BERLIN (Reuters) – German police are struggling to explain why they chased a phantom serial killer for 16 years after confusion over an innocent woman's DNA samples.

Police in the southern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg had searched since 1993 for a woman they believed had taken part in more than 40 crimes, from murders to muggings. Her DNA was found repeatedly at crime scenes in Germany, France and Austria.

But the DNA came from an unsuspecting woman working at a factory in southern Germany, where cotton swabs are produced for the police force, investigators said.

They suspect she may have sneezed on the swabs used to collect evidence and contaminated them. This reproduced the woman's DNA matches despite her having nothing to do with any of the crimes.

Police had promised a 300,000 euro ($400,000) reward to anyone who helped find the elusive killer, thought to be involved in six murder cases. They held a news conference on Tuesday to respond to widespread criticism of the mix-up.

"The cotton swabs were contaminated through human contact in the factory where they were produced," Horst Hauk, a spokesman for the investigators, told Reuters.

Bernd Meiners, a spokesman for local prosecutors, said police first suspected something was wrong when a dead man's body produced female DNA earlier this month.

"As a result, we examined the cotton swabs that we used for collecting DNA samples and how they were manufactured," he said.

OK, Texas, Quit Fucking Around.

Watch Out!

You can't prepare for a zombie waiting behind a closed door, but at least we don't have to be surprised on our commute anymore. That is until the Austin Public Works gets involved. Thanks for nothing, Texas.

We're back

After a long hiatus (which is learned is NOT a disease caught by licking the backside of an infected trout), we are back to write about the things that 2 of us care about.   I don't have the ability to change the stupid Journey video Mark put up so you are kinda stuck with that for a while (I sincerely apologize for that).   That goes for the giant Devin you are faced with when opening the site.   It is a true test of one's fortitude to knowingly face that and still be brave enough to read on.   I for one thank you for that.   We will see what we can do about that.  

As soon as Devin begins racing again or doing anything exciting, we will relay that to you.   Alas, we are not expecting much.  

I leave you with these quotes from Yogi Berra:
What Bush should have learned - "If you ask me anything I don't know, I'm not going to answer."
What Bush did learn - "I never said most of the things I said."

There isn't much to say about this...
