New York Harbor is filled with a lot of neat stuff.

Your bizarre news for the day:

1. Making scumbaggery a little greener:
discounts to brothel patrons who arrive on bicycle.
Customers who arrive on bicycle or who can prove they took public transportation get a 5-euro (4 pounds) discount from the usual 70-euro ($100) fee for 45 minute sessions, Goetz told Reuters. He said the environmentally friendly offer was working.
2. Television advertisement showing Israeli Soldiers and Palestinians playing soccer over the West Bank barrier is "disturbing" because "in reality, if a Palestinian comes close to the fence to return a football ... he is likely to get shot."

3. The bottoms of New York City's harbors still house 1,600 bars of silver, if you can find them amid the junk and the 4-foot-long, wood-eating worms.

4. CLASSIC: The Rubber Room- Where naughty New York Teachers go to wait and die.
The room in question was about 1,100 square feet and on blueprints submitted to the Fire Department was designed to hold 26 people. On this day, it contained upward of 75. It had no windows, no land phone, no Internet access, no wall decorations, not even a clock. Any personal belongings left overnight were removed by custodians.
