    An Indonesian police force might want to rethink its drugs disposal policy after accidentally helping residents of one district get high as kite. Destroying tonnes of marijuana in a big bonfire proved to be as reckless as it sounds as those witnessing the event started inhaling the fumes. Journalists and locals began feeling dizzy as police officers, who were wearing masks, destroyed tonnes of marijuana stacked up in a field. The fumes drifted into homes located near to the police station in West Jakarta, Indonesian news website kompas.com reports. “I got a headache because I wasn't wearing a mask," said...

    FREMANTLE, Australia, March 26 (UPI) — An Australian woman was denied bail after she allegedly squirted breast milk on a police officer’s head, arms and clothes. Authorities said Erica Leeder, 26, of Calista, Western Australia, was being searched Tuesday at the Fremantle police station after being arrested on an unspecified warrant. Police said Leeder, who was nude from the waist up during the search, grabbed her own breast and squirted milk onto the forehead, arms and clothes of the female officer conducting the search. Leeder appeared Wednesday in Fremantle Magistrate’s Court on a charge of assaulting a public officer. She...

The day was par­tic­u­larly cel­e­brated in Reyk­javik's Uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges and an end­less amount of women tweeted their sup­port, and their nip­ples, in­clud­ing an MP.

    Some ethicists argue sexbots will improve our lives by ending prostitution and sex trafficking, and by fulfilling human needs. The Christian Post spoke with three Christians who have written on topics related sex and human relationships and technology to get their take on the issue. The technology required to make a sexbot, or a robot designed for sexual relations with a human, is quickly becoming available, and some companies are already working toward that goal. First, robotics companies are already working toward designing robots that can move like humans and respond to humans with facial expressions. Second, there are several...

    The Serbian government asked people on Tuesday not to dispose of hand grenades and other munitions in the garbage, hoping to minimize accidents as it imposes tighter controls over privately held weapons.

He told Tulsa police he fought the 31-year-old off but in the process she hit him in the head with a laptop computer. Their earlier argument was over his accusing her of being too needy, he said.
