A 103-year-old Ugan­dan man died after father­ing 158 chil­dren and amass­ing around 500 grand­chil­dren. Jack Kigongo fathered his chil­dren from 20 wives, with the old­est child being 60-years-old and the youngest being 15.  That means he was over 40 when he started!  Guess he felt he had to make up for lost time. Patrick Bulira Kigongo said his father is believed to have fathered the high­est num­ber of chil­dren in Uganda.  ONLY in Uganda?   

 Neigh­bors of a British woman who was evicted for ignor­ing a noise abate­ment order said she claimed the con­stant party sounds were caused by a “pol­ter­geist.” Leanne Fen­nell, 20, who was evicted from herHull,England, home and ordered to pay $586.86 in fines and $793 in legal costs to the Hull City Coun­cil, told neigh­bors who com­plained about the late-night loud music that a party-loving specter was behind the noise. A neigh­bor said, “There were always bot­tles and bot­tles of wine and cider just chucked in the gar­den.  She had at least four huge bon­fires to burn some of the rub­bish that was in there.”

 New Hamp­shire teenager Nicholas Ficher was flam­ing mad at another dri­ver for cut­ting him off at a toll booth, so he pulled out his weapon of choice and pointed it at the vehi­cle. His aim, how­ever, wasn’t true, and he ended up fir­ing the flare gun into his own car, set­ting fire to the pas­sen­ger seat — which had a pas­sen­ger sit­ting in it!  A trooper caught up with the 18-year-old as he was try­ing to dis­card the gun. Ficher faces felony threat and reck­less con­duct charges.
