Art Bell Tonight On Radio Station 1520
Sky News Tuesday February 27, 08:39 PM
A rat climbed into a baby's cot and chewed off her nose and part of her lip. The rodent attacked the four-week-old tot as she slept. She had been born prematurely, and her parents awoke when her heart and breathing monitor went off.
They found her lying in a pool of blood.
Police believe milk or formula that had leaked onto the baby attracted the rodent.
No-one else in the home was bitten.
Ratcatchers began sweeping the area in Kansas City, US, after the attack came to light.
Spokesman Michael Swoyer said exterminators had worked through the family's house, several occupied homes nearby, vacant houses and the surrounding sewer system.
"We don't want this to ever happen again," he said.
"We're all over the neighbourhood now."

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- To an Arizona middle school, Batman! Three schools in the north Phoenix suburb of Cave Creek were on lockdown for about 45 minutes Wednesday morning after a student at Desert Arroyo Middle School reported seeing a person dressed as Batman run across campus, jump a fence and disappear into the desert, Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark said.
The student described the person as 6 feet 3 inches tall and possibly male.
"We're assuming it was male, although they did have a mask on," Clark said.
Officers combed the desert around the middle school. A nearby elementary school and high school also were on lockdown as officers sought the caped crusader.
The result - no Batman.
"It's just one of those interesting little stories that we looked into but we couldn't find anyone," Clark said.
Nedda Shafir, a spokeswoman for the Cave Creek Unified School District, said putting all the schools on lockdown was a precautionary measure.
"We didn't want to take any chances," Shafir said. "We just don't want to put anyone at risk."

It's nice to see something different on the menu for ANY game system and this game is TOP NOTCH! Well done makers!!!! Well done!
Wow. Were we playing the same game? The game is broken. It completly froze my 360. I didnt know planes could fly threw water and buildings. Nobody online knows what their doing. They did a great job letting people know what their suppose to be doing. Why wouldn't they just release a single player tutoral first.. This game is a lag fest in the making. Worst xbox live demo of all time.
i agree, most brilliant game ive played in a long time! and for those who moan about it freezing their xbox and all that jazz, well bad luck, cause im pretty sure noone really cares
Thread: This game is just awesome and unique.

I just had a full match, lasted about 30 minutes but we finally managed to sink the Allied Aircraft Carriers that the guy hid behind the island and guarded with like 100 planes.
I cant wait for this game now if thats only one battle imagine the Midway battle!
I'm glad to see lots of postive feedback from the demo.
Can't wait for the full game!
Most of the complaints focus on the demo not working (technical issues) or on the complexity of the game (those comments coming from individuals with ADD).
I've played about 12 engagements over the past 2 days and have had zero crashes and zero lag. And I think the gameplay is amazing. A definite purchase for me.
Man with really small penis:
i'd like to of seen that, i've never had a problem sinking a carrier with 3 squads of torp bombers (me controlling one squad)
it takes 2 runs though, i.e. 3 squads torping, then another 3 squads to finish it off, if you get loads of accruate torps in..
Thread: Ewwwww. look at the graphics
Topic Creator: (12yr old British Kid, A gamers worst nightmare....)
this game definitely sounds like a good idea for a game. but i saw some video on ign n the graphics r ugly. i mean it looks like a glorified ps2 graphics. is tha graphics for tha final game gonna be better? do u know were i can find sum pics of good graphics n not tha poly trash i saw at ign.
I don't think the graphics are bad at all, especially considering some of the chaos that takes place. This game feels massive! They need to work on that collision detection though lol.
Topic Creator: (Most people know to leave by now)
How big are the battles?
Other Person who posts:
plz Don't answer this kids questions.
Topic Creator: (Still not dead)
y? i'm just curious
1. do research on the game yourself
2. all you care about is graphics, go play gears of war and be easily amused, i really dont want you on my team online saying "wtf, my plane cants go underwater?"!!!!"!"!"!wtf"
Well now, when playing a game as complicated as Battlestations: Midway, you know their will be people with questions and some with answers........Okay fuck it! I was trying to make this paragraph of useful information" really interesting and full of facts that will help you enjoy this online experience that is Battlestations, BUT I CAN'T!!! I can only sit here and remember the constant whineing of 10-12 year olds wondering how to make planes fly and how to change weapons, oh and my favorite one, (I am not even joking) " How do I fire?"......How does he fire.......Hmmmmmmm.......A good question....Let me take him back to past games he has played such as Halo 2. In Halo 2, the player uses the right trigger to fire....Yes, Halo 2......The game this kid ruined for many other gamers by his constant whineing and just plain annoying voice. But back on subject, it turns out he did not even have the right unit selected to fire. Five minutes into the mach and he is still back at the harbor. Finally, after what seems like an eternity, we explained to him the correct procedure for launching a ship. He did it. Then came the onslaught of questions such as, "How do put fires out?" How do I turn quicker?" "How do I (insert anything here)?". Now I have no problem when the semi-retarded kid is on the other team now, makes winning a hell of alot easier, but when he is on my team....I just can't do it!! I bdsfhgkndt!!!! Anyways, I have fell in love with the submarine, the way it cuts through water (and battleships at RAMMING SPEED) like questions through a ****. I love torpedos. I love surfacing under a patrol boat. I love Beef Jerky.
I have just witnessed stupidity in its purest form. The other team had two players on their team who were most definatly 13 or younger. Both had submarines, I had just my submarine. I did what anyone in their right mind would do, I ran......er swam....er oh screw it. Anyways, I called in for air support as the odds were against me, but just then it hit me. I had just realized the odds could go fuck them selves......The two subs I had been running from did not know how to dive ( a simple click down on the d-pad)!!! I was over come with joy as I launched 5 torpedos at each enemy vessel, each a direct hit. Never in that game had two kills come so easy! I watched in awe as the two submarines slowly started to turn upside down (???) and float to the bottom~

And as for The Hills Have Eyes 2........sorry
(Email I recieved after my friend went and saw a test screening of The Hills Have Eyes 2......*cries*....)
I am begging you to warn people about how fucking bad this movie is! I saw it a few weeks ago and it is by far one of the worst horror movies I've ever seen. I actually liked the first Hills Have Eyes remake but this sequel was God awful. The entire audience was laughing at it's unintentional stupidity throughout. Before the screening began we were chosen to be apart of a panel after the film to give input into making it better; (which is impossible) but once the movie ended they could barely convince anyone to stay because of how atrociously wretched it was. Even retarted mutants will have their intelligence insulted. I've seen better Roger Corman/sci-fi channel movies of the week.
The opening was cool. You actually graphically see the birth of a mutant coming through the birth canal; but afterwards it's all downhill. And the final kill was good times, the leads smash a mutants head to bits with a hammer. But these are the only tolerable moments. You don't give a shit about any of the characters, they are all cookie cutter, stereotypical military personnel spouting video game worthy dialogue. I would have been fine with it if they would have made up for it all with some bad ass kills and gore but the mutants don't even have that much screen time; leaving us with the boring as fuck story line and shitty dialogue. Every decision the characters make don't make any sense, which is to be expected from any horror movie I guess? But the director made it all even worse, he lacks any sense of style or talent, but again what do you expect from the guy who directed Sisquo videos.
I feel terrible for anyone who pays to see this in a theatre. I saw it for free and I wanted my money back. Fox Atomic knows how to pick em. Turistas, the scrapped Revenge of the Nerds remake and now this. Peace out.

Momofuku Ando, Japanese inventor of instant noodles, dies at 96
The Associated Press
Saturday, January 6, 2007
Momofuku Ando, the Japanese inventor of instant noodles, has died, according to Nissin Food Products Co., the company he founded. He was 96.
Ando died of a heart attack on Friday, Nissin said in a statement posted Saturday on its corporate Web site.
He was born in Taiwan in 1910, when the island was under Japanese colonial rule. He moved to Japan in 1933, according to Japan's daily Mainichi newspaper.
Faced with food shortages in post World War II Japan, Ando developed the idea that a quality, convenient noodle product would help feed the masses. He founded Nissin in 1948.
In 1958, "Chicken Ramen," the first instant noodle product, was introduced after many trials. Following its success, the company continued to add innovative products, including "Cup Noodle" in 1971.
"The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum" opened in 1999 in Ikeda City in western Japan commemorating his inventions.
The company's products even went into space when Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi took instant noodles in a pouch called "Space Ram" on his 2005 mission on board the U.S. space shuttle Discovery.
Ando was a keen promoter of developing food for space travel, Nissin said.
Ando gave a 30-minute speech at the company's New Year ceremony and enjoyed Chicken Ramen for lunch with Nissin employees on Thursday before falling ill, Japan's largest daily Yomiuri said.
Hot water will be added to the coffin, he will be lowered into the ground, and slightly stirred.
---------------------------------ZOMBIE MOVIE FOR JOO!
