We all know that Europeans love them some soccer. But mix that love with alcohol and you get some pretty weird shit:
BERLIN (Reuters) A woman trying to make "manure bombs" using stockings, slipped into a slurry tank and fled the scene naked, German police said Friday.
Two women entered a farm in the northern village of Eberholzen Wednesday evening and started to fill the stockings with manure.
"One of them slipped into the manure tank, right into the cow muck," said a spokesman for local police. "The other one helped her out. We found their clothes in a field. One seems to have run off completely naked, the other in her underwear."
Police said it was unclear what the women had intended to do with the "manure bombs," but added the incident could be linked to victory celebrations surrounding the Euro 2008 semi-finals on Wednesday evening, when Germany beat Turkey 3-2.
"The women can get their clothes back from the local police station -- unwashed," the spokesman added.

I haven’t been in the mood for political blogging, lately… but this is too good to pass up!
(Telegraph) Bill Clinton is so bitter about Barack Obama's victory over his wife Hillary that he has told friends the Democratic nominee will have to beg for his wholehearted support.
Mr Obama is expected to speak to Mr Clinton for the first time since he won the nomination in the next few days, but campaign insiders say that the former president's future campaign role is a "sticking point" in peace talks with Mrs Clinton's aides.
The Telegraph has learned that the former president's rage is still so great that even loyal allies are shocked by his patronising attitude to Mr Obama, and believe that he risks damaging his own reputation by his intransigence.
A senior Democrat who worked for Mr Clinton has revealed that he recently told friends Mr Obama could "kiss my ass" in return for his support.

-All that time felling ashamed. And then paying all that money to get a hard-on. Only to forget the entire thing. Some guys just can’t get a break!
(Medicine Net)The erectile dysfunction drug Levitra is getting a label change noting rare reports of transient global amnesia in men taking the drug.
Transient global amnesia, or TGA, is a brief bout of amnesia, not lasting longer than a day, without causing other problems.
Levitra's label change isn't a warning or a precaution, and it doesn't mean that the drug causes memory problems. The reported cases of transient global amnesia in men taking Levitra may have been spurred by something else, even by sex.
"Sex can trigger TGA," says Harvard neurology professor Louis R. Caplan, MD. He likens TGA to a tape recorder that's not working.
"People otherwise can walk and talk and read and do high-level things, but they're not recording the information, as if their tape recorder is off," Caplan explains.

Last year we were forced to put my dog Ace (from Ace Ventura) to sleep after 13 years of fun, mayhem and love. He was a 90 lb. golden Lab.
When we put him down, I really thought that I would never be able to bring another animal into the house because of the pain after he died. But luckily, as chance would have it, we were offered a puppy by a family friend.
I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. However, that skepticism was short lived.
I have never seen a more beautiful dog in my entire life. And the name just fit. –Maximus. At first we thought that he was a German Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix but it could be half rottweiler.
The little guy is fast and he hops around like a jack rabbit. He is only 4 months old but already his personality is beginning to show. And with dogs, that is the most important thing with me. That is the main reason I don’t like training a dog.

Obstruct a little justice and bam!... banned from the UK.
(Daily Telegraph) Martha Stewart has been refused a visa to Britain because of her criminal convictions for obstructing justice, the Daily Telegraph has learned.
The lifestyle guru, convicted four years ago in the US for obstructing justice, was planning to speak at the Royal Academy and to hold meetings with several figures in the fashion and leisure industry, including Jasper Conran, and was due to travel within the next few days.
The refusal by the UK Border Agency was sent to Ms Stewart, aged 66. A spokesperson for the business magnate said: "Martha loves England and hopes this can be resolved and that she will be able to visit soon."
She added that Ms Stewart has many friends in Britain, which she has visited numerous times.

BLANCHARD, Mich. — BreAnna Helsel escaped serious injury after being struck by lightning while inside her house.
The teenager's good fortune continued the next day, in the form of a winning lottery ticket.
Helsel, 16, was at her home in Blanchard, about 48 miles northeast of Grand Rapids, watching thunderstorms roll by on June 6 when she noticed rain entering an open kitchen window.
"She went to close the window and the lightning came through and hit her," her mother, Linda Johnson, told The Daily News of Greenville. "We think it must have hit the house or something."
Helsel, a student at Montabella High School, struggled to describe the sensation she felt as the electricity passed through her body.
"It felt like when your foot falls asleep," she said.
Helsel said she saw the electricity shoot out of her fingers and into the overhead lights, immediately knocking out the house's power.
At first, the teenager didn't want to be checked out at a hospital, but when she started complaining about a tingling sensation in an arm, she and her mother drove through the rain to get to Spectrum Health Kelsey Hospital in Lakeview.
Helsel was checked out and the only signs of the lightning strike were some darkened fingertips on her right hand and a shaking arm from damaged muscles that will require some therapy. A full recovery is expected.
"Everyone said I'm really lucky," she said.
Hospital employees suggested that Helsel was on such a lucky streak, she should immediately play the lottery. She's too young, so her mother went out the next day and bought a Michigan lottery ticket for her.
"And we won $20," Johnson said, laughing. "What a way to start the summer."

After President Bush launched a war simply to kill innocent Muslims, single-handedly spawned Hurricane Katrina to level the poor black neighborhoods of New Orleans, and went straight for the white residents of Malibu with hellish fires and choking smoke... he has now set his sights on wiping out the working class of Iowa:
(NY Daily News) The streets in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - all 400 blocks of them - were filled with floodwaters and other strange sights: floating Dumpsters and utility poles and sandbags piled in vain.
The cresting Cedar River wreaked widespread havoc Friday on Iowa's second-largest city, forcing the evacuation of 3,000 homes and a downtown hospital while collapsing a railroad bridge.
Houseboats were swept away as the fast-rising river created a lake in downtown Cedar Rapids, where a breach in the levee turned roadways into waterways.
It was the worst Midwest flooding in 15 years, when the Cedar River crested at just over 19 feet - compared with a crest of more than 31 feet yesterday.
The waterlogged sandbags were stacked outside Mercy Medical Center, where 176 patients were transferred out as the waters seeped inside...
Others who failed to heed evacuation warnings were ferried to safety by rescuers in boats, reminiscent on a much smaller scale of the scenes from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Helicopter shots from above Cedar Rapids, a city of 124,000, showed cars disappearing and buildings receding in the rising tide.
City officials said more than 400 city blocks downtown were submerged, with more flooding elsewhere - although details on outlying areas were sketchier.

Okay, I’m not a real big fan of reality TV. However, there is one program on the Fox network that has me hooked like no other. –young girls have their queers with highlights in "American Idol" and I have my ruined marriages and closeted sluts in, The Moment of Truth.
If you haven’t seen the show, let me explain how it works:
Contestants are asked 51 questions by a polygraph technician beforehand. And from those questions, 21 are chosen to be asked on air (the contestants do not know the results of the test). Now, if you can answer every single question truthfully, you win $500,000. But if you lie once you lose everything. However, you can choose to stop at any time and keep what you have already earned.
The show utilizes a pyramid format where the levels of questions become more personal while the amount you can win increases dramatically. If you answer the first 6 correctly you win $10,000. The next 5 questions, you win 25,000. The next 4, you win $100,000… and so on until you hit one last question worth 500 grand.
All you have to do is tell the truth and you win half-a-million dollars.
Anyway, the reason I can’t get enough of the show is because the questions that they ask are so personal, and it gets so intense, that actual life-long relationships have crumbled in a matter of minutes. I mean they go into sexuality, religion and inappropriate behavior at work. Questions like: at your wedding were you still in love with somebody else?; do you regret marrying your husband?; would you cheat on your spouse if you were guaranteed never to get caught?
Keep in mind that they are answering these questions with their entire family not more than 20 feet away, on stage. It is brutal.
I know it's not nice of me to get pleasure out of another person’s pain but some of these people deserve it. For example, you’ll see a woman come in and you can tell automatically that she is a lying slut. But her boyfriend or husband hasn’t the slightest clue. And when the fidelity question pops up and she either admits to cheating or gets caught lying, the guy is totally shocked. –you know the expression, you can never truly know someone? Well, it proves to be true. Because in less than 30 minutes on The Moment of Truth, these families are hit with things that they never imagined.
And to give you a hint of how personal the show gets… not one contestant has won the $500,000. Not one person was willing (or able) to answer the total of 21 questions. No one has even come close. –Watch all the episodes here @ Fox.Com. I guarantee you will be amazed!

"On a stifling July day in 1918, 18,000 officers and soldiers posed as Lady Liberty on the parade grounds at Camp Dodge. According to a July 3, 1986, story in the Fort Dodge Messenger, many men fainted-they were dressed in woolen uniforms-as the temperature neared 105 degrees Farenheit. The photo, taken from the top of a specially constructed tower by a Chicago photography studio, Mole & Thomas, was intended to help promote the sale of war bonds but was never used." (Grover 1987)

Destined to do great things?
(Fox News) A mother who decided to abort her son because he may have inherited a life-threatening kidney condition is overjoyed that he survived the procedure.
Jodie Percival of Nottinghamshire, England, said she and her fiancee made the decision to abort baby Finley when she was eight weeks pregnant.
Percival's first son Thane died of multicystic dysplastic kidneys — which causes cysts to grow on the kidneys of an unborn baby — and her second child Lewis was born with serious kidney damage and currently has just one kidney, the Daily Mail reported.
"I was on the (birth control pill) when I became pregnant," Percival, 25, said. "Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another baby."
A short time after the abortion, Percival felt a fluttering in her stomach. She went to the doctor for a scan and discovered she was 19 weeks pregnant.
