Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. (Wireless Flash) -- Finding your way around Boston can drive you crazy. It's the most challenging city to navigate in America, according to Avis, which based it decision on driving factors such as street layouts, congested freeways, days of rain and snow and complexity of directions needed to get from the airport to the city center. Meanwhile, Bakersfield, California, is the least-challenging city for driving, along with Anchorage, Alaska; and Fresno, California.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Terminator Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger terminated a novelty company from selling Bobblehead dolls of him dressed in a suit and carrying a gun. He sued the Ohio Discount Merchandise Inc., and has settled the suit. Terms include that the company can sell the doll without the gun, and a portion of the sales go to the nonprofit Arnold All-Stars after-school program in Los Angeles.

PITTSBURGH -- Hiccups are no laughing matter for Pennsylvania state representative Larry Roberts, who has been hospitalized after suffering a persistent bout of hiccups which started July 19. His condition seems to be improving; an aide from his office tells the "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette" there are "longer lapses" between the hiccups, although they haven't stopped.

LEONARD, N.D. -- Police have uncovered a meth lab in the kitchen of a rural North Dakota church. The find at Bethel Morovian Church near the town of Leonard didn't surprise one sheriff's lieutenant, who tells Minneapolis' "Star Tribune," "A church almost makes sense. If nobody is using the church during the week, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the possibilities."
