I can’t feel my balls!
The “unluckiest man” award this week goes to the Spanish dude who got struck in the scrotum by lightning. I kid you not, he was walking down the street in Madrid minding his own beeswax when kaboom, the bolt went through his pants, zapping his balls before traveling down his legs and through to the footpath. Hmm, evidently his brain wasn’t affected by the lightning, which is surprising, considering most men think with their….ah never mind. The guys OK, though he may be walking bow legged for awhile.

Damn, you win dad!
Imagine spending 84 years inside the walls of a convent without ever leaving? Well, 103 year old nun, Sister Teresita, has. Yep, the last time she left the convent, which is located 60 miles from Madrid, was during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39 and then only in brief intervals of a few hours during fighting. But, drum roll please, the spritely soul will soon leave the nunnery one more time to meet Pope Benedict XVI during World Youth Day (hmm, she kinda missed that boat!). Anywho, I hope she doesn’t forget to pack the sun cream!

Madrid, fine and cloudy with a chance of cocaine!
OK, if you are going to test the air of Spanish cities I suggest you avoid testing near universities and areas frequented by drug dealers. Latest results by Spanish scientists reveal that the air around Barcelona and Madrid contain traces of 5 different drugs including cocaine and LSD. Cocaine being the most prominent! No people, going there is not going to get you high but coming back through customs might give you grief!
