Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Sperm bank denies 'helping hand' rumor
Shanghai Sperm Bank has been forced to issue a statement on its Website to clarify its procedures, after explicit photos circulated on the Internet, claiming to show female nurses helping men to "donate" at the sperm bank.
"These pictures are completely misleading," said Li Jin, a hospital official. "We never have female nurses assisting in sperm collection, which is done by the donor himself, alone in a special room. To protect donor's privacy, no one is allowed to take pictures or shoot videos in the sperm bank."
Dispute Over Urinating Dog
An emergency call that brought two Pittsburgh Police Officers to a home where they were ambushed, and where a third was also killed later during a four-hour siege, was precipitated by a fight between the gunman and his mother over a dog urinating in the house.
The Saturday argument between Margaret and Richard Poplawski escalated to the point that she threatened to kick him out and she called police to do it, according to a 12-page criminal complaint and affidavit filed late Saturday.
When officers Paul Sciullo II and Stephen Mayhle arrived, Margaret Poplawski opened the door and told them to come in and take her 23-year-old son, apparently unaware he was standing behind her with a rifle, the affidavit said. Hearing gunshots, she spun around to see her son with the gun and ran to the basement.
"What the hell have you done?" she shouted.
The mother told police her son had been stockpiling guns and ammunition "because he believed that as a result of economic collapse, the police were no longer able to protect society," the affidavit said.

And the first thing people will be screaming is "BAN ALL GUNS". They never seem to realize that some unbalanced person is behind the gun pulling the trigger. Sigh....
