Sounds like somebody still thinks he’s on the racing circuit!

Brazilian Nelson Piquet Snr., famous for his F1 Championship wins in the 1980’s has been forced to go to a driver education course after receiving too many speeding and parking tickets.

“I think we have to pay for our mistakes,” Piquet, 54, told local news agency G1. “It’s not even just a speeding problem. I got tickets for all kinds of reasons, for things like parking where I shouldn’t.”

The man with an addiction to speed has apparently been seen racing round the streets of Brasilia behind the wheel of a number of high-performance machines, including a BMW convertible and a customised roadster fitted out with a Porsche engine.

Piquet will have to spend 30 hours at driving school and pass a written test in order to get his licence back.

Headcase: Man discovers tooth in forehead from rugby clash 15 weeks earlier.

The tooth is where the head is….

For 15 weeks Australian rugby player Ben Czislowski had been wondering why he had been experiencing incessant headaches, an eye infection and constantly feeling lethargic.

With a well overdue trip to the local doctor, Ben discovered that he had been holding the missing tooth from an opposition opponent just above his left eye, after a match played back on April 1, in Queensland State.

He told Australian media:

“We (me and my opponent) had a bit of a head clash and I realised he’d lost some teeth, but I just assumed they were on the ground,” he said.

“I never thought they were lodged in my head. I just got it stitched up and that was about it.”

The 24-year-old says he was shocked when his doctor discovered an infected tooth beneath his skin.

“I probably need his address, I’ve got his tooth at home,” he said.

“It’d probably be the right thing to send it down to him. It was a pretty impressive collision.

“It wasn’t intentional from him and it was just sort of a head clash, and he probably didn’t see it coming. I didn’t see it coming.

“It looked pretty dramatic.”

“It’s a story I can tell for the rest of my life. It will get a bit more exaggerated over the years, but it’s a good laugh.”

Australians are tough people, especially Queenslanders. Steve Irwin was a Queenslander. And Australian rugby players are tough guys, but this is just ridiculous! How did he not realise for 4 months that he had someone else’s tooth lodged into your forehead!

So….

Ben Czislowski, congratulations, you’ve earned yourself the honour of…

What was that French dog doing on the course? We may never know.

China to blast rockets for rain free games.

They really are going all out to impress to world. A little too far perhaps.

Authorities in China have reavealed plans to fire rockets into the atmosphere to seed clouds and create a rain free 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Local scientists have come up with an ambitious plan to force the heavens to open by firing dozens of chemical-infused rockets at threatening storm clouds, forcing them to let the water pour before the set-piece spectacle gets underway.

“We will use catalytic agents to force the rain clouds over the National Stadium to fall down prior to the opening ceremony,” Zhang Qiang told the state-run China Daily.

However, the plan depends on accurate weather forecasts or spectators in the spectacular – but uncovered – National Stadium may get wet on August 8 next year after all.

“We are still in the experimental stage,” Zhang said.

“The lack of rain so far this summer is making it difficult to conduct more experiments and collect enough data. We need more rain.”

Wang Yubin, a Beijing meteorologist, said the weather bureau would use “catalytic agents to force rain clouds to burst, should there be any, hours before the (opening) ceremony”, to ensure good weather.

But he added: “The forecast will have to be fairly accurate or we will not be able to fulfil our mission … Cloud dispersal is more difficult than seeding, and we are working on it,” the paper quoted Wang as saying.

A more pressing problem facing the authorities is the poor air quality in Beijing and the smog which often blankets the rapidly-growing city.

Beijing has plans to shut down its factories and prohibit traffic during the Olympics in a bid to keep the air clean.

Looking foward to it.
