More Proof the Japanese Cannot Be Out-Crazied...

Apparently this series, Cat Shit One, is based on a manga called Cat Shit One: Apocalypse Meow that was set during the Vietnam War.

Egypt tries to hang up on killer SMS rumours - Yahoo! News UK

The Egyptian government has sought to dispel rumours that a mobile phone text message "from unknown foreign quarters" is spreading around the country and killing those who receive it.

The extraordinary move by Egypt's health and interior ministries follows press reports that an SMS containing a special combination of numbers killed a man in the town of Mallawi south of Cairo.

"He died vomiting blood,followed by stroke, shortly after he received a message from an unknown phone number," the Egyptian Gazette reported on Wednesday.

As Good an Excuse as Any, I Guess...

A mind dismembered: In search of the magical penis thieves—By Frank Bures (Harper's Magazine)

A few days after I arrived in Lagos, an article appeared in the newspaper. The headline read: court remands man over false alarm on genital organ disappearance. According to the paper, a young man named Wasiu Karimu was on a bus when he “was said to have let out a strident cry, claiming that his genital organ had disappeared. He immediately grabbed [Funmi] Bello, who was seated next to him, and shouted that the woman should restore his ‘stolen’ organ.” They got off the bus, and a crowd of “miscreants” swarmed around the woman, ready to kill her. But a passing police patrol intervened, stopped her from being lynched, and escorted them both to the police station, where Karimu told the commissioner “his organ was returning gradually.” The paper gave the exact address where Wasiu Karimu lived, so I decided to try and find out what exactly had transpired in his pants.

Is it Wrong That I Laughed at This?

I Am At a Loss For a Title...

'Radioactive' sex offender on the run - Telegraph

The 42-year-old was due to face trial for downloading indecent images of children but fled Britain after receiving large doses of radiotherapy treatment for a thyroid condition.

Southwark Crown Court heard that Mr Leopold could harm anyone he comes into contact, due to the radiation.

Judge John Price said: "Please warn officers that when he is arrested he might be radioactive."

He added: "This is not a joke."

I Think This Headline Says it All...
