A pilot, an Architect a Hotelier and a “prophet” all have some Orgonite…

Four men recently were arrested in Mozambique for polluting a water source. Apparently "In reality, the quartet didn't want to hurt anyone. They were only trying to keep the Illuminati from controlling the world through microwaves."

Well, I'm glad that's all they were really doing! It's a good thing there gentlemen are out there, "purifying" our water with fiberglass.

Mysterious Worms Invade China

What do you do when your normally green and lush grazing pastures become over-run with mysterious worms? For the fifty herdsmen in northwest China, there is no answer but to move. The worms are one inch long, green, with thorns and black stripes, and are packed up to 3,000 per square meter. Samples of the worms have been sent to Xinjiang Agricultural University for identification, but so far the usual methods of dealing with such an invasion (chickens, ducks and other birds) has not been successful. The Story.

Your Daily Loser - How drunk do you have to be to think that your town's water tower is a threat? Raymond Maresh of Garfield, Arkansas, was arrested for firing three rounds at the water tower, causing it to spring a leak and doing $15,000.00 worth of damage. The Story.

Jury Duty - Customer: Excuse me, kindly Mr. Radio Shack Employee, I would like to return this item. I have a receipt and I am within my 30 days and...
Employee: No.
Customer: Might I speak with a manager, please?
Employee: I don't like your attitude. *punches customer in face until cops arrive*
Sad, but true. The Story and Mugshot.
