TOKYO (DPI) - A high-tech Japanese toilet expressed confusion today about the seemingly random series of commands sent to it by a visiting American, Japan's NHK News reported today. According to the service log for TOTO SCX-10 Model Cleanaire toilet 863367-2, situated on the 22nd floor of Tokyo's New Otani Hotel, the Westerner first tried to operate the bidet before sitting on the unit. He followed that with the commands "seat up," "seat down," "seat up," "flush," "increase seat temperature," "bidet," "bidet," "flush," "set clock," "air dryer," "decrease seat temperature," "flush," "bidet," "flush," "autoclean," "flush" and "bidet." Officials at the Osaka headquarters of TOTO Ltd., the manufacturer of the toilet, will spend the next several weeks analyzing and testing the data, hoping to recreate the scenario and figure out what went wrong.

Fedayeen Finds Sticks & Stones Won't Actually Break Bones

SAMARRA, Iraq (DPI) - Members of Saddam Hussein's Fedayeen militia rethought their strategy earlier this month when, during their protests, American soldiers replied, saying, "Sticks and stones will break our bones but words will never hurt us." Dozens of the militants set up an ambush in the northern village of Samarra, and when a convoy approached began hurling twigs and gravel at the soldiers. The militants, alarmed when their attacks did little more than chip a windshield on a five-ton truck, were shocked when the soldiers answered with a measured response consisting of machine guns, cannons and tank fire.
