Some of the news from the Weekly World News (you know you can't get enough of that Batboy, either)
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
GLOBAL warming is caused by the hot flashes of millions of Baby Boomer women. "The planet is sizzling and females going through the change of life
are to blame," says the opening line of a controversial new study.
But they still haven't found the anti-stupidity gene
DOCTORS FIND ANTI-WIMP GENE!
WASHINGTON -- If you're a tough guy who laughs at pain while your buddy wimps out at the slightest thing, it could all be in your genes.
University of Michigan neuroscientists say they've found people who tolerate pain differently also have a variation in one of their genes. It's the
gene that helps regulate the body's natural painkillers.
When women rule the world, we'll teach them to think with their other brain...
MAKE YOUR OWN 'VIAGRA' KNOCK-OFF FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR!
BOCA RATON -- You can make a love pill that works just like Viagra for pennies on the dollar with a do-it-yourself recipe developed by pioneering
nutritionist Dr. Donna Schwontkowski. And it's not just for guys, says the expert -- it works for the ladies, too. Young couples eat it up, she
says, as do college students looking for cheap thrills.

The mystery man, who claimed to be a visitor from the year 2256, jumped bail before a scheduled court hearing on April 3 and hasn't been seen since,

source. "No one can find him. Some people are speculating that he might really have hopped in his time machine and escaped 'back to the future.'"
Authorities can't talk on the record about the case due to a judicial gag order and details about the ongoing, hush-hush criminal investigation are
hard to come by. However, in this week's (4/29/03) "Newsstand Issue" we are hot on the trail of the details of the case, from the benefactor who
bailed him out, to his predictions which were used to prove he was from the future.
Gotta love it.
Now... in all fairness, some of the stories ARE true -- but they put the weirdest possible spin on the news (such as the pain receptors being
responsible for wimpiness/non wimpiness.) Always entertaining, always weird, mostly fictional... but who can resist Batboy?
