Now this is something you would not even think exists...vats of fish feces?

Rescuers cut through a filtration tank of dense fish feces to reach four workers who fell into the sludgy dung Friday while cleaning the 18-foot tank at a western Massachusetts farm.

The workers became trapped for 45 minutes after a bracket holding a plastic filtration pad collapsed as workers stood on it to clean the fiberglass tank at the Australis Aquaculture fish farm, said Turners Falls Fire Capt. David Dion and the fish farm's manager, Josh Goldman.

Bats in the belfry! Be sure to check your attic from time to time!

An upstate New York couple didn't think a few bats in the attic were much of a problem when they were buying a house last summer.

Months later, they found out how wrong they were -- when they discovered more than a ton-and-a-half of bat droppings up there.

Nick LaBoda and Jenna Caputo say a home inspector informed them about the bats. They called an exterminator, who told them to wait awhile before removing the bats because the babies were too young to fly.

Two hearts are better than one! Now this story I really do not think is right. That heart was in another person's body already. I would think that it would need to be checked out. Who knows what the person who had it did as far as upkeep of his own health once he got it. Plus all the drugs to stop rejection. This does not sound like such a good thing.

Two months ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, surgeons removed a transplanted heart from a patient who had died and re-transplanted it in another recipient.

"To my knowledge, this is the first time this has been done with a transplanted heart," Dr. Lawrence S. C. Czer, medical director of the center's heart transplant program, told Reuters. "Even with other organs, repeat transplantation is very rare."

The second patient was a 45-year-old man with noncompaction syndrome, a rare cardiac condition in which the heart assumes a sponge-like appearance. The disease is progressive, and the man's heart became more and more disabled despite the best medical therapy.

The king and queen of thugs are at it again. Bobby GET A JOB!

Bobby Brown is suing ex-wife Whitney Houston and seeking to change the terms of their custody arrangement for their 14-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

In court documents filed in Orange County, Calif., Brown, 40, says that financial and emotional problems prevented him from filing a response to Houston's divorce papers.

"After Whitney and I separated, I had nowhere to go and very little money to live on," Brown states. "I was, for all intents and purposes, homeless."
