Bird poop facial will cost you $180 in NYC

Bird poop for beauty? That's what goes into facials at a luxury spa where the traditional Japanese treatment using imported Asian nightingale excrement mixed with rice bran goes for $180 a pop. About 100 women and men go into the Shizuka New York skin care salon, just off Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, each month to get the treatment, which is promoted as a way to keep the face soft and smooth using an enzyme in the poop to gently exfoliate the skin. Spa owner Shizuka Bernstein, a Tokyo native married to an American, has been offering what she calls the Geisha Facial for about five years.

Man pays with 4 tons of quarters

A southern Illinois businessman has paid off part of a court-ordered legal settlement with nearly 4 tons of quarters packed into dozens of bags. Roger Herrin of Harrisburg was ordered by an appellate court to repay $500,000 in insurance money related to a 2001 car accident in which his teenage son died. So in protest, Herrin repaid nearly a third of the money — $150,000 — with 50-pound bags of quarters he had trucked in by the Federal Reserve bank in St. Louis. Herrin says he paid in quarters because paying in pennies wasn't feasible.

Police: Robber loses his sneakers

Police in central Pennsylvania are hoping to find the person who fits a pair of pink shoes he left behind after police say he accosted a woman, took $200 from her, then fled on a neon green bike. Altoona police Lt. Jeffrey Pratt tells the Altoona Mirror, "We have his shoes" — a pair of pink Adidas. Police say the suspect ran out of his shoes before hopping on a black-and-neon-green-colored BMX-style bike and peddling away.
