    There's just too much good stuff to post it all seperately (except the Blanco thing, which deserves its own thread), so here's a few things I have found today that are...amusing. I found all of the following at fark.com

    The UK has approved gastric stapling for obese children. In other news, there's apparantly no picture of fat kids other than the kid at McDonald's in a baseball cap.

    The UK has also banned candles at a traditional Christmas service, so people wouldn't catch their hair on fire.

    A kid in Alberta becomes the latest 'car surfing' casualty. The police are blaming the 'Jackass' on TV, rather than the jackass who was dumb enough to try to stand on a moving car.

    Israeli sattelite provider Yes TV has dropped BBC World in favor of Al-Jazeera English, because even Al-Jazeera is kinder to Israel than the BBC.

    A murder charge was dropped in a PS3 shooting. Why? The grand jury foreman accidentally checked the wrong box.

    Ok, that's it for now. Enjoy.
