Plus perhaps to "accidentally" link to lesbian porn.
The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said an 88-year-old woman fended off a naked intruder by grabbing the man's crotch and squeezing. Deputy Paul McRedmond said the man got into the house Tuesday through a sliding door. He backed the woman into her living room and pushed her face down onto a chair.
That's when the woman reached behind and squeezed. The man tore free and fled.
The truck, carrying 12 tonnes of freshly brewed beer, lost most of its load on a sharp left-hand turn at the bottom of a hill, according to Kassel police inspector Wolfgang Jungnitsch.
Nearly 80 crates carrying about 800 litres flew off the truck, most of the bottles smashed, and their contents quickly froze in the chilly temperature of about minus 4 degrees Celsius, he said.
"A sheet of ice quickly formed and the air was filled with beer fumes," Inspector Jungnitsch added.
It took an hour to clear the intersection, and police said the trucker faced a fine for not securing his load properly.

New rules have been proposed for D.C. public libraries, including a ban on sleeping and a limit on bringing in bags, in what library officials called an effort to make the system more welcoming.
But Mary Ann Luby, an advocate for the homeless, said the bag and sleeping rules "are going to be hard on people."
Maybe, but thanks to this work, ample targets for hobo hunters will soon appear to help rectify this issue.
According to Coral Springs police spokesman Sgt. Joe McHugh, the father and son were fishing in a canal behind 190 NW 113th Way around 9:30 Friday morning when they spotted what they thought was a coconut or a turtle on the bottom of the canal.
They fished the mystery item from the bottom of the canal using a pool net and noticed it appeared to have two eye sockets. They immediately called the police to report the discovery.
Sgt. McHugh says the police department recovered several bones located in this culvert back in July 2001 but it's too early to determine if the two cases are related.

A 23-year-old mechanical engineering student has downed 46 of the potato pancakes in eight minutes to win a contest at a Long Island deli.
Pete Czerwinski (sir-WIN'-skee) says he'd never eaten a latke (lot-kuh) before consuming about seven pounds of them Sunday at Zan's in Lake Grove. The Toronto bodybuilder says he's just "a power eater" whose brain never signals that he's full.
Association of Independent Competitive Eaters Chairman Arnie Chapman says Czerwinski demolished the contest's previous record of 31 latkes, set in 2006.
Brooklyn college student Will Millender took second place Sunday with 29 latkes.

He says, "I'm not really that gregarious. And shooting with groups of people up and down the country has taught me a lot about how to get on with my fellow human beings."
The musician recently cleared out his gun cabinet, selling 13 pieces off at auction in Britain.
Clapton insists he had to get rid of the weapons, because he became hooked on collecting them.
He adds, "It is following the same pattern as when I collected guitars - I get obsessed, then engulfed and finally narrow the collection down."

I may be lonely and childless, but at least I have plenty of money to spend on Val-U-Rite vodka and cyanide-tipped arrows for hobo huntin' that would otherwise be spent on toys that would get instantly broken and jewelery that would be extremely difficult to pawn anytime in the not-too-distant future. You know, in case I would possibly need more money for discount liquor or hunting supplies.

The tank is powered by two, 500 watt 24 volt motors which are so powerful that it can pull a car on a level surface.
The tank is the meanest machine available at Mark 1 Tanks, based in Easton, near Winchester, Hampshire.

Other models of tank are also available including the famous World War Two Sherman, the German Tiger 1 and the Russian T34.
Company founder Mark Spencer said he began building the tanks himself after buying a less detailed version from a seller in Russia.
