Tony Blair is trying to mend relations with Britain. Even if he manages to patch things up, I think tensions with England and the UK will remain high.
A cub scout sold $25,000 worth of popcorn. I wish they'd publish his photograph so that I'd know to duck-and-cover when I see him coming. I just know if I ever meet him it's going to be bad news for my pocketbook.
Peace keepers kill a young Christian woman in Numan.
Better boil your water in New Jersey, unless you like decomposing flesh in your beverages.
According to some random actress, we're "slaughtering trees" to make "toilet paper". Ok, yeah, well, given her position on the issue, I'm sure not ever going to shake her hand!
In yet another medical miracle, a man who almost drowned was frozen back to life (hypothermic shock).
This reminds of the Russian ice surgeons. State of the art equipment was never very rampant in the old USSR, kind of a side effect of communism. So doctors made do with what they had available. The Russian ice surgeons performed heart transplants by injecting their patients with adrenaline-supressants and immersing them in ice baths until their hearts stopped beating. Then they had ~90 minutes to perform a heart transplant/surgery before brain death.
You may think that everybody steals hotel towels, but some guests go a little bit further than that. How did they get that thing out the door?
Quite fortunate that we stepped up security after 911. Otherwise, people might be able to sneak butcher knives onboard airfcaft. Oh, wait...
Besides, isn't the pilot getting sucked out a much bigger concern?
Uh oh, science is a threat to your political claims. Better call and protest the experiment so it doesn't happen. (Homosexual groups protest the introduction of female penguins into a group of males.)
In related news, "no tolerance for ex-homosexuals."
I could have told you five years ago that the UN had a major problem with pedophilia, among other things. Especially in Africa. It seems that it's only now with the aftermath of the U.N. for food scandal that these things seem to be making the news. Here's a story where they not only raped and pillaged (literally), they took pictures.
Of course, don't expect this to get anywhere near the coverage of Abu Ghraib. The media has kind of a soft spot for the UN.
This is a neat idea: a robotic ball that chases robbers, taking pictures. It can go as fast as 20mph. Personally, if I were going to rob someone's house, cool robotic balls that roll around on their own would be on the top of my "stuff to steal" list; but at the very least I bet it would be great for terrifying kitty-kats!
In yet more support of the meme "Call 911 and die," Omaha police report that on average it takes 11 minutes to respond to 911 calls.
Imagine waiting 11 minutes while someone is trying to kill/rape you! By the time the police show up, you'll be lying in a pool of blood and your assailant will have already checked his email on your computer, helped himself to your fridge, grabbed some valuables, and hauled his butt 10 blocks away.
I'm not old enough yet, but for everyone who is, for heaven's sake buy a gun!
Finally, what's the absolute last thing you would ever think about using to cure cancer. How about the HIV virus!
