Man Has A Brief Snack About to be given a Breathalyzer test by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a Canadian man ate his cotton underwear believing that it would soak up the alcohol in his stomach so he could pass the test.
The Italian supreme court has outlawed men from touching their genitals in public.
Crotch-grabbing is an ancient superstitious habit in Italy that is believed to ward off the evil eye.
It's traditional for men to do it if passed by a hearse or when discussing serious illness or disasters.
However, the supreme court ruled that a 42-year-old man from Como had broken the law by "ostentatiously touching his genitals through his clothing".
His lawyers said he had a "compulsive, involuntary movement" because of uncomfortable overalls.
But the court ruled his behaviour was an "act contrary to public decency" and said the law "required everyone to abstain from conduct that is potentially offensive to collectively held feelings of decorum".
The man was fined. Judges pointed out that if men needed to grab their crotches, they should wait until they were in the privacy of their own home.
Newborn baby survives train loo fall
A newborn baby survived falling from the toilet of a moving train just moments after her unexpected birth in India.
The mother, called Bhuri, was travelling on an overnight train near Ahmadabad, in the state of Gujarat, when she gave suddenly birth, reports the Times of India.
Her brother-in-law Arjun Kumar, said she went to the toilet shortly before midnight and unexpectedly gave birth, eight to ten weeks short of term.
Toilets on Indian trains are usually simple holes through to the tracks, and the baby - who weighs barely 3lb - was small enough to slip straight through.
"She fell unconscious and the baby fell through the toilet," said Mr Kumar. "Two stations later, we knocked at the door.
"When we asked her about what happened, she said the baby had fallen through onto the tracks," he went on.
After finding Bhuri, relatives pulled the emergency alarm in the train and informed officials. A guard at one of the stations they had passed found the child on the tracks unhurt.
"She was on the rail track for almost two hours," said Dr. Gautam Jain, a paediatrician at Rajasthan Hospital, Ahmadabad. "We do not expect such children to survive."
The child's mother expressed her shock at events. "My delivery was so sudden," she said. "I did not even realise that my child had slipped from the hole in the toilet."
