'Osteosculpting', a hobby which derives it's name from the greek word for bone, is a small but thriving subculture spreading like wildfire across the North American continent. Osteosculpters, or 'boners' as they call themselves, use the bones and skeletons of deceased animals, mixed with other animals and species, to create phantasmagorical and other-worldly creatures. 'SkullBender', a prominent character on the Osteosculpting scene, is best known for his skeletal catbird- a glue and bone construct that combines the bones of a feline with the wing bones of a parakeet. By mixing the bones of several different animals, bleaching and gluing them together in unique poses, Sculpters are able to create eerie and haunting works of 'art'. From it’s conception as a ritualistic practice in Sub-saharan Africa popular among ‘witch doctors’, the practice spread to Europe, and finding a niche in the online community, spread via Internet to the United States. However, the subculture is already under fire from animal rights groups who claim that overenthusiastic sculpters, impatient to wait until an already deceased animal is found, often hunt for and slay animals, flaying their flesh and taking their bones, which they will later bleach and add to their sculpture. They cite numerous police reports in which various animals, ranging from pet dogs to exotic reptiles stolen from zoos have been found in bloody piles of flesh, every bone carefully extracted from their bodies. No arrests have so far been made, but police say they are monitoring the Osteosculpting scene carefully and will not tolerate any type of animal cruetly or theft of animals.

Plz send this message to everybody you know so we can demand that the police and government do something to stop this horrible abuse of animals!

The concept is solid, but it doesn't quite sound like an official report.

Solid, but it needs to have originated in some exotic locale, which people usually associate with barbaric practices. You might also work it into a local pagan religion.

What about installing some cms (i.e. http://typo3.org ) on your server, change the templates and give access to a few people, so we can quickly build up our hoax news page and don't need to create every page on its own?

Pornography causes lower sperm count?

Throughout the ages people have considered pornography as "sin". But there may be more to this than just mere morals.
Recently a medical study was performed on a thousand 20-30 year old males that showed interesting results.
They were tested for spermcount, and then asked how frequently they had masterbating to pornography.
The sperm count was lowest on males aged 27-30 who had been excessively masterbating to pornographic content for over fifteen years.
The sperm count was highest on males who had not been exposed to pornographic content.
This means, that the human ability to reproduce is also limited for males.
It has also been noted, that the human species as a whole has become less potent in reproduction, since the internet started to become more widely used.

That's a partial draft of another idea of mine. Probably needs proof reading+fixing.

New Study Links Computer Monitors With ADD, Other Neurological Disorders

A joint effort between the University of Toronto's behavoiral sciences department and Berkeley's biological sciences department has concluded that persons surveyed under 35 put themselves at a 31% greater chance for Attention Defecit Disorder (ADD) by spending 3 hours or more a day at the computer. More alarming, children 16 and under who spend more than 3 hours a day using a computer appeared to be 48% more likely to develop ADD later in life. The link was initally suspected by looking at instances of ADD in children who frequently used computers, as part of another study to determine if video games might be a potential cause.

Interestingly enough, those more at-risk for ADD appeared to be using an older style of monitor known as the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). CRT monitors operate much like a television, but because they offer higher contrast and finer detail, operate at approximately 6-9 times the energy of a television, and are placed much closer to the user. Individuals studied using the newer Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) style monitors exhibited a negligible risk elevation, suggesting that CRT monitors, not computer use is to blame.

Dr. Chiyo Fukuzawa of Berkeley University cautioned, "These monitors operate at higher energies than anything previously on the market, and expose the user to a significantly higher amount of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, of a similar nature to dental X-Rays, although not quite as energetic." She added, when asked about the risk, "These devices have conclusively shown to be not safe, and I would not allow my two children or myself to be exposed to unnecessary risk. Given LCD alternatives, it is possible to minimize health risks, both known, such as ADD, and any currently unknown risks."

The joint study looked at a multitude of possible impact scenarios, and finally concluded that high-energy CRTs are disruptive to normal brain function. Computers themselves were ruled out as the risk source by the University of Toronto, by exposing mice to three hours of CRT emissions on a daily basis. Mice tested exhibited nervousness, disrupted sleep schedules, and inability to remember familiar surrondings. Garland Rousseau, a doctor with the University of Toronto remarked, "These devices have been proven to disrupt brain function on a basic level, and elevate an individual's risk for a variety of neurological disorders. These devices need to be regulated by the governmental agencies, and the public needs to avoid them in favor of less risky alternatives."

Consumers are being urged by scientific and other watchdog agencies to no longer purchase any new CRT monitors, and that frequent computer users, especially those who work in offices, switch to safer LCD based alternatives. Although LCD monitors are more expensive, the study did not link them to any elevated risk, and because of this, employers are already looking to implement them as CRT replacements, to avoid potentially costly injury lawsuits.

The government has no choice but to implement a proposed 13.5% levy on food and other domestic products, to offset costs of food safety research, as well as secure the food supply from terrorist sabotage.
