Mr. Madoff Goes To Jail

Madoff_in_jail It's a sad state of affairs that there are people in the world who come to a point in their life where they think that the best thing they can do with their life is to strap a bunch of explosives to their torso and walk into a group of innocent civilians and blast them to smithereens. Most of the time, you just hear about it afterwards, but in this case, an (un)lucky photographer caught the blast in a series of photographs probably well before he or anyone at the religious procession knew what was going on. (From I heart chaos)

Kim Jong Ill

Kim_jong_il Kim Jong Il inspected a collective farm and found some cute little pigs. He decided to take a picture with those pigs. That evening, a North Korean newspaper editor was put in the awkward situation of writing a caption for that picture to go in the paper.
“Well… ‘Comrade Kim Jong Il among pigs..’”
“No, ‘The pigs are with Comrade Kim Jong Il.’”
“That doesn't work either.”
Finally, the paper was published the next day with the caption, ‘Comrade Kim Jong Il is third from the left.’

62,006 - the number killed in the 'war on terror'. If estimates of other, unquantified, deaths - of insurgents, the Iraq military during the 2003 invasion, those not recorded individually by Western media, and those dying from wounds - are included, then the toll could reach as high as 180,000
