THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Dentist who removed all of a German patient’s teeth in a bid to cure his erectile dysfunction is ordered to pay £14,000 compensation: “A dentist who pulled out a man’s teeth to try and cure his erectile dysfunction has been ordered to pay 20,000 euros (£14,000) in compensation. The patient – known only as Alex S – had all 19 of his teeth removed over four weeks in Munich, Germany, and was charged 2,000 euros (£1,435). He believed the series of operations would help him regain his vitality and also cure his schizophrenia. The dentist – known only as K – claimed to be a ‘recognised healer’ and said he helped the ‘spiritual self-healing capabilities of his patients’. In a letter to his lawyer K claimed that he had healed the patient by removing his ‘poisonous’ teeth – adding that the patient was ‘not psychotic’ but ‘marvellous’. But in court K said he pulled the teeth out because Mr S, who lived in woods and only ate raw foods, had bone inflammation and was allergic to fillings. An independent report found no basis for the operation. K was also ordered to pay the cost of Mr S’s implants.”

Idiot prisoner tried to carve ‘the sign of the beast’ 666 into his forehead – but used a mirror so it came out backwards: “It was meant to be the ultimate symbol of menace: carving ‘666’ into his forehead. But in a phenomenal case of idiocy, convicted murderer Nikko Jenkins used a mirror – so the numbers came out backwards. The symbol is described in the biblical book of Revelation as ‘the sign of the beast’, and has since been popularized by the horror movie The Omen. However, with a series of upside-down 9s, Jenkins has fashioned himself an entirely unique – and irreversible – engraving. According to Omaha.com, Jenkins told his attorney about the latest case in a phone call from his cell in Omaha, Nebraska. It comes amid the 28-year-old’s ongoing appeal that he is mentally unstable and therefore ineligible to face the death penalty. Jenkins was jailed exactly one year ago for shooting dead four people in 10 days after being released from prison. During his murder trial in Douglas County, Jenkins was assessed by a doctor who concluded that he was ‘a psychopath’ and ‘one of the most dangerous people’ he had ever encountered.”

Dummo jumps into river even though he can’t swim: “A coroner has raised concerns over the lack of swimming lessons included in the national curriculum after a 15-year-old drowned in a river on the first day of his summer holidays. Rony John, 15, died after jumping into the River Great Ouse in Hartford, Cambridgeshire, despite being unable to swim. The hearing heard that swimming is compulsory during primary school but is not enforced for those aged 11 or over. But an inquest heard how Rony was swept away by the current and would have died within four minutes of jumping into the water. His body was not found until the following day. The hearing, which took place in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, heard how Rony came to Britain from India in 2012 and did not know how to swim.

Dawn of the supersize plane seat: Extra wide chair unveiled for overweight passengers: “A plane seat specifically targeted at making plane travel more comfortable for obese passengers and small children has won a prize for its innovation vision this week. The adapted chair by SII Deutschland, beat off competition from 21 finalists to win the Passenger Comfort Hardware award at The Crystal Cabin Awards in Hamburg, Germany. Sitting at one-and-a-half times the width of a standard seat, the SANTO seat (Special Accommodation Needs for Toddlers and Overweight Passengers) aims to improve aircrew procedure and passenger safety. The adapted seat would make use of the usually wasted space at the back of aircraft, where the fuselage narrows. It would be a larger version of the aircraft chairs, meaning a wider passenger could comfortably and safety fit in the chair, without disrupting the neighbouring customer. As the SANTO seat has an extra half a seat width, a baby seat could be fitted securely into the chair, with enough space for a regular customer to sit alongside without paying for an extra seat.

Is this YODA hidden in a medieval manuscript? Biblical character painted in 14th century book resembles Star Wars hero: “A green-skinned figure in a medieval manuscript may look very familiar to Star Wars fans. The ink illustration appears to show the Jedi knight Yoda on the pages of a religious document. But in fact, the drawing is part of a bizarre representation of the Biblical story of Samson, one expert claims. ‘The Yoda image comes from a 14th century manuscript known as the Smithfield Decretals,’ British Library curator Julian Harrison told MailOnline. ‘I’d love to say that it really was Yoda, or was drawn by a medieval time traveller, but it’s actually an illustration to the biblical story of Samson — the artist clearly had a vivid imagination!’ the curator of the museum’s medieval manuscripts blog said. Dr Harrison said it is simply a whimsical addition to the page, which also includes other strange human-animal hybrids.”
