    This dubious achievement smashes the previous record of 38-years-without-washing held by 'The World's Smelliest Man', Indian farm worker Kailash Sigh... and you thought the French were bad! Our proud new record-holder is a homeless drifter in the Iranian village of Dejgah, a fetid character who took his last bath in 1954- 'Amou Hadji'. He is said to have suffered some psychological trauma in his youth, the reaction to which being a vow to live the rest of his life in solitude. He consistently refuses offers of help from others, and won't even take clean drinking water. Amou -which is a term of affection...

Hand washing, too, is ‘not always a priority for the French,’ said pollster BVA, which was commissioned to carry out the...

    Florida bans 'bath salt' drugs after violent outburstsBy Alexia Campbell and Aaron Deslatte, Sun Sentinel 7:26 p.m. EST, January 26, 2011 TALLAHASSEE — Disturbing reports of violent drug users "with superhuman strength," pushed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Wednesday to ban drugs sold as "bath salts." Florida is the second state, after Louisiana, to outlaw the so-called fake cocaine. The white powder, sold at gas stations and specialty shops around the state, has sent dozens of users to emergency rooms and mental hospitals in recent months, according to authorities. **SNIP** "To put it in perspective, that's right up there...
  • Bath salts misused as 'fake cocaine' send Florida users to hospitals

    Orlando Sentinel ^ | Alexia Campbell, Sun Sentinel
    The half-gram bottle of bath salts promises an "invigorating" and "energizing" experience. But to local and federal authorities, it's another dangerous product misused as fake cocaine that's sending youths to emergency rooms and mental hospitals in Florida and across the country. As federal officials prepare to ban synthetic marijuana, specialty shops and convenience stores across Florida have started stocking up on bottles of bath salts. Louisiana and Florida authorities have linked these bath salts to at least two suicides in Louisiana, 21 calls to Florida poison control centers and dozens of hospital visits in Central and South Florida in the...

    Times of Londonium ^ | November 14, 2009 | Simon de Bruxelles
    For two millennia the Great Drain has carried the mineral-rich waters of Britain's only hot spring from the Roman Bath in Bath to the nearby River Avon. The drain runs for nearly half a mile under the city but although parts of it are large enough for a man to walk through, it has never been fully explored. Archaeologists will have their first opportunity to get inside the previously inaccessible sections of the Great Drain this month when engineers open it up for repairs. A stretch of drain built long after the Romans is causing the difficulties. The extension was...

    A Burger King worker in Xenia, Ohio, took a bath in the restaurant's kitchen sink. Timothy Tacket, the employee, was fired. He said he did it because it was his 25th birthday and he wanted to do something entertaining. "It's the other people who have been affected by this. I made my own bed, so I'm going to have to lie in it," Tacket said. "But anybody else's lives that are personally affected, I really regret that -- that's not what was the intention. This, it was something that I set out light-hearted and funny, turned into bad." The Burger...

    BATH — Josephine Cushman Vail will lay red tulips on the grave of her little brother today, as she has nearly every year since 1927. Ralph Cushman, then 7, died 80 years ago today, along with 44 other people in what stood for more than 60 years as the largest mass murder in the United States. Vail, 93, said she could just as easily have died with her brother when a disgruntled school board member dynamited the Bath Consolidated School in the quiet, close-knit community 13 miles northeast of Lansing. Vail, then 13, was excused from taking final exams that...

    With all due respect and sympathy to the victims and their families of the Columbine and McDonald's shootings, the Oklahoma bombing, and other mass murders, they were not the worst mass murders of children in the US. On May 18, 1927, 45 people, mostly children, were killed and 58 were injured when disgruntled and demented school board member Andrew Kehoe dynamited the new school building in Bath, Michigan out of revenge over his foreclosed farm due in part to the taxes required to pay for the new school.

Air fresheners and scented oils are being deployed in a bid to banish smells caused by sweaty revellers. Licensed trade chiefs say venues are turning some people away because of poor hygiene, which was covered up before by the smell of cigarette smoke. Kay Bennett, of Edinburgh city centre nightclub Cabaret Voltaire, said: "If you walk into a club with a few hundred people dancing, you notice a smell. It's a combination of...

He fired the president of the phone company, had four people arrested, took other legal action and accused those involved of conspiring with the Israeli foreign intelligence service Mossad, according to the Iranian opposition website Rooz Online. The website says Ahmadinejad, known throughout the world as a hard-liner who has threatened Israel with destruction and questioned the Holocaust, is the target of many barbs among the populace in his country.

    MANILA (Reuters) - Couples in the Philippine capital have been asked to start sharing the tub at bath time as part of a conservation drive. "Start sharing baths with your partner to conserve water," the environment department advised the parched capital's 12 million residents. Unseasonably dry weather has depleted water levels in the main reservoirs supplying the metropolis and officials were meeting on Friday to consider rationing and other measures. Environment Secretary Elisea Gozun warned things could get worse before the monsoon season begins in May and said officials were "sounding the alarm early to avoid a water shortage." As...
