Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Man uses nail clippers in DIY circumcision
A man who gave himself a DIY circumcision using nail clippers was taken to hospital for emergency treatment.
The young man had to be rushed to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. The wound was disinfected to cleanse it before he was given a bed in an observation ward.
"This is something we would advise men never to attempt," a medic said, "The results can be quite horrific and long-lasting and have quite an affect on a man's sexual performance.
"Using a pair of nail clippers must have caused excruciating pain, even if he had had a few drinks beforehand."
Pastor Sentenced for Child Porn on Church Computer
A former Texas pastor who admitted having more than 600 images of child pornography on his church computer has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.
The U.S. attorney's office in Dallas says 36-year-old Steve Richardson was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay.
The former pastor of First United Methodist Church in Royse City pleaded guilty in March to one count of transporting and shipping child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
Prosecutors say Richardson sent a sexually explicit image of a child to an undercover federal agent in Seattle and requested comparable images.
Man tries to end life in bush pit toilet
New Guinean villagers have rescued a man attempting suicide at the bottom of a bush pit toilet, local media reports.
The man told villagers in Kalem, Western Highlands Province, that he wanted to kill himself because all his family members had died.
Naomi Elias got the shock of her life when she entered the toilet last Saturday.
"I heard someone pleading: 'Please forgive me'," she said.
"The pit opening was very narrow, so how he entered the hole and ended up in the pit is unbelievable."
Ms Elias said she first thought it may have been spirits or a sorcery trick and fled the scene in fear.
Residents demolished the toilet and found the man from Nipa village, Southern Highlands Province, lying inside.
Ms Elias ran to the nearby village of Timur to get a local journalist, who in turn took photographs.
Kalem community leader Sak Murumaki said villagers pulled the suicidal man out with sticks and gave him money to return home.
