    Dastardly Nazi plans to hide bombs in chocolate bars, mess tins and even bangers and mash have today been revealed in a series of secret wartime sketches unearthed after 70 years. Explosives were also hidden in Thermos flasks, cans of motor oil and even lumps of coal as the German war machine plotted murder on the streets of Britain. The chocolate bar, which would have exploded when a chunk was broken off, was designed specifically for Winston Churchill in the hope his sweet tooth would lead to his death. The lethal slabs of chocolate were packed with enough explosives to...

    INDIAN HEAD, Md. (March 1, 2006) -- Key Volunteers from the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF) didn't realize how many Marines and Sailors at the unit had a sweet tooth until they sold $430 worth of baked goods March 1st. Two hours after the "Returning Heroes Fund" bake sale began, it became abundantly clear that a simple idea like selling baked goods to raise funds for Marines and Sailors returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom would be a success. As the shadow of the third anniversary [March 19th] of the Iraqi conflict approaches, Sheryl Brochu, the...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Three minutes after Jim Hager started eating M&Ms with a pair of chopsticks, he was headed for the Guinness Book of World Records. The 47-year-old Oakland resident gobbled 115 M&Ms in 3 minutes Sunday, breaking a previous record of 112 Smarties consumed by Kathryn Ratcliffe of England in December 2002. The new record won't become official until event organizers send documentation to the Guinness association, including a videotape, photographs and written declarations from witnesses, but it seems likely he'll have his place in the list. For his efforts, he received 25 pounds of M&Ms courtesy of...
