BERLIN (Reuters) - German police are investigating a chilli sauce to determine whether it was so spicy that it was capable of causing grievous bodily harm when used in an attack.Police took a sample of the sauce from a kebab stand in Bremen's central train station after a kebab salesman threw it into the eyes of a customer during a fight over napkins.
It's about time we addressed the dangers of the chilli bomb, a weapon of mass destruction. German authorities are on the case. Who said the terrorist danger was over?

AURORA, Ontario, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- A municipality north of Toronto is trying to accommodate Asian residents by letting them remove "unlucky" numbers from their street addresses. The city council of Aurora, Ontario, voted this week to alter street addresses where possible to appease people from Eastern Asia who dislike the number four, the Toronto Star reported.
I'd like to remove street addresses like Clinton Avenue, Obama Boulevard, and John Murtha Square. They offend my moral sensibilities.
