Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Inmate farted in officer's face before punching him
A mighty rude wind flew in the face of corrections officer Mathew Knowles on May 13. Knowles was three days on the job when inmate Kareem Haskins, 21, farted in his face at the Monroe County Correctional.
During a routine cell search, Knowles patted Haskins down. While Knowles worked down the right leg, Haskins said, "I've been saving this for you," and let one go.
"I said nothing and continued my search," Knowles testified Monday at a preliminary hearing in front of Judge Jolana Krawitz. Knowles claims the gas was a prelude to a punch.
Haskins was charged with aggravated assault after the cell search turned into a scuffle. A videotape of the incident exists but it has not been made public. It will likely be a key piece of evidence in the case, which has been held for court.
The $8.00 Ice For The Perfect Drinks - (Oops Not News)
A Japanese company has introduced a mold that seamlessly creates a perfect sphere, no chipping and shaving required. Simple place a chunk of ice into the metal press and, as it melts, the device will close around the ice forming a ball, which is then released by the flick of a switch.
Spheres of ice are preferred by serious on the rocks drinkers because the reduced surface size means that the ice melts at a slower pace, keeping your drink from getting watery to quickly.

Ice spheres? Not sure weather to be annoyed at the frivolity or enticed by my desire for them.
