Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Britons 'swear 14 times a day on average'
Almost nine out of ten people in Britain utter expletives every day, while just eight per cent are offended by swearing "in an adult context", it found.
The survey, which questioned 2,319 people, found that men swear more often than women, with 90 per cent of men using expletives on a daily basis compared with 83 per cent of women.
A total of 78 per cent of respondents admitted to regularly swearing for no reason, while 98 per cent said they had sworn while angry in the past.
The survey found that swearing was more tolerated by younger people. While 94 per cent of people between the ages of 18 and 30 agree that bad language is not a problem, 79 per cent of people between 50 and 60 felt the same.
This is just another way "BIG BROTHER" keeps attract of you.
DNA evidence from Washington rape case links suspect to Waterloo attack
A 34-year-old Everett Washington man faces another rape allegation after DNA from a Washington trial linked him to an Iowa rape.
A Snohomish County jury returned a guilty verdict Thursday against Larry Baker for raping a 17-year-old girl at knifepoint. Baker also faces a rape allegation in Waterloo because DNA evidence in the Everett rape links Baker to an unsolved rape in Iowa. He could face 12 years in prison when he is sentenced.
