NJ Town Limits Conjugal Visits Between Roosters & Hens

NJ Town Limits Conjugal Visits Between Roosters & Hens | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"A New Jersey town has adopted an ordinance that regulates when chickens and roosters can hook up in backyard henhouses.

Roosters must show they're disease-free and they better not crow about their conquests.

Hopewell Township residents can have up to a half-dozen hens on half-acre lots. Roosters would be allowed only 10 days a year for fertilization purposes.

Mature roosters are not allowed because they're too noisy. Any roosters that crow too long can be banned from the property for two years.

Mayor Jim Burd told The Times of Trenton the ordinance is a compromise between today's lifestyle and the township's agricultural history."

Japanese lab invents Internet kissing machine

Japanese lab invents Internet kissing machine | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
Feel like kissing but don't have a handy human nearby to kiss? Why not try a kissing machine!

"We admit to being sort of creeped out by this: A Japanese lab has created a device that may let let you "French kiss" someone over the Internet.

And by "kiss," we mean waggle your tongue on a plastic straw, thereby making another plastic straw waggle remotely on someone else's tongue.

Hot, huh?

Well, the folks at Tokyo's Kajimoto Laboratory say it's just the beginning of what could become a full-on person-to-person experience over the Internet."

For those of us who really, really value our toilet time: Kohler's $6,390 Toilet

For those of us who really, really value our toilet time: Kohler's $6,390 Toilet | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
This post is dedicated to those of us who really, really value our toilet time. Here are the features of this super-duper (and super expensive toilet):


- Custom Bidet: User can control pressure, temperature and angle.

- Tankless Design: Read: No chains to jiggle!

- Motion Sensor Lid: After 90 seconds of no movement, the toilet will close.

- Seat Warmer: Why should your bottom suffer from a chilly toilet seat?

- Foot Warmer: A vent beneath the bowl blows hot air to warm your feet and the cold tile beneath them.

- Automatic Seat: For male users, a motion sensor is activated by foot and causes the seat to rise and then lower when you're away.

- LED lit back panel: Frosted glass is lit in an energy-efficient way.

- MP3 Hook-up: So you never have to be without your music.

- Remote Control: This touch-screen pad lets the user control all of these features from a wireless control. Should you want to activate the foot warmer in advance.

- A flat white surface designed for easy cleaning: Though we doubt anyone who spends over $6,400 on a toilet is planning to clean it themselves!

» Scorpions, Spiders and Sharks: Electron-Microscope Images | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"The scanning electron microscope has become one of the most powerful scientific visualization tools available, giving us incredible close-up views of anything from volcanic ash to snowflakes to bacteria.

The microscope works by scanning a focused beam of electrons across an object. The electrons interact with the atoms at the surface of the object, revealing the texture and structure with a depth of field that makes for a great three-dimensional sense of the target. Some of the most intriguing images are those of insects and other animals."

Cops: Man Stole Judge's Gavel From Courtroom | The Smoking Gun | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
What would you:

- steal a gavel?
- steal one from a judge in a courtroom?

Weirdo.

"Earlier this week, Magistrate Daniel Cook, who handles small claims cases in Lorain, Ohio, was on the bench when he reached for his gavel and discovered it was missing. After checking “every possible place it could be,” police reported, Cook concluded that someone had actually stolen his gavel.

Court personnel then reviewed surveillance video from days earlier and spotted an unknown male stealing the wooden gavel. The alleged thief, staffers realized, was accompanied by a second man who “was in court on that day trying to get his license back,” according to a Lorain Police Department report."

Woman Wakes Up From Oral Surgery With Transylvanian Accent

Woman Wakes Up From Oral Surgery With Transylvanian Accent | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"An Oregon woman who underwent anesthesia for oral surgery a year and a half ago woke up to find she looked the same, but sounded very different – she had developed foreign accent syndrome, Q13fox.com reported.

Karen Butler, who lives in Butler, Ore., told The Oregonian she “sounded like (she) was from Transylvania,” and it softened a little over time – but she still has not recovered her original Northwestern tone.

Doctors diagnosed Butler with foreign accent syndrome, a neurological condition that has only been documented 60 times in the last 100 years.

"What happens with foreign accent syndrome to the best of our understanding is that a very, very small part of the speech area is affected so that the normal intonation of speech gets altered," said Dr. Ted Lowenkopf, medical director of the Providence Stroke Center.

Butler said she does not hear the accent unless she watches herself on video.

Foreign accent syndrome is usually caused by strokes, but it can also be associated with migraines, head injuries and multiple sclerosis."

Man 'high on bath salts' arrested in bra, panties, accused of stabbing goat

"A US man found wearing women's underwear and standing over a goat's carcass told West Virginia police he was high on bath salts.

Mark L Thompson of Alum Creek was arrested at his home on Monday. A criminal complaint in Kanawha County Magistrate Court charges the 19-year-old with cruelty to animals.
Sheriff's Deputy JS Shackelford says witnesses reported Mr Thompson standing near a neighbour's pygmy goat in a bedroom. He was wearing a bra and female underwear. The goat had at least one stab wound.

Corporal Sean Snuffer says Mr Thompson indicated he had been high and "wasn't in his right mind".

Mr Thompson was held on $50,000 bond yesterday at the South Central Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether he had a lawyer and no listed phone number was available."
