Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Raccoon bit off man's manhood
A feisty raccoon has bitten off a man’s penis as he was trying to rape the animal.
Alexander Kirilov, 44, was on a drunken weekend with pals when he leapt on the terrified – but toothy – fur ball.
"When I saw the raccoon I thought I’d have some fun," he told stunned casualty surgeons in Moscow.
Now Russian plastic surgeons are trying to restore his mangled manhood.
"He’s been told they can get things working again but they can’t sew back on what the raccoon bit off," said a pal of his.
"That’s gone forever so there isn’t going to be much for them to work with."
People do the dumbest things wnen drinking.
Now he will never know what he made missed out on.
Laundry thief is just a cat burglar
He stalks the night preying on undies left unsuspectingly on clothes lines and in laundry baskets.
Lithe and agile, he leaps fences to get his wily paws on socks, swimmers, shirts, dresses - even dolls.
But it is no pervert at the center of Mosman's missing panties mystery.
After months of curiosity and clothes disappearing from across the suburb, the cat burglar has been revealed as, well, a cat.
His name is Cisco, a six-year-old Tonkinese cat owned by Dalton Rd resident Peter Hand.
"It just started a few months ago, Cisco kept bringing in all manner of items," Mr Hand said.
"People were wondering where their things were getting to."
Besides undies, there have been cleaning mitts, garden gloves, a pin cushion and children's toys.
The blue-eyed cat drags the booty down a side path, through the cat door and up to Mr Hand's bedroom. But now the secret is out.
"I've been trying to find the owners. One lady asked if I had her swimmers," real estate buyers agent Mr Hand said. "She was delighted to get them back."
Driver on a Drip
A speeding driver stopped by police was wearing hospital robes and had an IV drip in his arm.
Guang Wang was attached to a bag of antibiotics dangling from the car’s rear view mirror.
He told shocked cops he had fled hospital after getting fed up waiting to complete his treatment.
So he jumped out of bed on a ward and sneaked out to the car park to drive home in Wuxi, eastern China.
Police fined him £20 for speeding and drove him back to the hospital to complete his treatment.
Octuplets? No, that's a litter!
8 Babies Born to Stunned California Parents
Doctors in Bellflower California methodically delivered a mother's seven babies, five boys and two girls, just as they had repeatedly rehearsed.
Then came the eighth.
The surprising sixth boy and eighth child made Monday's mass birth not just remarkable but historic.
"It is quite easy to miss a baby when you're anticipating seven," said Dr. Harold Henry, chief of maternal and fetal medicine and one of 46 doctors, nurses and assistants who delivered the children by Caesarean section at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center. "Ultrasound doesn't show you everything."
Just five minutes after the first birth, the unexpected eighth baby came out at 10:48 a.m.
"My eyes were wide," Dr. Karen Maples said.
It was just the second live octuplets birth in U.S. history.
