Man in a red skull mask robs a bank, foiled by Jewish vigilantes
The irony is quite delicious in this story, if you follow comic books
Monkey is dead ringer for Albert Einstein
Like the German scientist, the stump-tailed macaque is a rare breed – but his home is in Malaysia where he was snapped swinging from trees at Taiping National Park.
‘As soon as I saw the baby monkey, my very first thought was that it looked like Einstein and that I needed to get some shots of it to prove it,’ said amateur photographer Prof Mihail Nazarov, 66.
‘When I got back home, I looked back through the shots and could see the similarities between the monkey and Einstein even more.
‘I love these pictures and the feeling of capturing something which is so unusual and amazing.’
Albert Einstein took his place in the history books in the early 20th century and is regarded as the father of modern physics for developing the E=MC² theory of relativity.
His lookalike may not be a contender for the Nobel Prize but then again he is only a baby.

Jury finds Doctor not liable for setting patient on fire during C-Section.
As son lies in hopsital, parents seek his sperm.
^ I read the article. If he were their only child, I would understand their wish to collect his sperm as their only chance of getting grandchildren, and having some part of their son live on. But he's not their only child. They have another son who will presumably give them grandchildren, plus two daughters that were half-sisters to the brothers. I think they should let it go. After all, there's no guarantee that he would have given them grandchildren had he lived either. They should just consider it as if one of their sons didn't want children. Plus, if they want his legacy to live on, donating the son's (who is now braindead) organs would be a great way to do that, and in a way that will touch and help many families beyond measure. Although they may already be planning to do that.
Now to a more disturbing story: Man sues wife for being ugly, is awarded $120 000 in damages.
Tennessee Man makes deathbed murder confession - then recovers
A Tennessee con confessed to a 17-year-old murder on his deathbed before making a miraculous recovery --- and will now spend the rest of his life in prison for the crime.
James Washington thought he was dying from a heart attack while in prison in 2009 when, in a last-ditch effort to clear his conscience, he told a guard that he murdered a woman named Joyce Goodener in Nashville in 1995, local NBC reported.
"He kind of got as best as he could, motioned, and said, 'I have something to tell you. I have to get something off my conscience and you need to hear this,’” the guard, James Tomlinson, told the station.
“He said, 'I killed somebody. I beat her to death.’”
Goodener’s body had been found in an empty house stabbed in the neck, set on fire and bludgeoned to death with a cinder block, the station reported.
Washington had been a person of interest, but investigators were never able to pin the murder on him and the case had gone cold.
"I didn't have any trust in the system. All of a sudden, I got this phone call and they said, 'We think we found him,'" Goodener's daughter, Sonya Kimbrell, said.
Washington, who was in jail for a separate crime when he confessed, tried to take back the deathbed confession in court, but was convicted of murder late last month.
He’ll serve at least 51 years in prison, the station reported.

Bummer for him. Can't say I feel very sorry for him, though.
Here's a feel-good story....an Irish advertising/marketing agency has turned some of the worst feedback from their clients into a series of A3 posters. They are selling prints for £10 each. (about $16)
All of the proceeds will go to Temple Street Children's Hospital.
South Korea opens a Toilet-themed Amusement Park/Museum.
A woman in Arizona ran over her husband in a parking lot because he didn't vote.
Saw that one in the Election Day reaction JCC post.
Before or after the results?
After. She voted for Romney according to the news reports and was upset that he didn't vote.
crazy lady doesnt understand the electoral college. typical
Just when I thought I'd heard everything--this takes the cake. I know that adults get to make their own decisions about this, but really--I think the poor guy needed a shrink.
1. I always thought that was a woman....
John McAfee on the quest for "Super Perv Powder."
The next quest will probably be to eat someone's face.
I always knew McAfee products were a bit suspicious.
Man puts face on sale on eBay. Is payed 15 000 to tattoo the Romney/Ryan campaign logo on the side of his head.
Here he in on Jimmy Kimmel's show.
It's been done before
What he did has been done before or an article about him has been posted before? If it's the former, someone has tattooed a campaign logo/slogan on their face before? If that's true, that makes me sad for the state of humankind.
People have done it before. One guy had a temp one done to advertise, but none the less it isn't new.
In other political news...with all of the hub-bub over people petitioning the President for secession of their state....
It turns out that one of those petitions was triggered in part by the closure of a topless car wash.
I **** you not.
