Because my birthtown was in the News, I decided to break the rules

Capitalization of News in the statement relevant?

Is Worms also your birthtown?

Rules = on here? in real life?

Rules = the law? the rules of a certain establishment/business (e.g. the house rules of a restaurant, gym, hotel...)? social etiquette? "personal" rules (e.g. no carbs after 6pm)?

Was your birth town in the news because of something that happened there? If so, is it something that could only happen there? or something that could also happen elsewhere (e.g. a crime or a natural disaster)? Was the the thing that happened positive? negative? neutral?

Do you still live in that town? Relevant?

The thing that happened in your birth town - an accident? a political event? a sports event? something business-related? something weather-related?
Did someone die? Did someone get hurt? Did something get destroyed?

Did you break one rule? several? Is/Are the rule(s) related to... food? exercise? media consumption? money? hygiene? interacting with others?

Is it a rule you've set for yourself? Number of concurrent puzzles relevant? Time between posting new puzzles? Theme of puzzles?

Did you ever post a puzzle related to the news of your birthtown? (Besides this one.)

Is your birthtown also in Germany? relevant where it is?

Are you planning to post a puzzle based on what happened in your birth town?

Is the rule that you don't post puzzles to which the answer can easily be googled?

Is the rule that you would not do a puzzle based on how you came up with or why you decided to do the puzzle? or does your birthplace specifically have to be involved to break the rule?

Did you decide to break the rule because you found the news interesting? because you wanted to perplex us with a meta puzzle?

Are you breaking because you find the News so interesting you can't help but pass it along?

Was the news comical in some way?

Ok, to avoid spilitting hairs with terminology - the news were tied to a lateral puzzle (but not from the LTPF nor a classic)

Did the news story explicitly mention a lateral puzzle? Was the story itself reminiscent of a lateral puzzle? If so, did it involve midgets? albatrosses? dead fish? broken glass? guns?

The relevant puzzle does not involve any of these (and no lighthouses and melting ice either)

Did the news story have any elements that are also relevant in a lateral puzzle? If so, are professions relevant? names? objects? animals?
