    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A police interrogation of a Kansas City man charged with drug and gun offenses ended prematurely when an investigator was driven from the room by the suspect's excessive flatulence. A detective reported that when asked for his address, 24-year-old Sean Sykes Jr. "leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering."

    Asking for opinions here....I have seen video from a satellite dish of the anniversary rally in DC...Al Charlatan and Jesse Jagmo are heading up what purports to be a time of commemoration of MLK's "I have a dream" speech..... Anyway, the thing kicks off today, and I am looking at a live pic of the mall in front of the Lincoln Memorial....and folks, it doesn't even look half full. I AM ONLY SEEING ONE ANGLE, so I may be wrong, but from that viewpoint it looks like the 9/12 rally of Tea Partiers WAS MUCH BIGGER than this crowd of...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) -- President Barack Obama has a Sin City problem that won't go away. Obama is counting on Nevada's support for reelection next year. He easily won the Las Vegas Valley in 2008 and will probably win the largely Democratic, urban center again next year.

    HONG KONG - Ships belching toxic fumes from diesel fuel contribute to the deaths of tens of thousands of people in Europe, Asia and the United States each year, claims a U.S. report released this week. As many as 60,000 people living in coastal communities along major shipping routes died from lung and heart complaints as a result of high sulfate emissions from ships in 2002, according to the study released Wednesday by the American Chemical Society. With international maritime trade on the rise and little regulation of ship emissions, that death toll could rise to as many as 82,000...

The reason I'm posting these pictures is due to inspiration (fortunately not inhalation) of a picture of this place in the "Volcanoes 4 (Hot Springs and Fumaroles)" section of PhotoVolcanica.

    KENNER, La. - A Louisiana congressman is calling for hearings on the government's response to formaldehyde fumes in trailers provided to storm victims by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Earlier this month, the agency dismissed findings by environmentalists that the trailers pose serious health risks from the known carcinogen. The agency said the fumes could be reduced by opening vents and windows, a strategy deemed unacceptable by Rep. Bobby Jindal (news, bio, voting record) in light of the region's heat and humidity. Jindal, a Republican widely expected to run for governor in the fall, sent a letter to House leadership...

    OK, my father was watching my kids today while I was having surgery. about an hour ago I went down stairs to make sure the doors were looked and was immitadly struck by noxus fumes. As it turns out my Dad was watching my kids ride their bikes today and moved a gas can to get out a camping chair. After he was done, he tossed the chair back into the garage and unknowingly knocked over a gallon sized can of gasoline to the floor. If I remember correctly, the last time I mowed the yard I knew I was...

    Modesto, California (AHN) - A big rig tanker crashed on near State Route 99 south of Ceres this morning, releasing hazardous fumes and forcing evacuations. The California Highway Patrol and emergency crews were called to the scene just before noon. The tanker careened off of the highway into the backyard of a house, with the cab barely missing the back of the home. There are reports it is difficult to breathe in the area because of fumes emanating from the tanker, which was carrying formic acid. Formic acid is a combustible product derived from alternative fuels combined with acid. It...

    Sacramento -- A painting of the United States sinking into a toilet, formerly on display in the cafeteria of the state Department of Justice, has been moved by Attorney General Bill Lockyer to his 17th floor office, where public access is limited. The artist who created the piece, Stephen Pearcy, said Lockyer's decision to move the painting violated his First Amendment right to political speech. The painting's inclusion in a larger exhibit displayed in the state building sparked protests from some conservatives and served as fodder for talk radio shows. "His office is not public. The decision to move it...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A German man has canned the noxious-smelling exhaust fumes of East Germany's cult Trabant car and is doing a brisk trade selling the scent to those nostalgic for the former Communist state. "The smell is something very special and scarce nowadays," said Thorsten Jahn, whose cans of "Trabi" exhaust sell online for 3.98 euros ($4.81). "I wanted to preserve the past in an original way." Fifteen years since reunification, nostalgia for East Germany has been running strong as rosy memories of the communist state's social safety nets, holiday camps and quaint consumer products like the tiny, box-like...

    WASHINGTON - Pollution from electrical generators, compressors, agricultural pumps and other equipment powered by stationary diesel engines would drop by as much as 90 percent under a government proposal, The Associated Press has learned. Beginning in 2007, companies would have to produce cleaner-burning diesel engines for use in such equipment. Operators would have to start using lower sulfur fuel at that time and switch to even better grades by 2011. The Environmental Protection Agency planned to make the proposal public on Thursday. It stems from a court agreement with Environmental Defense, a New York-based advocacy group that sued in federal...

    Secret smoker, 14, chokes on fabric deodorant fumes By Richard Savill (Filed: 10/05/2005) A schoolgirl has died after spraying herself with a fabric deodorant in the bathroom of her family home to hide the smell of cigarettes. Helen Coffey, 14, who had been smoking in the bathroom, collapsed as she used a can of Deofab to spray her clothes. She died a week later in hospital. Her family said the aerosol spray in the confined space had made her choke and caused a haemorrhage in her throat. Her mother, Agnes, 46, said: "She sprayed it all over her clothes, the...

    Dec 29, 2004 8:23 am US/Central WINDBER, Pa. (AP) Somerset County authorities say a stopped up toilet led to a man’s death, when he unwisely mixed two common chemicals trying to unclog it. Sixty-eight-year-old James Battiste of Windber died Monday. Tuesday, County Coroner Wallace Miller announced Battiste’s cause of death: chlorine gas poisoning. Authorities say Battiste mixed Liquid-Plumr and another over the counter product, The Works, into the toilet bowl. The intense fumes resulted causing the man to call nine-one-one, but he apparently lost consciousness before he could tell dispatchers what was wrong. Police responded quickly and say they were...
