For $350 you and a friend can watch the Super Bowl from a stairwell


Leave it to Jerry Jones to figure out another way for you not to see the Super Bowl.

After selling standing-room only tickets and tickets outside the stadium to watch the Super Bowl on large screens, Jones and the NFL have now put on sale “stairwell standing” tickets.

About 300 of these tickets are available. A pair currently sells for $350 to stand in the stairwell.

Arlington city fire marshals have signed off on the sale of these tickets.

Combine the 18,000 temporary seats being installed in the stadium and the party plaza tickets, Jones is looking at setting an NFL record by selling around 105,000 tickets to the big game.

Girl finds "Nice Tits" written on Valentine's Day candy



A 12-year-old girl says she found a naughty adult message on a piece of kids Valentine's Day candy. "I thought it was kind of shocking," said the girl, Ciara Bush. "I was reading them, and I brought it to my mom after I saw it."

Her parents were stunned when they saw "Nice Tits," printed on the small piece of candy.

He e-mailed the candy maker and said he got a quick response. A phone call came the next day asking him to mail the candy and the entire bag back to the company so it could investigate. While he was shocked, Deanda said he doesn’t have any plans to sue. He just wanted to warn other parents. "I wanted to bring it to everybody's attention," Deanda said. "Watch what you get."

Mug Shot of the Week




This is Jerome Smith, a heavily-tattooed 29-year-old arrested on suspicion of assaulting a pregnant woman. Smith, from Cincinnati, Ohio, is alleged to have hit the woman, who is eight-months gone, in the head with a gun.

But his tattooed face has the misspelled word ‘Jenius’ on his forehead. The ‘J’ may be a cursive ‘G’, in which case Smith should have demanded a refund from the tattooist for their amateur work.

Smith is currently holed up in a Cincinnati jail on the assault charges. He has previous convictions for attempted murder, burglary, and drug possession.

Man arrested trying to get loan to pay restitution to bank he robbed



A man sent to prison for armed robbery at a Madison credit union in 2008 was arrested Monday at the institution's Skowhegan branch as he attempted to get a loan to pay court-ordered restitution for the robbery.

Joshua Lieberman, 21, of Skowhegan, was arrested on charges of violating the conditions of bail and probation by entering any one of four Franklin Somerset Federal Credit Union offices.

District Attorney Evert Fowle said the bail and probation violations are not the first against Lieberman since his release from prison on the robbery charge.

On three occasions in 2009 and 2010, Lieberman violated his probation by possessing marijuana and was sent back to jail twice.

On his third violation, last October, his probation officer filed a motion in court to force Lieberman to pay the restitution from the robbery.

Lieberman was taken into custody Monday afternoon at the credit union's Skowhegan branch on East Leavitt Street after a teller recognized him from the robbery.

"He said he just didn't realize it was same corporation," Skowhegan police Officer Ronnie Blodgett said. "That just doesn't even sound right, that he went back to the institution that he stole from to get a loan to pay off what he owed them."

Lieberman was convicted of armed robbery and sentenced in December 2009 to serve eight years in the state prison, with all but one year suspended and three years of probation, once he was released. Police said he was the driver of the getaway car in the heist.

He also was ordered to pay $2,500 in restitution.

Fowle said Lieberman has about seven years left to serve on his suspended sentence.

Well Josh you're sort of on the right track. The idea of making restitution is to acknowledge your mistakes and make things right. But trying to borrow money from the credit union you robbed isn't so smart. I think they would also see you as a bad credit risk. There are different ways to get money besides stealing or borrowing it. It's called a job. A job is an arrangement where you provide labour or services and you receive money in return. You could use employment income to pay back the credit union.

Firefighters called to rescure beer




A drunk man at the Kaiserslautern train station sounded a fire alarm Wednesday in hopes that fire fighters would rescue his beer, police reported. He is now under investigation for the misuse of emergency services.

The 44-year-old had stepped off a train along with a 28-year-old friend for a smoke break at the station in the Rhineland-Palatinate city. But the duo were dismayed to see the train drive away without them – carrying a bag full of beer they’d left behind, according to the police statement.

Panicked, the older man broke through the protective glass around a fire alarm, prompting Kaiserslautern fire fighters to rush onto the scene. “There was no real emergency,” the statement said. “Because there was no other contact person on the platform, the drunk man sounded the alarm.”

Authorities determined that he had a blood alcohol content of 1.95 promille, or .195 percent. The man also injured his hand while breaking the glass casing around the alarm, they said.

Improv Everywhere: novice skater becomes a master



For its latest public performance, Improv Everywhere presented a completely novice skater so inept that he was stranded on the ice when it was time for the rink to be resurfaced.

In Canada, Rogers likes to ration your Internet usage


This is the state of the Canadian Internet. We have extreme concentration in telecommunication companies (mine is Rogers) and a weak, useless regulator.

Man claims gay sex rampage, attempted suicide and compulsive gambling caused by Parkinson’s Drug


A French father-of-two is to take GlaxoSmithKline to court alleging the British firm's drug to treat Parkinson's disease turned him into a gay sex and gambling addict.

The 51-year-old's lawyers say their client's behaviour changed radically after he was first administered the drug in 2003 for the illness, which causes tremors, slows movement and disrupts speech. Didier Jambart, a married father-of-two who says he has attempted suicide three times, claims he became addicted to Internet gambling, losing the family's savings and stealing to feed his habit.

he also became a compulsive gay sex addict and began exposing himself on the internet and cross-dressing. His risky sexual encounters led to him being raped, his lawyers said. The behaviour stopped when he stopped taking the drugs in 2005 but by then he had been demoted in his defence ministry job and was suffering from psychological trauma resulting from his addictions, his lawyers said.

The plaintiff is seeking a total of 450,000 euros ($610,000) in damages from Glaxo, which he accuses of selling a "defective" drug, and from his neurologist for having failed to properly inform him about the drug. The drug, Requip, has been known for years to have undesired side effects but a warning only appeared on its package insert in 2006, his lawyers said.

Woman uses sperm from oral sex to get pregnant, lawsuits ensue


An appeals court said a man can press a claim for emotional distress after learning a former lover had used his sperm to have a baby. But he can’t claim theft, the ruling said, because the sperm were hers to keep.

The ruling Wednesday by the Illinois Appellate Court sends Dr. Richard O. Phillips’ distress case back to trial court.

Phillips accuses Dr. Sharon Irons of a “calculated, profound personal betrayal” after their affair six years ago, saying she secretly kept semen after they had oral sex, then used it to get pregnant.

He said he didn’t find out about the child for nearly two years, when Irons filed a paternity lawsuit. DNA tests confirmed Phillips was the father, the court papers state.

Phillips was ordered to pay about $800 a month in child support, said Irons’ attorney, Enrico Mirabelli.

Irons responded that her alleged actions weren’t “truly extreme and outrageous” and that Phillips’ pain wasn’t bad enough to merit a lawsuit. The circuit court agreed and dismissed Phillips’ lawsuit in 2003.

But the higher court ruled that, if Phillips’ story is true, Irons “deceitfully engaged in sexual acts, which no reasonable person would expect could result in pregnancy, to use plaintiff’s sperm in an unorthodox, unanticipated manner yielding extreme consequences.”

The judges backed the lower court decision to dismiss the fraud and theft claims, agreeing with Irons that she didn’t steal the sperm.

“She asserts that when plaintiff 'delivered' his sperm, it was a gift — an absolute and irrevocable transfer of title to property from a donor to a donee,” the decision said. “There was no agreement that the original deposit would be returned upon request.”

Seriously I tried giving away my sperm for years with little success. I'm certainly not going to turn around and make theft or fraud accusations. Use it as toothpaste, crazy glue or make yourself a baby. Once I'm done with it I don't care.

The weather office is advising people in Southern Ontario to be prepared to cancel travel plans, as heavy snowfall and blowing snow will likely produce whiteout conditions and make for extremely hazardous driving conditions.

Immigration officer puts wife on terror no -ly list so she can't come home


An immigration officer put his own wife on a terrorist watch list – ­so she could not get home from a trip to Pakistan. The officer was so sick of his partner that when she was visiting family overseas he added her name to the register of people banned from flights into the UK. When she went to the airport to get her return flight back, officials told her she could not board the plane and did not ­explain why.

She called her husband, who ­promised to look into it – but left her stuck in Pakistan for three years. He was sacked after bosses found out about his antics. An immigration source said: “A lot of people may dislike their other halves but to do this takes it to the next level. Needless to say she was confused when she got to the airport as she had never been involved in anything criminal or terrorist related.

She obviously thought her husband, being an immigration officer, would be able to find out what was going on. Little did she know it was him who had put her on the list. By all accounts he then had the time of his life.” The officer worked with a unit that puts terror and criminal suspects on the watch list of people “not conducive to the public good”. He simply had to log on to a computer database to add his wife as a ­potential suspect.

The officer was caught out when bosses vetted him after he went for a promotion that required him to have a higher level of security clearance. They realised his wife was on the watch list and asked him for an explanation. ­He had no choice but to confess what he had done – and was fired. The immigration source added: “He may have lost his job but he is bit of a legend in immigration circles. It will be talked about for years as the officer who hated his wife so much he put her on a watch list.”

I'm not suggesting I condone this type of action but you have to give him full points for creativity. I'm sure he felt that the 3 years of peace was worth getting fired over.

Toxic Waste candy happens to be toxic



An Indiana company that recently recalled some of its Toxic Waste brand candy have discovered more lead in the product. As a result, Circle City Marketing and Distributing, doing business as Candy Dynamics, is now recalling all of its Toxic Waste brand sour candies labelled as Nuclear Sludge, and discontinuing the sale of the products in the United States. The candy is imported from Pakistan.

In a news release the company said further testing indicates that some of its smaller sized products also contain elevated levels of lead (0.101 to .311 parts per million; the US regulated tolerance level is 0.1 ppm). Ingesting lead can cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women. The company says it has now taken all of its candy labelled as "Nuclear Sludge" off the market.

Who cut the cheese?

Breaking wind is set to be made a crime in an African country. The government of Malawi plan to punish persistent offenders 'who foul the air' in a bid to 'mould responsible and disciplined citizens.'

But locals fear that pinning responsibility on the crime will be difficult - and may lead to miscarriages of justice as 'criminals' attempt to blame others for their offence. One Malawian told the website Africanews.com: 'My goodness. What happens in a public place where a group is gathered. Do they lock up half a minibus?



'And how about at meetings where it is difficult to pinpoint 'culprits'? Children will openly deny having passed bad air and point at an elder. Culturally, this is very embarrassing,' she said.

Another said: 'We have serious issues affecting Malawians today. I do not know how fouling the air should take priority over regulating Chinese investments which do not employ locals, serious graft amongst legislators, especially those in the ruling party, and many more.' The crime will be enforceable in a new 'Local Court' system which will also have powers to punish a range of other crimes in the bill set to be debated in the country's parliament.
