    I just don't even know where to start with this.

    Father sentenced to life in prison for 'murder' after daughter dies following MMR vaccine

    The comments are pretty disturbing too, "Not a single scrap of evidence that "Zyklon B murdered millions of jews"

    That vaccime story reads exactly like a fictional story made to go viral. Has the same lack of reputable sources to back up the main story too. I'm not saying it is, but it does enough to arouse some suspicion.

    Edit: Though I realise now that's probably the point being made.

    He was only looking for a good recipe for pulled pork :(

    Ohhh, you'll have DM in here describing what he rubs on his pulled pork.

    Vitamin pills are a waste of money, offer no health benefits and could be harmful

    What about cod liver oil?

    Yeh, it's pretty outrageous really the way some corners of the media have written about her. Fair play to the way she's reacted; it's a mature one and raises important questions.

    Walters' full interview with Lawrence will be broadcast on Wednesday night in the US as part of the ABC News special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013.

    Her list includes singer Miley Cyrus, Edward Snowden and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, otherwise known as KimYe.

    Prince George, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby son, also appears on the list.
    I see a bigger problem.

    I'm sure most people have already seen the BBC article on Candy Crush and, while it's fairly interesting, this part:

    Candy Crush Saga owes a debt to the likes of Tetris and Bubble Bobble, both of which captivated audiences in the 1980s
    really annoyed me. The Tetris similarities go no deeper than the fact they are both puzzle games and PUZZLE Bobble was 90's and even then it's only loosely related. Worse than this the article mentions the almost mechanically identical Bejeweled in the next paragraph, surely a title it owes more of a debt to.

    You know the medias fucked up when they consider women like Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton as 'fat'. Jesus Christ.

    Blimey.

    ... I was there only four weeks ago!

    Apollo Theatre's roof collapses

    The play is equally as outstanding as the book is.

    Hope there are no fatalities.
