Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Absent minded store owner sells diesel for 59 cents
Diesel fuel was on heavy discount at a rural Wisconsin convenience store - just 59 cents a gallon.
That is, until the owner discovered he had left off the other $3 while changing the price in his computer.
Mohinder Singh estimates 50 to 75 customers took advantage of the mistake at his Lyons Shell Plaza last weekend, costing him more than $4,000.
He says he changed the price about noon Saturday, and it stayed at 59 cents until he arrived at 7 a.m. Sunday and saw a warning light indicating the diesel tank had only 200 gallons left.
Eighteen-year-old Jordan Koster knew something was wrong when he filled his pickup's 30-gallon tank for only $10. He told his father, and his father advised him to make things right.
The teen stopped Monday and paid the full amount.
Sniffer dogs in teenage bedrooms
Retired sniffer dogs that have spent years on police patrol are now working in the private sector in the US - sniffing out teenagers' bedrooms.
Parents can rent a dog and handler for $200 (£125) an hour from Sniff Dogs, a firm operating in New Jersey and Ohio.
The dogs are highly trained and can detect illegal drugs.
The company says the animals can smell marijuana from up to 15 feet away (5m) and residue on clothing from drugs smoked two days earlier.
The dogs will sit when they detect the drugs but they leave the final inspection to the parents.
'Fart gas' link to blood pressure
Hydrogen sulphide is behind the smell of rotten eggs
The gas best known for being used in many stink bombs may also control blood pressure, say US researchers.
Small amounts of hydrogen sulphide - a toxic gas generated by bacteria living in the human gut - are responsible for the foul odor of flatulence.
But it seems the gas is also produced by an enzyme in blood vessels where it relaxes them and lowers blood pressure.
5000 prospective jurors for terror trial
Five thousand people have been summonsed as prospective jurors to hear the upcoming Sydney trial of six men on terrorist-related charges.
The empaneling process will begin on Monday in the NSW Supreme Court at Parramatta, in Sydney's west, before Justice Anthony Whealy. It is expected the 5000 prospective jurors will be dealt with in groups of 1000.
The process is expected to take about five days and will result in 15 jurors being empanelled. The six men have all pleaded not guilty to conspiring to do acts in preparation for a terrorist act or acts. The accused men are Bradley Umar Sariff Baladjam, 31, Khaled Cheikho, 35, Moustafa Cheikho, 31, Mohamed Ali Elomar, 43, Abdul Rakib Hasan, 39, and Mohammed Omar Jamal, 24.
Woman caught with bananas in undies
Customs Officers at Sydney Airport stopped the 56-year-old from the Czech Republic when she arrived from Samoa on Wednesday.
Suspecting she was concealing something on her body, a female officer frisked her and found she was concealing three banana plants in her underpants.
Quarantine officers seized the plants, which Customs say are a threat to Australia's banana industry because they can carry black sigatoka disease, fusarium wilt, or moko disease.
The woman was likely to be issued a court attendance notice when investigations were completed, a Customs spokesman said today.
Penalties for breaching quarantine laws can result in fines of more than $66,000 or 10 years' jail.
Woman arrested for killing virtual husband
A Japanese piano teacher has been arrested for the murder of her virtual husband after an abrupt but messy online divorce.
The 43-year-old from Kyushu province in southern Japan faces a maximum sentence of five years in jail if she is found guilty of killing off her digital partner.
If convicted she could be jailed or fined up to £3,100.

Pizza Delivery Man Shoots Would-Be Robbers
A pizza delivery man who was taking an order to a house in East Texas pulled out a gun and opened fire on two would-be robbers, police said.
One of the alleged robbers was hospitalized after getting shot in the back, Lufkin police said. The Papa John's pizza delivery man, who's licensed to carry a handgun, wasn't hurt.
The shooting was Tuesday night, after the delivery man walked up to a house and rang a doorbell, Lufkin police said. It turned out the house was vacant and two armed men approached him from the side of the house. The delivery man drew a .22 caliber Derringer and fired two shots, and the assailants ran away, police said.
It appears unlikely the delivery man will face any charges since he "was defending himself at the time of the shooting," Lufkin Police Lt. David Young said.

Inmates Sick After Eating Wild Flower for 'Recreational High'
Five Manatee County Florida Jail inmates were hospitalized after ingesting a poisonous flower that can cause a "recreational high," authorities said.
The low-security inmates were clearing overgrowth in Palmetto Wednesday afternoon when they ate a plant called angel's trumpet, officials said. The plant can cause elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, agitation and violent behavior. In some cases, people who ingest the plant can slip into a coma or die.
The inmates were taken to nearby hospitals, and their conditions ranged from mild to serious.
2 charged with disaster relief fraud
The U.S. Attorney’s Office has charged two people from Cedar Rapids with disaster relief fraud in separate indictments.

Jermaine Graham and Kelley Brutsman face charges that they falsely told FEMA they lived in a flood disaster area in June 2008 in order to claim benefits.
Each faces up to 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says their claims were unrelated.
Graham and Brutsman are scheduled to appear in federal court on Oct. 31, which is also the deadline for Iowans to file for FEMA flood relief money.
