In a story that will likely cause all women to second guess each stomach twinge, a British woman this week went to the hospital because she'd been feeling badly.

She thought it was just constipation. Instead, she was roughly eight months pregnant.

Amanda Ross had been out shopping with her partner, Paul Dean, when she started experiencing stomach cramps. She'd previously been feeling bloated but wrote it off as being constipated.

This seems to be the week of strange animal stories. The other day it was the roaming gang of street cats, and today it is a stray dog gone wrong.

Taking in a stray dog is such a selfless act. Giving an animal a home is usually paid back in spades by the adoring love of the new mutt. 

And then, sometimes, the dog chews your nuts off.

An Arkansas man, who for obvious reasons wished to remain nameless when recounting his story, found himself in that exact position.

Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst who gave a massive number of documents to WikiLeaks, has been convicted of 19 of 21 charges.

Among them are five counts of espionage. He was found not guilty of aiding the enemy, the most serious and controversial charge against him.

After warning that disruptions would not be tolerated, the judge overseeing his military court martial, Col. Denise Lind, rapidly delivered her verdict.

Journalists watching the proceedings from a remote media room had little time to gauge Manning's reaction before the military cut off a live feed.

The charge of aiding the enemy was the most closely watched, as Manning's conviction would have set a precedent with vast new legal implications.

A Virginia Tech student recently asked Nirvana to record a video shout-out ... and may or may not be under the impression that Kurt Cobain is alive and/or a woman.

Nirvana's former label, Sub Pop, posted the letter they got from the VT student asking them to record this message to university students:

  • VT Letter
  • Kurt Cobain Picture

"What's up, Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS [sic] GO HOKIES!"

The student would be happy to link back to Nirvana's Facebook and Twitter accounts, they said, and then added this kicker to further make the case:

"It presents great publicity for them, as well as Virginia Tech loves Nirvana. We'd love to have her in our video." Alongside the Ying Yang Twins, no less.

Helen and Les Brown, a couple of California sweethearts born on the same day and married 75 years ago, died earlier this month - one day apart.

They were 94.

"It was a real love match, wasn't it?" their oldest son, Les Jr., told the Long Beach Press-Telegram. "They were together every day for 75 years."
