The Facebook quote attributed to this creep is a nearly direct lift from one of the "Bane" character's lines in the movie "The Dark Knight Rises." I wonder if that's who he fancies himself to be.

This one, unfortunately, is still up

Officers kicked, spit at arresting bat-wielding woman, police say

Kicking and spitting at someone wielding a bat seems an odd reaction

US student is rescued from giant vagina sculpture in Germany.

Police confirmed that the firefighters turned midwives delivered the student "by hand and without the application of tools".

The mayor of Tübingen told the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that he struggled to imagine how the accident could have happened, "even when considering the most extreme adolescent fantasies. To reward such a masterly achievement with the use of 22 firefighters almost pains my soul."

I guess he wanted bragging rights about being tight even in a huge vagina. Should have gone head first, kid.

UPDATE: Charges pending for man held in suitcase remains

http://www.nbc15.com/home/headlines/2-b ... 99641.html

WTF? Why are you charging a man who was held in a suitcase? Excessive baggage charge at the airport?

And why are these pending charges remaining? Remaining from what?

What actually happens when a missile strikes a plane?


Apparently ABC News believes that their entire audience is in the first grade.

They're competing with Fox, after all.

Not a headline, but from today's TPM news:
He said he believes the legislation would "go a long way" to mitigating the problem of thousands of Central American countries
seeking refuse in the United States.

Which of the the thousands of Central American countries will we instead be shipping our refuse too?
