It can be a heartbreaking situation, or a life-changing one: a woman who has had trouble conceiving seeks in-vitro fertilization. At the cost of thousands of dollars a pop, eggs and sperm are harvested and merged, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the hopeful woman's uterus, in the hope that they will implant and the happy couple will become pregnant.

But is there any way to increase the woman's chances of conceiving? A new study suggests that there may be such a method--clowns.

A 16-year-old girl who tricked her parents into getting her a passport and then flew to the Mideast to be with a man she met on MySpace.com, was returned to Michigan.

This is one of the myriad of myspace stories, but I couldn't help posting it to qualify use of the "bad parents" tag, which isn't used nearly as much as it deserves.

I had to create a new category just for this story it got me so worked up.

Florence Cohen, 85, of New York, upset that she bought the video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for her 14-year-old grandson without knowing it contained hidden, sexually explicit scenes sued the manufacturer Wednesday on behalf of consumers nationwide.

Never mind that the game depicts prostitution, murder, cop-killing, rampant violence, illegality and anarchy in urban streets. This irresponsible parental figure got the game for her grandson and only got upset when it was discovered that there was nudity within? Nudity that couldn't be accessed without major modifications to the game?
