I've heard that undercooked pork will cause you to "have worms" (parasites) in your stomach. Does this really happen? Is this legit? Kinda scary if it is...

P.E. teacher motivates kids with 'I'm in Love with a Stripper'

A physical education teacher at an Intermediate School was trying to use music to motivate kids during a jump-rope fundraiser. One of the songs wound up motivating a parent to anger.

During the school's annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser, P.E. teacher Kyle Hasler had a CD mix of upbeat songs put together to play while the students did jump-rope activities. The song "I'm in Love With a Stripper," by Gangsta Grillz mistakenly was added to the CD, Hasler said.

One fifth-grade student noticed the lyrics and reported it to her father. In the graphic version, mention is made of oral sex and pole dancing. A less explicit version is also available; it wasn't clear which version played at school.

Principal Harold King added that he can understand how Hasler didn't notice the words right away because it's hard to understand the lyrics of a lot of today's songs. The music was put together by someone else, and Hasler didn't listen to it before he played it in class.

King said from now on all music will be screened by the music department before being allowed in the classroom. Article here.

Britney Spears is the anti-christ? ...and attempts suicide

Britney Spears has flipped her lid in rehab, trying to hang herself with a bedsheet after screaming "I am the anti-christ" to frightened staff.

She made the demonic cry after scrawling the devil's number "666" across her head. Spears's manic behaviour has concerned relatives who once again fear for her safety, and has staff at the Promises Clinic in Malibu, California struggling to cope.
Within days of her suicidal behaviour, Spears - who was in and out of rehab before shaving her own head and later attacking a photographer's car with an umbrella - was begging estranged husband Kevin Federline not only for a reconciliation, but demanding she wanted to soon have another baby.

The ordeal began when she terrified staff by writing the number of the beast on her head and running around the clinic screaming, "I am the anti-christ!" "The clinic people just didn't know what to do," a friend claimed.

The pop star then tried to hang herself with a bedsheet was but was found before she could hurt herself. Article here.

Not only is sleeping naked more comfortable, it's good for your health.

Not only is sleeping naked more comfortable, but it's good for your health too. Increasing your level of comfort makes it easier for you to relax and sleep, so you get a better night's kip. The resulting deeper, longer sleep makes it easier for your body to regenerate and repair itself, and build up your energy for the day ahead.

If you find yourself tired in the morning or during the day even though you've had at-least eight hours sleep, you may only be sleeping lightly for that period of time. As mentioned earlier, sleeping naked allows your body to relax more immediately, and you are more likely to fall into a deeper sleep more quickly and wake up refreshed.

If you sleep with a partner, being naked heightens the level of intimacy between you, and you are likely to have sex more often. You may also feel closer to your partner as a result of sleeping naked with them. There is also evidence of improved fertility in men as a result of being in cooler conditions thanks to wearing less clothing.

Photo of topless wife ends dude's pole protest

A German man who spent 10 days in a self-made box atop a 72-foot-tall pole to protest a looming jail term was lured off his perch by his wife -- who sent up a topless picture of herself in his lunch box.
Fred Gregor, 45, was bidding to have his 15-month conviction for fraud overturned by squatting in his tiny cubicle atop a converted television mast. He told Reuters in a telephone interview last week that he wanted a new trial.

His wife Susanne, 25, backed his protest until the former stripper and mother of their five children decided she had had enough. Article here.

Dude sues tattoo parlor over "CHI-TONW" tattoo mistake

Michael Duplessis is suing a Northwest Side tattoo parlor in connection with a tattoo he received that he alleges mistakenly read “CHI-TONW” above a rendering of a John Hancock Center-like skyscraper.

The misspelled tattoo, which Mr. Duplessis received at Jade Dragon Tattoo, has caused the Chicago man “emotional distress from public ridicule” and “loss of self-esteem and psychological pain and suffering,” according to a complaint filed Feb. 13 in Cook County Circuit Court.

The complaint alleges that workers at the tattoo parlor “fraudulently induced” Mr. Duplessis to sign a form that waived them of any liability for work performed on the tattoo. Article here.

Running late costs American companies $90 billion

A recent survey found 15 to 20 percent of the U.S. population is "consistently late," especially when it comes to work.

Chronic lateness isn't just annoying — it's expensive. American CEOs are late to eight out of every 10 meetings, according to a 2006 survey by Proudfoot Consulting. And when CEOs are late by 10 minutes every day, it costs the U.S. economy $90 billion in lost productivity.

"It's a huge drain on productivity when meetings consistently start 10 or 15 minutes behind, and tardiness has a snowball effect as one person's lateness affects the productivity of his or her colleagues," said Diana DeLonzer, author of the recently published "Never Be Late Again, 7 Cures for the Punctually Challenged."

For some, being chronically late can be damaging and embarrassing. For others, it's a way of showing power or prestige. In a 1997 San Francisco State Univeristy study, DeLonzor found that the punctually challenged often shared common personality characteristics such as anxiety, low levels of self-control, or a penchant for thrill-seeking.

Dude mails his g-friend severed head of kitten? WTF?

A man accused of mailing the severed head of a kitten to his ex-girlfriend was ordered to stand trial on stalking and animal-cruelty charges.

Benjamin Gregory, 30, of Pittsburgh, allegedly sent the gift-wrapped package in January because he was unhappy that the relationship had ended, police said. His ex-girlfriend is an attorney who volunteers at animal shelters.

On Jan. 28, the woman received the kitten head along with a note that read, "I love u, your Ben," she testified at a preliminary hearing Thursday. Gregory's attorney, Phil Melograne, contends the woman has been harassing Gregory, and suggested she orchestrated the kitten head incident herself.

A district judge rejected that argument and ordered Gregory back to jail to await trial. The judge reduced an animal cruelty charge to a lesser summary offense because medical evidence showed the kitten was dead before its head was cut off. Article here.
