    What’s going on with this mugshot? Ashley Stabler, 23, was detained by police after allegedly driving without insurance or proper plates and having a suspended licence. But we don’t know why her mouth is opened wide like that – though we do have a few suggestions: 1. She was at a new state-of-the-art prison/dentist combo facility, and was asked to say ‘ah’ 2. She’s playing charades and describing the film Scream 3. She and one of the officers are taking turns throwing sweets into each other’s mouths 4. She’s singing Puccini’s Nessun Dorma 5. Her mother is saying ‘Here comes...

    Got a plan for what you’d do if a zombie outbreak led to the total collapse of civilisation?Bad news – you are almost certainly doing it wrong.Simply hiding inside buildings – or God forbid, running around smashing in zombie skulls with a baseball bat – is a terrible idea, Cornell University researchers revealed after running the first ‘complete’ mathematical simulation.The best way to survive is actually to run for country areas – in particular sparsely populated mountains (the researchers give the example of the Rockies, but the Cairngorms ought to do it).By all means ignore the hordes of the undead and...

    An epidemic of federal employees watching pornography on government computers during work hours has gotten so out of control that legislation has been introduced in Congress to contain the embarrassing crisis. Porn has for years been part of the job at some government agencies and in fact a number of federal audits have long documented the enraging details of how our tax dollars are being wasted. Judicial Watch has also reported on this for years, especially the porn crisis at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the agency charged with policing the nation’s financial industry.

    A Valentine's Day cinema screening of Fifty Shades of Grey ended in chaos when three women were arrested for attacking a man. Witnesses claim the bust-up started after the victim asked the "worse for the wear" women to quieten down during a viewing on Saturday evening. Police then rushed to Grosvenor Cinema in Glasgow's west end where they arrested three women. Cinema visitors also claimed the man had been glassed and that staff were forced to wipe blood from seats before the next screening of the film.

Timothy Withrow, who sustained the wound at this Port Willunga home south of Adelaide in February 2014, used a sewing needle and fishing line to stitch himself up for fear the cut could become infected. He had earlier phoned the Noarlunga Hospital and Flinders Medical Centre, only to be told they were extremely busy and would be unable to treat his gaping wound for more than 10 hours. Mr Withrow...

    A telecoms sales manager sent his staff a text message urging them to ‘blow away’ the competition at a trade show – and the Muslim man ended up in jail. Quebec sales chief Saad Allami, 41, said the message was intended to pump up his staff – but it led to a team of police officers storming his home and telling Allami’s wife he was a terrorist. Allami is now suing the Quebec police force for £65,000. He says he was arrested three hours after sending the message, while a squad of police officers conducted an ‘intrusive’ search of his...

The Chippewa Township woman had been arrested that night, Jan. 14, for allegedly stealing earrings from a Kohl's department store.

    In December, Pope Francis got the attention of pet owners everywhere when he was quoted as saying, “Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures.” Alas, media outlets, including The New York Times, confused the remarks and the circumstances under which they were made. The pope had actually made a broader comment about heaven during an event in November. The quotation itself was reportedly taken from remarks made years ago by Pope Paul VI.Still, the attention led to renewed interest in a longstanding theological discussion about pets and the afterlife.
