The Bubbles 'n' Babes car wash in Brisbane prompted a flood of complaints with a topless car wash for A$55 ($45) and a nude car wash with X-rated lap-dance service for A$100. rofessional car washes have boomed in most cities with drought-stricken Australians banned from washing their own cars due to tough water restrictions.
That’s right. In yet one more sign that Armageddon is quickly approaching, Mr. Cornell’s wish apparently was that Emma not be told, so she wasn’t. There’s even a blog discussion where people can say whether they would have wanted to be told.
“Her dad didn’t want her to be upset or to feel like she had to leave the house to come to his funeral. He didn’t want to ruin the experience for her,” Emma’s boyfriend was quoted as saying.
Many Germans enjoy nude sunbathing which is allowed in public parks. The 41-year-old was carrying his clothes in a bag when police stopped him Monday evening after complaints from pedestrians.
The tourist was not under the influence of drugs, said police. They made him get dressed and pay a 200 euro ($269) deposit pending his investigation for indecent behavior.

Currently, handguns in Canada are classified as either restricted or prohibited weapons. Canadians can receive a licence to own a restricted weapon if they can prove it's part of a gun collection or used for target practice or target-shooting competitions.
In 2005, handguns accounted for almost six in 10 firearm homicides, compared to one in four that involved rifles and handguns, according to Statistics Canada.
Of the 658 homicides reported by police last year, 222 were committed with a firearms, up from 173 in 2004.
Hobson said Thursday that the Crown is trying to build its case around the motion-sensor light on Ross's house that illuminated the path between her home and Sylvester's.
The light was off at the time of the attack, and the Crown is arguing Sylvester turned it off before assaulting Ross, proving he intended to kill her.
Don't rely on Ross's boyfriend, defence lawyer urges.
Hobson told jurors this argument is flimsy proof of premeditation, and argued that the Crown is building its case on a house of cards. He suggested it would be dangerous for jurors to accept the Crown's argument. Hobson also said police and the Crown made a grave mistake by relying on Ross's boyfriend, Sean Hines, as a witness. Because he was a suspect at one point, Hines is an unreliable witness with selfish motivation.

Astudent was shot and killed inside C.W. Jefferys on Wednesday. Police initially received reports of a drowning at the school pool at 2:35pm, but when they arrived they found a teenager suffering from a single bullet wound to the chest. The boy, who was found in a hallway, was without vital signs when discovered.
A science teacher performed CPR, but the teen, who was rushed to hospital, later passed away. He's been identified as 15-year-old Jordan Manners.
Students finally left on buses for nearby Elia Middle School down the road just before the dinner hour and then home to their anxious parents.
Reports indicate an argument at a nearby plaza may have led to the shooting, but authorities won't confirm anything - including if they may know the name of a suspect or if there was more than one person involved.Many fellow students have expressed it on a quickly devised page on the social network site Facebook, where students from across the city left words of condolences for the victim.
GORE: But, yes, it's true, I have not made a so- called Sherman statement and ruled it out for all time. I see no reason or necessity to do that.
But that's not an effort to be coy or to prop the door open or to invite such speculation. Look, I don't know why it's ordained that one -- that as soon as one presidential campaign is over with, the next one begins right away. I'm one of those who doesn't like to see the Christmas goods put into storage right after Halloween.
KING: No, you don't. But -- and I don't mean to be coy, but why not take the Sherman approach? Why not say, I don't want to run, and if nominated, I won't serve?
GORE: Or whatever. Well, I see no reason to do that. Why would I do that?
KING: Because when you don't, you leave things open.
GORE: Well, I have not closed the door at some point in the future to consider being a candidate.
So read between the lines. He's running.
Fortunately, Carolyn didn't sit in the chair. She and her daughter exited the house through the back door.
According to his wife, Monroe threatened to kill her and their teenage daughter before crashing his truck into the house twice.
Cue the music to Cops. Bad boys, Bad boys...
Although New York's cabs are going green, Toronto is maybe 10 years away from introducing such dramatic change to an industry already suffering economically, according to Toronto councillor Howard Moscoe.
In New York, the city's fleet of yellow cabs will go entirely hybrid within five years, and all new taxis will have to meet emissions and mileage standards by next year, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced yesterday.He may have a good point, a Prius in Canada will cost almost $40,000 for a cabbie. Though why stop at cabs, maybe the entire driving public should be pushed to hybrids.

The two women and a man were held up at gunpoint around 2 a.m. Saturday on the beach by Shorewood Villas on Hilton Head Island, Beaufort County Sheriff’s Capt. Toby McSwain said.
The robbers took cell phones, purses, wallets and cash before one of them pistol whipped the man, McSwain said.
The victims then saw the same two men again at their hotel Saturday afternoon and called police. “They were basically just hanging out at the pool,” McSwain said.
The gun deputies think was used in the robberies was found in a restroom trash can near the pool and other items taken were found on the beach, authorities said.
Brandon J. Brooks, 18, and Dillion Clark, 16, were charged with armed robbery. Brooks also was charged with carrying a firearm during a violent crime and misdemeanor marijuana possession.
I think Dennis got himself a trophy wife.
Just six months ago the Harper government appeared well and truly in charge of things. But what's left of its legislative agenda is now stalled by House of Commons committees controlled by the opposition, and the government's response is not to appeal to Canadians for a majority mandate, but rather to issue a 200- page instruction manual for its own committee chairs on how to be just as disruptive at hearings as Liberal, NDP and Bloc MPs.
Part of the problem is that the Conservatives efficiently blew through their election commitments in record time. So they really need a new mandate.
Researchers have found that seniors who participated in weight training not only improved muscle strength and endurance – they actually reversed some of the effects of aging in certain muscle tissue at the cellular level.
In a study published online in PLoS One – a journal of the Public Library of Science – the researchers found that energy-producing "mitochondria" in skeletal muscle cells can be revitalized with weight-training exercise, returning them to a state closer to those found in younger people.What they found is that mitochondria which allow cells to use oxygen to convert fat, protein and carbohydrates into energy become less efficient as you get older. Exercise made aging mitochondria pattern back towards a younger person, almost reversing the aging signature, pretty much by 40, 45 years with six months of weight training.
Now when will they develop a way to grow back my hair.
Once again Toronto police are using surveillance video to assist in identifying a murder suspect.
The knapsack-toting man captured by surveillance cameras leaving the underground parking lot where multimillionaire philanthropist Glen Davis was gunned down Friday afternoon has been identified as a suspect, by homicide police this afternoon.
Police today released a video tracking the movements of the man, who police believe is in his mid-to-late twenties, in the underground parking garage near Eglinton Ave. East and Mount Pleasant Rd. Still images culled from the video surveillance cameras were released publicly over the weekend.
Davis was a philanthropist who donated millions of dollars to conservation and environmental causes, including World Wildlife Fund Canada.
Now they have a GPS for your dog. The sensor is on your dog's collar and you can use the GPS to locate your dog. But it is pricey at $500. I paid less for the two GPS devices I own.
"It's my water. It keeps me going. It's the fluid that keeps me alive," Sanchez said. "I really think I am addicted. I really think it would be very hard for me to stop."
She drinks more than a case of Diet Coke a day, or 12 cans, almost one for every hour she is awake. While the drinks may be low in calories, they have plenty of caffeine, which can be addictive.
"People do indeed become addicted to caffeine very rapidly, and they also withdraw from caffeine very rapidly," said Dr. Harris Stratyner, an addiction specialist at Mount Sinai Medical Center. "It can make their sleep patterns disturbed. It can make them restless, wired, anxious." "There is some evidence that the acid load of soda, regular or diet, has an adverse affect on bone health," said Dr. David Katz, nutrition expert at the Yale School of Medicine. "I would be very worried that if you are drinking 12 cans a day, diet or regular, it's potentially going to do damage to your skeleton, and eventually that can be a very serious problem.
The Coca-Cola Company said it sees nothing wrong with drinking lots of Diet Coke. "Great taste. No calories. Wholesome ingredients. How could you drink too much?"
Eva Marie Mauldin said Satan compelled her 19-year-old husband, Joshua Royce Mauldin, to microwave their daughter May 10 because the devil disapproved of Joshua's efforts to become a preacher.
"Satan saw my husband as a threat. Satan attacked him because he saw (Joshua) as a threat," Eva Mauldin told Houston television station KHOU-TV.
A Galveston County grand jury indicted Joshua Mauldin last week on child injury charges after hearing evidence that he placed his daughter in a motel microwave for 10 to 20 seconds.
The infant, Ana Marie, remains hospitalized. She suffered burns on the left side of her face and to her left hand, police said.
Meanwhile, Eva Mauldin has set up a MySpace page, "Joshua Mauldin is not a Monster," in hopes of defending her husband and making pleas for people to help her.
Twin brothers Raymon and Richard Miller are the father and uncle to a 3-year-old little girl. The problem is, they don't know which is which. Or who is who.
The identical Missouri twins say they were unknowingly having sex with the same woman. And according to the woman's testimony, she had sex with each man on the same day. Within hours of each other.
This sounds just too weird. The woman is a slut and the brothers are jerks just trying to avoid paying support. The whole bunch should be sterilized.

Britney Spears is obviously working on a comeback which is why she has been doing 15-20 minutes sets at small little clubs - the House of Blues. She does this trashy act with 4 dancers where she lip-syncs through a few songs. What is mind-boggling is that people are paying a lot of money is see this amateurish show.
On Saturday, while in a club in Orlando, Britney's track starting SKIPPING and then the vocals went out. She looked like a deer caught in headlights-- looked frantically around to the backstage wings, then turned her back to the audience and kept dancing. Video is below.
Bokito grabbed a woman, dragged her with him briefly and bit her before barging into a restaurant. The poor woman is in hospital, where she is being treated for bite wounds and a broken arm and wrist. Injuries to her hand are actually quite serious and required surgery. Although in media interviews she says she still adores the gorilla.
Bokito was eventually shot with a sedative dart and recaptured.
