Description: When Chicago police investigating reports of shots fired stopped a car that Shandra Kidd, 22, was riding in, she bolted. After an officer caught her, she stuck a gun in the officer's chest and pulled the trigger. The gun didn't fire. She tried again, but again the gun didn't go off. The officer then shot Kidd in the buttocks and arrested her. Investigators explained Kidd's gun was empty because the cylinder opened while she was fleeing, and all the bullets fell out. (Chicago Sun-Times)Rhiannon Brooksbank-Jones, 19, showed her commitment to Korean Studies at Britain's University of Sheffield by having her tongue surgically lengthened to improve her Korean pronunciation. The lingual frenectomy, which involves cutting a flap of skin that connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth, lets her make sounds she couldn't before. "My pronunciation was very foreign,'" she said, "but now I can speak with a native Korean accent." (Britain's Daily Mail)Swedish authorities arrested Richard Handl, 31, for trying to split atoms in his kitchen. Handl, who is unemployed, explained he bought the radioactive elements radium, americium and uranium on the Internet and from Germany and tried setting up a nuclear reactor at home in Angelholm. After causing a small meltdown on his stove, Handl contacted Sweden's Radiation Authority to make sure his experiments were legal. Police were dispatched immediately. Handl stated he was just "curious" about splitting atoms but admitted his plan was "crazy." (Britain's The Telegraph)
