Stuffed Buffalo?

An early-morning prank by a group of Eastern Mennonite University students in Harrisonburg, Va., on Friday resulted in a student from Indiana falling from the roof of a three-story dormitory, university officials said.

Michael Wiebe-Johnson, 19, Elkhart, was injured when he and other students were trying to put a stuffed buffalo taken from the school’s science center onto the roof of Oakwood residence hall.

Whether it’s the booming stereo radiating from the next car, a dog barking incessantly, or the neighbor blasting Bon Jovi, noise has enraged most everyone.

Towns have passed laws to deal with it and numerous gadgets have been developed to protect from it. But few have taken their hatred for noise as far as Houston’s Barney Vincelette. A case of mild autism has made him extremely sensitive to noise. Vincelette, who lives in a spaceship-style house, thinks music, especially top 40, rap and rock ‘n’ roll, “sounds the same way feces smells.”

Vincelette used his genius-level IQ and parts of household microwave ovens to develop a makeshift device that uses electromagnetic waves to temporarily jam the circuitry of his neighbors’ stereos.

Thousands of families have been hit with fines of £100 or more for putting their rubbish out on the wrong day. The fixed penalty charges – higher than those given to shoplifters – have been brought in under new laws to try to make once-a-fortnight bin collections work properly.

Councils keep the proceeds of the fines, which can also be imposed on anyone who fails to close their bin lids, leave out extra bags or put the wrong rubbish in the recycling bin.
