How Safe Is Your URL?

This is an interesting story. Apparently, some guy started a blog through Blogspot and chose "" for the URL.

So the organization "Jews For Jesus" is suing Google for rights to the site and unspecified monetary damages.

The way this case plays out will be interesting, and possibly precedent setting. If the plaintiff wins the case how safe are other domains on Blogger? Or any other web host for that matter?

Bad Santas

Forty Kiwi drunks dressed as Old St. Nick rampaged through Wellington, New Zealand robbing and pillaging all the way.

The rampage, dubbed "Santarchy" by local newspapers, began early Saturday afternoon when the men, wearing ill-fitting Santa costumes, threw beer bottles and urinated on cars from an Auckland overpass, said Auckland Central Police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty.

She said the men then rushed through a central city park, overturning garbage containers, throwing bottles at passing cars and spraying graffiti on buildings.

One man climbed the mooring line of a cruise ship before being ordered down by the captain. Other Santas, objecting when the man was arrested, attacked security staff, Hegarty said.

The remaining Santas entered a downtown convenience store and carried off beer and soft drinks.

"They came in, said 'Merry Christmas' and then helped themselves," store owner Changa Manakynda said.

Apparently, "Santarchy" is a worldwide movement aimed at protesting the commercialization of Christmas. It originated in 1994 in - big shocker here - San Francisco. The a-holes in question were arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct. Merry Christmas.

Hell Hath No Fury...

...Like a woman scorned.

German woman tries to make her female room-mate go bald for dating her ex.

Brigitte Tullman, 20, was given a six-month suspended sentence by a court in Mainz after slipping an Immac-like product into housemate Lisa Burgermeister's shampoo.

According to witnesses at the trial Burgermeister, 20, had recently started going out with Tullman's ex-boyfriend.

Tullman was charged with grievous bodily harm as the two different hair chemicals blended into a dangerous mix which burned Burgermeister's hands before she could use it.

Burgermeister's doctor told the court: "Lisa's hands were quite badly burned by the corrosive chemical mixture. I don't even want to consider what would have happened if she had washed her hair with it."

Self-Abusing Intruder Caught On Tape

This has got to make every female's skin crawl. A woman, concerned that her apartment was being broken into, set up a camera in her house to catch the guy red-handed. Well, his hands were involved alright (edited video accompanies the story):

On November 15, while she was at work, the camera captured images of a man entering her apartment appearing to use a key. He leaves, then returns and walks right into a trap.

"Right by the door was the sofa, so I laid some lingerie and other things on it and so it worked," she said.

He handled the lingerie, put on a camisole and underwear, and engages in self-gratification. Before he left, he arranged the underwear as he found it.

And it made the evening news!!

Imagine this guy, unaware of the news story, going to work the next day and wondering why everyone is staring at him? The woman in question has not returned to the apartment since. "I don't trust people as much and I don't feel comfortable being alone," she said.

Apparently, he does.
