form of taxation'.

He complained that he was 'followed around the country by a large BBC television crew' who 'stayed in the best hotels and ate the best food'.

Isn't it funny how in the 90's Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair threw lavish parties at Number 10 for rock stars and embraced the whole 'Cool Britannia' era?

Only on OBB News will give you unbiased news. When the BBC cries about the Palestinians OBB news will state how they are just as bad as the Israelis and it was them who voted for Hamas after all.

OBB News asks you to think behind the story and educate yourself on the world.

News Stories Of 2008

Eighteen-year-old Florida man Michael Alfinez was jailed for shooting a homemade rap video in which he coaxed his senile grandmother into holding a gun and threatening to "shoot all pigs."

According to detectives, 85-year-old Marie Huertes said she felt "ashamed" while viewing the video and that "they are making a criminal out of me because I like pigs." The rest of the Alfinez family chalked it up to the proverbial "misunderstanding" OBB News wonders what they will say when the porno comes out.

Meet The Grunts

A British court banned 32-year-old Adam Hinton from visiting the apartment of a 28-year-old girlfriend after neighbours complained about their noisy lovemaking sessions.
One woman told the court her young daughter was so traumatized by the sounds of intense pleasure that the toddler began suffering nightmares and wetting the bed. "These were sounds she had never heard before, it was like people having orgasms while playing basket ball," she added.

Aren't Teachers Supposed To Be Intelligent?

An English schoolteacher alleged in court that a Syrian airline pilot tricked her into having sex with him by claiming the best way to apply a certain gynecological ointment into her vagina was via the tip of his penis.
According to her lawyer, this happened more then once, and the man "thrust slowly or quickly" during specific sessions depending on "doctor's advice."
