Election's Over--Gas Prices Rise Again

[Essential Factoids]
It seems that BSalert wasn't the only one who noticed that the president's approval rating rises when gas prices fall. Starting in August...about the time the Republicans began to get an inkling that they might not be greeted with chocolates and flowers at the polls this time...gas prices had conveniently been dropping to less insane levels. This gave the Democrats one less sore spot to poke in voters who needed a little reminder why they didn't like the status quo. But even cheap(er) gas wasn't enough to buy off the voters this time. And now that the election's over, have you noticed any changes at the pump?

The collection of artifacts was so valuable, so precious, that the insurance company insisted that the premises be patrolled by a trained guard dog at night to prevent theft. Little did they expect the terrible carnage that was to follow....

Barney, a doberman pinscher with six years of blameless service, flew into an unexplained fit of rage and attacked the very objects he had been hired to protect: a collection of rare teddy bears, most on loan from private collectors, on display at a tourist attraction called Wookey Hall Caves in Somerset, England.

  • A school in Colorado has banned flag-waving. Plus, apple pies have been ruled "Too sticky" for the cafeteria's floors.

  • In a speech given in Washington, D.C., President Bush said about democracy, "One of the great things about America, one of the beauties of our country, is that when we see a young, innocent child blown up by an IED, we cry." Apparently, in monarchies, dead children are met with laughter and merrymaking.

  • A study in Michigan found that children behave better, and sleep more soundly, after their tonsils are removed. It helps if the parents threaten to take them back to the hospital and have other parts cut out if they don't straighten up.

In Nepal, fathers are offered a piglet in exchange for not selling their daughters into servitude. The program is a huge success for the daughters...not so much for the pigs.

Scientists discover a new species--actually, new genus and family as well--of animals deep under the sea. They look like pale, fuzzy crabs or giant, white, hairy ticks, and they're nicknamed the "Yeti Crab" for their resemblance to Tibet's abominable snowman.

German man kills friend, feeds the body to pigs as a cover-up. His inspiration? A lecture on Buddhism.
