    Old people... adorable. Will take full advantage of being able to do and say what I want without repercussion when I'm elderly. Something has to make up for the shitting in my pants.

    Saw that reported last night. One was they didn't know who did it and suspected a local parishioner. The next report on another site mentioned an 80 year old lady.

    I can imagine it so vividly.
    "Look at Jesus, the state he's in. Someone should fix that up a bit"
    *next day*
    "Well I've got some paint from painting the shed last year, maybe I should just touch it up a bit. It's disgraceful nobody takes care of this"
    hmm
    "A bit more here"
    Tss
    "not quite right"
    "A tad here"
    Hmmmm
    "Maybe if I add a little there?"
    Oh bollocks. I'll leave it like this. Not quite what I was hoping for but at least it's not in the awful state it was in before!"

    Brilliant. Next, US researchers confirm that putting a chimpanzee in a washing machine makes the chimp angry and disorientated.

    Man Bites Snake
    "A snake charmer told me that if a snake bites you, bite it until it is dead and nothing will happen to you," Mohammed Salmodin told the BBC.

    He has now been discharged from hospital where he was being treated for the snake bite.

    That fresco story has been one of the leading items on BBC News 24 all day today.

    The woman has denied saying that she acted without permission, stating that "anyone could see me, I didn't attempt to hide what I was doing".

    Which isn't quite the same as having permission to do it in the first place...

    Damnit, what was it? I'm assuming the violinist currently on stage didn't come out of the box.

    Scarves and lots of paper.

    They have left now. Must have found a paper beyond 2012.

    Anarchist US soldiers 'plotted government overthrow'. They had purchased land in Washington, over $50,000 of guns, and planned to blow up a dam, poison apple crops, and assassinate President Obama.

    The striking South African miners have been charged with the murder of their colleagues, even though it was the Police who fired the shots

    I'm not sure why this story isn't getting more scrutiny, tbh. Absolutely shocking events.

    It's very different to what you would expect. Even the trade union leaders are blaming their own union members, and the police really had no choice.

    It is just tragic all around.

    Apparently the miners had been violent and armed with knives and machetes. Some had been to witch-doctors who put spells on them to make them 'invulnerable' and a shop-keeper had been killed a few days ago.

    It's a desperately tragic series of events.

    Cyborg flesh is now reality.

    This could end up being pretty big news in the future.

    I'm waiting for the conspiracy nutters to get hold of it.

    Thailand is cracking down on people bringing counterfeit goods into the country.

    One of the more ridiculous things the government's announced recently.

    Bruce Willis is planning on fighting Apple for the right to pass on the contents of his iTunes account in his will.

    Nice to see someone with some money try to improve our rights to digital content.
