Hearing about this keeps reminding me of the Shackleton Expedition, as the the 100th anniversity is this year.

Also from Australia -- is there nothing duct tape can't do?

Man accused in banana assault

Postby Dataprime » Thu Jan 02, 2014 12:08 pm

A Florida man spent new years day behind bars, after sheriff's
deputies say he assaulted his live in girlfriend with a banana.
Smolinsky's live-in girlfriend told them he threw a banana at her. Smolinsky
denied the accusation and told deputies she threw the banana at him.


Smolinsky now faces charges of domestic battery and
resisting arrest without violence. Deputies are holding him in jail without bond

Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado On First Day of Legalization :facepalm:

According to a report in the Rocky Mountain News, 37 people were killed across the state on January 1st,
the first day the drug became legal for all adults to purchase. Several more are clinging onto life in local emergency rooms and are
not expected to survive.

EDIT: FAKE

They got too damn excited, unfortunately, like as if Prohibition was lifted.

Not surprisingly they banned it.

Meanwhile a class action suit is being prepared against EA for alleged antitrust violations.


Why didn't they just ban the "China Rising" DLC?

I fear there may be another war on the Korean peninsula in the near future, the new regime appears to lacking any sense of practicality of self-restraint.

Wait a moment, that pot story was a joke? :fuyu_facepalm:

And as for North Korea, it's the personal fiefdom of a family of maniacs, and if it weren't for China they'd have collapsed long ago. Worst part? They have nukes, and unlike other countries in the world, are completely willing to use them.

For those of you that use social media, I'm linking to this because the sensationalism of this "story" is pissing me off.
