Tail building instructions
"This is a description of how to build a tail to wear in daily life. It is a light construction, easy to wear and to take off when you need it, and sufficiently robust..."
The Tail Man
"When riding your bicycle, you best put a basket on your carrier, and curl up your tail in it, so it doesn't get caught in the spokes.
If you have to move your tail without wearing it, it can be curled into a small spiral - the plastic ribbon is elastic enough.
When going downstairs, the tail will slide on the stairs. This is usually not a problem, unless the stairs are very dirty, or someone unaware of the tail is walking directly behind you. In this case you will have to carry the tail in your hand, also on escalators where it might be caught in the mechanics."
You've eaten at a few Japanese restaurants, seen some anime, hosted an exchange student, and had a Japanese girlfriend. And now, somewhere in the back of your tiny brain, you think that Japanese would be a good language to learn. Hey, you could translate video games! Or Manga! Or even Anime! Pick up Japanese girls, impress your friends! Maybe you'll even go to Japan and become an anime artist! Yeah! Sounds like a great idea!
So you head down to the library, pick up some books with titles like "How To Teach Yourself Japanes In Just 5 Seconds A Day While Driving Your Car To And From The Post Office" and "Japanese For Complete And Total, Utter Fools Who Should Never Procreate". Hey, you already know a few words from your manga collection/girlfriend/anime. Excited and impressed with your new knowledge, you begin to think: "Hey. Maybe, just maybe, i could do this for a living! Or even major in Japanese! Great Idea, Right?
Iraqi toll in the thousands
Washington - An estimated 13 000 Iraqis, including 4 300 non-combatants, were killed during the major combat phase of the war in Iraq. (March 19 to the end of April)
The Project on Defense Alternatives said its estimate was based on a review of US combat data, battlefield press reports, and Iraqi hospital surveys.
Of the total number of Iraqi fatalities during the relevant period, approximately 30% (or between 3 200 and 4 300) were non-combatant civilians -- that is civilians who did not take up arms," the report said.
The study, authored by Carl Coneta, found that deaths of Iraqi civilians who did not take up arms in the fighting was as high or higher than in the 1991 Gulf War despite advances in precision weaponry.

New energy source found in tap water
Scientists who discovered a new way of generating electricity from water say they may have stumbled across an alternative source of clean energy to rival wind and solar power. The breakthrough could lead to batteries that use water instead of toxic substances.
The scientists made the discovery when they were investigating what happens when tap water is forced through extremely narrow glass tubes. "When we took a syringe of water and squeezed it through the filter, we got enough power to light a light bulb," said Larry Kostiuk of the University of Alberta in Canada. "The harder you push the syringe, the more volts you get."
Water batteries might one day be used to power mobile phones and calculators. More likely would be to install the electricity-generating devices where water is already being pumped, such as at city water filtration sites.
