(July 15) -- I had no idea that a judge could put an injunction on a woman's chest
. But that's exactly what's happened in Melbourne, Australia, where the Federal Magistrates' Court has ordered a mother to stop breast-feeding her 6-year-old boy.
A 6-year-old still breast-feeding? Well, I can't be too hard on her as a parent... It's one way to keep a kid from talking in the movie theater, and any parent who makes that happen is a Parent of the Year candidate in my book.

The drains lead to two long tunnels that span the city and empty into hundreds of pools, which were used as reservoirs. It's amazing that such an old drainage system could work so well -- and last so long. But hey, those cats didn't have Xbox 360, so our generation is still better. Come to think of it, that might be why they built such amazing architectural feats: no "Red Dead Redemption" to distract them.

I'm glad the flooding in China isn't happening in Canada, or there'd be a mound of dead immigrants. Apparently, according to this study
, immigrants can't swim. Pretty interesting, but it might be because the people moving to Canada aren't really beach people. I wonder what the numbers bear out when it comes to totally gnarly half pipe snowboarding? Or smoking weed? From what I hear, those are the only two things to do in Canada. Well, that and listen to Nickelback. ... But that's probably why they smoke so much weed: to numb the pain in their ears.
