More Things to Worry About on Friday

The Japanese pension agency has screwed people about as well as America's subprime mortgage market has, but here's the difference: A serial killer is loose in Japan, exactly revenge against the mismanagers. Washington Post

Another instance of "first, he actually thought of it" and then "he actually carried it out": A Belgian artist tattoos pigs, puts them on display, and sells the hide after they're slaughtered. Reuters

Fine Points of the Law: He was a convicted felon in possession of a gun, but the prosecutor couldn't prove the date of manufacture of the gun, which makes it a non-gun under federal law, but the guy's still going away because he was in felony possession of bullets. KETV (Omaha)

Another dog driving: In Port Jefferson, N.Y., a boxer/Shar-Pei mix drove into a coffee shop. (Bonus: About a mile off the coast of North Carolina, anglers picked up a Labrador retriever. Sound familiar? [News of the Weird Daily, 11-7-2008].) Newsday /// News and Observer (Raleigh)

Buried Lede: In a story about increasing theft of virtual goods in online games (Second Life, et al), it was revealed that, in a real world of 6.7 billion total people, there are more than 1 billion accounts for playing online games. The Guardian

Fried pork skin? You guys eat some weird stuff down there.

The funny thing is Jules, that they talk about how they are all eating low carbs and pork skins are mainly protein. Then they drop them in a big ol' tub of oil and fry them.
