I have decided to end Small Bits & Pieces

I started blogging while I was alone and depressed.
My younger brother was away and I wasn’t talking to my older brother.
Things has changed I am talking again with my older brother and my younger brother is back home.
So to make a long story short it has been fun doing Small Bits & Pieces.
I want to thank everyone that read and commented.
I don't have any plans for the site except to leave it active.

A drunk went into cop shop with a kilo of explosives
A drunken man carrying 1.1 kilos of explosives showed up at a police station in Saalfelden, Salzburg, on Tuesday night demanding to speak to officers and ‘spill the beans’.
The 25-year-old told startled cops he would "name names" and tell them where more of the explosive, an industrial product called "Gelatine-Donarit," was stashed if they revoked a small fine recently given to him for violation of an administrative regulation.
Following the man’s confession police and weapons experts raided the apartment of a 37-year-old man where they found 20 kilos of the explosive.
Police ruled out the likelihood the two were planning an act of terrorism saying they had probably stolen the explosive to sell it and make some money.

Clamper van got clamped and towed... priceless!

For many motorists, these pictures of a prolific wheel-clamping firm’s van being clamped for having no road tax will be regarded as poetic justice.
An employee of Southend-based LBS Enforcement, which has demanded substantial payment from hapless motorists across the region, got a taste of their own medicine.
Southend Council spotted the car and swooped. The vehicle was clamped, towed away and impounded.
As it happened, an LBS tow truck arrived on the scene...seemingly just too late to save its own vehicle.

Baby born with tail

Surgeons in China have operated to remove a five inch tail from a four-month-old baby girl.
The little girl, called Hong Hong, was born with the tail but it had since doubled in size.
Her father, Hou, of Lixing town in eastern China's Anhui province, said he had been "shocked" to see the tail at birth.
"I wanted to cut it off when she was born, but doctors suggested we wait some time, as a newborn is too weak to take such a surgery," he said.
He checked the tail each day, hoping it would get smaller but instead it just "grew bigger and bigger", he added.
Doctors at the Anhui Provincial Children's Hospital said they had been surprised by the case.
"It's very rare, about one in a million. We have never seen anything like this before," said Dr Sun Jun.
X-rays had shown that the tail was connected to a fatty tumor within the spinal column.

11-year-old buys beach front mansions worth a pricey $44,000,000
Even by the standards of a city that celebrates extravagance, it was a spectacular shopping spree: In just two weeks an 11-year-old boy from Azerbaijan became the owner of nine waterfront mansions.
The total price tag: about $44 million -- or roughly 10,000 years' worth of salary for the average citizen of Azerbaijan. But the preteen who owns a big chunk of some of Dubai's priciest real estate seems to be anything but average.
His name, according to Dubai Land Department records, is Heydar Aliyev, which just happens to be the same name as that of the son of Azerbaijan's president, Ilham Aliyev. The owner's date of birth, listed in property records, is also the same as that of the president's son.

Woman assaults deputy with breast milk

An Owensboro woman is in trouble after officers say she used a rather unusual technique to assault a jailer.
According to the Daviess County, Kentucky, Detention Center, Toni Tramel was picked up Thursday on charges of public intoxication.
As part of the process to book her into the jail, Tramel was sent into a room with a female jailer to change from her street clothes to jail clothes.
The jailer says while the inmate was changing, Tramel took off her bra and squeezed her breast, causing a stream of milk to hit the jailer in the face and the neck.
A release from the jail says the officer was able to "decontaminate herself" and "clean the bio-hazard off her."
Tramel now faces charges of assault on a police officer.

The officer arrested the man, cited him for theft and then released him.

Navy Captain Demoted After Warship Drag Race Surfaced

A Navy captain was demoted because she berated and assaulted her crew, not because she led her guided missile cruiser on a drag-race with another U.S. warship in the Pacific, an investigation shows.

Pawned computer leads to child porn arrest

A man who lost his computer in a home burglary has been arrested after the laptop surfaced at a local pawn shop with several images of child pornography on its hard drive.
Police detectives received a call from a worker at Cash American Pawn Shop in reference to a pawned laptop computer.
The worker had been preparing the laptop for sale, cleaning the hard drive when several images of child pornography were discovered.
Police used the serial numbers on the computer and it matched a computer that had been reported stolen in a burglary at George Lewis's residence.
Police say they went to Lewis's residence to conduct an interview. He asked if they could speak with him away from his girlfriend who was in the room.
According to the report, Lewis then told police he did own the computer in question and he did use it to download images of child pornography but he said the images were part of an investigation that he was conducting. Lewis told investigators he thought he was a Good Samaritan for his work.
Police took Lewis into custody.

A gang that became Britain’s biggest importers of high grade skunk cannabis made so much money that they left tens of thousands of pounds to rot in hidden safes.
The three "directors" of the organized gang made "profits" of up to £200 million, so much that they were unable to spend it fast enough.
In an undercover surveillance operation involving police in Britain, France, Holland and Switzerland the gang were seen driving to Europe with £500,000 stuffed into sports bags.
In Geneva they used the cash to buy expensive designer watches.

Police summoned over forgotten vibrator
A woman phoned police after hearing "suspicious noises" in her apartment. The noise was so loud and strange, even over the telephone, that police decided to send a patrol car around to the "scene of the crime".
"Daringly, and with the occupier's permission, one of the officers opened the drawer of a wardrobe where the noise was coming from.
"Underneath some clothes he found a very personal, battery-operated object which had obviously switched itself on... The tenant's face abruptly changed color."

As authorities nationwide warn motorists of the dangers of driving while texting, Florida Keys law enforcement officers add a new caution: Don't try to shave your privates, either.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a two-vehicle crash Tuesday at Mile Marker 21 on Cudjoe Key was caused by a 37-year-old woman driver who was shaving her bikini area while her ex-husband took the wheel from the passenger seat.
"She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit," Trooper Gary Dunick said. "If I wasn't there, I wouldn't have believed it. About 10 years ago I stopped a guy in the exact same spot ... who had three syringes sticking out of his arm. It was just surreal and I thought, 'Nothing will ever beat this.' Well, this takes it."

Workers lost their jobs for jaywalking

Some of the more than 40 workers in Detroit were given termination papers from a Detroit construction site said they were fired as a consequence of jaywalking.
The workers, who asked not to be identified, said they were contractors at the Marathon Oil Refinery site until bosses handed down termination notices for crossing a public street in front of the site without using the crosswalk,
"I was floored. I was in awe. I couldn't believe I got terminated over it," one worker said.
Marathon officials said the workers had recently been specifically instructed to use the crosswalk during a recent safety meeting.
"The workers were well aware of the need to follow the rules and procedures. Some, of reasons unknown, decided to take their lives in their own hands," spokeswoman Chris Fox said.
The company said the workers were suspended for 90 days, but the contractors said they were terminated and their papers specify they are "not eligible for rehire."
"It could possibly be a way to cut down the workforce and not want to pay unemployment. That would be the best way," one of the workers theorized.

Police in Salisbury, North Carolina said a woman opened a package she believed to be her new computer and discovered 45 pounds of marijuana.

Man gets 7- years for Shoplifting Cheese
A California man was handed seven years in prison for shoplifting a $3.99 piece of cheese.
Prosecutors originally wanted a life sentence for cheese thief Robert Ferguson, under the state's "three strikes" law.
But they dropped the bid after a psychological report convinced them life in jail was not warranted for the crime.
Ferguson holds 13 prior convictions and spent 22 of the last 27 years behind bars.
In 1994 he escaped a previous "three strikes" sentence.
Ferguson's lawyer Monica Brushia said the most serious of the charges occurred when he was a teen more than 30 years ago and that the petty charges did not deserve a prison sentence.
"We're talking about a pack of cheese," she said.

A Springfield man was indicted on several charges after he carved his name onto his girlfriend’s chest.

According to Springfield Police Division records, Welliver told his 31-year-old then-girlfriend that he did not like the tattoo that she had on her buttocks. He then grabbed a meat cleaver from under the bed and threatened to cut the tattoo off if she didn’t let him carve his name on her chest.
The woman told police that he then sat on her, used a blue pocket knife with a razor blade on the end and carved “I Luv Mike Welliver” on the upper part of her breast. She told police she did not fight him because of the knife and meat cleaver and because of his size.

Man arrested for making fake prescription pills

A 68-year-old man was arrested for manufacturing imitation drugs after a witness alleged that the man traded the drugs for sex, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
A man told police that he received 10 mg Percocet pills from Paul Francis Miller, who had asked him for sex in exchange for the drugs, according to the report. The witness told law enforcement that he was also given imitation pills that were made to look like Percocet.
Miller, who is listed as disabled, told law enforcement that he had never given anyone his prescription meds, but admitted that he made imitation pills in his bathroom, the report said. It took him several tries to make pills that looked legitimate.
Miller said he makes a paste out of aspirin, caffeine tablets, a trace of Tylenol and calcium, according to the report. He sets up an indoor grill in his bathroom and creates a wax mold for the pills.
He uses an actual Percocet to stamp the fake pills as they are drying. The man also carves a "10" on one side of the pill, according to the report.
Miller willingly provided police with all the evidence he used to manufacture the fake Percocet. Investigators concluded the pills could be mistaken for actual Percocet.
Miller was charged with manufacturing and distributing imitation drugs, a third degree felony.

Couple mistakenly receives $120,000 worth of marijuana
A Capitol Hill couple got more than they bargained for after what they thought was a routine Fed Ex delivery. The box they received contained $120,000 worth of pot.
Melanie Sloan knows a scam when she sees it. She's a former prosecutor and works for the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, so when a big package was dropped on her porch Monday evening, something didn't seem right.
So they decided to open it. Inside the box was another box wrapped with insulation.
"It's layer upon layer of tightly wrapped plastic wrap. And it looks like there is dirt on the inside of that. So my husband pokes through the plastic wrap and touches it and he said it's not dirt its coffee grounds. Then I did know what it was. I knew it would be drugs," says Sloan.
Turns out it was 35 pounds of marijuana or the equivalent of $120,000 worth of pot.
Man Trying To Get Unemployment
A man spent so much time on hold with a state unemployment agency trying to claim his benefits that he racked up a $700 cell phone bill.
Ernie Sanchez called the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions, a government-run unemployment relief agency over a thousand times trying to get his unemployment money to cover his basic needs, but could not seem to get through. Now, he has to use almost all of the benefits to pay his Verizon bill. "It's almost the same amount for two weeks of benefits that I was trying to get," Sanchez said.
"The bill shows Sanchez made 1,114 calls to the unemployment office in one month. Some days, it took hundreds of calls to get through -- each call costing $0.45. When he would get through, he says he would be put on hold. One time, he was on hold for almost 3 1/2 hours." That one phone call cost Sanchez nearly $100.
GID girl able to attend school as boy
A teenager from Kagoshima diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID) has been allowed to attend her school as a boy from April.
The 13-year-old girl, who has felt uncomfortable with her gender since around 2 years old, will attend her public junior high school in Kagoshima as a boy from the new school year.
According to the 13-year-old's mother and her school, the student complained of sickness when she wore a sailor-style school uniform and refused to go to school for many days. After her parents consulted with school officials in July last year, she was allowed to commute to school in a gym uniform.
Furthermore, the school agreed to switch the 13-year-old's gender classification in her class register and allow her to attend in a boy's uniform after she was diagnosed with GID on Feb. 20. The school is also looking into letting her use a women's bathroom for teachers and school staff and a separate room for changing her clothes.

Tampa man jailed on charge of wearing illegal clown mask
An 18-year-old Tampa man was charged with wearing a clown mask on a public road.
Deputies say Matthew David Lopez, was seen with two other people walking.
What caught a deputy's attention was Lopez's masked face with a bright red-and-orange wig, according to an arrest affidavit.
The deputy followed the group in an unmarked car as the group walked west through a slightly wooded path behind several business offices.
Lopez was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of wearing a mask or hood on a public road after the age of 16 and resisting arrest without violence.

An angry husband is facing charges after using a backhoe to smash dozens of cars owned by a company that stages demolition derbies.
"He believed somebody at that business was having an affair with his wife," Wayne County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Robert Hetzke said. "He and his wife were going through some marital issues."
This time police say he took out his anger on 30 demolition derby cars.
"The demolition derby part of it was different," Hetzke said. "The number of vehicles was definitely different than the normal domestic dispute."
The damage here is pretty impressive.
Police say Fagner took a backhoe and smashed down most of the roofs on most of the cars.
On one he went a little bit further when he took the backhoe and flipped the car altogether.
Fagner is accused of causing about $40,000 in damage.

"Escape from Freedom"
A convict in the Netherlands has escaped from prison after tunneling out with a spoon. Her secret tunnel began in a cellar and was concealed by a removable hatch.
A convict in the Netherlands has succeeded in breaking out of prison with an escape worthy of the movies: She tunneled her way out -- with a spoon.
The public prosecutor's office confirmed Tuesday that the 35-year-old female prisoner had escaped through a tunnel from a prison in Breda in the southern Netherlands.
The spectacular prison break was made possible because the convict was no longer housed in a regular cell, but in a separate building on the grounds of the detention center where long-term inmates are prepared for their release and are given more freedom.

Doctors dismissed her cancer as 'growing pains' four times

A teenage cheerleader had to have her leg amputated after doctors missed her cancer four times - telling her it was 'growing pains'.
Shannon Corr, 15, repeatedly visited GPs for over a two-month period complaining of agonizing pains in her right knee and shin that left her struggling to walk.
But doctors told her she was suffering from growing pains and told her to go home and rest.
After GPs refused to refer Shannon to hospital, her desperate mother Jeannetta Swift, 44, took her to A&E and pretended she had fallen over so she could be fully examined.
Doctors immediately spotted a problem, but by the time the rare bone cancer osteosarcoma was diagnosed it had spread to the soft tissue of Shannon's leg and surgeons were forced to amputate.

On the run, the lingerie model who heads an cocaine-smuggling cartel
A lingerie model is believed to be the mastermind behind an all-women drug gang that smuggles cocaine into Britain.
An international arrest warrant has been issued for Angie Sanselmente Valencia, 30, who is said to only hire glamour models to transport the drugs from South America to Europe.
It's believed that Colombian-born Valencia had been seeing a Mexican drug lord known as 'The Monster' but split with him at the end of last year to form her own cocaine-smuggling gang.
'No-go': Police will not retrieve stolen van because who has it
When police visited Christopher Sims after his van was stolen, they had good news and bad news.
The good news was that they had a pretty good idea of the vehicle's new location.
But the bad news was that this location, a travellers' caravan site, was considered a 'no-go area' which the police would be ill-advised to visit because of the strong criminal element who lived there.
Mr Sims, 46, was initially pleased by the police response when they visited him the day after his white van was taken from outside his house.
But his view changed somewhat when they told him they had an idea who might have taken it but could not take any action.
He said: 'They said they were sympathetic but said that because of the situation they couldn't risk putting officers' lives at risk.
'They were telling me they knew where the van could be but they weren't prepared to go in and find it.
South Korea opens prison just for foreign convicts
Foreigners get own prison - and menu - in South Korea
South Korea has opened what officials say is the world's first purpose-built prison for foreign convicts. The prison offers Western food and satellite TV programs in English, Chinese, Russian and Arabic.
The number of foreigners in South Korean jails has more than doubled in the past four years to about 1,500.
The prison's director said the inmates would still be able to pursue the "Korean dream" that had led them to the country in the first place.
The prison is about 100km (62 miles) south of the capital, Seoul, in Cheonan. Inmates are given classes in Korean culture but can also view satellite TV from around the world and eat non-Korean meals. A number of the guards are fluent in English, Russian or Chinese.

I’m Too Young
A Florida man says the state is trying to force him to pay child support for a child who was born when he was 7 years old.
Rusty Cole, a National Guardsman from Port Orange, Fla., said his tax return was delayed by the state because officials told him he owes support payments for a child born in 1995 -- despite the fact that Cole was born in late 1987.
Man complains to cops about his hash buy
Police in Sweden said a man walked into a local precinct to complain about the quality of hashish he had purchased from a dealer.
Eslov police said the 26-year-old man told police he was a frequent user of marijuana and its derivatives, including hash, but the latest batch of hash he purchased sent him on a bad trip that made him feel like his TV was talking to him and his girlfriend was turning into a dolphin.
Police said it was unclear whether the man, who brought a small amount of the hash in for testing, will face possession charges. Possession of marijuana and its derivatives in small amounts is an offense usually punished with a small fine.

Scientist says, “People learn more after a nap”
Psychologists say an afternoon nap after lunch improves people's learning capacity
Psychologists say sleep clears the brain's short term memory and makes space for new facts to be remembered
People who nodded off for an hour after lunch performed better in learning tests than those who stayed awake all afternoon, the scientists found.
A study of students revealed that their brains were refreshed by napping only if they entered what is called stage 2 non-REM sleep, which takes place between deep sleep and the dream state, known as REM or rapid eye movement sleep.
Man did a B&E at a German Prison to have sex with his girlfriend
A loved-up burglar who broke in to prison night after night for sex with his girlfriend is now facing a permanent stretch himself.
Daniele Eberhardt, 33, scaled a ten-foot fence, dodged surveillance cameras and used a skeleton key made from a spoon to break into the low-security jail in the British Army garrison town of Bielefeld, Germany.
For nearly a month the other female jailbirds were driven to distraction by the passionate moans coming from cell 13 in Detention House C7 of the jail for petty thieves, drug criminals and benefit fraudsters.
It got so bad that the convicts broke the unwritten law of the underworld and told guards about the couple's illicit trysts.
Friedhel Sanker, deputy governor of the prison, said: 'Some of the other women felt that their sleep was being disturbed, while others feared that the man might try to come and visit them, too.
'They were going at it quite energetically, apparently."
'It was like listening to a bad porno movie,' one female inmate said.

Man dies after 10 calls to 911 over two days
In his first call to 911, Curtis Mitchell sounded calm, explaining to dispatchers that his "entire stomach is in pain."
By the time his longtime girlfriend made a 10th call nearly 30 hours later, she was frantic. He wasn't breathing. He was cold to the touch.
"Oh God, oh God," Sharon Edge sobbed to dispatchers. "I've been trying to get an ambulance over here for two days."
Paramedics arrived at their Hazelwood home as Ms. Edge tried to resuscitate the 50-year-old, but it was too late.
"I sat up here with him, watching him die," Ms. Edge said, after city officials apologized to her and pledged immediate changes in emergency response after Mr. Mitchell's death on Feb. 7. "They didn't do their jobs like they were supposed to."
Woman’s $1,600 water bill is correct
A Minneapolis woman has received a $1,600 water bill, a bill the city believes is accurate even though it's 20 times the woman's usual bill. Erica Kocur said her bill is generally $70 to $80 per month. She said her "heart just dropped" when she got her latest bill. The city said she must have a running toilet or dripping faucet.
But they billed her for using almost 200,000 gallons of water. That's three times the volume of her entire home. A shower would have to run nonstop for almost two months to use that much water.
The city's director of treasury is LeeAnn Stagg. She said the city believes the bill is accurate, but the city will check Kocur's meter one more time.
Hired, fired and arrested by the police all in the same afternoon.
23-year-old John Yarrington from Falmouth resident accomplished the dubious feat Tuesday, when the police agreed to make him a confidential drug informant. But less than 10 minutes after participating in a controlled hand-to-hand drug purchase from an East Falmouth dealer, Yarrington used his $100 police payment to buy drugs for himself.
The only problem was Yarrington returned to the scene of the crime and allegedly bought heroin from the same dealer, who was still under police surveillance.
"It's a case of the dumb get dumber," Falmouth police Detective Christopher Bartolomei said.
Pediatricians call for a choke-proof hot dog
Nutritionists have long warned of the perils of hot dogs: fat, sodium and preservatives to name a few.
Now, the American Academy of Pediatrics wants foods like hot dogs to come with a warning label — not because of their nutritional risks but because they pose a choking hazard to babies and children.
Better yet, the academy would like to see foods such as hot dogs "redesigned" so their size, shape and texture make them less likely to lodge in a youngster's throat.
Gun safety Instructor Shoots Student During Gun Safety Class
A gun safety class attendee in Orlando, Fla., was accidentally shot in the foot by his instructor, police reported.

Instructor Michael Phillips could not be reached for comment, but another National Rifle Association instructor said it is forbidden to take ammunition to classes.
The event was not sponsored by the church, which offered one of its meeting rooms to the group after some of its members made a request, the spokeswoman said.
"We won't be having anything like that in our church in the future," she added.
