Naked man crashes through woman's ceilingA Mississippi woman was awakened last week by a naked man crashing through her ceiling. Kaliegh Townsend says that when she jumped out of bed to investigate a loud noise, she found the nude male stranger “standing in the middle of my living room, and there’s a big gaping hole in my ceiling.” The man, identified by police as Patrick Williams, begged her for a pair of shorts, settled for her jacket, and then fled. Police said he’d entered the crawl space above Townsend’s apartment to evade a manhunt.

A diagnosis from Qaddafi’s plastic surgeonMuammar al-Qaddafi’s plastic surgeon says he injected the dictator’s own belly fat into his facial wrinkles 16 years ago, but that Qaddafi is now badly in need of more work. Dr. Liacyr Ribeiro, a Brazilian surgeon, says Qaddafi requested facial work and hair plugs because “he did not want the young people of his nation to see him as an old man.’’ The fat injections would wear off in five years, Ribeiro warned Qaddafi, and at that point “the skin would sag and the wrinkles would reappear.’’ Qaddafi never called him back. “He is not looking very good these days,” the surgeon noted.

How a gang of muggers saved a man's lifeA British man’s life was saved by a gang of muggers who beat him up and slashed him with a knife. Iain Petrie, 33, was sent for a precautionary CT scan after the assault, whereupon doctors discovered he had a brain tumor. The tumor was removed in emergency surgery, and Petrie is expected to make a full recovery. “I can’t hate them,” said Petrie’s mother, Anne, of the attackers. “They did Iain a favor.”
