An online classified ad offering Shanghai women as much as 3,000 yuan ($588) per day to "test condoms" while having sexual activity with men was removed from Baixing.com, the Chinese equivalent of Craigslist, after netizens on Weibo began speculating that it could be a recruiting advertisement for prostitution. According to the Youth Daily's interview with an employee of the condom manufacturing company, normally machines are used to test condoms but the firm can't afford to buy as many as they would need. On a side note, human condom testing has been offered as a job in other parts of the world.

In a move that many in the U.S. might consider a mere slap on the wrist, a court in Norway has found Anders Behring Breivik sane and sentenced him to just 21 years in prison for the 2011 massacre of 77 people at a youth camp on Utoya Island.

The sentence is the most severe Breivik could have received under Norwegian law; it can be extended at a later date if he is still found to be a danger to society (which of course he will be).

"Now we won't hear about him for quite a while. Now we can have peace and quiet," said Per Balch Soerensen, whose daughter was killed in the shooting.
