HOW DID OZZYS DRIVERS TEST GO?
Ozzy Osbourne tells Q magazine that he once fell asleep during a driving test. ''I last drove four years ago. I've got an American driving license and I bought a Ferrari. Sharon went, 'Oh no, you're not having this'. It's not a good idea is it, Ozzy Osbourne and a Ferrari? I took so many driving tests because I was so out of it. On one occasion I nodded off during the test. When I woke up there was a note on the seat saying, 'You have failed.''
 
 
 
Woman Receives Police Escort To Hospital: A group of police officers from Shimla, India are being hailed as heroes for carrying a pregnant woman on their shoulders for six miles. The 23 year-old woman called for help after she went into labor. An ambulance could not reach her because snow blocked all the roads down the mountain she lives on. The police officers arrived at the woman's home, wrapped her in a quilt and then placed her on a cot before carrying her down the mountain. It took 3.5 hours to reach the hospital. The woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
 
 
Assault With A Deadly Paper Plane: A high school student from Georgetown County, South Carolina could be facing 30 days in jail for allegedly throwing a paper airplane at a teacher. The Southern Strand News claims the paper plane struck the teacher in the eye. Deputies arrested 17 year-old David Elliot and charged him with third-degree assault and battery. The teacher called police because his eye was inflamed. The teacher and student had been involved in several confrontations about the student's behavior
 
 
Naked Exercise Classes
The Sun claims naked exercise classes are being offered in Southampton, England. Participants do naked calisthenics and also ride bikes while nude.
35 year-old Helen Smith runs the class. She tells the paper: “The main benefit of exercising naked is that you can really see what the instructor is doing in the exercises. For example, if you are doing a plank but wearing baggy exercise clothes, it is hard to tell if you have the correct form or not. You also don’t have to think about washing sweaty gym clothes after the class, and it’s a great way to celebrate the body.”
Ten people took part in Helen's first class.
 
 
How'd You Like a Million Bucks?
Need a million bucks? Well it's all yours if you can do one simple task: figure out how to keep interloping Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. The state of Michigan is actually offering the cash to anyone who can come up with an idea that works. So why so much money? Well it's peanuts compared to what the Michigan Department of Natural Resources says it could cost if the pesky fish isn't controlled. They claim it has the potential to cause substantial "economic, ecological, and human health harm," by placing a $7 billion fishing industry at stake, as well as $38 billion from tourism and water recreation. Now go get busy (TRY THE "NO"  TECHNIQUE)
